What I really feel bad about is I actually roped a few former XI players into buying the CE.

Two of them already quit. Didn't even think playing out the whole free month was worth their time. I'm embarrassed really.

No, i am having a blast. Great Linkshells, tons of stuff to do, so much in fact i can hardly keep up. Amazing Story line i can't wait to see the next part of, adventurer companion NPC, Parley, Class specific quests, Class specific abilities earned through guildmarks, Faction leves, Battlewardens...

I don't really find the time to do it all.

~i need a 96h day~

PS: oh, darn! I forgot crafting and exploring.

Of what? Him actually enjoying the game? Problems aside, I too am having a lot of fun with XIV. I'm still optimistic things will get improved and look forward to when they happen. I am also in love with the crafting, which is really a surprise since i've never been one to get really into crafting. To each their own though, I can understand if this doesn't appeal to everyone at the stage its in and I can't really call you out on that.

*Edit: I guess unless you're in here to bash the game you get instantly rated down as I was minutes after posting* Go go karma bombing

Yeah, there's stuff to do. Too bad it's just so god **** torturous to do any of it.

I'm not going to say your in denial or whatever, but I truly don't understand. Why are you optimistic and "looking forward" even to things getting "improved" if you like it right now? I've never played a game, loved it, and then said to myself "Boy I sure can't wait until this gets better." Seriously, that makes absolutely no sense to me.

Because I don't pretend the game is absolutely 100% perfect. I know there are UI issues, lack of AH, unecessary menus. But in the long run, FOR ME I am still having fun playing. Yes I know there are people that that don't think the same way, such as the OP and others on here. What about that makes no sense? Find me a quote where I say "jeez guys, everything about this is so super perfect there is no room for improvement" then i'll retract saying I can't wait for improvements.

The writing's on the wall. The game is garbage, and the fans of SE and FF are abandoning it in disgust. The only ones remaining are those forcing smiles through their tears. Are they ever in for a shock when SE shuts the game down for good. It won't be long.

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.

Yes, people spend hundred or thousands of dollars upgrading their computer and shell out the extra money for the collecter's edition because they want the game to fail. Smiley: rolleyes

There are a lot of disappointed people in this thread, myself included. Having read through all of the posts, I can safely say not a single person here wants FFXIV to fail. In fact everyone here is so disappointed and upset by FFXIV because we had such high hopes for it. I do agree with you however that in the end I think this game will be a success, but it's going to take time. It's not there yet.

I don't necessarily want the game to fail. Ideally the first few months would see a nasty drop in subscribers, forcing SE to reach out more to their player base, spending more time and effort on fixing issues and streamlining the UI. It could then get a resurgence and come back as a much more polished and enthralling game, pulling in new waves of people with an actual ad campaign.

But I played FFXI for far too long to honestly believe that any of that is going to happen, other than a drop in subscribers.

I'm trying really hard to like the game, but so far no luck with that... probably it's me that I'm not a fan boy, I will give it a try for the rest of the trial, otherwise I'll just cancel my account and return maybe in 1 year or so to check if things have changed and better spend my time playing WoW or other MMO that makes more sense and doesn't feel like a BETA, SE will charge me money to play a BETA? I don't think so
