Basically it breaks down to this. Everything in the current release of the PC version of FFXIV is for the console (PS3)version. It's obvious and doesn't work well at all. Think about it. A game that doesn't use a mouse? The combat system? The clunky UI? Everyone knows the game was pushed out too quickly. WAY TOO QUICKLY. I can see why some people are this upset. But honestly you think that SE doesnt have some idea what there doing? The problems with the game at this point are atrocious. BUT. they pushed the game fast.
What will happen within the next week or two is there will be a mega patch. Making the game 100x better differentiating the game from the ps3 version. The chat is a perfect example. Chat isnt hard to mess up. But WHY would they do the 2 sentence chat. The no right clicking to /tell people or invite. the hard grouping? It's the console version! In other words 90% of these QQs are about things that obviously are meant for the console will be resolved. Obviously they went too fast and didn't release most of the computer version. They will not let that stand for long, (they know about it too trust me) with server pops going down and people starting to pay monthly soon.
( I worked as a Dev on a big MMO project and this is the only reason I can see for this happening. Cant say I have experience with MMO - cross platforms but it makes sense. )
My 2 cents. And it makes the MOST sense doesn't it? So I ask all you ragers, quitters and QQer's to stop playing until the next big patch. Then come back to this thread and say. Hey you were right!
