    Default Blown away

    Hi all, time for my first post

    I was only recently introduced to Rift when I came across some videos on another forum and I have to say I was totally blown away with how good it looked. I am always on the lookout for new MMOs and have played a few in the past. While I may come across one here and there which appears to have potential, in the end they havent really delivered.

    I guess, like alot of people, my start in MMOs came with WoW back in 2005. I dont hate the game, I still quite enjoy playing, but mostly I play because of a special person I game with Over the years I have been casual, hardcore, raider, solo-player, guilded, unguilded and have taken many long breaks from the game only to get sucked back in again due to the lack of anything better lol

    During my breaks I tried other games - LotRO, WAR, AoC, Fury, Eve - some were good, some not-so-good lol. None were able to keep my interest. Some just felt unfinished or broken in some way. I dont think any have had the smooth gameplay that came with WoW.

    Watching Rift I got a feeling more like what I have been looking for. It looks incredibly smooth, and different enough to pique my interest. After a couple of days looking at videos and looking through everything on the website, I saw the option to pre-oder a digital copy. It didnt take me long to make up my mind, I purchased my collector's edition and am now happily waiting to give things a shot.

    I really hope it lives up to expectations. I am looking forward to many evenings in a new world

    We all love WoW. I played it myself 4 year and I had the time of my life. Welcome! Rift looks so promising. Beta feedback is simply positive.

    Welcome to the club! Hope you will enjoy your time in Telara! I know I have loved every single hour I've been able to play in the closed betas so far. See you in game next beta event, I guess?

    This. Both customer support and the community are most of the time usually very helpful.

    The downloading was buggy for the first two of Betas, but the patcher seems to be working well now. Just try and download it in one go, if you shut down your computer and they try to start again you could have issues. When they have patched the game it usually starts a new download folder. If you are on a slower connection, I would suggest backing up the whole RIFT folder once it installs; you can just copy it over and "recover" if you have any issues.

    That said, the game has been incredibly stable more 99% of the people and each Beta is getting better with regard to graphics optimization.

    Welcome!
