It seems to me that a few of you are very angry at this game.
I am truly sorry it does not meet your expectations.
I however am having a great time with my Gladiator. Yes I am a tank gladiator. Yes I used to play other mmo's as a healer or dps. YES Gladiator enmity generation is interesting. But this game is very fun.
To those of you not having a good time, a small recommendation: Get in a Linkshell.
Cruise around, talk to people, GROUP UP, and have fun.
Not all games need to be "enter here, pull this, here's a boss, here's loot, rinse, repeat"
The rules for life also apply to games. Life is what you make it, fantasy life is what you make it.
There are some issues that are correct here, but these things happen. Again, I would love to have summoners, ninja, PALADINS (of the tank kind, not the warcraft type), samurai, greatswords, personal airships, etc, etc.
I'm fairly certain we can all hope for things that may or may not ever come to fruition.
Remember, this is a new game, with new controls, new problems, new encounters, please treat it as such.
It is much more fun in my opinion to group up and figure out new things in a new game and test new strategies than to read a guide and finish/max level in a few hours. If all you wish is to read a guide and beat the game, there are plenty of cheat codes and console games for that.
Any who, have fun with it, hope to see you in game!
