I've found you just cant be as frustrated when you die in this type of game, you must expect it, because it's wild gameplay.

I've found it very easy to be frustrated...

Whoo boy this game had me frustrated at some points. If your team is stuck progressing in a map. Usually its because they don't look for alternate routes. Take a new route, flank the enemy. Log jam busted.

Easier said than done of course. The climbing on stuff and spotting routes. These take a while to pick up.

What the... no K/D ratio displayed? Boycott for life!

Seriously, how is Valve going to penalize/reward me if certain numbers aren't openly tracked?

You get a score each round and awards. One of the awards is most kills. So instead of looking at your K/D ratio, you start looking at your score and awards.

Some servers give you a good ping but then have bad server lag after you start playing. In game lag is well hidden and so your left with a bad, frustrating experience.

If you get on a good server, the game is a blast. The AI bots are also hit or miss depending on the server. You can run into ultra deadly bots or brain dead simpletons that don't like to fire their gun.

Weapon choice, weapon addons and the body size you choose are a key thing. Progressing up to level 20 doesn't take long.

Can't wait for this! Other recent 4x strategy games were a disappointment.

What are you two talking about? The graphics look excellent for this type of game. The animations are quite nice too.

This is full 3D not what Diablo 2 had.

Nice they are adding this layer to the game. I did enjoy the beta for a while but Rift is consuming all my time now.

I'm not impressed with it.
The graphics are good, but there's too much taken from WoW, and it comes off as trying too hard.

Rift not being original enough is easily agreed.

"comes off as trying too hard", I'm not even sure what your saying there. You want them to release a sloppy mess of a game?

Anyway. I've already purchased Rift, but thats only because Guild Wars 2 doesn't look like it will release anytime soon.

No hype, no word of mouth, no advertising, no extended beta. Yeah, this game's gonna be around for 10 months tops.

They'll go F2P. Then they'll fail.

And thanks Nate, damn sporting of you, old sock.
Your welcome?


Rift is very similiar to EQ2/WoW and such. Nice graphics, very stable and well run betas.

Were is it different? The rifts and zone wide events are both very fun. The soul system to customize your toon. Check it out yourself. Rift website

Or just try it during beta 5. Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011 at 10:00 AM PST (18:00 GMT) and run through 10:00 AM PST (18:00 GMT) on Friday, Jan. 28, 2011.

CCP is also working on a MMOFPS: Dust 514

If I remember correctly, Dust 514 is console only.

News Comments > RIFT Launch Date and Pricing Details
11. Re: RIFT Launch Date and Pricing Details Jan 4, 2011, 20:03 Nate
 
I only played Beta 3. True, the combat mechanics are your standard MMO stuff. The quests were mostly the same old - same old. Crafting did not have one innovative aspect.

What I found fun was the rift / zone invasions. It was fun to fight with hundreds of other people during these things. Also, the Soul combination system was interesting.

Think I'll pre-purchase but I'm not liking the $50 price. However, if Guild Wars 2 was launching in March, then I'd be skipping this game.

Interesting... The tactical AI in Civ 5 still sucks. Overall the AI plays better, sometimes it will even kill one of my units, but it still makes frequent dumb moves with its units.
