Keep your trolling/hate to yourself
Me and a friend just started playing this game together about a week ago. We have a lot of experiance in MMORPG's. We have been playing one or another sense the early days of Ultima Online. Trust me on this and I speak for him aswell. This is a very good game, it is no where near as bad as most people say. They are just simple minded and get frustrated easly and/or are children that are having a temper tantrum. If they can't find people to play with its because they don't understand how the game works. It is very complicated in some areas but it is just that much more fun. A lot of thought has been put into every aspect of this game and once you figure out these things it is very very fun.

thank you I agree 100% sure this game can be hard and very frustraiting but this was made when MMO's were ment to be a challange. Nothing is just handed to you and you have to actually read through quests to figure them out. A lot of these players forget as well this game is over 6 years old so with that in mind it was very well made and fixed.

Thank you very much Steve. I'm glad there are others that understand. It's hard to get into, sometimes the quests can be hard to figure out, you can't fast travel everywhere only select locations and you have to walk it from there and so on. Its understandable why people don't like it but they should keep their comments to them self sometimes and let people make their own decisions. The game is just that much more rewarding because its harder.

I think everyone should be alowed the freedom of speech to voice their opinions, with a few exceptions like when they just dont expalin why they dont like it. Ihink we can all agree on the game could be a little better. The character moels are so and so but looks better when you get geared abit. The animations arent really the best, it just dont feel alot like exciting melee but you get used to it. But on the other hand the world looks nice and theres alot of variety. The game feels more oldschool than EQ2 and that one is older. All I can advise people to is to group with eachother since I think the game becomes alittle dull to play on yer own after a couple of weeks.

Well it was designed to be played with people for the post part anyway.

This is one of the few mmos left that is best played with a friend or in groups. That prob sets a lot of people off because they expect every mmorpg to have 99% solo content. Compared to most other games, VG can be very unforgiving for solo players. So they just QQ and throw temper tantrums on the forums.

An mmo where you NEED the help of other players to win? what a novel concept!

No seriously, I am actually looking forward to this more and more. I'm sick of getting into these mmorpgs where nobody talks or groups, and the only players saying anything are spamming the channels with ads for gold farmers. I'd actually like to get active in a virtual economy, trading and buying stuff and making money. I'd LOVE to be a part of larger raids or tackle dungeons with more than 1-2 people, and share loot and stuff.

Y'know, the kind of things you expect to do in an MMORPG. Weird how little they seem to happen these days.

i remmeber palying this and the only game i found to like more was fallen earth. I really wish i can get back into it but it's a very time consuming game, great cummunity, story, and really makes you want to work together with people thou. I recommend it for all players with some patient.

The Vanguard trolls are not simple minded folks that get frustrated easily.
They are freaks with an agenda, they will deliberately troll and bump up their troll posts regularly to do as much damage as possible.
They are disturbed personalities full of hate towards....a game and/or its publisher.
Do NOT reply to their posts because by doing so you just bump their posts up.

Vanguard is very solo-friendly, much more than other mmos, but you have to learn how and its not always obvious.
The special thing about Vanguard is how much things change when you learn the intricacies of its gameplay.
I still remember how i played my necro for like 20 levels and i thought it was a very bad solo class and then i found ways to play that allowed me to solo stuff that got groups wiped out. Thats the beauty of Vanguard, you can be playing for a long time and still have things to learn.
Most players dont like to learn though, they want easy accessibility which sadly comes at the price of depth of gameplay. You can not have it all.

Vanguard definitely doesn't hand the whole game to you as some other MMO's do, but you have to figure some of it out for yourself (god forbid). The game world is HUGE and if you're not doing well fighting where you currently are, there are plenty of other equivalent leveled areas. Also, the in game community is incredibly helpful for a MMO.

As far as soloing, you can almost always find someone to group with if you look. And the best part? Since the game isn't quite so easy as others, the players that I've grouped with actually seem to know what they're doing! It was a bit of a shock coming from the last few games that i've played.

You start off by saying you play with a friend... Obviously you're going to have no trouble finding "someone" to play with...

What about those of us who have no gaming friends. Those of us who live real lives in the real world but when we want to take a break we load up a multiplayer game and have high hopes of finding someone to interact with? Won't find that in Vangard.

I played this game on release along with several friends. I can't say if they've corrected all the massive issues that drove us away or not but I can say for a MMORPG the population level is very important and if you let a game die like the devs did on this one trying to bring it back is a difficult task that few have managed.

Honestly there really is no shortage of players in this game. It might sound foreign to people, but you may want to try actually speaking up in general chat on each of the continents. Be specific i.e. "KE group looking for 2 more, Tank and Healer!"

Stupid dungeon finders removing the need for people to actually interact with others is what's ruining games.

Also, what other game offers non single group instanced dungeon play? Only one I can ever remember that offered that is Everquest 1.
