Rift is the hero child for subscription fanboys. I myself could never understand how they lasted this long. The game is super generic and even its claim to fame with its invasions has been passed by other games public quests.
The game was already double dipping with a Cash Store which is a big no no for me.
So will I play it, problery not, I got to level 30 I think and that was enough. I don't think the lure of housing will draw me in. Not when there are far superior 100% F2P games out there now like Neverwinter / Star Trek Online or B2P Guildwars 2.
