There are some things I disagree with however. The fact that you can purchase holiday event items with real money at any time of the year, Items such as mounts or companion pets which a lot of us spent many hours grinding and doing daily quests to earn. Also it makes them a hell of a lot more special when they aren't an all year round thing you can just purchase off the Rift store.
Its sad to see that a game like Rift had to go f2p, Almost everyone playing the game now who did not want to pay for the subscription are loving it and saying its the best MMO. I think if people realised this earlier the game would still be p2p, but hell who's complaining. The servers are full and there are world events everywhere. No longer is it hard to find a group for anything. They have already had to open a few more servers to deal with the enormous queue times with new players and old returning players trying to get back onto the game.
If you have not played Rift yet, we suggest you give it a go, Why not? its free.
