Well for my 2 pence worth, I was there before F2P and I'm still there now lol.
It doesnt seem like it made a whole lot of difference in either the way the game plays or the quality of players in there when it went F2P
Rift is still a great game with a huge fanbase and 99% of the people you meet are pretty nice folk. (myself included)
I'm an English guy playing in the shatterbone>wolfsbane server in the US and there's normally plenty of people about even with the time zone issue
Would I recommend it? "HELL YEAH" although i would still recommend getting patron status (monthly subscription) as it does help
Any questions? Feel free to ask
