    Default Nightmare Tide Extends Open Beta, Launch Set for Oct 22!

    Hail Ascended, and thanks for your awesome feedback from the Nightmare Tide Open Beta so far. We’ve been listening to your feedback, which is so incredibly valuable to us, and are working to address your suggestions and concerns. As a result, we’ve decided to extend Open Beta for an additional two weeks, which means the launch date for Nightmare Tide will be pushed back to Oct. 22.

    Our goal is to make Nightmare Tide the best expansion you’ve played, and our new launch date gives us time to batten down the hatches … and blow you out of the water.
    In the meantime, jump into Beta, give us feedback, and help ensure we make this the best expansion we possibly can – together. We want and will act on your feedback as Nightmare

    Tide storms ashore!

    You know this feeling when you laugh so hard that you throw up a little in your mouth?

    Yay, personally I'd prefer something be polished rather than rushed. Good on you Trion.

    I'd rather see NT come out on the 8th as originally announced. Announcing a 2 week delay with less than a week to go is ridiculous when the original date was announced over a month ago. The original launch date should be reinstated.

    Default Thanks.

    So waiting till 6 days before release is rather ridiculous, people build schedules around release of new content, and now that its all set, you back out? :/

    I appreciate Trion wanting to ensure there is enough testing done and release the best product they can! Thanks

    You guys have no idea how good this news is. The expansion was nowhere near ready to launch next week and anyone that's played more than 10 hours on the PTS would easily agree with this decision. This is BRILLIANT news for the game.

    Good call on delaying the expansion - 10/10.

    I still personally think it needs to be delayed another month and a half to ride out Warlords of Draenor, but this announcement makes me super happy.

    Edit:

    On second thought. This is a personal request.

    Remove this BS Arbitrary 22nd release date deadline. It means nothing.

    How about when the expansion is finished, ready and everything is decently polished THEN announce the launch 2 weeks after that. That sounds like a lot better idea to me than continually pushing it back if the second deadline flops.

    I'd rather Trion work toward releasing a quality expansion than trying to rush it out the door in a semi-acceptable state as soon as possible.

    I'm saying all this because I care and I want RIFT 3.0 to be a success. It has AMAZING potential. It needs a lot more loving tho.

    Well, yes - from what I know, this xpac needs a LOT of work yet.

    Dang it, my original prediction was October 29th. Push it out another week please. I hate being wrong, or at least that is what my psychic says I hate.
