    Trion has announced that depending on the response, the total amount of players, etc. that the server end is a fluid outcome. There has been a discussion of the server continuing and of something like a season as other games have done.  Nothing is set in stone, however, they have to go with the statement of around a year or so end time to cover their rear end. So players have to go into it knowing that it may actually be only around a year. Then at the end, if that's the outcome you get to move your character to a live server if you wish.

    With all that said, I am starting a Prime server guild to hit the ground running on launch 3/7/2018. Please check out my post here - https://forums.mmorpg.com/discussion/471886/prime-rift-prime-is-recruiting-active-progression-minded-members-for-launch-03-07-2018#latest 

    Come join us as a raider covering all the content as it is released and hitting raids as they come or join us to run dungeons, casual adventuring, or just social gaming.

    I reinstalled the game. I haven't played for about a year. Trion is not shy with their bandwidth.

    Nope. Shutting it down and forcing people onto F2P servers killed this idea. My guild played Rift at launch and loved it. We were really excited to finally play it again until this news. No one is touching it now with a ten foot pole... available for purchase on launch day from the Trion cash shop.



    Yeah, Rift had me hooked in beta. Loved it at launch, and tried desperately to love it after F2P. But that ship sailed, Guild Members left one by one after F2P... I have tried to watch the horizon and hoped beyond hope this was a solution to bring me back to the best experience of MMO playing I have had, that of RIFT.
    But I cannot do it knowing that the heart break of it ending ONCE AGAIN is inevitable. No thank you. fool me once shame on you, fool me twice...

    I'll probably try it.  I played when it first came out and had a good time.  They said this was mostly meant to bring in new and old gamers who had left long ago.  That most of their regulars might login just to look around and but not stay long.

    I think Trion does great job as a company, they just suck running archage. Rift is an aamzing game and support has always been great for Rift.
    Yeah, this where the Trion hate all started. People are still butthurt over it, yeah, ArcheAge was ruined, but Trion doesn't have complete control over it like they do with Rift. Now, you can absolutely blame Trion 100% if it has to do with Rift, but not ArcheAge.

    Again, that wasn't just Trion's decision; it was Bluehole's as well. I think it was Bluehole that called it quits after the success of PUBG.

    I'm not defending Trion, but they were not the only one making the decisions. I enjoyed playing Devilian, and I was disappointed when they announced that the game would be discontinued.

    If you would like to join a guild there is a recruitment Q&A here with links to the MMO discord. There are a few guild sub-channels in there.

    Wowzers. A gaming company that finally gets it. Sub is the only way to fully deliver without greed and the inevitable suckage setting in.

    Every company is all about the money, is worst when got investors in the mix. Then need to be more greedy to make investors happy.

    lol my "Trion hate" started when they screwed over Rift with the ftp monetization model. I tried to still love the game that they were slowly destroying but in the end I left. And yes I realize why they would want to go f2p, still doesn't change my opinion.

    Is Trion 100% responsible for what happened to Archeage? No but they did mislead the community about how much control they could exert over XL games to change features for a western audience and after patch 1.0 hit, P2W started and the rampant hacking and botting that was it for me.

    Funny how Blizzard has been asked for Vanilla servers for years, yet Trion beat them :P



    Blizzard isn't that desperate, and has no need to be.

    Paying for the privilege of playing a game before it was destroyed to the point where they had to change their business model so radically... Seems icky to me.
