Of the following post on SOE’s EQOA site on 9/22:
It’s strange to me that a “massive” multiplayer online RPG hosts a “meet and greet.” By no means am I criticizing SOE. I appreciate the gesture but I think this is their attempt to get a basic head count of who pays attention to their site. Yet the timing of this is a bit late and would have been perfect in 2003. EQOA has always been rooted in community contact. I met most of my in-game friends through groups, not shout chat in Freeport. Overall, I’m missing how this benefits the community and extends the lifespan of the game.
Thankfully there were prizes. If anyone went to this, what kind of stuff was given out?
