    How about you read the whole thread and get a clue, or maybe you could go all out and invest in a dictionary.

    I'm just going to point something out here that you might not be aware of.

    There is simply no limit, relent or plateau to what you describe as a legitimate goal of Trion. There is no limit to the amount of profit that any company would be happy with.

    I used to think the same way as you....the company needs to make money to support the development of the game and maintaining a quality experience for players. This assumption is false, but its perpetuation serves the purpose of deflecting attention from what is at its core an unrelenting cash grab.

    If Trion wants you to spend $100 this week at the store, next week they will be looking for $120. This is how capitalism works. There is no future point in time where this assault on player's bank accounts will cease......no point where Trion will say "we have enough money for our development plans and we are returning a satisfactory profit to stakeholders".

    As a result I can guarantee that Rift will be in much worse shape in a year.

    It's free 100%. Farm plat. Buy boxes with rex. Attain tittle AND mount, and ANYTHING else from the shop. Forced to spends USD how? All of your whining and legitimate pay2win/participate arguments are now moot. Still mad? Quit. Obviously this game is done according too the doom sayers, so quit.while you are ahead. /Thread

    I'm not complaining. I got a pretty awesome greater essence I likely would not have seen for another couple of months. I'll still do the daily, and I suspect most everyone else will.

    I just PM'd dahanese about this, hopefully she'll reply soon.

    So far she told me, that they ''mostly wanted to give something new and fun to people''.

    There are many valid concerns in this topic, and while some may be too aggressive and/or doom-gloomy, in general I agree about all this, so I'm not going to repeat what was said in all these topics recently.

    Ever since the merging fiasco things have been going downhill, and it's sad, as I used to respect Trion more then any other company, and I love Rift.

    I really hope we get some response to all this, so that things can clear up a bit. Maybe it's not all as bad as it looks, but since there's silence from the devs again, we don't know.

    Hey!

    Just here to say we're reading what you guys are saying, talking to some here and in PMs, and most importantly taking feedback from everyone.

    Our goal is to give people a fun game, fun things to do, and fun options without forcing anyone to do anything.

    I'm not in the business of trying to convince someone to like something that they don't, but I'll try and answer any questions that I can. Please do note we're headed into a holiday, though, so devs are scattered with family and quite soon my family will be wanting my attention as well.

    Please do send feedback to me, though, because we always read it.

    I really think they shouldn't call these World Events (Fashion Week and Mech Week) and just leave them all in the Cash Shop. This is 'pretty close' in my opinion to advertising for the Cash Shop - and it was something I specifically recall Trion mentioning they wouldn't do (in-your-face ads for the cash shop). Sure it isn't directly in-your-face; but you've added a World Event to the World Event Tracker and a new NPC specifically to advertise the Cash Shop items.

    As for any NPCs added in relation to these Cash Shop Weeks, they should make it clear what the rewards are. The free Vault is definitely much appreciated, but like many others, I was expecting one per day for this week - which would have been nice.

    Expectations unmet = disappointment - that much should have been obvious. Just look at the Fashion Week daily. It rewarded nothing but exp/plat/IS - no chests. Yet there's much less (if any) negative reaction over Fashion Week's dailies compared to Mech Week's dailies even though everyone got a free Vault. Why? Because there wasn't much expectation with the Fashion Week daily - there was a lot more with Mech Week.

    Instead we get 1hr Temporal Aligners to reduce Vault CDs and only one Vault. At the very least they should have made it clear that it is a one-time only reward. Maybe make sure the quest isn't a 'daily' and not indicated on the quest tracker and mini-map (and overhead icon) as a Daily quest. Perhaps have two NPCs. One who gives a single one-off quest with the Vault with different quest objective from the daily - the other that gives the actual Daily quest with the Temporal Aligner reward.

    Many of us who have been here for many years do not mind supporting Rift through the Cash Shop, even if we're still paying subs. There are times when I have felt completely justified buying credits, because I felt that I was supporting the game that I've stuck with since launch. I can honestly no longer say that, fluff items that I really want to experience for myself, aside.

    This "Mech Week" thing is honestly underhanded and anti-consumer. It's the same tactic that drug dealers use: "Your first one's free! Oh, you want another? Gotta pay, bro." Keep in mind that I'm not comparing this company to illicit drug resellers, but the business model is exactly the same.

    I don't understand the logic behind this. It's a quick money grab, but other than that, this company has (and will continue to) anger people with these ways of doing business. Arguments can be made for both sides, but in all totality, you're attempting to get your playerbase hooked on something and then taking it away the next day, waggling a finger and saying, "Nope, gotta pay!".

    Not to mention the additional Expert 'rewards', the subsequent dailies, etc are all entirely worthless unless you outright buy something from the store.

    I honestly feel as if this company is taking advantage of its players in a way it never has before, and.. Well, as someone that's been here since the beginning, it's not a good feeling.

    This is the part that bothers me. Lockboxes don't phase me, I don't have to buy them. Getting keys in my patron daily doesn't bug me, I can sell them. Dimension items as rewards, no biggie since it is my choice not to pursue that aspect of Rift.

    But this quest is useless. Resources were used to create the NPC, the quest, the triggered items, the scaling mobs to fight, etc... all for a quest that is useful only to those that spend additional money.

    I can't wait to visit Trion's casino.

    I wonder if Hall & Oates and Bobcat Goldthwait will be headlining soon?

    Save me a spot at the craps table.

    You know more resources will be spent enticing us to cheapen this game with pixel crack and mounts. It's the future.

    Why bother adding real content when they can just give the lemmings mounts, reskinned pets and some mobs to kill that have been out for 3 years.

    Mentor your own level down low enough so that the mobs are at least green to you. (Right click on your portrait while out of combat and standing still, pick Set Mentor Level.)
    RIP Icewatch and Argent.
    Not another damn penny.
