I know there's a WoW comparison thread.. I know the games are simular.. I've actually played WoW for about 3 weeks, after the 3rd week I let my sub run out and never looked back.. Game wasn't for me, i won't delve into the reasons why.. I found solace in EvE Online and since then that was the "go to" MMO for me.. I subbed on and off for about 8-9months until Rift was released.
I participated in Rift's beta 3&4 events and i had a alright time for the most part.. But towards the end it just felt so stale (i was on my 3rd lvl 20 character though) i even canceled the pre order i had.. I was planning to just wait out SWTOR and take a break but after reading all the positive things on Rift after it released i really wanted to give it another shot..
I'am glad i did as i've finnaly found a MMO i could see myself playing for a few months.. I've actually joined into a pretty large guild and am really getting into the mechanics of this game.. Everytime i log in it feels fresh and new for me.. Take War Fronts for example.. They feel like a new experience to me because the two MMO's ive played the longest (AION+EvE) never had them.. But for someone who spent a lot of time playing WOW they probably feel really stale and uninspired even.. Same with instances, AION (pre 2.0 is when i played) at launch had like 5 instances for each faction, and they wernt all nescarry to do.. EvE didn't have them at all.. So even these instances feel new to me.
Do you guys think that those who have very limited experience with WoW/Theme parks are likley to get more enjoyment from Rift? I defiantly do..
