I feel betrayed.
What this game is lacking is so clearly obvious. There's 100s of posts that hit it right on the nose. How can all these gamers know after just a week of playing what this game is lacking when SE appears to be completly in the dark with their pants down. The reviews are horrible and they should be. All the things that need to be implemented are basic fundamentals to a mmos success. For a simple example, no ah. Some may say "xi launched with no ah." exactly why I feel betrayed. They tried to get around it again? Maybe when they launch their 3rd mmo they will learn?
Enough about the ah though. That is not my topic. What is my topic is the feeling of betrayal when a company I admire makes the same mistakes over again. I expected much much much more. At this point I feel that some of you poster are more qualified to design this game than the SE devs. After 8 years of 11 and the strcture of a well defined company with a long history of games, couldn't they figure out what we want by now? That is their job.
Simply put, this game could be great but for the list of elementary flaws that a company with the history and man power of SE should not be making. I am betrayed by their failure.
