I would still be playing Vanguard if there was some type of character customization, but there isnt, every druid is just like every other druid.  A fully developed AA system like Conan or the EQ's would do wonders in VG, so much I would sub right now if that was added

Progression is absolutely non-existant at 55

I agree, i have been playing the game since beta and still play now and again, it's more of a hybrid than total themepark imo.

Best dungeons post EQ and right up their with EQ2, feature deep as well. Chunking is near on instant with an SSD and many of the bugs are now fixed even though the game will never be bug free.

7.  Diplomacy system

8.  Harvesting system that is interactive and incorporates group harvesting

9.  Challenging content, corpse runs, etc.

10.  Tons of class and race options.

11.  Giant world that creates a sense of wonder and immersion.

12.  Over 120 non instanced dungeons

This sounds exactly like ArcheAge.

Ontopic, with a graphic/engine overhaul i would gladly play Vanguard.

Sorry but AA was one of the worst things EQ ever introduced.  I'm all for a hardcore game, but AA created an endless treadmill.  Furthermore, as time progressed AAs made it so that the barrier to entry for new players was prohibitively high, especially at the speed that you could acquire them.

Lol it's EQ, the king of the linear progression games.  At least let fans of that style have one game.  Honestly, new people can catch if they put some time and effort into it.  Not everything in this genre has to be 100% streamlined and easy.

 

On topic:  I would definitely play VG if updated.  Hopefully that inventory loot PvP server would be up.  I think it was inventory loot right?

This is always a problem with these theoretical discussions.  You never know if a lackluster feature was desigend so by intent or was simply the victim of a lack of resources.  There are a number of features in Vanguard that sounded interesting on paper but did not come out right in the game that was released.  Maybe a 'finished' Vanguard would have improved on teh feature and made it something players loved.  Maybe the devs intentionally made teh feature that way to fit their 'vision'.

I'd be playing it right now in it's current form if it had a decent population. Huge world, group-based mmos don't work very well with a low population.

Currently Playing: Nothing worth playing.

Previously Played: UO, DAOC, Shadowbane, AC2, SWG, Horizons, COX, WOW, EQ2, LOTRO, AOC, WAR, Vanguard, Rift, SWTOR

Absolutely.

 

I would probably still play it now if there was an active dev plans, or plans to add in PvP.

It is, without a doubt, the best PvE MMO on the market.

It has some of the best dungeons and hardest group content.

 

The only bad thing is that over the years the devs have WoWified it. They lessened the death penalty, they cut out a bunch of deep features that they thought were too confusing (they weren't), they added bind on pickup to items. They cut some depth from combat.

 

The game, as it stands, is the best exploration MMO out there.

If it came out today, with better graphics, no bugs, and some of the old features making a comeback, it would knock the genre flat on its face.

Maybe...

I actually played, and really enjoyed VG back in 2007-2008 despite all of its imperfections. Crazy, I know. How could I?

In the year of 2014 I'm not looking for themeparks anymore even if it is a perfected Vanguard. Stuff like EQN+L and beyond is where my interest lies.

Let's build the ultimate MMO 1 feature at a time

i always feel a little sad when vanguard is brought up.

there was a dedicated group of beta testers in that game and the feedback we gave was entered, and alas, disregarded for the most part in the final publish, but that was attributed to the "get it out the door we are loosing money" mentality of the devs at that time.

if it was re-published with a graphics update, i would certainly try it again, i mean its have so many positive updates, but i think that this game, and the unfinished quality of the release really started the deathnell of large open world gaming and set a standard in lazyness for the genre as far as releases go.

 

but hey, thats me

 

Gonada Dahung,over 20 years of mmorpg's and counting....Please Lord, let someone make a game that had all the awesomeness of UO, EQ and EVE...

The only things I liked about Vanguard was the diplomacy system and the huge seamless gameworld.  Everything else was just kind of "meh".

It's a good game i would love to play more of.

But the very poor animations and slow as hell combat turns me off it every time i want to get into it.

Interesting thought. Maybe it would do ok if all the kinks were worked out and the graphics improved some. What I mean about the graphics is that sometimes textures seemed stretched too far. Not sure a term for it but it would degrade the quality enough to make it look like minecraft, all pixelated. Some of the areas just seemed unfinished too. Ground, mob mob mob, village, mob mob mob for miles. It meant a lot of grinding but that was the style then.

I raved about diplomacy. Was into the dance,dance, fish mini-game. The free aspect just ran me off once they settled on changing it from sub. I don't play those sorts of games.

while I don't play it on a regular basis, when it went f2p I got the client again just to have it lol I played it a lot back in the day but after wow came out I moved to it. 

 

I still log on and play my old toons when the Rift servers are down for updates. still LOVE  the game :)

but after playing so many other MMOs, the character animations could use some updating lol

Depends. Are they going to move all the people they have working on it off of the project and just collect money while it slowly sinks, as they do with all their MMOs? If so, no.

I hated the Itemization and Questing of Vanguard. Fix how itemization worked and remove questing; instead make enough dungeons (starting at early levels) for us to delve into solo or with others (lots of static content; solo, due, group dungeons and area of interests).

I also dislike 3rd Person View but I guess it wouldn't bother me if everything else was good.

^--- this post is a perfect example of why there's no money in making cutting edge graphics for most developers. Doing so means having to do a graphics overhaul every three years or gamers will reject/leave it, no matter how much they like the gameplay.
That is why EVE isn't improving the graphics...?
Is that sarcasm?

EVE overhauled their graphics engine with the Trinity update (2007). After that all these expansion had graphical updates (for ship, UI, astral bodies): Quantum Rise (2008), Tyrannis (2010), Crucible (2011) and Inferno (2012).


 
Yep, I was being sarcastic.

The truth is, graphics is a huge part of game appeal. The problem is, concept of standard MMO makes graphics overhauls somewhat difficult/inefficient/expensive.

It was easier with EVE due space theme, yet I still wonder how much would it cost to update character models and animations of ie. LOTRO.

Seriously folks, would this game released properly in this day and age not get you excited?  I've played so many mmo's where people will talk about things that they wish someone would make in an mmo and I've thought how Vanguard already has that.  Yeah in some aspects it was still a theme park but anyone who really played the game knows it was way more than just that.

Update - this is a list of current features Vanguard already has, there seemed to be some confusion over this:

2.  No instancing at all in the giant game world

3.  Open world housing (also non instanced)

4.  Ship building and sailing

5.  Fishing that is actually interactive and deep like the crafting system

6.  Group focused content

7.  Diplomacy system

8.  Harvesting system that is interactive and incorporates group harvesting

9.  Challenging content, corpse runs, etc.

10.  Tons of class and race options.

11.  Giant world that creates a sense of wonder and immersion.

12.  Over 120 non instanced dungeons

if it was a sandbox, updated graphics, smooth engine....then yes.

I tried it lately and really liked it but medicore population, lack of pvp server and no hope for further full scale developement made me quit. If it was just released i would definitely play it.

100% agree. I love the core of this game, and it keeps bringing me back because I love the world and classes, but after a month or so I just can't take the animations and lacklustre performance anymore.  If there was a game with Vanguard core gameplay, and Blade and Soul style movement and graphics, I would be in heaven.
