Heya everyone, I've been looking into FFXIV since it came out but due to the somewhat negative reviews it got I gave up on buying it until I got my own idea on it. Sadly, there aren't any free trials out yet so I was hoping one of you could offer me a buddy key they don't plan on using. Thanks in advance!

I wouldnt give a buddy pass to my worst enemey right now. I will wait till changes are made then give you one so you can see how the game was sorta meant to be.

Wow... okay.
Is it really as bad as most people say on the interface level? What makes it so tedious to play for people?

There are probably tons of threads about this already, but the UI is comprised of nested menus (like FFXI but perhaps worse), has no shortcuts or hotkeys, and there's considerable lag while trying to navigate through said menus. There is no inventory sort feature in the game yet, and equipping an item is a 5-6 step process unless you go through the trouble of creating macros. It takes 10 seconds to vendor each and every item that you want to sell due to lag plus an unnecessary multi-step sale process.

Chat is also currently a disaster, and there's no player search function.

If you can get past all of those issues, the game can actually be fun to play.

Hehehe, maybe it would be best to wait to even try it out. Though they might come out with a free trial if they eventually fix these issues. It would be great to see if I can get pass these issues right now and maybe be able to enjoy the game underneath. Anyway, I'll still be looking for a buddy pass. Thanks for the info Izuul.

Does Buddy Pass has an expiration date? E.g. it will only work for x number of days after you registered the collector's edition code?

Let people make up their own minds. You don't like the game? That's fine. If someone wants to judge for themselves, why deprive them of that opportunity? This game isn't universally despised, despite what these forums would lead you to believe.

I and many others enjoy the game, so let's not pretend that anyone who tries it is certain to be turned off.

Then the OP can go buy his own copy. While I don't have an opinion on how bad this fail game is myself, I have to agree, I wouldn't give my worst enemy a buddy pass at this point, that kind of mean is a felony in some states.

The OP made a polite request. You've gone from stating that not giving him a pass is doing him a favour to rudely stating that he should buy his own copy. Make up your mind.

I enjoy this game as well.. try it out for yourself. Defferent strokes for different folk. I still dont understand the cancerous negativity on this forum. I myself will admit that there are issues with the game. Nothing that can't and and won't be fixed. This is a game fansite after all. There are people on here that are upset that there are bugs, and aspects that dont live up to thier expectations.. I get that,But to tell people not to play a game.. on a fansite forum is Trolling in my opinion.

Ah it's alright, I can understand someone telling me to buy it to find out if it's good or not. But, I've thought about it myself and I wouldn't have made this thread if I didn't come to the conclusion that I won't buy the game until I try it out. That is all.

Oh and, just to lighten up the tensions, you wouldn't give your key to your worst enemy but how about to a total stranger? How don't even know how that argument stands heh.
