nice comeback from the fail.
What people dont realize is that no matter what happened when this game came out it was going to be slammed on.
How do you expect people to feel amazed and wonderfied about another MMO after theres already been 50+ on the market.
So sorry you werent handed a wonderland full of candy and **** for you to fall into a stupor over.
Game is exactly what most of us playing wanted it to be, which is why we are playing. Just because you dont like it doesnt make it a bad game.
Now kindly GTFO and go play Hello Kitty Online. I heard it has cute things in it for you to beat on.
Right because FFXIV is home to the hardest of the hardcore. In case you haven't noticed (those fanboi shades DO have a strong tint), the universal panning of this game has nothing to do with expecting a 100% streamlined game. We know there's not supposed to be a lot of content. We know there will be bugs and server hiccups.
What people are upset about is being handed a completely unfinished game. I don't mean unfinished in the coding sense, but clearly, from the UI to ridiculous game mechanics to the native PC controls to the maps to EVERYTHING, this is unfinished in the conceptual aspects. This game has potential, but knowing SE (played FFXI for years), it will likely never reach its full potential because SE refuses to meet a changing global gaming market.
There is absolutely no excuse for presenting customers with this half-baked mess and not apologizing wildly for it; not offering a concrete plan of attack in fixing it and trying to restore some of their customer trust and fidelity.
But then, you're right, I fail. I fail all the way to the bank because I knew better than to buy it. I knew better than to convince myself that I was having fun because the game isn't fun. It's not fun AT ALL. There is nothing in this game that remotely endorses, supports or even hints at fun.
I'll gladly fail by your metrics. And in 3 months when you've come out to yourself that you don't like this sad little game either, I'll see you in Hello Kitty. I'll be the kitty in leather bending you over in-game.
