Brad McQuaid at GU -

Woody Hearn, perhaps better known for his fabled GUComics than his interviews has conducted a good length interview with Brad McQuaid, the pointman for the upcoming MMORPG Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

I guess that's the real catch-22. The fundamental advancement mechanism in these games, unlike say an FPS, RTS, etc., is time invested. You advance primarily by the time you invest into playing the game (although there are certainly other factors -- who your friends are, how well you socialize and maintain relationships, your general knowledge of the world, gameplay strategy, etc.). And as long other games in the genre really do seem to have created a product that promotes the selection of "group mates" based entirely on the items they carry.
