Most people complained about how bad the costomer service was in EQ and how the new content had to many bugs. How classes were over powered. I heard the Warroirs all went on strike one time to get a class modification.
Blizzard on the other had answers your question in 1-3 days and has weekly fixes for bugs. Also blizzard has made each class very useful and not to over powering. They have a set goal to create new patches for when the game play gets borning or the end stuff has been achieve. These patches come at the perfect time. Also its mix of PvP and PvE creates more time wasted, since you want two sets of item gear not just one. I believe WoW has taking all the mistakes EQ had and perfected them to a pure sience. I read from someone that blizzard has a 12 year plan. Which i find amazing!! I cant image wasting 12 years of my life.
If you can think of any other reason why WoW is worse then EQ i would love to here them?
