Sure, the game in its week of prelaunch feels like we just payed a bunch of money to play an unpolished beta version of FFXIV. Alot of people have been complaining about SE releasing an unfinished game and are upset about spending their money on what, in their opinions, is a game that is still in the beta stages. The way i see it, whether the game is 100% finished NOW or 100% finish in a year from now, either way i would be spending money to buy the game, so what difference does it make WHEN i purchase my copy of it.

Yeah, there is still a bunch of stuff that needs to be fixed, but there are only two options: 1) play it NOW and be happy for what we have got so far, or 2) SE coulda waited another year to released a better more polished product.

PERSONALLY i would much rather be playing in an unpolished version of the game NOW rather than be sitting there staring at a launch date of Oct. 1st 2011 for the next year.

Im sure peoples biggest problem with looking at it this way is gonna be "yeah but im paying x amount of dollars to play a beta each month!" if 15ish dollars a month is gonna make or break your bankroll maybe you shouldn't be wasting your money buying video games period!

It's not about 15 dollars a month breaking someones bank roll, it's about having base expectations. Leave the red herrings at the door. Personally, I'll continue to play only for the reason that I have faith things will be fixed, and I want that much of a head start by the time the game does become popular.
