I played Vanguard for three years and loved it. Eventually my guild and I left and went on hiatus and picked up with Rift when that launched. While Rift provides some enjoyment, it makes me appreciate how truly awesome Vanguard is. Vanguard still is the best MMO around. It's deeper, funner, more addicting, challenging and frankly superior than Rift on almost any level.
Our guild played Vanguard feverishly for 3 years until the content and development ran out. We left very reluctantly. Meanwhile, in Rift, a bit of boredom and grind as already seeped in at max level after just a couple months. We can't help but compare Rift to Vanguard when we play wishing that this, that and the other thing was more like Vanguard.........
- wish Rift had crafting like VG
- wish Rift had dungeons like VG
- wish Rift had diplomcy like VG
-wish Rift had combat like VG
- wish skill mattered in Rift like it did in VG
- wish the Rift world was huge, epic and open like VG
.... and on, and on, and on......
I wish Vanguard has the resources that Trion throws at Rift. It could have been the be all and end all of MMOs.
