While I don't believe you are correct on every single game to claim is dead i Would like to see you take a look at Guild Wars 2 in a year or so when their new content stops.

Veikko Lamminpää says:

Rift :´| I loved it to death when it came out. The amount of adventuring it had into it, I loved collecting all the stuff, finding cool quests, shutting down rifts, the raids were great, the dungeons were fun. Goddangit 🙁

AmazingPaladin says:

I quit a couple months in along with half the people in my guild. We got a lot of world firsts but the game felt too generic. Not even going to mention the "iwin" macros you could make and spam.

ilikemcdonalds says:

You have been banned from the Rift forums.

Brekner Catalin says:

I played the "level 20" beta. It was fun but oh well, not that great to keep me from playing WoW.

Richard G says:

update – rift prime will be shut down permanently on 3/31/2019.

Forrest Gray says:

Dude, I remember right after launch I was headed back to town to turn in quests and THE WHOLE TOWN was taken over by hostile NPC's because an invasion had gone unanswered and a small army of players had to fight and regain control of the town. Never experienced anything like it in a game since. Only other MMO that structured itself to encourage player interaction was Warhammer Online, sacking a castle with an army of players was crazy.

Lancelot2000Lps says:

Rift was a very great game i played it the first year alot and than a half year long only a little because the blancing was a bit dubios!!! The problem with balancing was like i played at the time a class that was a mesh out of 2 healers and 1 dd and it was very op because you could heal good and you could dps and because of self heals and buffs you could be tanky, and i played most the time pvp or the rifts in pve but after winning and winning it is sad too say but it bored me!!!

Nolan Burkhart says:

I miss rift

SidTheJerkNSFW says:

plz look into LifeBlood, it has alot in common with Apex ledges that you might find interesting.

“You can buy stat granting gear in the irl currency shop”
“Gear must be earned”

Pride and accomplishment lmao

Ryan Karolak says:

Hey, I liked Defiance, lol. I am probably in the minority, and it had its flaws, but I found it fun.

DARK DRAKONIS says:

R.I.P. Rift… you were too good for your time !!!

Djuntas says:

The Riftstalker build in Rift was one, if not the best class/build Ive tried in any Game. The game was great at launch.
