Will you be Purchasing RIFT?Follow

Title says it all, but please add a poll

based off of what you've seen, will you be purchasing and paying monthly to be playing rift?




I will start first: I gave this game a fair chance, and sadly it was not unique enough to be considered worth my time/money.

granted it was fun. but this was for a day of playing... I can't imagine doing this for more levels.

please do not try to persuade me, but rather tell me and the forums whether or not you will be purchasing and why.


love,
UncleTony

    I will be purchasing this game. Yes, it is not the most unique game. I believe the reason you don't see more unique ideas out of the gate is because they need to spend all their time and money making the established formulas work perfectly before they can move on. But I did have a lot of fun with it in the first two betas, and I can only imagine it getting better as I get to higher level content. I believe that the developers are very hands on with the community and the game will continue to evolve and get better and more unique.

    I do want to say that the Souls system and Rift invasions are very unique and are something that no other game has done before. Unique enough to hold my interest enough to purchase the game.

    Yes, I will be purchasing and subscribing to Rift. I have played WoW for years and I see Rift as a well done improvement on all of the best aspects of a fantasy based mmo. Plus the addition of the dynamic content makes for a solid win in my book.

    Yes, I will be buying the collectors edition and paying for a 6month sub.

    Let me say I have been in many beta's and none are as stable as Rift. IMO there is nothing AWESOME about Rift currently, but if the game company was smart enough to work on the foundation first then everything else I feel they will have no problem making content.


    Most MMOs released do not have end game finished yet. If you are a power gamer 70+ hours a week then you will more than likely hit 50 and be bored.

    I am kind of stingy when it comes to MMO's but this game should be able to hold my interest for a while.ocky

    I still have not seen any prices anywhere. But I am strongly considering buying it. I am looking forward to the dynamic content and an audience that has as much experience as me rather than five years of playing under their belt. I know due to similarities there will still be people who are cocky or will know the best builds right away and look down on me but a majority won't.

    I can't wait.

    I have not been one of the lucky beta people, so all I have to go on is the trailer. What I/we(3 gamers in my family(wife and son) and 10 or so would come over from our guild on ddo) have been looking for would take the good of WoW and DDO and make one game. What DDO has is excellent quest and character build options that are almost unlimited, and they(ddo) are bringing new content quarterly, what ddo lacks is factions, pvp that matters at all, which is really huge for most people, Wow has great pvp and factions just the fact it looks so cartoon like and that 2mill people will be running around with same gear and same class same traits weighs to much on the negative for any of us to play. I think if Rift offers a trial I will definatley try it. Otherwise will wait to read or until one of my guildies gives me a report on it. If I jump in, its 3 subs and 3 game purchases, so its small investment. hopefully Rift will be what we are looking for.

    I assumed the next MMO that I would buy would be SWTOR, but after playing in Beta1 and 2 I'm pretty set to buy Rift.

    I've yet to play the beta, but I have 2 friends who have. Based on their trusted feedback and the overall impression i get from the game off Youtube videos and the website itself, I will definately be purchasing this game,

    After participating in Beta 2 (Thanks to ZAM =), I will definitely be buying Rift when it comes out. They have, like Blizzard before them, taken the best ideas of the MMORPG genre and have polished them, improved them, and have made them their own. I love the soul system and at a time when Blizzard has locked down the few trees they had preventing people from having multi-specs, Trion brings the freedom to be what you want to be. Want to be a cleric tank, or a rogue off-healer, no problem. More of that please. I can't wait to give Trion my money.

