    If the sub for this game was less then 10 dollars I would give it a go again. When I left the game it was not worth my money because of  bad crafting and lack of choices on my ways to level with my alts. Let alone it was another quest hub based game that I have grown tired of.

    I am sat here eagerly waiting for the EU servers to come back up. This is gunna be great.

    If $5 a month affects whether or not you play a game then you have bigger money issues than worrying about MMO subs. That's the price of a bloody burger.

    To be fair this looks very good indeed, i would even go as far to say for me personally, a lot better than GW2.

    If you want to throw money at this game have at it, but I happen to agree with him, not worth a $15 subscription.  It is a question of value here, not money.

    You complain but I'm currently subbed to it for less than 9 a month.  Yes, it's an annual sub but that meets my requirements.  I support Trion even if I don't necessarily constantly play this game.

    I made a mistake on two games with a long term subs. LOTRO (lifeime) and Wow ( a year) for the free diablo 3. I decided that from now on I will pass on any long term subs.

    i also agree i cancelled my preorder after playing the beta and 1.11 , this game just isnt worth a sub any longer to me as it never changes and is always more of the same .  Games evolve and are exciting , not rift unless you count carnage quests and dimesions , which the later is cool and fun but just a mini game .  WOW released a terrible lazy expansion and now Rift removes features like conquest and only adds one new warfront forcing you to quest to level and their quest system is just atrocious and I cannot bring myself to grind to 60 with that horrible design any longer. While Storm Legion is def much more polish and quality than mists of pandaria , its still just more of the same.
  • KhebelnKhebeln BelfastPosts: 727Member Uncommon

    Conquest is only Temporarly off till new players reach lv cap. Out of all the Rift zones i loved Ember issle the most as it was the least linear and rail based zone. Ember Isle was more of a Sandbox like zone.

    Changes to souls are nothig new as they change those things almost every patch. But obviously its more drasting with new expansion and souls as they had to balance things out.

    Personaly im not really interested in pvp in Rift, and rift never was primarly focused on that to begin with.

    In other words if you loook for pve fun you will find more than you where barganing for, but if you want pvp you might be disipointed.

    Im happy they focused on pve tho.

    Sssh.. Don't mention money, I already crossed that bridge and was met with fierce very fierce resistance (including one female spokesperson for mmorpg.com).. I tend to agree about value, but some people feel that it's always a rich or poor thing..

    Even if I was a millionaiire, I would not pay over $1.02 for a McDouble off of the value menu at McD's.. Even if they tried to sell it to me for only 25 cents more, because to me, a McDouble is only worth $1.02..

    Not saying that this will not prove worthy, but at this time, i prefer to remain on the sidelines watching instead.. Good luck to Trion though..

    Hehe, i know what you mean. Problem is big studios are not willing to risk to try anything new. And small projects looke like 10 year old games.

    One thing i learned only games that are allowed to have pvp and pve are Sandbox.

    If you play themepark, they should either focus on one or the other, or you will get the opposite effect and huge amount of haters that are not satisfied becasue the game went only half the way towards what they want.

    In other words, dont try to make games for everyone. Make games for specific group of players.

    But as long as sales will be more important than player retention this wont change much.

    My sub isn't $15 a month, I have year long founders pricing still :)  Worth every penny!

     

    I have 3 subscriptions to Rift and WoW.  My total per month is under $60...Which is still cheaper than going to the movies once lol

    nice...

     

    i will w8 a bit till they release the 1st patch after release and maybe a bit more - i think towards the end of this year (very soon now) they will bring back the one year price of 100$ and then it will be worth it (maybe even make it a special price with the new expansion)....

    Just my 2 cents...

    You just missed that boat. 12 month sub with free expansion has been available for ages and ended today.

  • FoomerangFoomerang Portland, ORPosts: 5,564Member Uncommon

    I cant understand how someone will drop 60 bucks on a game, play it for a month or two and say they got their moneys worth. Then turn around and say they wont pay 15 bucks a month for a game that costs 5 bucks and the first month free. By the time youd get to the 60 dollar point, you would be starting your 5th month of playtime.

    Anyway, on topic. I cant wait to get home and dive into this xpac. I may even do a review a month or so from now. Already got it downloaded before i left for work today hehe

  • ereyethirnereyethirn KaiapoiPosts: 79Member
    Is trion always going to be terrible at making trailers? Every trailer I have seen for rift has been terrible! Don't get me wrong, I love rift its an amazing game, however everytime they release another shitty trailer like this it makes me want to play rift less!
  • BadaboomBadaboom Moose Jaw, SKPosts: 2,380Member
    This sounds like something that the people who are currently playing Rift will enjoy.  When I played the trial though, I had the biggest "game on rails" feeling than any other MMO that I have ever played.

    $15.00 a month is a small fee compared to the time you can play. If you think the game sucks, why are you even posting. If any person on this site (or any) needs to scrap money together for a MMO, you need to sell your computer. Because boys and girls, PC gaming isn't for  poor folks.
