    I think I'm going to give this game another spin. I have very fond memories of the launch of this game. Had some great times with rift invasions of towns. I know there is a lot of doom and gloom out there about this game, but I'd like to try out the game for myself.

    This last update was pretty disappointing considering the reuptake costs and how many old builds were broken such that viable build options dwindled to a couple per class. Their poor launch also wasted the last month of my sub so overall this mmo gets dropped back down near the bottom. It feels like some of my other studios and pubs are working a lot harder and squeezing the players a lot less.

    I still shake my head at the path the company has walked down. I remember the original launch of Rift, heck I played it non-stop with a great raiding guild.
    The devs where accessible, seemed genuinely to care more about the game and players than any bottom line.
    Great variations in class builds, new content, and above all - and overriding enthusiasm that jumped out of the screen at you.
    Now I see it with some sadness. Still a game with fantastic potential but seemingly infected by the drive 'at all costs' for the bottom line dollars.
    For anyone coming into the game there's a pretty daunting expansion cost pile up, which seems to get steeper the longer the game continues.
    Maybe if they brought out some kind of reduced cost lump sum package? But even then the road that Trion has gone down may tend to discourage people from committing.
    Which is a real shame when thinking of my original memories of of Rift and the company.

    Then: No tricks, no traps.

    Now: No customers.

    I rarely have to buy WoW expansions. I don't play WoW much but I sometimes play for a couple months a year. Right before the next xpac they send me an advert email offering me 7 days time and the xpac. I play and sub for a month or two and never buy the xpac. So fiddling around with my little nooby WoW characters costs me about $15 - $45. Rift cost me almost $300 including the 3 month sub (because you really do want to do that if you're going to play).

    You know a Trion game is in trouble when even DMKano doesn't visit it's thread to defend it!

    Game needs full server merging so all the guilds and economies are in the same place. Other than that, there's a TON in the game. So much so that it looks like an overwhelming mess. Call it a learning curve? Maybe.. but IMO there's too many currencies.. too many items.. too many ways of upgrading items... too many equipment slots...

    Seriously, it's all just thrown in there. Total overkill with no proper introduction to it all aside from one or two simple quests.

    What there isn't...is too many builds or skills. Yeh, there's always what people call 'viable' builds.. but that's just elitists talking. You can make whatever you want and be successful at almost all normal PvE and Dungeons. Raids are the only issue; if you're not facerolling it, the elites will complain.

    This game gets half of an awesome MMO right and half wrong.

    Still, I think it's one of the best options for that old school themepark MMO style. WoW isn't that style anymore, it changed man. EQ2 has not aged well at all. Archeage has those absolutely stupid restrictions on how much you can do at once. FFXIV is a decent option though, I suppose.
    I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.
