I went through this phase at one point as well , Played rift for nearly 4 months started getting bored so I decided to unsub and take a break 

couple days later I stumbled across a wow box set that included the core game + expansions.. thought what the hell i'll give it a try , Bought it took it home and installed it , Played it for a few hours before uninstalling and resubbing to rift . 

 

I only played wow for a few hours so i'm not going to pretent to be an expert on the gameplay but the graphics are just a joke , almost none of the classes even seemed remotely appealing and the world well it was big i'll give it that , Runescape is free and has about the same graphics as wow. 

 

Rift has its downsides but I had tons of fun leveling 2 characters to endgame which at any time i can change roles without having to level an entire new character , this was a big thing for me as I like playing different roles in groups from time to time , I can level a rogue and play as an archer for a few days , Respec to an assassin and have fun roaming around stealthed or repec to a tank when needed or even a support healer .. Its nice having options and only having to level 1 time to do all that. 

Rift has fun pvp 

Rift has a large open world to explore 

Rift has far better graphics and armor skins than wow 

Rift has Variety through the soul system 

 

IMO Its a far superior game to wow in terms of fun. 

 

Both games have a trial try them both everyone has different taste when it comes to gameplay.

The flipside is, after playng Rift he may be amazed with how much better the presentation is in WoW how much more character the game has than Rift.

Which is very similar to WoWs, its a 6 of one half dozen of the other situation.  

Rift has a large open world to explore 

Not counting expansions, WoW's is 3 times bigger and feels a LOT more open (thanks to a more realistic feeling mob density)

Rift has far better graphics and armor skins than wow 

WoW has far more interesting races and infinitely more unique skins (though some are indeed ridiculously ugly)

Rift has Variety through the soul system 

WoW has variety through the fact that none of the specs play the same so it essentially has 30 different classes

 

IMO Its a far superior game to wow in terms of fun. 

IMO WoW destroys Rift in fun 1-60, but the two games end up very similar at the end in terms of fun, assuming you arent burned out on WoW after multiple years

 

Both games have a trial try them both everyone has different taste when it comes to gameplay. 

Yup, no reason not to do a trial of WoW.  Obviously more people prefer WoW, but I think its worth trying both games.  Id also recommend EQ2 and LOTRO.  All 4 games are worthy of subscriptions.

Go with WoW.  

LMAO

 

 

Your kidding right?

 

 

RIft blows away Wow in every way. Its no contest. I just resubbed to RIFT and the devs have been hard at work. The game is AMAZING now. You have to check it out.

 

Many people are coming back due to Conquest, and the server im on, Wolfsbane is very very active. I cant believe how much has gone on since I left.

 

Wow? Give me a break. Its nothing more then a cartoon with 12 year olds playing these days. People are leaving it in droves, everyone is sick to death of it.

 

Rift has a more mature player base as well. You dont hear the LRNHOWTOPLAYNOOBSLOLROFLCOPTER hurp durp crap as well.

 

 

Rift or WoW?

 

Puhlease...>RIFT all the way........

Rift is a poor man's WoW.   How anyone can argue this is beyond me.  I've played both games, and WoW is FAR SUPERIOR.  The only thing Rift has over WoW is graphics and the soul system, which, ironically, lends the game to be far less balanced than WoW in PvP.  And the questing in WoW is so much better than Rift it isn't even funny.  Since they redid the old world quests for Cata, it was a lot more enjoyable.  Leveling in Rift is a chore. 

WoW has:

More content in both PvE and PvP

A larger population of people to play with

Better questing

Multiple leveling options due to zone overlap

FAR, FAR superior combat

Better Lore

Better endgame

Better armor models

Better gear itemization/customization

A massive world compared to the claustrophic Rift world

Seriously, Rift is better in every way, huh?  LMAO.

 

Seriously

 

WoW?

 

Perhaps five years ago kiddo. Now, its beyond lame. Its like playing a cartoon game with 12 year olds.

 

Enjoy playing with emo teens? Play WOW. Enjoy listening to kids talking to each other in chat? Play WoW....

 

WoW at this point is nothing more then a game for children............Like big fuzzy panda bears and cute little bitty gnomes? Like cartoons?

 

Play WOW.............

 

Rift graphics, gameplay, players, updates,  are all superior.........pvp and pve? RIFT.......hands down.......

 

simple as that..........

 

Ok, let's assume Rebel is a typical WoW player (the poster you quoted twice). Let's further assume you're the typical Rift player.

Now, which game seems to have the "emo teens" you're talking about?

The answer is very clear, at least to me.

I've seen most of the armor skins from wow they are all ugly but thats due to graphics that were top of the line 15 years ago. 

 

Rift has Variety through the soul system 

WoW has variety through the fact that none of the specs play the same so it essentially has 30 different classes

Sure but in rift you only have to level 4 characters to max level to play all of the possible combos as opposed to having to level 1 of each class in wow ( assuming thats something you wanted to do ) 

 

IMO Its a far superior game to wow in terms of fun. 

IMO WoW destroys Rift in fun 1-60, but the two games end up very similar at the end in terms of fun, assuming you arent burned out on WoW after multiple years

I was disgusted with wow after a few short hours , I played games made 12+ years ago that had better graphics and were way more entertaining , Yes detail is a big thing for me otherwise I would be playing runescape being its even more fun than wow. 

