Err, of course I was joking! Besides, it says 'Unknown command'...  *cough*

I should also mention I stole the idea off one of the other 308 threads on this topic. The fact that /pizza has caused more posts than any in-game change (besides maybe the horse nerf :smileywink: ) is, to me, bizarre. But then again, I am English: perhaps I'd get worked up if they implemented a /kebab command. :smileyvery-happy:

Actually the most in game change that has more posts than you would believe is the various screw ups they did to tradeskillers in the last couple of patches. If you want to see a true "hailstorm" of posts go to the Tradeskillers arena on virtually every type of tradeskiller class save
provisioner. Many of the more interesting ones were either moved to the glasshouse or deleted completely tho I believe.

  First off, whoever came up with this gimmick was a marketing genius IMHO, both companies making alot of money off it. How many of you actually sit down to play and decide to order out? If  it was /McDonalds and they delivered bet they could do same thing. Do you ever watch TV? how about the Superbowl? did you get all bent out of shape on the commercials they showed then? If you don't want to see commercials on TV you switch channels (usually to another commercial) in EQ2 you just don't use the /pizza command, its that simple. 
 
  When a dancing pizza is seen dancing across the Commonland/Antonica then we should really start to worry, but then again you all would be attacking him to  find the UBER pizza loots.

Yeah, Im sorry, if you cant think of a good WoW putdown, it has nothing to do with a /pizza command. Hell, just say something like, "Well sorry, my servers are up most of the time, so I dont have the luxury of using the phone that you WoW players do." Either that or just say, "Oh, you're one to talk...your whole [expletive ninja'd by Faarbot] game is an add for Crayola crayons..."


God .. its about time someone came out and said it .. I swear my 2 year old niece had her hand in some of the coloring for that game.

Heh.. Guilty. I'd be after that Pepperoni Shillaly of Throttling! Cmoooon lottery!My only concern is whether the delivery guy is going to know that I ordered from EQ2.... kind of embarrassing actually.--------Also... points to LordTwisted for the Leisuresuit Larry reference. Cheers.

I'm telling you now. If they add a rare spawn pizza to any zone in the game it [expletive ninja'd by Faarbot] well better drop coupons as loot. and I mean good coupons not this save $2 crud I mean you earned a free pizza coupon. Does pizza hut even have a mascot? Maybe if they had a mascot they could make him run around norrath with a free coupon book he drops? Maybe uber loot like "Throwing pizzas of might" or a "Pizza cutter" maybe a tadeskill pizza oven for your home?

I have only one thing to say to all of you people complaining about the /pizza command (among other things).  If you feel something needs to be fixed or changed...
 
OMG...do I dare?
 
Hmmm...should I?
 
Ok...here goes...
 
Use the [Removed for Content] /FEEDBACK command!
 
Otherwise shut up and get a life.

As a point of contention, the SOE All Access pass is, at its core, a way for SOE Customers to be able to enjoy multiple SOE games without paying multiple subscription fees. The addition of character slots and free adventure packs are bonuses on top of this base. So excuse them for not wanting to gouge the players who enjoy more than one of their products.


Seriously, all five of them.  It was a good idea when it was first introduced and I admit I had signed up for it orignally because I was playing Planetside and EQ1, but these other games are garbage now.  Whether you were already playing them or not it doesn't debate the fact that witholding these character slots and then allowing them exclusively as part of the all access pass was a deliberate desperate attempt at selling failing games to people who didn't want them to begin with.  Anyway, its just one move in a list of many that includes /pizza.. that has me and others feeling sad about the future of this game.

No kidding.  I doubt the ad money from Pizza Hut was anything substantial, but all the free publicity they are getting over this "feature" probably makes this an overwhelming success for SOE.  Any Pub is good Pub right?

Or maybe you should take your own advice and stop trolling the forums.  If you don't want to participate in a discussion about /pizza (after all that's what the forums are for) then don't click on a thread with /pizza in the topic.

/shrug I can live with that. Don't see why people are 'leaving the game' because of this. Grow up.
Still want a /[Removed for Content] comand though. :smileywink:





Grow up? LOL I've already done that. Maybe the developers and the community could "grow up" and not put such useless commands in the game. Maybe they could be fixing some of the many bugs that plague the game instead of /pizza, /[Removed for Content], /poop commands. Maybe they should actually encourage their player base that real life does count and you should walk away from the computer every now and again.

Instead of telling us to grow up, how about getting some perspective. /pizza makes EQ2 look like a joke. But then again, it is now, and Jay Leno proved that.


 



Thank you for spending your time on an online game's out-of-game message board to tell the rest of us that we need to get away from the computer more. 
 
...
 
By the way, getting a joke made about you during Jay Leno's opening monologue isn't usually viewed as a negative thing.  It usually means you've arrived.  It's like saying that a Friar's Club Roast about you is a bad thing because everyone's insulting you publically.

Americans get all worked up on the simple minded things as /pizza  from EQ2 and DOH !!! from Homer Simpson.  Simple things amuse simple minds... Including Jay Leno.
 
It's just a game, it's just a command.
 
BTW need /beer with my /pizza,   DOH !!!?

Great idea!  Instead of trying to expand the market and make the game more inclusive, we should continue to attempt to appeal only to an incredibly specific elitist subculture of the population so that we can retain our "street cred"?

Me too! But I can't order a pizza until the servers come back up. I tried the "/pizza" at a DOS prompt and it fussed at me about something like command not found or some such nonsense.
 
I sure am getting hungry though. Can't wait until the game comes back up so that I can order some food!! On top of that, I can't even go to the bathroom yet. I can't set /afk either until I can log on!
 
Geesh!
 
PS. I LOVE the /pizza command. It never shows up in game. You never know when someone invokes it. if you don't like it then don't use it or ask if I am.

This is part of whats really turned me off from EQ2. Their commercializing the game in a way thats, really inappropriate. I remember when Anarchy Online had Alienware billboards in its cities. People got really upset about them, dunno if they ever patched them out. But /pizza is just bad. Yup the advertising is good for SOE, but basically shows how "bubblegum" the game is how slapstick the community is since... well, no one has a problem with it it seems.


 

Imagine that a FOR PROFIT company trying to make money off of advertising.  I have to finally say it to all the complainers........If you don't like the game, then don't play it.  I play this, SWG, and WoW.  I enjoy each, because they each are unique in gameplay and services.

These complaints are sometimes too melodramatic.  Not everything is perfect, and don't let a game get you all worked up. 

There are other events that will do that to you ie. watching your bud get blown up by an IED in Iraq.

So take a deep breath......

And order some pizza...............

 

Shadow (Live from Iraq)

ps We have Pizza Hut over here on post, but they don't deliver unfortunately SMILEY

 

 

 




Amen, brother.

/beer To your safe and prompt return to the home and family that loves you, misses you, and gives thanks for your sacrifice.

On mattress's stuffed with money.....

 

Oh my god a simple JPG on a website showing lucan holding a pizza does not kill the immersion of the game. If it took something as stupid as that I would have lost interest in this game the first day I log to the forums.

 

You want to talk about funny advertising, check out wow.stratics.com  unless it;s been fixed it is the WoW strat page..sponsered by EQ2....

I don't suppose we could get a break on our monthly bills now, do you? I don't care if they want to make money, but how about spreading some of the wealth?
 
Oooh!! How about an ad server! All the weapons, houses, landscapes have advertisements on them, and the whole thing would be free for those who bought the game! And then both sides of the argument could put their money where their mouth is: If you really hate it, could you still pass up free? Or if you love it/don't care, could you really stand full-blown commercialization?
