I am just kind of disappointed its a straight up rip of a game I quit 2 weeks ago.
If you like it that's cool.
I'll agree with raidyr to be honest slightly. I wanted to like it but just felt like I've done everything before so It was just impossible to enjoy it.
Then again I seem to get bored of MMOs faster and faster with new releases.
One plus I'll give this is that from what I played up to (lv25) It is nicely polished, runs nice and looks pretty nice visually.
Regardless, this game plays similar to WoW, but it isn't WoW. I've played WoW since release, and the way that they have homogenized classes to the point where they aren't even remotely different anymore is what makes this game a much needed breath of fresh air. You can really determine what you're character turns out like, instead of the three classes in WoW, which are Tank, Heals, and DPS.
Pre-ordered this for release :D
I hope you enjoy it though
You should probably try out the 20 other classes.
Though I have not got to play the game yet. :(
is it wrong i like it for that? :ohdear: Mostly the same keybinds, same dungeon feel, same sort of classes, just mixed and matched with slight different playfeels, battlegrounds are easy to understand etc.
And then you know, the target rings below the characters remind me nolstalgicly of LOTRO, the Rifts remind me of Warhammer and some of the armour items remind me of AoC.
That and it runs REALLY REALLY well and looks pretty. :3:
Any other VIP's not got their email yet?
I haven't gotten mine.
I got into the BETA, time ago. It was fucking awesome.
I haven't gotten mine yet either and I'm VIP.
I'm getting nervous about not getting the invite and it starts tomorrow. |:
Yup, no email here neither, im just hoping they ditched it and we dont need it. or something :ohdear:
Just asked my friend on Skype and he said he got an e-mail. He even read it to me. ]:
F5F5F5 *Hammers email* Actually, time to check the forums.
What the hell makes this worth 15 dollars a month? That's half the monthly cost of my 20mbps internet connection.
Adds up for me personally.
What the;- my Gmail account got an invite, but not my VIP account yet.
1: Payments over an increment of time (Monthly is the most common)
2: Micro-transactions (pay 2 dollars and get a helm, shit like that)
3: Tiered releases (think guild wars, most new content will have to be bought)
It's basically choose your poison.
Got my email woot
nothing here yet
When I try updating it, it says download file failed to execute. Can you only patch it on beta day or something?
Used an amazon gift card of $45. Pre ordered for $5 with release date shipping!
I still haven't gotten mine...
Me neither :ohdear: its making me nervous
They said some will go out tonight and some will go out tomorrow mid event.
I'm not too bothered about playing in the betas myself, for once this is a game that I don't want to spoil for myself. The only thing I really want to try is PvP and some of the instances so I don't go in completely blind at launch.
Ah well, im considering changing faction at launch anyway, so thats a bit of a non issue.
Crazy as it sounds, i just want to know my next fix is secured.
Your character gets wiped after Beta anyway so it was always a non-issue, surely? I won't be able to play the Beta today in any case as it starts literally the exact same time as my raid on WoW this evening, bloody American time zones :sigh:.
Finally got my e-mail! :D
but im bored :smith: and every other MMO isn't holding my attention, every rift beta so far has been a sleepless two days of fun, frolicking and fraternising
Got my invite
tomorrow is going to be a great day. putting my new computer together and RIFT.
This just looks... generic.
Like there's no hook or anything original at all. The world seems just that generic fantasy setting. Classes are the typical 'Melee/MeleeWithHiding/Caster/Healer' blandness. Pvp isn't anything new. Gameplay looks same as every other mmo out there.
Races are beyond bland, can they really not think of anything other than elves and dwarves?
The 'souls' thing seems somewhat interesting, but won't make the game fun.
This doesn't make it any less boring.
