I honestly can't imagine what they could possibly add in that time frame to make me stay - things like housing + lots of housing items, appearance slots + lots of appearance options, and revamping the execrable Auction House don't seem like one- or two-month projects

Interestingly, I mentioned every single one of those items on my 'why I am quitting' survey.

Hey, at least they care enough to offer the exit survey.  I canceled accounts on both the EQ2 and EQ2Live servers a couple months ago and SOE couldn't even be arsed to ask why.  Maybe they are still peeved from when I told them EXACTLY why when I canceled SWG!  why so serious?

Yes, I know I'm paranoid, but am I paranoid enough?

Update on my status - I've opted to not play past the free month. There's a lot to like about Rift, but ultimately the game isn't for me.

I subbed for 3 months.  I'll probably keep playing at least until TOR comes out, at which time I will probably cancel.

I know several people in my guild who figured out that this type of game just isn't for them anymore.  Couldn't name a single wrong thing about it, didn't have any of the problems they did in other games, they got the pinacle of the diku experience and it simply wasn't enough anymore.

This is a good way of summing it up. I just don't feel like starting the grind over again. Going back to WoW isn't really what I want either. I'm waiting for "something else" - whatever that is.

Yep, exactly how I feel.  SWKOTROIO or whatever it's called I will buy just to see what they can do with the conversation wheel in a group setting.  I'm putting my money on GW2 right now, as I'm having fun casually strolling through GW1 right now.  It's great for short bursts.

Well stated. 

I think GW2 may be my last hope for the genre unless someone can manage a more sandbox-pvp-pseudo-EvE approach to a fantasy diku.  In the meantime I'll stay with Rift until I have a 50 of each tree (which shouldn't be much longer).

Personally i'm hoping for an mmo with mount and blade style combat, maybe Tera.

I renewed for one more month. There's enough to keep me entertained for at least that.

I think I got rft for free. Untintentionally of course, I went to renew my sub for one month so I went to do that. Not wanting to accidentally get charged I immediately upon renewing my sub with payment info canceled the sub. I've done this before in other games no problem and seemingly there was no problem now.  I was able to log in last night where previously I could not, play and have fun. This morning however I noticed no charges on my card, none pending either.

I cancelled my account and deleted my payment info yesterday. My remaining playtime was extended to a month for free.

I just cancelled too. Finding the need to mow through 1000 mobs to get from point A to B (quest and turn in? getting to a rift/invasion?) and back to A getting old, while waiting for a hearth that's on 1 hour cooldown.
 
Gets particularly aggravating when you are looking for an elusive item/npc, searches the net but can't find any info (not really rift's fault, being so new, but still it's something you are so used to when playing established mmos like wow), and have to carve a bloodpath through a legion of mobs to search the entire area.

No exit survey on cancellation. Could be because I am still running on the free month.

Renewed, paying, still having lots of fun. Might be thanks to my guild of friends, as usual, or the fact that I haven't played World of Warcraft since 2005.
