From angryguildleader.com :
We are seeing new faces in Vanguard every day. Most of these have left AOC, as our guild did, but they are coming from other places, as well.
Each day I recruit, and I am having to go through hundreds of new faces from the day before. Literally.
This is a great thing for a great game. It's about time.
SOE must be wondering what the hell is going on. Now is the time to see if they will do something with the new influx of money to improve the game and the staff. I know those left from Sigil must be grinning ear to ear.
The time is now Sony. This is the best MMORPG with the best potential. Put the money into this game, or lose your shot.
The continuing failure of AOC isn't the only reason subs are up. There are an army of fans now getting the word out, and Vanguard has really begun to pan out and a batch of new patches lately are really shaping things up nicely. You can read more about this on my previous blogs.
