RIFT Head Start Underway

The RIFT Website announces that the head start program for Trion Worlds' MMORPG is now underway, saying: "Head Start is here, and everyone who has pre-ordered RIFT will be able to join the fight for the fate of Telara starting at 10:00 AM PST on Feb. 24, 2011! It’s time to enter the nexus of the planes and wage war on the forces of the Blood Storm. For more information on Head Start, visit www.RIFTgame.com/headstart." In addition, Trion announces they have registered more than one million accounts for the game:
Trion Worlds announced today that more than one million accounts have been created to date, signaling a high level of interest for the company’s first massively multiplayer online game, Rift™, which is scheduled to launch March 1st in North America, March 3rd in pan-European countries, and March 4th in the UK. The news hits just as the game’s Head Start period begins, giving pre-order customers advance playtime before servers officially open on launch day.

Launching with 33 Head Start servers, Rift will feature dedicated realms for PvP, PvE, and role-playing players. Servers are live today, coinciding with the game’s Head Start period, which lasts until the game launches next week.

I had a 30 second wait in the queue when I got home from work. Game was completely stable for the first 6 hours I played for. I've had a few bumps in the last half hour.
It is very much a standard MMO in most regards, but the class dynamics and the group dynamics that result from them make the game fresh and fun for me. Stepping back away from the trinity is nice.
Of course when GW2 comes out and it's obliterated that'll be even better. But I see no reason not to enjoy myself between then and now.
