I am Not Quitting the game!!!!!Follow

#1 Oct 10 2010 at 2:48 AM Rating: Good
I love the game and everything about it. Just like any other MMO out there after a fresh release and being only under a Month old this game has some rough edges but the potential is there to be a great game and that out wieghs the flaws that are expected to be there at the launch of a brand new MMO.


Just thought I would change it up a bit


I quit threads = 50+

I am not quiting Threads = 1

I would like to see if your opinion changes in a month.

Oh look, another kid that thinks they're breaking the mold by being positive and using the stupid "every MMO sucks equally at launch" argument. FYI, this does nothing to stop the flood of pointless repeat topics.

Depends what this patch is like.

If it's REALLY good, a lot of people will probably go back.

If it's not, then... well... I fear for the game.

For the people playing, and the ones who bought new PC's... I really, really feel sorry for them. I hope SE get everything sorted. But I'm not too hopeful.

lol wow you got slated more than the people who posted they quit.

Me myself i was in two minds about the game, but i feel i'm finding myself now more attached, sure alot needs to be done,
but i feel also SE have only gave us the essence of the game so far for us to get accustomed to it, people are still playing 3000+ on my server (besaid), call me a fan boy i don't care :P i am and always will be!

I see the potential of the game, while i think others don't they've all been endgame on other MMO's for too long and have alot to compair (myself one of them at the start) but now i'm really getting to handle the mechanics, the UI is clunky true, but its not unplayable.

i'm sure within the next month we'll see major improvements, with more zones being opened, chocobo's being implemented, etc. the Forums will die down and start actually being about the game progression, not the problems. the world will be more enjoyable for us that wish to stay.

this game has a 50/50 love hate thing going on at the minute, people tend to remember a put down more than a complement, hence why it feels like the reviews are one sided at the min.

A good quote from the stereophonics "It only takes one tree to make a thousand matches, it only takes one match to burn a thousand tree's." I feel this seems appropriate.

I'm Staying!!

Good for you, ap0stle. You're proof that there really is no minimum expectation of quality necessary for today's marketplace. You are a corporation's wet dream! You must be so proud. ;)

That's true, it is pretty bad, but you can still play in it. For me though, I'm just not willing to subject myself to a bad UI again from SE in a MMO. FFXIV is actually worse than FFXI, at that. That's more shocking than anything, I would've thought that having developed FFXI they'd take their good ideas and build on them, while taking the bad ideas and reworking them.

At least in FFXI, I had windower to get around some of the poor implementation. Between spellcast, scripting, and my G15 keyboard I actually was able to get by the UI enough that when I was playing the game I was actually playing the game, not maneuvering through a UI to play. Not only is SE more aggressive about stopping developers that make tools that allow me to put up with the game, but they're even going back on things like gear swaps and not allowing those in combat at all.

None of the problems in FFXIV make the game unplayable, but after playing FFXI for 5 years I was looking for something better than that if I was going to keep paying SE money. My main dealbreaker was that if SE hadn't learned from their public relations blunders in FFXI I probably wouldn't play. Things like horrendous customer service and isolating the developers from the players. There has been no change at all in how SE interacts with its users, and the quality of the game has actually degraded.

I could still play the game, but honestly SE hasn't earned a subscription fee from me. I'm voicing my opinion to SE the only way I know that actually has any impact, with my money. In the long run, maybe if enough people voiced their opinion with their wallets, SE would be hit hard enough that they'd start opening up their dev team, start seriously taking player feedback into account, and releasing prompt fixes to problems rather than sit on them in silence for weeks/months like they've done so far. That's asking an awful lot of SE and I really don't think they have it in them to do it. Not without firing all of their developers and hiring an entirely new crew, at least.

I must be playing a different ffxiv. All the problems are old news at this point. Is there more stuff popping up that I havent noticed yet? I spend a fair amount of time playing but havent seen anything major besides the usual rants.

Hopefully there will be something of worth in the upcoming patch this week.

I'm not quitting either, and I'm sure most of the people who aren't quitting are playing the game and not on forums complaining. Thee are still at least 2.3k on my server at any given time of the day, multiply that by like 12 servers, its fine I'm sure. I suppose we'll see how many are on when the free month is over though. I odn't think it will drop as much as people are expecting though, but I'm sure it will drop some. But also it'll pick up again when the ps3 version comes out, so who cares anyways.

Why is SE so against player mods? I've never understood that. Isn't that one of the things people like about WoW so much?

Posts are starting to appear about things we didn't know about in the game. That is a pretty solid sign of people bailing before they even know what color the sky is. C'mon fixes buhbye whiners!

Because the hatred for WoW runs so deep in the square devs that anything that blizzard uses, even if its a good idea, is automatically shunned.

So really just as bad as the "I hate this game for so and so reason and I dont care if its a newly released MMO its not a finished product"

Last I checked thats why people get a trial period. Don't like the game, leave.

Is that what you really want? All six of you who just love the game as it is can play together without having to hear what's legitimately wrong?

I do kinda agree with this, in a way.

Blizz has had to develop their game around mods for several years. "Healbot" wasn't the first mod, but it was really the first one that made the game infinitly easier. A healer using the default UI, and/or mouse over macros had alot more of a challenge, now with "healbot" and "grid" healing is basically turned into a minigame.

That being said, there's other ways of stopping mods, instead of just making a clunky serverbased UI.

I also will not be quitting, maybe it has to-do with my LS, and that we have so much fun doing random stuff and having wicked conversations that keeps me coming back. Or maybe I am just crazy, but the major bugs don't really bother me that much.

So far one of my best memories was during the OB where I ran into two random people, we ended up grouping together doing LQ and just grinding. We wiped a few times, and laughed about it, it was great. All I could think of was WOW this reminds me of the good old days of FFXI when you grouped together with strange and ended up making long time friends. I think that's why I like this game I see the potential there to make all those great memories that FFXI could do. It just needs some more time, and logically speaking SE has invested a large amount of time, energy, and money into this product for the sake of their shareholders they will fix this game. It just the smart business move.
