So after realizing that my Station Pass pays for this game I figured I might as well get it. And I'm a sucker for collector's editions so I spent way too much on that. But it has a cloth map, woo!
Started a darkie necro named Sindarin on Flamehammer, but there are some bugs that make that class damn near unplayable, at least solo. Pet aggro that works when it wants to, pets vanishing when chunking or evacing... plus, the dark elf starting area is a pain in the ass. So I started a wood elf ranger, name's Zavijah, and I like the class so far. At 55 diplomacy now too, that's a damn fun minigame with some nice rewards (already got a 12 slot bag and 8 or 9 silver from it).
Servers are down right now for a hotfix, but I'll look for you guys when they come back up.

Nothing makes me angrier than logging in to see "Flamehammer is down. Waiting for it to come back up."

Are there any official discussion forums for this game? I can only find some support forums off of SOE's site and nothing off Vanguard's main site.

I figured I'd pop in and ask a couple of questions. I've been looking for something more complex than WoW, and thought about heading back to EvE. Then I remembered playing this while it was in beta and enjoying it quite a bit. Is it honestly fun enough to justify me running out and dropping 50 bucks on it? I dig group oriented content more than solo stuff, and I guess this game has alot of that. Also I dig the races and the scale of the place, but just have doubts as to whether or not it's fun in the long term.

well, to me? Yes. 100% yes. I've had an absolute BLAST with this game. more fun than I have had with an MMO in a long time. I would reccomend picking it up and giving one of us a shout to get you in the PA guild. it's double the fun when you can group with these crazy bastards.

I was thinking about buying this game. I've been reading Fires of Heaven, and I see a lot of constant bickering and hating on this game, so I'm not really sure what to do.
My DSL should be here tomorrow, or the next day, so I'll be able to download it (hopefully) and try out a buddy key someone gave me.
Is the game improving a lot? That's what I'm worried about. I really don't want this game to become another dead MMO. :/

This is the perfect counterpoint to Eve for me. I get my PvP and/or world altering fix from Eve and my PvE and/or fantasy theme from Vanguard.
So far Eve seems deeper and more complex overall, but Vanguard is easilly the deepest PvE centric MMO I've played, and I've played most. Vanguard gives me that same kick EQ did back when it first came out, which is pretty scary.
I'm quite happy running both subscriptions for a while and playing whichever suits my mood.

I don't know where people are pulling the "WoW clone" reference from, the game has very little, if anything in common with WoW from gameplay to look and feel.
