    That's a lie. I do not do PR because I am not employed by gamigo.

    That is an absurd interpretation.

    Why 3 months? Why not 6 or 12?

    But you not an investor in gamigo's parent company, Media and Games Invest (MGI), are you?

    Gamigo just shut down 4 games, which was about 25% of their MMORPGs at the time. Without those 4, they have about 13 by my count.

    Why would they shut down Rift next when there are several MMORPGs bringing is less revenue than Rift, i.e. Pirate101, Last Chaos, Echo of Soul and Shaiya?

    If gamigo keeps closing MMORPGs, they won't be much of a game company anymore, and their business strategy of Buy, Integrate, Build and Improve may be questioned by investors.

    Sometimes I ask myself if Gamigo PR thinks the majority of their customers is stupid.

    Your "General Screenshot Compendium" is really weird with warfront scoreboards with HA HA HA written all over them making fun of a player who ranked below you. No wonder warfronts often go begging for players.

    I swear every dead game or game that is about to die has one completely cuckoo fanboi like you. It's such a cliche it isn't even funny anymore.

    ...and just as I had mentioned, the thread gets overwhelmed by baseless, personal attacks - and when the one guy citing facts and reasoning objectively (which seems to be enough grounds to get you hate in this day and age) replies by showing how his attackers proceed, yet somebody else jumps in and mocks him for "deflecting" when all there was to "deflect" is a grotesque meme.

    Funny how those ready to accuse a player - who's playing the game and trying to positively contribute to it - of being PR are the ones actually doing combative, personal, subjective, uncalled for PR against the game, which is understandable since most if not all of them don't or haven't played the game in a long time; dare you try to engage in a "debate" with them and they will, also readily, insist on the same flawed logic and draw the "I'm going away for months, good luck" card.

    It just falls flat on me why people who no longer care to play the game are so worried and passionate about calling the game "dead" and even asking for it to be shut down, whilst there are hundreds if not thousands of others (who are not here typing away because they're enjoying the game) who still play it regularly and are happy to invest time, energy and money in it. So, since you as out-of-the-game critics hold your right to speak up so dearly, allow me as a player to speak back: you guys represent no one other than your very own frustration - you don't even represent yourselves when you have quit the game, which you frequently mention as if that'd make your claim to "pull the plug" any more legitimate... talk about "living in a fantasy world."

    If you wanna dip back in and offer some perspective, try to do it without attacking players or even the studio/publisher - and that includes not asking for a shut down, which makes the premise for this whole thread absurd by principle.

    Welcome to the age of social media, where "fake news" is the standard answer when people run out of arguments (or, more likely, never had any to begin with).

    I'm still baffled how Gamigo stirred up so much hate, when they were the ones that at least kept the lights on, while Trion on the other hand totally and royally f*cked up; Rift being on life support now is a direct result of Trion's failures, nothing else.
    But no, look here, page 719345 of Gamigo's annual report, paragraph 217c, line 11 clearly proves they are evil, and led by the devil himself.

    Probably not. Did our CMs and Devs all quit though? Because they have no presence and communicate less then every other player on the forums. One would think they dont actually have a job.

    They probably do have daytime 9-5 jobs, which is why they don't have time for this, lol!

    I don't understand getting rid of rift and keeping a turd like trove. The graphics look like colecovision or first gen nintendo. The file is so small there can't be much to the game.

    I have been out of Rift for a long time, but it is a game that holds a special place in my heart. I am sad to see that it is just in maintenance mode at this point. It's a shame it has essentially been abandoned, which honestly happened well before the Gamigo takeover. I don't think the OP is pouting at all.

    Seeing the once great game reduced to what it is now just makes me sad. I don't want them to pull the plug, but it is clear the game has no future. Rift is a special game, and I'm glad I got to have the experiences I did have with it. The writing is definitely on the wall though.
