Vanguard V-Day Feature
The Softer Side of Vanguard
Candy hearts and pretty flowers are the common thoughts this time of year. Aunraye of the Vanguard @ TenTonHammer community site joins the other writer's across the network as we look at love in MMOs. She reminds us that not all love is romantic. What does she mean?
There is one thing that seems to be forgotten in all this talk of love too often for my tastes. Friendship and familial love are just as important as that all-consuming romantic swept off your feet love that we focus on this time of year...
This is true in real life and in MMO's. What game would be complete without your best friend? You raid together, craft together, and adventure together. The world is your oyster and you have had a big lunch of them, together! You have guild mates, and if you are lucky you care deeply for them. After all in an ideal world they are your mmo best friends. Just like ideally your roommates and club mates in the real world would be your best friends. Nothing is ever perfect but we're talking ideals here. There are times when we are all on our own in the MMO world wandering about practicing new spells, or working on our crafting while we wait for someone to come around. Then you get that tell, "Where are you? Wanna group?" Now this could be annoying except for one thing, it's your MMO buddy.
