    Default "RIFT Bonuses are in Effect!" from what exactly?

    No, seriously. I've looked at several web-pages, asked in /50 chat on my primary server, and I've done a couple quick searches through the forums and there's no mention of this at all anywhere.

    What exactly is this for, how long is it going on and what sort of subscribers are there that can play the game other than "active subscribers?"

    There was a brief period a while back where they let anyone who used to have an account play for a bit to try to encourage people to resub.
    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!)

    Well, given that I pre-subscribed for that Founder's plan and aside from a couple hours on the third due to CC issues have had an unbroken subscription since that explains why I didn't know a thing about this. Only mail I've gotten out recently with a big Trion stamped on it are a couple mails regarding support tickets and account phishing attempts by other agencies.

    As a somewhat related piece on this, kudos to Trion for not making additional leveling experience a part of these rewards. The leveling/quest gear balance is pretty tenuous at best...but having extraordinary xp gains left many people with toons in level inappropriate gear that they had no idea how to play, not to mention the unfinished quest chains. This is a better solution. Thank you for paying attention to us.

    They had trouble with the event and turned it on to compensate for the wait. Good move.

    One can only imagine how that went

    I assume there were lots of goofy comments and a few Chuck Testa references

    So two questions then.

    #1 Why notify them of rewards they'll never see while on a trial account and not notify those who will see it?

    #2 How is a trial account player using any sort of subscription?

    I believe either if not both of those questions should cover all posibilities for what you were referring to when quoting me.

    So they can subscribe and get it if they are trial now?

    Damn rogues and their saps, messing with your subscription. It was bad enough when it was just disrupting capturing points in Codex, but that's just ridiculous.

    Sweet, thanks for the heads up! Glad my Saturday is wide open. Looks like I'll be doing a lot of rift chasing. Maybe I can finally get all the ascended powers.

    A new high level Rogue ability: Discontinue Subscription. It immediately logs the victim out and cancels their sub. For use on pesky WF healers.
