Except that PWE is a horrid company with insanely bad customer support. insanely expensive cash shops...
PerfectWorld was a pretty shotty of a game, even for its time, but it was the company that made it a readful pick. Just like Gpotato PWE is a company notorious for ripping off its player base.
Probably one of the worst reputations of the kMMO market.

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.
I love what TERA has done to go free to play, I have absolute mad respect for bluehole and enmasse for how they handled free to play transition.
That game was legit awesome for that. I liked how they handled it so much I went and dropped 20$ for a digital copy and a weaponskin the day it went f2p to show my "support."
I support good business models, and dangit TERA did it right, so proud of how far the kMMO market has come.

I didnt ask anything about Wow clones, if u wanna go this way u can make a new topic and discuss your debat there.
Please dont do this!
I like Rift because it actualy gives people a crapload of contents worth for there monthly fee's
Im simply asking for other people who are interested to play this great game with me
Dont bother with Star wars unless u plan on paying the monthly fee's
As for everquest, i dont like action MMO's where u have to aim , i like classic gameplay Heck i even love Turn based RPGs but no crap like Everquest or Tera, Vindictus or any other Action MMo thats out there are no my cup of tea.
Vindi was an amazing game just for what it was, forget mmo, Vindictus is amazing for its clever use of mouse look combat mechanics and its insane skill caps.
It was pretty great as game stand alone by itself, but it did have some mmo elements in it that made it less of a single player game.
It reminded me so much of the N64/PS2 days where games had a whole bunch of hidden stuff and "after the credits" game play, stuff that made you actually get good at the game. Then it has so much completionist stuff in it you could spend months just doing that.
I loved vindictus more for what it was as a game, and not much as an MMORPG.
RIFT is ok... But it doesn't hold a candle to WoW because its based on the same formulas and it doesn't impress people like me who played more MMOs than they can remember they have avatars in.
Its ok, Trion is a good company that has good direction. but WoW takes its place as the better game in my eyes, because if what it shows me in value and game play content. that's just me, you can think differently that's alright.
