    So I tried the Rift Prime experience and I am very disappointed.  I started about a week after it came out and was on a 2 week pass.  By the time my pass was up many people had already hit 50 and the queue to do lower level content was getting kind of long.  I made it to level 19 on two desperate characters.  maybe I should have just power leveled one character, but I wanted to try and enjoy a slower paced leveling and hopefully get to see a lot of the early content.  I am not sure why so many people raced up to the highest level, but they did.

    I did not renew my subscription. I really wanted to enjoy the game at what I would consider a reasonable pace. 

    Has anyone noticed the same thing? 
    This is how it was at launch.  It does not take long to level in Rift if that is your goal.

    Because of the small world zones should be decently populated for a while though.

    Keep in mind the original launch of Rift saw huge early interest.  Week 1 everyone was having a blast, everyone talking about how amazing Rift was.  Within 3 months most of them had left.  Other than the PvP crowd, there werent tangible reasons why people were leaving (for the most part), they just were.

    I always though Rift had no soul.  It was pretty, had an interesting class concept, was technically well made, and zone wide events were great fun, at least at first.  But the more you played, the blandness of things just kind of set in.  And the game world and lore, which is important to MMORPGs, is just bland and uninspired.

    Obviously Rift clicks with enough people to have kept it around all these years, but for the vast majority of MMORPG players the game lacks staying power and I don't see how Prime addresses the flaws of the game.  Its not possible to fix Rift's flaws really.

    When a game design is bad,everything is a race to end game,this has been going on ever since Wow was released.
    Nobody cares about Lore or rpg elements,everything is a veee line directly towards speed leveling.
    There is a game world !!! Oh really,where can i level the fastest..there are npc's to tal kto ,oh really ,where is the best starting zone to level up the fastest.There are many classes to enjoy,oh really which one is the easiest to solo and level up fast.

    See the trends,VERY shallow gaming is what games and players are all about now a days,it is very sad times for quality gaming.


    Pick an mmo that doesn't have people racing to the end?  That is just part of today's gamer.  It's always a race to get to the end and then move on.  One of the main reasons I think that western devs don't make mmo's anymore.  I really don't think it has to do with the quality of the game.  For you maybe, but not me.  If I don't like a game, I just don't play it.  I won't finish it just because.

    I left rift about 2 months after it had released.  Not because it was a bad game, but it got old having been playing it since the first closed beta.  That was my mistake.  I don't do f2p games, so I thought I would try out prime and I'm having fun going at my own pace.  Level 30 and have been playing for 2 weeks.  I think I avg maybe 15 min for group cues, but that is  nothing really.

    I have no intention of raiding, so once I hit cap, I will roll another then unsub until more content is added.

    There are plenty of reasons why you are not getting into dungeons or finding people your own level to play with. One of the biggest reasons would be you are in a guild that does not have a ton of players. Look for one and I am sure you will find players to play with at your own pace relatively.

    Secondly, if you don't want to tank or heal in instant dungeons yet expect for solo queue to be instant you will greatly be disappointed. There is no 1 to 1 to 1 ratio for dps.  Your queue time is not long because there are not enough people but because their is just too many players you are fighting with for DPS/Support spots. 

    Consider that people of higher level are being rewarded to go back and play early level dungeons bolstered and early level zones and dungeons should be populated for that fact alone. Also, you have EU players on that server too so you will have raids more often throughout the day.
