XIV is absolutely a welcomed upgrade from XI. Most MMOs are unplayable at launch and sometimes never get better. XIV launched with very few if any bugs and my only complaint is Lag. Which is to be expected. It hasn't even fully released yet.

Those who are asking is it bad why is it bad blah blah. If you are looking for a reason to not like it you will find one. But if you enjoyed XI and want more of that fun without the problems of XI then XIV is your MMO. It is beautiful, fun, intelligently made and well polished.

Play the game for yourself before you listen to ANYONE else. Ask a friend for their 30 day pass. I will gladly give mine out to someone who needs it when the 30th comes by.

Also, Besaid seems to be a good place for anyone just joining if you are looking for friendly english speaking individuals with a fair mix of NA/JP/EU players.

Those my 2 cents. If you don't like them well there are no refunds.

Your post inspired me. I am going to give it another try after work today. I hope I can find myself getting into this.

I have played a lot of MMOs this one released better than all the others I have played. As for the game itself. They put a lot of work making sure that it was not just some WoW clone which honestly in all my years of gaming WoW never really seemed all that great. If you really look at the mechanics of what they did with XIV. They set out on a mission to get rid of all the problems that were ever problems in XI and then make it a grand new experience for anyone to enjoy. The way they have set it up makes even the small tasks rewarding. This game isn't your run of the mill MMO trying to cash in on the MMO action rpg stuff that WoW started. It has stayed true to what an MMORPG is and to what they have done before but still made sure to improve on that so that past mistakes did not get repeated.

I was at the launch of several MMOs that if you could log in you were lucky and even then it was at the risk of losing everything you did almost every day for several months. They still charged you money for it too.

XIV captures the same beauty that XI started a long time ago and I am so glad to be apart of it.
