Rift may not be very good but at least they know how to market it and make people remember it's still around. New MMO's could learn a lesson from them.
It's like that Avatar movie's marketing.

I love Rift. I've grown to love it more and more as I play it. What type of Rift would the staypuff marshmallow man fall under. Imagine? I couldn't help it...it's the first thing I thought of ... I just couldn't help it. lol

It's a good prize, but it's pretty standard for running an art contest on a site like deviantart. A large high quality commission is easily hundreds of dollars.

It's probably decent marketing though. There's definately worse ways to spend a few thousand dollars.

I saw this same type of contest that took place with EVE, and as someone who plays both Rift and EVE I would rather not see this happen. Most "artists" on DeviantArt are horrible and attempt to blatantly rip others off.

Don't fuck this up, DA!

@ElusiveEnt

Well, you can probably say most "artists" are horrible, period, depending on at what technical or creative level you consider art to be "good".

That said, imo there's definately a significant number of great artists on DA. And most artists I know have a DA account, whether they actively use it or not.

I bet they will be more imaginative that Trion, using a 10x scaled regular mob model as the "boss"

Blizzard, the king of the MMO marketplace, has NEVER done this.

Ohhhh wait. Yeah they have. A lot.
