Troy!
I've been a regular listener since you've started the podcast, and though i don't play vov , i've been really liking the progression and developement i'm seeing in your podcast

been very nice and intriquing to listen to



'Continental Faction' by varka

T5 boats/housing parts have always required 5k contintental faction. Also the 1 faction/WO is in major cities, outposts give 2 / WO.

It sure does suck and they definitely need to either up that, or add more quests or up quest faction rewards.

'You are right troy' by brackishwater
Submitted on 2007-08-14 10:35:01 CST
You both were right to say that there are people who do not currently play but listen here for info about the current state of the game. I myself stopped playing about two months ago but still have so much interest in the game that I can't help but follow it.

I left as a level 36 Artificer and 35 Psionicist and really would like to hear how the update and merger goes. I can see myself coming back after that if things go well. I do speak to a couple of other player who have left as well, so what you say is important as it is my only current source of VG information. Try to be honest, accurate and maintain the good viewpoint you have always had.

John, I can't help but say you sounded like a SOE Rep of some sort there. :-) It could just be the SOE Fan Faire rush still going, but man, you were pimping the SOE kool-aid. Nice to hear you on though and you both sounded great. In fact, Troy, the sound quality is a ton better. I was getting nervous when you said you had three people on with this cast but man, they were all great quality. Nice Job.



'Hehehe' by Jonathan
Submitted on 2007-08-14 21:42:03 CST
I did sound a bit SOE in there didn't I? LOL Yeah, I must admit, coming back from those panels at FanFaire really got my enthusiasm flying. It was so good to hear it right from the devs that they had all kinds of great things in mind for the game's future. Between their plans and Troy's podcast, the Vanguard community will set for quite some time ;)


'EQual Perspectives' by gorruf

Another great show Troy, I am one of the many listeners who doesn't actually play Vanguard, but am listening to keep up on whats happening with it, with plans to jump into Telon in the future, when the main problems have been fixed up. As an EQ2 player currently I am also really looking forward to your new podcast.

'I am playing Vanguard still' by scytale2
Submitted on 2007-08-16 17:41:52 CST
...and quite enjoying it, although it's still incredibly buggy and some places are tortuously slow.

Update #2 is downloading as I type, so hoepfully more improvements here. Notably almost all the enhancements are to play functionality, not to content, since Vanguard has bucketloads of quests all over the place to do (apart from in the goblin areas).

Enjoyed the show again (and Razodyne's bit) which has helped me a lot on crafting although i've yet to try the crafting cheats.

Are we getting another TMOG show? You promised....



'Game Update 2 is LIVE' by Shalimar616
Submitted on 2007-08-16 22:41:55 CST
Are you guys ready to R U M B L E!!!

Yes, GU 2 is live and it packs a ton of new tweaks to every aspect of the game. Too many big changes to talk about here, but rest assured episode 15 will have a good run down of the modifications.

Also, Sadly Michelle Butler [Community Relations Manager] has left Vanguard for new stomping grounds, but Julie, who replaced her, seems to really have the energy and drive to make thing works (I met her briefly at Fan Faire). Lets all wish her the best! Woots.

'Massive performance improvement' by scytale2
Submitted on 2007-08-17 08:49:37 CST
Just to say, there is a massive performance improvement in Update 2. It is now much more playable. Still some graphical glitches, which cause hassle if you run the game with too little RAM, but otherwise thumbs up for Vanguard.
