They gave away free flying mounts tonight....

They were stress testing the Beta 1 server tonight and gave away free temporary flying mounts to anyone that wanted one. And I got to say they were awesome. I was even attacked in flight by some wyvern NPC's.  You can definetly fight off the back of these babies. The world of Telon is magnificent.

Also, a patch is incoming tonight. 140 MB client side. They are patching in a lot of art and graphics. So you haters might want to take a look and see if they add in any animations you've been complaining about.

After the patch tonight free griffons will still be available in the newb towns for those that want to fly for free. Its very epic and I highly recommend you give it a try.

Servers came down at 8:15 PST and there is no ETA on when they come back up. Usually its a couple of hours though.

    Yes, despite having 5000+ characters on, I only lost connection twice at the beginning. Other than that, it ran smooth for me. Loved flying around on the griffons as well. It all really does look amazing.

    I crashed probably 10 times in the wood elf starter area due to so many players on.  Man it was worth it tho, after getting the mount I don't see how I'll be able to play without one.

    This is coming from someone skeptical of the mounts in the first place, I had a really good time tonight.

    The only crashing i did was when i was around 300 meters in the air and it was to the ground haha.

    But man it was worth the xp debt...really fun and i got a bit of an idea just how big this game map is.

    Jaw dropping is the only way to describe it. I saw another player in the distance with this mammoth mountain behind him on his flying mount and I thought how sweet an air battle would have been with that guy.

    Vanguard is breath-taking!

    What do the haters have to say NOW??


    I miss the good ol' days when nerds were actually intelligent.

    The haters got nothing.....

    They bring that weak argument "oh well WOW has them too" not stopping to consider that the flying mounts in WOW are an afterthought, just another carrot on a stick to keep you paying and playing. In VG mounts are an integral part of the game right from the start.

    This game is shaping up to be the next big MMO by which all other games will be measured. You can quote that 8 million subscribers garbage all day but just like Mcdonalds they might have served 8 million big macs but that doesnt make their food any better. Its still fast cheap and easy  Just like WOW. I would rather have a menu with some quality choices so I will stick with VG thanks.

    Critical thinking is a desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set in order; and hatred for every kind of imposture.
