New Beginnings

I love the graphics of Vanguard, and always have. Sure, it can bug some times. There’s a /flush command for when you experience graphic glitches. There’s a /flush all command to re-set all of the graphic engines too when you’re having a lot of bugs. There’s also a /reloadui command, if you’re having UI issues. One of my favorite commands is /setfog 99999   this takes away the murky cloudy look to the game, and gives you nothing but clear skies. Ok, so it may remove some of the atmosphere from the game, being able to see through a dark forest, but it’s still a personal preference.

Last night I joined a new guild. For those who may not be familiar, I’ve been in Safe Haven for almost three years now, and I’ve never been in any other Vanguard guild. The leader, Joodah, is an amazing person and I really respect him. Over the years the goals of the guild has changed some what, and where I used to see a lot of friendly chatter and help for fellow guild mates, has been replaced with a more end game goal. There are cliques (they happen) and a little more complaints about other players then I had the stomach to listen to. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fantastic guild, but the differences between what I want from the game and what they want are two very different things.

I applied to a guild called Impact. Their motto is to help make an impact on new and returning players. They run events such as newbie nights and a yearly faire. Their players make it their goal to help others both in and out of guild. To say I’m excited about this new prospective home is an understatement. I really hope I fit in, and that I make a few friends along the way.

I’m on a 30 day probation period, where I get to know the members and they get to know me. I was on a little late last night, but I still met a few people and got to know my surroundings. We’ll see where it goes from there.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself. I’ll see you in Telon!

    Good luck in your new guild :) I don’t know about you but I find going into a guild without any contacts extremely challenging; you don’t know what the banter will be like, what they find funny and what the in-jokes are about. This is particularly annoying for me since in my old guild (now disbanded and separated into clique-based guilds *sniff*) (and IRL) I was (am) normally the person heavily involved in the banter and the humour and the like (the politics, I found, were especially interesting to get into,) so going in without anyone to bounce off or talk to is tough t’ingz. Yah.

    Also, what’s the EU server’s population like? I may scrounge some money and go get VG again.
