or around there since i started to play, maybe a bit longer and i am liking the game so far. I mean i come on forums a read a lot and there is a lot of negative, for which some is well worth. My opinion has been if i like it then ill play it, if not then i don't. I never really found anything useful in coming and ******** and moaning over silly stuff. The game is far from perfect, but i think SE has seen the major complaints and will fix it, and that will only make things better. I played FFXI but not until it was out for awhile, i was curious though as to how it was when it first launched? Was it perfect in all aspects? I would be interested in hearing a FFXI veteran maybe explain how it was. Well that's all i have to say, basically just wanted to say im having fun, and that's whats counts for me!! Take care all and have fun playing whatever it is that makes you happy and have fun!

I have fun sometimes a lot of the time I just feel like I am killing time.

I'm also enjoying the game. I have a relaxed attitude towards it; I enjoy learning about game mechanics, exploring and interacting with others.

After my first week I didn't understand much about the game and that's a good thing (was nice to be a noob again). All I can say is, enjoy the game and take your time =)

I played FFXI from PS2 launch which was I think 6-7 months after it launched in Japan. If I recall the game launched in Japan with the cap set at 50, no AH, and only 6 playable classes. I'm not sure what else was similar to the launch of FFXIV. This seems to be the way SE does things, they released the game how they wanted to and decided to change it to better suite the player base after getting massive amounts of feedback. I think it will make for a better game in the long run. Why release a game full of content and things that the player base doesn't want, when you could release the bare bones and build off feedback?

Edit: The things I enjoyed the most in FFXI was the community and the sense of accomplishment. I played Vanguard for 3 months and don't want to talk about that. I played WoW for a year and only ever had a couple good friends in game. I think the reason being that you never needed anyone else to progress through the game until you started raiding, so even at end game you never really spent any leisure time playing with any one person. Blizzard did add the dungeon finder shortly before I quit, which was a lot of fun for leveling an Alt. As far as the sense of accomplishment goes... Yeah it felt good beating Yog after 30+ wipes that week, but it was almost pointless. I never felt good about getting gear in WoW 'cause I knew that within 1-2 months there would be a new content patch out that would make my gear completely obsolete. New content is great, don't get me wrong. But why does the new gear have to be a tier above what I have, why not almost parallel or with slightly different effects? I didn't like the fact that the gear I just spent 24+ hours a week for the last month to get would soon be trash before I really even got to enjoy it. I'd never go back to FFXI knowing that the gear and progress I spent years playing for is obsolete.
