To start, quit crying. Please. (Btw if you're saying, "I haven't been moaning or whining." Then this is not directed at you.) Some of you are worse than forum trolls. You're spoiled by games that are already 100% developed. It's not even release week. It's pre-release week. Beta was to work out the HUGE bugs. Yes there are still some, get over it. SE has never left the FF: Online community in the dirt for too long. ****, they're still putting out content for FFXI. But a lot of you played FFXI the day it was released in the states. You got a full game and an expansion. They had all the same issues in Japan on release day of FFXI, that XIV is having now. You whine about the JP's getting a game and having time to learn the systems and level up, blah blah blah, and then SE thinks everyone is big enough to handle a release of an MMO and you cry about that.
Make up your minds. Vanilla WoW was also a garbage release. But they added things and fixed bugs. SE isn't going to watch all the players struggle for the next 6 months. They'll step in when they have found complete solutions to the problems. And they've been doing this for a while, so I'm pretty sure they can handle the issues that are being presented.
Stop worrying. If you don't want to play, don't. **** maybe it'll free up some server congestion. But don't whine about a game during pre-release week.
