The title says it all, but I will just restate it anyways


Rift is going f2p soon (June 12th to be exact I believe) and currently you can play the first 20 levels of it for free anyways, so any one planning on giving it a shot? Its supposed to be one of the best MMO's out there right now....

I used to play Rift last year, it's a top notch mmo plenty of events to keep you busy. Shame there was only one or two really busy servers though.

Also if you use the Raptr service and accumulate enough hours you can get a free copy of the base game, plus Storm Legion (the expansion) and 30 days game time. Which means, you'd be one of the "Patrons" off the bat, and get all the benefits that gives you aka more bag slots, more souls to use (the SL specific souls) etc etc. All you gotta do is run Raptr while you play Rift and I think do 15 hours or maybe 20 of playtime (not even play time, just running time really) and blamo there you go.

I did a free trial of this game a while back and i just did not see why so many people enjoyed the game. I think i am just MMOd out.

Even thought I only got the game with all the expansion plus 30 days free almost a month ago (from raptr), I miss the pre f2p speeds. Was downloading all the patches and the full game with max my download speed (100mbit), but now it's hell to even download a small patch: http://i.imgur.com/RtvmMSb.jpg

I don't envy those that need to download the full game :D

It is pretty standard MMO gameplay but the storyline is unique and I respect that part.

 

I'll be back in it soon, too many games atm.

Do I have to add Rift to the games I play to receive these rewards or can I select them once I accumulate enough time?

 

EDIT: Ok I'm now browsing through Raptr... this is awesome!

Is this still possible ? seems they only have mounts, pets and armor for rift now.

Well it's been like 3 weeks, so I don't know if Raptr is offering that anymore. It may have ended when Rift went F2P.

It's kind of weird since the reward is listed on the featured banner on the rewards page. but when you click it they only list the pets...

Yeah I looked through the rewards page as well, and apparently these are limited time offers and that one expired already. Hopefully in the future they give more.
