Yeah, apparently if you had both EQII Live and EQIIx on your system (which I did), if you opted to go in and update through the Live patcher, things went better. I chose the happy path completely by mistake. Of course, that presumed that you knew that there was a merger going on in the first place.

It is another example of SOE trying to chew gum and walk at the same time. They *almost* have it down, but then something gets totally screwed up for a chunk of their customer base.

Ugh - I only play for the crafting and housing and while it will be great for many to have one community again, doesn't matter so much to me so I'd rather it not have to be a pain in my ass implementation.

The dungeon maker things looks cool. I know there are many talented players out there that will make some amazing things.


I had both Live and EQ2X installed on mine and all I did was click on the old EQ2X launcher and followed the prompts. Everything worked first time. The new patcher is a huge improvement on the old one, too.

For SoE, given the size and complexity of the undertaking, it's all gone pretty smoothly although that's no consolation if you're one of the relatively few people who've had problems. Hold tight and let customer service sort it out because it's definitely worth it. You'll get all your characters back and the new F2P model is excellent, as is the free content of the Freeport GU. And I recommend AoD unreservedly.


Resolved. All chars and houses there now. Just annoying when I have very little time to play having it sucked up with that confusion. The friend I'm playing games with at the moment also had no idea of the merges. Not very good at giving players who don't do forums and whatnot any sort of heads-up.
