TLDR: From your experience as a current or recent Rift player, how is the community of Rift?
How is pugging and grouping? What is the overall maturity level of the community, based on your experience?
I'm coming to have a greater appreciation of community. I want to play the game with the general community for a while before I join a guild. I play at Oceanic times, so if you have any information relevant to that, I would appreciate it, too.
I just unsubscribed to a game about 10 minutes ago and I'm looking for another one to take it's place. I'm really not bothered by much, but though this game is very crowded, I have never felt more alone in a game or had worse experiences -- recently. My guild left that game and moved on to another, which I also play from time to time. I don't want to name the game. This thread isn't about that.
I play TSW and I like the community I've played with there a lot , but the last couple of weeks the server has seemed very dead when I play (Oceanic times, Dragon faction, I like to pvp). I'm still in Valley of the Sun God. I also liked the community I met in Darkfall, though there has been a lot of negative stuff written about that game. Yes, there are jerks in every game, but I met some really nice people and great players there.
I play GW2, as well. But I have room for one sub game with a decent population. I have played Rift in the past, and while feeling it was a solid game, never got involved in a guild or met a lot of friends in game. I'm ready to revisit Rift, but I *think* I've matured as an mmorpg player to the point where I have an better appreciation of community.
