    The original logo was rough, gritty, variegated. It looked like Telara felt: a dark and dangerous mid-apocalypse world.

    The Storm Legion logo was cleaner, sleeker, adorned with the imperious emblems of its eponymous dragon cult. It gave the impression of the expansion's theme: a world in the shadow of tyranny.

    The Nightmare Tide logo was rusty and contrasted, with all the crazy Plane-of-Water accoutrements and Eyes-of-Madness popping out here and there. I didn't like it as much as the other two because it had more of a cartoonish look, lacking the simple elegance of its two predecessors, but at least it was artful.

    This new logo is bland, boring, lacklustre. Now Rift is even adopting the look of the cheesy Asian F2P MMOs whose business model it's trying to emulate. Rift has always had beautiful artwork in-game. This logo is an insulting non-reflection of the incredible visuals that have always characterised this game.

    I mean seriously! It's plain text with a crappy center-field glow. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?
    What are you, a professional software developer now?

    I guess you are missing the point I haven't mentioned the default skin I am only referring to the background image. This just to clarify:

    I am wondering why death rift when we are about to go Planetouched Wilds and the Shalistri are coming as well as Bahmi lore but its ok it really isn't that important and I guess wasn't as obvious as I thought.

    Yeah, I didn't really see death rift there. I kind of just thought they picked a neat color to set off the graphics....

    Then again, for some reason we could be doing Death plane this time. I'd almost prefer that personally. I really have a *wince* reaction trying to imagine Trion producing something wonderful for air/sky/wind/flying....

    Lol its ok it wasn't that important momentarily confused what bulletin had to do with anything and attempted to explain. I'm curious on the new logo and the planets on main site more than I am about this forum background.

    there is also a new promo ad for Rift that I saw on twitch tonight where a rubber suited Finric dumps some sleeping chick in a kiddie pool of water. I'm not even kidding.

    I agree with Ianto Jones on the new logo. It's fine for one wallpaper, but when you look at it on the Rift website...it just looks bad. Like the life has been sucked out of it.

    New Website/Forum look-2015-08-08_154332.jpg

    It just seems so out of place compared to all the colors/design of the rest of the page.

    I do like the fact that the website was updated with more info. Game guide has slightly more stuff like Elemental Planes.

    One Error: Conquest is for Level 65, not Level 60.

    The plain listing of instances feels kind of 'cheap' though. I mean, the Warfront section didn't even get a short blurb.

    The community blog seems like that a little also (background pic) maybe this will change though?

    Curiosity about the Death theme aside the other thing I wondered about is I built a dimension recently with Mind Overseer Sky Projector, its fascinating - like an alternative reality changing the lighting to this dark purple and almost blanking out textures where it's own source of light shines up to it like the Rift Logo making me wonder about the new concepts Senior Concept Artist Drakcoon mentioned last week:

    Ocho: What’s something you particularly liked after seeing it in game?
    SM: A lot of it hasn’t been released yet, but the next raid we will release is really exciting to me. It’s a bit of a different direction than we normally go, but the raid will be unique visually with a lot of different elements that will be completely new to RIFT.
    All very fascinating...

    Can you send me a screenshot privately, I can take a look. That being said we're working on new forums entirely.

    Interesting that they're trying to move away from riftgame.com and instead to trionworlds.com/rift/.

    When RIFT was our only game, we architected our sites a bit differently on our back end. Since then we've gone to a different architecture and this mostly makes it easy for us to keep multiple products updated. RIFT's website was updated with this to fit into the rest of our larger system.

    The blog as a separate site is being retired, it's been integrated in the main site now and that is what will be updated moving forward. I'll have information up on the old blog site about that this week, unfortunately this was all tied in with making announcements at Gamescom and there were plenty of things to do to get ready. The old blog site will remain as an archive, since converting it over would probably break some other stuff.

    To give you guys a bit more information, the art and logo updates and new ads are part of a push to market the game more. Every so often you want to change up the look to something new and eye catching. Nothing fundamental, but it will help with more advertising and getting more people to play RIFT with you all.

    This is the least eye-catching logo you guys have ever put out if I were to be completely honest. It's just so...bland. Here are some examples of the old logos.

    It works well with other stuff, having a "simpler" logo means that it fits in with more things. *Shrug* I'm neither an artist nor a marketing guy, to me a logo is just a logo. This one will be simpler to get as a tattoo when I get around to it one of these days.

    Well, I'm seeing the letters are not uniform:

    a) the spacing of "IFT" - is too close together and "R" seems too far away.
    b) "R" and "T"- upper left corners- only letters with a rounded edge on top.
    c) The bottom of "R" blocks the bottom of "I" - maybe lower it not to block.
    c) "F" - the middle has a soft rounded "droop", while edges of other letters are "sharp".
    d) "I" and "F" and "T"- upper part of letters- each have a protruding triangles that look lined up
    e) "R", "I" and "T" - center of letters - same triangles do not look like they line up.
    f) "R" and "T" - bottom edges - need some type of symmetry.

    I'd be in favor of moving the copyright symbol to the bottom right.
    I like the font, just some tweaking.
    Respectfully,
    Diz

    Ahh I was wondering if that was the case but fansites weren't added hopefully this is a WIP.

    Cheers for updates and welcome back.
