Now when I first saw this latest news update on Vanguard Players I was absolutely certain that it must be somehow related to Vanguard... a promo maybe, cross selling initiative or some such. I mean SOE wouldn't be so obviously trying to market and make a buck, even if it was not in the least bit relevant. Noooooo, they wouldn't do that.
Oh wait, didn't they try to get everyone to sign up for the more expensive all station access pass by offering us a groovy new ONLINE TRADING CARD GAME !! I am sure they learned their lesson so this leads me to believe that this must have simply been a case of incorrect text accompanying their image in the news article .
To show that I am a good guy, I have added in what I assume to be a more relevant caption for the image.... I present you with an image of the upcoming new playable races!
I'm thinking the chickens are evil looking so will more than likely allow for necromancer as a class choice! WOOT!
Cornbane the Evil Chicken Necromancer shall walk the lands soon!
Maybe at this rate we will soon have in game advertising too! Mind you, if all this marketing they are forcing down our throats somehow helps to fix the game with the profits earned then please make it so!
