    I have toons on all NA shards total 91. Each serves a purpose and I really don't want to lose any. Putting them on one shard would be great or perhaps when consolidation occurs balance remaining shards to accommodate a balance of current total of 91 toons for those of us who are nuts in what we do.

    I haven't personally played too many mmos with a ton of character slots one one server. Upon looking up some other games, EQ2 popped up with: https://www.mmorpg.com/everquest-ii/...ots-1000018191

    I don't think they should be doing more nickle and diming, but maybe introducing unlimited slots as part of Patron (past the initial 12) would be incentive. If you're not patron, the characters would just be locked, but not deleted until you resub. This is assuming they decided to do a mega shard. I'm sure others can come up with plenty of other ideas much better than that, but just something off the top of my tired brain. A scrolling character list would be nice as previously mentioned: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnxKPmMlTFY

    Yeah, they could simply call it "making patron even better", and see how far it gets them

    On a more serious note, doing this would require much more than a scrolling list. I for one have toons on every EU server, but a couple of them are what I consider my "mains". If I log in one day to find 12 of my other toons as the active ones, while my mains are locked behind a patron barrier, I would be severely p*ssed.

    IMO Gamigo needs to invest something into the game, just to prove that they care. Continuing the Trion road (taking away stuff, while slapping price tags anywhere, with just some lame PR blah-blah as justification) is not going to work, at least not for me.

    Certainly not my best idea, but hence why I mentioned:

    I'm in the same boat as other people with 60+ characters across the servers and I use them all to help farm holidays wardrobes and carnival stuff whenever that comes around. I've pumped in quite a bit of money/time so I wouldn't ever want to see them deleted or be forced into doing so.

    The old livestream format will not be returning for the time being.

    Hi Liluri & Team

    Thank you for this post before the Christmas break allowing some peace of mind during this time. Folks are addressing many things so I want to zero in on the livestream decision for a number of reasons that might be better approached with questions first so here goes:

    ________________________________________________

    Why not keep the Trion Worlds channel & all games on one channel?

    I am guessing it is not possible to just change the channel name like one might a personal channel legally but I see Gamigo has a channel. Could all games not be put on it?

    ________________________________________________

    I missed no more than a handful of livestream Fridays & tuned in for all of them since they began so I observed a ton of things. Over the years there was not only a positive moral benefit but also a great marketing benefit allotting a time slot to a game & allowing players to see other games they hadn't played while they waited/stopped watching for the game they specifically tuned in for. Sure, there was the added annoyance of folks asking something for/demanding their main game during another's but it also became part of the "charm" of all the [Trion Worlds] Gamigo communities gathering in one spot.

    Without one centralized location I fear Gamigo are not interested in getting to know/understand the people in their communities which is something we appreciated greatly about Trion Worlds.

    I also understand the new teams are still settling and Redwood moved offices so Austin was holding the "twitch livestream fort" but going into 2019 I'd really like to suggest/encourage reconsideration of not having all Gamigo games on one channel so Rift can have a monthly stream - a bi-monthly stream (etc) & you could consider including your other games at time slots that suit you so we can get to know them too.

    Having no livestream at all for Rift is a huge loss for you and for us but If we truly do not stand any chance of ever getting any Rift livestream in the future what will Gamigo do in its place to encourage community events/creations/giveaways? Will you utilize social media more, the blog or forums?

    Getting to know you and knowing who is on the Rift team I hope is at the top of the 2019 list of what the community needs.

    Thank you.

    One big post of evasion. A way to give people hope, just like how you guys said how you were working hard on the Yule Event. Where it translated into making sure last years event launch without any bugs/issues for this years event.

    Default Just One Question

    I am curious to know who is in charge of the Addon UI? I am truly loving Imhothar's Bag UI, But it is not doing its job of showing just one bag which is the whole purpose of it. I REALLY Hate seeing fifteen Bags all open when I try to use my bank.

    Right now-- I realize that it is not being actively developed (Although, I am Praying that someone takes up the Mantle and makes it work properly ) so I am asking until such time can you at least fix it so that the Trion Window Interface disappears while using this Add On. Please.

    Also, I am not one of the ones who like to Flame you for doing your jobs as I realize that you are simply just as human as we are and that well...sometimes Life Happens whether we want it to or not. So without further Ado--Thank you for all the hours you pour into this game and the hard work of trying to ensure the bugs are fixed.

    i agree locking characters randomly or not is a bad idea maybe have active and inactive slots. where the inactive characters go to deleted shards but the character menu is still there. then let people move character back and forth. you could even keep the 7 day shard hop debuff but you'll have to see if people are ok with getting lock out of a atl for a week.

    Unhappy This makes me so sad. Almost April 2019.

    I did not participate in Beta, but I started playing on initial release day. I participated in world and NA firsts with the #1 and #2 raiding guilds in NA. I was a chloro and pyro mage and loved this game to its core. I quit playing in 2013 after the game became F2P.This makes me so sad how far Trion has fallen. I have been missing Rift periodically since I quit. The store and events pushing purchases was a nuisance and hiderence to my fun and happiness. I decided to look into the game again the day that Rift Prime is set to close.

    It looks as though Trion and whoever this Gamigo company is are content with allowing the game to die off completely. Imho, this game had the potential to be the best MMO ever made is the one I personally had the most fun playing. I spent weeks and months with my guilds learning and perfecting raid bosses after spending days/weeks grinding the best out of raid items.

    Looking at it now, it is a greed grab gone wrong like so many other current titles and companies. YOU PULLED 100 MILLION IN ONE YEAR!! THAT WAS ON A GAME COSTING 60-70 MILLION IN PRODUCTION!! You could have put time and money into expanding the game, fixing bugs, separating pvp/over balance issues so that both were not broken, adding in Arena style pvp, and so much more.

    Instead? F2P garbage with loot boxes. Store centered gameplay. Pay to win shenanigans. Single player reward focus. Killing off of game difficulty and the core fun of the game which was the group interaction requirements. The game is based on rifts and badass world events.

    Eff you. Seriously. Go eff yourself.

    P.s. I wanted to put so much more and real hate and salt at the end but hoping this doesnt get nodded out.

    P.S.S. Please fix the game or make a new Rift on a better engine with better graphics along the same story line. I would happily pay 15, 30, 50, or even 100 dollars a month to have this. (Obviously, the latter prices would keep a lot of people out). I would also accept it being F2P and having 75-85% of the cosmetics in the game monetized with non loot boxes...AND I WOULD PROBABLY BUY MOST OF THEM!! I have spent about 20-30 grand on PoE, LoL, and other games that have ethical non gameplay related monetization. Why? I want to support ethical Developers. I want my kids and friends to see that as well.

    Publishers, loot boxes, gambling, greed, shareholders, and quarterly earnings reports are ruining the best of the video game industry.

    This, and the majority of your complaints, is solely on Trion which no longer exists. So you are about 6 months too late to the party.

    Default PvP

    Can you add what you are thinking about PVP? Trion decided to neglect PVP the last couple years and it so happens it coincided with the large drop in the player base(may not be the cause but i'm sure it didn't help). PVP needs a good bit of class balance done so healing by any other class than Farseer is viable again and a few DPS classes like blade dancer get toned down a hair. PVP was always a weird one to neglect in my opinion because at the time that stance by Trion started pretty much every new game is open world PVP making billions like Fortnight and PUBG. I think fixing PVP would go a long way to bringing in more players.
