post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i posted this on my Gamingclans website : DoubleDutchclan.nl

But sinds its a MMOrpg and it doesnt matter if u cant speak dutch i stil like to meet/gather people to start playing this game!


I have played this game before and i loved it, just not very fond of the monthly payments anymore ... Hence why i stopped playing.
But now its going free to play and it looks like in a good way!!



I want to start over with new people smile.gif make this a fun RPG to play together!!

I dont have much els to add , just reply and let me know biggrin.gif

Any questions, or maybe we can use the recruit a friend system to get some starting benefits , etc thumb.gif



Greetings

Don't mean to be a mood killer here but this game is a shameless wow ripoff.
I played both game's starter editions side by side and they are so similar its not even funny.
But Wow did a lot of things better especially game quality.

I played both games side by side and ended up playing WoW because it was so much better. Rift's game play really just got boring because it lacked that gripping element and it really was just a shameless wowclone.

I don't have much interest in it because wow is just a whole hell of a lot better. I wish people would stop copycatting wow like it will make them money.

As much as I agree with you, of two very similar games most people will go with the f2p one. I may even give it another chance, Wow just costs to much when you don't have many hours to sink into it.

Low level gameplay is very different from end-level gameplay in MMORPG titles. Rift when I played it was far far better than WOW, as a raider and someone who really loves pvp.

As much as people love to say this, most games have some devitation from the general model, but it doesn't change that the core of the game is so similar that it wasn't interesting to me. The lore and storylines were just a drag, where as the WoW ones felt compelling. It was the wow lore and experiences that really made me want to keep on seeing wow, but rift failed to capture.
I mean even TERA did a better job at pulling people in, and it has terrible basis, but it was at least compelling in a way that it actually got me to play.

those castanics man...wow... Probably one of my favorite RPG/fantasy races of all time. they are amazing.
But RIFT was a shameless wow clone, but it lacked what made WoW compelling.

Only issue I have to contest is "better for PVP" because i'd prefer a game that's far more balanced and has a competitive installed user base scene over a game that's loosing its players and probably has much less balance for pvp.
I personally hope to see guild wars 2's pvp competitive scene start because it has a system build for balance and spectating.
I gotta say for pvp wow is a better game at least for the fact that they have whole teams dedicated to balancing it, especially for competitive play.

I gotta disagree because I used to be like that.

I played F2P MMOs for 7+years before picking up wow. now I casually play wow and drop money freely on wow subs because theres insanely better value in that then there is in most F2P games.
Problem with F2P is their stupid cash shops and how much money you have to sink into some of them.

Like with GW2, I love how little if at all cash shop even matters. I mean its so limited that there's almost nothing serious you can really buy, but other games like TERA and SWTOR and I bet you rift is going to do the same, make that cash shop a money sink...


I'm an old school mmo player that went to wow because she was sick of the cash shop crap, and well once you get sick of the f2p crap you look at wow's subfee like its nothing. Cause it really is notihng.

especially if you pick up wow and its expansions on sale. Battlechest was 10$ 2weeks ago that's all the way up to wrath and 1 month of game time for 10$
WoW is really cheap compared to all these cash shop crap games.
That's why cash shop games make more money for their populations.

And I'm probably the opposite now. Coming from years of playing p2p mmos, I've now just switched over to casually playing the f2p ones. Played FFXI for 6 years nearly. WoW for almost 4 (glad I quit, got so bored) RIFT, TERA, both before going f2p, gotta love getting legacy benefits. I don't find ANY mmo currently out worth the sub fee.

Most of the p2p mmos have just turned to crap. FFXI went stupidly easy and ruined everything I loved about it. WoW has almost done the same. SWTOR killed itself going f2p, their model is horrendus. TERA has managed the best f2p model imo, where everything you can buy is cosmetic, or boosts, or extra mounts. Nothing in the shop is needed to actually progress through the game. There a lot of f2p games out that have ridiculous cash shops, and I tend to ignore those, unless I can still have fun in the game.
