        • Releases in May.

          Also, I decided to give Rift a go... And so did over 1 million other people. That's a record, folks. Most successful initial launch in MMO history, and from what I've heard, it's good. Haven't gotten to play because the queue is so backed up. Not complaining, though. Would rather be waiting than swimming in lag.

              The amount of subscribers on launch doesn't matter. The first month is free. Wait and see how many users it retains after that month is over.

              Rift is a World of Warcraft clone with more class choices and random Rift "events" spawning in the world. Everyone I've talked to has said that it is pretty much the exact same game. No thanks.

                  Leveling isn't the point, it's the grind. The point is doing things at max level, ie dungeon crawling, raiding, etc.

                    I'm ever-skeptical, but I've heard good things. Initial launch doesn't mean much, but it does mean they made $50+ million in box sales in one day (probably closer to $60 or $70 million).

                    Sure, they used a lot of concepts WoW uses and probably have a very similar interface, but you'd be stupid not to these days. Some of the design concepts from WoW are just standard at this point.

                    The class system is pretty unique. There are skill trees, but you get to pick which trees you use. You start as a Warrior, Mage, Cleric, or Rogue (typical stuff) and can choose any 3 subclasses from your main class to form your 3 trees.

                    And one of my friends is (was) a high level raider in WoW (Top 50 guild). He says it has a much better - or at least different feel to it than WoW. It's not a WoW clone, it's just a post-WoW MMO.

                    Most of the people I play with are from Shadowbane (i.e. much different than WoW). They, in large part, hated WoW and were pretty nomadic since SB ended. They played some Darkfall and some of them moved to Eve. All of them played beta and really liked it.

                    I don't mean to sound like I'm singing the praises of the game, but it has potential and the people I play with like it a good bit.

                    • I didn't mean it to sound like I hate the game, I don't, but the entire group of friends I play with (who you'd hardly consider World of Warcraft fanboys) have said that there is very little there that would be considered innovation.

                      The class system is neat and Rifts are okay (as long as they handle contribution points differently than Warhammer.. I swear my Runepriest got dicked over because of that) but I'm not seeing groundbreaking in any aspect, and that's what I need these days to get excited.

                      • There's a balance, though. MMOs can only be fun when there's lots of people playing them, and lots of people don't want to play an "innovative" MMO that you or I would consider fun or good.

                        Basically, as long as it's solid and not an NC Soft grindfest (people getting to level 20 pretty easily from what I'm hearing in vent), I'm good.

                              • Not sure how it will age, but Rift is fun as ****. The rift and world events are incredibly fun. The game is more like Warhammer than WoW.
