    Starfall is worse mate. You literally cannot ding 70 without XP Pots and Patron XP bonuses through the main questing. You end up at 68-69 without them. And XP from Dungeons and Planar Assault is meh at best.

    I dont get the Crucia hate, leveling through that zone with that weird lady and his random screaming orders was the best experience i ever had in a MMO

    To be fair it is normal in the industry for devs especially in MMOs to tie their release dates with other games. An example would be FF14 Heavensward and 6.2 for WoW coming out on the same day.

    This is true, but if they'd launched on time this wouldn't be an issue. There wasn't really squat going on in the MMO space a few weeks ago that I can think of, so they'd have had a pretty clear launch time. Not great for media with back to back trade shows, so it would have limited their coverage a bit, but they'd at least have avoided butting up against a major WoW patch that's sure to steal a lot of headlines.

    Honestly though, at this point Rift is small enough that Blizzard doesn't really bother with competitive launches/announcements at the same time anymore. They did for years, but it doesn't really seem like Blizzard views Rift as a competitor anymore.

    Oh yeah for sure with Rift. But I just meant games in general. The 6.2 and Heavensward one being an example.

    Holy shit didn't realize it had dropped even lower than before. Makes me wonder how many are playing on the official client. 10,000? Maybe less?

    Oof, not exactly FFXIV or TESO huh?

    Its a shame to see a game i really, really enjoyed turn to shit. I loved Storm Legion time, messing around at halloween in my pumpkin covered spooky mansion in the woods dimension with friends and making wierd macros to get the most out of my tempest builds but good lord it seems like Slipmats blind brand ambassador shillvalry is the only positive voice for the game outside its forums that serve only to act as an echo chamber.

    What a goddamn shame.

    People keep accusing Blizzard of that, but really I see other companies being more ruthless with it.

    Are they really making so little money with Rift to have to abandon it?

    Maybe when RIFT shuts down they'll have a single player client available for download so we don't loose our characters or access to the world but I doubt it.
    Pretty sure you got a vast library of games that you haven't played in a long time, it happening to an MMO is no different.

    I wouldn't say it's getting abandoned. But with them lowering the price of Soul Packs recently I imagine they need money for Rift. Like I said I see Trove being their cash cow now.

    But I can play those games whenever I want. They're not going anywhere. MMO's disappear forever unless some private server takes over and doesn't get shut down itself.

    i can see them later this year or early next year just shutting down rift or selling the ip they already lost player trust and there is no way they are going to be able to appeal to casual gamers

    I haven't played since it had a sub model (even though they technically still do, depending on who you choose to believe on r/rift) but I'd say a HUGE barrier to entry is that 40-50 dollars more than a triple A game title on steam. $120 is nothing to really scoff at, and while yeah I get that you don't need most of the things in those bundles- people are competitive by nature and will see things like souls they don't have or empty earring slots as a negative or empty checkbox.

    I'm not at all saying RIFT is dead, because honestly- I don't really care. It is however going through similar symptoms/death throes other games have gone through before the plug was inevitably pulled. No idea what the non-steam CU# looks like, but I don't imagine it higher than 10k- and that's pretty bleak friends.

    If I was a new player somehow attracted to the idea of RIFT (and all it's content packs) and say that new Square Enix game, Dawn of War III and some DLC for both- I'd probably go the later route.

    that's another thing they do have a sub option and dlc and the expansion,,,,,,,,,,to get everything the game has to offer you need to spend an absurd amount of money and things like mounts and wardrobe dont go in game they go to the cash shop! so you can spend more money. the game is just a pay to win piece of crap
