Rift MMO

i'm gonna try a mage type toon. i hear they have really slow casting speed though. there some kind of warrior caster hybrid soul but i tend to regret rolling mdps in mmo's and it's one intersting soul in an archetype filled with stuff i don't want to do.

but yeah i was getting 471kbps from teh launcher yesterday. and the whole logging in to patch thing is always annoying imho, just because i like to patch up the game and then pay for game time. it's actually one of the factors holding me back from resubbing to STO right now.

Ask about the log in thing on the forums, the devs are actually really responsive to the community - and if others feel the way you do i imagine they would change it (unless they are planning on it anyway).

yeah i might register on their forums at some point. i've been discussing the game for a few weeks on an aion fansite that made a special subforum for it. unfortunately half the people there think the game is perfect as is and should be launched tomorrow.

There is a beta event from the 25th to the 28th if anyone wants to try it. Look on their Facebook page in the comments for a VIP key that works. It took about 10 minutes to get a beta invitation e-mail.

(You can find it yourself easily. I do not wish to spam for them. :D)

How many more beta phases there will be, until the release (which I see is in March)?

I got into this one too, but I have yet to dl it. The short beta's confuse me. Why not just have a nice long one?

I was getting 3MB/s on the patcher. I've never had that fast of a download.

I believe there are two more after this. I recall seeing a calendar numerous times on the forums which i'll try to dig up.

I'm excited for the beta tomorrow!

The great thing is that you don't need to choose a class based on their name, as the souls deviate from the connotation the names usually hold - like the fact that rogues can tank and play support.

i'll be playing a limited amount of time this beta to specifically test how combat feels with the animations the game has. i think this is my biggest area of concern with the game because combat animations have a huge effect on combat and gameplay in that without good ones you are basically stuck staring at the UI to know what is actually happening in the game, and the videos i've watched of rift combat so far have basically been the player waving his arms at something until it dies.

Am I too early to the party, or they have some difficulties/delays? Announcement says that the party starting at 18:00 GMT.

It's now 18:14, and I can't get in: http://img258.imageshack.us/img258/5233/rift.png

Mine says the same thing. I thought 10:00am PST was 1:00pm EST (which is where I am) unless they are having problems.

Stops at 49% and tells me it can't connect. I'm pretty sure it should be running seeing as it is 11:30am Pacific.

i got my key but no beta invite :(

They are sending out invitations all the time, keep a look out! Also, check your "manage games" page on the game website, it's usually posted on there before they send you an email.
