Rift last me till Tera? - Page 2  

post #11 of 67
I was itching for a MMO myself and I decided to play Rift. Its very polished even when it was in Beta. Its not very grindy since its an American game. (Unlike the Asian super grindy MMOs.) Its decent if you're just looking for a fix but I've yet to see what end game is like which will decide for me if I'm going to continue or just drop it.

I think that the MMO genre has reached a stagnant point.

Why do you think he then posted "From what I hear".

I love people posting opinions of games they haven't played.

Rift = WoW. Period. It's as close to WoW as you can get without being sued. Sure it has a different class system with the souls and whatnot. Put a dress on a turd, it's still a turd.

But if you love WoW, you'll like Rift a lot. For people like myself, galaxxy and others that got sick of that style of game where it's the same cookie cutter quests, same grind to max level style of play... it isn't worth the money and annoyances.

What's with the level of immaturity here? If somebody disagrees with your opinions, or doesn't like the games you like, they take personal shots at you, or make you seem like you are a moron. Just because I don't like the game, or style of game, doesn't render your enjoyment null and void.

TLDR; Grow up.

Once again, stopped reading after that sentence. Just cause you watched livestreams of people playing it, doesn't really mean much at all. I can watch livestreams as well of someone playing X game, it doesn't mean I know if it's a good game or not. Watching someone play a game doesn't mean much. If you've never played the game, then you don't really know how good or bad it is. Someone easily can watch it, say it's crap, but when they play it they don't think the game is half bad.

But you Still haven't played it

I can watch all the reviews,videos and tutorials on how to shoot a gun. It won't mean I will be any good at it until I try.

Actually you can.


If I spend 3 hours watching a livesteam of some guy running some instance, leveling up, and doing quests or whatever, I can get a HUGE amount of information on what the game is about.

Does it have the same Gather x / Kill x / Escort x quests as most MMOs? Check
Does it have the same endless grind to get gear? Check
Does it have the same style of play, same mechanics? Check
Does it have the same lackluster button mashing, unintuitive combat? Check
Does it have the same rush to max level before you can enjoy content? Check
Does it have the same Trinity for instances Tank/DPS/Healer requirements? Check (although done better than most games since you can have many versatile, easy to access builds within your class)


Unless you are some kind of moron - when you see that in a game, don't like that sort of thing in a game, you can quickly deduce that it isn't the game for you.

So if you can answer that top line with a yes, then it is quite possibly the best on the market for you.

Do not forget to consider Rift's Ascended Soul System. It is actually more forgiving and freer than most other MMO class systems. For example, it allows Rogues to tank, while mages can actually now heal. In addition to being enjoyable to toy around with, this class system helps make assembling teams a lot easier.

Definintely a plus for Rift, and it would be considered unique if the Soul system consisted of something more than 3 talent trees with core abilities attached.

apparently that makes wow a clone of how many mmos before it.

Take a hike man. You have no evidence to back up any of your claims, and plenty of people here who have played it have all given counter points to your idiocy.

Actually you're the first to respond to my apt post, laying it out in simple English so thick-headed, stubborn, ignoramuses such as yourself can understand. If my detailed list of reasons and examples isn't enough for you, then I'm sorry lol. It isn't even limited to what I've listed. The UI, the party system, the spell system, EVEN THE KEYBINDINGS! ALL THE SAME!

And yeah, WoW copied EQ and every other game before it yada yada, but not to the extent Rift copies WoW. They even referenced WoW in their ad campaign saying "We're not in Azeroth anymore". If you wanted to differentiate yourself, why even mention WoW in that manner? There are a bunch of funny youtube videos highlighting the hilarious similarities between the two games.

If you cannot see how Rift is a perfect WoW clone plus some different bells and whistles, then you are either in denial, or blind. But why is that a bad thing for you? If you like Rift, why does my opinion irk you so much? Your opinion should be all that matters to you.

People like WoW, people like Rift. Some people don't. So what? Doesn't bother me any. Seems to bother you a great deal if people dissent to your opinions however, with name calling and inane comments. So I will respond to you in kind, as that is all you can seem to relate to.
