Global Chat: EVE Vanguard has a lot to prove


Just because you’re a huge EVE Online fan doesn’t mean that you’re instantly rallying to the cause of CCP’s EVE Vanguard. The Ancient Gaming Noob expressed some doubts about this upcoming shooter tie-in.

Mailvatar recalled four top favorite Warframe frames: “Me, I always gravitate to those that offer a healthy mix of Is really fun to play and Kicks some serious ass. Alternatively, if the content I’m trying to to clear annoys me in some way, I usually look for something that Makes the annoying thing trivial.”
