Players Online: 301
The scope of this project is to emulate Planes of Power Era EverQuest (circa 2002). We have motivated staff and the intention to release content in a timely manner to avoid congestion of raid content and stagnation of the server at all costs. This also means that we rely heavily on our community, which keeps providing us with excellent bug reports to improve on both server code and the database. This project is a community effort, and we would like to take a moment to thank everyone for all the hard work they put into this project!
Project 2002 was launched on 20th of March 2015, the Ruins of Kunark expansion followed on 19th of June 2015, Scars of Velious was released on 19th of December 2015 and The Shadows of Luclin was released on 14th of April 2017. Out of era currently enabled zones are Planes of Knowledge and the Bazaar.
Our server is a custom version that utilizes portions of the EQEmuMac and EQEmu open source projects as well as custom code. Without the EQEmuMac and EQEmu projects and their years of combined work this project would not be possible. Our gratitude goes out to everyone involved in those communities!
Project 2002 is about playing in fairness, having fun, enjoying the quest for pixels and building a community. We promote a healthy competitive raid environment with a hands off GM approach. Much like the original Live Servers, we operate under a Free For All rule set and will only be enforcing EQLive's "Play Nice Policy". Guides are available to help people with petitions, but when it comes to raid and group content, it will be up to players to mediate and create their own resolutions to disputes.
We operate under a 3 box limit, we want this to be an equal opportunity server for all players. While we realize we can't technically force people to be social and group with each other, there are experience mechanics in place that greatly encourage groups with more than 3 characters (not unlike the original Al'Kabor EverQuest Server).
If you have any further questions that are not covered in our FAQ, feel free to open a thread on our General forums. We hope to see you in "our world" soon!
