I would say its with a heavy heart that VoTF are leaving RIFT but with the huge amount of promise this game had it has sadly turned out to be another generic game without anything worth while PvP.
The balance of the game has not been the best and with rumours of the same person balancing classes that balanced WarHammer then I have no hope for the future of PvP in this game.
Open world PvP is a simply requirement to keep any hardcore PvPer entertained. It gives you the ability to prove yourself to your shard and enables you to gain "epeen" but sadly it seems that TRION are more focused on PvE.
We rolled on a PvP server to get open world PvP but that has never come to fruition. With one or two fights against BFG which was just curb stomping and then a few fights against TAINTED which was a little more fun there has been nothing else in this game that can keep us entertained.
So this is VoTF signing off. Good luck to everyone who continues to play and I hope that you base your enjoyment of a game on something other than PvP/ORVR.
