I started FFXIV today and i hoped on a new game after 2 years stopping with the old FFXI that i played for 5 years.
And now i started FFXIV with first a dead slow update of over 16 hours :(
Than i had to register the game where i end up with a click to buy company what i totally don't want.
And after that came the character customization that is so outdated,so 90's with very limited possibility's,people are used to much better with the new mmo's that are around now with every character is unique to what every person wants to see in it.
After that comes to choose the server you want to go on,people of SE its in tease days normal that you have a little description with the server you go to and what national people like to go there.
After going to true those disappointment's i finally logged in,and yes there comes the good part the beginning looks great with the cut scenes just great especially the cold shower you get after that.
the map "Jike" where did they have that one from,out of FF2 or something?
The characters are looking OK in-game,movement is exactly as crappy as FFXI,you still cant jump swim fly or all the other things you couldn't do in FFXI.
Than there came my first mob,had to target it with my tab key "Shivers" and than as melee class i could attack it when i was close enough with my "1" key as pressing 1.....1.....1`.....1.....1.....1.....1 and the mob was dead,than unequipped weapon so you can wait till your hp is on 100% again and than to the next mob ................ **** cant find a mob ............. nope still no mob around,don't have some sort of scan or what ever,what can you expect with a map that is 20 years old so that was the end of my mob clubbing adventure so i thought lets go chop a tree.
You can guess it,chop ....................................... chop ......................................... chop..........omg...........chop,no wonder SE decided to make the leveling easier with this speed you need 20 years to get to max synthesising.
SE,before you brought this game out you said that you where building on this game fore 5 years where you only being busy with meetings and drinking sake and coffey?
SE was always great at building games that where outstanding,games that people had to play because the game play and battle system where way ahead for there time,and now you come with this,a copy of FFXI with some better graphics and a crappy movement system and crappy battle system.
This is in my eyes a game where lots of MMO players come in(that is what MMO'ers do,always looking for the perfect MMO)and most of them will be gone within a month,or going back to there normal MMO or to FFXI where people already have everything they want included all the possibility that are there.
And the graphics,well play a week FFXI and you don't know the difference.
is there anyway a way to get my €45 back that i invested in this game?^^