    Yep, I will be purchasing it. Like most said here it doesnt really break any new ground but it is extremely solid and the biggest reason for me purchasing it is the dev team. I've never seen a team that is more responsive and "professional" ( ie their fixes work the first time). I'll definately give them the benefit of the doubt

    Yes I will be purchasing RIFT along with better graphics cards and a better computer to make it all the more exciting because so far I see RIFT as an amazing game I mean even now they did a new update where you can play as necromancer I think It's new because I read the mage classes 10 times and that just popped up but anyways it will be progressing and getting better with new characters and new levels and storys

    first, do not judge a title during CB. a lot of stuff are place holders, and the main course has not arrived yet.

    secondly, do some research on the dev team + follow their responsiveness to players suggestions.

    personally, I think that if the devs are from asia , you can kiss the game goodbye, cause they do not give a **** about us westerners. for ex: NcFail and Aion = enough said.
    this dev team is not Asian , and seem to be pretty responsive to the testers. and that’s a good start for this game.
    we will judge it according to the above , only after OB arrives. then we will have a good picture about it.

    BTW, the second beta for me was non-playable due to 100k ms ping . almost all of my local buddies were getting this, and we did not get any response from the devs.
    hopefully beta 3 will be ok for us, otherwise , this title will burnout fast in my country.

    ooh, and they MUST improve combat animation = even WOW has a better one.

    I came late to the party and have not had the opportunity to participate in any Beta phase. Darn real life... :)

    However, I have really spent a lot of time pouring through the endless Dev Posts, Fansites, and the Wiki and I am really intrigued by the path Rift appears to be taking. I agree with an earlier poster that it appears Rift is trying to take the best aspects of WoW and other highly-popular MMORPG's and not just copy the features but take them to the next level. At the moment I expect I will purchase the game, but I would really enjoy the opportunity to try the beta to ensure that Rift is the best match for my gaming personality.

    Yes, I will be purchasing Rift.

    I admit I was somewhat disappointed playing Rift the first day or 2 of Beta1. The soul system was interesting, but not enough to sell me. The quests were fairly bland and not terribly memorable, in fact I hardly read them and just played the quests through the minimap. The crafting system was there, but nothing inspiring. The rifts and invasions were minorly interesting, but honestly didn't seem like they were anything more than generic PQs that could spawn in a random place. It was interesting enough for me to continue to give them a chance, but nothing had hooked me.

    Then I got to Sunday of Beta1 and suddenly they had dramatically increased the invasion rate. I saw invaders for the first time. I saw quest hubs being attacked. I saw the possibilities of rift invasions and leveling through rift hunting. For the first time I really saw what felt like a good mechanic in an overland MMO to bring people together rather than the whack-a-mole quest hubs which encourage soloing. I was hooked.

    The Zone Event in Beta2 just brought everything to the next level for me. It wasn't anything I was expecting and it just blew my mind.

    About the only thing that will stop me from buying Rift is if GW2 actually lives up to all of it's hype and has a release date within 1 month of Rift :)

    Yes definately, they are doing a fantastic job of listening to player feedback and implementing changes. They IMHO could add some immersiveness which I'm sure they will and i would also like to see a Warhammer esque grouping mechanic especially when encountering Rift mobs, it was quick ,easy and highly effective grouping mechanic. But yes just point me to the pre-order page I'm impressed.

    I'm buying it. In fact, since the "preorders" were announced yesterday (12-28-2010) and revealed all the cool things with the collector's edition, I'll be stopping by Gamestop today to place my order. Just checked Gamestop's website and it looks like they're taking orders on the game starting today (12-29-10) and the CE price is $79.99. GS also shows a tentative release date of March 1st. Anyway, I find the game entertaining and fun and I to like the involvement that the devs have with their game and how fast they try to fix the issues. Plus, I keep thinking that I'm going to get tired of rift hopping but I haven't yet and I assume that it will only get better!

