Well, here goes. I pre-ordered rift and was playing from release, and I actually did have a lot of fun but I'd really burned myself out playing wow beforehand so I got tired of this style of game pretty quick. I unsubbed after the first month and took a couple months break playing EVE instead.
I'm ready to go back to a hotkey MMO I think but I'd like to know whether rift is currently better or worse than it was when it was released? I was very impressed with the release and I had a lot of fun before I burned myself out but I saw that Trion are introducing a random dungeon finder and I'm worried this might turn into another solo gear treadmill type game, ala warcraft? What made it so much fun at release for me was the emergent gameplay kinda thing, rifts and invasions everwhere and no flying mounts so world pvp actually exists. Is this still alive?
Thanks guys, hopefully this post isn't too long or confusing.
