Maybe a small portion they burrowed from other previous MMOs but overall it is most definitely original, and Rift feels like a copy and paste to me.
No, 99% of the story was from their own games.

Every other aspect of the game had been done before by someone else, they paved the way in a few departments, but it still wasn't original. You must have very little MMO experience, otherwise you would have known this. Not one of the mechanics of wow is original at all... Zero.

Why? Because blizzard doesn't have another mmo, so how could they have possibly taken any of it from themselves?

Just ran out of keys when I hit 14 hours. Annoying.

I liked Rift a lot. Versatile classes. Interesting dynamic events. Though I found raiding a bit too mechanic heavy. Running Curse in the background is a must.

I played WoW in 04 when it came out, 2 days after my Birthday, or maybe 2 days before. I've played so many MMOs in the past, starting with Ultima, I can tell you for a fact playing WoW was unlike anything I've played before; that's why I played it for so many years.
Just because you havn't played much MMO's, doesn't mean WoW didn't copy.

Everquest, DAOC, AO were out way before WoW. If you played those before WoW, you would know that WoW was nothing special for the MMO genre.

The only reason it was so successful is because it was made by Blizzard, widely known for Starcraft and Diablo which were HUGE at the time ( They still are today, but online games were still growing back then and SC, Diablo 2, Warcraft 3 along with CS were the top online games at the time )

Blizzard basically made the MMO known to the masses. That doesn't mean they didn't copy..

So, it says they no longer have keys and says "MISSED" near the top of the page. Does this mean they aren't going to get any more keys in?

Does any of you know if they restock keys? I just got my hours but they have none left ;(
post #17 of 40
Some times they do, others they don't. Guess it just depends if they can get more keys.

Honestly, Rift *is* the closest thing you've find to a "WoW clone" (and yes, as others have already clued you in to, WoW was a total clone, itself - just not of a single game), but I think they did a better job with it (though admittedly I haven't had a chance to check out raiding). Beyond the same old "kill x mobs" and FedEx quests that all MMORPG's apparently must have these days, Rift excels in practically every area over WoW. The graphics are better, the sound is better and the dynamic rift events are pretty cool.
