Hey, all. I played in the beta and actually bought the CE of the game (and actually developed the Android Eorzea Clock), and then just never installed it. I just ordered the parts for a new computer (Core i7 2600K, 16Gb DDR3, GTX460), and was thinking of giving it another try once I get the system built.
Specifically in the beta, I was frustrated with the lack of an Auction House, the terribad controls, and the overall slowness of the interface. The levequests also seemed repetitive, and I didn't like the exp caps they put in place.
In your opinion, how much has this stuff improved? I hear there is a Market search now, and that the controls have improved. Have they added anything more substantial, like NMs and storyline fights and stuff like that?
I've been sort of halfway following the game, and I know they put a new dev team in place. I've read bits and pieces here in the forums that give me hope that it might be better, but I've gone through a lot of posts and still don't really have a clear idea. I'm sure this will probably start some arguments, which isn't my intention. I just want to know if it's worth spending 20 hours or so installing and checking the game out before I decide one way or another. So who can convince me whether it's worth it or not? Specifically, I'd like to hear from those who played in the beta and recently came back and their experience, but I'd be open to hearing everyone else's opinions, too. Thanks!
