Hello all, this is my first post on these forums! I'm currently playing Rift and I am enjoying it loads, been awhile since I've played a mmorpg that's actually challenging(at least for me :P) Anyways I have a couple of questions before I do buy the game.
The trial required me to download the client which was only small which suprised me at first then I realised that the exe i downloaded was the patcher client so the game had to be downloaded like that, thats all fine and expected. I'm a bit iffy about digital copies of things and would much prefer a "hard" copy. It's actually the same price(you save like 2 pence getting the digital version from Trion, but on Steam its the same price as a hard copy) too so makes sense to me to have a hard version of the game. Thing is does the hard copy work in the same way the digital copy does? Only has the patcher on the disk and then that proceeds to download the game the same way the digital version would. I know it sounds silly and I'm probably just being OCD about it.
Secondly whats the deal with Game time cards? how come they're cheaper than an actual active sub?(1 month recurring) Cheaper by nearly £2 which adds up after a few months!
Hope to be rifting again soon! :)
