Reader John took umbrage with Matt's take on Vanguard, especially in regard to its art design, and sent in proof to rebut it: "Having started a new character in Vanguard over the weekend, I set out to prove that, just perhaps, Vanguard isn't quite as ugly as Matt Daniel seems to think. It would be a shame if people got the wrong impression, after all."
Personally, I adore Vanguard's aesthetic, but not everyone shares that opinion, nor should he -- to each his own, right? Hit the jump to see John's screenshot in its full glory as well as many other terrific player-submitted pictures!
Reader Matthew succumbs to a moment of temptation in Star Wars: The Old Republic: "Here is my Jedi Shadow tank, Kaidenn, after downing Darth Ikoral, last boss of a level 45 flashpoint. I have done this tons of times before, but today I got a pic of my character while sitting in his chair. If he could be thinking of anything, it would be 'unlimited power!'"
"This is a shot of my Necromancer in Guild Wars 2 on top the vista puzzle near Snaketail Inlet in Ruins of Orr," Chris writes. "It's a beautiful yet desolate place. He is level 80 with 45% map completion, so still a long way to go and many sights yet to see!"
Isn't it funny how we love to watch the sunset in game while the real world one is desperate for our audience? Maybe if someone would fiddle with the temperature controls on the outdoors, we would all be a lot more open to spending time out there. Just saying.
