I've heard good things from WoW friends and GMs about Zam versus the Curse Network which is a scam and puts keyloggers in their ads.
My IP address was banned from FFXIVCore.com because I put a negative review of the Open Beta in the REVIEWS section of the site.
I'm considering buying the game down the road but I want to see honest discussions bout it first, not fanboy fawning. I want to know what problems it has after OB and then decide for myself if I can live with those problems. However, if any negative comments get deleted, then that's obviously not going to happen.
So far it seems much fairer than FFXIVCore to me, but I haven't been here long.
