    A spot to gather info, spread rumors :P and general info

    As everybody is probably aware, SFP has been officially announced!
    It is buy to play - the different editions are here

    Obviously, there is a lot of discussion about this change of policy. At least they are listening to some thing people have to say, as posted by Ocho on 8/8/2016:

    • The option to purchase Earring Slots and Planewalker: Water for Voidstones has returned. Both can be purchased for 50,000 Voidstones each.
    • The time limit to purchase the RIFT: Essentials Edition has been removed. It can be found in the RIFT Store under the DLC category.

    Nothing changed.. expansion has Always been a purchase.
    earing slots are considerd old content now so its a pretty logic step for them to make it acceseble

    I think ppl confuse content like Planes of water, PTW, as an "expansion" also but free! :O
    Its just new content they release on a regular basis like they have Always done.
    Its one of the reasons also why i started playing rift :P

    Last expansion was Storm Legion incase ppl wonder

    What Trion is doing is quite interesting now.

    They changed from a subscription model to f2p and now to b2p.
    Question remains who is gonna play the game, since all f2p players are locked out from endgame then or is it possible to buy the expansion with REX?

    I guess the remaining players would rather see a subscription model again.

    Probably would be possible to buy the expansion with REX, however, the last time I played the price of REX was higher than what a F2P player can hold, so... We'll live to see.

    As it looks you cant buy the expansion with REX atm, maybe after a few weeks or months into the expansion. By that time all f2p gamers are gone. According to Trion only 15% of the players invested money into the game since it went f2p. That means at best only 15% are willing to buy the expansion.
    I wonder how many will do it, since unlike GW2 with their b2p model, in Rift you still have to invest in Patron and Cash Shop which are essential for not having a complete grind of a game.

    What I have seen so far is that quite many player has bought the expansion allready and numbers are going up all the time.
    And quite many people has that mount from deluxe edition too.

    True is that you can not buy the expansion by rex but it's giftable item so players can buy it with plat from other players.
    It's good that there is some criticism about things but usually it comes from people who are no longer playing the game.


    And YES I did buy the Deluxe edition but that is because I did wan't it and I'm willing to pay my hobbies what ever they are.

    Some info from last night's stream about fortress sieges:

    They take place in an area in Xarth Mire, the zone previewed last night.
    The consist of 3 rings, the first and outer ring like open world bosses, can be handled by everybody.
    The second ring has a difficulty like 5 man (expert) content, still open world I think.
    The third ring is instanced for 10 player groups if I picked that up correctly.

    No info on rewards was given, that will come in a later stream.

    Sounds certainly interesting, so far I like the concept.
