I knew the game was going to get a lot of hate. a lot of people from the west *want* ffxiv to fail. In the end, i think the game will thrive with the people that really enjoy it, much as FFXI has done up till now.
I am loving FFXIV.
do I hate the retainer system? yes.
Does the lag bother me? Yes.
Does it mean I hate the game? Absolutely not. I am loving every minute of it. I've done nothing but play and the fun I've had is amazing. On the other hand, I am also hoping that SE does something about the retainer system. It would help a lot with my crafting.
I love the fact that i can solo or party, whichever I choose. I love the people I've met so far. I love the graphics, the music, the storyline. The world.
I really feel sorry for those who wanted to like this game, but don't. I felt the same way with FF12, but i still hate it to this day.
But I am loving FFXIV.
