i had quit EQ b/c of SOE's customer service during the massive roll-back of 2005. i admit i still miss the EQ community & playing my MNK, it's still a pretty good game just not for beginning players. i had been playing Guild Wars off & on to "Quench" my appetite till Vanguard released. With the Sigil & SOE probable merger i'll definitely reconsider.
EQ started out a similar way as this Vanguard seems to be between Verant, now Sigil, & the behemoth SOE. Even though i'm sure Vanguard will be a good game my hopes now cannot help but be deminished & i'll be reluctant to even try Vanguard if it's just another online game for Brad & company to eventually ... again ... sell off to SOE.
Not the best decision/beginning for Vanguard indeed!
