    Sage advice there to be sure and I say that a public relations professional.

    If people want to "pimp" Rift in other gaming communities it should be done in OT forums and there should be no put down of the "host" game, developer or publisher - at all. The poster should focus on the positive aspects of Rift from their perspective. If someone starts to flame or troll simply ignore and report them. If someone is genuine in their desire to compare and contrast the "host" game with Rift the response should be simple, direct and clear. It should be alone the lines of:

    The purpose of this thread is not to compare or to put-down, disparage or in any way demean "X" game. The desire here is to inform other members of this community about a gaming opportunity I think they may find worthwhile exploring given our common interest in this hobby. Consequently, I will not entertain questions or address comments that could be perceived as having the previously mentioned intent.

    It isn't me! You couldn't drag me kicking and screaming with a team of wild horse's to the WoW forums. The only forums I spam is ours

Personally, I'd mention it to friends, family, guildies, etc and leave it at that. Trion does have ads going around and all that after all. Like I said, it just seems pointless to run all over to other forums and spam it, if anything, it makes us look bad.

    Once again, not being a jerk, but its just...yeah
    I agree.

    I wish those people would ask themselves how someone is labeled on this forum when they spam GW2 info. Well, I'll tell you, they're heckled and labeled as a troll. How is what you are doing any different. Just stop it.

    Haha yep, GW2 info spammers get ravaged here, which is why I don't find it right to get annoyed at them...and then go to the WoW forums and spam em

    I heartily agree! Spam your friends/family/guildies! let the other games learn the hard way or just let their curiosity eat at them

    I see no reason to try and spam the wow forums.

    Then again, I see no reason to have a wow account to be able to do so.

    I disagree.

    Acting like a tool on the forums for another game is not good, ever.

    I donīt think that people who go and spam other games forums and tell them how their game sucks and yours rocks can be helped to be honest. But maybe Iīm just a pessimist^^

    QFT!

    I've never understood the hate between "rival" gamers. When I played Vanguard, I kind of began to understand that each new game will leech away players and in turn, reduce opportunities in MY game, but.. hey, let people play what they want! Pretty much all game forums have people writing long diatribes that demean the communities of other MMOs and declare "their" game the best. It just make the posters themselves look bad, and blanket assumptions about people you don't know are ultimately useless and wrong. I've played EQ, WOW, LOTRO, Vanguard, and Aion, and found cool people and good times in all of them.

    I don't feel your choice of video game makes you any better or worse than anyone else. When a game is no longer fun, I vote with my wallet and move on. It should end there.

    Well i can tell you this. i have nothing against blizzard they filled me with almost 6 years of entertainment but the game has become ing something else im not to fond of.

    I was reading the forums over there and i saw a post that says " IM quitting wow" and you have the regular people saying "Good riddiance" " dont let the door hit you on the way out " all those smart remarks . but OP was saying he was going to look at other MMORPGs that have a better community and so i quoted him and say. check out rift . its pretty cool. logged out for the night , logged back into wow forums and i was banned for advertising lol.

    so i can understand why but was pretty harsh for making a statement. shouldnt of said that.

    bad publicity is still publicity. Trash-talking rift is so going to backfire.

    Though I'm guilty of harassing the GMs on the WoW forums (mostly b/c i know a couple and it's for laughs) i have to say...

    Most those threads are not even from Rift players (or potential ones), WoW is notorious for the trolls and if you don't believe that log onto the Ysera server horde side. You can hear all about their facebook pages and sex lives. I'd bet that a good portion of them are just WoW forum lurkers trolling.

    Do you have any links or cop and paste of what people have been typing? I literally checked every forum thread on WoW and their is not a single reference to rift.
