    Greetings,

    If any oldtime lurkers from the VZTZ garagebox days remain, some classic PVP is headed your way. Former VZTZ 2.0/3.0 Dev Voidd has returned and has a slew of codemonkeys polishing up VZTZ to return within a few short weeks. Rats have come out of the woodwork from across the everquest pvp community and we are sitting at an active count over 200 players in discord at this time, and have stood up forums in anticipation of a longterm playerbase.

    For those of you who haven't experienced VZTZ, its everquest PVP that launches classic world, then kunark, then wraps up in velious.

    Looking forward to growing the community with some more pals old and new.

    -Knuckle

    Here's a classic PVP video from the early days of VZTZ (2008)

    not really tho, only luclin->pop could do it for me, I've done enough classic/kunark/velious to hold me for a lifetime at this point

    Piek was still posting here on brief occasions up until maybe 4-5 years ago, I think. Haven’t seen him since then. I’m pretty sure he’s married + has a kid or two.

    Good to hear from you, Big Knuckle. I don’t think I have the time anymore for EQ pursuits but I’ll always remember the good times we had on the original VZ/TZ server. I still think it was one of the best ways to experience classic EQ PvP. The pre-Kunark days were a lot of fun.

    Certainly don't blame you for that, I question my sanity as well, but have been seeing lots of old names as I have been out of the scene for some time. Feel free to pop in the discord and just catch up with ol pals.

    P.S. hope you got your M.D.!

    I think the way they run this is almost the only way to do EQ PvP in the modern day with this kinda private server setup. I keep telling myself I'll check it out but then I never do.

    Currently Alpha Testing going on. I am glad we are not rushing to "live" or "beta". lots of work to be done still. some active coders and testers. Spell resist rates are being tested now. We are on the RoF client now as opposed to the ancient titanium client. This plugs a lot of the holes that cheaters used, not invincible but a large step forward(zone cmd delete, anyone?).

    That's fucking Everquest right there. None of that pansy ass dick tugging smile for the camera bullshit. Men puke, men poop in their desk chair, men deliver their new born baby while raiding Plane of Sky. Fucking hard core dick in the ass coin loot pvp fuck it chuck it game time shit. Take it to the showers. Tranquil Staffs get shoved in places you don’t even remember. We win together we celebrate together. Garage Box is back baby.

    Man I must be too deep into drinking the libcuck kool-aid, but item #1 already puts me off in terms of setting the tone. Gee I wonder why there aren't more female gamers lol

    (a lot of the other stuff sounds good though, i'm just never gonna play EQ again until I'm retired probably)

    Haven’t they always been like that? I’m sure they’re even worse now in the post-Trump era
