Farewell to EQOA


[url][sign in to see URL]

It's Time to Bid a Fond Farewell

It is with a heavy heart that we announce today the imminent sunsetting of four of our long-standing game services on March 29, 2012, including Cosmic Rift®, Infantry®, Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga and EverQuest® Online Adventures. Each of these games shares a special place in both ours and our players' hearts. This is not an easy decision, but there comes a time when it's best for our developers to move on to the next adventure, and that day has come.

As a reward to the players of EverQuest® Online Adventures, we will be giving you 3 months of Gold Membership in both EverQuest® and EverQuest® II. We greatly appreciate all of you and hope that you choose to join us in another version of the Norrath that we all love. These gold memberships will be available starting on Friday, March 16, 2012.

We would like to thank our players for their loyalty and for sharing the good times on these games. It's been a blast. And we hope to keep gaming with all of you in our other great games here at SOE. Let's keep pushing the boundaries of MMO gaming together!

Sincerely,
The SOE team

It is a very sad day indeed. While most of us no longer play it, it will always remain in our hearts and minds.

I am surprised it held out this long. EQOA will always be special to me. In the meantime, I encourage all Knights to rally in SWTOR. It's time to write a new chapter.

Re: Farewell to EQOA


I was just in the basement this weekend cleaning up and came across my (I'm embarrassed to say how big) stash of quest walkthroughs, armor crafting notes, maps, build plans, etc. I sat for a while trying to decide to "keep or toss" ... it got kept, you know, "just in case..."

Sigh.

Oh well, LOTRO rocks. SW? Too much technology, blech. emoticon (flame war on!) LOL

RIP, EQOA, RIP.

If Sony announced free access to all closed accounts for this last month, I would do everything I could get get my PS2 running to jump into EQoA one last time.

Not too long ago, I was wishing I still had the old PS2 to fire up a couple months of EQOA for a stroll down memory lane.

I know we've all said it before, but there's never been any game since that's even come close.

And I'm with you Gnelle, blech on the techno angle of an MMORPG. Give me the olde days with elves, dwarves, trolls, sword and sorcery any day!

Well, we can still hope for EQNext . . .

Re: Farewell to EQOA


I logged in with my old station account and it knew I played EQPC but it had no record of my EQOA account!

RIP EQOA

Re: Farewell to EQOA


Whew it broke my heart. I can't believe it, even though it makes perfect sense that it wouldn't last forever.

Still a blow to the shins though.
