My only hope is that Rift is good enough to hold me over until the release of  GW2 :)

I did witness several Rifts wipe maybe 30-50 lowbies in a lowbie  zone.  That was during Beta 4.  The first couple Rifts you come to are very easy, but in teh same zone they had some unbeatable rifts emerge.  Im sure this will all be tweeked throughout beta and launch.  Anyone remember the server wide message "thanks for all the testing, now prepare to die" then the sky goes black and what seemed like countless rifts open in every direction.  That was the coolest beta experience I have ever had.

So very true!

I'm used to closed beta coming around and a few things change here and there.  Then open beta arrives, and nothing changes except some bug fixing.  Between beta 1 and now, Rift has changed more than I've ever seen any other game do prior to launch.  And it's not because they're fixing all sorts of broken stuff, but because they're taking the solid concepts that they started with and modifying them based on player feedback.  

This is the first time, "it's only beta" might actually prove to be a truism rather than a way for devs and fanbois to feel good about their pet project's shortcomings.  Very refreshing!

I've seen a great many comments on this and other forums that mirror my own experience:  "meh" about beta 1,  surprised by beta 3 and now seriously looking forward to beta 5.  If only Sigil had taken the same development approach that Trion is!

Thanks!

It's only really arriving with this beta, so we'll have to see.  We know it's 2-faction like WoW.  There are BG's.  Players from the other faction can cross into your faction's territory (sort of like Aion, I guess), but it also sounds like you can flag yourself for PvP if you want to participate in that.  (This may only be on PvE servers, though.)  There's also PvP progression, sort of like in WAR.

A couple key differences, however:

  1. PvE gear lets you be competitive in PvP and vice versa.  
  2. A PvP soul is available for each archetype.  This soul has fewer talents and skills -- probably because it doesn't become available until quite a while after your PvE souls.

That is the main thing they speak of, on the other game I play, while waiting for the next Rift Beta event. Those that I talk to,and have heard of Rift, and that is alot, says Customer Support first, and the character soul atunement system second, it's wining over people who are not so impressed with the graphics chosen for the enviroment style... I'm suprised when someone says they "don't like the graphics", it's kinda wierd to me that someone would chose enviroment style over ease of play.

Rift will be on life support in 6 months from people going in it thinking is was going to be a mix of EQ  and  early world of war craft challenge but its just a easy mode game.

 

 

PVP is as they said battle ground mini games but much smaller then even I was thinking want to hit the enemy side's base ok run 10 secs forward 20 on the larger mini game map.

That was very hard to read mate, Maybe you should look over that again.

Anyways, I also hope that Rift doesn't become easy mode, I think that will majorly influence my decision to buy the product.

i am looking forward to playing the beta event today. i have mild to moderate expectations so there is no way they can really fail them. i've only seen one trailer and barely read anything about this product but it was enough to get me interested in trying it and applying for beta. im mostly looking for something different from all my fall back mmos. i hope that i am pleasantly surprised :) GL and HF everyone.

This guys at trion are doing an awesome job listening to their player´s base.

They show care for their first born mmo child.

I dont know if the game will be a success or a flop but I tell you these guys deserve a bright future.

Some games might learn a lesson or two about listening to your costumers... and yes I am thinking about warhammer.

great work devs doing & nice to see they listen to all feedbacks. hope to find high standard game once released.

try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

I dunno about the rest of you but I thought giving out 25 keys to beta testers so you could invite friends and guild members to the beta was a very good idea .Trion do seam pretty clued up . I think this game will do very well indeed .

Hah - intentional or not, that's the thing I haven't seen yet in the Rift Beta, the gold spammers.  Maybe they are waiting for release so Trion can't counter them before it starts.  It's just a matter of time with all this interest, and I hope the devs have something to slow them down.

Haven't seen any obvious bots either, but that could be the same idea, to not tip your hand before it counts.

The game is shipping with a built in spam filter, the devs have stated is a learning filter though, so people will have to report spam when they see it and it will eventually taper off.

That's a good beginning imo but the only thing that can prevent botters and hackers from totally screwing a game...*cough*Aion...is an active GM presence on the server so they can just ban those assholes outright.

Must say I'm impressed by the changes here.

Almost all of the practical stuff I asked them to change or add has indeed been added or changed in this patch so far, with some stuff like the OP racials coming later on.

Great job Trion, I mean it.

I can't compare it to GW2 but one game I think it does match from what I've seen is Vanilla WoW . It may even be one up on it . Much depends on the endgame . I've heard rumours they have had a million pre-orders already how true these are remains to be seen . But I would'nt be suprised .

Is it over yet...

1/25/11 10:57:55 AM#38

I really am impressed with how this game is shaping up. I really wasnt that impressed during the early beta tests but at this point I can't complain. Like a lot of people said, the devs are so reactive. I can't count how many times I actually saw them on the servers helping people fix stuff.
