all this talk about F2P can not be done right, one game you have all not mentioned is Rift , Rift does not tell you to pay for something to beat a boss rift does not every 5 mins blast you with a sub now ad.  while your only allowed 2 chars and 3 bag slots and no selling on AH ( so gold farmers cant sell) how ever ive been playing MMO's long enough to know a AH is a fairly new addition to them , in my first ones we did not need it to sell a simple WTS blah blah for x amount is what we did in chat and things sold so a AH block is not a game breaker , plat is not that hard to farm anymore so saving 1k of it to buy a rex isnt that tough.

 

also to those who would say what about the 4 souls you have to buy, well those 4 souls again are not game breakers they are not supper face melters any more then other soul combos you can make do. your not level capped your not instance raid blocked you can not pay to win ( ie top gear) since all the best gear is still earned. nothing is blocked that is needed to enjoy the game you can own any mount even the dimension's are not blocked and thats not even a major part of the game.

 

and to just piss off wow fan kids wow is a clone of dark age of camelot , it uses the exact same controls ( as does 85% of mmo's) and the graphics was not all cartoony , oh and wow coppied them for there glowing weapons ( as did many other games have)

 

trion has a bad habbit with patches ill give you that how ever they keep adding to it and not on a two year cycle

But I am thinking I might go give it another shot as F2P....

Checked Rift out today, well their cash shop, and the subscriber upgrades. I'm out. To me, all I see is the same old F2P cash grab.

 

you looked at the store and saw a cash grab , please explain

I made it to level 5 and deleted the game. I was looking for world class faction conflict...and its not there.the CONQUEST feature is just awful.

so you didnt even leave the starter zone and complain smh

 

 

not true i haven't payed anything in years yet i keep getting come back for so many days to check this out offers and when i do i get on set a skill then log off you don't need a sub

 

aww did the fail troll hit a nerve , there is no pay to win in eve plex gives tho who dont want to spend 15 bucks a month to play for free , sure you can spend all your real cash in buying them , the only game you will win at is the market game since everything in the game is just about player made , but but you can buy ships.

um sure you can buy ships but that's not the question, can you fly them? that is the question and the answer is no you cant , took me months to get the skill to fly my largest ship took friends of mine YEARS to fly what they have took even longer to fly the stealth class frigates then my battleship you have no clue how that game works and it shows so continue to be a fail troll trying to get something when there is nothing. 

 

plex does not advance any learning since skills are needed to fly, to shoot ,to use the market ,to make items ,to pretty much do anything in eve you need skills but skills are not sped up by killing or anything by fighting or crafting it takes real life time to get the skills in fact the last skill i was learning before i stopped was going to take 6 months of real life time to get the level out of it

pay to win is a term for F2P not a subbed game that does not have a in game store as far as i can see this grimx person is doing nothing but trying real hard at being a troll

 

Rift by far has the best F2p hands down , i have yet to see any f2p that doesnt have a catch to make you pay, some would argue the selling on the AH block for froobs is a catch , well as a player who has played mmo's since 2000 most of those game did not have a AH i made my money in chat and its not a game stopper ,

but but what about if i want it unlocked i have to pay cash to do it right,

no not really the deeps boxes drop and sell any where from 30 plat to a couple hundred if you luck out you can easily make enough plat to buy rex from players and unlock it that way , mounts can be bought for plat same speed as the ones they offer in the store the fancy mounts ie tigers lizards and what not match your fastest mount

as for the 2 char limit and the 3 bag slot limit the way the soul trees are set you may never need more then the two and the 3 bag slots buy or get from a guild the 28 slot bags and now that you can sell your grey items at any time from anywhere in the game world in the rift store space is not a issue

the only thing i cant stand to hear about rift well any game for that matter if there is swords and shields its a wow clone if you ask me wow was a clone of asherons call or ultima online or dark age of camelot i could go on , every game will always have something that can be found in another game

Sadly your comments are veryfing my thoughts about Rift. Souls areen't innovative, just are like trees in WoW or specializations like any other game; the dynamic events are the same like WAR's public quests; craft systems like wow and many others MMORPGs; rogue combos the same like WoW's rogue. There's nothing really exciting on this game for now.

sadly your a troll

Objective, honest and critical.

