    they do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7_l6komcOc

    CO/STO is one server as well, but it has several instances per zone. GW does it to a lesser extend too.

    First, let me state that I am a BIG Microsoft advocate, going back to my MCSE days on NT3.1

    That said, the video you linked was nothing more than an advertisement for Windows HPC 2008. They didn't detail anything about their infrastructure.

    Without verifiable, "3rd party" audited numbers I am very skeptical about any MMO subscribership numbers, especially when the claims push teh boundaries of technology.

    Trion is running a non-profit mmo then? That's news to me.

    I suggest you study your data carefully because what this patch has done to classes, i haven't seen since the debacle of mythic and their failed mmo Warhammer.

    In one single move, you've alienated a good portion of your playerbase that was hoping class balance as heading in the right direction, you were warned by various people that small tweaks were the way to go , but instead you decided to do massive tweaks which in turn have turned class balance on its head.

    You've made one class better at just about everything that any other classes in multiple souls, you've done exactly what mythic did which overall was their downfall with Warhammer.

    I will be watching as will the group of people i play with, what you do within the next weeks to correct this, if you choose this is the course you want to continue with, we will have no choice but to leave this game with the same feeling we had with warhammer, so many possibilites, but you chose to use a sledgehammer approach to class balance.

    I sincerely hope you realise your mistake and rectify it in good time to avoid a significant subscription loss, new mmos are about to be released and you should think very carefully what you want to do next.

    You made a lot of statments but I dont see mathmatical evidence. Nor do you have much detail on what or who is the dominating class. Im guessing the rangers? I dont know because I dont play one. The overview of the patch notes made the game even better in my opnion. Simply, what or who are you saying is unbalancing the game?

    Generally I think the patch is good - what ive seem of it.

    This is going to be a bit of a random comment but the guardian armour you get as a vet reward - why isn't it different for male/female toons? The female guard armour looks great but when you put on the reward armour you look like a tin slug along with all the other male guards ;)

    Which is funny, because all the people I know are super enthused.

    Fresh 50s can duo them with a friend. RPers and people who have been following the story get to explore the story and find out what happens without having to be in a raid group to do it.

    Oh, and people who are sick of their other dailies can run the Chronicles occasionally for XP and money. Now that 50s can use XP too...

    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    Your post makes no sense. First you say Blizzard made a major error...and then you say you don't see Rift lasting for more than 2 years. WOW is still one of the most successful MMORPG on the market. So i guess the MAJOR error didn't affect them much so why would it affect Rift? only because you don't think that RIFT is not a true MMO anymore doesn't mean it is true. Ha...armchair MMO experts.

    The most hilarious post I saw about MMOs claimed no game in history had EVER been a "real" MMO.

    Nice update. I like my Vet rewards I love planar attunement (basically making long used 50's better than fresh ones is a good idea imo), I do feel like 1 master mode and 2 twomans is kinda not enough tho.

    4 Masters and 4 2-mans would be enough imo.

    Oh... and waiting for the event

    Hmm, yeah, I wonder when the update will be so fresh 50's can buy PA.

    I don't like the continual major reworking of the classes for PVP.

    Some pvpers seem to have problems with this patch (warriors) but it seems most are happy so they won't be leaving or anything. Besides, where are PvPers going to go right now, lol? Back to Warhammer? Doubt that.

    You might want to try an alt if you're playing warrior. Start up a rogue.
