    Default Comparison, similarities in WoW and Rift.

    Just for lulz since there seems to be people who get cardiac arrest every time someone mentions WoW or compares Rift to WoW.
    So let's start listing everything that the two share:

    Both WoW and Rift have...

    female characters
    male characters
    elves
    humans
    hair
    not as awesome character customization as in APB
    a patcher
    facial hair
    characters who aren't nude even when undressed completely
    both have forums
    action bars
    options with graphic, sound, keyboard settings
    bags
    lootable items
    monsters
    skeletons of some degree or another
    armor
    man-dresses (robes)
    eyes on character faces
    a mmap
    auction house
    bank
    skills
    the grindable skills like tailoring can't remember the right name atm
    WASD(Q+E)
    talent tree
    trees
    grass
    dirt
    dragons
    wolves
    critters
    sandbox world
    storyline (lore?)
    pre-ordering
    multiple characters on one account
    pvp

    ...btw half of that applies to GTA: San Andreas too.

    So yea, please continue listing what ever you notice.
    I don't see any reason to feel insecurities regarding WoW comparisons just because Rift was made a long while after WoW and they share similarities. It's NATURAL they'd share similarities. It's MMORPG.

    Rift does have some things that are almost identical to WoW, but it has plenty of differences too. It's a conglomeration of like 5 different MMOs, and it's awesome.

    This is basically a thread to wonder what are people so serious about, yes definitely for lulz because there is not a single reason to have that cardiac arrest just because WoW is compared to Rift AND CAN BE VICE VERSA.


    Instead of having a seizure why not just think "yea, they both have modelled trees, so similar, lol."

    *yawn*

    Do we have to do it again. And again, and again? give it a rest eh? There are similarities with many, many games. I'm sure i can find some similarities with Cluedo. At the end of the day it does not matter one iota what the similarities are as long as people enjoy the ride.

    WoW had a Rift invasion event during the Cata launch.

    Umm lighten up If you read his list it's obvious he's making fun of the people raging over things. Honestly I started reading the list and laughed.
