RIFT Six Month Anniversary Celebration Begins

The RIFT Website announces that the promised sixth month birthday celebration for Trion's MMORPG is now underway, offering benefits to existing subscribers, a few different contests, and free access to the game through the end of this month for all. The free period includes "access to all levels, zones, dungeons, PvP Warfronts, and more," and previous subscribers and anyone who played on a trial account can access their previous toons.

Wont play this again, even if free. IT was a decent game at release, but the end game grind really boring fast. There is hardly enough PvP to keep me interested. The devs are old Mythic employees and it shows - no concept of balance and ever releasing that carrot on a stick. I'm plain tired of this concept for an MMO.

I still have a lot of fun in Rift. After being dissatisfied with TOR's gameplay I've decided to resub to Rift when my subscription becomes due in October till Guild Wars 2 at least. I'll do the 6 month Founder's deal again, can't beat $10/mo for an MMO. It's the one game that's recaptured that magic that vanilla WoW once had, all the while being a completely modern game and having some great innovations.

It's possible I forgot about the 12 month plan.. 12 months is too big an investment for me.. still, that is technically $10 a month

I don't find raid-type content (or dungeons in general) in MMOGs compelling so my draw for Rift is the PvP element. It's fun, but.. about once every two-three weeks.

But overall yeah Rift is lacking in content because it just came out

It's $14.95/month for the monthly plan, the larger plans are slightly less but I don't think any are as low as $10..

At any rate, I find Rift fun in spurts which for a MMOG makes it unique for me.. I mostly enjoy it for the PvP, though.. Warriors are fun..

I keep canceling my subscription, then resubbing, then getting burnt out again, etc. It's just not quite worth it at $15 a month for me. At $10 a month it might be.. It's one of those games I want to play every couple of weeks or so

It is the best MMOG I've played overall thus far. WoW has more content but after playing Rift it just feels too easy

Checking the site it looks like they have a 12 month plan for $10/mo. I'm not sure if they always had this plan though, as people who bought the game on release could get a 3 or 6 month plan for the cost per month of the current 6/12 month plans.

yeah, it got old quick. I was in a guild that cleared all of the end game content at the time (GSB and RoS) in under 3 hours. Then we'd just twiddle our thumbs and wait a week for the instances to reset. I think they maybe made it too easy to level and gear up.

Game is great fun and is totally worth it. Paying $10/month and being addicted to Rift has saved me from buying $300 in games over the past 6 months.
