First let me start by saying Hi, I'm a new member to the ZAM community and I seem to like this forums (and site) a lot. Now for the topic at hand, I have played lots of MMORPGs starting with EQ back in the good old days and fell in love with the genre. I have played SWG, CoH, WoW, Lotro, Aion, GW, EQII, AoC and many many more, I do have to admit that I tried to get into the FFXI but I only played the 30 days free trial because I couldn't find anyone in the newbie towns to grp with and honestly had no idea what I was doing.
Now my computer is not the latest and greatest the benchmark test gave me a 2300 =( but for some reason I'm getting 50~70 fps? =D so who knows, so far I picked a server with less pop and have not being a victim of the lag train but we'll see.
Anyways I don't wanna bore too many people but I do see a lot of hate on the forums from a few days released game, I'm not a FF hardcore gamer or fan but I do see a lot of great potential for this game besides all the bugs and the fact that there is NO Auction House! (soon to come I hope).
I did purchase a gamepad because I heard this game plays somewhat better with it (reduced ui lag anyone?)so yeah just wanted to say that so far I am having fun and I believe SE did a great job thinking outside the box on this one. Now I hope we get some new classes cause I want to be Summoner or BST!! free update I heard no expansion needed this time?
Thanks to those who take their time to read this...
