Pantheon is made by the same guys that made Vanguard! Support them and you can have a new game to move over to! - http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1588672538/pantheon-rise-of-the-fallen

I'd hardly call that a recommendation for Pantheon! The headline would read "Team of people who made a game that flopped really badly making another one"

Tach, the game didnt flop, it just didnt get any Love from SOE at all. It did last 7 years without any real expansion or updates. Its closing as a "staegic marketing move" to force players to play EQNext, which I hope you dont play so the average level of intelligent players in it remains high.
As for the same "team", it is not the same team, but, it is being headed by one person from the VG creation team, Brad MCQuaid. Who was on the original EQ team with Verant before it sold to SOE. So get a clue before posting rubbish.

They had the audacity to call this game the best mmo on the internet. if its the best mmo why kill it?

Don't blame SOE! They rescued this game when it was floundering and Brad McQuaid was too busy stuffing his face with drugs.

Not giving McQuaid another dime of my money until something concrete is presented. I already invested in him with Vanguard. Might I also add that he promised the same things he is promising in pantheon, a stategic and deep combat system for starters, in Vanguard and did not deliver. So no, I will not support him in another endeavor on promises alone.

good think Salim is in charge. Brad is not alone here.

I really enjoyed Vanguard for about a year. The game could have been something amazing but SOE let it rot. But lets remember Brad McQuaid ruined it all himself with that terrible launch and SOE had to bail him out! I am shocked VG lasted this long in the shape it was in, that I had the opportunity to fully enjoy it bugs glitches unfinished content and all. There will be no replacement for Vanguard....or the original EverQuest for that matter. No MMO will match VG's crafting, ships, or housing any time soon. The original EQ had starvation...encumbrance, xp loss, corpse runs, and a total disregard for class "balance"!! I know what I want and modern MMO titles are not delivering it.

This kind of stuff reminds me of the biggest downside of MMOs. They die! Oh sure EQ1 is still around but its a completely different game now, its dead in my book. Unlike my old console and computer games which are immortal and can be played in their original format.
