With the release of storm legion an already great game, becomes even greater. Currently it looks as if this already is a pve'rs dream, yes there may be a slight lack of pvp, but i am sure like most things it will be fixed in due time. There are a number of games out there that are currently competing with rift, however no game on the market has a better development team then this game has. I mean what game do we know that has pumped out this much content in such a short ammount of time.

 

In other words, they dont want you to get bored, and they are succesfully showing it. ALthough the subscribers arent as high as a number of other games, its not the biggest issue because the game itself is excellence and the people who play it know that. Therefore as seen rift should take the throne of mmorpg's, but of course the current mmo community is made up people who cant leave the comfort of there already played virtual homes. However the real question is, not whether rift can keep this vast content expansion up, they have already proven this, but instead whether or not they are able to keep the same amount of qaulity behind there game as they have been.

Well, in your opinion.

In MY opinion, it is the best MMO out there right now too. I'm having a blast.

However, expect contrary opinions, especially from GW2 fans.

They're still bitter about buying a Cadillac and getting a Pinto.

I am no longer responsible for anything my phone decides is correct in the way of word choices and punctuation.

I just couldn't get into Rift PvE.  I found the questing incredibly bland.  I dreaded going to the next quest hub.  DE's were OK.

WoW is right. Rift is so shamelessly similar to WoW I'm surprised they didn't get sued.

This expansion doesn't change the fact that the game has dated gameplay.

I'm with you. I came back multiple times thinking maybe it was just my class or my soul choices. It's such a great concept for a game, too, and the devs are amazing. Oh well, I'm glad those that enjoy it are having fun.

The best current MMO? I dont know where you get that idea from, but to each their own. Maybe I was too overly excited for Rift at launch; bought 2 games and subbed the 6 month deal and only ended up playing only 2months.....

I was in love with Rift and still repsect the game and its devs.  I've clocked in over 800 hours on that game.  Unforatnly real life  got busy and I just didn't have the time anymore to continue raiding and logging in to do the daily activites and seasonal events.  I wish it only the best.

I won't argue that Rift have a good developpement team, that is a fact. But I also think GW2 does as good if not even better than Rift. The game is only 2 months old and we've already had the Halloween event which was pretty great, and now another one which add some new permanent content. Sure there's a lot of stuff missing, like every MMO at release, but they are doing a great job. Thanks to their multiple teams all working on different stuff.

But saying its the best MMO, not IMO at least. I wasn't able to play this game since it was way too much like WoW. I'm not saying its not a good game for the people who like the WoW style gameplay and features but its just not my cup of tea anymore.

Well considering GW2 isn't two months old yet they have plenty of time to prove you wrong. Already they've had a new patch with new content every month since launch.

Rift is the best in development pushing out new content for sub only games.

GW2 is setting itself up to be the best for nonsub games. :)

It's a good game if you like wow style pve with a moor outdoorsy and grown up feel.
But.. I like pvp and I don't like raids, so nothing in rift for me.

A good development team wouldn't have copied WoW mechanics and style almost point for point, before slapping in a few surface gimmicks to make it seem unique. Nor would they have instancing. Instancing is a clear sign of bad game design most of the time.

Irrelevant. It's not because they copied the basics of WoW that they didn't a great job. Just look at SWTOR, same thing, but they failed comapred to Rift. And no, instancing isn't a bad game design at all. It not because you don't like it that it's bad. Instead of calling it bad, tell us exactly WHY you think its bad. I'm pretty sure you don't even know why you don't like it.

I could say the same about owPvP or sandbox games but I don't, because I know its not because I don't really like them that its a bad design.

Funny thing is the QQing seem to always come from the same people... people that will never be happy with anything. They praised games that did it right, and instead of playing these games, they come here and QQ about the things that are bad in their minds when there's a lot more people that either love it or don't really care because it doesn't change anything.

They have a rift gimmick lifted from Tabula Rasa. Every now and again some dudes show up randomly. Once you've done it about 4 times though it's pretty boring, and it doesn't ever actually impact the game world. But its pretty much the only difference between it and WoW.

If I wanted to play a themepark MMO whose mechanics have be done over n over n over again that has made people starved for something different I would play WoW before trying Rift.  Rift I didn't even last through the Beta as all it was is a WoW 2.0.  Rift is highly lackluster game as it doesn't do anything different from WoW.  At least with TSW and GW2 they tried different mechanics.

SL doesn't really push the quest hub thing. There are some quest givers in the new expansion, but there aren't 6 people huddling around a tent unable to move for themselves asking you to do extermination jobs one after the other. Most of the quests are now picked up on the fly and are auto turned in off the UI. Many quests are initiated simply by killing the 1st mob in a given location. Very well done!

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

I really dont think you can read? and gw 2 is far off the list due there lack of innovative content, it is far from the best casual game out there, holds absolutely nothing, to any of these other games. WoW was exceptionally but has hit the ground, both of them are therefore missing one thing that rift has, and that is the ability for potential and the way that potential is being exercised. In other words, wow was great but is getting worse and worse, gw 2 was never anything and rift was ok and is becomming more and more exceptional.

Gw 2 attempted something different, you have to give them credit for that, although what it attempted was really not as great as everyone anticipated it was better then nothing. i mean, the only thing the game has that is excellent is the crafting system, even then it can only keep you involved for so long, as opposed to rift which is constantly updating and adding in new things to do.
