Good day

Hello all, first of,thanks for a great forum;lots of info here.
I been playing MMOS since Ultima online and WOW since Beta. I won't compare Wow and FF because I feel its not fair and it will be an insult to you all.


Installation:

went smoothly with no hiccups, the patch client needs lots of work but it managed to download it all at the 2hr mark. I know this can be fix with a patch soon. The configuration utility needs to be revamped heavily.

Account creation:

OMG, this is so frustrating and SE do not have an excuse for what should takes only minutes to make,took forever.

Method of pay:

Gamecards and Direct pay and even paypal. What's this Click and Buy? I wont give my CC to a company that I just know it existed when I was creating my account, no way. I do hope Square realize they should go the way other MMo'S. Paying should be simple and fast and should convey some sense of security. Right now i don't trust how they are handling payment.


Graphics:
Beautiful and amazing are just the words to describe the game. Simply amazing.


Gameplay handling:

Is it just me or the games feels like they are trying to shove the "you can play this game with a gamepad", I payed for a PC version and it doesn't feel like one, not too many options at our disposal. UI lag is an issue no matter what computer you have, No jump key? seriously, can you drop from a 2 feet ledge? NO, on this game you can't and its one of my gripes about this game feeling like a console port to PC.



Still im going to give this game the 30 days game play it gave me but i think the biggest flaw of this game lies on the paying system, not the game at all, all of the issues related to performance and game play can be fixed with patches and its normal on a new game to have all this little issues, Do anyone know if Square have a dedicated team for the PC version?. Thanks to all and please i will like you to comment even if you agree or not, with this I do hope someone on Square read on it so they can have feedback from the community.

Thanks all.

SE did with their Playonline system, people complained and demanded they do something else. They changed it lol. I had no problems setting up payment (even shared payment) since you don't even have to go with click and buy.

I give this launch a 9/10, taking away 1 point for some heavy server lag on Selbina and a few other servers. As far as launches go though, this one I would say was a huge success. They had issues in beta that they promised us would be dealt with and they were. The game is very playable and I'm enjoying myself. I'm a little curious to see what they're going to do in this 3 hour maintenance coming up shortly.

ZOMG NO JUMP! FFXIV IS TEH SUX!!!!1!1

Also account creation only took me minutes from start to being fully ready to play the game.....god knows how so many people are struggleing with this, short of people bashing keyboards with their faces and hoping for the best.

I do however agree with using a company 99% of the playerbase will never have heard off before wasnt the smartest move to make however theres other options if your really that against it and theres like a googillian threads about this topic already.

Click and Buy is the european PayPal. It's 100% exactly the same in any respect. It took me 5 minutes to setup my CC and be done.
