Vanguard: Fighting to stay alive

As a fellow Vanguard player, I have been shown the capabilities of what a MMO can achieve and bring to the market. I know that people say that Vanguard had a bad launch, and it was so bug ridden you couldn't even  play for around 30 seconds. Now that brings to my attention of what Vanguard is now: It is one of the best MMO games out there, but it has a big fatal wound that will soon show the demise of it.

 

Good words to the Vanguard vets for keeping this game alive, I know it might not seem as enough to fix some of the problems it still has, but you people have given some people the chance to play one hell of a great game out there. Which then brings me to another thing, SOE is planing to introduce a free to play system and somehow implant it into this game, thats not a bad idea as this brings in newcomers, but i just really hope it works so Vanguard can fight to see another day.

Vanguard needs more than just a new payment model. It needs the collective minds of SOE to get their asses in gear and start actively developing the game.

Exactly, they need a big slap and get told a lesson.

Did they ever restore the graphics to their original quality?  I figure today's systems could handle them now.

Yes today's systems are capable of handling them now.

I bought this game on Release and was outraged that they would release this Bug ridden EQ2 Clone. Didn't even finish my free month. Came back to it a year later when all I heard from the fans of how polished the game had become, once again, Lied to. Still bug ridden and cancelled again. I will not waist my money again on this game. IF it goes free to play, I MIGHT give it another go.

It's a solid game.  And I have managed to make some friends.  But it is  the same gear-and-level-centric grind-fest  that all the others are.

it would be a good game if there was any sort of character advancement available at all.  No talent tree, no AA's no customization at all.  Every single char of that class is exactly the same, sans gear

Played it, got big had fun, but as Hluill writes, it's nothing new.  Maybe I've just been playing too long but  would still like that magic of your first one/UO/EQ. 

Frist great because it's all new.

UO brought a whole new meaning to mmo's and the pvp was to die for(g).

EQ monster graphics (compared to what we were used to), well thought out challenges and a system that rewarded success while punishing failure.  Immersion  was there and I'm not sure why but I was the character...played it in frist person and I never do that...great game.

Now I really want someone to show me some more magic, if I knew what it was it wouldn't be new.......something really inovative.  I see wearing a headset and having 360 degree immersion as a possible, but don't really care as long as new and exciting.  

vanguard was ok, but not one I put up as anything special.