This article is not.

 

What cause he didn't agree with you? It was a good article displaying the pro's and con's of his beta experience.

UI responsiveness - At times is horrific, feels more clunky than not.  Best similarity would be WAR upon release.

Soul trees - Feel little more than WoWs talent tress, there is a bit more them I won't deny that, but to say this is anything new is stretching the truth.

Classes feel very 'samey'.

Rifts - If you have seen WARs PQ system the rifts will feel very simialr.  Very.

Immersion - You are lead by the hand from quest hub 1 to 2 to 3.  Never once did I feel like I was in a living world, though I did think I was in a singleplayer game several times.  The quest system feels even more linear and on the rails than WoWs and that is an achievement.  Never once did I forget I was playing a game, and an eerily familiar one despite the new locales and different graphics.

 

Some people will love the game, good for them and I hope that the game does well, but this whole article felt like it was hyping and selling the game rather than previewing it.

Now some things may change before release, but as things are improved my opinion will change, I won't smudge the truth in the faith that it will be all sorted by release.

-Delete this post if you feel it infringes on the NDA-

the ui did feel clunky then beter next beta

 

the classes only feel the same if you pick souls that are similar then ya it would feel "samey" but then again they are based off the same "arch type" so I personaly would expect them to be "samey" as you put it but with different play styles

take for instance a shaman vrs warden a shaman is a DPS cleric with group buffs while the warden is the healing cleric class

 

immerersion ?? you ppl who want more WTF you want a rubber body suit that gives you that special feeling in teh naughty spots??? being able to make your own  character that can have skills from multiple souls , thats my immersion , and yes they are giving us more points to be able to fully go with one souls and have fun with other souls.

that alone is something that reminds me of the days i played Asherons Call where YOU picked your skills YOU made your own character that you could play better then anyone . and why because YOU built up the skills not some cookie cutter like warcrap

rifts are nothing like warhammer PQ 1st off the PQ never left its spot to destroy the land side, 2nd with the little show of the zone invasion system it blew me away NO game I have ever played has anything like that where depending on the ammount of players will the game not a dev set in motion a event that have world bosses with more then half a million hp!!

Seen a post on here that says the graphics look like warcrap .. let me clear my throut HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

um cartoon graphics vrs high def models ya your right i can see how its the same (NOT!)

right now we only have had the first 20 levels and each beta something else is unlocked whats to come in beta 3 im not sure but i do know this after  11 years online ive never played a game wher ethe DEVS LISTEN to the player base

for example we said we didnt like having to wait to have the 3 souls to ge thte two we want so now all souls will be up for grabs when you get into game at lvl 1

 

it seems to me that most of you who talk this game down are wow players who baught cataclysm dont take it out on great games that your Holy Warcrap screwed up

 

http://www.riftpodcast.com/podcast/2010/12/22/nda-free-podcast-scott-hartsman-alyvian-abigale-beta-gameplay.html

you can listen to this pod cast to confirm the event was not DEV driven more like they took teh lock off to let it out and it ran on its own

The Death Bringers are reforming 3 of the original death bringers from the asheron call days are set to start it up again in rift  http://thedeathbringers.guildlaunch.com

rift for the win!

the White rabbit of asherons call that is the most horrific mob to face  the white rabbit smites you!

