<p>Since AoD, (Which I bought, btw, when I was silver, and upgraded to gold just recently) I have had NOTHING but problems with the game.My computer is most definately not out dated, and has always ran the game perfectly fine on high graphics before, even during the RW where dozens of people are firing off their best spells and abilities, even through my GH which has waaaay too many particle effect items and reflections in it...  Now though, the game is laggy, almost in every zone. I constantly get critical memory error crashes when zoning. Lately, the launcher keeps taking FOREVER (im talking, 10+ minutes) to preload assets, something I never noticed it having to do before. Top it all off with, im a gold account now, aftering upgrading with AoD, and I still cant gift, because you have to have a credit card on file. WTFudge?! How stupid is that sony? Im not giving you my credit card info, you have been hacked once, very publicly already, and add to that when you TRIPLE charged it with eq1 about 7 years ago, and double billed me on SWG less than 2 years ago.  Im a fan of soe games, I bought EQ1 the day it came out, I bought SWG the day it came out... Ive stuck with you guys through the expansions that ruined the game (whats that, my druid cant make money by porting anymore because of these pok books? ok, np. Whats that, too many zones and not enough players to populate them, so your coming out with ANOTHER expansion to add even more? Sweet!) And dont even get me started on swg and how i busted my butt to get my jedi slot unlocked, then came the combat upgrade and nge. Know how many holocrons i had to use to get that slot open? And to top it off, adios swg.</p><p>  The point im trying to make is, WTFudge now? Im really starting to lose it. EQ1 is ruined, swg is gone, EQ2 is all ive got left from you guys. Dont take it away from me. Fix the lag issues, solve the memory problem, and take another look at the patcher to see what the heck is wrong with it. Also, can we figure out a way to ANY gold member can gift? because i bought a 6 month gold, non recurring, and I want to be able to gift. Its a nice feature, i know my guild (and alot of others) use gifting as a way to reward members for certain things.</p><p>Get on top of it SOE!</p>

<p>Go into your eq2 folder and find everquest2.exe and create a shortcut for it.  That will bypass the launcher.  When you get an error that your client is out of date simply start the launcher, let it patch and then close it down.  That will get rid of your launcher issues.</p>

<p>I've had an eq1 sub for ages, I upgraded to an all access nov last year, but, I still can't gift. All I get is the month thing when i mouse over the gift button.</p><p>And whilst I'm having a go, who's idea was it to only put inquisitor Mercs in Freeport? So good aligned races can't go in and hire.</p>

I had to take my troub to Qeynos for his mythical it was a joke, it used to be a challenge to get an update in there and it should still be. This is just another part of the lore from the game they are using for toilet paper and stomping all over it, just like those horrid looking flying wing mounts that have no business in Norrath whatsoever.</p>

<p>Trinity and other fanatics will soon jump on you, yeah we all should buy a 2012 computer NOW to be able to play. Many people do report performance issues even in old zones.</p><p>It should be the dev team priority, the second being the interface, and the third a serious and rationnal pass on class issues.</p>

<p>I came to the forum to make a similar post myself, but someone already has one here at the top of the list. Why in the frig is the game crashing left and right since expac, I just crashed out for the second time in 5 mins, 3 fatal errors and a critical error. IDK WT H this xpac did, it dont even got any content short of a refurbished freeport. I'm gonna keep this note short and simple with my closing words: </p><p>SOE FIX YOUR SH..  NOW!!!!</p><p>Edit: The trolls can keep their mouths shut about blaming people's computers for the crashing, it's only eq2 it's only since xpac and many people have the same issues, it's SOE that needs to fix something/everything.</p>

<p>Since AoD's release there is definitely a massive memory leak in game.  I assume you're running into that.</p><p>Check the support forums.  There's a several pages long post about it, reminiscent of the RoK memory leak that wasn't there (SOE statement) but then was there and fixed.</p>

<p>Can I have all your stuff when you leave? Plz?</p><p>Seriously, I would do some technical troubleshooting on your computer.  Are you trying to run the game in high quality or anything above balanced?</p><p>It definitely sounds like there is something running in the background that's using your comp's resources while running EQ.  Run an anti-malware/spyware.  Make sure you have 14 gig free, run anti-virus, and maybe check some other things.</p><p>As for the preload assets, there is a way around that.  My husband and I just returned to EQ2 after a 2-3 year break.  We had 2 comps to update EQ2 for.  With some searching on the forums, I found that if you download the station launcher, you can download the game completely (including new expansions) in advance so you don't have to do the preload assets thing.  It worked like a charm.</p><p>As for your rig, I'm playing EQ2 on a 7 year old dell XPS.  Ironically, the SAME computer I played EQ1 and started EQ2 with the day the game was released.  It still works just as well today as it did 7 years ago.  Of course, having a 75 GB HD and a copy of Wow with EQ2 loaded really meant something had to go (hint, it wasn't EQ2).</p><p>Perhaps maybe it's time to try another company...Wow keept me entertained for about 3 years (not as long as EQ and look where I am now), but sometimes a break from SOE games is needed.  Come back in a few months and you may have a new perspective on the game.  </p><p>For me, coming back after a 2-3 year break made me realize that EQ2 is still the best MMO out there for the immersion, diversity of what to do in game, polite community (don't even get me started on the WoW community), and a multitude of other things.</p><p>Oh, PS, my main is a Troubour who had to sneak into FP for her epic and who completed the Stein of Moggok, and It Can be Rebuilt quests when they were blue/white to her, which was oh, in 2004-2005 just after the game came out...so where there's a will, there's a way...into Freeport that is.</p>
