THIS IS BETA!!!!!!!
let me give you an example of a recent beta (which i am completely positive you know-it-alls will have to comment on): Starcraft 2 beta, just something to hopefully give an idea that beta is not release, you could not access ultra graphic settings for beta.
One more time, hopefully realize that beta is not release.
World of Warcraft is almost 7 years old... its an old game, so please stop comparing every MMO to it. If you havent realized yet, WoW expansions are exactly the same makeup as the patches (not going to go into it, but I am sure if you take the time to think about it, you will realize what i am talking about)... they did not even do new character models with the new cata expac... Werewolves = trolls, goblins = gnomes.. le sigh. Dunno why I decided to add this little WoW part to my post but I have played for the whole 7 years and I am soooooooo happy FF14 is finally coming out so I can stop playing WoW lol.
Final Fantasy 14 is simply amazing.. another thing I dont think people are understanding is that weapons change the class you are currently playing, meaning your main character can be every class. You do not have to make 15 toons to achieve one craft. Also, considering every craft and every gather gives you 1000+ experience points, I can completely understand why they are only allowing 15 hours of exp a week... I mean physical rank doesnt really matter in this game, class rank is the main objective... I am not 100% on what they are exactly limiting, but I think they are limiting physical exp not skill exp... so who cares, as long as I can still level my class, I dun care how limited my physical exp is.
Again this is BETA... this is not release, this is not what the game truly is... the BETA is amazing in and of itself so imagine how fluent and beautiful release will be and stop ******** about the game...
THIS IS BETA!!! not release... hopefully people can realize that this is not release lol... seriously tho, if you dont like the game, quit now please... this is not a game for little kids, its complicated and takes dedication... not every kid and their moms and their pets can play... if you want to be able to play with your mommy and pet pookie, WoW is definitely the game for you... they are even making the game more simple with cata LOL! i remember when Lucifron killed 40 man raids for months and Onyxia was impossible... but that was when WoW was hard.... sorry for the memory.
THIS IS BETA!!!
