Vanguard: "Double Experience"
Posted: Monday March 5th, 2007 by

If the comic doesn't speak for itself, this weekend was a Double Experience Weekend in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes and I took full advantage it.

Being a staunch soloer and diplomacy junky, I don't really get many opportunities to pile on experience. But when offered double experience for every kill I tally, it's not really something I can ignore. So, after spending most of Saturday morning securing new diplomacy cards and gear, I set off to gain a level. Through the rest of Saturday and up until Sunday afternoon, I plodded about laying waste to anything that crossed my path and netted me XP. When I finally logged off to watch Bill Mahr, Rome etc. I'd gained 3 levels. Sure it was only to 18, but for me that was significant.

Playing that much in just a couple of days exposed a lot of glitches in the game. Sure, I expected and forgave it, but that doesn't mean I wasn't as frustrated with them as everyone else seems to be.

I find myself in an odd position however. I realize the game had to be released because Sigil was out of development capitol, and that meant release a buggy game or no game at all. (Given the two I strongly support the former.) At the same time though, I'm a gamer and I don't like struggling through something I'm supposed to be using as an escape. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy Vanguard, moreso than any MMOG I've played in a long time. But, there's room for improvement to be sure.

Luckily, the Sigil staff seems to be working really hard to whip the game into shape.
