Everquest Next: Landmark, the next big thing?

Everquest next: Landmark.

I think SOE is about to break out and climb back up on top.  It’s hard to think that, as a gamer, a company would actually listen to a player base and make improvements, but as a company, SOE has made huge strides recently.    The unprecedented amount of communication from David Georgeson and the rest of the Team on EQNL has blown the MMO world away.  If future devs don’t match or try to come close to the level SOE is pushing out on this, they are going to have it rough.  We will cut you.  This new standard in communication is hereby dubbed “The Ponytail Standard”


It’s late, I have attached a group of screenshots from Everquest Next: Landmark.
