"... it was known as SOE Fan Faire." -- They've been doin it for a long time, I know. But the cute pun still gives me a chuckle every now and then, LOL.

EQ next will hopefully stay true to the original. No easy mode, hand-holding wow imitation please. Make it difficult in places with genuine penalties for failure. 

Not sure if they'd get away with making it like that after all the MMOs of recent years have spoon fed players to the point they expect everything to be given to them.

Very curious to see where they go with a third EQ, after having sunk hundreds of hours into the first two.  The MMO landscape has changed a lot in the last 8.5 years.

Meh, EQ3 has been in development for so long they would have to do something pretty awesome for me to still be interested in it.
