So you intentionally soloed the whole game without attempting any of the group content and that makes you an expert on this topic how?




The end game that Trion has in place is better than any other game out there right now and the updates they are doing are happening faster than any other game out there right now.

Sometimes, when I see all that Trion have done I'm sorry I didn't enjoy Rift more back when I tested it, if I had I'd be happily playing away safe in the hands of the most responsive dev team out there.


 


But that's moot, since I didn't enjoy it enough to buy the game in the first place. However, that'll never take away from what Trion did in terms of polish at launch, and have done since with content delivery for their players. I don't know or care how successful Rift is, as long as they are engaging the people who are playing, it's good for all of us. Trion are one to watch, and probably always will be.

I played through beta and for the first month after launch then left not because the game was bad but because I burned out. It's taken 5 months for me to go back and check what’s changed and as soon as I logged in last week its evident it's improved massively since launch and there seems like lots more to do.


 


The only bad change I've found so far is that the server I'm on was dead, it was one of the newer servers so it's not entirely unexpected having a lower population to start off with. Reading the forums it seems since the free character transfers went live people moved about a lot and there are still lots of very well populated servers.


 


I think the Trion team should be commended really for having a very good handle on updates as well as what they have done so far to the game. Without question RiFT has had the best launch of 2011 so far and continues to have the most community engaged dev team in the industry.

Imo, it is a big success. Only game after Wow I can immagine to play for years. Saying this ... I never pvp and have not started end game. So can not comment on this. Still working on 2 alts to get to 50 to have full set of 4. In wow have 10, but there you must choose at start ... in Rift this 4 classes compensate for nearly all options various classes offer in Wow.


Start was miracle in sense virtually bug free. For change also devs actually LISTEN to playerbase as noted by OP. Many nice changes implemented very fast. Would take eternity in other games.


Graphics are nicier and good then any other game I have played. And very realistic. Everything set on max I can play without any lag ... like in wow, that has cartoony (I love it, make no mistake) graphics that are not even close so hungry for power like Rift's. In many other games I can not play so fluidly not even setting all to half. And do not have bad computer.


Also when I logged after 1 month (vacation, work, ...) and found my 2 servers were transformed to "test" servers ... at start I was pretty upset ... but not being in any guild it took me few SECONDS to transfer to new server. SECONDS?? in other games can take up to day or at least hours ... they make big stories how hard is to do this and why you must pay for transfer. Bah.


In any possible sense Rift rocks. And I'm addicted to first game after wow.


Game can be soloed I guess 99% of time as for quests goes. Love this. Not social? Nope. Get guild? Useless idea. Guild in ANY game works only if guildmates are also REAL life friends. If not usually you can forget about.


Wow clone? Another stupid statement. They have however adopted best from other mmos. What could one want more? And there are many original ideas inside, espec core soul sistem. There are only 4 main "classes", but rogue can be kind'a hunter, classic rogue as in wow, can even tank, buff/debuff and even so-so heal as bard role, .... same goes for rest. This 4 cover all game needs. Minus is i will not spend so much time in game leveling all my alts as in wow. Now doing for the 4th time same quests and find them still fun and entertraining.


So far all I need for fun from part of my free time are duo Wow & Rift. If I add more, like Swotor ... I will be happy ... otherwise will be still happy.

you want to know more about the history of trion worlds and his founder lars butler. again use google search and take your time to listen to some of his guest lectures in universities on f.e. youtube.



 


Didn't know your bank has the details on a private companies financial data.

GW2 fans did it again. Turned a good topic of discussion about RIFT into Rift VS GW1/GW2. Bravo. Now off to another forum and rinse and repeat.

 I can't tell if your post is being ironic or not given your GW2 sig.

 

I'm a GW2 fan and I personally do not go into the forums of other games and bash them.  I'm sorry that other people do that.

This thread has been warned against turning it into Rift vs GW1/2, but the article we're commenting on specifically mentions the possibility that people might leave Rift for GW2 or SWTOR when they launch.  It's completely relevant to the discussion.  People who mention GW2 in the context of how it will affect Rift should not be attacked for doing so.

I don't know how many active subs Trion has.

