    I consider it relevant. The more time one spends doing anything makes them more experienced and knowledgeable on the subject. His opinion on an MMO is more informed than a user who has never played an MMO or played very little.

    LOL! I have to admit I got a kick out of this guy getting offended by someone ascribing motives and thoughts to him that he claims didn't exist. Irony much?

    Once again, the only reason I put the "9 year WOW player" in my message thread was so that the developer's would know what perspective I was coming from! I'm the target demographic for them. They would absolutely love to steal a bunch of WOW players and I was trying to share with them what I, as a former 9 year WOW player, thought of their game!

    For the record I see nothing whatsoever praiseworthy about playing MMOs (especially the same MMO) for 9 years straight. If anything, I see it as something of an embarrassment and I would never go around admitting that in public. But think whatever you want about me! Whatever helps you sleep at night, bro.

    Sorry for killing you so much in your chronicle, but you really should have gone for Shyla first. Though all that saccharine might give you a massive tummy ache, and Tavril only knows what the side effect of THAT would be...
    I will take that to heart, Ascended, and savor you with a glass of aged Bogling blood when I devour you.

    Indeed, it's not a pleasant experience, that gastrointestinal distress. Ever wonder what I'm really doing when I use 'Genesis Torrent'?

    I know EXACTLY how big of an impact on FPS shadows make in this game.

    Shadows Full: 20-25 FPS in TB, 30-45 FPS out in world.

    Shadows Off: 40-45 FPS in TB, 45-100+ FPS out in world.

    Turning shadows off more than doubles my FPS almost everywhere, lucky the game still looks quite nice with shadows off.

    Second biggest FPS killer I believe is ground clutter, but it's nothing compared to shadows.

    Make it Sobek instead and you've got a deal. Those little strutting jerks always disrupt my fishing daily in Stonefield.

    Oh dear Tavril- THAT'S why my Genesis Pylon is still waving its tentacles! Ewwww, Greenscale, just... ew. Now I know why the creatures in your crater are so damn mutated! *shakes fist*

    It's nothing personal.

    They (technology) got pretty good with anti-aliasing, but shadows has been a killer forever . I remember being very strict about my PC when Doom 3 came out because there was no way I was playing without shadows.

    This is something on your side, your ISP, a firewall or something else.

    I play on the US and EU servers from South Africa.

    I don't have these issues and I am sure if this was a major problem except for the higher latency (which is to be expected), there would be more people complaining.

    Perhaps Nightmare Tide will take everything else to the next level, and if not that then there is always EQ Next to look forward to.
    Yes I agree the pre SL days were glorious but the SL content seems to be more concerned with quantity than quality, with some exceptions.

    Volan should be a must see for all those new to Rift, get to 48 and get guild bannered to him, u will die lots but have tons of fun doing it.

    The raids in rift are good, not amazing but good, the SL exp dungeons are atrocious, I don't like any of them but don't mind some over others. Every time I get stormbreaker I'm tempted to turn around and walk out.

    I too am hoping that 3.0 turns it all around and Rift returns to being the game I would recommend to all my friends rather than just a few discussion points.

    the stuff they did for low end comps helped a ton. hoping for more in near future. but for the 100th time only real issue is that launcher error which disconnects everyone.

    keep in mind i never get disconnected in other games i've tried on both my (much older pc, and my current iMac with crossover, only dc with rift for no good reason.)
