The game is very good now, polished, combat is fun... But the server was dead. I walked through LL and I saw like 10% of the people i used to walk through during peak times (I logged in at peak times also). It was shocking and depressing. No trash talk on say or shouts, the game felt like a private server.
I wonder if this game will ever recover its population and grow up in content/expansions or it will be like everquest 2. It just felt a world where everybody left behind, very sad because the game needed now content, all polishing seemed to be good.
With so many horrible MMORPG in the market this one could have been a home for a decade or more. Ah Square how could you release the game in that state?

Thanks for the post, Mclaren. As someone that's been playing steadily throughout all the changes, it feels kind of like the small, incremental changes are tough to notice. It's nice to know that it's improved.
But yes, I've felt the same about the number of players. They've been slowly dwindling, and then there seemed to be a steep drop off after the servers shut down because of the tsunamis. Gamers can be fickle, and there are too many other good games to hold players' attention for too long. I'm still hopeful the players will come back, but I think it may be a while before they do, if
Man, I hope they do.
I've actually had some folks ask me if they should come back now. I've been telling them to wait a month or two. The longer they wait, the more changes will be made, and hopefully more content will be added, too. So if they wait a few months, the game will hopefully be even better. I want the game to be as good as possible before telling people to give it a 2nd chance, because I think they're going to be much less likely to give the game a 3rd chance.
