PostSubject: So how many are planning to play Rift?   Mon Feb 21, 2011 7:54 pm

As the title asks, and what side do you plan to play on!? Am just wondering who will be playing. I still don't know if I will be playing it, but we'll see.

I was, well still am very interested in returning to FFXI on a new account and join that rather large group of new players from MMORPG that started up on Titan recently and see how it goes, check out the changes and stuff before I'd reactivate my main account. Was only $5 on Steam so why not, cheaper than reactivating my main. Only problem though, I can't get POL to work on my PC. Its really odd, dunno why, always has before, but this time its being said its an incompatible application, but it works fine on my other PC. Planning to contact SE tomorrow and see if they know why this is, here is the original thread over on MMORPG with more info as to my situation...


If I can't get XI to work, there is always the option to play it on my other PC, or just get Rift an play that instead, decisions~decisions...

Yea I preordered this awhile ago.
So I'm going to play for at least a month.

Looks like the group I plan playing with is rolling Defiant on a PvE server.

Already pre-ordered. I'm still in there air about Guardian or Defiant... the elf +10 wisdom buff is right up my cleric-lovin' alley... so I'm sorta leaning that way.

I may try out rift but not any time soon. Our last game we tried at launch didn't go so well. I will give it a few months before I pick it up.

As for XI I just don't have the time to indulge right now. But if you do get situated on Titan I will make a toon one day and jump on every now and then.

Well, I dunno if I'd stay on Titan yet, its just an option to see if I'd consider my main account someday. Just wanna see the changes and if this crowd of mostly new players is as large as it sounds.

BTW, hiya Soten, havn't heard from ya in awhile!

I'm not sure if I'll be playing Rift.

But if you guys are going to reroll characters in FFXI, I'd be totally open to doing that.

Doesn't look like I'll be playing XI after all, since for some reason PlayOnline doesn't want to work on my 64-bit system anymore, yet it did all last year when we played last.

Gonna look over my budget, and other games coming out soon and decide if I should bother getting into another MMO, or Rift for that matter. I'll do that tonight sometime...


BTW here is the US launch server list: {if I decided to play, I'd prolly pick Faeblight {RP} as thats where I was during beta and the community was quite good, and helpful in world chat, nor did I see anyone get irate and fight.}

  • Belmont PvE
  • Briarcliff PvP
  • Byriel PvE
  • Deepstrike PvP
  • Faeblight RP
  • Gnarlwood PvE
  • Greybriar PvE
  • Keenblade PvE
  • Lotham PvP
  • Reclaimer PvP
  • Seastone PvP
  • Shadefallen RP
  • Shatterbone PvE
  • Snarebrush PvP
  • Spitescar PvP
  • Sunrest PVP-RP
  • Wolfsbane PvE

I'm gonna suggest Sunrest, as someone threw out that RPers tend to be a bit more level headed and id like to do some Guardian smashing on their own turf. Depends on the lowbie gank rate though i suppose.

Played on both Sunrest and Faeblight. I agree with Khalus that the population on Faeblight, on the whole, was pretty good. Same could be said for Sunrest.

I gotta say though... there is something to that adrenaline rush that comes from playing on a PvP server like Sunrest. As I was running around chasing rifts I didn't get ganked. I got into a few scuffles, but never got killed by some high level... I did get wtfpwnt by a raid of like 30 Guardians as me and like 5 others were closing a rift... but that's part o' da game! RP servers tend to keep the maturity level higher, so the ganker/griefer population should be low.

Faeblight or Sunrest... I still prefer Guardians. Celas... back me up here bro! Onigiri Smiley

don't think the problem is because of the "64-bit" thing... i use a 64-bit system and i can log on POL up to the game login, where i couldn't go any further...

khal would never play the white side.... he's all into the dark side lol.... even tho i don't think defiant is evil at all...

The side doesn't really matter, cause everyone is really evil at heart when given the chance anyway. Its more the races to me, and honestly I enjoy the human options on both sides more.

Gonna try Dragon Age II tomorrow then Radiant Historia whenever is appears on torrents and let those kinda determine if I end up playing many of the other games listed in my other thread, well most I'm sure I'll still play, when though is the question...

Doesn't Rift like launch tomorrow though, 24th for head start? Also are you all planning to play together and form a guild, or just go you separate ways? And lastly, I highly doubt I could commit to playing on a PvP server, I dunno if I could get into it, or the thought of trying to read text for a quest or achievement or whatever and have someone gank me for no reason...that drives me nuts!

I'm pretty definitely going PvP, I tried guardian and just cant do the questing for em, all the "find a shrine and pray at it" quests drove me nuts. I'll be on tomorrow after work if anyone wants to hit me up. I'll be under Gath. I'd love to get the guild going on there, but it seems like the shell is pretty split on the server option.

Gath, I may just join yas tomorrow night if yer still on when I get online. If I get ganked like crazy I'll just drop into Faeblight instead... but I'm hoping that is not going to be a huge issue on Sunrest.

Now to see how long these packed servers will last, and well I'd imagine it'll get worse on Tues. Oh, are there lvl 50 players yet...?

Its just been reported there are lvl 50s on the Sunrest server...and that was some 12hrs ago. So in less than 60hrs, plus it hasn't been officially launched yet. I can see it now, after the 30 free days are over the masses will leave in droves once again.
