Too bad you didn't enjoy yourself enough to stay. Good Luck in whichever MMO endeavor you choose next.

-------------------

Personally I'm enjoying Rift, not because it's the perfect game, put because there's enough to do with my close friends to keep things interesting.

My previous game was Final Fantasy 14, and all the things that frustrated me about that game are done well in Rift.

I went with the 6 month subscription as well, at the pace I play with my friends (1-2 nights a week) that should give plenty of time to enjoy all the different facets of the game a see a few content updates besides.

Things should be well ironed out by then, and I can choose whether to re-up again at that point.

I think a simple "it's not for me" would have worked. But then you might not get all your attention.

Well, at least kids aren't so childish to post cancellation emails on forums...

We get these kinda asses on the WoW forums all the time. This doesn't tell us that the game is any good or bad and/or suffering from a plight of ex-players. Just the person is quitting in a stupidly spectacular manner in which we wish he or she would of just of quit sooner or never played it in the beginning.

I started out loving rift. I don't know what happened exactly. I may have kept playing if I had the money to burn, but I could not justify logging in anymore for days at a time. I only got to level 30 and began questing in Scarlet Gorge.

I love fantasy, I love fantasy worlds. I love the idea of MMORPGs, but my love affair with WoW for so many years has ended up producing one thing. A boredom for automatic combat. I am sick of being able to just stand still and go through a rotation. I want more tactile and action packed combat.

I want to to swing my sword and dodge, I want to hurl a fire ball and block blows. I don't want the stats on my gear to decide these things.

I look forward to Tera and Dragon's Nest, and I really hope Blizzard's next MMO has embraced this evolution in massive online worlds.

@Halfcentaur While you wait, try Vindictus if you haven't yet.

Since nobody knows anything about Blizzard's next MMO, there is no use putting your faith in it. For all we know it could play exactly like WoW with better graphics and a different setting.

Scarlet Gorge does that to you. I'll try and bypass as much of it as I can with my next toon.

I think this is more of a statement on MMO's that are gear dependent than any statement against RIFT specifically. This is the reason why I got off the endgame treadmill over at World of Recount...I mean Warcraft. And started leveling toons which have a story, don't care about stats too much and yet still kicking ass. I am seriously having blast with this.

Stats are fun if they give your toon an edge, but when they become the focus...the game starts to become retentive and unfun. And I agree...I Hope new games take this into account.

@Halfcentaur right there with ya - was excited to play and it just didnt have the originality to keep me. Seemed almost too easy, and grindy.

Like someone below said - Vindictus is repetitious but lots of fun - and free....

@(Unverified) Ooh, what is D&D Online doing that might make it more dynamic/interactive?

lol Cant blame people for debating the whole WoW thing when Rift keeps insisting on promoting it with the same stupid WoW comparisons themselves.

They brought it on themselves and keep inviting it back.

whatevs ;p
