I started playing it recently, it has gone free to play since release and has had 1 expansion added to it also. it is in many ways a "wow copy" but this is because it was made at a time where everyone was still trying to imitate that model. Besides it does also offer alot cool unique features that make it able to stand on its own feet. It stilll alive and has a large player base. it's my main MMO currently and im trying to get into GW2.  :D

 

How come you got bored with it, SteelRodent?  :P

I was in the Rift beta almost from the beginning, and spent a lot of time messing around with it. So when the game came out it was just doing the same thing over one more time. I got to about 20 and got fed up with doing Rifts over and over. It just became too samey to be interesting.

 

The thing with the way it does dynamic events, aka the rifts, is it forces you to do them by killing off the NPCs that would otherwise give you quests to do somethng else. It gets really annoying after a while, and when you play on odd hours there's always periods where you end up having to tackle them alone, which is fine until you get to stage 4-5, then it's too much to do alone. Then you have to sit and wait for others to come along to continue. Do that half a dozen times each day you play, and it just becomes an annoyance rather than a feature.

I can relate, but i do think that PvP and dungeon/raiding does offer large amounts of fun. I also like the skill tree in rift alot, probably the best i have seen i any MMO. but yeah if you play Rift only to do the rifts then it is going to be tiring. Rifts are however not the only type of world events that takes place in the game. alot of them are just like random boss fights or defending a location from invaders and can actually be very challenging and rewarding sometimes.
