I suppose that means my six month sub is finally over. Note to self, never buy a six month sub for a game at launch. You might end up bored and quitting after three.

@KDolo The last month of mindless wandering, dungeon fapping, and pvp gear grinding probably could have been avoided. Not sure what got into me. I admittedly fell for the hype and wanted to give it a fair shake, I suppose. Take note, lil' junior Jedis.

The funny thing?

And I know Massively will ban this comment because thats they way they are...

But, Arithion, the podcast girl, ended up not being able to play any longer due to not being able to sit still for ten minutes and staring at a screen.

That was the excuse she gave for not wanting to play anylonger and doing the podcast.

She couldnt tell them lack of content was the real reason.....

lol sad......

I CANT LOOK AT TEH SCREEN.....IM DIZZZZZY I TELL YA

I wouldn't say that lack of content is the problem with RIFT, they've actually been good with churning out updates with short intervals. My main problem with the game was that none of the content I saw really 'popped' and drew me into the game. Everything is nice and feels pretty good but at the same time it all just feels pretty... generic. (Just my personal opinion, you can all calm down now, fanboys and haters alike).

I put in somewhere between 50 and 70 hours in the game probably, and while that might not seem like very much, it's way more then I put into most of the games I usually play. If'm sorry Trion, but if you haven't gotten me more interested then "huh, this is neat I suppose" after 50 hours, I'm probably not going to keep subscribing. Once again, just my opinion.

Classy... You do realize she skipped being on the podcast a couple times because of her medical condition? No, of course you didn't, because you are a cretinous half-wit who sees only inane conspiracy where it was quite obvious that there was, in fact, a medical issue.

Please keep your absurd babble to yourself next time.

@Marchosias Cynical much? I think it's more that she loved it so much that she spent nearly 20 hours a day 7 days a week playing it. If you sit at a computer that long, something is going to give medically speaking!

@Marchosias i doubt anyone thought any different, it was a pretty weak bailout. I guess after hyping the game up for so long, receiving unlimited access to devs for podcast's, and topped off with a paid trip to Trion offices, dinner and such and then finding out like most of us did that it didn't hold your interest for too long, well whaddya gonna say, the truth?

I bought 6 months too and played for about 2, I guess my 6 months are up too.

I will mention that the first month, was a ride I'll never forget.

Great description, for a game with 3 souls it had no soul.

That first month though...

Me:
1st month: Wow! This game is awesome! Best game I've played!
Second Month: This game is fun...just hit 50!
Third month: This game is boring me, there's no dynamic content! It's just grind.
Fourth month: So why did I renew my three month sub? This game...is horrid....
Fifth month: Didn't play.
Sixth month: Oh wait? I forgot I had this!

The first month was amazing but it got too grindy, and the dynamic content wasn't there anymore. Will I say it was a good game? Yes, I only have good memories from it. Will I ever resub to it? Most likely not.

Do I hope it lasts? You bet I do.

Hello there,
Short time lurker, first comment here.

Why you guys hate some games so much?
I mean, Rift is a good game, WoW is a good game, and I have heard some good things about ToR, yet this place has a continuous flame war towards some games, ToR and Rift being top targets.

All I know is me and my friends, long time players in another mmo's are enjoying this game. We haven't finished the content yet, and it will be a long while before we do.

Yes, we are not hardcore players, but we neither are casuals (20 hours a week or so).

I, for example, just extended my subscription to 6 months (from 3 months) since Trion has showed expertise churning out content in a rate I have never seen before. And kudos to them. I hope they set an example for other companies to follow.

It seems the user base in this website finish the content in a week or two, in most games, and is out of touch with normal players, but that is just my opinion.

Just enjoy the games.

Then again this is the internet and I guess flaming is part of the culture, but, oh well.

tl;dr; Stop hating. Most players have a lot of things to do in Rift and we are glad the way Trion been working. Keep it up!

@(Unverified) I think it's easy for most readers to confuse hate with many things....boredom, slight dislike, buyers remorse. It's hard to like a game and read criticism about it, no matter how slight or intense that criticism might be. It turns you into the jealous girlfriend wether you like it or not. Trion has done well with this title, no doubts. I'm pretty sure everyone above would agree to some extent.

At any rate, I find this site to be filled with fairly happy daisies compared to some other dark holes on the internet. I wouldn't worry about it. People despise games that I love, too. True story.

Yeah, gotta say, if you lurked here some more, there as many haters and likers (is "likers" a word? ;P ). Sure, you will have certain people with a particular stance posting again and again, even in other topics, but you will have just as many (or more) people defending a particular game. But, I will admit, on some comments, the haters do outnumber the others.

Again, it's the internet. Easier to be driven to post a critique or in anger than to post praise. That's just human nature. You are forgetting that in "flame wars", you need TWO sides of an argument, not just one.

Most of us just enjoy the games. And those who are enjoying the games are not posting; they are playing. Take heart in that.

I really enjoyed the rift beta, and preordered with a 3month sub... Got quickly to max level but and loved every minute of it. This game did so much right, yet when i reached 50 i found myself stuck for something to do. The last month of my sub passed without me even bothering to log in...
Now that doesnt mean there was nothing to do, but after many years of wow i think i've become too cynical to join the never ending grind for new gear. Still, after trying many of the f2p MMOs in recent weeks i am sorely tempted to reinstate my rift sub, just for those occassions where i fancy some mmo action.
I still firmly beleive its the best mmo on the market today.

Coin Lock was implemented to fix an issue with accounts being compromised, it didn't fix the actual issue though.
People were bypassing logins by spoofing the security tokens used to log into the game quickly, allowing hackers to log into random accounts without the use of a password or login.

maybe im the only 1 who reads the quests in mmos nowadays, but i cant help but think a majority of mmo veterans and/or gamers burn themselves out trying to reach max level at record speed. i find that the game has plenty of "soul" if you take your time and find the story. this is a new ip and doesnt have years of lore and previous games to build from. even i get burnt out on the genre from time to time since ive played everything under the sun. it doesnt lack content, soul, flair, or any other substance. i think as gamers are more youth oriented that they eat games up so fast then toss it when they dont feel "full" of anything. at the rate in which the player base burns through games, its no wonder this game or the next wont be able to hold your attention for more then a month or two. slow down enjoy the ride. mmos are about the journey not the destination. if you dont like the journey then you wont like the genre.

@antikrosoft83 I sort of agree, except that countless sources point to the fact that the average mmo player is in his/her 30's. As someone who's almost 40 I see it as a mass of players who have been chasing carrots for over a decade and are sick of it...but keep paying and playing anyway...just faster :) Cheers.

@antikrosoft83 You're absolutely regarding reading the quests, i sure dont do it. when i switch an MMO on it's because i want to play a game, not read a story. If i want to read a story i'll grab a good book,
