There was a post on The Altoholic this morning about an interesting topic: Which MMO is your home?
Honestly, I don't have an easy answer for that.
Being the Vagabond and all, I don't really have such a home. But there are places to which I return from time to time. The most significant of these is Vanguard.
SOE's Vanguard is special for me for several reasons: When I started playing VG (after WoW), it was a buggy piece of .. a game, but it got significantly better in a few month. Then I stopped playing with it for a while (and returned to WoW), and then I returned to VG again. For non gaming related reasons, that was the time when my wife moved back to Hungary and started the divorce procedure, so I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands, and a reason to flee from the real world. So I finally managed to get a character to the max level (first time in an mmo, not counting Guild Wars) and started raiding. Then we got back together, moved to another place, where for half a year I didn't have a broadband connection, so I stopped playing again.
But the story goes on.. this summer, VG goes free to play, which gives me the perfect reason to pick it up again and play some more..