I just started playing this game last month and Im hooked , the crafting is not that complicated , and as for wanting xp while chopping this isn't warcraft, it takes little skill to chop a tree down ,turning logs into broads takes skill and that's why you get xp for making the boards and not gathering logs, the craft system here also allows for teching of armor , from a gem socket to place gems to change the armors stats to one liking or to set specific techs on them for a collective set of stats.

graphics wise from my point of view from playing so many different mmo's from all over the world , graphics doesn't make a game or break it, its how fun the game is , and this reminds me of the day long past where its a giant sandbox with no set path that i have to take i can do what ever i want when i want.

as for skill to play this game yes you will need it, since there is no mana to speak of to use for spells or attacks one must learn the skill cool downs and pace ones self this is not to say that the combat is lame, as a dragon i melee so i got to time my auto attacks with my skill attacks as not to leave me with just auto going, the cool downs are not that bad to where you are unable to fight, as a biped this game is truly a multi classers dream i got a cleric/mage he has his ability to heal and attack with two handed weapons with attack skills something a mage would normally not have and have powerful spells the cleric wouldn't have either.

 

The ability to own homes is a lost thing in most mmo's while the game at this point doesn't allow for loot or trophies to be hung, does not mean the homes have no use but to be there, you can have shops set up if you a crafter and have your own cosigner, or if you like a warehouse build lots of storage silos and craft machines , there are many different ways to design you plot with many races homes and buildings to chose from, dragons get  something similar they get a lair with many different types of rooms to build from storage silos to grand halls with either lava or water flowing through depending on your fancy

 

so far the community has been great , it is really nice to get in a game with others and have them actually be friendly and helpful , those two things right there are lacking in most of the "any kid who can press a button can  play this" mmo's it is very refreshing to be able to get in a game like that and not have to listen to thousands of kids wanting gold or hand out.

the only down side to all of this is that this is a hidden gem of a game while might need a lil more polish for most to those of us who need more from a game then pretty pictures and look for the communities that are full of like minded players this is the game to come try out , you never know what things are like till you give it a go for your self

im using the word "clone" just like trolls do as unrelated to the topic as can be, ppl throw the word clone around like its water and every thing is on fire , and for you to quote all i said im sorry if i up set you by callin out the wowfanboys but 9 times out of 10 it just some random wow player off to play something that looks like wow or has something in common with wow a wow clone even tho the word clone means and exact copy of a original so for anything to be a wow clone it would have to be a EXACT match to wow , most ppl would have taken what i said as my personal opinion with sarcasm in it

as someone who has been playing this game for a few weeks now and still keep getting chars to 10 and go ok what else do i want to play since i enjoy all the classes so far , yes i know wow 10 right but since im a flexabel player able to do any class better then most  i just cant pick one yet since i like i said i enjoy all the classes .  yes the quests are your basic go here get this and yes the FoD i hear sucks badly (wouldnt know havent gone pvp yet). as for the strain of the cash shop its insane right now way over board on the pricing 20 buck for 6 more slots for your bag...

 

but with that said all items that are on the CS are in game able to be quested for just dont expect it to be done in a few hours or a day maybe two or more depending on what it is , like for instance the bag that has 6 more slots ive notice ppl complaining about killing at least 600 mites and getting only 1 of the 3 mite shells while other seem to get them faster , not sure what the % rate would be on it just seams to be very very high.

 

as for a wow clone ive been around long enough in the mmo community to see wow had cloned other games and threw on a easy color by numbers paint job ( yes i know it was to keep system req down) other games had skill trees other games had two sides , so wowfanboys im sorry to say wow is a clone of many games just all threw in the same pot oh and if you want to know if i played yes i did for 5 years till my last friend stopped and so did i didnt even do any raids anymore just gave a helpin hand to others since wow made raiding something that kills friendships . so when i do hit end game here i hope the daily quest id have to do to be able to get in raid instances are worth it and dont blow up guilds and friends left and right

Nothing will ever beat Age of Conan in terms of infuriating me. If Funcom did the Blizzard thing and released it when it was ready, it could have actually competed with WoW.

wow was no where near ready when it launched constant crashes zone crashes instance crashes on and on not to mention the damn grind im sick of grinds in mmo's to me that is the one that sets me off more then anything its the devs way of being lazy and the 2nd thing is to compare every thing to wow ,  the thing they got right is the natrual desire of humans to have the best thigns , and since you need the best gear to be the best you will grind away to the point of over playing and ignoring things in RL.

