This is my Opinion!!! A gamers blog

EverQuest II Copies World of Warcraft!!! Really?


I’m sorry but I have to laugh, I have been getting hit after hit on my blog about eq2 copying wow.  WOW really, A MMO copying another MMO, I would have never thought something like that could happen? Man, I just don’t know what to think, or What to do with news like this. Oh I know, Because they all copy each other dumb ass!!! Even UO (Ultima Online And no, I do not want to debate it) copied from other’s.

Now look, Any one who know any thing knows EQ2 took the battlegrounds from WOW, Hell they didn’t even try and rename it. It even has all the same games in it as WOW. Whats the big deal? Do you think that WOW did not take stuff from EQ or even EQ2? World of Warcraft Cataclysm ring a bell? Hmmm oh that’s right, That’s what SOE did to come up with the new story line/Lore for EQ2. There was a CATACLYSM!!!

Damn kid’s, Stay off my lawn!!!

  1. Don’t forget that all WoW ripped off EQ, which ripped off RuneScape, which ripped off Meridian 59, which was a ripoff of MUDs, which were a ripoff of D&D, which ripped off TOLKIEN!!111eleven! And even then Tolkien just ripped off various parts of European mythology.

    It’s like some kind of vicious cycle!

  2. Kind of find it odd though that its always WoW that’s ripped off, never another MMO that already had that feature. In this case you could say that EQ2 copied WAR?

    Or maybe they ripped off (their own game) SWG which I also hear has battlegrounds?

  3. WoW copied EQ big time and from other MMO’s. EQ didnt really get a ton of ideas because there wasnt 3000 MMO’s like today * even worse that some game companies have like 6 or 7 MMO games *cough*(NC Soft)

  4. Also EQ 2 came out in 2004. EP’s from EQ2 seem to be original the ones that seem to be SIMILAR * very similar* are Ones that came from WoW after EQ 2’s EP. EQ2 base game didnt copy WoW because they both came out the same year. Cant Make a game that big in under a year…. Also I a big fan of Sony (please tell me you got that or kill yourself please 🙂 ) SOE Sony Online Entertainment.

    EQ2 only came out a week or two at most before WoW. I remember buying both games at the same time, both were considered new releases.
