Hi there. My name is Daniel. You might remember me from my years-long stint as the administrator of these boards, when I regularly banned fifteen people a week for crimes like having more numbers than letters in their user names. I'm here today to talk about MMORPGs, and I have a question to start things off: what's your favorite MMORPG? Take your time, I'll wait.
Really? I had a feeling you'd say that. What's the thing you like the most about it?
Yeah, that's a pretty good feature, man...or it would be if this was 2007. But this is 2013. We've lived longer than the Mayans thought. It's a brave new world, motherfucker. And you're playing obsolete garbage
See, there's a game out there called Rift. Everything your favorite MMORPG does, it does it better.
Dungeon design? Better.
World design? Better.
Class mechanics? Infinitely better.
Casual play? Better.
Hardcore poopsocking raids? Better.
Lack of pandas? Fucking better.
Crafting? Bett-well, GW2's crafting is probably better, but it's as good as crafting ever gets.
I could go on and on. Rift is to WoW what WoW was to Everquest: a refined and perfected version of its predecessors. If you're playing anything else, you're playing something that's second best.
I can hear some of you already. "B-but you have to p-p-pay a monthly fee and herp and derp and a bloo bloo bloo fdaiud0ufdjkay894y" Look man, you can play the first 20 levels right the fuck now with Rift Lite
. Twenty levels out of sixty for free ain't bad, bro.
And that won't even matter when the next major patch hits, because it's gonna go free to play
. Zero excuse. Trion is giving you this game, man.Read more about Rift at the offical website.
And then play it, because it is great...and you deserve greatness.
