The Successor to the original EQ, however arguable by the Original EQ players. EQ2 launched with many issues, pushing the boundaries of technology yet having nothing to show for it. This was due to the Computer market taking a very weird turn, from more powerful single cores which the game was designed for, to less powerful yet more cores. The game had a fair share of success but never really reached its potential. Due to these issues,EQ2 couldnt compete, and World of Warcraft rose straight up.
