It's Final Fantasy, and there is no Blitz Ball, what could possibly go wrong:P?
...I liked blitzball *sad face*
Me too. Jecht shot ftw.
As for the game. The only reason I'd buy it is to reserve my character names, though since I can do that from open beta, there's no reason to buy it. However, most likely there's going to be some restriction on this, so I may be forced to buy it. (Yeah, I'm that picky. Would've done the same with SC2 if it hadn't removed the identifier thing.)
The beta experience has been nothing but garbage for me. Ridiculous system requirements, bad game engine choices, servers located in Japan, and just generally bad game design choices. All can
be improved over time (except server location), but seeing the progress that's been made, it'll take months instead of weeks, if anything is even changed at all.
Surplus exp is one of the least things that bothers me right now. Edit
: Just to get it out there, I started playing FFXI in December 2003. I quit sometime in 2005.
