I’ve been closely keeping track of Rift for the past few months and been anticipating its release for what feels like forever now. I even preordered the game to gain access to headstart, but for the past 3 weeks since the game went live I haven’t even logged in.
I’ve fallen for the hype too! A ton of players are enjoying this game however and I’m actually quite surprised I haven’t read any bad reviews as of yet. Typically when MMORPGs come out we start hearing about their cons and lack of endgame content, but that’s not the case with Rift — yet.
I’m wondering if this game actually is as good as it seems. I lied when I said I didn’t log in though: I did try during the headstart, but the servers were full, and when I finally got past the queue I got greeted by a completely empty world due to 70,000+ latency. I’m guessing it’s fixed, but it kind of cooled me off for this game, despite it apparently being good.
So what are your thoughts on Rift, are you having fun or not? Can you see yourself playing this game 6 months from now, or will you move on to SWTOR or whatever else comes first?
