What a disaster. Logged on. Notice that my player window still WAI. I used the default UI for many things. EQ cut off slots on all my bags back to 8 slots, I didnt check every bag tho. The biggest (get your surprise looks ready ..) thing that they did was, omg, all worn gear was rendered unusable, I could only use default or common gear I was told. No clickies, including mounts! So many things that was hard earned over the year all totally unusable without a sub. But you can log on atleast...hell EQ2 was not that harsh when it transitioned to F2P. I guess the more hardcore you are the farther over you are bent.
The good side is that they lowered the price of subs, to 12 bucks. As long as it was recurring, the new system also includes a monthly-non-recurring payment equivalent sub for the same low low price of 14.99.
Ugg....needless to say, I didnt stick around long. The graphics, after playing newer games like Tera and LOTRO, omfg how did we ever call that playable?? I had a headache in not time flat.
