Having played on the recent Eqlive progression servers which have been very popular I am super excited for these.
Especially for the PvP server - I played Nagafen at launch and consider it my best times gaming ever. Absolutely geeking out over the chance for eq2 pvp with community driven ruleset.
I think these will be a shot in the arm for the eq2 community. While it won't help current servers it will bring back a lot of former players and perhaps some new ones.
