I've been following this game since it was called Heroes of Telara, and was lucky enough to be in first closed beta.
I'm an experienced gamer and beta tester, with a different perspective due to advanced age (54) and the fact that I'm female to boot. Oh, and from the UK (a Scot, no less).
What more can I say? I'm not great at being witty on paper, unfortunately (my son would probably add, not so hot irl either), so how about a bit of pathos? It's December, cold and gloomy, the recession bites deeper and my depression hangs over me like a dark cloud. The only ray of sunshine I can imagine is the one in the shape of a VIP key for Rift.
Like previous posters, I think it's absurd to post saying "gotta have", "need this key", "gimme,gimme,gimme" or any other variation, but at the same time it's rather humbling to realise how this simple strategy by Trion (make they keys difficult to get) does seem to stimulate something in the old brain. I'd like to think I'm above it all, but here I am posting and hoping, so what can I say?
