You are not talking to gamers who have done many BETAs, built many computers and work in IT. We know our stuff and we now know this game blows. I am VERY easy to please with games. I like lesser games that most of y'all won't play and I am telling you I didn't like Vanguard and I really wanted to like it.
You see the thing with MMOOs is THEY SHOULD WORK TWO WEEKS BEFORE ITS RELEASE! IMO, this game needs to be pushed back 3 months even if they get the system optimized. It still has many bugs.
BTW the whole interface was a rip off from WoW. Basically it was the WoW interface with a Vanguard theme.
well it only runs like a slideshow on my pc while the HD is getting thrashed, im getting 30-60fps, my problem is HD thrashing, theres a bad error in coding a decent object and texture cache for VG. Introducing LOD's and object fading as well as culling objects not in view needs to be addressed, this is the the reason most people are experiencing stutters.
The exact same thing happened when EQ2 came out, and look how EQ2 runs now
since SOE is helping Sigil atm by sending over a team of coders, i am hoping they will bring usefull knowledge to the sigil team in this area.
