    Nope.  Tried it, typical run of the mill themepark, nothing special and destined eventually for the great themepark trashcan.

    I played when it first came out, but havent tried it for well over a year. I will probably download it and see what it has become.

    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 played the CB, and It just isn't the right art style to me. not Anime enough. its a good  game, and I would love to play it if i could stand the visuals. 

    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.

    Not I, I tried it in beta and after release for about a month. It's basically a poor copy of WoW for me. Not interested in themepark mmorpg's. Also, I'm not interested in an mmorpg that isn't a subscription based game, I don't like cash shops, nor do I like the types of people that are drawn to F2P and B2P games....Cheapskate, gimme everything for free or with little effort, casual players.

    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.

  • IselinIselin Vancouver, BCMember Posts: 7,713 Epic

    Definitely.

    Played it for several months and have been thinking about going back lately... this just makes it easier.

    Now it makes sense why Trion was giving away Rift + Expansion for free to everybody on Raptr about a month ago.  Guess it was one last push to get players to join before converting to Free to Play?

    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. 

     

  • nariusseldonnariusseldon santa clara, CAMember Posts: 26,690 Rare

    Probably not. It does not offer any unique settings, or combat mechanics.

    If TSW going F2P, i will be very interested.

    Played Rift when it first came out. One of the few games I could not finish due to boredom. 
  • eye_meye_m Notta Chance, ABMember Posts: 3,313 Uncommon
    I don't prefer the game mechanics so it's a no for me.

    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.

  • KareliaKarelia HeraklionMember Posts: 668

    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.

    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.

    I have 10 months or so left on the x pac year deal. I cancelled today after I saw this news. I won t pay a sub for it ever again, nor will I spend a cent in their cash shop. Personally theres better games out there. I m happily playing EQ2 and DAOC mostly now anyways.

    TSW is B2P and the client is cheap, no monthly fee, well worth the small outlay.

    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.

    Trick question:

    No one on MMORPG is interested in any MMOs. They all apparently suck in their own way.

    You can get Storm Legion for around $20 USD now. I might pick that up and give the game a go. There's a number of folks in my guild who play it.
  • XiaokiXiaoki White Pigeon, MIMember Posts: 2,766 Uncommon

    Free to play - NO

    Some actual balance - YES


    The Soul system is a mess.
