Yes, people are still playing it, but after they added a couple new servers for the F2P launch they've finally gotten around to merging 3 servers into others' Kinda irks me because literally every time they merge servers I'm playing on one of them. The rest seem pretty active, but without knowing what the actual population caps are and what the text descriptions mean in terms of numbers I couldn't say just how active.

I still get nearly instant queues as a tank or healer. Couldn't tell you how long the wait is for support or DPS though.

The game is still pretty busy, but a lot of MMOs are (such as EQ2). People think that just because a game isn't WoW and only has a handful of servers, it must be "dead". I actually find that there is a lot more activity on the handful of servers than on many of the multitudes of WoW servers.

True that. I hate WoW servers. Pay 15 bucks just to server transfer. On Rift it's FREE. HOLY COSMOS. Got tired of WoW's cash making scheme. If people wanna waste their money on that crap then go ahead.

Rift is still alive and doing fairly well. I don't play myself because 5 man heroics are ridiculous and the whole Storm Legion 5 man dungeons just require too much strategy to complete. Let's just say they are 3x harder than first few months of Cata in 5 man heroics. Also warriors suck for the most part if they're not the 1 ranged spec they have or the 3~ tank specs they use. Melee sucks too much **** for me to care. My mage is amazingly fun and whatnot. Oh well.

Let me guess above poster; you can't melee Necrotic Throne? >_>;

I don't blame you - I mained a Warrior; I liked Tempest up until they decided 'LOLTEMPESTDOESN'TNEEDSELF-SUSTAIN' and took out Bio-electric Transfer (instead of nerfing it a little) and made the rotation a faceroll rotation. Couple that with my alternative being 'Learn Paragon' and Riftblade it got frustrating. Fast.

Especially on the boss before Necrotic Throne with his 90 degree cleave and pools of garbage at his back.

I've done melee against Necrotic Throne plenty of times.
