It has been some time since the news that Vanguard: Saga of Heroes will be getting some love in the form of two content updates by the close of this years Fiscal Year for SOE. The long silence has caused spouts of worrying to pop up (like weeds in your garden) on the forums. Cries for status updates are starting to turn into conspiracies that it was all just a hoax or some experiment to see if/how many people they could get to open up subscriptions with news of renewed updates.
Naylie has posted several times that the roadmap is still being worked on and that it has taken longer than they liked cause of changes being made to what was on the list. That settled things down for a while, but as the silence stretched on more naysayers have started becoming vocal. One thread even saw some heavy post deletions for Trolling.
What I wanted to relate to you all is Naylie’s latest post updating the roadmap project, specifically:
Unfortunately the plan is still be re-worked. They sort of had a plan and then a change was made to it so now they have to re-figure out what is happening. Yes they are working on things and yes it is going slower than they anticipated. We really hope to have the plan settled. Once it is settled the Developers have agreed to be on a podcast to talk about it.
The last sentence left me in such a giddy titter I had to look around to make sure none had heard my unmanly girlish squeal. Ok, maybe I wasn’t affected that bad but it did get me excited and a little nervous as well. I am fairly new to Podcasting and am not sure how great my interview skills are. I do far better with writing than I do with speech. I only know of one podcast out there currently that is talking about Vanguard, and I did ask Naylie about such a possibility of getting the Dev’s to come on our show. Vanguard Forever wasn’t specifically named so I won’t guarantee that it was us that the comment was aimed at and I won’t be upset if it turns out to be someone else. I fully support any and all who work to expand and better the Vanguard community and I will be happy to sit in the general audience if another cast gets the interview.
