I played Rift for about a month before they went F2P. It was a nice game, but I just couldn't get into it. So I went back to LOTRO.
But then the recent expansion for LOTRO kinda altered the game in a huge way, so I decided to give Rift another try. Only to be greeted with a message about the shard I last played currently being locked.
So I thought maybe the shard was busy or down. So I keep trying and keep getting the same message.
Then I do more digging and find out it's because the shard I played on no longer exists, it's been merged with another one. D'oh. So why couldn't they send an email about this? This was the first I had heard of it, and apparently my email address is just fine, when I found my characters I was sent an email with a code that I had to enter to unlock my inventory.
