What does that have to do with my opinion that an xp penalty for dying is stupid?

I wasn't expecting it to run it smoothly. My point was that I know my computer is slower but even at the lower settings, the game is herky-jerky. Is known for bad performance. It does seem better than it was during the beta. In fact I can have most settings on medium high and it runs good. THe problem is it is inconsistent with all things being the same in the surroundings.

I had a kickass Dell computer a little over two years ago that would get its ass kicked by most modern day games now. The tech advances a little faster than that, and you have to keep up with it.
LOL! No you don't. My computer can run all the games out today just fine. Sure I have to settle for medium settings but it does fine.

Not saying that Vanguard's well optimized, because it isn't, but most games out there won't run smoothly on a 2-year old machine w/ decent graphics settings.
Yes they will. I have most of the newest games out today. I'm not a n00b to computers either. I've built computers for well over a decade.

Of course building a new puter would be great for this game but you agreed with my main point. The game is not well optomized.
