On June 5, SOE hosted almost 70 players from around the United States in a first-ever Guild Summit. This meeting allowed for a frank exchange of views and ideas between the EverQuest Live team and leaders of some of the game's more prominent guilds. The various guild representatives came well-prepared (notes and notebooks, even CDs) with suggestions for improving the EQ experience.
This event was a first for SOE and the industry. The EQ Live team came away with hundreds of ideas for changes, improvements, updates and plain old cool new stuff to throw out to the half-million strong player base. The next Tuesday night/Wednesday morning patch will contain some of those fixes.
