Well well well, what a surprise. Blizz has already started ripping off Rift. We knew it was only a matter of time (since they rip off everything anyways) but I really thought it would take them a bit longer to start ripping them off. And I really didn’t think it would be so… obvious.
I was running through some Black Morass in the Caverns of Time and lookie lookie what I came across:
That’s right, a big floating portal thingy in the sky. Surely, this big floating portal thingy is just part of the scenery. Surely, it couldn’t be an entryway for some evil creature to come out and start attacking our world. Surely, I won’t have to…
Okay, fine Blizz. I’ll play along with whatever you have to offer here. I killed their stupid bird creature and then of course, just like in the massively more successful game, Rift, this portal instantly closes once I’m done killing the creatures pouring out of it. Off to the next one!
To make matters worse, the smug assholes at Blizzard don’t even try to hide the fact that they’re ripping off Rift:
And look at this asshole, too.
I don’t know who he is but I don’t like him. I’m sure he’s ripping off something. Just because I don’t know what it is, doesn’t mean that he’s not doing it.
We’re all on to your game, Blizz. Maybe next time you design an instance you should try to come up with some ideas instead of just blatantly ripping off other people. If you’d open your eyes you’d see that there’s a reason nobody ever runs Black Morass.
