    Check the subforum this is in before you make yourself look like a fool.

    If you are incapable of that, had you read even the first line, you would see RIFT mentioned, and the Trion soon after.

    Don't be so trigger-happy with that reply button.

    Basically most of these threads are the larger ones over there atm and it just shows the disdain within the Rift community at the moment. Hell a lot of Prime guilds have mostly disbanded.

    What they really need to do (this has been brought up already but it is so true) is scrap a lot of their other projects like D2050 and Atlas and focus on RIFT and Trove, I think interest in RIFT is still there if the company got its act together and produced some quality content.

    Meh I think they are past that. I genuinely wonder if Rift will still be here 5 years later.

    Even Trove which while a fun little game has similar cash shop problems.

    Imagine if a company like Blizzard or Square Enix bought Rift and hired in some of the story-devs. I'd pay for that. Hell, I'd buy the game again, even.

    Was the big guy working on the 4.x raids too.

    Point is Trion have either moved around or a lot of people have left recently. Which says to me they weren't happy within the company and felt their career there wasn't taking them any further.

    ....no, that's not what it means.

    People eventually move on to new things. It's your fault that you use hyperbole and completely made up "hunches" to say "well they must be unhappy and want to leave", letting your pessimism shape your thoughts.

    There are many, many reasons people quit jobs and go other places. Being unhappy with the company is just one of many many variables.

    Well yeah. It's just my opinion lol. Never once tried to make it up as a hunch or state it as a fact. Just said "which says to me" which basically says I'm presenting it as an opinion. I don't understand how having an opinion is my fault though since everyone is entitled to one.

    Of course there are loads of variables. And in my opinion with so many devs leaving I believe that they felt they weren't going much further within Trion.

    Rift right now is not in a perfect place. And with devs leaving left right and centre I'm of the opinion that they were unhappy there due to not much changing within the company.

    Trion in general is in a meh place because of them trying to manage so many games at once.

    I hope you don't think Rift is in a good place atm...

    If you genuinely think Rift is in a perfectly fine place, then you're delusional.

    Rift sub-forum.

    So when you said the thing about "lead raid designer from 3 expacs ago" you showed your inability to check where this thread is located or read the first damned post at all. Literally has Rift and Trion all over it.

    Honestly the impression I got from the first guy you mentioned was that he'd read the thread, considering he's talking about population numbers, which were mentioned. Second guy though has foot-in-mouth.
    Ryzen 7 1700 @ 4GHz - GTX 1080Ti @ 2.1GHz - - Ivy Bridge i5 3570k @ 4.5Ghz - GTX 1060 @ 1.8GHz

    I replied to someone specifically u dummy, it wasnt in relation to the OP. Get over yourself u baddie.

    Not sure if it's ok to bump with this @Edge but if not I'll delete it. Not Rift related per se but more Trion related.

    Seems Trion in general have had at least 15 layoffs as of late with one of them being the Archeage Associate Producer.

    15... on top of the devs who already left or were moved around. That really doesn't look good for them.

    Judging by the CEO post at the bottom and how "well" Defiance 2050 is doing at the moment all I can speculate here is that the money from buying Gazillion assets and what went into Defiance 2050 is a factor of this. Key word is speculate.

    Still have fond memories of vanilla Rift and its first expansion launch. It was the only MMO that replaced WoW for me back then. It did so many things right for endgame. Sucks it completely went downwards after F2P, they need to put it out of misery and possibly get a sequel funded through kickstarter or something. I would support it for sure.

    I wish WoW copied some of Rift's ideas like the paragon leveling and perks, additional procs on gear/weapons and the professions were actually worth a damn.
