    Thumbs up Survey Concerning Rift Prime Service

    Now that Prime has been announced and the target audience identified I'd like to suggest that Trion put out a survey to the current and past player base asking what they would like to see from the new Prime service.

    Some of the questions I'd like to see asked are;

    1. Would you be more likely to subscribe to Prime if it included a permanent shard?
    2. Would you be more likely to subscribe to Prime if the content was released at a faster or traditional pace like chocolate Rift?
    3. Depending on the ruleset, should the XP rate be increased or kept normal?
    4. How do you feel about mob scaling, should Prime include it?
    5. Which store items are acceptable with the subscription service?


    Other than getting important feedback concerning the right direction for Prime a mail shot of this nature would help to generate more interest I'm sure

    1. Yes, but not really by much.
    2. I don't always have time and I'd get left behind rather quickly.Traditional.
    3. Increase XP
    4. If mob scaling can be done it should be done and XP/Loot should reflect the increase when scaled.
    5. Absolutely nothing that isn't cosmetic. Everything should be available through purchase some way. And not "well you can buy a rex". No REX either IMO.

    Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? All the things with the exception of the few modifications they're trying out (like autoscaling) are already in the game. IMO it feels like a paid PTS server. Great if they can get balanced scaling, but that should be part of the core game, not a paid separate thing that will explode in a year.

    So much this! I really want to go back to the days where farming actually meant something.

    I doubt they would do this, although your points and questions are valid. The entire Prime concept is a trial, it's meant to see what works and is popular. If it takes off who knows what is in the future.

    1) I DISLIKE the idea of my character disappearing after several months. I would prefer the way Diablo 3 does it. Seasonal characters are converted into NS characters. Items in your stash are sent to you through "mail". I know people hate on Diablo 3. I am just saying I would like that method as far as saving the progress. Who wants to play for months then POOF... all gone?

    My #1 concern is question 1.

    2) As long as it isn't so fast it is hard to keep up with the releases.

    3) I like the XP amount on the sub now.

    4) Scaling is fine with me.

    5) Cosmetic only. ONLY

    Honestly this all depends and is conditional upon so many aspects that I can't really answer any of those questions without more information. I do know that I absolutely would not pay to play a temporary character. The reason I play MMORPGs is not to rush through the game and quit. Everyone is different though.

    Personally I don't like the whole concept and I'd much rather see focus on live. I feel like there's been so many great suggestions by the community that could result in a great game experience but it seems trion has no serious interest in taking them seriously. I get they need funding to operate but I think yet again they're going about it the wrong way.

    As far as the shop it also depends but I hate the micro transaction online casino business model with a passion even cosmetics I don't fully agree with. Personally I don't enjoy paying-to-loot. What's fun about running dungeons and raids to me is not getting the same skinned gear I've had for months with some minor upgrades but instead going after the shineys. I enjoy doing hard content to loot rare skins. I hate the fact that you can be level one with a full toks set on. Toks and the vp jetpack are examples of what I do like. RNG boxes/loot boxes are the death of gaming IMO. Im old school. I prefer buying a game and playing it to get the shiney stuff. Playing a gimped version of a game or paying for a game only to be smacked with "insert coin to loot" is insulting to me. But again everyone is different me personally I see no appeal in that aspect

    After thinking and rethinking it all over again I can see something good in this idea.

    Put yourself in gaming ten years ago..mmorpg's on pc were it even out gamed the best console games.

    Come to 2018 and the gaming industry has changed big time..

    The antidote is to stay afloat and become apart of the 2018 gamer mentality.

    I'm an old old gamer lol...yep I played all the first mmorpgs back in the day, some say I'm ancient or even a relic but I do keep up with the times. feel me?

    1 yes, only if no eol.
    2 faster, but not cramped up in 1 year
    3 without boosts, normal xp if permanent shard.
    If cramped up in one year with eol, not interested at all, so no opinion on that situation.
    4 depends on what you mean with mob scaling.
    5 nothing really. but if people want the dimensions, wardrobes etc on prime as well, those should be available with ingame acquired currencies or quest/achievement rewards.
