I might take a look again in June, especially if Storm Legion (which I never played) is part of the f2p experience. I liked Rift for a while, just not enough to keep on subbing.

Apparently everything is available in the f2p version and nothing will be removed from the game including inventory and character slots for anyone who has ever subscribed which is a bonus!

I think the sub ended up causing a number of players to give up playing.

Rift is worth revisiting if it becomes free to play, and none of that crap restrictions like the SWTOR f2p model.

maybe, but also because I am sure these guys have just made another game and that model is totally F2P ... so they are making RIFT F2P coz the business model makes more sense that if they can do it for one, they can do it for the other... paraphrasing off some article I read.

Do any Toggers play Rift? I used to play quite a while ago and liked the game just could never find a good group of people to play the game with. I enjoyed the pvp actually. I am by no means a skilled pvper but it was fun and reasonably well balanced.

For any fellow Aussie (or Melbourne) Toggers... I just picked up a copy of Rift Storm Legion for only $9 in EBgames today. Was going to give it a go once it went F2P, so it was good timing.

Its a good game, and f2p means you would be silly not to at least check it out.

Alot of similarities with wow as you would expect (from any newish mmo) but there is more than enough to distinguish it.

Laethys is the "Oceanic" shard, and its pretty well populated most of the time. Imagine it will be pretty packed when f2p first starts up.

Rift PvP is fairly well balanced and player population is good, queues for warfronts pop in a few minutes (im on Laethys. +10 GMT). Conquest generally has 3x full raids, during US prime time it fills completely with 120 players. You will find most players are grinding their way to Rank 80 since the xpac so i'm not to sure about lower level PvP.

Having said that i looked around the lower level and starting areas of Rift these last few days and the influx of players has already started.

Rift was worth the sub for mine, so its even better now as F2P.
