For the CE players(which feels like a large % of the population) SE asked gaming mags to give them a month before reviewing the game. Not to many did as SE asked BUT if they had, as of today 23 days in would the reviews have been any better? Either SE has something huge up their sleeve for the next 7 days OR it was just a desperate attempt by a scared company to ask the gaming community give them a month before reviewing their product. Which do you think it is?

Headstart is rarely, if ever, considered the "release" and se has at no time ever reffered to the ce start as the "release" either.

Just saying.

I'll give you that. I'm not gonna make up some retardedly wrong % here but it didnt really feel like a "head start" when the majority of the players started on the 22nd. Those customers 30 day preview ends on the 22nd wonder how the majority of them would rate the game.

Who knows what they meant at this point. Since they refuse to communicate anything, we may as well break out the magic 8-ball and ask it.

It was asked in an attempt to get the first month uninterupted sales, first month is very important for various reasons including PR and having something nice to show the money men. Very little will of changed by the 1 month period as can be seen and players are going to be asked to pay soon on that state of game. I've never seen such a horrible launch in terms of the reception a big name game has recieved and this case rightly so.

Asking for a month free is taken with a pinch of salt by most thankfully, if the game is good or at least decent with some bugs then thats fine but if it's obviously horribly rushed and terrible it's their duty to tell the public how things are so they dont waste their money and line the pocket of inept/stupid dev teams. The way this game was released and still is (even if you like the game) is unforgivable and shows utter contempt for the fanbase.

30 days to do the reviews, I think the scores would be the same or lower for a few sites, comments would be more harsh like "1 month and not big improvement for the game..."
FFXIV is dead, SE managed to kill the game really fast, good luck to the ones that decide to stay.

If you turned the tables and gave SE an extra week to make good on their 'promise', you still wouldn't have any better result. Two weeks from now you will still be playing the same game you're playing today. When I say 'promise' I am referring to the implied changes or improvements SE supposedly has planed. It stands to reason that SE wouldn't expect a review to be any more favorable 30 days later if nothing at all had changed. The only other reason I can think of is that they wanted people to buy the game before reading reviews.

To be honest though, despite their implied 'super duper miracle patch'(lets be honest, that is what it would take to get this games ratings up from the dismal 4.x area to a respectable mark) I don't believe you will see it happen over the course of the next week, two weeks or even two months. If somehow SE does manage to pull this one together it would be up there among the greatest comebacks in history.
