What Makes a Great Vanguard
Vanguard is still months from
launch. Most Vanguard community sites are working away to try and bring
fans all the news and information they can. When theres not a lot of
news to report, many of the community sites grow quiet. After all,
theres nothing big to talk about, and nothing new to offer. But one
community site puts out new content up to 6 days a week. Can you guess
which one? Hmm? Dont strain yourself; its an easy answer.
Of course, the site that puts out a constant stream of content is
Vanguard Ten Ton Hammer. Our newly launched href="http://vanguard.tentonhammer.com/index.php?module=ContentExpress&file=index&func=display&ceid=382&meid=160">article
archive should be proof enough of that.
We know that youll all want plenty of guides and information, as well
as a solid database, once Vanguard launches. And all those things will
certainly be here. We also think we have a pretty good idea of what
youre looking for right now while Vanguard is still in beta, and were
working hard to provide it. Even so, we thought wed ask for your
opinion. What are gamers looking for?
All the News...Period
The New York Times has proclaimed to have all the news thats fit to
print. Rolling Stone Magazine tweaked that phrase a bit and offered,
all the news that fits. Were not a print publication, though, were
an online community. We dont have to worry so much about whats fit to
print (just about all of the news is), nor whether it will fit. We have
virtually unlimited space. You want Vanguard news? Weve got Vanguard
Stuff that Makes You Think
We like editorials because theyre fun to write. We hope you like
editorials because they make you think. That said, we doubt our
community members want a steady diet of our opinions, so we try to keep
the editorials to a minimum (which is pretty tough for a pre-launch
site that puts out content all week long, Ill have you know!) Do you
like editorials? Let us know.
The Meat and Potatoes
Any site that offers good guides, interviews, and information is likely
to score big with Vanguard fans. We know that as well as you do, which
is why weve put together class introductions (see the left sidebar), target="_blank"
Cliffs Notes, and href="http://vanguard.tentonhammer.com/index.php?module=ContentExpress&file=index&func=display&ceid=382&meid=160#Guides">more.
It's difficult to pull these things together for a game thats still in
beta, but we do it because, ya know...we love you guys.
Home is Where the Community Is
Community helps make a site feel alive. The more people who talk and
share thoughts, news, and ideas...the more vibrant the community will
feel. We think weve got a pretty vibrant community right now, and its
growing week by week. Add your voice any time in our href="http://vanguard.tentonhammer.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=index">forum.
During the beta phase of Vanguard, weve tried to give you a good
balance of all the ingredients that make up an informative and lively
gaming community. Now we want to know whats most important to you.
