Sooo, i got my CE from FFXIV like a day afther release, was on beta etc etc etc, i heard a lot of complains from a lot of people during beta about the game, and guess who did most of these? i guess ex WoW players or wannabe's maybe, just a wild guess but i would bet on this.
Well, i won't make this long "This is not or even close to (maybe 1 or 2 out of 10000000 things) WoW, i personally don't wan't it to be like it, i played WoW for i dunno, 5 years maybe?, and FFXI for like 5 also, anyway, i liked and still like both games, they are different like pepsi and mountain dew, they are both sodas, you drink them like that but totally different, now let's bring FFXIV into the equation, i guess it's more like if FFXI is pepsi then FFXIV will be coke, almost like it but still different, so i won't think of coke as a pepsi and a pepsi as a dew right? (don't take me wrong, some people understand better this way ;;, no offense) well back to the games and the people who like or don't like and only write bad things about it.
First of all like i said before, FFXIV is not WoW or FFXI or Aion or Eve online or i dunno can't remember many more atm, therefore for the people who say the game doesn't have enough quests, guess what? this is not WoW, 50000 or so synths to cap a craft? no WoW? or FFXI? heck even Eve online takes time, too long to master a craft?, took me 2.5 years on FFXI to get smithing to 89 fishing to 50 in 4? i dunno, well anyway, this is FFXIV may be similar to other mmorpgs but it's not, a lala is not a taru, just like a taru isn't a gnome etc etc etc, if anyone likes the game go ahead and try to understand it and enjoy it, don't expect a japanese game to have the same ideology as an american or korean or island or maybe brazilian dancing samba? nooo it's a new game, with it's horrors and goodies, a new game i want to last long because i've been waiting for it for like a year, because Eve and WoW and guild wars and FFXI and civilization and Bio shock and heck even playing super smash brawl with my son got old, therefore i'll try to get into this game as a new thing, something i've never played before and if it's hard it's good if it's easy it's good, at the end if i like it i'll play it.
