Wish full thinking,
I wish someone would buy Vanguard, but I'm sure SOE got their wish to shut it down permanently.
It's amazing that this game NEVER had a chance !.......Never !
A ) Bad release ( not going into detail to start an argument )
B ) SOE did the bare minimum with the Starter Isle, and very few fixes.
C ) SOE gave zero marketing.
D ) SOE wanted it to fail end of story.
Vanguard needed two things to happen :
- Fix the game at least 20% more.
- And a one time rally, to get all players to try at the same time. Not just a simple announcement for Free-to-play here on mmoprg.com but a " Real Rally ". This MMO was made with thousands of players on a server at the same time. That was the intended formula more so than any other mmo !
What we got was THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE RETURNING BACK AT DIFFRIENT TIMES. Most players that cycled through Vanguard all say the same things.
" The world is dead "
" Bugs, few but bad ones "
Players even tried to Rally This game at different points on their own. Attempts like that were doomed. This action could only come from developers.....Yet, nothing from SOE !.......I believe all mmo failures are developers fault, not the players. Only they can advertise.
Could you imagine how powerful Vanguard could have been if EVERYONE THAT CYCLED THROUGH THIS GAME AT THE SAME TIME ?.............Most would not leave !
Shame on you SOE......Sell it to someone, then I'll give you at least some respect !!!!!!
