    I don't get people saying that it's a WoW or Guild Wars or whatever clone. According to you EVERY MMO is a WoW clone. The developers are trying to make a successful game for us to enjoy, so what if it took elements from another game. You shouldn't look at that. Look at the end product, APB was as original as it gets, did that game become successful, no. Don't confuse originality with quality.

    I agree with you on this point but at the same time it's a sad turn of events. APB was trying to be innovative sadly it sucked, which is going to scare other Publishers from backing a game that isn't guaranteed to make them some money.

    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.
    The classes are bland? Considering there are 32 classes(souls) and you can combine three of them at once. Yeah definitely bland.

    I wouldn't say any other MMO is a WoW clone, except Rift, Warhammer Online (in its current state) and Runes of Magic.

    Yep. 37 Minutes. It's the only reason I went to bed at a reasonable hour last night. Every time a Defiant calls a Guardian by their faction name I can't help but think of Megabyte.

    quick question

    i've got a intel dual core 3.06 GHz processor, 4 gigs of ram and an Nvidia GeForce 9400.

    i thought i could run this game well, but i'm getting like 10-15 fps on lowest settings. :-/
    anyone else have anything they disable/enable to make it run better?


    with low quality rendering, i can run everything that i can enable at max with no problem.
    weird but i guess it'll have to do if i can't do anything else

    I got into the beta and downloaded the client so I could be prepared. Started it up and it's making me redownload everything. 2.50gb done, only 5gb to go. :smithicide:
    On a side note, how long should it take to finish that objective to enter that contest for a GPU? Keeping in mind that this is the first RIFT beta I've tried.

    For everyone that hasnt been in beta since the start or p1-3, Dont troll or talk in world chat. All it is, is Bull shit and people bitching ab out WoW, and also dont bring this bullshit on the forums aswell.

    Edited:

    Thank you and this is just a warning to the newer people in the beta

    Got my dude to level 10, I just feel like the game needs something to keep me playing.
    Rifts and cities getting attacked is quite fun, but only for a short time.

    I'm loving this, the Bull's Charge ability is pretty much the most fun Charge ability in any MMO ever. The visual effect alone is just awesome.

    After about 4 hours of straight play I think I can say that it's awesome
    If the monthly sub is affordable for me I may just pick it up.

    The whole reason I rolled a Warrior is because someone told me that you unlock the Heroic Leap style ability with them, later I find out that it's a Bahami racial so I've had to re-roll :saddowns:

    Damn it, just read the beta FAQ and found out that you lose your characters when the full game comes out. I was getting so attached to my character too. :smith:

    I sleep fine, since I don't have to worry about when the beta days are to be able to play Rift. :smug:

    I'm on the Omega server.

    Since I no longer see a reason to have a high levelled character in the beta since it'll just get deleted eventually, I shall take this beta period as a chance to try every class to pick my perma-character for the full game. vv

    marksman/ranger/riftstalker sound good?

    first character that i got to level 16 was destroying in pve and pvp with the planar tunic and bow
    looked like a derp so i made a new one and decided to be full ranged with riftstalker for survivability and for the teleports

    Did they optimize this yet? It ran like shit on my intel core 2 quad @ 2.9GHz, 4gb DDR2 ram, AMD 6870 1GB. It was a great game, but it ran like shit.

    They fixed it (and added AA) as far as I know. I was running at around 15 FPS no matter what setting I was on before, now I run at 30 FPS in highest and 50+ fps on lowest.

    Started playing it, and for some reason I am really enjoying it. The combat is similar to World of Warcraft, but it is actually entertaining in this.
