I may come off as a rift fan, to which I am, but does that mean my opinion is overexxagerated? To the ones who just "tried it out," probably. One of the main things I see that turns people off from Rift is the lack of high population at early game. It's to be expected when rift content is focused at the end level. "Trying it out" means you've only taken a small taste. That also means that those who's played it fully can tell you about a bigger experience. And that's what I'm going by.
As a player who has gone through a lot of the content: raided, pvped, built my own dimension, puged, socialized (as far as that term goes in mmo to the naysayers), quested, grinded, leveled, crafted, and even just standing around being derpy;
This game has really been a blast and still is. The raids are spectacular and often difficult yet exciting as class roles are pretty much versatile, leaving many options on who does what. Now, I will be honest and say there are min/max builds, but raid composition can have different classes doing roles uncommon to the typical stereotype. A rogue can dps, support, and even tank. Clerics can do all. Warriors have various tank and dps specs while mages can dps, support or heal.
All that holds anyone back from doing a different role is simply a lack of experience or gear to fit the desired role.
Storm legion has been out for a while now and believe me when I tell you that they have fixed many things since release. Quickly. Botting has been and is being addressed. Many bugs and glitches have been fixed. There are a still kinks I'm sure, but none that I have had a problem with. What is more amazing by the quick fixes however, is content THAT IS STILL BEING HAND OUT.
We've recently have a new 20 man raid that ties majorly to a leading figure that has been terrorizing Telara pre expansion. Regulos, the king of Death himself. The fight set in the Plane of death, which is amazing to me just as amazing as fighting Crucia in space. To have an expansion that allows you to defeat huge characters so early just alarms you that there is something even more amazing coming out later from the Dev team.
If you have never experienced the fast Trion content patches, updates, and hot fixes, then you would not understand how major and exciting it is to know that something is just around the corner, waiting to undermine the current astounding raids we have now. And even better yet, it is not another expansion or content you have to pay for, it's just a free update of content.
