Pantheon, maybe?  Wait out for that one?

    Best bets would be EQ1 and EQ2. If you want similar gameplay with better visuals. Closest would be Rift, Anything else doesn't exist yet.

    Vanguard was made in 2007. Check your math...

    Well, thats the question I'm asking in this forum since ages ...

    Pantheon doesnt look TOO awful but its not out anytime yet, and we wont get the awesome Vanguard classes back (no Disciple, no Blood Mage, no Necromancer, Dread Knight is completely different, Psi is completely different, ...).

    Even worse, when I checked Pantheon out, they had discussions of limiting the number of abilities to 8 or 12.

    Looking at the rest of the MMOs offered, I see no other MMO that focusses on awesomely made traditional classes either.

    And without that, I kind of lack the incentive to play.

    Both Pantheon and Saga of Lucimia are miles away still. Even the Vanguard emulator will probably be in a playable state long before their release, I'm guessing around yuletide 2015.

    But what to do until then? And don't answer EQ. I tried once and couldn't figure out which of the three polygons on screen represented my character. Graphics isn't everything, but it is something, and part of what made VG great was its stunning beauty.

    From my observation so far SotA is more like saloon game with very instanced gameplay. There is nothing from Vanguard's true epic feel and openess even close...

    I have been playing around a bit with everquest 1 after VG shut down, it has a similar feel to it with the open lands and dungeons, along with camps. They are opening a new progression server shortly here, which it what i'm really waiting for.

    The repopulation is another I have high hopes for. It is still in alpha right now, but you can back it and play. It seems to be in a pretty enjoyable state already for an alpha

    the rights went with SoE, and it won't return because it wasn't profitable. SoE closed the game several months before the company was even sold.

    EQ is launching a progression server this summer. Give that a try.

    Pantheon has been changed now ... details are still VERY VERY foggy, but it looks like a pretty good successor of Vanguard now.

    They said they "picked the best from EQ and Vanguard" and worked with that.

    I am enjoying Darkfall... it is the only game out of a handful that I always group with other people while I play. Many MMORPGs are just solo games that you play with other people but Darkfall can be much more group oriented. Also, like Vanguard, there are no instances, so you will eventually get to know everyone..

    NEWS FLASH! A bank was robbed the other day and a man opened fire on the customers being held hostage. One customer zig-zag sprinted until he found cover. When questioned later he explained that he was a hardcore Darkfall Online player and knew just what to do.

    Watch me play Darkfall and sometimes PVP in other MMORPGs on Twitch.

    Darkfall has launched!!! MAY 5th!! Join before its too late!
