Hands down, this is the worst MMO I have ever played. The controls and combat system are completely unintuitive. The graphics are so-so and the lag is horrendous. If I want an MMO, I guess I'll go back to WoW. It also took me an entire day to update at an amazing 32 Kbytes/second.
I have no choice but to use the keyboard or a gamepad? Goodbye N52 Speedpad that worked so beautifully in STO, WoW, LOTRO, and AOC. Oh, and errors are in Japanese. That's helpful.
I really regret buying this game. Going to cancel my account now and add it to the pile of epic failure and some day in the future I'll have a bonfire to celebrate.
I'm sure I'll get flamed for this, but I don't care. I don't intend to check back here. I just want to vent and let others know how horrible this game is and if I can prevent one of you from buying it, then I've made the world a better place.
In FFXI, everything was great except for the pain in the *** leveling past 60. In FFXIV it seems like they're trying way too hard to be different. The status quo works for a reason; you don't have to reinvent the wheel.
