5 reasons why this game is weakFollow

I need to be real with myself and admit that they messed this game up. It's not that good at all.

1) No Auction house: Big mistake. It shouldnt be this hard to trade. Needed an AH from the jump.

2) WEAK questing system: Was expecting a lot of NPCs to tell cool stories and give tons quests similar to FFXI

3) Starting jobs are a joke: Crafting system is WACK. Weak classes with less than impressive special moves.

4) Battle system is WACKER and too glitchy.

5) Failed to draw me in. The lore is WEAK.

No need for anyone to get offended. These are my opinions. I wanted this game to be better than FFXI but it's not. No need for me to convince myself that FFXIV is better. SE has been working on this one for years. No excuses. They dropped the ball. I'll keep my eye on this one over time and I hope that it improves.

I am trying to figure out what is worse. . .

WEAK, WACK, or WACKER. . .

It's just what I think. Not trying to offend any fans of the series. No need to have a go at me.

Complaining is easy but explaining your opinion seems to be hard...

btw. FFXI had no AH at release so what?
there were only 6 jobs so even less then in FFXIV..

It's disturbing that that was an appropriate analogy.

Just pokin' fun at your choice of describing words. You didn't really explain your points, you sorta just said "it's bad". Most of it has been said before as well, and agreed upon by quite a few, so you didn't really bring anything new to the table. Your presentation was just a little... weak.

Actually, you pretty much allow people to 'have a go' at you when you make it public so no way to avoid it now.
#12Kimbaslice, Posted: Oct 01 2010 at 5:02 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) There really isnt a need to "explain" the 5 reasons I posted. A large amount of players know the deal. This game is not that good in it's current state. Enough said. Again, I'm not trying to **** anyone off. This is just what I think based on my experience with the game.

This is a joke but I would find it hilarious if anyone knew the reference. . .

Anyway, I keed. . .

No, there`s not. I by the way disagree with you. I think the game is great. But I respect your right to have an opinion, and don`t worry about people who pick on you because of your language. They mistakenly think using `proper` english makes them somehow better or smarter than you. Your general sense of morality shows me you`ve got more good sense than most of them.

Take care.

1) No Auction house: It's not hard to trade at all. it just requires a little effort.

2) WEAK questing system: Because you played the game long enough to find all the quests? Tell us about class quests please.

3) Starting jobs are a joke: Seriously?

4) Battle system is WACKER and too glitchy. wacker and glitchy ... smoke less pot dude.

5) Failed to draw me in. The lore is WEAK. The lore is only weak in your opinion. perhaps try reading everything,]and actually doing the quests. that may help you understand it all.

No need for anyone to get offended. These are my opinions. I wanted this game to be better than FFXI but it's not. No need for me to convince myself that FFXIV is better. SE has been working on this one for years. No excuses. They dropped the ball. I'll keep my eye on this one over time and I hope that it improves.

For the love of god will people stop using FFXI's release as justification for FFXIV release. FFXI was their FIRST attempt at an FFXI MMO, it was released in 2002. This is almost a decade later and you're trying to say "It's okay that they didn't learn anything in the past 8 years and that some features are actually worse than in FFXI".

have u ever stopped to consider that maybe they learned that not having an auction house at release of xi didnt ruin the game?

This game is not for everyone. I'm pretty sure they weren't trying to make a game to pull in millions of subscribers. They're going after a certain corner of the MMO population, and those players probably feel the game only needs a little tweaking.

Yeah, man. "People" today with their "claims" that require "evidence" to support their "seemingly-random" use of "quotation" marks. I "know" that I don't have to "tell" you just how "wack" that is!

Your name sounds allot like Kimbo Slice, therefore your argument is invalid. Good day, sir.

Maybe you should hop over to APB before the servers close down? (If they haven't already.)

Too bad it isn't an arcade game with a sign that says, "Insert 1 quarter to play, coming next June, is the game you want to play."

Sorry, this is just my sick sense of humor.

Nah, people just played the completely ruined game for 8 years. You guys should see what it would have been like with that extra couple months of AH. A few spoilers, Mithra RSE was a swimsuit, Chakra would have been called Hadouken, and players could set RMT suspects on fire.
