My reasons for resubbing to rift(today).

1. GW2 Beta, while incredibly fun, felt very alien to me in many of its mechanics. Made me realize that while i might be a bit tired of the plain old holy trinity gameplay, its still something im very comfortable with.

2. It gets great support by trion. I find it hard to get into dead/dying games, like vanguard or WHO. I don't dislike them, infact i would probably enjoy them but if i don't see a dedicated team behind the game it seems like a waste of time. Part of the fun in MMOs for me is the constant renewal they get with updates and patches, its really mandatory for me to even consider paying a sub.

3. Its a very complete game, instances, raids, BG, LFG tool, BGs and dynamic world events. SWTOR, all gloom and doom aside, is still a very young game with quite a ways to go if it wants to compete with rift or WoW purely on features.

4. I agree with the basic design decisions of the game. Like how they try to implement 3 faction pvp etc. Im not saying the way they do it is the holy grail, but its a way i can get behind. Opposite would be the changes blizzard plans with MoP, or the overly strong focus on cinematic VO story in SWTOR. Doesn't mean the game is dead to me, but if i don't agree with the decisions the devteam makes im alot less likely to play their game.

I have loved Rift since the beta and I've been a paying customer but I am starting to get tired of it.

Mainly because of one reason:  Balance!

 

Rift has 32 souls that can be combined in all sort of ways and most people can live with some slight inbalance with a system like that.

But now after a year you can understand that Trion has no idea how to balance the souls after 8 patches of nerfs and buffs.

 

The problem is now that the nerfs and buffs have been over the top in most cases meaning that some souls have been awsome one month and the worst the next, and after a year it still that more than half of the souls s u c k s and a few is totally awsome!

 

Rift doesnt have 32 souls when it comes to pve raiding or high end pvp, it more or less have about 10-12.

Rift is one of the better mmo out right now (as far as themeparks go anyway).  I really enjoy being hunted by NPCs (makes the game feel alive...at least more so than others which I know isn't saying much).  I'm still looking for than game which really feels alive.  You know, the one where when it rains, things actually get wet.  When it storms, we really have lightning, that really strikes the ground (or other stuff) and is can catch fire.  A game that has fog, fog that really rolls in.  Their are hundreds of games and each one has it's own great feature.  Someone just needs to bring them all together.  Untill then, I guess Rift it is unless someone can tell me of this great game I seek.................maybe I should just learn and create it myself...........waiting on a billion dallor company to do it may never happen.

I enjoy Rift.  I have been playing for 3-4 months now.  I guess it does get a little boring at times, but what MMO doesn't? There is always new content so it is pretty decent.  You have to raid to enjoy the game.  If you don't raid... the game will suck.  Personally I only play MMOs to raid, so I'm ok with that.

 

There are people in my guild who have been playing since release and other people who have been playing for over a year, so the statement about how everyone quits after 2-3 months is totally false.  Personally I have already been playing longer than that and have no intention of quitting soon.  I enjoy the raiding.

 

I am really looking forward to the expac.  I am excited about the new soul each class will get.  That will really make the game interesting.

After playing GW2 this weekend I resumed Rift, and had to quit after an hour. Besides the fact that there was nothing new to do, the combat is so boring compared to GW2. Rift needs to take a lesson from GW2 on dynamic events.

As much as I like GW2, and think it s a good second game, I had the opposite effect this weekend. GW2 is good, but Rift is just as good. They will be a good 2 game combo.

I played Rift to the level cap then stopped. I didn't like the pvp over there and I'm not into the raiding thing so there didn't seem to be a hell of a lot else to do. Playing about with those rifts became more lke hard work after a while and lets be honest, there's only so many times you can do the "go and get 10 bits of wood and kill 30 random mobs while you're at it" type of quest without getting bored. It's not a bad game by any means, I quite enjoyed the first 30 levels or so but I decided it wasn't for me and didn't renew my sub after grinding to the cap.

Its the combat for me. Rift is standing in place mashing a skill rotation till someone dies. GW2 is running around, dodging, switching weapons, retreating to heal, getting knocked down, getting back up, rezing strangers, rapidly switching between a few attacks and manuevering, and trying to figure out what the heck is going on. And you might be underwater too.

Looks like someone is sitting up front on the hype train. Well guess we will see what happens a few months after it releases. For as many of you GW2 guys keep saying how great the game is why don't they have a release date yet? If it says nothing else about Arenanet it says that content updates will be slow to come out which is one problem people playing Rift don't seem to have. 

 

No matter how great the combat is if there is no new content updates or they are few and far between that combat had better be great because people will tire of it fast and will need something to hold them over. You GW2 fans remind me so much of AOC fans as I swear I have dejavu everytim one of you guys talk about the "awesome graphics" and how great the combat is. 

 

Bottom line the thing that has killed almost every MMO post release is lack of anything to do at max level and being too slow releasing updates after launch. GW2 already says there is nothing new to do at max level and sells it as a feature and the slow to even announce a release date for the game that all the fans say is so great already seems obvious where the game will go. AOC and Vanguard seem so familiar to GW2 pre-release.

I alpha tested Rift, played for well over 6 months then unsubbed, for me it was the soul nerfs, because they do not simply tweak they gut the soul, it is a very polished game, enjoyable, but I hate nerfs in the manner Trion does them. Still nothing like the LH axe nerf in DAOC but hey what can I say, same devs :P

GW1 had usually updates at least once a month with out any monthly fees.

I appreciate that Trion is trying to push the envlope but they do have 2 other games under development right now and they need the support for them - that is where the sub maybe going.

That said, I appreciate all they have done in Rift - it is a decent, polished game. I am done with the grind for better and better end game just so I can play for the next big thing. It just gets boring.

Its not hype if Ive actually played it. I talked up the great stuff about rift that they inovated too. I give credit where credit is due.

ToR has it's issues but it is not as bad as people around here make it. People had doomed this game from the moment it was announced, so it is no suprise that it's not pulling WoW numbers. I for one do not see why devs and players feel that an MMO has to have 10s of millions of players. Back in the 90s a MMO was glad to  have 10k players, and in comes WoW to upset the balance of things, and on a side note Rift is in the same boat as ToR. At least EA/BW has  the balls to post their sub numbers whether that be real or fake. I havent seen sub numbers for Rift since that game been out, but than they hide behind the private company bit. So they do not have to disclose that information.

Their playerbase isn't hurting, if that's what you're referring. I see plenty of players on RIFT on at all hours.

They are announcing a release date this month or the next. Also your logic is... well, it's horrid, to be honest.

"For as many of you GW2 guys keep saying how great the game is why don't they have a release date yet? If it says nothing else about Arenanet it says that content updates will be slow to come out which is one problem people playing Rift don't seem to have."

What? You're saying that because they haven't annoucned a release date they will have slow content updates? Wow, that makes a ton of sense! The game is still in beta, and they plan to have a third one too. That has nothing to do with how fast they will release content updates in the future.

The pvp? The pvp in Rift is good not great but good and definitly better than alot of other mmos on the market. PVP is what kept me playing for extra months after the 3 reasons you gave got boring. To me the endgame pve was "meh" very repetitive and got old fast.
