“Intrepid Studios is growing according to today’s Ashes of Creation press announcement. Five new members have joined up that bring development experience from EverQuest to H1Z1.”

Daybreak Game Company has emailed a second 2017 EverQuest II survey. We presented the first 2017 survey in an earlier article.

As two months earlier, here’s what showed up in the Gmail box.

EQII email

 

The new survey is as short as the previous one. However the emphasis is different.

EQII Survey 20170605

What was previously question #7, is now question #2. For those who prefer text, the new question #2.

  • 2. How likely is it that you would recommend EverQuest II to a friend of colleague?

 

I would like to say that EverQuest 2 has a chance to pull itself out of the toxic hole that its managed to throw itself down, but right now the game needs to focus on bringing the player base back.

Asking the same question. in two months apart surveys, indicates Something’s Afoot. Or Daybreak’s Marketing department is completely inept.

Let’s sidetrack to marketing EverQuest II. And let’s not go into the “””fantastic marketing“”” taking place on Twitter.

You think marketing, and you think ‘advertising.’ Maybe something like simple timely press releases.

But do a Google search for “everquest 2” under news. By the way, it’s now June.

EverQuest II and Ashes of Creation? Someone at Daybreak blew product SEO.

But, Maybe this is a Google fluke.

 

WoW news

Nope.

 

“Hopefully, if the liquidation firm shuts us down, Amazon Games will pick us up.”
Uwkete-of-Crushbone, May 2017

 

Daybreak Games may be asking the ‘would you recommend to a friend’ question, to determine if EverQuest II is worth keeping around.

But Daybreak Games may be asking the question, because customer impressions are important. Change a bad impression, and you can keep a customer. And gain new customers.

Time will tell.

Surveys regarding EverQuest II are few. The last time any here received an EverQuest II survey, the previous owner got hacked.

Years later, here’s what showed up in the Gmail box.

 

Tell Us What You Think

The survey is short.

EQ2 Survey 1
All properties of Daybreak Game Company have been suffering outages, since 2 January 2017.

Daybreak Games 20170102

Meaning question number five should have been a no-brainer, for management.

EQ2 Survey 2

Is San Diego based Daybreak Game Company really looking to improve customer service? Is this merely a method to placate the dwindling user base?

Or is the owner of Daybreak Game Company, Columbus Nova, looking for an excuse to offload the EverQuest franchise?

Time will tell.