All i know is that the two servers I play on Freeholme pvp & Silkweb pve  are packed to the point of me wishing they would transfer off my shards.

Yesterday i decided to give my lowbie warrior a spin and in scarelt gorge a level 25+ zone we have well over a hundred players participating in the zone invasion.

I can't speak for every shard but my shards are packed.

 

THis is only my opinion but from what i've encountered first hand, it looks like more people are joining the game. Its a completely different atmosphere than what we had in WAR where by this time we were all forced onto a handful of shards and every mid level zone was empty.

Trion has done a superb job with their first MMO offering a polished release unlike I've seen in years as well as new content added at an unmatched pace. With addon support coming up soon as well as plans for endgame content alternatives for those that don't want to grind dungeons, raids, or be steamrolled for 7 ranks just to gear up my guess is Rift will last for some time. How well they do will depend entirely on how they implement the alternative endgame content.

 

That being said, regardless of what they release it's too little too late for me as I'm really not interested in another chase the gear game. Perhaps if the gear gap was far, far smaller and more aesthetic/fluff content were added I'd be twmpted but TW has already chosen to gate their raid content by large gear gaps rather than keying and other mechanisms so that will never happen.

I'm not one to pay a monthly fee for a game, and Rift isn't going to change that...


 


Started my 7 day trial yesterday and it's alredy deleted off my computer. Stale quest based leveling, senseless and seemingly pointless story, cluttered interface, boring combat; well that pertty much sums it up.


 


I really don't see the enjoyment in games nowadays. All you do is quest, and strive to be top level... its a superficial experience, you get brought in by the eye candy but it fails to deliver.

And what has my signature got anythign to do with it? please do not confuse me with a GW2 fanatic who turns every topic into x games vs GW2. If the discussion was really in line and relevant to the original post. {mod edit}

 I couldn't tell if you were numbering yourself among GW2 fans when you posted it.  It could either come across as "GW2 fans ruined a thread, bravo (sarcastic)" or "we ruined a thread, bravo (sincere)."  Given your response it was clearly the former, but you can't always tell tone on the internet.

I've pointed out that mentioning GW2 in the context of Rift's future success is relevant, and the fact that there are posts which do that which have not been deleted (my original one included) is evidence of that fact.  I am in no way trying to escalate or reintroduce yesterday's conflict, but I have to point out that it doesn't have to be a game basher or a troll that instigates things, it could also be an overzealous game defender.

Well...this is kinda the thing within 6 months you may well be able to play most of the game as F2P. I actually think that Rift works better in F2P market long-term as it isn't a bad game, and could quite nicely make money by cash shop and cash pay for premium game content model. WoW will do that in next couple of years, so *shrug* why not get in their first.

Maybe in someone dreams, but if we go in real world ... Rift will be for years second only to Wow, which will stay on 1st place for long. Have high hopes also for swotor.

WOW will do it? not maybe but will? you really sound very sure of yourself. But then again when have you provided any backup for your silly claims?

"Moreover, those who generally shout the loudest about the imminent doom of Rift are those who do not actually play."


 


I wouldn't be so sure about that if I were you. There are lots of wow fanboi's who play Rift and who will not cease their endless ranting about how much it sucks compared to wow. It's rather ironic really, Rift haters doing most of thier hating while playing the game that they claim to hate so much. Makes you wonder if they really hate it that much or if they do it just for show, and some of them can shout pretty loud too. Sometimes it gets so bad that you have to block some of them just to keep the chat box from filling up with anti-Rift-spam and pro-wow-spam.


 


All I'm trying to say here is that some of the people who shout the loudest about Rift's doom are actually playing it more than you think they are.


 


Granted, this mostly comes from trial accounts and ends as soon as you enter a lvl 15 and higher zone, but it is still there, and they ARE playing the game, even if they are using free trial accounts.


 


I would also like to point out that no matter what any of you think about WoW, it is old. It doesn't matter how long the dev team tries to keep the game relevant, sooner or later it is going to be crushed by it's own age. Which is pretty much why Blizz is working on that thing called "Project Titan", whatever it turns out to be, it will be better than wow, simply because that is Blizzard's goal for the project.
