I am a experienced MMO player myself, I have been playing since I could hardly type, lol. And Rift takes my thrill to a whole new level! I have so far been in only one beta event, and could not get enough of the game, I'd love a VIP key to keep up with the game. With my experience not many new MMO's can compare to some of the huge ones, (such as WoW, EQ2, blah blah blah). But there is still hope for our games yet! Rift is one of those upcoming epics, no doubt!
