Interesting to see so far, how many chose maybe, and how many chose a definitive yes. They are nearly equal.
Maybe = the ball is in SE's court right now.
As many of us who criticised SE for the flaws in the game mentioned in other threads, we really hope to see FFXIV succeed.
The majority of us are not closing our doors on SE yet, but SE has to show us that they value the opinions of their long-time fans (who have been their loyal paymasters in FFXI for between 60 to 78 months) and come up with concrete plans to improve the current state of the game.
My wife and myself have unsubcribed but, yes, we will definitely be re-subscribing once the UI has been fixed.
Of our FFXI ex-LS mates (all of us are RL friends as well), a couple are waiting for the PS3 release, 7 or 8 others are considering letting their subscription lapse till some improvements have been made (they will make a decision when it's closer to 20th of this month), and about 3 others are past the MMORPGs phase of their lives.
