A Couple of Diplomats: Gerec and ChrisChairs from Vanguard Tact
Ah, the art of diplomacy. Will Rogers equated it to 'saying 'nice doggie' until you can find a rock.' But while adventurers in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes will be sharpening their weapons (which is perhaps a more sophisticated way of finding a rock), the members of the diplomacy sphere will engage in civilized conversation. AnomalousSilence has interviewed a couple key players from Vanguard Tact, and their interesting parley reveals their gaming history, as well as their thoughts on Vanguard and the Vanguard community.
AS: How long did you play EQ? What as your MMOG progression after EQ?
Chris: I stuck with EQ for over two years, but things began to get incredibly boring for me, and my goals in life became clearer, so I took a bit of a hiatus from MMOGs for about half of a year. (I can tell the reader that half a year without MMOGs is quite possibly the worst thing ever.) Then I picked up World of Warcraft. To be totally honest, I liked WoW. Sure, I used the filter a whole lot, but it was a nice, easy game and I wasn't looking for a huge challenge. I leveled to the top of that game and I quit shortly before joining the Vanguard community in July 2005. I played EQ2 for a couple of weeks, but let's just say that it wasn't my cup of tea.
