    Bit of a necro, but Trion announced today that Rift will be having progression servers called “Rift Prime”. These servers will see players start fresh and will feature both a subscription revenue model and progression advancement through the game’s expansions and content. There will be no lockboxes, a “significantly reduced store” and more current store items available through game play.

    - Prime servers will progress through content at a more rapid pace than that of the original launch
    - "dynamically matching characters to their current zone's level"
    - "dungeons dropping loot specific to your character's true level"
    - profession caps available to a single character
    - participation awards that are unlocked across your account, even to characters on other servers

    Was waiting to see which MMO would do season servers first, ala diablo 3 style. While they don't mention a reset, hard to see why they won't do that if it's successful.

    Sounds more like they intend to go through Launch > Storm Legion > Nightmare Tide > Starfall Prophecy release schedule at an accelerated pace compared to originally done and not so much the D3 season approach. So, really, it's just the "classic server" idea with a bit of a twist. I can't see it doing well, myself. Plus I'm not sure if they intend to literally run with the old patch versions or what's present just scaled down, because the latter would mean certain builds used back in the day literally wouldn't exist now.

    It says that the server will eventually end and that there's rewards and milestones throughout which sounds exactly like seasonal ladders to me

    Rift Prime servers will be launching on March 7th. The servers will start out as vanilla lvl 50, and will progress through the content. Then the servers will end. You will then be able to transfer your characters over to the retail version.
