Thanks for a Great Weekend!

Written by Feldon on . Posted in SOE Live (Fan Faire)

This is EQ2Wire’s second anniversary and third year covering Fan Faire. We are proud to have documented this event and provided up-to-the-minute information for thousands of players who couldn’t make it. I say thousands because our previous record — the expansion launch on February 16th generated 6,300 unique visits. Yesterday, we nearly broke 10,000 unique visits.

It was a pleasure to meet so many people in the EQ2 community at Fan Faire this year. We spent more time with devs and with players to get more on-the-ground information and reactions. I heard from so many that suggested to their guildies at home follow the live blogs here at EQ2Wire. Thanks! Even some folks in the panels were reading EQ2Wire because the speakers were so quiet.

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to Dethdlr who kept an eye on the steady stream of Comments, and also posted his reactions as the events transpired. Also, Calthine and Cyliena of EQ2 ZAM, Niami from EQ2Traders, Jaye and Ferrel of A View From the Top who invited me to join their guilds at a fantastic dinner. We spent a bunch of time with their guildies and they are just great folks.

To the EQ2 devs, I give you guys a hard time but we play this game because of its depth and quality, and we appreciate the long hours you put into making a game that works for so many different types of players. Also a shout out to Aurelis from the EQ2 ZAM chat channel who I finally got to meet. If you have a question about books in EQ2, contact the EQ2 librarian. ;)

I know I am forgetting some folks and will hear from them shortly… Sorry!!!

Thanks again all, and stay tuned in the coming days as we continue to provide the EQ2 coverage our readers look to first.

Sleep beckons…

    Thanks again Feldon for all your feedbacks.
    It’s not that easy for European based players to join Fan Fair, but reading your posts made it closer.
    I may book my week end there next year 8)

    Thanks for the updates man. You were pretty much the only reliable source of info this weekend since SOE decided to /finger everyone who didn’t attend fanfaire by effectively shutting us out of the loop.

    As I am moving to Europe I can absolutely commiserate about those issues especially lack of expansion availability.

    It was great finally meeting you, Feldon!

    Thank goodness you sat down to talk to me, because I think I would’ve lost function in my neck trying to crane it to look at you. Did I mention you’re TALL?! (:

    I’m still being lazy with my updates! You’re a trooper for getting things up so quickly. That flight home isn’t easy!
