I know not much has changed since the open beta, however that is a review of the open beta making it invalid.

Why the **** do ppl slate the game at release or in the beta, it may not be the best MMO yet, however it still could be.

Its not a **** static console game it will adapt to what its needed to be as much as it can.

People that slate a MMO on release are either just...
1. retarded
2. want the game to fail (/looks at WoW fanboys)

Just because a mmo is new doesn't mean it should be left alone until it's 'polished'.

This goes for all of them - WoW got some pretty **** reviews on release as well. Do your homework.

I know it did but just posting this BETA review at release means you are just as bad as everyone crying about what the game is like now, JUST BE ******* PATIENT AND STOP Q.QING ABOUT THE GAME.

Yes its bad now we know from the 5 million posts about it WE DONT NEED TO HEAR THE SAME **** THINGS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

As a player base how will SE know what our concerns are if we don't address them?

The majority of the people here are offering constructive criticism which launches into a huge flame war with both sides accusing another of "WoW fanboyism" and "FF fanboyism".

To be perfectly honest, I find it all rather entertaining.

I don't see many posts about all the brand new features, content additions or userfriendly additions being added to the game from the beta phase.

If anything, the general vibe i get so far is that aside from a few bug fixes and the hardware mouse that beta is release.

Oh, unless you are subscribing to the "oh but the CE release isnt the real release!" in which case i will paraphrase an older post on the matter:

Quote:
All you people who say "stop being so critical, it's only the beta!" will shortly be saying "stop being so critical, it's only CE release" followed by "stop being so critical, it's only the release of the game, give it a few months" followed up with "stop being so critical, the game has only been out for 6 months, mmo's take a year or more to mature" and finishing up with "guys?"



And really, mmo reviews in general are about form and function. A reviewer cannot spend the weeks to months leveling, gearing and then running the full scope of the content of the game. Its just not practical time wise. If some reviewer gives the game a bad review, its generally not because of anything related to a beta or release style issue (ie, some bugs, lag, etc), its about the fundamentals of the game which rub them wrong.

Edit: and reading through that linked review, it's negative points are exactly that - fundamental game mechanics which are not present now, nor will they be changed / added for a few months (if ever).

If they wanted to bring issues to SE's attention they would use the feedback form on the support site, rather than basicly say in the public domain "This game is crap because theres no AH and nothing to do except level".

I have even seen people saying a few times that "this is SE's last chance" for certain things so they dont even want to give a NEW MMO a chance.

And on that note i'm tired and gotta be up early so i'm going to put the flames out from reading these forums then go to bed.

Reviewing a game on release will give you a good idea of how it will play now. People who would want to buy the game now would probably find it useful. No one bought FFXI thinking "Man, it'll be great 6 years from now when I can level sync and play my favorite jobs with my friends."

This is about as favorable a review as this game can get. I'm not sure how you're relating this to QQ. The differences between beta and release are not enough to warrant this article being edited with the exception of him saying 48 hour cooldown. Everything else stated remains true.

Unfortunately, what you voice here doesn't matter. Trust me, I was in alpha since March and most of the feedback left in the proper forums on the beta website wasn't noticed. I do agree with you though. If you don't let someone know they're ******** up then they'll assume you're satisfied and won't make any changes.

Its personal preference and all, but yes we need to educate WoW players that this is OUR game, these are Characters and not Toons. Time to beat that into them one at a time.

I find the review quite decent and close to my own opinion. Now SE give us an AH and improve some in-game control, keyboard shortcurts please :)
