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.

Great u played the starter edition and now u know everything about the game, please move your nonsence to another topic!!
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 thumb.gif

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.

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.

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.

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. smile.gif

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.

imo I think Wrath of the Lich King just killed the MMO genre completely (at least for me)

all the changes/additions to make the game easier and streamlined ruined the sense of community. Automatic que-ing for everything, pug-able raids, eventually que's for raids as well, que's for BG's anywhere

as nice as they were, they just spoiled everyone. Now everyone expects to faceroll through heroics and raids with absolutely no problems, otherwise "this group sucks", people give up on BG's if they aren't in a winning position within 2 minutes, nobody communicates for groups anymore and just sits in a que

there was no need to actually communicate and build a community anymore. everything could be arranged for you with the LFG system. when you remove the community aspect of an MMO - it's just a boring experience

I went from vanilla->TBC->WotLK->SWTOR (until first content patch)->quit MMO's for good. I really liked many features of SWTOR, but it didn't matter how good or bad I thought it was - there was absolutely no sense of community playing the game. without a LFG system, people just complained and gave-up within minutes of...god forbid...actually talking and looking for people to run an instance. That was when I realized MMO's as a genre were dead (to me)

then GW2 came out and seemed promising from reviews, but I just remind myself of the above. anytime I see an MMO now, I just think about this

idk why I bothered to type that up - I guess i'm wondering if others felt the same

That' sucks. I dunno what I'd be playing without MMOs and MOBA's. I've been playing them for so long its unreal.
I was always more of a solo player in MMOs and spent more time really attending to the way my characters looked and played rather than PVP or socializing.
Everyone plays differently though.

What kinda games do you dabble in now?

I might pick up rift and make a max level avatar. might as well right?

I used to be the same - wow and dota(1) all day, everyday - mostly wow

I don't see how you could enjoy mostly solo play. it sounds fun in concept, but after a few minutes, I'd give up. nothing is really structure for solo-play anymore (especially pvp - played a hunter). bg's a zerg-fest, which becomes impossible or mindless when the losing team gives up 3 minutes in. best gear required arena, but because the community aspect is gone - every arena partner is just thinking every mistake that you make "sigh this guy is trash, I can find better"

now I'm just mostly dota2, bf3, and skyrim (along with a ton of games waiting from the steam summer sale). I'm starting to enjoy the solitude of single player games now

Rift has gotten a bad repp , its a whole lot better then people think it is. Wow fan boy shouting ITS A CLONE!!!

different company , different game, Heck i like This game better and i have my reasons. havent seen end game of rift but im working on that:rolleyes: AFter if have seen Rifts End-game i can finaly compare it to WoW. But so far Rift is scoring better for me


Also doesnt it seem to be a bit unfair to compare a game that has been patching for more then 5 year to a game that has done this only 1 year.
I know the competition is brutal but give them a chance..... u wont regret it thumb.gif

I play for my Avatars.
My avatars are a reiteration of myself in a certain way.
each one has a little bit of a personality to her self, in a meaningful way.

I don't like other people much, but ill play with people, but I don't have friends that play the same games.
I play the games for the love of the avatars I've made.
