An apology and a goodbye to FFXIVFollow

First, I would like to apologize for staunchly defending this awful game for the last few weeks. It doesn't deserve it, and I don't know what I was thinking. I believe I was enamored of the sparkly new game, and wanting with all my heart to find some element of the game(aside from the gorgeous graphics) worth paying 13$ a month.

I just can't find it.

The graphics are awesome, and the idea behind the leveling system(character skill customization) is nice, but that's exactly where the pleasantries end.

I love crafting. I've done it in every single MMO I've played over the years, and FFXIV showed a real promise in this area, moving the crafters to the forefront and making them main classes, rather than subclasses. Except the implementation is awful.

Crafting shouldn't consist of clicking so many windows.

First, you equip your tool(s), then you open your main meu. From here, you proceed to select Synthesize. Following this selection, you wait for your character to assume the position(did you remember to pay for synthesis support? If not, get back up and go talk to that repair npc before continuing, because otherwise, even trying to craft a lvl 1 synth, you're going to have ridiculous hurdles if you want a successful synth).

After you've paid for synthesis support and assumed the position, it's now time to begin loading your ingredients in the boxes(anywhere from 1-8 ingredients...and hopefully it's only one, because otherwise, you'll be searching up and down through your inventory for each ingredient, and this takes some time).

After you've selected your ingredients, you're at the point where you hit your first confirmation button( we won't count all those buttons you had to hit to select the number of ingredients for your synthesis, even though there could have been up to eight of those selections, which would have been 24 clicks if you needed 8 different ingredients!).

After confirming ingredients, you now move on to confirm which recipe you plan to use from the list of available recipes for those ingredients. Thereafter, you are asked to confirm once again. After this confirmation of the recipe, you confirm that that was the recipe you had wanted to select, after which, you must again confirm that you intend to craft the given item and use the necessary crystals/shards from your inventory as well.

Finally, we've moved on to the minigame of crafting(because all those confirmation windows were not a game to me, nor should they be to you). You will now continue to click any of your various options(standard/rapid/bold/wait/class specific "luck" buff with a fun little "ching!" sound and flash...And believe me, there is nothing Rapid about rapid. it takes just as long as the other animations, and only sometimes gives a great degree of progression).

You'll click your various selections until completion or failure, which can be anywhere from 4-10 or more clicks, depending on how quick and successful you are.

There. You crafted. And got SP for your crafting class, but not very much, because the synths that give good SP are damned near impossible, even if you're supposedly in the proper rank lvl to be crafting them(and this is all with appropriate-leveled crafting gear for your level, buffs from NPCs, and food buffs).

Now it's time to do all that again.

I'm not saying it should be as simple as Wow. Pulling up a recipe, selecting "craft all", and then going out for a smoke does not a crafting class make.

But 413 confirmation windows, and 2,037 clicks later and you have 12 Beeswax does not make a crafting class either.

Sorry, I'm a little bitter from all the money I spent to build a system to meet the standards of a game that doesn't meet the standards of even the worst MMOs out on the market today.

This post was merely a warning to anyone thinking this game might be worth paying for right now.

It's also a warning to the people hanging on until the end of the first free month. Cancel a few days earlier, because SE will no doubt have the registration servers down for maintenance when the billing cycle comes up, so they can lock the waiters in to another month of billing (more money SE does not deserve).

Best of luck to the adventurers who remain steadfast and stand by the game, but Bravo! to the ones who walk away now and wait until SE fixes a LOT of issues before resubbing to Timesink, the MMO.

The fact that you even need to consider stickying a quitting thread for FFXIV speaks volumes about the game ;)

I'll still be around the forums here, praying they improve the game, and Zam is a good community to interact with.

I saw a lot of different Pikko names on Wutai. Which one was actually you? :)

Not really, unless it turns into a 10 page thread where everyone posting in it quit. I'll be honest, if only 12 people posted they were quitting in there a week, I don't see that as game-threatening.

certainly not a coincidence. Granted a review from gamespot is just ones opinion, but it is a professional opinion which typically holds more weight than some random hatter / fan boy on some forum.

That text in the review was spot on, but the score a bit low for what was actually being complained about.

