There have been some… issues… on the Fippy Darkpaw progression server.
Apparently somebody found a little free time to work on the issue over at Sony, as this message popped up tonight in the Progression Server forum:
Greetings progression players!
I just wanted to keep the community in the loop on our on-going efforts to increase your enjoyment while playing EverQuest. Without further adieu here are two updats for you.
We have made recent advances in our fight against the evil MQ users. Our first test run of some new information we have has resulted in the permanent banning of 17 accounts and extremely long suspensions for 31 accounts. We know this is just the frosting on the cake, but sometimes that frosting is delicious. This was just our first run, and only on two servers, we promise to keep `hacking` away at these people. For any of the non progression players who may be reading this, don’t worry. Hackers on your servers will start vanishing too, this is not something just for the progression servers. J
As our second update we wanted to let the community know that we have contacted all the leaders of raid guilds on Fippy. We are pushing to work on a more permanent fix to the current difficulties that we are seeing between raid guilds. So, if you are a leader of a raid guild, check your email! Also, if you are a guild leader of a raid guild on Fippy (who is raiding current content) who did not receive an email about this please PM HeadGM Kaeldread.
I guess that was the exciting news that Kaeldread was referring to earlier in the week.
