I played til I hit 55 a few months ago. Once I saw how the end game worked with guilds having fully buffed characters camped at every big target, I decided against continuing
They overhauled the raid system since then. I'll put it this way. My guild "Taken" has killed every Kunark/Classic mob outside of VP after the changes and has legitimately competed for FFA mobs against the neckbeards. The variance was reduced and the amount of people from any guild allowed to track in a zone during a raid window is limited to 2.
For those who miss old EQ. The server population is around 1300. They have legitimate server staff to police RMT, petitions, etc. Boxing is not allowed and will get you perma-banned if caught.
Classic EQ was my favorite MMO ever played by quite a vast margin, and this server really does an excellent job of providing that experience.
It's free. All you need is a copy of Titanium.
