Thank you for the update!
Thank you for the update!
Address F2P? Just because there's some thread on the forum doesn't mean it is even remotely a possibility, which it obviously isn't. If it was going to happen I'm sure it would have been mentioned.
What's there to say about the game population? "It has gone up and down since release." No sh*t.
Herpzalot - 53 Cleric
Bongmaster - 60 Mage
Tronzilla - 60 Warrior
Icecubetray - 60 Rogue
Stickybudz - 46 Cleric
1) Are there any plans for high-end, competitive PvP in Rift (Arena, rated Warfronts, or some other idea)?
2) Can we expect a new tier of raiding with 2.3 or will there be a new 10m added to the existing tier (as is implied by the achievements on the PTS for a new death-themed 10m)?
3) What about shutting up the trolls for at least a few months and telling them that Trion has zero plans for F2P in the foreseeable future (not that it would even matter as I would still play Rift even if it were)?
I'm sure the list could go on.
Thanks for your time, Daglar!

The Ascended Chronicle - A Blog for Everything Rift
Main: Synovia, 60 Rogue (p72 - I gave up because Rift PvP is a boring, skilless zerg)
Alts: Tharvolde, 60 Cleric :: Synoviah, 52 Rogue :: Arkane, 51 Mage :: Barackobahmi, 50 Warrior
While i'm glad to hear that 2.2 and 2.3 are being worked on and thought about i am some what saddened by the lack of any substantial information on how the game is doing. I mean i was expecting a quick but informative recap of the last year and some real plans/goals for this year and we just didn't get that. With the whole Scott thing yesterday i guess i was just hoping for a little more of a reassurance that the game and team are still going to push on like it did with him here but even the state of the game address is lacking.

Would have really liked a little more about the direction the game is going in. No mention of PvP content? But at least we know what to expect for the next couple updates.
FT 2/4 EE 2/5
I'm not a doom and gloomer but the writing is on the wall unfortunately. Trion layed off more than 40 of the RIFT development team, the LEAD left, just as he left EQ2 before it went F2P.
I'm not even saying F2P would be bad for the game, I'm just saying everyone I've talked too has noticed there is an aura of unknown about RIFT atm and it's direction.
Even if you look in terms of content, 2.2 is slated to be one of the lighted content patches since RIFT was released.
This "State of the game" did not address the STATE of the game. Is RIFT growing? You don't have to give up numbers... What is the CURRENT stance on F2P? What is beyond 2.2, 2.3? What KIND of content are you going to add, just in terms of direction.
This was not a state of the game at all because it told us nothing about the current state (health) of RIFT.
The first state of the game from 2012 was a HUGE list of direction and improvements.
Now compare THAT to the few words we got out of Daglar?
How can anyone even argue they are comparable?
1570 words vs 421 words.
This is a joke.
Very thankful for this Daglar, the most reassuring thing is that no F2P model was announced. I know it's still a possibility, but I think that if it was going to be soon, today would've been the day to announce it.
Gotta agree with others on my disappointment with the length/depth though, past ones were way way more informative. I mean you have this one from summer 2011, and this is last year's around this time. Hopefully it can be made up with regular doses of info all throughout the following months.
Well said, Daglar. Good luck with this game and with your future after Rift.
I didn't expect a generic 2.2 preview as state of the game post lol.
We are sorry for invading your privacy with our useless bot detection and all it did was hurt our player base. We are sorry for constantly putting out broken content and not addressing it for months and staying silent. We will try harder in the future.
But nope a generic 2.2 preview is considered the State of the Game!
But hey the Carnival is coming guys we are GTG!

That was barely a patch note.
<3 Everyone there.
But still read much longer patch notes..
Did Amary proof this?
Chocolate Cleared - SL: 4/4TotDQ(Hardmode) 4/4FT 5/5EE - RIP Rift
Wow all that anticipation to just be let down with a vague, un-descriptive and half-assed post.
I'm assuming this is what to expect from Trion now that Scott Hartsman is no longer there?
How about some details of what you guys are planing over the next year, what your working on etc.