    I'll most likely be buying it. I don't need massive innovation or something "totally new" to enjoy an MMO. WoW got old and stale for me after a few years of playing and FFXIV disappointed on a great many levels. To see a new MMO coming out that borrows heavily from things I liked about WoW and puts their own spin on it in ways that sound like great fun is enough for me. All the reviews out of beta that I've read say that the game is impressing people for the right reasons. Sure, I'll preorder and prepay for a Rift CE and if it disappoints after a few months I'll find something else. I'm happy to throw a few bucks at a developer the demonstrates a passion for creating a fun experience and so far Trion has done that. Whether or not that passion translates into the kind of gaming experience I'm looking for is yet to be seen, but someone has to be one of the first through the gates on launch day or all the leeches waiting on free trials and buddy passes won't have anywhere to go :P

    I most likely won't be, the game is in a great state, it's very polished but I was bored after a couple of hours..it could just be me though, maybe I'm growing tired of the genre. Guild Wars 2 looks different enough and graphically it's a joy to look at, if that disappoints me not sure what the future holds.

    I took part in Beta3, and enjoyed myself enough to buy the game and a 3-6 month sub. Its something new, and there is a lot out there that none of us has seen yet. The only things I wish we had were more race options. Im a big fan of unique characters, and was happy to see the dye vendor in Meridian. I dont know what the future plans are from Trion, but if they added a few more races for each faction, I think that would please a lot of people.

    But yes, I will purchase the game and a sub, and I fully expect to enjoy myself however long I play Rifts!

    I only played 1 beta event, and I enjoyed it alot. I'll most likely be purchasing the game, but I won't make my decision just yet. I still have some things to do in game, and test certain parts of the game we can't test yet (such as the warfronts).

    But so far it looks very promising, and if Trion keeps up the good work, I'll buy it.

    I'm seriously considering it.

    Beta #4 is done and I really enjoyed it. I hope they add another beta...just to help me make up my mind. :P

    I play FFXIV, and while there are flaws there, I'm invested in it because of friends and history. And I really do enjoy my time there, crafting and gathering are definitely my thing. But I can't afford 2 subscriptions! At least, not now. Maybe after April and my wedding is done.

    I purchased it already. It didn't take me long to decide either. I have very realistic expectations, which tends to make me sound negative when opining on the game here, and beta 4 has reinforced those opinions.

    Rift has thus far been a solid game. A friend initially informed me about the game by calling it a WoW clone--extremely overused as a pejorative, but meh. The OP has stated "and sadly it was not unique enough to be considered worth my time/money." Coincidentally it is almost those same reasons that make me consider the game very worth my time and money.

    Rift isn't special or unique in any of its fundamental mechanics. Quest grinding has been done, Rifts have been done, its soul system has been done before. But most MMORPGs that are advertised heavily as unique are awful, terrible games. Most often what makes them unique is neither interesting nor functional--it is merely different. Secondly, while many games can have an interesting and successful element, problems in other areas of the game cause it to be overall a terrible experience. Having a really fun and interesting combat system does nothing for a game if the UI is clunky and the classes are bland and simple.

    So far, what has made me like Rift the most is that I can't find anything wrong with it yet. I look at other MMORPG and I see elements about the game that I like and feel have been done better than in Rift, but I also see elements that have been executed far, far more poorly. I'd rather eat a granola bar than a piece of half-chocolate-half-****.

    I couldn't place the actual words myself but this is exactly how I feel. Even with video games in general. They either try to do everything perfect and something falls behind or they focus too much on their selling point and ignore everything else about the game.

    There are few games that do everything well. Nothing necassarily stands out as Amazing!!! but nothing sticks out as 'blech did you really think you could get away with that' either. It is a good game all around.

    Although personally I think the rifts are pretty cool. I am not sure who else did them and on what scale but they are definitely a change of pace from other things I have seen. This is the first game (that I've seen) where having guards at the gates makes sense. They aren't just there for show, story, and end game PvP. They are there to defend the town from the world.

    I will def be pre-ordering this game. I just have to figure out from where.

    I know Warhammer did it before Rift; they were called Public Quests. I think Warhammer did originate the idea, but I am not fully certain. Regardless, it was a great idea then, and is a great idea now.

    While there are definitely similarities between Rifts and PQs, I am considering Rifts and the invasion technology something new in the MMO world, and something that I think is a great addition to the landscape.