and another thing about blizzard being a lazy game company is thier expan packs TBC wow insteed of new classes they gave us all the same classes yay  how  lame is that , when we heard TBC was comeing with two new classes i was like ahh snaps they need to give the horde a death knight ( my idea was like a pally but less heals more evil) but wh3en we heard its just they gave us two new races that one could be a pally (horde) and shaman (ally)  alot of us where very pist off since now there was nothing that seperated us as factions cookie cutter classes god i hate those

then WotLK came out and every one that has a 55 got a DK ( yes i played one too) they where fun as hell yes they pwned pve was soloing 5 player quests with ease , but thats as far as i could go no raid evey one of them had more then enough dks in  them, so went back to the mains and there it was again be this generic version of every other mage or shamman with either all ice or resto since even if you where good at dps no one wanted you unless you where exactly how they say you should be

that i blame on the fact you have no control over basic stats other then getting gear, and the lack of creativity in the class trees once they went to a aoe kill pattern ( like found in DaoC stacking nukes and every class just about had one just like wow has now) you have to be ice since flame strike does nothing compared to a blizzard's DoT and arcane explosion sucks due to a world cooldown timer you cant get it to pop off as fast as ice would either , so your forced intoa  class or play style you may not like.

now i hear about a new expack for wow and they are giving goblins to horde and some other race that i dont care about for ally , goblins have been used in every warcraft RTS , and when my friends where talking about wow i was like sweet i want to be a goblin.. no thay dont have those in , but so many years later and they now have the idea to put it in , ya no thanks im done i quit wow im sick on the wash rinse repete expan packs.

another poster wrote about asherons call that was my first mmo and i guess i was spoiled by turbine with there live update team that gave us new and exciting stuff to do on a monthly basis , sure there was alot of lvls gain in that game but it never flet like a grind, it felt like iw as working to something sinc ei was able to say what ,where and how much points i want to put into my stats , also the ammount of repeteable quests with reasonable timers on it


another poster wrote warhammer should be up thier, i played that and enjoyed it what killed it for me was the player base , to many wanted a wow game and when they got thier and found it nothing like wow they left , so there was hardly anyone to play with , i belive the killer of that game is the SC's they are done very poorly as in they give more xp then open RVR which is what i wanted the first two tiers was almost a joke to go and rvr in , since everyone and thier mom was in scenarios.

while yes some of the keep RVR dynamics where a joke and messed up to the point of exploitation it was still more fun then running a raid and waiting for your .5dkp to come from some ones gear that they won for some reason no matter how many raids i was in nothing i ever needed droped untill 4 to 5 weeks has passesd since i did get something, the keep drops was a nice change i felt i had a better chance, but then i won a  few bags and got the same damn item over n over no dev had the thought of putting in a code line thats say if  you have x item then these x items are avail from bag.

i have played ungodly ammounts of mmo's from closed to open betas to retail and what ive seen is a trend a trend of lazy devs doing as little as they can to make that 15$ a month from each player and throwing in the good stuff as a after thought but then its only one or two good things you pay another 40 bucks for in a expan pack, with the times we  are going thru and money is getting tighter for some families when will the bigger companys stop gougeing the player base for jokes of expan packs that really only add a few things where are the free updates anymore

i didnt have to pay more then 15 bucks till  AC:DM came out but that gave a lot more things to do and wasnt that costly

 

side note yes i have poor ghrammer and typing so to late flamers i dissed myself  , and to those that can over look those small errors i hope my statements ring true to you as they do me

 

2nd side note To any game maker or dev that may read this stop the damn grinds ( some grind is enevatable ) that make us go insane and give us grey hair , give us a world open to explore and the freedom to enhance our chars  they way we want to and not the cookie cutter molds that are far to rampant in games today
