I felt the exact same way. I played RIFT when it came out and just stopped playing. I don't know or remember why. I have tried EVERY other MMO I could find that looked halfway decent since Lineage II and I just couldn't find anything that held my interest. Warhammer did for the first few weeks but then everyone realized it was garbage. Tried aion...again liked it for the first couple weeks then realized it was the same old shit. Rift is the same old shit, but it's the same old fun shit, not the same old boring shit that you dread doing. And it's wrapped up in a pretty beautiful world with an infinite amount of things to be doing.

I was talking about the races themselves.  They are dull, boring and uninspired.  In a game like EQ/EQ2 and WoW, the races have ther own personality and culture.  While there is a little of that in Rift, its all so bland.  If you asked someone to write a paragraph or two describing the non visual aspects of the Bahmi, how many people would be able to come up with something?

good point.. I can close my eyes today and get a detailed visual of the races in EQ1 and WoW.... As for Rift.. Honestly I can't even name them, let alone discribe them...... LOL

Well i sure cant :P but i played WoW for almost 4 years game time. I play RIFT for 1 month now.

And yes, WoWs lore is rich as also is the one in LotRO, but i think of no reason why both these games should have no rich lore because LotRO has is base in Tolkiens world wich was written long long ago, and the warcraft one had also long years of development....

...RIFT is just new compared to those.

I am having fun playing this game, like i havent since WAR first couple of weeks. The game is very very solid, with a mix of "deja-vu"  designs and mechanics put together in a easy way, so easy that i see most people not even noticing they are there, there are tons of things to do and, in my opinion, its better to have that than a rich lore but broken game.

My 2 cents ofc.

When Trion with its approach would have made Lotro or WoW you would have heard the same complaint. The problem is not in the lore but lies in the company.

The sad truth is that Rift is the first mmorpg that bored me stiff after leveling of few characters to level cap. That never happened to me before.

It takes one to know one.

Following some of the recent launches of pretend to be mmorpgs, some having few of "mmo" and nothing of "rpg", 

I think Rift is the epitome of MMO without RPG

The worst race selection in any MMORPG by a rather enormous margin, and most of the races have no character to them at all.

The game world feels generic, and is designed to be absolutely crammed with content.  Trions content addition is mostly cramming even more content in the world.  Mobs every two feet give it a very unnatural feel.

The game was designed with a 'game starts at max level' philosophy, so the actual period of character progression is extremely small.  

Furthermore, the soul system makes your character have no real identity.

They constantly make changes to the game for the sake of gameplay but to the detriment of lore.  This is tricky, as some of the quality of life changes (mercenaries) do make a big difference and its tough to fault them.  But cross faction mailing is a bit unneccesary.  And then there is conquest, where instead of making a logical 3rd faction (planar invaders?) they made guardians and defiants temporary friends choosing among 3 new factions.  The whole thing doesnt make one lick of sense, and there was absolutely no reason why they couldnt have done something different and had 3 faction battlegrounds without being absolutely idiotic with lore.

 

Trion has consistently put gameplay and convenience (for both us and them) ahead of lore and immersion.  For some people this is a big plus.  If you dont care about a virtual world and just want to play a MMOG, Rift is one of the best options out there.  If you want a rich, immersive game world steer clear of Rift.

Funnily enough his "other option" in Vanguard is almost the complete polar opposite. All of the lore, immersion and incredible world with none of the quality of life features. 

I think it's fair to say that both games could do with a bit of what makes the other one work.