 

Both games have a trial try them both everyone has different taste when it comes to gameplay.

wow will never be short on fanbois even after its dead and gone , I got about as far in Lotro as i did in wow but I hear Lotro is free now ( I could be mistaken ) .. EQ2 was a pretty amazing game in its time rather boring now days with all thats out now.

lol go look at rifts server pop and see how much better Rift is to WOW. Ares I want what you're smoking seriously. Rift is doing anything it can do to survive as you can see with the slap dash 3 realm pvp system they are all of a sudden designing yet swear they have been doing it for a long time. The funny thing is its a rehashed map in stillmoor ironic isnt it? If you havent played wow try the free trial through level 20 and then upgrade if you like it. I do not play wow and probably never will again but saying Rift is far superior in ANY regard to just about any game on the market is ridiculous at best considering all they do is steal other games content and try to make it sound so orginal.

Oh cmon, how can people suggest he play Rift over WoW?

WoW is obviously FAR superior.

I would suggest he plays the free 20 levels, I'm sure that will be enough to hook him.

I'd say try WoW. Rift is much more linear than WoW. WoW has a starter area for each race which makes playing alts or just starting over again giving it a higher replay value. WoW has more content and if your into PvP there is way more to do. The dungeons are bigger and blah blah blah. I'm not saying Rift is a bad game, I like it, but if you haven't played WoW you owe it to yourself to play it.

WoW... and shoot for a higher population server.  If you roll on alliance, goblin is a race to get a good feel for the modernization of WoW.  Amazing starting zone.

I think that for the first time playing WoW they should either play in the human starting near Stormwind or an Orc near Orgimmar. That would set the WoW scene better than the confusion of the goblin starting area. Although I liked the goblin area (not as much as the Worgen story) it just didn't feel like it fit in with the rest of the game. Once off the ship, and in Durator I was at home! :)

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

      I'm kinda surprised so many are saying Rift....IMO WoW blows Rift out of the water for everything except graphics.....  If you've never played WOW I'd suggest playing it.

OP  5/26/12 11:41:46 PM#35

From what I've experienced from WoW from 1-20 for the first time:

*Getting my face owned in PvP (Twinks are crazy)

*Decent leveling

*Fun with addons

*Dungeons are more advanced than RIFT

* High Activity and constant groups forming

But I feel that I cant really judge the game at all until I'm 85 and idk how long that will take from level 20

I'd say sub WoW. It is the top MMO for a reason and you may be one of the people who finds it to be their favorite. While it isn't my favorite I have played all of the expansions to Level Cap and have raided/PvPed all of them.

And McDonald's is one top selling restaurants for a reason too. Doesn't make it the best food or even food that you should even eat.

 

Both WoW and McDonalds are top for the same reason. You get in, get what you need and get out.

Recently started playing SWTOR. I am posting updates to my experience in this thread:

What do you guys think?

 

If you havent played WoW i suggest you try it. Its definitely worth the try and play.  Once you do that, then its only up to YOU to decide which one you want to stick with.... We all try to brainwash peoiple with what we like... which most likely is not exactly what you like too. I played about 3 months of Rift and the game sure is not for me. On the other hand i played WoW for some time and liked it. I dont sub and resub to any mmo with payments but i end up buying 1 month of WoW here and there (every few months in between). If you like PvP then Rift is getting a new content for 3 faction pvp soon. Its great thing but im a PvE person and PvE in Rift is far form what i want (including Lore).

Try both games then decide. You might find a home in one game, and after months of playing you feel like switching for a while to have a break from the same.

People have different taste, opinions, and suggestions. That was mine. Whoever tells you Go with X because Y is a joke, is a troll. Follow your taste.

Your post made me sign into mmorpg.com to give you my insight...

Wow is a more polished game, smoother gameplay, probably better raids, better pvp for sure.  Catacylsm was a stinky joke, and dont let the promises of MoP fool you.  Do you want to pay 15$ a month for rehashed raid content, farmville, and pokemon/Michel Vicking your pets?  Scenarios, which I was excitied for, actually look completely boring.  I do not think the expansion will do well, and I can say almost for a fact that it is the most controversial WoW expansion to date.  I played wow for years, I miss WoW, but I do not like the direction it is headed, and even though my friends nostalgiically play the game still, I cant spend 15 a month on it knowing what else is out there.  I miss what the game USED to be...2-3 years ago.  Even back in BC...now THAT was WoW.  MoP is going to suck harder than cataclysm.  And 9/10 people hated cata.

Onto Rift.  Its talent system is interesting.  Graphics are good if your computer can run them (only game my computer has issues with), combat is clunky and I think at times is shitty, dungeons give you a read dungenony feel, story sucks, but the endgame content is SECOND TO NONE.  Trion is BY FAR the best Endgame Content developer out there.  I dont care if you play SWTOR, WoW, GW2, Tera...these guys pump out content and different features and gaming systems faster than you can believe it.  Other than the typical dallies, raids, pvp, hardmode dungeons...they have:  Onslaughts(build defenses and defend against waves of mobs), invasions (mobs spawn and run rampant in the world destroying things), Rifts(same as invasions but you can attempt to close these), Instant adventures (queue up for "invasion" like combat, in the real world, not instanced...very fun), Chronicles (1-2 man dungeons that take 20-30 minutes and are story driven).  Upcoming : you know the open world PVP stuff they announced. 

 

Rift is great.  Id be playing it if I ddint like Tera so much, if Rift wouldnt run like shit and if GW2 wasnt around the corner,.
