in the mmo world! its so fascinating and i think the game mechanics are phenominal even for a beta! if this game was shipped now it would better than half the current 1 year+ mmos out now.

I do think that the Rifts add a whole new element to an MMO that most do not have. Nobody knows how the Rifts will continue to play out at the higher levels but if they scale right then yes I agree that Rift can be up there within a year.

Oh yeah by far it'd be better than any game so far if it shipped now i mean it already is and it's in it's beta stage still so when it ships i think it'll be the biggest online game for along time

This game looks amazing, although i have yet to play the beta. I really hope it is a contender and actually lasts so i can finally stop playing WoW.

If Trion keeps up the good work they have been doing, then yes I can see this game to be a major contender.

As long as they continue to listen to the feedback and keep up with the dynamic content they'll do great. The random rifts add an element of constant re playability that should last a while.

This will be the first MMO post WoW to not sink after the first month imo.

First off the amount of polish is supposed to be outstanding. Everyone agrees wholeheartedly that it's more polished than many games are at release or even 6 months post release. So they have that taken care of.

It also seems like they will have a lot of content right at the beginning. Which is another huge plus.

Lastly, it does enough to be unique but not to the point where it's unfamiliar. So people can fit right into the game. Everyone will also love the soul system and the Rift system.

The game will definitely be big.

I think Rift will do quite well, considering i know a few people are dissappointed with the MMO options available, and those soon to be available.

As for me, I had no desire to play wow after 4 yrs, and now Aion is getting boring after 9 months.

I agree. This game is intuitive and even the help messages were clear and concise in the beta. Very simple, this is this, this is that. Go.

Although, Rifts can either be the most amazing feature or they can be the biggest flop. I loved them for leveling but I found myself, I know at a low level, throwing out a lot of the rewards they gave us. Yes some are just meant to be placeholders til you get awesome stuff but still. And the thrill can get kind of old after a while possibly. Hopefully the large scale invasions will keep the game going. They may change how MMO's are made from this point on if they work though.

I am hoping this game does not become just about the equipment like WoW has turned into for some people.

one of the best things i see about this game is that it isnt too gimmicky. Aion was a giant gimmick, and that made it suck. that, and everything else. Even with the rift mechanic, Rift is a rather conventional fantasy, which is GOOD. its a place to get a predictable experience, to fulfill all those adventuring needs you have without being shoehorned into an unusual and unfamiliar world. i love chopping up goblins and ogres and the NOMRAL fantasy monsters. and i love the Rifts too. most games since WoW have been a pathetic little sandbox, and finally we might have something of broader scope and vision.

Rift wont be awesome; it already is.

I couldn't agree more. From the videos that I have seen and all the praise from the beta testers. It really looks like one great mmo.

I think the game is well designed and even better implemented. It will definitely have a large player base, of that I'm certain. It won't flop that's for sure. Whether or not it's a total advancement of the genre, I'm skeptical, but hey at least they didn't f*** it up.

The concept of the rifts is what I find most interesting. Every MMO that lasts develops what I call a dead core after a few years and a few expansions. All the core zones are abandoned as the content and drops have become outdated. Since the Rifts are dynamic, the mechanism is in place to keep all zones, and in particular the instanced dungeions viable through the life of the game. Imagine the first dungeon you hit during the game is still a place to visit when you are 50th level and beyond. That will be the biggest strength of this game in my opinion.

I think the fact that the company is a smaller company with less hype is a great thing for Rift. While the game may not initially receive as much publicity, a game this good won't be overlooked for long. The last beta phase was also possibly the most polished and smooth running I think I've seen this far from release.
