* EQ1 at one time, but was never fully supported, and got yanked not too long after a long delayed port

Actually, last time I looked at http://www.eqmac.com, the EQ server for the Mac (Al'Kabor) was still up and running and there was still people playing it. The biggest guilds on the server are still debating whether or not to wake the Sleeper.

I stopped playing and paying for the game when WoW came out, though.

My first impressions after trying to TRY the trial with a couple friends are that SOE either should fix their registration or clean up their EQ2 forum handles. It seems highly unlikely that nicks such as Ballebongasdf12344321asdf and the likes already are taken.

I thought there was a bug that prevented them from waking the sleeper. A bug that they don't have anyone on staff to fix. (I understand the game has not been patched in like 2 years now).

Do they even get expansions?

According to those forums, the sole coder/programmer for the server left SoE in August of last year and they haven't had one since.

Somehow the players there continue to convince themselves that playing that game is fun.

So does Apple's announcement about using Intel chipsets mean that Mac people can play with Windows people or does it just mean faster Macs? Assuming only the latter, this would be a good time to bruch off the Mac marketing team at SOE. There cannot be that many MMOGs for Macs.

I have never played WoW.

Every Blizzard game, afaik comes with Mac binaries. I think Diablo 2 was the last one that had both a mac and windows variant. Or maybe it was diablo 1. Anyway, hybrid discs ftw.

Lol, it's right on the box you bought. Did you even buy a box? Hmm, hmm!

The only SoE MMO for Mac is EQ 1. Vendetta works pretty good on my Mac. Minions of Mirth played OK. Dofus worked very well.

That's pretty much it as far as I have seen. I had hoped SWG was going to be on the Mac, but perhaps fortuitously it never came to be.

Someone asked if the Mac version of EQ got any more expansions since it was released. The answer is: No. The last expansion the Mac got was Planes of Power and it was part of the initial release. For awhile, the top guild in the game had major flagging and keying issues, but most of those were fixed by the sole programmer before his departure.

Dofus isn't even a real game. I mean, it is. But everything i so weee tiny on my screen. It's Shockwave/flash, so it'll work on anything with a modern web browser.

Jeez, I posted a list of Mac MMOGs in another thread, and yet people keep bleating the same tosh in every other place, like its interesting to pick the few Mac MMORPGs out repeatedly one or two games per comment. Search is your friend. This thread is about EQ2, which isn't on MacOS or XBox 360 or PSP.

It's anathema to think of Mac users in EQ doing such tasks as:

/location

/follow

/assist

and so on... tongue

Is that a command line slight? For the last six years, the mac has been more command-line friendly than Windows, ya know.

Been able to right click for as long as I've used macs. Just don't use their crappy first party mice. Apple bashing is so lame.

I've used OS X's command line.  Lies.  All lies.  :(
