This thread isn't about how cheap you are, it is about how Rift is developing.
I am so good, I backstabbed your face!
I have to agree, this is the only MMO I'd consider going back to. I regularly do consider going back to it. but.. I just hate the soul system. It would have been the best character creation/development system in the genre, if you picked your three souls at the beginning and were locked into it. You could respec, but only within those three souls.
The way it is though, I felt like my characters had no identity, and that's a gamebreaker for me.
When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.
Originally posted by Foomerang Finally, a dev that gets it. First expansion out the gate adds player housing and triples the land mass. Trion is making all the right decisions with this game and I gotta give them props.
the world expansion is exclusively for levels 50+
when RIFT launched, I felt the PVE content was lacking/redundant for leveling more than 1 character
the game needs more than 2 starting areas
Kickstarter: Stuff I'm supporting
Got to agree TRION is doing a great job with RIFT.
I had great time playing Rift,i loved classes beeing so flexible & specially enjoyed my Chloromancer^^
I somehow expected RIFT to become more dinamic than it actually is...I believe game is designed to be,but they encountered technical problems & had to step back...
I remember their first World Event with massive battles across the map...they were good in the idea but didn´t turn out how they expected & had to disable it....
Events after that has become more & more encorseted but still loads of fun & godies like mounts etc
I believe TRION will follow some GW2 ideas in Rift. They are already testing in beta realms some kind of PvP similar to GW2´s where you get leveled up to max level... only problem i see with that is that RIFT is too gear centered...don´t know how they will make that work...
Still very refreshing to see TRION trying all those different changes without fear... and delivering alternatives ways to play & level outside raiding (can´t stand raiding...it´s so 2011...........)
I do believe RIFT will become better & better with time. It already is.
I´ll be buying Storm Legion btw ,it´s a massive update that triples the size of the actual game. I´ll have to find some time out of GW2 but i guess i´ll be able in a couple of months^^
Developers must be supported when doing things right.
I love gaming you know, i support companies so i can keep on playing video games.
It is looking really good with:
A VAST NEW WORLD
Play FREE Sept. 14-16
Discover all the new faction changes and Instant Adventure in RIFT 1.10. Ride away on a new spectral mount!
There is NO miracle patch.
95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

Old-style gameplay = no futur
I think they last 1 or 2 years ..

Lol, ya ok.
Originally posted by ShimpoGenmu Originally posted by Krytycal Not to mention their next project, Defiance, is looking good too.
with firefall and planetside 2 coming this game has no chance.
but i admit for a newbie company they did good with rift and are probably the fastest company out there making content
if they keep up like this their next mmorpg will be bomb
I've played both extensively. PS2 is the superior game from a mechanic/FPS standpoint, but it comes with a big downside: no PvE. While Firefall comes with PvE, the gameplay/hit detection/performance is not very good right now. It's not a bad game per se, especially not considering Red 5 is a very small studio, but it's never going to be a big hit. It's going to be a niche game like Global Agenda.
If Trion does the same with Defiance as they did with Rift, I can see it being the first successful AAA MMOFPS with both PvE and PvP.

See ya next year, where?
Since there are no official numbers for Rift subscribers, I do not know what you base your surprising assumption on...
However, I tried Rift couple times and just could not get in. The only game I know of that has worse character animations is LOTRO and then Rift provides utter generic game play.
Those two mixed up together killed it for me...
Doubtful. Defiance looks good (but many games have). But if it plays well, and is updated in the same fashion Rifts is, it will do well.
Firefall has some good points, but their PvE milestone is months away (at least two, three or four is possible). Then they need to work the bugs out of it. So, thats another few months. Just for the next mile stone. So, we really aren't going to see the full game until well into 2013.
Planetside 2, is strictly PvP. So its not even targeting the same audience as Firefall and Defiance are. Not to mention it is SOE ...
I'm looking forwards to Defiance, but we will have to see how it plays.
Hmm, Hadn't thought of it in that regard.
Someone better start sending out notifications to all those subscribing customers.
HAHAHAHA!!!......OK, Ok, ok......
You better let Warcraft know as well...HAHAHA!! that its been dead for years by your logic (or lack of it)...HAHAHA!!!!
Their are some that do not understand the way players are and what makes a great game.
I don't believe the French

Ahh, I see, I thought he typo'd future. But that's the French spelling.
So, then according to the poster, the French require a newer style of game play.
At least we know Rift will do fine in the English speaking countries.
Originally posted by kostoslavWorst WoW clone ever created. If there was ever a game created only for money it is rift. It is, as I wrote many tomes here, soulless and plastic. Awful, unmaginative, badly written lore, terrible, boring quests. Unimaginative races and ugly character creator. I can always find at least one good thing in any game but not in Rift. U can feel more developer love in EA sports games.

Pretty true, though.
At least they seem to be a decent company, so...
