If you decided to take advantage of RIFT
's new free-to-play status
yesterday, you were probably met with a big fat server queue message that may have ruined your entire life (according to the RIFT forums
). While this is certainly bad for anyone wanting to play the game, it's an ironically good problem to have for Trion Worlds
and the two-year-old MMO.
The team at Trion monitored the situation throughout the day and night, raising server caps and converting the EU Icewatch server
to a Trial Only Shard, but commented that opening new clusters
today might be a necessity
for North American shards.
