More new info about Rift Prime servers that are on the horizon
« on: January 27, 2018, 09:18:39 PM »
In case you haven't seen this interview with Archonix from Trion about the new Prime subscription server coming to Rift. Answers a few of my questions.  :D

I hope it bring some activity back to the game. I was hoping for a older version/build and characters that would last after the 1 year progression push. I lost a lot of interest with some of the details =(

so you can buy all that stuff but the server will be wiped (they said extended seasons) and nothing transfers over to the live server. That seems really odd to me.

There are rumors about it not being wiped at the end of it, but they have stated it is going to be a finite thing. They also stated that it won't transfer over to live past achievements or something along those lines.

If you sell mounts or other items that persists then it needs to carry over.

Yeah I was honestly a little excited but if the servers are not going to be around after a year or however long I am not interested.

This latest info plug has made me pretty darn sad. I guess I hoped they were following Blizz with the Vanilla server idea and I was ecstatic! There is nothing that I want to play more than vanilla ::erm chocolate:: Rift. The original SoulTree was perhaps my favorite execution of a skill tree system thus far.

This article posted today and seems to allude to the fact in the first response that they are second guessing the "server wipe" approach initially proposed.

Seems they didn’t answer the buy a mount and the server is wiped.

It sounds like they were originally going for a server like EQ2 had where it was a progression server "Race to Trakanon" - the goal being the first group to kill Trakanon (a raid boss) with Rewards for different accomplishments along the way. Once that goal was accomplished the server was shut down and characters transfered to the existing ones.  EQ1 does the same thing.

I saw AoC is also going with a TLE (Time Locked Event server) so it's getting to be a thing now.

Currently installed: WoW, ESO, Neverwinter, W101, P101, GW, GW2, DCUO, EQ2, SWTOR , LoTRO - Diablo3, Dragon Age 1, Torchlight 1 &2, KoAmalur, Sims 2&3 plus 100+ casual games ....
