    Very nice.  Congrats.  Anything happening in game that would be driving the playerbase up?

    Best thing about Vanguard has always been it's depth

    I'm downloading it now.  I've been checking out Age of Wushu lately, but I've always wondered about this one.

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    i don't suppose they took away the gear restrictions that made it almost pointless to play?

     True story I've seen the same statement about this game every 6 months since its been released. When they were shutting down servers people were posting how the population was growing etc.

       If your having fun good for you, but I think the constant need to state the game is growing when over the years its been shown time and time again just to be a temporary slight increase at best before returning to low pop is getting old.

     Post a thread when they actually add a server (instead of closing them) and we'll believe you a bit more

    No need to hate. This is the most people I have seen online since launch. Actually looking good this time. The problem was everyone always waiting for more people just try it for yourself it's free you have nothing to lose. By far the most in depth mmo out and one of the most beautiful.

    1) Its Sony. Still not as bad as EA though.

    2) Paying members have advantages over free players. This is pay to win, not free to play.

    3) Traitors to humanity; Sony, like many other corps, thinks that what you buy from them still belongs to them. Until they allow people to tinker with the products they purchase, they are not worthy of my wallet.

    Boycotting EA. Why? They suck, even moreso since 2008.

    I really like this game so far, just started last week. I've found my drive to keep playing dying out quite a lot. Soloing as shammy has been really boring and doesn't seem to ever be anyone my lvl to play with =(

    So minus lack of lowbies and the frustrating lag, it's a really enjoyable game. I really love how friendly the community has been!

     its not hate what I said is fact. (I'm sure you could search here and find numerous threads claming vanguard pop is up every year since its been out. and all the time they have only closed more servers.) However if you can show me proof that the population is up for a sustained amount of time i'll happy say good for vanguard. You know like if the pop was up enough and for long enough that SOE decided they should add a server.

    I like to think of it as a less restrictive demo to decide weather you think the game worth paying the monthly fee for in my option its acualy a fairly decent idea however could do with a slight change over not being able to use the better end gear. but other than that i think it could be a good system. But anyway if u enjoy the game enough you should pay the monthly fee :P

    I agree, but in that sense, they should market it as an extended free trial, not a free to play game.

    Meanwhile... back in reality... Vanguard has two servers one for America and one for Europe.

     SOE used to be worse than EA, but SOE have really redeemed themselves recently by listening to customers more (for example Planetside 2's changes and change to the Vanguard f2p restrictions) and EA has sunk themselves lower by listening to customer less (WAR and swtor)

    To me, that's not redeeming, its stopping the hemmorage.

    Redeeming would mean that they become good corporate citizens. Doubt it will happen anytime soon.

    Freeloaders should and I mean SHOULD never get the same advantages that paying customers do.  If you actually invest in the game without paying a subscription, you do actually come out the same in the end, but true non-paying players are as they should be, second rate and second class.

    Treating their customer average doesn't make them "bad corporate citizen". Bad is if they use polluting agent in production of their goods/services and use cheap child labor (ie BP and Nike).

    I think you are confusing customer service with corporate ethicity.

    Agreed, however, the game states free to play. Not extended free trial or free to try. Free to play games are supposed to be completely free and when it is pay to win, it ceases to be completely free.

    IE: Teenturd McShitster's SuperRPG made with RPGMaker is Free to Play because he does not charge nor give any advantage to players. Sure, those types of games are usually not MMOs. 

    So:

    If the game gives an advantage to players over others only if they pay, its Pay to Win.

    If the game runs advertisements, its ad-supported

    If the game costs something so you can play, its Buy to play

    If the game is given to you, for free, with no strings attached, only then is it Free To Play.

    If the game comes with the source code, its opensource.

    Understand now?

    What?

    You need to do some research on Sony.

     

    Also, bad is not respecting human rights.

    Came back shortly after it went free to play. It has it's good points, but the game is largely just as it was at launch, almost no work has been done on it. I am using a computer that is hundreds of times more powerful, yet the game still runs terribly. Why they are bothering to advertise it, while not really supporting it, is beyond me.

    Sony corp or Sony Online Entertainment here? They are not the same thing.

    Subsidiaries are not the same thing as their parent company (because nowadays most subsidiaries are not even majority owned by the parent)

     

    Also, human rights? What human rights lol?? Charging you money to play a game THEY made is not violating YOUR human rights. Moderating a forum, which THEY own, is not violating your human rights.

    Corporation  have rights too, you know. You have freedom of speech, you have freedom of ownership, so do they. They are NOT your slave just because they sell you something.

     

    You really need to get your priority straight if you think customer service in gaming/forum moderation is comparable to child labor and polluting the environment.
