    Default Thank you Rift - F2P has made me a Sub!

    For 5 years I played WOW and a majority of that time was spent on my main, a Rogue. A few months ago, after many of my friends and guidmates called it quits, I packed my bags and ended my subscription.

    For the past few months I have tried GW2 (meh) and SWTOR (it's OK) and then finally tried RIFT this past weekend. Within 1 hour of F2P, I bought a sub and could not be happier.

    My compliments to your design team, I finally feel and play like a rogue. Outstanding talent choices, multiple roles and great gameplay will keep me logging on for many months to come!

    Thanks for the free look, I am a believer.

    Cheers

    Glad you're having a good time. I'm sure the devs will be happy to see this posting of yours

    PS - It may get a bit rough from the mid 30s till you make it to Storm Legion, but only if you let it.

    I personally have a rogue as my main as well, and am quite happy with him. Welcome to RIFT!

    I played GW2 lots and lots but got a bit of a burnout lately. So when I read that Rift was going F2P I remembered I bought it some time ago when there was a promotion on Steam. Didn't really get around to play it at that time but decided to try it again. Managed to find my old account and rerstarted a new character.

    I must say that I am pleasantly surprised so far, nice community too, and when my 3 days free play where up I decided to sub for now

    I'm with the OP, I'm a returning player although I quit three months after release (was kinda burned out since I was in beta as well).

    I played lite for a while to get a feel for the game again, then saw the Raptr thing and got SL through that and bought a 3 month subscription and other stuff from the store, quite happy with my rogue as well.

    Welcome!

    I have played WoW since November 2004 until February 2013, and had all Collectors Editions, all cash shop items, etc... I was a big big fanboy, let me tell you that!

    Anyways, I also had purchased RIFT and played it in Beta, even got my collectors edition and I use that USB Pen every day too haha

    But I quit WoW as I was tired of the same old same old... RIFT has filled that void and much more!

    I am now having a lot of fun playing with friends I made in game and I am loving this game. I will still sub even after the move to F2P.

    For the people who don't know, WoW rogue WAS overpowered in PvP until this MoP expansion.

    He is just rage quit

    More likely he didn't like the confinement of the WoW talent specs, you really have no way to make a spec as you want to, Rift is more like WoW pre-cata where you could put your points where you wanted.

    (obviously there are always going to be cookie-cutter specs for min/maxers even in Rift).

    Thanks for all the kind comments and warm welcome.

    Molkar, you hit the nail on the head, I could not agree moreabout WOW. As a PVE guy I felt underwhelmed by the choices offered.

    I know I am in the "honeymoon" phase of RIFT but it is great to see people actually asking questions in general chat and actually getting helpful responses. A chat free of Anal and Thunderfury jokes is a a welcome relief.

    You must have rolled on a RP server or something because general char is pretty horrible on most servers ;)

    Just to clarify, you bought a sub to keep playing before F2P went live right? The game is currently pre-f2p and that is what your playing. How it changes afterwards is up in the air.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad its attracted a new person, but for the sake of your wallet, take a look at what subbing gets you after F2P and decide if its worth it to you then

    Anyways, grats on a good game (as of today) and hopefully a continued good game.
