Nice! Rift is the best themepark out there IMO, even better then WoW. I woulda subbed awhile back after my free trial, but I had time commitments, now I'll defiantly go back.

Whenever i step outside, somebody claims to see the light
It seems to me that all of us have lost our patience.
'cause everyone thinks they're right,
And nobody thinks that there just might

Idk Im happy more people will play rift but im sad to see the sub market loose another one to FTP.

Maybe rift will be different but ftp means a community that doesn't necessarily  value the game or players, and lots and lots gold spam :(

Isn't it funny that back then whenever someone said that Rift will/should go F2P, people raised a sh*tstorm allover these posters and now that F2P is actually the case (as many have predicted), the same folks cheer Trion for this "all so smart move"?

Rift is not a good enough game to keep people paying for, no matter how you try to spin it this time. Period.

Another one in the Fail2Pay line. Defiance next.

Doesn't exactly mean "income" but I hope the cash shop isn't going to be draconian in nature much like SWTOR was when it began with having to buy "Hotbars"..

It won't happen, just read the official thread:

It's a good move, not P2W at all, and now this game will kick ass 95% of F2P games on the market IMO.

I really dont think free to play means a company is failing anymore. Star Wars seems to be recovering quite nicely and honestly if Rifts going free to play I may have found me a new home.

Or as its known in WoW, players.

I played WoW for 5 years, I completely agree.

I concur, played since Vanilla beta.


When will people get off their "People have jobs and pay monthly for a game therefore they can't possibility be trolls" high horses? Do they not know about the videos on youtube? People in their 30s, 40s, and 50s acting like the kids people are claiming only F2P attracts. Please.

The strong are sometimes wrong but the weak are never free.

I guess it doesn't surprise me but it does make me a bit sad  If SWTOR proved you can't maintain a sub only game by throwing gobs of cash at the problem then Rift proves that you also cannot maintain a sub only game by having a high quality game with constant updates. While it is too much to say that subscriptions are dead I might finally agree that sub only genuinely is over.

WoW? even that titanic is steadily loosing subs. Only difference there is that she is so big that she can afford to keep sinking for several years yet before its time to get to the lifeboats. I think Blizzard is too busy working on titan to care about WoW shrinking. They knew it would happen sooner or later.

EVE will probably be the only other one to stay primarily sub based but EVE has always been a strange bird and PLEX puts it into a weird category where you can eventually, kinda play for free if you are good at making ISK but ultimately everything for them still runs off of game time. But I think that works for EVE in a way that other games don't. Virtually everything in EVE is time constrained so time based access to the game is really woven into its DNA.

But I still walk away wondering one thing. The only remaining sub based game that is still actually growing its numbers, no matter how slowly, is also arguably the most successful sandbox ever, that being EVE. I wonder what will happen with the incoming wave of new sandbox titles that are on the way? Will the demise of P2P impact sandbox or will sandbox impact game pay models? Probably both.

All die, so die well.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

5/14/13 5:18:00 PM#132

Bit amazed honestly. I had a feeling with how the market was but just didn't think it would happen so suddenly. 


What is more amazing is its an actual Western MMO that currently it doesn't sound like it has crazy restrictions. It sounds... almost like a Eastern game in how Free the game will be to play. Not too surprising considering its Trion, though considering the fact they do a lot of work in updates I'm still surprised they didn't go for a more freemium focused model. 


If you didn't try rift, particularly if you like the old school Everquest/WoW raiding, you probably should give this game a shot once it goes F2P. Its a game I really did enjoy a lot being an old WoW raider back when it didn't suck, and they have shown great potential with making amazing raids such as hammerknell (highly recomend watching videos of that place, its one of the best raids I've seen in an MMO). 


But then I digress before I sound too fanboi like. It isn't action combat so if your looking for that you won't find it, granted some speccs can be very difficult to pull off which can add into the feel of combat. Over-all SL has made some elements a bit more dragged out, but its not too bad considering PA (Alternate leveling like from EQ) gives you the feeling of progression. Only iffy thing I have is restricting the certain classes unless you have SL, considering the fact as a warrior Tempest is pretty much NEEDED on some fights else your going to be just flopping around.

I'm pretty sure SWTOR hasn't made that 200 million initial investment back yet.

I don't see TERA players complaining about not being able to get anywhere without the cash shop. Free games may be known as pay to win (and I don't mean in the way that people like to throw around the term without knowing the definition) but more games are slowly becoming smart about how to run a cash shop.

There goes the neighborhood. The F2P kiddies and gold spam bots will ruin another great game. Time to find another game to play.

Every MMORPG is AWESOME, until it's released!

I finally unsubbed like 3 days ago because I am short on money and there are a lot of F2P options out there.  It looks like I will be back playing Rift in just a few more days!  This is an absolutely fantastic game and what it lacks in making a strong first impression with its sort of generic looking world, it makes up for in polish and constant updates.  Trion is my favorite dev right now because of the speed of updates and how they listen to their customers so closely.

Here is what I am hoping for with F2P:

1)  Huge influx of players.

2)  More ganking.

3)  More people buying and selling.

4)  More people out questing.

Here is what will most likely come along for the ride:

1)  More chat trolling and anti-social F2P kiddies.

Don't forget worthless BRs who can't play a game worth shit most of the time, hell they couldn't save themselves from a wet paper bag in a game.

I also pray to the goddess that they ip block BRs (brasillians) from playing the game, or else it is going to go to hell, they are just parasites in f2p games that never, ever support it. In f2p games, most of the time when we end up with an idiot on the team its a BR over 80% of the time.

I also dislike how they don't say that people who own the game can get all wardrobe/role slots by using plat, they are going to be sold in the cash-shop, and they did say any you have will stay there, but I am worried for making new chars that I am going to get stuck buying these in the cash shop.

The Great items also better not allow faster entrance to raid content or else your going to piss alot of the old playerbase off, and that will defently feel pay2win to some.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

A. Proven right (if something bad happens)


B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

If you left because the leveling process was a bore, then you'll prob leave again.  I left for the same reason a week into launch and just resubbed only to play a couple hours and leave again

I don't expect to see any mmorpgs from Trion any time soon, if ever. If Arche Age fails we maybe reading about Trion closing it's doors within the next 2 years.



after playing the Defiance beta for days i must say you're absolutely right!

never got to try Rift cause at the time it came out i was pretty happy with WoW and GW1..

Woot finally a game I like is going f2p. Only reason I don't play anymore because I don't play games like these enough to justify a sub.
