Bear with me for a second, This is not me trying to bash the game. This is just a true and simple "test the water" question.
I'm trying my best to patiently wait for the PS3 release. In doing so I visit these boards a couple of times a week most weeks and when the mood hits then it's increased to a couple of times a day.
I have friends who are already playing the PC version and have had trouble with server issues, control issues, lag and other things. They for the most part agree that it's a fun experience that could have been made better for various reasons.
Enough with the story, what's the point. Right? Well in the past couple of weeks all of my friends playing (on a couple of different servers) all say that they've seen a large decrese in population. This screams to me that the people who don't like the game have started to leave. A good thing I would think. But will there be enough left to let the game live on till March when the influx of PS3 players jump on? And once they do, will the game be made *right* enough for them to want to stay?
TL:DR version = I'm trying to get a pulse of the FFXIV community, does this game have enough legs to last the long run? Or am I holding my breath waiting for my new favorite MMO in FFXIV? What's your honest "feel" of the game, and why? Thanks!
