I've always wondered why they capitalize RIFT. I don't think it's an acronym.

Rift has no acronym like AoC, LotRo, WoW so they use RIFT instead.

Yes RIFT is the acronym, the real name for the title is HEALFEST, but they use RIFT for short. (Grin)

The only thing that would have made the real life FFXI playing closer to reality would be if someone shouted back, "loldrg!"

I think it's because they're still offended by being sued by Palladium

anyway you slice it. If a game is just a lobby, with matches -no persistent world, and no one EVER sees your actual character (looking at you, League of Legends), then it is not an MMO, and shouldn't really be here.

That said, if it wasn't, i would have never tried it, and found out how much I love me some LoL.

Um...yeah, I have a question. How do I get a personal image for my avatar as others have done, instead of Massively's stanadard?

@Utakata

When you log into Massively, if you look at the upper part of the screen, right below the banner ad at the top of the page, you see a green line running across. View right and it should say "Welcome back, Utakata". You click on that (or even the next line) and that takes you to your profile page. Limited options, but there you can Upload a pic. I forget if the site resizes the pic or not, but you can play around with it. I also think the site saves the pic, so if I remember, you don't need a website that hosts your pic.

Last time I changed my avatar, I got this blank spot instead. Since then I can't change it at all. Whee! :\

Thanks, I'll try that!

I call those one-eye moggi's...as in it reminds of what you get looking at the back end of a cat with it's tail up. :(

So there's no colon in City of Heroes Freedom. Well, I've been doing it wrong all this time! Does look a bit better with the colon, though. Still, I pledge to reform my colon-inserting ways.

This seems a good place to give feedback. Not the best place, but I don't see anywhere on Joystiq to give the feedback. Joystiq's sidebar info for SWTOR(seen on any article relating to it) has some outright wrong info, stating the 2 factions at war are the Galactic Empire and Sith Empire. It needs to be revised to say Galactic Republic instead of Galactic Empire. Could maybe one of the Massively guys change that since y'all are part of Joystiq now?
