    Default MMO Champion

    LOL MMO champion moderators are closing all Rift threads and moving them to their own section created by a moderator of the forums...opinions?

    They didn't want their forums cluttered with threads about rift, so they made one section of their forum dedicated to rift threads? I don't see the problem here O.o

    I asked why earlier and they stated that MMO Champion is actually WOW Champion but they used MMO "just in case".

    Liked this post from Dammagia:

    Reasons why Rift > WoW

    1: AOE looting
    2: No Ghostcrawler
    3: Like WoW but with shinier graphics
    4: Customizable UI out of the box
    5: Less people playing
    6: Rifts
    7: Itís not WoW
    8: Itíll be free in 6 months like Aion is now
    9: No Knaak
    10: Character customization
    11: Rogue tanking
    12: No gnomes
    13: It has a shorter name and sounds dirty
    14: No Druid shapeshift nerfs
    15. Reclaiming Materials from Old Gear you just upgraded
    16: The talent system is mind-blowing
    17: Troll channels can be closed without affecting trade
    18: No arena
    19: Offensive healers
    20: Good tree graphics
    21: Amazing, smooth and diverse animations
    22: Water actually looks like water
    23: Squirrels on fire
    24: The map! It zooms!
    25: The login screen
    26: No ice lance
    27: The male Mathosian dance
    28: One-click import for UI.
    29: Better lore
    30: No taxi system
    31: Not limited to 1 talent tree
    32: General chat is tolerable
    33: Bards
    34: Nobody manipulating the economy...at least for now.
    35: INVAAASIOOOOONS
    36: Alliance look cool
    37: Items you can buy to open rifts
    38: Necromancers
    39: Hearthstone doesnít take an inventory slot
    40: Support classes
    41: Healer mage
    42: Awesome racials
    43: 'Tis new and fresh
    44: quad spec, allowing ANY combination of souls you've acquired, not just the 3 active.
    45: being able to acquire more than 3 souls in the first place
    46: talent tree decision making (you need 31 points in a tree to get to the top, but you need 51 points (ie, one spec entirely) to acquire every spell that tree has to offer)
    47: PvP only souls, which implies that balance between pve and pvp may wind up not impacting each other later on.
    48. The beginner backpack has 20 slots
    49. When one member enters an instance, other members get teleported in.
    50. no elitists
    51.Awesome death "Rifts", with even more awesome dangerous creaturs spawning from them
    52: Even the first 2 dungeons have tactics that will wipe you when people fail and are more difficult that cata heroics where at the start.
    53: Being able to do decent dps as a healer when I have the tank fully hotted.
    54: Join public raid option for rifts.
    55: Never needing more than 4 characters to enjoy every class aspect of the game.
    56. The forums aren't full of people who can't read instructions even when in the title
    57. only 6 Races, plenty of room to expand
    58. Trolls drop Goat Gruff (read your fairy tales)
    59. The ability to stack items in units higher than 20.
    60. Devs listen to community
    61. Doesnt take 2 months to fix obvious problems
    62. No flying everywhere
    63. World PvP
    64. PvP Players have a loot table
    65. Cleric tanking
    66. Devs speak to us across our screens and are actually funny and engaging.
    67. no gearscore, very few a-holes in the beta, feels more like an old school mmo
    68. Dynamic cycle of dominant builds in pvp like in GW.
    69. CHLOROMANCERS!
    70. A rogue, two mages, a cleric and a warrior walk into a Dungeon. The rogue tanks, the cleric melees, one mage heals, the other debuffs/controls (find me a WHOLE CLASS in wow that has more than the odd CC and interrupt - I'm talking a whole 2 mage souls dedicated to shutting down the opposition) and the Warrior nomnomnoms you with Dot's and Pets.
    71. no undead
    72. no Slyvanas and her emo fanboys.
    73. Loads of wow fanboys will stay away (haters gonna hate)
    74. Dances with Squirrels title!
    75. More D&D high fantasy than steampunk comedy
    76. No "a more powerful spell is in existence" which GC lied about going in cata.
    77. Poisons stay on daggers until YOU swap them, no refresh every 60 mins
    78. it's absolutely beautiful, even on the low-end graphics
    79. Critter Tears Artifacts.
    80. Faction Vendors in the big cities
    81. More fantasy-like than the high-tech technology WoW
    82. Armor and weapons look more real than the WoW gear
    83. Buyable blues for low levels
    84. Get mounts in three different levels, lvl20, 40 and 50. 60%, 100% and 110%
