I played FFXIV for a few months after it came out, and despite being enthralled with the possibilities and potential the game had... I gave up in April. I played for as long as I could and defended what good I saw in the game to the best of my abilities but, ultimately, i was overwhelmed by its shortcomings and decided to take a break / quit. I have, however, checked in on this site from time to time to see what kinds of updates are in the works and to my understanding there have been some major updates recently. I'm curious to know, for those of you who have played this game since release or shortly thereafter, does it feel significantly more refined? I'm not looking for a list of changes, as I'm sure I can find them all with a little effort but I would like to know how the game feels.
Thank in advance,
