While most fathers were enjoying brand-new ties and meals out on the town this past Sunday, RIFT
Lead Game Designer Bill Fisher
decided that he'd be a papa to the PvP game community and take care of their needs. Fisher went into the office on his day off, asked players what they wanted added
, and whipped up two new game modes for warfronts
The Black Garden warfront got a domination mode added, which allows players to wrest for the control of two key points. Also sporting a new domination mode is the Karthan Ridge warfront, although this one is a little more complex. Players in Karthan Ridge have to fight over five control points; the control points on the enemy's side of the map award more score points than do those on the on the home team side.
The hotfix also reinstated the second dimension option to players which had been disabled after the 2.3 patch.
