Do you think rift is good enough to pull people away from FFXIV long term if FFXIV players try rift while the FFXIV servers are down?
Depends, IMO, on whether or not they are willing to wait for all the updates. In the short term, I might have to say yes, however, even though I am lvl 16 in RIFT, I still miss FFXIV. I know, it lacks content and direction atm, but I am confident that it will turn around. RIFT is very shiny out of the box, never boring, no actual "grind" per se, a lot of quests and public parties...
I have never played WOW or FFXI, so I cannot compare either game to their respective legacies, however, I am getting into RIFT, and must say that it is cool.
Just starting the crafting phase also, much much different than that of FFXIV. Also, the classes are seperate.
Again, I am not promoting rift, many things that I would fix (like let me use my controller!!!!) and gil is slow to get, at least that is what it seems to me.
So, back on topic, I think that RIFT will pull some away long term, as for me, it will cause me to enjoy both games for what they are worth. I will come back to FFXIV when it comes back up, but I am not going to let go of rift.
