    Post Are other people playing a different game to us ?

    Quoted from Gamespy.com review of rift

    "Yet Rift's overall performance is an astounding triumph. Only once did my server crash, and never once did I encounter an obvious bug. Considering that its main gimmick consists of amassing hundreds of players in one spot and having them batter enemies with spells and abilities from 36 different talent trees, Rift is a paragon of server stability. Elsewhere, detail reaches almost glorious levels, and high-altitude views are unfailingly rewarding. The result is a game that feels like an established MMO straight out the box"

    surely someones getting paid or there certainly arnt playing the same game as us ??

    Nope, I'm playing the same game they are. And I agree with Gamespy.

    I'm fairly certain Gamespy has a much better computer than me which makes all the difference heh.

    I'm also playing the same game. Probably not what the OP was going for when he started this thread.

    I'm confused. What do you disagree with in the quote?

    I've seen 3 bugs since I started in beta and their servers have been stable.
    If you want to get healed in warfronts, follow the Covenant of Healing:
    1. Stay near your team. Healing spells have a 35m range and you're not the only one who needs healing.
    2. Stay in sight.
    3. Protect your healers.
    4. Be respectful. Telling people they suck will not make them better players or want to help you more.

    Aside from a few minor hiccups, this is the smoothest MMORPG I've played on launch.

    Same game for me too. Working well. Also, since they aren't chasing so many bugs, they'll be able to work on content and performance improvements, which is great.

    For the most part, yes.

    That is, you are playing the same game as them for as long as you do not have any issues.

    Apparently, they completely forgot about customer support. After all, if it's taking them one week to send me an automated message and I haven't heard of them for over another week since I put in the GM support request for a bag that disappeared instead of being bound to my character.

    Oh yes, and the fact that either Trion or ATI messed up the graphics and I am having issues with 100% blackscreens with certain visual effects, put in a bug report, told them I'd love to hand them my DxDiag but since there's no option to attach any file in the bug report...

    So, yeah, I do believe they left customer support out to save cost. ;)

    (Also, if people now come with "that's just one case few and far between", then I ask you back "well, if there's really no issues, why is it taking them 3 weeks to get someone to reply to my inquiry?". Either no support, or, so many issues, the support isn't able to work up the queue.)

    Game works fine from this end
    Go forth and do, just blogging about it is the same as inaction.
