All its servers going F2P and the release of Age of Discovery weren't enough to put EverQuest II in the running. The F2P population boom in DC Universe Online's and its recent Lightning Strikes update weren't enough to create competition. Nope. The allure of Lineage II's F2P mode and the launch of the Goddess of Destruction expansion were just too much for voters to pass up.
Now it's your turn to start steering my course in the lands of Lineage II. Race, class, gender and my first class-transfer are all on the table.
I've tried to make voting as easy and clear as possible, but given how each race, and gender determine which classes you can choose from, you should make an effort to understand how all the choices work. Here's one example: Voting Dwarf and then Mystic is wasting a vote because Dwarves can only be Fighters, and it skews the results for those who are voting for a race that can be Mystics. You'll see what I mean.
This new guided tour through the game does hint that a player could reach level 20 in as little as an hour and level 40 in two more hours. That isn't happening. Let me fill you in on how slow I am. I've never once been level-capped in any MMO I've ever played. I have this magical ability to try my darndest yet still lag far behind the average casual player. The good news is that I likely won't want to level nearly as fast as the site says I can, anyway, because I'd be whizzing past choices you should be making for me.
You have your homework. It's due by Friday. Once the polls are closed, I'll get to creating and playing my first week and report my findings. Also, keep an eye on Massively TV's MV Guide for next week. I'll be cooking up some livestreaming of the game during my journey!
Jeremy Stratton needs more MMOs to play. Seriously. The imaginary doctor who lives in his head gave him a prescription. The problem is, he's too flighty. He never knows just what MMO to try or how long to stick with it in order to get the most of it. That's why he needs you to tell him what game to play and how to play it every Wednesday in Choose My Adventure!
