Well, this is my first beta event for Rift so I have nothing prior to compare it to. However, I love it so far. Initially I was a tad thrown by a few bits in the interface, which I won't go into detail over, but it's been very interesting thus far. Unfortunately, someone on my server has figured out how to hack the game..I didn't know their name so I can't report them, but that was the rumor going around in general. Otherwise it's been loads of fun, runs pretty smoothly, fantastically polished for being a closed beta (though of course we know these betas are about stress testing and advertising than actual aesthetics).
