    Default It's too bad the new monthly wasn't adjusted for the first month

    The new daily rewards need you to log in 21 days in a calendar month to get the 'big reward'.

    But it's added mid-April, so you can't log in 21 days this month. Be nice if it were adjusted.

    Special case coding to deal with a single month would not have happened. It is not very good use of engineering resources as opposed to work that can have much longer term benefits for players. Given that, the choices remaining were:

    A) Launch it with 3.6 as we did.
    B) Keep the feature disabled until May 1st.

    We figured that most players would prefer more free stuff now. I might be wrong in that assumption... but I doubt it. ;)

    I think it would have been better to have it restart 30 days from patch release, but I understand you want to sync it with the first of the month.

    I agree that displaying unattainable awards will cause frustration among the player base.

    I'm not going to say no to free stuff...

    Think of it this way:
    You're getting 16 EXTRA days of free stuff as opposed to NO free stuff for 16 days.

    Yes, thank you for buying into the spin of the false choice that that's the only alternative.

    It is not spin. Your suggestion would require time/resources spent to cover a special case scenario that would never happen again. And that was not going to happen. It isn't spin nor is it more complicated than that.

    Whatever happened to the days when Rift players were not conspiracy theorists?

    This "Trion is going out of their way to harm the player base" mentality is getting out of hand. Now even being given free stuff must be part of some grand scheme to mislead and harm you?

    Why are people even arguing about something that's free?

    A lot of MMO's don't give you anything for logging in.

    I disagree. I think you are greatly exaggerating the cost to try to sell a conclusion that it's the right thing not to do it.

    Yes, it's a one-time thing. That's also trying to find something to make the case why it's ok not to do it, but not much weight.

    It's a trivial effort to do it, and the simple fact is, the reason it wasn't is a lack of concern, in my opinion. Like I said, it's ok to take that position - just don't use false justifications.

    Maybe it is, but not from my post.

    That is nothing like what I said and it would be a lie to say otherwise..

    I made a general statement that was relevant to the topic at hand, and you chose to take it as a personal attack against you. I did not address you or your post, so why are you getting so defensive?

    There was a strong implication you were referring to my post, and I said that would be wrong. If you are confirming you were just happening to make a general point in this thread, ok.
