Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the priviledge to do so as well.

Vanguard had a Lot of potential , a lot.  It just was too far ahead of its time to be done right, and the big one, it was pushed into launch way to fast before it could be completed.  But in all fairness , that game has some really cool ideas for an MMO.

 

Potential, yes but it was still Brad's words that hyped this train wreck that I was so looking forward to. He knew the problems plaguing the launch but still tried to sell it.  Too many have done this with games and they should be skeptically heard. My thoughts only though.

Very good to see comments from Brad McQuaid.  I always respected his vision and drive to make a solid MMO.... one that I would want to play.

I followed Vanguard a long time before it launched, got into late Alpha/early Beta and got to see that game at a very early stage.  We all knew the game was rough and shipped way to soon... regardless of the circumstances.   

I believed/agreed with most everything Brad ever said about Vanguard.  I believed it was going to be more a successor to EQ than EQ2 - and I truly think Brad wanted it to be.

No point in beating a dead horse on that account - but for Brad to say those nice things about EQN speaks volumes to me.

 

Please Please O' MMO gods of fate and destiny - let EQN be the ONE.  PLEASE!!!!

And the hype meter just jumped another 100 places. I dearly hope this game lives up to it.

Brad's on the SOE payroll, so why anyone would think his opinion of EQN is anything other than marketing is beyond me.

Why is he just now seeing an intro to the game?  Isn't he working on it, or did I miss something?

Well, he wouldn't go like "This isn't the type of game Vanguard and EverQuest players will like". I think it's likely to be a F2P PvE sandpark game. But time will tell.

He is most likely talking about watching them do a practice run of the keynote. Devs in Vegas already. Not literally the games intro movie. And no, he isn't working on EQN but does work for SOE.

He's working on EQ1, not EQN.

One Word:  Vanguard Next.

Ok, that's two words, but we're talking hype!

Still, I am happy so far about the hype.

Vanguard had some cool experimental stuff I will admit, but vanguard being mentioned makes me kinda uneasy.. The amount of bugs in vanguard was the most amazing thing about it, When I gave it a second chance a year after release it literaly took me 5 minutes to get stuck inside the model of a gigantic wall.

Also swg players wont love it ? :( no player cities? noo!!! :(

I do not even have words to express how creepy and weird it is to see so many people e-orgasming over a game with barely any kind of info released yet.

And it´s only going to get worse, because once they release the "information" and probably a trailer to go with it, everyone and his mom is going to believe every cliche´d epic sentence and statement about how awesome everything is,  and talk of it as fact til the beta.

Then, and upon realizing that, while a decent game, perhaps it´s not all what was promised, they are going to use the typical "It´s a beta, its not the full game and a lot is going to be introduced in future phases" card.

And then.....

 

Well, i do not need to explain it, it has been happening for how many years now?

Do you think that none of the people posting are not having fun with it?

Or people will be pleased with the info given, beta, and final release... How long has the sky been falling?

While I get where you are coming from and do not doubt what you say will happen for some, others will be happy with whatever is released, even if it is terrible to others.

I look at the Wildstar forums and the large amount of info released and can't get how people think it will be exciting, but then read what they write and some really enjoy the play style and what it has to offer and only want a new game, regardless if it is a clone or whatever.

Hype is fun. Look at movies, phones, cars, sports drafts, etc. People like guessing and using their imagination. Sometimes they are right, often times they are way off. Who cares as long as it is all in good fun and people are enjoying themselves?

phasing sucks, instancing sucks, player base splitting sucks, way of least resistance mode sucks, easymode..sucks.

It's all themepark land. EQ Next is a sandbox, in case you forgot.

It's either going to be EvE in fantasyland or it will royally fail.
