For people who have played the second Beta this past weekend.
How did everyone like it? I personally thought it was amazing. There on some things that they have to tweek but overall it was a solid smoothing running game.

Honestly? This is the sort of quality you'd see in most mmo's immediately after release, not in closed beta. The few bugs I found were minor, and the whole thing feels like a fully functional mmo. Of course, there's still a lot to test, and I'm not sure how much work they've put into class balancing yet, but if they keep up the standard they've been setting this is gonna be a helluva game.

As has been said by many, the build quality continues to be amazing. I've played many games post-release that were significantly buggier and less mature. That said, we have only seen the newbie areas, so it could be that all the 21-50 content is a mess. I hope not, but I've seen some really dirty pool from other game companies as far as that goes.

One reason that I have a bit more confidence about the 21+ content is their ability to competently make changes quickly. The number of changes based on feedback between Beta1 and Beta2 is amazing. The fact that they could patch in changes Friday night based on feedback (and I'm sure data logging) from earlier in the day and not mess everything up is just mind boggling.

As for my opinions of the gameplay, I have said it before and I will say it again: Rift isn't my mythical "perfect MMO" but the Rifts and Invasions are amazing enough that I can ignore everything that's less than ideal to me :)

I got a chance to try it, and really enjoyed my brief time in Telara. I only reached level 9 (I know, slacker), but the newbie zone was really well done. The lore is darker than I'd expected, but the gameplay was smooth and the quests really well done. I enjoyed the lore a lot. Right when I logged off enemies started coming in groups and invasions were happening, but I didn't get a chance to deal with much of it. Hopefully I'll get to play again, as I had a lot of fun!

Luckily I was randomly selected with my regular key to try out beta phase2.

For the first time playing the game I was very impressed with it. In its 2nd closed beta the game handled stress, didn't crash, quests were functional, plentiful and easy to understand. I wasn't forced to grind any amount of EXP off due to lack of quests, I always had someplace to go.

Hoping I can be selected next phase and test some PvP!

I would tell you my opinion on it but it would just be repeating what has already been said.
