Where Have All the Flamers Gone?

Ah, official MMO forums--you'll not find more wretched hives of scum and villainy. Even your Jedi mind tricks will not prevent the flaming and constant bickering that goes on there. But what if a MMO had no official forum? That's what Sigil Games Online intends to do with Vanguard: Saga of Heroes when the game launches this winter. Where will fans go? Vanguard community sites like Vanguard Ten Ton Hammer will prevent forum homelessness. We want to know how you feel about the lack of official forums. Come read more about Sigil's decision, then vote in our poll.

I think that not having an official forum for Vanguard is actually a pretty revolutionary idea, if for one simple reason--official game sites can be scary places. I've never been to an official forum that wasn't full of sniping and flaming. And it's no one's fault, really. No matter how well the moderators do their job, when you put that much digital humanity in one place at a time you're going to end up with, to quote Obi-Wan Kenobi,"'a wretched hive of scum and villainy."
