As I predicted last month, my time in EQ2 has drawn to a close, and I logged out for the last time this evening. I've had an on-off-and-on-again relationship with the game over the last 7 years, but my last year in the game has left me both impressed with the progress made during my absence, and fearful for the future of the game as it moves to a free-to-play model in the shadow of SWTOR.
So, farewell then EQ2. One of the best MMOs out there, with a thriving and generally friendly community. I wish you well.
I'd also like to thank Acolytes of Valor for making the last year so enjoyable. Hopefully I'll see some of you again in new lands.
For my part I'll be spending the next few weeks continuing to beta test before the launch of The Old Republic.
