Community Spotlights: Betas

New Community Manager Laura Genender takes over the Community Spotlight, and highlights the kinds of responses that beta tests can provoke on the forums.

The forums are overflowing with talk of Vanguard. There are the avid followers, who have nothing but good to say of the game; there are the posters who predict its immediate failure and demise. "The trolls have a point," one thread argues, while another reminds posters: "It's in beta testing...DUH!"

Of course, these are just the extremes. There were more conservative users, those who favored the game for the uniqueness of the classes or the scope of the world but understood it still had it's faults, and those who fault the developers for releasing too early but admit that the game has potential. In a thread titled No Immersion forum posters got a bit off topic and began to discuss the state of the game's release date - Poster dukelouie pointed out that some of the immersion issues were due to missing animations, and that the product was far from complete.