In a way all the quitting threads are good; we don't need a player base looking for a "simple" button mashing MMORPG like WoW or AION. However, SE does have some work to do or even the fan boys will start leaving...

Probably a good idea, especially as we get closer to October 22nd, which is when people who got the Collector's Edition will have their 30-day trial run out. At that time I'm going to have to make a decision to cancel my subscription until SE gets things fixed.

but seriously, if you're going to QQ, and quit, and not do anything to try and better the game, FFXIV is better off without you.

I'm not defending the game, as it's terrible at the moment, but it has the potential to be great

I like the idea of a negative/quitting thread sticky. It would be nice to see the front page used to discuss playing the game, for those of us that are enjoying it. Is this just a thought? Or could you discuss with the other admins and see if it could become a reality?

They made you click a lot of buttons? How many buttons? That's horrible. That's way too many buttons to click. You shouldn't have to click buttons. Clicking buttons is way too hard. Inconvenience is the height of despair.

What are people supposed to DO to try and better the game? I'm not being snarky, I'm genuinely asking you because from what I can tell the only way to give SE feedback was during alpha/beta and they didn't listen to half of the feedback. On the off chance they have a single person checking community forums (that they did point people to on Lodestone) the quitting/frustrated/whatever threads are as good a choice as any imo.

Should Have Quit

A man is waiting for wife to give birth. The doctor comes in and informs the dad that his son was born without torso, arms or legs. The son is just a head! But the dad loves his son and raises him as well as he can, with love and compassion. After 21 years, the son is old enough for his first drink. Dad takes him to the bar and tearfully tells the son he is proud of him. Dad orders up the biggest, strongest drink for his boy. With all the bar patrons looking on curiously and the bartender shaking his head in disbelief, the boy takes his first sip of alcohol. Swoooop! A torso pops out! The bar is dead silent; then bursts into a whoop of joy. The father, shocked, begs his son to drink again. The patrons chant "Take another drink"! The bartender still shakes his head in dismay. Swoooop! Two arms pops out. The bar goes wild. The father, crying and wailing, begs his son to drink again. The patrons chant "Take another drink"! The bartender ignores the whole affair. By now the boy is getting tipsy, and with his new hands he reaches down, grabs his drink and guzzles the last of it. Swoooop! Two legs pop out. The bar is in chaos. The father falls to his knees and tearfully thanks God. The boy stands up on his new legs and stumbles to the left.... then to the right.... right through the front door, into the street, where a truck runs over him and kills him instantly. The bar falls silent. The father moans in grief.

The bartender sighs and says, "That boy should have quit while he was still a head."

I agree in a sense with the OP. There are too many pointless obstacles that make gameplay a chore rather than a "fun GAME". But to all the fanboys on this thread already...If FFXIV is your ideal game, and your definition of mmorpg fun, then by all means knock yourself out. I just know me and many other players prefer to play games intended for you to have fun rather than go to your second job.

Keep in mind I played FFXI for 5 years. Since quitting I have tried to go back to it but cant. Games these days just blow SE's idea of mmorpg out of the water. SE seems to be stuck in the 90's when it comes to mmorpg design.

Like I said in another thread. Playing FFXIV is like eating pizza without the cheese. Sure it might taste good at first...But I guarentee after a while I'll always go back to the pizza with cheese. Cant wait for SW:TOR!

Why? It happened about FFXI when the "I quit" threads and their parody filled the boards, and that game still running strong.

Honestly, this negativity about the game has gone beyond overboard. The game itself, with all it's flaws, is far, FAR more tolerable than the people complaining about it.

This is the same feeling that hit me today after work. I had been discussing ff14 with a few friends. Going over the positives and negatives. When at the end of the day you relize that you have no desire to login today cause you did all your guildleves yesterday 2 weeks after the game went live speeks volumes.

The saddest part about it all is the timid players who just get shoved around. "But but its ok, the game is good just not right now and probably not for a long time". They still play religiously through this HORRIBLE GAME (This isnt opinion its 100% fact, this game is NOT working as intented) and try to be chipper and happy about it.

