    LOL I never saw that graph before ban man, EVE is so spot on, however I still wouldn't say it was really to steep. I would say however it would probably be too steep for the game RIFT wants to be.

    Do we even know what that is? Genuine question. Has there been any 'mission statements' by the developers or Gallenite about what type of game they are making? IE hardcore, softcore, challenging, etc. Who is this game aimed at?

    Hartsman has mention it is focussed at Core Gamers, not to be confused with hardcore gamers. It is in one of the video interviews, should be on their youtube channel.

    I do not know the exact definition of the word, but it is between casual and hardcore. I interpit it as serious & wants a challange. I am confident someone can do a better job of describing it though.


    Casual---------------------------------------------------------------*----------------------------------------------------------Hardcore

    * == Core

    I still have good money on you not being able to cross archetypes with souls. That doesn't mean that certain buffing or utility souls won't be available to all, but I seriously doubt we're going to run into the main tank/primary healer type situation.

    I mean, I guess it would just be a guy who you know, grabs bananas and runs. Or, um, a banana that grabs things. I donít know.
    Why would a banana grab another banana? I mean, those are the kind of questions I donít want to answer.

    If you say plz instead of please, I say no because it's shorter than yes.

    No that is hardcore, which is not what Scor Hartsman meant at all in that interview.

    Yeah, I agree. I don't know if it has truly been defined. And if it has, it was most likely based on hours played per week or something similar.

    I would generally place "Core" gamer between "Casual" and "Hardcore".

    They play more then casuals but less than hardcore.

    actually im wondering if ONLY the third soul will be allowed to go outside your "calling".

    so if im a rogue i can go ranger (ugh) as my first soul, nightblade as my second and then with my third i can take the purifier, which would lessen my damage but open up some basic heals and buffs.

    where as if i would have taken say the "Dark Archer" Class (yes yes nothing like its been announced just an example) My damage would have stayed the same or escalated since all three would be in the rogue line of souls

    WTB the above item .... mine broke

    I do not think it only has to do with playtime, but also wiht expecations and how challenging they want their game to be.

    Oh sorry....I've never seen a game made for hardcore, but I have seen games made for casuals and core gamers.I would have said hardcore is a description of gameplay style, whereas core is a description of gamer type, as is casual. Think we seem to be having language issues today
