Well for my part Rift is head and shoulders above the competition. Do they have everything dialed in? Hell no but they sure as hell are paying attention and responding FASTER than ANY other company I have ever seen. Dang little things like the down time this AM. You can find 30 minute updates on the forums for heavens sake. I have just not seen this kind of attention to the player base. And dieing?? Heh I am bouncing off players on my server. I have been on dieing games before...and this one has no red flags flying high to indicate any troubles except for the new games on the near horizon. And from my perspective I can not remember observing any company as proactive as Trion, nor a team as attentive to the needs of the player. They can not please us all, as evidenced by other posts, but they sure as heck are on the right track.

@Crovak

Totally agree. The game is not perfect by any means but there's fun to be had and Trion has definitely impressed me enough to have no problem giving them money. I'll be renewing my 6 month sub with no hesitation. Can't wait for 1.5 and am really hoping for some objective-based open world rvr someday.

As a casual rifter the content they provide is at a steady and good pace. I do not like it when they bring out content way to fast - I am not a hardcore gamer. So when 1.5 hits I will have seen some of the previous content before going to the new ones.

I am definitely going to aim for the new World Event mount - The Murdantix I was not able to obtain so lets see how lucky I get this time

For me, Rift gives the feeling of "Quantity over quality". Ive now come to realize that i prefer fewer, less frequent, but higher quality updates to the games I play. Im still bored out of my mind, no matter how many things they add, or how quickly they add them.

Sounds really good tbh. Addons are much needed atm cause of some serious issues with the UI and pretty bad raid frames for healers. Trion is working hard and the news of new zone sounds really good. Its just what the game needs now.

Didn't read it all but are they fixing the mob distribution for lower levels this patch ?

Have they done anything about making the male character models less stupid-looking?

Rift's shortcomings are the shortcomings of all MMOs. MMO design philosophies and methodologies needs to change, but that isn't likely to occur in the near future to any great extent. That being said, I think the developers at Trion are some of the most involved developers in the industry. They truly seem to care what their players think and to have an abundant amount of energy, if the rate at which they produce new content is any indication.

My friends and I played Rift for about two months when the game was first released, and quit shortly thereafter for various reasons, not the least of which was boredom. I've been thinking about resubscribing for a month if only to see what changes have been made. It's not likely that I'll build strong connections with a guild in a months time. As a solo player, will I find enough to entertain me for one month?

sniff....sniff....

I smell children born in the 80's.

Trion has got some great stuff going on, even if they didn't keep my sub. Definitely a company to watch. That is all. Cheers.
