Last week, Rift took a step closer to becoming pay-to-win by allowing players to purchase Collected Intel from the in-game store.
Players did not react to kindly to this, far from it, so today, Rift realized the error of their way and went back on their decision, removing Collected Intel from the game’s store. They’ll now be taking the time to review “ALL” the player feedback. They’ll be making a final decision about the future of Collected Intel availability later this week. So there’s a chance that it might return to the in-game store, but considering the backlash, that seems quite unlikely.
You can read more about the decision in the forum post.
