    Glad to hear you were naive enough to buy another of many excuses for the lack of content caused by the WaterCooler Club...

    As I have said many times, it the Trion team had set out to intentionally destroy Rift as a game they would do exactly what they actually did in trying to grow it. Stop defending these people. They wrecked the game, the company, and still people sit here defending them.

    Picked a great time for a holiday. Kicking back in Sharkeez in Grand Cayman with a morning Caybrew. Wonder if I will be able to login when I get back in a week. Seems like too much effort to give AF. Second Caybrew it is...

    Annnndddd, we have those that are naive enough to believe that blaming the playerbase (whom of which were banned and ignored) for the spin down the toilet. Go figure!

    Under Lars Buttler, we had excellent content delivery timelines which were further and fewer between post departure.
    Post Buttler, we had the advent of F2P. The subsequent "expansions" grew smaller and smaller. The gambling fetish became an epidemic. Content delivery has been paltry and for the last 1.5 years, nonexistent for the most part, yet we saw more cash grabs of desperation taking place with a blatant, wonton refusal to release content with the latest excuse being "broken tools". And there was nobody competent to repair the "broken tools"?

    You know parting is such sweet sorrow and after 8 years (including beta) its been such a big part of my recreation that its...well you get the idea.

    That being said - its not the first time I have walked away so with that in mind...I think its maybe...

    Wrong accusation .. TRION destroyed Rift, Gamigo are merely picking over the bones of Trion's empire looking for anything salvageable .. on that basis don't expect Rift to be loved very much, it's not the part of the games market Gamigo's parent corporates are looking for .. Gamigo is merely one cog in a LARGE structure and games per se are not the prime focus of that.

    They have fired all the Rift Team. We were supposed to get a dev letter in October, instead of that, Gamigo bought trion, but they don't communicate with the communauty. They fired Brasse, the one who are in charge of Rift communauty.
    We don't have any information since Gamingo bought Rift....
    Just a little word about what they planned to do with Rift would be enought. But no they do nothing. Keeping servers online is not a guaranted they will do something for Rift.
    Rift definitly need a new expansion. If they don't do something in that way, that's mean they have kill Rift.
    The fact they don't communicate if a very bad signal for the communauty.

    It was initial description. As we now know actual sequence was different.
    1) Trion went bankrupt and fired everybody.
    2) Gamingo bought trion's assets and rehired some former trion's people. As they understandable want to make profits they mainly focused on trove. Archage developed outside so it will continue to see updates too. Rest of the games will be milked without much investments into them.

    Bottom line - nothing good will happen to rift, but main reason is trion and not gamingo.

    some people say "no news is good news", but recent experience tells us that "No news is, possibly really bad"

    Lots of people waiting to find out if their almost 8 year journey is done...or if new owners (who surely must have an understanding of what they have bought) are going to release any kind of news...

    Probably worth noting that the Gamigo site still makes no mention in news pages yet about any of this yet...some two weeks on.
    As it turns out, yes, the letter was close at hand! Thanks for your patience.

    Do you think a Livestream may happen at some point in the near future?

    While I'm glad to see some sort of communication... but that vastly feels like a fill-in to hold people over.

    You think we'll get new content after the devs were stuck for a year and then suddenly laid off without a chance to even do any training for replacements, and I'm the one being naive?
