@Iorkca

They haven't even put in the Instant Adventure content they promised and promoted so prominently yet to come with 1.6. Nor have they fixed the lagging and buggy issues with the patch.

Surely they aren't putting in this Xmas stuff before that because it wouldn't make much sense.

I think people would want the real content before a dog dressed up like a reindeer first.

1. Trion said Instant Adventures will come out soon after 1.6 hits so as to not overwhelm people with new content. Fair enough imo as there was ALOT of new cintent.

2. I am not having any lag problems and I have a pretty crappy net conection here in Perth. Maybe your internet blows?

3. From statements you made in the past on this site, you don't even play RIFT anymore so how would you know what people want or the issues you percieve the game is having?

You must have a pretty boreing unforfilling life if you have to come to anything related to RIFT/Trion and try to troll it or play down any positive news about them (like yesterdays article on Trion hireing people). Move on with you life lol. There are people out there that enjoy RIFT and think its doing just fine.

They have added and built upon so many things since release and work very hard for their sub dollors, unlike some other sub based MMOs, it seems strange you must troll everything they do... EVEN A CHRISTMAS EVENT!

In the end is compition in the MMO market not a good thing? The way trolls carry on on this site they clearly think not.

@avaloner Rift couldn't overwhelm users with content if they tried. The game is a joke when it comes to difficulty. The instant adventures were one of the highly anticipated features so for Trion to leave them out is highly disappointing. Whether you like it or not Rift is slipping when it comes to polish within the recent patch.

Yep RIFT is so easy that people spent months on the official forums screaming for nerfs to 5 mans and raids. And most raid guilds still have not downed Akilious even thou hes been out for what 3 months? People are demanding he be nerfed.

Also atm there is a long thread on the forums full of people saying Ember isle (the new area from patch 1.6) be nerfed as mobs hit to hard and have to many hp and they cant just AOE them down while they watch tv.
RIFT PVE is more difficult then WOW PVE.

@avaloner No, crybabies with shit friends/guilds spent months on the forums asking for nerfs. Anyone who had a competent group could have done the 5 mans with no problem past the initial learning curve. This was a key distinction between the users on the forums and the ones playing the game.

Your point on Ember Isle is exactly the same, nothing but crybabies who don't want to take time to learn complaining. On the first day it came out I listened to my old guidlies destroying the new content like it was nobody’s business. Sure, it’s not as easy as current day WoW but comparing where the two games were at roughly the same time, it’s too easy.

Now Akylios, like C'Thun from WoW, is a boss fight which is very demanding, no argument there. However, unlike the days of old where dps checks and real boss mechanics kept noobs in T1 or T2 heroics possibly, T1 raids, any noob can get geared enough to walk into Hammerknell within a few short weeks. Even you should be able to see why these people are going to cry for him to be nerfed when Trion lets anyone with a heartbeat waltz into content that is supposed to be for the dedicated. But hey, who wouldn’t want to see their e-peen achievements than actually complete content by earning it. You also conveniently forget how the first 4 bosses of Hammerknell were smashed through the day it opened. And then within the next 3 weeks people got literally to the end of it. At the end of the day Akylios is just one boss encounter and he can't compare with much of the raid content from WoW early days which kept many premier guilds stuck on bosses for almost half a year, not two months.

My refer-a-friend Corgi is going to make fun of that Corgi, at least until the fog comes in and the new little glow-nose saves the day. Why do devs always have to trivialize old pets?

Corgies in Rift should have always had antler horns. Somehow it just makes them more... Rifty.

Hmm. I'm in game and don't see anything about this. I also checked the Dev Tracker on the official Rift forums and didn't see any mention of the event.

It is easier to find Life on Mars than finding a high tagged populated server in Rift these days.

All but 4 medium are on LOW for EU
All but 8 medium are on LOW in the US (rest is medium)

Ref: http://www.riftstatus.net/shards/na/stats

With already 50% of their (small capped) servers deleted, the following quiz:

how many more will be deleted in the next 2 weeks (my guess is 3 more in EU and 7 more in US)

Succcessful? Since when is a 80% drop in players over 8 months "success".

Trion is just lucky of not being a publicly traded company so they can hide the figures.

But servers always show the truth....

@(Unverified). If you are using those server status websites as the only barometer of success within Rift (or any other MMO), then you have been grossly mis-advised.

Umm what has any of that to do with the xmas event?
Funny over the weekend during primetime there where 6 High pop servers many medium and only a few low.

I find it hilarius that people must have that RIFT status website bookmarked and in pretty much every RIFT post link it as they try to prove that RIFT is dead/dieing. As I said to Realbacon or whatever his name is, get on with your life, surely there must be more important things you could be doing then trolling an article about a game you don't like?

I don't like GW and think its a dumbed down MMO that, by the standards of when it released could only just be called an MMO. I am also not iterested in GW2 for many of the same reasons. DO i go to every article on either game to troll it or try to prove its dead?

No, I have better things to do like read and comment on games I do enjoy.

@avaloner Well that's what you do when you don't care about something, right? Follow it obsessively and comment on its every move?

If they're not fans, why are they acting like it?

Don't worry - in a few short weeks real65rcncom (or, as I shall now forever more think of him, realbacon) and his ilk will be happily playing SWTOR and exerting all their energy excoriating players who dare offer a critical remark about TOR. Those of us playing - and enjoying - other games can breath a collective sigh of relief.
