This past week I revisited one of my favorite mmo's Vanguard Saga of Heroes. While most of us cringe when a company says it is making a title free to play. I know I do, the idea of content, character customization, classes getting shredded all for the mighty dollar makes me queesy!
But I was delightfully surprised when I logged into Vanguard. All of my characters were still there! Every one of them! As with many free to play titles I did not have a character lock! OUTSTANDING!
I logged in and was expecting some of my really good items to be locked as well. Looking up my bank and character backpacks. I realized they were untouched. I had the freedom of the entire world of Telon at my hands! I still could go anywhere, do anything, and still use some of the very good items I had when I ended my sub.
So I asked myself, "whats the catch?". I found the answer when I decided to relog in and check out the upgrade for Vanguard. I realize now that only a few small changes had taken place as a premium member. You can check it out here. https://www.vanguardthegame.com/free.vm
I am surprised that the only hits taken for it F2P format is faction , experience bonus, and character slots. Compared to many of the other free to play titles out there. The loss for going free is minimal. You still get every class. Most loot and still have access to the functions Vanguard povides. This includes owning a home :-D.
This is the first free to play game where it really is almost free! If you have not tried Vanguard I recommend it highly!
This is by far the BEST MMORPG title that has the tag of FREE TO PLAY on the market!
