I know the reason but you probably won't like it.
Because rift is yet another WoW clone that is worse in almost every way. That's not to say WoW is the best game ever it's just better then Rift.

Funny, because to me Rift felt more like some sort of Warhammer Online copy, the graphics engine that is. That made me look further.

Eh, Rift may be better than WoW, but the answer is correct anyway. Rift is a WoW clone, and themepark design does not retain players.
World of Warcraft is the original creation of God. Real Life is in fact a WoW clone.
For me there where 4 problems (this doesnt cover anything in the expansion).
1. Rifts are a gimic, a good one, but not enough to distract from the generic quests.
2. Combat is dull, and makes taking on Rift-zergs tedious, when with a TERA style action system they could have been a bit of fun.
3. Dullest character design ever, 2 new races in the expansion would have made some of us very happy.
4. It doesnt have enough of its own character, which is also a problem for mmos coming out like TESO.
It is worth playing, but not subbing to.

Oddly enough it seems that way, EU servers have the highest pop I've seen in 3 yrs, even I went back after swearing MoP wouldn't be enough.
After playing both of these and some others I'm going to have to disagree.
Rift is frankly better, but not as casual friendly which is why I'm not playing it right now, since I don't have time for that at this stage.
A clone it may be, but its a decent one, and is better than the direction blizzard is currently headed in.
I definitely agree with the guy above, it may be a wow clone, but every aspect EXCEPT PvP is better in Rift imo. Im currently playing, i just dislike the queue times. I see players ALL OVER THE PLACE, i never have any problem running to a rift, and hopping in a group immediately.
Also, since the release of Storm Legion, Meridian and Santum are pretty empty as most people hang out in Tempest Bay now.