    85. Clerics "blink" with random direction and range.
    86.The Rift elements will fight among them selfs (fire will attack water...ect) and can take over towns.
    87. It's something different after almost 6 Years
    88. Players will have to learn the fight as there will be no "deadly boss mods" addons (skill>addons)
    89. Soul system can be added to in future expansions
    90. Artifact collections > Archaeology and give ANY class epic gear!
    91. Cool old stuff mixed up with cool high tech stuff (teleporting machines, high tech technology).
    92. Nightblades stealth does not last forever, it lasts 60 seconds and after you leave it its on a 10s CD.
    93. You don't need to reroll fotm, only respec in most cases.
    94. "Hunters" Can shoot in melee range
    95. Sounds muffled underwater adds to realism.
    96. Recap: The new Guild banner idea in rift is unreal, and I'm shocked wow devs have not thought about it to bring back world pvp and improve guilds.
    97. No "gaps" in professions (name one crafted staff in WoW for example, archaeology doesn't count obviously)
    98. The Shattering (pre-Cata event) ... ALL DAY LONG
    99. No Garrosh or Varian (hopefully!)
    100. NO FROST MAGES or ring of frost
    101. Taunts actually doing something (AWESOME) in PVP! As someone who has always played Tank in PVE, being able to do it in PVP makes me SO excited.
    102. No Tol-Barad which is completely unbalanced (attacker at huge disadvantage)
    103. Able to put what stats you want on gear from the start of your profession.
    104. I'll be playing a new game. So we're all newbs!
    105. Pve changes that only affect pve servers and pvp changes that affect only pvp servers. BEAT THAT BLIZZARD!
    106. Armor dyes - OMG we may not all look identical for a change!
    107. Exploration is awarded with artifacts and other hidden goodies
    108. You won't get Uber Gear for less than Uber Effort (dev quote)
    109. Level requirements have been removed from the previously-level 20 mounts. If you can get to them, and can afford them, you can use them. This includes the Collector's Edition turtle mount.
    110 (?). It's only just beginning so can only really improve if devs continue to listen to players. (I hope)
    111. something- Level 1 gold spammers? Easy to ignore since no1 really talks in capital city chat
    112. Related to 111. - lvl 1-9 chat can be turned off, basically the chat is broken down so that you can view only the character level you wish to view. Basically you can turn off low level Gold spammers and "Barrens" chat.
    113. Looting while mounted.
    114. Every zone has a Ward boss you can summon if you can control all the wardstones.
    115. No ******ed trolls that think their inept comments are rofltastico status.
    116. The game is totally engaging right out of the gates, there is always something to do, its fun, lively and all around just a blast to be playing!
    117. All Endgame raids will be 20 man, no "easymode 10m" versions.
    118. Specific 10m content
    119. Loot is dynamically awarded based on your contribution to the group
    120. Same Gear stats are used for both Caster clerics and Melee clerics o_O !! Spell stats are converted to Melee stats via the soul tree.
    Spell crit = melee crit , spellpower = attack power, etc....
    121. Continuously changing world, rift vs rift combat, horde vs alliance feel again. Like in wow, vanilla, horde had shamans, alliance had palis. I like the gods vs technology conflict in Rift, reflects real life well.
    122. The players realise an MMORPG is a video game

    I didn't read the rest of that list after saying Ghostcrawler was a bad thing for WoW. He is/was an excellent developer who kept an absolutely unheard of/unprecedented connection and openness with the playerbase. That should be commended.

    I think its interesting cuz MMO champion has an off topic section which should mean off topics...one poster is right even tho it says MMO champion it is WOW champion...just nice to see all the fluttering people are doing over Rift coming out...nice to ruffle some feathers

    It's their forums, they can do what they want. Besides, it is owned by Curse, and they have their fingers in many pies. I doubt they are anti-Rift. It's only a matter of time before Curse starts collecting Rift fan-sites. At least MMO-Champ created a thread for Rift discussion.
    Cataclysm broke WoW, but resilience will fix it!

    Try defending Rift on MMORPG.com's Rift specific forum. I was banned for "trolling" after posting on an obvious troll thread that the forums on MMORPG.com were filled with trolls.
