I know most of you don't care about my opinions but i thought ide share a few with the community after three solid days of gameplay.
First up is performance issues, i know it's still beta but even on my alienware the game stutters and wheezes like my chain smoking grandfather, as for lag well lets not go down that road i think SE need to take a huge look at their netcode before retail or at least implement NA and EU servers in this day and age forcing everybody onto a japanese server is just not good enough.
Classes, is it me or are there far too many crafting classes? target acquisition is horrible even with macros and is pretty much useless when your attacked by more than one mob, add in lag and its game over, the Conjurer just like the WHM in XI feels grossly underpowered and useless, and if your gonna make a tank class at least give the poor guy a shield to play with from the beginning, melee classes feel cheap imo hack slash maim and it's over (if you can lock on quick enough) just spam the attack button (not a lot of skill there) whilst the poor old dress wearers suffer from some kind of attention deficit disorder.
Music, ugh it's horrible, it's repetitive and duller than yesterdays dishwater, now i know a few of you will like it thats a taken but i urge you to go back and listen to the soundtrack that ran alongside XI......see what i mean!
Crafting, like XI far to much work for far too little a reward...nuff said.
Quests, well i actually quite liked the new system and hopefully when the community finally get it together some of the big levequests will be fun to attempt, can't fault it really.
These are just a few of my ops i'm not hating on the game i will be buying the retail and getting stuck in like everyone else, i just hope that a few of these issues are addressed before retail, as for now i'm gonna quit and sit it out and watch from the sidelines as hopefully things are fixed up before Sept 30th.
