THe one major proplem with Vangaurd players is, the game must have everything in it it, it must take 5 years to craft 1 ingot, it must cater to 12 people.
The sad reality is that , a game is not supposed to be everything, it is a gateway , a door to an adventure where people can contribute and create there own fun with friends they meet in passing bys. Games like LotrO leave something open for th player to enjoy, and great games do that. Bad games either completely take over a players life, or leaves no room for a real community spirit.
If your like qombi, then you most likely need to revisit why you play mmorpg's. If you really want something challenging, get a crossword puzzle .
Hey now don't put words in my mouth! Why should a crossword puzzle be challenging and not an online game? You put words in my mouth. I never mentioned Vanguard and I did say I did enjoy original WoW which was not time consuming. I have a family, job, home etc and played WoW. The original dungeons and raids had some challenge and did not take up all my life.
You need to quit trying to spread propaganda about how much time some of these games take. I raided in the original game on the weekends, our guild did most all end game dungeons. We scheduled to meet up on a day and played 4-5 hrs one day a week. It was a casual guild, all had real life responsibilities. Games can be time convenient and still pose a challenge.
I don't get where you think you can decide that MMORPGs are not meant to provide challenging game play. And don't come telling me I need to revisit why I play games. Half of the stuff you typed you made up on the spot. If you feel WoW was difficult or too time consuming. Remember I played WoW in the past maybe a 2 -3 hrs 3- 4 days a week and maybe 4-5 hours on a Saturday.
Just because you want instant gratification doesn't mean you can make false claims about the time it takes to play or how challenging these games are suppose to be.
