    Its funny, but why advertise for another game on your website?  Putting your competition's expansion into the minds of your players doesn't seem worth the joke to me.

    It prolly has more to deal with how that baby panda died at that zoo then MoP.

    Awful screenshot. It has something highlighted on the left bottom part of the screen. You can barely make anything of it due to the quality.

    "We're donating $1 to Pandas International for every pre-order on somethingsomething.com"

    Why try and make more out of it than it truly might be?

    Trion's marketing department cracks me up. Take a look at there fine print they have:

     

    Trion Worlds, Inc. will donate US$1.00 to Pandas International for each copy of Storm Legion that is pre-ordered through StormLegion.com, worldwide (excluding Alabama, Massachusetts, and South Carolina, even though we really wish they'd let us), between 12:00am PDT September 26, 2012 through 11:59pm PDT October 3, 2012, up to a maximum amount of US$10,000.00. Know why we have to do that? Maine. Weird, right? We don't know what they have against Pandas, or why $10,000 is a magical number, either. This contribution is not tax deductible, but it would be pretty awesome if it were. Pandas International is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization located at P.O. Box 620335, Littleton, Colorado 80162, whose mission is to ensure the preservation and propagation of the endangered Giant Panda.

    I think that's seppuku. Sudoku is a word/number game.

    I thought it was funny. Made me laugh when I saw it the other day.

    Caught my eye as well, very clever and gave me a good chuckle as well.

    Kinda reminds me of Pepsi taking shots at Coke and Coke never mentioning Pepsi..

    Good for Trion, I always thought Pepsi had a better sense of humor as well.

    I have 5 50s in rift, 3 of them in HK 1 in half ID gear.  I really wanna love the game, but It just gets old.  I REALLY wanna buy the expansion, but I'm just not convinced paying for a year is worth it when I know ill wanna take a break 3-4 months from now my first break lasted almost a year and I havent played in over a month despite my sub not expiring until december.

    The game is awesome you just run out of shit to do when its really only 4 classes souls are souls but its still the same class that and 1 starting area for each faciton.

    The whole premise of MoP is ridiculas and deserves to be made fun of. Too bad Rift is just a bad copy of WoW and really has no room to talk. Funny either way though.

    I guess you have no idea how small the MMO community really is.  Trion doesnt want to accidently remind someone about wow's expansion and lose a sale?  Are you serious?  There are just so many ways to make fun of you on this but I need to pull back or risk yet another warning.

    While "You're not in Azeroth anymore" made me groan, this is actually pretty amusing.  Bravo.

    Hehe, yeah, when I saw it, on this site as well, I had to laugh. Nice touch in their advertisement, hilarious and ingenious ^^

    They have a great PR/communications team, no doubt about it.

    Trion is epic!

    This is x1000 better than the "You are not in Azeroth anymore!"

    Probably buying te STORM Legion expansion....i´ll play it untill the "Raid or leave" part.

    They deserve support with the amazing work they have been doing in Rift!

    Hopefully Trion will keep on opening the End-Game content for those (like myself) that are simply burned out of their lives with traditional raiding.

    I know they have already implemented the soloing mini dungeons...but what they really need is to explore the dinamic nature of their game,and exploit that even further!

    Yeah I definately give their PR dept a thumbs up. I quit playing Rifts a while back. The raiding gets old with not much else to do. Maybe after I hear from some ppl playing the xpac I may consider another try. Was a really good game though.

    I got email from Trion also LOL. It's pretty hilarious, but actually I might buy it just to save a panda /grin.

    Not sure if I would play it though, got bored to death after 3 weeks.

    You do realize there are a LOT more people that play SWTOR than Rift, right?
