I still think you shouldn't be able to ride your mounts in main buildings, it's just plain rude.

Trion pandering again to the lazy whining few.

@(Unverified) When you only have a handful of players, you have to do your best to keep them.

Right now (after 6 month sub cutoff) 3 servers high, 2 low, the rest medium. Couple more than a handful. Nice try.

Thanks for posting this. I want to go back in the near future, I was curious about server activity. Glad to see them having such high player retention, even after they expanded server capacities!

@chum Because a server at medium pop means there are a lot of players. Do you know how many people it takes for a server to show as medium? 200

I'm very impressed, how did you manage to write so much about Rift? jk... /pokes Ren54.

Ouch. You get downvoted to Hell for making a perfectly civil reply to someone deliberately trolling you, who hasn't received the same treatment. I understand you can be pretty terrible when it comes to some topics, but punishing you even when you're being good is pretty low.

Incidentally, I upvoted you and downvoted him. :)

It's called a reputation. And repercussions. I think Ren has a point, but he has trolled so much I am not surprised he gets downvoted every time.

It's not just ToR you cut down. Pretty much every MMO you comment on is a double edged insult, even ones you are supposedly looking forward to. It gets tiresome to see you constantly insulting games that aren't out yet. Some might deserve it, most don't.

Actually, at the time I posted you were greyed out and he was normal. But anyway, it's really not just them. I'm not pleased with SW:TOR either, but I've felt a few of your comments were particularly out of line. You can come across as very patronising and uncompromising, without any humour or ability to see beyond your set notions. There's some hypocrisy in your opinions too.

@Unverified

Pretty sure it was obvious that my point was I don't think much of that kind of conduct. ;)

"it doesn't really make sense that the planar invaders wouldn't send in their best to attack the capital cities."


It doesn't have to make sense. It's a game. Some people seem to think a game has to follow reality and "make sense", while a game's purpose is to provide entertainment and fun.

A boss mob throwing bunches of underlings to fight the heroes in different stages makes no sense. What would make sense is the boss mob rushing the heroes with all his minions in tow to wipe all the heroes out in a massive zerg. And if the boss mob were losing, he should run off so he doesn't die and the heroes get no loot. But how fun would that be?

For gameplay reasons, it's not a good idea to throw max level mobs into a town where there are L10s, L20s and L30s.

i really don't like the idea of single player dungeons, as it kind of defeats the purpose of playing an mmo if your not doing anything mm. In saying that raiding should never be the be all and end all of endgame.
i enjoyed rift for awhile but this was it for me as pvp is slowing but surely being suffocated

i see your point to an extent. why provide incentive to not interact, that is. but it's not like there's ONLY single player end game stuff, and it's not like the 1-2mans are the exact same content as the standard raid. not everyone is in a multi-facted guild where there's fun stuff to do with multiple comrades at all times. or sometimes people just want to do something on their own, but still have epic story feel. the same guy running 1man dungeons, might also be the first to jump in on any and every public group (::looks in mirror::)

i have pvp'd a bit now in Rift and am glad to see a new warfront. that was always one thing that's nice about Warhammer (albeit the game in general got old to me fast) is the variety of scenarios (warfronts, bg's, w/e). i like capture the flag, but not over the same terrain 10 times a day. gimme some mo'

anyway, i say kudos on 1.5 and kudos to the fact that 1.6 is probably not 3-6 months away ::cough cough:: blizzard ::cough cough::

Guild wall -- last 10 minutes before the spam was unbearable and an officer locked it down. Hasn't been used since and it's not missed either!

@Scarecrowe

leave it up for 2 more weeks and significantly fewer people will use it, most likely.

never underestimate the excess attention given to things that are new and shiny.
