A New Direction for Vindictive

Postby Tryden » Thu Nov 02, 2006 11:44 pm

Good evening,

A lot of you might have noticed that things are dying down with CoH/CoV. And not just on our server. Every server. There's no real content in the game that we haven't experienced yet, and as of now, we're simply repeatedly running the same missions/Strike Forces/Raids over and over.

To put it painly, the game's dying. Cryptic didn't put in enough high end content when they released CoV, and now they can't implement new Issues fast enough to make up for it.

I was talking to a few people, and rather than lose more of our core members because they have nothing to come online for, I have a radical suggestion.

Vindictive moves to a new MMORPG.

Mainly, World of Warcraft, which will be releasing a huge expansion in January. Read about it here: The Burning Crusade.

Just to give you guys something to think about. I don't want to lose touch with any of you, and I certainly don't want to see more people leave the game. Maybe a lot of you will be against this. But when I played Wow, I never ran out of things to do there. The world is vast. It's not repetitive because they release new content as often as CoV, but the new releases tend to be larger and with more new things to do.

So feel free to reply with your own ideas. Initially I wanted to suggest Warhammer as the new MMO for Vindictive, but that's not coming out till next June.

Also, we can keep this site. All we'd have to do is switch it from being listed as a CoV VG to a WoW Guild.

Well I was talking to Dominion XXX about checking out WoW not too long ago.
As most of you know, I was having cpu/video card problems. So I bought a new Ge force 7600 gt to replace my crappy ATI x600 video card and added another gig of RAM at Best Buy (retail electronic store) and had it all installed at the store. Well the tech who installed the stuff was a hard core CoV player who quit the game for WoW, basically the same complaints we all have about CoV.
1. too much grind over and over.
2. basically the same mish or goals regardless of levels.
3. lack of any depth.
4. everyone's NOT playing anymore or not enough active ppl.
5. B O R I N G !
Anyway, the tech. gave me a 2 week trial of WoW for free and he told me that all the employees at the store started a guild and swears that it's all that and a bag of chips. lol. Well I'll let you know when I play WoW if it's true?  Jorge.

Yeah, I've been thinking about giving WoW a go around, but I'd have noidea where to star with the classes and so forth.  They added twonew classes it looks like and the class I'd like to try out it seems isthe Dragon ppl as a Warrior.  Continue my melee class only role =)

Well they added two new races. And I played WoW for over a year before starting Vindictive here; I could be of some help as far as what classes to play based on your style. I'm planning to make a Blood Elf Mage (hopefully they don't get nerfed because right now they're awesome) and an Orc Warrior, since those never go out of style. Unless we chose to go alliance. Either way, it doesn't matter to me. (I prefer horde....Tryden's battlecry gives that awayImage)

Also, if we do this, we should schedule it when a new server comes out so everyone is the same level.

Well, I would wait and see what i9 has to offer first and I wouldn'tjump ship to WoW until it's new expansion came out anyways.  Iused to play a game called Monster Hunter that I loved dearly. I'm still pissed they never did release Monster Hunter 2 here in thestates, but the first game will always have a place in my heart and itwas the first game I played that was MMO like.

I'm just saying....we'd all start off at the same level as noobs and be able to team together like the early days of Vindictive. I think it'd be a lot of fun.

Warhammer is supposed to come out late 07 IIRC and Age of conan is also worth checking into for people who are into lots of blood and gore.

I might give Wow a shot again but i was not too impressed with it when it first came out.

Btw there is already a guild called vindictive in WoW signed up with guildportals.Image

I too don't want to lose touch with any of you etiher. I would willingly move over to another game or games to continue to play with the same people.

I agree that maybe we should keep Vindictive here as well.

WoW sounds cool with me.
