I started playing VG in beta when it was released to Fileplanet members. I played all the way up to 3 months after release. I have a 42 necro, and some lvl 20+ twinks for crafting. I downloaded the game the other day when i saw they were giving away a free month to inactive accounts. After reading all the hoopla about things being changed for the better after update #3, i wanted to see what it was all about. Now before I go one with this reply I want to state my comp specs and how the game ran before I quit.
I have a amd x2 2.2ghz. I run on an ati x1600 pro 256 card. I have 1 gig of system dual channel system ram made by G-Link, and a 17 inch lcd. When i started playing this game in beta, on balanced the game ran pretty dam good compared to all the nay sayers saying it ran like garbage. I was getting almost a steady 35-40 fps. Now after update #3, im running Highest performance and barley getting 25 fps. When i run into weather like snow, its really bad. Around 15 or so fps.
Lastly, as stated I play a 42 necro. I played him for maybe 15 mins if that only to find my necro worse off then before I quit the game. I attacked a mob, killed it. Decided to recall and check out a city and the lag. When i recalled I decided Id kill the first mob i see before entering the city. And instead of my pet attacking that target, he ran all the way back to were i originally was only to attack a dead target apparently. I thought it was a fluke and sent my pet to come back to me and tried attacking another target. Did it yet again.
Now im not here to say VG is a bad game. Because i sticked with it for quite sometime and still tried to enjoy it. But after all the bugs, crys, whines, DC's and whatnot. To be offered a free month and come back to a huge bug with my favorite class and main class at that after all this time, trully disappointed me. Its not like im that person who cant wait for a small patch, but after everything VG has gone through, I wasnt going to wait for one again. Im sorry to say but my time in the newly patched VG was quite dis-satisfying. None the less, I uninstalled and im still playing EQ2.
People who are going around hyping this game to get people on thier servers needs to stop. This is one of those games that if you want to play, you will have to take a risk at. Because a 20 gig file on your computer is a huge risk, especially when you go to defrag. Goodluck and hopefully if you do try, it succeds better than mine. And to the OP, you need to understand what peoples opinons are. Just like you who is inviting flamers here, its there right to come here and flame you. Just play the game, and if you like it tell your friends. You only make yourself look like a fool when you try to hype a game that had prolly the most failed start ever.
