RIFT gives a week of patron access to everyone

    
9

To celebrate the holidays — and promote its newest patch — RIFT is giving everyone patron access for seven days.

Patron access is RIFT’s subscription service that comes with several bonuses, not the least of which is the game’s new affinity system. Trion Worlds points out that all patron players who log in will rack up affinity points every day.

This promotion applies to anyone who logs in between Christmas and the 27th, which will then tag those accounts for the seven days of patron access.

Muspel Metadirective This in 2012 (basically GW2 PvP and what Legion will do soon). Tron did  PTS server test  saying “all players will compete with the same baseline stats with no benefit received from upgrading your armor or weapons. This potentially means more even matches where skill & coordination is the biggest factor in determining the victor.”
In the end they followed  players saying MMO PvP should all be about gear/grind not about skill/teamwork. I didn’t look back since then.

Metadirective What scaling are you talking about, specifically? They made some changes to how PvP gear worked when 3.0 came out.

Tempting, I really liked the world graphics and the PvP ideas back then. Any news on the PvP gear scaling they were talking about few years ago but didn’t have the courage to do?

Funnily enough I reinstalled Rift recently not that I had any serious intentions to play but well there is a free Trove class available for what turned out to be just a couple of mouse clicks so I thought why not.  I may take another poke at it again though and see if I can’t find a bit of fun while this is on offer.

I must’ve missed the email about it! I logged in today becasue I was doing a ‘tour’ of my installed MMOs in case of anything fun to claim for christmas, and noticed I had Patron on. Not bad.

For me, personally, since it’s TRION Worlds I’ll pass. They literally ripped me off last year so I won’t be forgiving them anytime soon. Sorry. Bah-Humbug! I know, but in my case they worked hard to earn my hatred. 

However, personal tastes aside, that’s generous of them to do for the people who actually play RIFT (no one I know anyways).
