You think? Did the other 2-3 threads plus Rift's F2P website not give it away?
I don't know that I'd start it new but as a bunch of us already have time and characters invested, it might get more people back in the game. They were doing big things when I stopped playing but no one from my guild was around anymore. I might have stayed longer otherwise.
I play MMOs for the Forum PVP
I enjoyed Rift... but when it released I ran into some money problems and had to let a few luxuries go. After my money stabilized I just didn't feel like going back; mainly because I don't like falling behind. I like being there when a game comes out and being in that group that gets the 'first kill' or has all the answers for the new players so I can spare them from trolls... I just never went back, but I did enjoy it.
Would I go back now? I don't know... maybe. The games I have access to now via beta testing phases are usually weekend only and to be honest... they all seem bland in their own ways.

If I was interested in Rift, I would be subbed to the game.
The game going F2P does not make it any more attractive for me.
Played it for several months and have been thinking about going back lately... this just makes it easier.
Rift was the game that I would go back to every few months but with the F2P conversion I probably won't go back now.
F2P does nothing to improve my gaming experience, and in most cases it only diminishes it.
Probably not. It does not offer any unique settings, or combat mechanics.
If TSW going F2P, i will be very interested.
All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.
I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.
I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.
I don't hate much, but I hate Apple© with a passion. If Steve Jobs was alive, I would punch him in the face.
Love Rift, will continue my sub. But my endgame is Dimensions - Rift's player housing.
Trust me, whatever trolls say every one will be interested when it goes f2p.
I m not an active subscriber but i can say from my past experience in the game, its way better than most mmo's out there.
Many of my guild mates in wow (twilight's hammer-eu) and gw2 (Underworld) and also rl friends, are willing to quit current games to jump together in to RIFT.
btw RIFT f2p model is more than excellent!
I honestly don't like the various soul tree linkups. Each skill is a direct requirement of the previous one. It just wasn't fun for me because forced tiered work is bleh imho.
Now I'm playing DCUO which has fewer abilities and such but believe it or not those skill sets seem less restrictiveve to me then Rift's.
I've been subscribed since launch and I'm so glad they're going sub-free. My sub expires in another 45 days and I wasn't planning on renewing so yeah I'm stoked.
I might even renew for another 3 months since I won't lose access once the sub expires.
This game isn't really a WoW clone. It's an evolution of the themepark that marries EQ2 and WoW design concepts and systems. The Dimension system is EQ2 housing reimagined while the crafting system is pretty much straight from WoW as is the auction house.
I think it's a pretty damn good game, but it needs some personality. It has lore, but I feel disconnected from it in a way that I'm not with EQ2. EQ2 I feel very connected to the lore of the world. Hopefully as Rift ages it will develop more character. I also hope they return to their design roots.
Im already playing for free through the raptr promotion and i dont know if would continue to play weather its f2p or not...
I login and like many mmorpgs now days i think of why i want to level...Can't think of any good reason.

Yup will be going back to Rift, had a lot of fun, wanted to go back for the expansion but for some unknown reason I couldn't update nor re-install the client, support were very patient and helped but could never connect to their servers, hoping the F2P transition may help with that.

Yeah i know TSW is B2P .. i may take the dive if i have time for the game. And at the same time, the client can only become cheaper.
No one on MMORPG is interested in any MMOs. They all apparently suck in their own way.

Free to play - NO
Some actual balance - YES
The Soul system is a mess.
