EverQuest Timeline

From Project 1999 Wiki
(Redirected from Players:EQLive Timeline)
Jump to: navigation, search
SOE's inaccurate Progression Server timeline. Many of the dates are not correct to the 1999-2002 timeline.

A few condensed versions of the patch notes / timeline followed by EverQuest Live (EQLive). As stated by the Project 1999 developers, they will adhere to a classic timeline as much as possible. For the Project 1999 history of patches, see Project 1999 News & Announcements.

See Unclassic Bits for a list of things on Project 1999 which do not match the classic timeline.
