The Everquest 2 team opened up a poll a few weeks back to their users to get a feel for what the community wanted to see happen in regards to the Adventure Packs release date and the results are in. Everquest asked its users if they would like to see the new “Spitlaw” and “Bloodline Chronicles” Adventure Packs content released prior to the kickoff of the the Desert of Flames expansion release. As was to be expected, gamers responded with a resounding YES to this question with 80% of the votes in favor of the early release date. Both packs will become available this Thursday, August 20th during an update and will go live at approximately 9am PDT.
The Everquest 2 team recently announced a new poll today for the Desert of Flame Expansion that will take place over a one week period starting August 21st at 12pm PDT through August 28th PDT. According to the official page:
“A “Yes” vote will result in the expansion opening on Thursday, Sept. 3 during a hotfix and be live about 9am PDT.” Whereas “If the vote is “No” then the expansion will not release and the same vote will resurface again on September 21.”
Everquest 2 also included some specific details regarding the voting process:
- All levels (tradeskill and adventure) can vote Yes or No to the Desert of Flames expansion releasing on September 3, just over a week following the completion of the vote.
- We only recognize one, and only the first, vote per account (though all of a player’s characters on TLE will receive an in-game vote in their mail).
- It will take a majority vote of 2/3 (or more) of the server votes to unlock the next expansion.
