If Rift and Guild Wars 2 had a baby, I would probably end up with my perfect MMO. Both games have features that I really love while also missing the mark in other areas. Together, however, it’d be great. I love Rift’s open world. Switching between continents gives you a loading screen, but other than that, you can ride from one end to the other without encountering any loading screens!

Their attacks on the community were unacceptable".
