Seems like some Wowhead users have figured out a new way of trolling.
Haters gonna hate, thats all i can sayRift is gonna make it, no question.
Rift seems ok, but as it is both my time and my money are limited.If rift was free-to-play (wich is not) I wound't be able to play it, since as it is, I have very little free time and I use it mostly to play either wow, or some of my other offline games (Currently Dead Space 2 and Finishing Dragon Age Origins again to prepare for the sequel)and since it's not free-to-play it means I'd have to pay a monthly fee to play it. While the fee isn't particulary expensive, there is a very opressive law on my country that nulifies any way to exchange my money (Bolivares) to international money (Dollars). Thus to be able to pay those 15 bucks per month I'd have to invest A LOT of real money on smugglers wich is not something I'm willing to do.as it is I pay for wow with ingame gold, and I have to farm it every 60 days or I can't play. I am not willing to do that for another MMO, regardless of how good it is.so........ sorry rift XD but u're gonna hve to survive wihtout my awesomeness.
I played the beta, and all I can say is: RIFT ROCKS! 1) Graphics are completely amazing. I spent most of my 1st day as follows: Run. Screen Grab, screen grab, run. :)2) Unique and varied game play. The rifts mix it up. 3) Class combos are pretty cool and flexible4) Did I mention the graphics?
Some people just need to stop associating this game with WoW, its ok if there are 2 big MMOs, it wont hurt anything and Rift wont hurt WoW in the slightest. It is kind of cheesy on Rifts end to deliberately mention Azeroth and WoW in general in their advertising (just shows how much they are worried about competing with Blizz) but seriously this isnt the "death" of wow, 3 other MMOs have been hyped up just as much. Although Aion was hyped even more than Rift and look at it now. If people want to quit WoW to go play Rift then go for it, have fun.
Nothing I can think of has been that solid in beta. I'm giving it a fair shot. If it doesn't float my boat, I'll just cancel my sub. If it's as good as it looked it testing, I'll hang on to my founder's rate as long as possible. :)Apparently they've got 1 million accounts already. That's quite impressive!
Huh? The land looks beautiful to me. Of course, I'm comparing it to WoW pre-cata, which is probably unfair, but...The draw distance is totally amazing.
