  • EQ2! I left Vanguard about a year ago after the last group content dungeon was added (Old Targanor Keep?  I already forget what it was called).    I leveled my group from 1 to 55 over about a year.     It was a great game and I will always regret n…
  • I am always amused by these nostalgia threads.  You know what I recall from back in 1999-2001?  A lot of B!ITCHING and COMPLAINING about how bad EQ was and how much SOE sucks.  Sure, people continued playing but eventually they moved on when new gam…
  • I'd agree that the tutorial zones (or whatever you want to call them) aren't very challenging.  They even gave me a console game vibe.   I really could do without all the "DOUBLE KILL"  "MEGA SUPER KILL BLAMMO!"....ya, no thanks.  Cute, I laughed th…
  • SOE is one of the big producers of MMO's.   The EQ franchise has some damn good foundations in the MMO market.   There is no question as to why it is being hyped up.  SOE hasn't released a fantasy MMORPG in years.    The time has come.   It deserves…
  • Console gamers ruined the MMO market.    No MMO will ever be good because of this.   If a company markets to the "older" generation, it just fails because the market isn't big enough.  So, they have to market to the console generation.   They have r…
  • The thing I remember the most is how everyone hated SOE and all the annoying crap in the game.   People really HATED SOE so much they said they would never play an SOE ever again, lol.    EQ was fun.   It was good because of the player base.  The g…
  • Everything you want in in an MMO was done fairly well in WoW, but I wouldn't consider any of those features to be the best in the market.  It was just reasonably well rounded so you can satisfy most people for a while at least. However, I think the…
  • Thanks.   I'll probably pick it up when it's on sale next.
  • Originally posted by outfctrl This is what scares me about Kickstarters: Fully Funded Kickstarter Game Goes Belly Up After reading that my guess is the guy running the company was probably a jacka$$. 
  • I don't think the law in the USA allows crowd funding to be used as a form of investment.  That's why you won't find any crowd funding project offering any actual stake, or returns on investment, in the company.  They can only offer trinkets. At le…

  • What you are suggesting would change the game into something completely different.   A game I would not play at all.  I am not a fan of Rift or GW2 and would not want any of the features from those games put into Vanguard at all.  I am pretty sure m…
  • I don't play SWTOR, but everything you described I have witnessed in almost every MMO I have played in the past 13 years.   None of that  really has anything to do with the developers, but the playerbase.       
  • I haven't done it, but I would assume you copy the files from the TEXTURES and WINDOWS directories from the Maddy add-on into the same directories under your shell/interface directory. Then you have to edit the INDEX.XML and SKININFO.XML files fou…
  • Vanguard was a pretty good game from the beginning.  Sure, it had some bugs, but people would have endured them if it wasn't for the real reason for it's demise.  I feel like I am the only one who remembers this, but WoW released Burning Crusade on …
  • I can sympathize.  I miss the "good ol'days" myself.  However, twenty years have passed.   What you're saying is akin to listening to Vanilla Ice [or Lil' Wayne or Eminem - take your pick] and getting upset that he doesn't sound like The Beatles.  …
