@paraLogiki

Reading it wrong. They are making dailies into weeklies. Ie you can do 7 dailies per week in as little as 1 day after 1.2. Ie weekend warriors won't get less currency than players who run experts err daily.

hehe nice to see nothing changes, I bet the massively editors love it when Rift news pops up as it seems to guarantee lots of traffic passing through their site. I don't think I have seen one single Rift article that hasn't made it into the "Most Popular Posts in the Last 7 Days" section.

Of course half of the posts made are from people who for some reason want to post derogatory comments about the devs, the game or the people who actually enjoy Rift. I guess that they fail to realise that they are part of the reason that Rift is getting a lot of coverage as each article gets so many hits. I wonder what would happen if they could restrain their troll tendencies and just scroll past, whether we would continue to see so many articles or as much coverage.

Personally I think Rift is great and am really looking forward to the 1.2 changes and the future of a game I enjoy playing.

I find some of the comments pretty amusing. Rift is what it is and doesn't pretend to be something else. It's a good game in its category. People can state "I don't like Rift because I'm bored with the WoW model and Rift is too close to WoW for me", it shouldn't offend people who still like the game. Is Rift very similar to WoW on many aspects ? Yes. Does it make it necessarily a bad game ? No.

But stating that all MMOs use the exact same mechanics to defend Rift design choices is a bit ridiculous in my opinion, because that's just not true. There are many games that play differently.

As for the game still growing in subs, I wish it's true. It could be just PR, or it could be the truth and it's very hard for us to be sure. As a matter of fact, server population at a given time doesn't have a linear correlation to the subs number. When a new MMO releases people spend many more hours in game the first weeks (thus all servers full), than one or two months later even if they still enjoy the game (most servers at med). That's very likely to be the drop of population noticed in game.

Being able to save up dailies and knock them out on a weekend is an awesome improvement. I hate it when a game tries to force you to log on every day to be "optimal".

It starts to feel like a job.

Good, and give Scandinavian people their own server because those idiots are spamming Blightweald EU with their Sweden-Norway-Denmark only guild PR.

Once again I see the Rift haters have parked their flying mount in Stormwind, come out of the basement, emptied the plastic urinal, put another Hot Pocket in the 500 watt microwave and are ready to go to war over a new game that is not Blizzard approved.

These cretins have taken precious moments away from WoW to come here and join the holy crusade to discredit this upstart MMO.

The thinking goes...
How Dare these Trions create a game that might affect my world, my domain, my personal universe where I rule over nub & elitist alike, where I answer any question, know every rock... and can argue for hours over the smallest class stat to the point of a science lesson.

Yes... I understand, your fears are well founded cretin, for many have left the Barren plains to explore this new world, the world that Dares to taunt you, in your nightmares, you hear...
"You're NOT in Azeroth Anymore!" and the realization hits you... OMG, I may not be a god anymore, my 112 mounts, my 145 pets, my 346 gear, my achievements... I'll be like the huge tree falling in a forest where there's No One to hear it fall!

This cannot happen, we will fight, we will come to all of the Rift forums and convince them this game is bad, it's evil... it's a CLONE!

Yes cretin, I understand, we all understand... you are scared, you fear the basement and the Hot Pockets will never be the same if you are no longer worshiped as you parade through Stormwind, hailed as a hero by all, you, killer of raid bosses, master of WoW, left with no one to marvel at your accomplishments, you would be just another MMO player, just another nub in a world you don't understand, one where you must start over and again make the MMO world understand what you already know... that You are a god, never to be questioned or challenged in your world.

This is what Rift deals with on every forum, these self-appointed WoW gods, the mafia of MMO's who will do anything to hold on to this 'power' they perceive, that gives them a reason to live, to feel like they are really alive.

What the rest of us really understand is this... in your real world you wear greens while dreaming of epics, drive a broken down car while planing how do grind the next new mount, , live in your mom's basement while farming another 100k of gold, and respect your raid buddies more than your girl friend.

Okay.. how's that for a pretty picture?


Disclaimer: I just had to give the Rift haters some of their own treatment, sorry to all good WoW players, all 15 of you.

I love how all of these people complain about the LFG feature. Those that complain about it usually have a core group of others to run with. As a casual player, I look forward to this. If you don't like it, WOW will always take you back.

@SWILK3RS

They don't want it because it is in WoW to begin with, tard.

If you're going to use the tired "go back to WoW" kindergarten insult, at least understand the topic first.
