SOE Live is the name for what used to be called the Fan Faire.

Every year SOE had an event where players of their various games gather to discuss issues with the SOE staff and PARTY!

With the acquisition of SOE by Columbus Nova (becoming Daybreak Game Company), it has been announced there will be no SOE Live or similar official event in the future.

For 2015, an unofficial event is being planned. Here is the link to the Facebook page on it: https://www.facebook.com/events/447542312060278/

History[edit]

For the past several years, SOE Live has hosted The EverQuest® Death, Death, Death Challenge which awards cash prizes.
