Still up and running, actually.WoW comes along, EQ fanbois continue to deny that anything will ever bring it down... where is EQ now?
not always. Even C++ clients often have elements that aren't time-critical (i.e., not related to graphics or animation) written in a different language. Blizzard/Rift AddOns are the best known example (even some of Blizzard's own UI is written in Lua, not just player-made addons).
Server-side, things tend to be considerably more varied. For example, it is well known (because the developers have talked about it at length) that EVE Online runs on top of Stackless Python.
Yea, EQ still got tons of expansions post-Warcraft. They even have time locked servers now. EQ2 still running as well w/ xpacs and all to this very day.
Quite good games. Maybe the best MMOs ever made in total honesty. Certainly EQ1 is the quintessential MMO.
There's still so much I love about the first EverQuest, and so many elements that I wish modern developers didn't just abandon.Quite good games. Maybe the best MMOs ever made in total honesty. Certainly EQ1 is the quintessential MMO.
