I know that they weren't trying to make an FFXI clone, but I'm just finding it hard to believe that they scrapped almost all of the stuff that worked really well in FFXI and built new a MMO from scrap. I'm so baffled how of different, even just the little things are - from chatting to targeting party members to chaining mobs ect.
I'm having a hard time keeping my RL friends, who used to static in FFXI, interested...
But I still love and play FFXIV, and I'm really excited for the new updates in Nov. and Dec.
It's just that... I guess I'm just hoping it will bring my friends and your friends back to stay and play! ^^
