I received several emails and DM's on Discord asking me what I think about Rift's upcoming 'Prime' server. The "Rift Prime" server will be a subscription only server where content from the past seven years is released periodically to the players. It's essentially the EQ progression server model.
My thoughts? Obviously I'm a huge proponent of the subscription model. There's no doubt in my mind that it is the superior model in every way. Subscriptions make for better games.