    PQs and Rifts are both scripted, and they both give you rewards based on your contribution to taking down the enemies if you are grouped or not. Both PQs and Rifts encourage random people in the area to group up for better rewards and better chance of success. However, PQs were in a set location and ran through a set script. Once you beat it once you had a good idea on how to beat it again. Don't get me wrong, they are a lot of fun, and a great idea which is at the basis of Rifts and invasions.

    Where Rifts and invasions really bring something new is their ability to spawn in random places and at random times. This may not seem like a lot, but I wouldn't be surprised if there is a lot of tech behind the rifts and invasions, and it really does change the feel of the game a lot. After playing Beta1 I've really been hooked and had a problem going back to play any other MMO.

    Back on topic: Yah, I'm hooked. I've been hooked. I preordered on 12/28 when Amazon first started accepting preorders :)

    I hesitate for only one reason: time. In college I had plenty of time to play games. Now with a 9-5, plus researching and reviewing games for ZAM, I find that any time I have free is taken up with friends or my girlfriend. I still have an active subscription in WoW, but I hardly have time to play these days. I just received Oblivion for Christmas (yay old games) but I've put maybe 10 hours into it. I still have Minecraft eating up time when I feel creative. If I add in Rift, I'll definitely have to cancel at least WoW.

    The game is fun, and solid. There are things I believe should be improved, but they probably will be if Trion's track record so far is any indication (they seem to take the best concepts and either use or improve them). Being in the game right from the get-go seems like a great idea. I just need to finish my human cloning project to make a separate me devoted solely to gaming first Smiley: grin

    May...be.
    After 3+ years in FFXI, a bit more than that in WoW, the alpha thru beta of FFXIV and a quick crash & burn three wks after release, I can definitely say...maybe lol.
    Maybe getting burned out on mmo's in general, dunno. It does sound pretty good tho, I'll be checking the forums.

    They have endgame content ready to go. I feel like I heard 2 raids and all instances have an expert version. Don't take my word on exact what the count is but they definetily have endgame content ready for whatever tests it needs to go through.

    Already bought and paid for.

    In beta this game beats about 90% of the MMO that have been live for years. The only complaint I have about the game at this moment is that it isn't March 1st yet.

    And the short beta events have basically ruined WoW for me, it would be like having a weekend love affair in Vegas with Sienna Miller, and on Monday going home to Rosie O'Donnell. So being -30 outside, I have nothing to do till next beta........................

    While the game does look very well done and fun, I am going to wait at least a month before I decide on whether I'll play. That way I'll have a chance to see if the game lives up to the hype and I'll get to skip all the emergency maintenances & other stuff associated with game launches.

    I didn't see anything throughout beta 4 that would indicate there are going to be any significant problems at release. It did seem that they shut down some of the major zone events early because things weren't working quite as they might have anticipated but it's not like I was twiddling my thumbs waiting for those events to start for lack of other things to do. Maybe my standards were forcibly adjusted downwards with FFXIV but I had a ton of fun in beta 4, I'm looking forward to beta 5, and so far I've yet to see Trion fall short in any significant category. With the head start launch tentatively scheduled to begin on Feb. 24th, I'm squared away with my preorder and the only thing I have left to decide is whether to go Guardian or Defiant.

    I have already bought rift and subscribed. This is exactly what i was looking for in a MMO, and the Development team seems determined not to make the same mistakes blizzard and sony have made before. I love that the classes are not completely balanced. I love that you can have totly diferant game expierances with differant classes. In wow they made every class too much the same, the only differance was the order you mashed the buttons. All I hope is that they dont change the game everytime somone whines. "whaaaa, so and so's class is Op'd....... they do sooooooo much more dammage than mine" I left EQ1 years ago; sony seemed to nerf all the classes every pacth because of this issue. Blizzard just seemed to single out the last "op'd" class and make everyone else that much stronger.

    Sorry to say nicedorkyguy, but I'm not sure Rift will meet your expectations in that area.