They make jokes about majority of the players leaving that speak their language and they tell themselves the game succeeds no matter what. They dont have the courage to demand a better game or stand up for themselves in the gaming market.

No they enjoy trash games like FF11 and even this, pretending, somehow, that its a great game soley because they're playing it.

The sad and pathetic truth is that soon they wont be able to chat without hitting TAB before any words they want to say. Really good game.. rofl.

There isnt a positive review out and certainly noone besides blind fanboys who think "potential" is good enough in today's MMO market.

Anyway reply to this because you have to and really think your opinion matters against someone like mine's. It doesnt. Now if youll excuse me I have to go do things more important then anything youll do in your whole life. Have a gooden.

FFXI wasn't trash my good sir, it was a great game for it's time, when Japanese style MMOs were the in thing. it wasn't until Blizzard made WoW that casual mmos were the new thing.

XI has a good many number of subscribers, that played for many years and some like myself that alternated between WoW and XI for a change of pace. Personal opinion is everything, i liked XI for it's story, and how getting a to cap felt like an achievement. WoW was just too simple, max level in a week? yeah...no.

You are entitled to your ideas on the MMOs, but i have to disagree with your stance on XI, during it's hayday, it was amazing.

~Edit~

I gotta stop responding to these threads. It's one person expressing an opinion of the game (to what purpose?). Followed by 100 people expressing their opinions of the game (for arguments sake?). Peppered in are ignorant comments, ridiculous labels (second grade much?), and cheap shots at people at an attempt to be funny/amusing. I'll be sure to steer clear of threads like this in the future.

I've been following the banter about how terrible FFXIV supposedly is for a while now.

Regardless, I am not playing the PC version right now (not because of this banter however. Instead I plan to pick up the PS3 version next year. By then I imagine the game will have improved substantially.

By then I also expect a lot of these "I'm quitting so allow me to make a grande exit" players will return. Or maybe not. Either way I don't really care.

I don't get what you mean, necessarily. I loved the idea of FFXIV, and I even defended this garbage in other threads. But I realize I was just denying the hurt I felt after spending more than I should have on a new PC, and more than I should have on the collector's edition of this beautiful mistake.

You should sticky this thread so that in a couple months when these people are here playing the game again we can reference back to this and use it as fuel to flame these people.

That's awfully sweet of you. Actually it's not at all. If you come to the threads with intentions of flaming other posters, you should be banned, flatout.

There's nothing wrong with the lot of us who are extremely upset about money we've just wasted on a product being ****** about it. Prospective buyers of FFXIV are out there, and checking forums just like these, trying to make a decision as to whether they should make the investment. They have a right to know the good and the bad.

Regardless, if you want to flame, /flameon. But that's a waste of your energies in my case, because I really don't know you from Adam, so I don't care much about your lambasting.

The apology was actually directed at others who are upset with SE and this game, not to snide children who get their feelings hurt when we point out how broken their toy actually is.

The issues in FFXIV are huge and if you think it isn't , you're in a big denial. More will be leaving then playing when their one month is up. The useless response of good riddance does more harm than people posting why they are leaving. It shows the reason someone is leaving is correct due to such a useless weak response. There is no counter to the:
Lack of content.
Horrible interface.
No game market.
No direction.

From what I’ve seen on this board people aren’t just flaming away at the game on their departure. They genuinely wanted the game to succeed and posted reason for why they are leaving in hope that SE will hear these cry and fix the game.

It should be very alarming to SE that so many pre-order will be quitting. These are the people who will be spreading the news to other potential customer. These are the people who plop down a good chunk of change for a new rig and who spent the extra bucks on pre-order . These are serious players who wanted FFXIV to succeed. The type of paying customer SE dreams of.

I was this guinea pig for my band game playing friends. I won’t be extending my subscription and will not recommend it to anyone of my friends. There were a few who played on my account for a few days just to see for themselves and needless to say they will not be buying this game anytime soon.

Rating me down isn't going to keep me from pointing out your endless folly both for quitting before you even smell what you're stepping in and that anyone wants to read about it.

Same here :D People I think ratings actually mean something... It's scary... I wish I had sub-default.. It only happened once.. 5 mins later it was back to good/decent... I don't even know why..
