    they may no longer vote for what they would like to see, but vote for the next best thing, to prevent another name from becoming first.
    My rant about single-vote polls stands strong. People are voting for the best out of the two who have a chance to win at this point and not voting for their favorite name due to the spoiler effect from first past the post (FPTP). The people who didn't vote for either of the top two have much less power in determining the final outcome.

    The top choice right now has 148 out of 673 votes, which is 22.0%. If this holds, the winning name will have not been chosen by 78.0% of the voters. And a lot of future Prime players don't even know about this poll. Let's just stick with FPTP though, right? You can either implement a multiple-vote poll or ask everyone to rank the choices in order of preference and then do instant-runoff voting after all votes have been cast. Probably shouldn't show the results right after voting too.

    Actually the long rant about single-vote polls is a copy-paste of an email that someone else sent to a group about a vote for apples. I guess I wanted to spread it like a meme whenever it's relevant.

We know this is not the premier statistical choice, but hey... it's for fun.
    That's true. I would say the server name is not that important. Shard names have been pretty random anyway with no say from players. Also, since there is only one shard, the only time we would see the name is at the character select screen. People are probably just going to call it "Prime" anyway.

    I'd be guessing it would say NA, EU, PTS, Prime in the drop down menu, then when you log on you'll see the shard list with just the one shard, same as now when you log into NA or EU and see the shard list, just that Prime will have one....

    Or, it could have it's own Tab on Glyph so you'd see Rift - Rift Prime - Defiance - ArcheAge etc on the left menu.

    They might reveal all on the Live stream tomorrow.

    Trion made the anouncement for Rift livestream..

    and yes.. they changed the name from Rift Prime Server Name challenge to prime shard name

    guess trion has some issues defining shard and server...

    but as goes, with less than 2 hours to go before the poll closes..

    wintercharm @ 160 and meridian @ 142

    What will appear on Glyph, on the left side of the menu, where all Trion games are listed:
    RIFT
    RIFT Prime


    As long as you have RIFT updated, RIFT Prime will work. There is no separate patch required and both NA and EU play on the same RIFT Prime server.

    And the poll is now closed.

    Remember, this is the FIRST server for RIFT Prime. If it goes well, there will be more in future!
    Thank you again for taking part, I am going to close this thread now.
