    I don't know what kind of monster rigs you guys are running... but my puter is no slouch and Rift runs gawdamn terrible on max settings. Maybe you aren't using shadows or AA or you are using the lowest settings.. or maybe you think 20-30fps is peachy keen... I don't think that frame rate is acceptable.

    Compared to every other MMO out there that I have tried, Rift runs the worst, besides maybe EQ2.

    WvWvW can have 100 players fighting at once (or more). I personally like having Dungeons be 5 man groups as it's far better for coordination etc... but I understand what you're saying. It is different doing PvP in a chaotic 3 server battle compared to PvE content with a large group. I think EQ had the best mega raids ever way back in the day. :nerd:

    Agreed - for the quality of the graphics on max settings, which are pretty lousy, Rift's engine is atrocious.

    Yeah dude, I have 3 90's in EQ2 and frankly I am done with it pretty much. Atleast until EQ Next or another good MMO comes out this year.

    Idk I didn't like it that much, the lack of raiding and not really GUILD vs GUILD and no guild houses and stuff doesn't make sense to me.

    yeah, Rift is ok in not overly populated areas, but it gets sluggish when it gets busy. still not as bad as some busy WvW in gw2 which runs terribly.

    Rift looks great imho and some of the art direction will often have me dropping jaws.

    Yeah just looking for a good mmo to play with my buds, lots of guild/group stuff, guild houses, raids (8-16 players), PvP (Open-World would be nice), etc.

    I wouldn't recommend rift for open world pvp simply because the most populated servers are no longer pvp ones. (like it was during the first year of release).
    At max level (60) the game has a pvp mode called conquest. It's basically a version of an entire zone that is already in the game without any enemy npcs where you're given a goal to capture points and be the one with control of the most when the map ends after a certain amount of kills.

    As for the raids, yes it has big raids

    Just keep in mind its a pve centered game. GW2 is the better pvp alternative it just doesnt offer any real pve endgame.

    I can't recall. I stopped playing it about a month after it was released. I was just asking if it had gone to F2P yet.

    TSW is bad, stay away if you're looking for a MMO.

    WoW for its insane amount of content, PVE to be specific. Vibrant lore. PVP is good too. Has subscription

    GW2 for its PVP and no subscription. Has PVE, but not as good. Okay lore

    Rift for its hardcore raids and dungeons. PVP is alright and lore is not that strong either. Has subscription.

    If you are looking for something long term and want to make sure you are investments are not gone wasted then definitely go GW2. It's new and is constantly evolving in to something great. It will last longer than WoW. Rift I am not so sure of. They are great, but don't have that many subs which is usually bad news.
