    Default Rift turns 5 years old 2016 - Suggestions for those who have played since launch.

    Reading The Behind the Scenes post with Darkmoon got me reminiscing and thinking about the milestone that Rift will pass next year that will come around quickly.

    I wondered if it was possible for special rewards to be given to those who have played this whole time in the form of a title/cape/portrait or perhaps a forum title?

    Maybe even the ability to get our original server as a title?

    Cheers.

    It's pretty far away still to start speculating.

    Not speculation, suggestion knowing things take time.

    by no means game veteran, but i support this. Loyalty should be rewarded.

    And yea... suggestions like these don't come when it's almost time to implement them. This is right time to discuss it.

    Thumbs up

    Is it too pre-mature for a statue of our 1st character rolled. Oh nvm, we haven't reached 10 years. But not bad, 5 is good.

    A title would be nice with a special cape.

    Poor BC, came to my attention when Tacitus mentioned...

    We have a few new small offerings for Carnival this year, but are already planning towards next year for a major Carnival update to celebrate our fifth anniversary.

    Oops just realized you said something I don't think a title of original server (which in my case was closed down) would be any form of status, EU shards got this when they were closed in more recent years.

    The other ideas on my behalf would have no impact and are just ideas.

    Don't agree to the loyalty suggestion.

    Pure speculation (and largely just hopefulness).

    Trion will make a brand new game called "Rift II". It will ditch the Gamebryo engine in favor of something that actually works well on modern hardware (like 4 or 8 CPU cores and 2-4 GPU cores) and takes a 64-bit OS to run so it can USE 8 or 16GB of RAM effectively.

    Then they will make a story line where there is a massive war, and we all have to hop into Defiant tubes that will freeze us while the war rages on. When we emerge, the war will be over, and Telara will be a wasteland and changed forever. Our own memories will be slightly affected, and we will now see ourselves in bright and shiny new graphics for modern hardware.

    That's that back story. Basically Trion ditches that current game engine, exports our characters, and imports them into the new game engine.

    A evolving portrait, can be base off each day that you played, for each 365 days it evolve a level. Can show support that way how long you been in the game.

    I want an epic video from Trion. They have a year, they can start on it now. I already did a Retrospective so I expect them to top it.

    ******

    Actually, while it would probably be a PITA to implement... the lead-up to the 5-year anniversary should be re-enactment/re-releases/whatever-you-wanna-call-it of the various updates. Starting with the River of Souls World Event up through wherever we happen to be at the actual five-year mark.

    Call it "The Passing of Time" or something.

    ******

    New portrait frame, based on the "Bonus Meter" from Nightmare raids. It starts at empty when you first get an account. For every year you play, it fills and then restarts with a new fill color.

    lets look at what they have for loyalty right now. Completing Black tier gets you a title, 36 slot bag, I think a permanent boost of 15% to all XP, Notoriety & token gains, the ability to summon a portable auctioneer, +50 AH bids, & a portrait frame.

    Those are some pretty powerful items/abilities, & people who have them have spent some serious cash on the game. I don't see Trion giving out anything above those, but some special mount , or title, or portrait frame would be possible, maybe even probable.

    We'll get wings that make the sign "V" starting from the center of our backs. Guardians get more angelic wings and defiants get flame/vfx based crystal wings.

    Oh are we posting what we wish to see? Hmm... A new zone!

    - they should make a new zone that is big (Ember Isle size)
    - it should have a fantasy style like Silverwood
    - Rifts are more powerful in it and invasions actually mean something again, and fury of the ascended is disabled so nobody can easymode it
    - players must choose some side (make some random NPC factions) and full PvP between the sides is enabled throughout the zone
    - there are dangerous zone events, like the major events that used to run in Silverwood / Gloamwood at launch, with lots of big monsters
    - there is a new currency for buying cool stuff (not necissarily gear upgrades) but whenever you die in the zone, you lose some of this currency (like abyss points in Aion)

    So what I want is a sense of danger, risk vs reward, open world PvP, and the return of rifts, invasions and zone events as relevant game elements.

    I guess I'll keep on dreaming...
