I tried to get into Fippy Darkpaw on Tuesday and managed it briefly, but on subsequent logon attempts I failed – the server was full. Turns out interest is so high that SOE’s launched a second progression server, named Vulak’Aerr.
I say good for EQ. I have no nostalgic fondness for it, but there’s no question its a special game. It remains to be seen just how popular this’ll be after the complimentary time winds up over the weekend, but I have a hunch that the effort will raise EQ’s visibility for a while, even if there’s a dip come next week. Score one for the good old days!
