Hey guys thinkin of pre-ordering after work this evening. How are the server loads? How were they through the night and wee hrs of the morning? Can't wait to start playing but those sever queues...OUCH! Should I wait till release or start tonight? How long is the download? Or maybe it might be better like next week or 2?

First of all, I play on EU.

The download went pretty fast in my case, then again I got a 100Mbps fiber connection.

The queues were pretty harsh on the PvP servers last night (hours I heard), but if you plan on playing on a PvE server I only got 5-10 min queues and no queue this morning. 

The most annoying thing was the overcrowded starting zone which made questing quite a chore. Everyone was camping the same mobs/loot objects, as well as taking all the artifacts and gathering nodes. But people will move on to higher level areas soon so that shouldn't be a problem anymore (which should make the queue problems better as well, they weren't allowing any more people on until the starting zone was less crowded)

So imo if you really can't wait to start playing just go ahead and preorder.

See you in Telara ^^

I had a 1-2 hour wait for Faeblight PvE-RP... but once in it was AWESOME fun. :)

 

I only got to level 10 but took part in an epic invasion event. Got a purple token reward thingy, had a brilliant time. That was Oceanic evening so pretty late for US players.

No lag nor bugs nor crashes so far on whitefall, althought queueuing time is a major problem.

Well i must say smoother then I expected , no lag worst irritation was the starter zone looking for the 6 level 1 mobs to kill.

(luckily no longer then 5 min)  anyway just stay at the entrance and kill them as they go for the guards :P .

Aside from 8 hour gaming  the stupid 45 min failed update (had to disable firewall and antivirus for it to download)

All in All very smooth , and infact suprising on me that i played a fantasy game this long .

 

Anyway the highlight for me that suprised me was how well the soul system is build.

And how class combo works even if you make a totally not recommended class combination .

Well if you want easy leveling a pet class really helps , they can take a good amount of beating , and do little damage.

So they tank for you the mobs , while you press the buttons to kill it .

 

All in all i found the game refreshingly same as wow but beter , cause it almost like wow classic but improved .

The rifts are a bit hard to solo , found taking on red mobs quite challenging for a none healing class.

I asked God for a bike, but God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

Had a great time playing! If you are playing on the N.A. servers prepare for queues on all of them. Expect to wait 30mins to 2 hours in prime time, more for popular servers.

If you're EU, avoid Whitefall (PvP). That server was high at 5am GMT when everything else was low. I predict it will be full every other normal time of the day. Just hoping for smaller than 2hrs queue (Had to wait 10hrs yesterday due to the auto disconnect bah).

Thanks guys ..I'm pretty hyped over this game. Blizzard better beware. I am thinking this game might ... just might have a chance of toppling the gorilla or at least bringing him to his knees! :)

All the US servers were full last night and had 1 or more hour que. Trion added like 23 servers yesterday and when i stopped around 12pm EST, they were still full except maybe 6 that were High population. I think they did a wonderful job , people were complaining about server que but i played pretty much all MMO at launch and Rift was very good performance wise as well as how they handle everything. The only bad thing i could say is that they should've created more starting zones because everyone was doing the same quests.

 

The download is fast, took me about an hour and a half..

Never argue with idiots. They just bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

2/25/11 5:49:23 AM#10

I'm loving it.

It's running smooth. Looks great. So many things to do I often have trouble prioritizing.

I have no complaints so far.

Oh yeah my DVD player is fried on my computer so would have to dl the whole game and can't seem to do that without first having a new account and logging in.. Wondering if I can actually download the game from the rift site after headstart is over. My main concern for pre-ordering...

Hence why they've added so many new servers.  I suspect they'll be upping the server capacity once the initial rush is partially out of the starting zones.  Of course, we'll see what Prime Time today holds.

 People still saying WOW will be toppled.  Rift gets boring fast, we ll see in a few months what the posts will be like.

 My prediction is 3 million by that time. Time will tell I guess...

The hype machine is running just like Blizzard's machine ran back in 2004 only better!

You know everyone who is and ever played WoW will be checking this game out. And current WoW players actually hate the state of WoW now rather they will admit it or not. They are so starved for a new game that they will play anything half worth a shit and it looks like RIFT is the only polished AAA title that just might aleviate that need.

 Trion has a great game on their hands. I love it and will be in Rift a long time. However, don't think of Rift as some kind of WOW killer, not going to happen. The only one that can take WOW down is Blizzard itself. WOW is a great game I spent 6 years and had great fun, wonderful memories, and got my money worth. Why do so many want to see WOW die. If WOW did not have it's success Rift would not exist.

 I don't really expect this to be a "WoW killer" but I myself have really grown to dislike What WoW has done to it's own game. It baffles the hell out of me as to why so many are still playing it (myself included) prob cause there simply isn't anything better out there that , shallow as it is, is just so cool to play. But honestly WoW is no longer a deep and involving fantasy world anymore. They have dumbed down so much of what used to be a good complex world. WoW is only a lobby game now where all ??millions of people are queued for dungeons the whole time they are logged in. There is no persistent world anymore. I can't stand lvling up by killing those ridiculous mobs or questing outside dungeons anymore. One extreme to the other extreme with no in between. Either hunt and quests mobs that are so ridiculously easy a 2 yr old can do them or full groups doing heroic dungeons @ 85 extreme hard mode. I guess middle ground here would just be full groups in regular dungeons with no chat whatsoever between party members. Like I said it baffles my mind .....The gaming community is so starved for any half assed decent game right now that they will play RIFT simply because there is nothing better out there. Same as WoW. Think about it...

My Download of Rift ran at my connection speed cap (1.5 megs a second on my 150mbps connect) and the full 8 gigs was on my HD in under 2 hours.  I didn't time it.

The servers are rock solid, and while they're crowded Trion has already brought 23 additional servers online and I believe they're going to keep doing this as many servers have excessive queues.  That said, finding a server without a massive queue isn't that hard and if you aren't trying to hop on a server with your buddies / guildies you'll have no issue playing the game.

No lag, amazing mmo graphics & fluid combat make this a game you won't want to miss.  I played 11 hours straight yesterday and am taking a 1/2 day today to go beat that feat tonight!
