Leaderboard: Are you playing RIFT Prime?

On Wednesday, Trion Worlds opened up Vigil, the RIFT Prime server that offers a unique progression pace for subbers as well as an environment relatively free of cash shop annoyances. Like most studios that give alternative or progression servers a go, Trion is surely hoping to attract old school players as well as those feeling a bit of nostalgia or just sick of modern business model contrivances.

But did it work? I’ve seen a lot of buzz on Twitter, but buzz is buzz, not players. Did the new server get you back in Telara – are you playing RIFT Prime? To the pollmobile!

Might give it a try because it is one of the few mmos I never got around to, and I got this thing about wanting to know all mmo mechanics.
So that 30$ Prime access pack is what you need ? And it gives 2 months access or 1 month for two person ?
Urrgh there is scaling in Rift ? The worst thing that happened to mmos since f2p, now I am in serious doubt again..

I really like polls for some reason. Maybe it’s the interactivity, I have no idea. We need more polls! Just throw them in articles haha. Is it just me?

No I like them too, given that enough people vote to give the result meaning. On this site there are usually plenty of voters though.

I do wonder whether the voting system can be abused, because I’m pretty sure that every time I’m on a different wifi, it lets me vote again.

I’ve been playing Rift Prime and am having a great time!

I would only try it if Trion guaranteed that the server would continue indefinitely. Otherwise it feels too much like a paid-for season, and seasons are what made me stop playing Diablo 3.

They’ve been really cautious – they didn’t want to say it would stay indefinitely if it was a flop, but given the success they’ve said it will stay up permanently if the population is there.

I hopped in after staring at the BDO screen, realizing all I had to do that night was to grind. Now I fish in BDO while the game is minimized to the system tray and actively play Rift Prime.

I’m surprisingly enjoying myself and I’m looking forward to the Carnival of the Ascended next week! I’ve always loved those and like the idea of getting in on it from the beginning. I missed out on so much over the years, which was another deterrent to playing. (I love my fluff and it does something weird to my brain when I realize I miss a lot of stuff while I’m not playing!)

Would actually like to try but no. I don’t have a international credit card, and the ratios for BRL = USA currency are terrible. I pay 3x more anything i try to get from overseas.

I’ve invested too much into ESO to care for another game at this point.

Me too, but I’m using Rift as a way to pass time between ESO dungeon and BG queues. :)
