OP  2/22/11 12:41:08 AM#1

Played the last beta for 15 hours. Soul system is quite neat, yes. Graphics are decent. Character models are good, with lacklustre character customization. UI is a copy of WoW (which is okay, why fix what isn't broke and all that, I get it) Questing is nothing special and nothing new. I don't understand the gross hype. This game is the very definition of a WoW clone with a new coat of paint, yet people claim it as a "WoW killer" The lack of originality is SO dissappointing! Why can't developers use a little creativity and brainpower and get away from "raid all day for gear" end-game and offer something more unique, offer something more compelling in general?

This is a very original post. I applaud you on your creativity and uniqueness of view. On the other hand, it's a shame you didn't enjoy the game. I hope you're able to find one more to your liking.

There's alot of people out there that are very excited about a high quality High Fantasy game that doesn't have Motorcycle mounts in it...

- 143 possible character build combinations.

- Dynamic, open world content delivery system including raids.

- High quality instanced pvp (that does not detract from the open world experience at all) and dungeon content.

- High quality open world player vs player.

- High degree of polish.

- Social environment that is being openly embraced by players.

- A devoted team of skilled developers that are dedicated to listening to the players, and even before the game has launched have managed to prove themselves time and time again through pristine communication between themselves and the playerbase/fanbase on every front.

Those are my main reasons, I originally disliked the game myself for the first few betas. However, after participating in Beta 4/5/6/7 I have become a massive fan. I personally think that the game appeals to old school gamers because it really seems to nurture that social aspect of gameplay that many of us absolutely adored in our original games.

People are forming bonds again with there fellow players, an aspect of play that has honestly died down alot over the last few years, and that alone is enough to excite many individuals. As it should, because that is truly what these games are all about, forming friendships with people to overcome challenges.

this is just going to get locked.

@ OP: We know.

@ Rom: We know.

@ Players: Please pay. All negative threads bundels on one thread and the rest of the discussions deleted (locked).

Everyone needs to learn the lessons of the past I guess.

:))

.. My bet: it won't work either...

It's zombie horses, no doubt about it. Beating won't help, they just keep rising and they want to suck away your brain.

My advice: only burning helps or cutting off its head.

high fantasy?? have you played defiant side or read about them?

and motor cycle is crafted by engineers, so having that skill definitely suits creation of machines.

Guardians are more high fantasy. Defiants are steampunk. They do have mechanical horses I believe. Thing is, there is steampunk and there is going too far. It's all a matter of taste.

Wait that's why.  The horses aren't zombie horses that we are beating, they are mechanical horses to beat!  Thus it shall never stop!

yes,....this is much better

Nothing says high-quality fantasy like a double-headed-turtle mount.

Collector's editions are scams.

Well if so many people seemingly made the same type of post then maybe there is something to it no?

I played two days of the six day beta, I was rather impressed with rift in general, with two exceptions, a rift opened right on my only quest giver's location (apperntly quite a common occurance) five levels above me, and I shouldn't have to try to organize a raid to turn in a quest, which we ended up doing and failing miserably.

The second for as dynamic as the class system is supposed to be, by rewarding players more for a master dump into one tree, basicly feels like wasted potential. 

I don't feel that rift is really a WoW Clone, just the same way as runes of magic isn't a clone of every half decent gimic in every other MMORPG. 

The second part was the six day beta.

Really? Are these people so ready to get financialy destroyed by their compettition and poor marketing that they're going to skip some of the most cruicial time for testing, and building a player base?

The comunity was great, and the graphics were better than my computer, what sound i could get working was tolelrable. The only reason these factors played out that way is because an alpha comunity is the upper eschelon of players. I don't expect that to last either.

Everyone will have a min / max build 2 weeks after release. Not to mention the fact that many souls have exact copies of abilities.

You think there's 100 ways to do DPS? I have news for you, there's not. There's 1 right way and 99 wrong ways.

Have fun seeing your class get nerfed every week because the developers need to retune 300 combinations. Hey!..it already happened in beta.

Not entirely true. The best damage build available is not the best PvP build available. Different builds for different situations will be the flavour of the game, facilitated of course with the amount of roles (four in total).
