I like RIFT a lot. I like most of its content but i quit playing only because of the low performance of the client. Its truly unacceptable.

As for the OP's question, imo yes, it is dying.

I like Rift a lot. The combat, for the style, is pretty fun and the character build system is really cool. However, I'm not a raider and they seem really focused on raiders making that core to the game experience. After a while playing the game I sort of lose interest in trying to figure out how to make progression and character development satisfying outside of raiding.

There must be enough raiders to fund the game though or it would be stupid of them to focus on that.

Like others have said, going f2p doesn't fix the problems that caused it to go f2p in the first place, just gives the game a stay of execution.

Actually, I would rather have WoW die instead.  They make it worse with each update and expansion.

RIFT was already dead before Free to play. The F2P got them some players but as soon as they saw and understood Trions agenda, they left.

 

I was one of them.

On the other hand, there aren't many games better than RIFT right now.

I think that mmo's a decade ago had a big step ahead, but now they are stuck. Something must happen to take genre some steps forward again.

I don't know if I would go as far as to say that it's "dying", however I can see a large drop in my shards population now that the f2p buzz has worn off. It's a shame really because it offers a lot of really great ideas, but for some reason player retention is still a problem.

As long they dont fix client performance the game will dying. I m not saying that if the performance was better RIFT would have millions of players, but i m sure it would have many times more than the current player base.

Have to say that during the holiday summer season the game was allot more populated then when I jump on at sort of off hours. Weekends also work best if you are looking for more pop. playing.

Kinda been the thing with almost any MMO/rpg.

For now I am sticking with it. Having fun, seeing there is more depth to the game then I thought. Not sure if the raid comment by Torvaldr was meant towards endgame. So far my 2 main characters 35/36 just have done a few raids but there is allot more to do for me ingame.

Gameplay is nothing new, graphics are not stunning and the setting and plot are uninspired. I'm surprised it survived this long. And I didn't even get the hype when it came out.

But that's just my opinion.

Haven't played in around 2 weeks but the game always seems very populated to me.

Probably because it's the most well made WoW clone out of all of them.

 

I can never get into it personally, everything feels soulless and corporate driven. It feels like a bunch of smart executives designed this game, as opposed to actual gamers.

This is exactly how I am with most any game these days. I've done the raiding back in WoW a few years ago and it was fun for a while, but I'm done with it. Rift does a lot of things right with the raiding endgame model, but I believe the market is full up on those types of games. I fear that however Rift goes, so shall Trion go. I don't believe Defiance or ArcheAge are going to pull Trion out of the fire.  

 

There are a lot of good things about Rift (like the flexibility of the soul system) and if I were into raiding, I would probably play it. But I think Storm Legion, as anticipated as it was, was a kind of step back into old school grind that turned a lot of people off. That is just not going to fly in today's market. Maybe Trion was thinking it would appeal to the Asian market or something.

 

WoW will be the flagship mmorpg for this raiding endgame till it is replaced by something better (meaning with modern combat) -- maybe WildStar? FFXIV is not going to be that game, though they will probably keep a small hardcore group who love FF. 

 

Hopefully TESO will give us something different (us being people who don't want a raid-or-die endgame). I am guardedly optimistic.

Rift has many issues, but i'm pretty sure that it's not dieding. Comparing to my WoW server, Zaviel is alive and kicking:

  • AH is very active
  • You can always find pug raids for weeklies 
  • and for FT/EE/TotDQ
  • you can easily pug for DDR

well that's more than enough for an active server.

It can't be said enough: they named their game after a gameplay feature.

That's pretty much admitting that your setting and plot have absolutely nothing going on for them.

Honestly, though; it can be a good thing too. The devs of The Exiled Realm of Arborea didn't take the hint and had to pay for it. With a name like that, they should have just went with Good MMO Combat: The Game.

At least Rifts subtitle can(should) be omitted.

Writing this post made me yawn uncontrollably.

I played it at launch and probably longer then I should of only because little else was out.  However it always felt mediocre to me and I knew I wouldnt stick with it.  I had higher expectations of the RIFTS themselves but that turned out to be a big disappointment

pretty much sums up my experience as well but I didn't stick with it as long.

I have played rift and wow and im not a big fan of either game, but rift is just a cheaper version of wow in every sense. I wish rift was actually about rifts and not raids like it was initially supposed to be.

I play rift a lot and I just cant see the similarities with WOW.

 

Sorry but in wow you cant talk to your enemies...alliance and horde are forever locked form each other.

You can talk to each other in RIFT and even join and play together.

 

Wow has a new expansion that lets you now automatically be bale to level any character you want to maximum level and get free gear with it....no play required.  In fact they are going to offer this as something you can buy from wow's cash shop....that is the ultimate PAY to Win example....might as well just go play Progress quest with stuff like that.  I understand Sony is thinking about having this same sort of thing for Everquest as well.

Cant do that with rift.

 

In addition wow requires a subscription...you can try it for free up to level 20 but have everything nerfed on you....and then you have to pay to play after that.  Sooo....that's pay to win...sorry to say.

 

But Rift you can play for free up to any levels and get free items every day.  Their cash shop doesn't have all items from the game listed but you can favorite items you find form vendors to have them available later.  And be able to buy things for planarite and things the cash shop only sells for real cash.

 

So anywise aside form both being fantasy games...with wow being a total rip off copy of warhammer fantasy from games work shop(they even mimic the same accents on the orks how sad is that?)...I am just not seeing a clone of wow.

Maybe if Rift added some kung fu pandas or an ork who yells at you in tons of cuscnes about how great he is....and then proceed to make the game a grind fest of killing wolves to get fangs and also add invisible walls all over...cant forget those, then it might be close to a wow clone.

 

Also rift hasn't been around 2 years yet...so seeing the oldest posts form players talking like they played a long while back when they only actually played a month before they posted is kind of humorous.
