I won't be staying/paying for the main reason that FFXIV is not worth the monthly fee yet. I can see that in the future it will be, so maybe I will come back then.
I paid £50 for the game, and now you have been able to buy the same game for less than £10 for months. I already contributed enough and I don't see myself paying any more until I see with my own eyes that FFXIV is worth it.
We got these awesome update letters year ago too, what makes it different this time? The game is not so horrible that it makes me want to cry myself to sleep... but pretty much everything else is exactly the same...
Don't let the door hit you on your way out (i mean it i don't want *** prints on my door).. with this SE can clear up leaches and focus on the main body of the community. As they should. I see no reason why SE should cater to people who only play because it's free. V2.0 will be the game that we expected, and i have no objections to pay for the final product. I for one feel honored be a part of this game as it grows, and i will support it.
Clear up leeches? LOL We PAID for this **** game and stuck around waiting for them to fix it. "We will not charge for FFXIV until we feel it is worthy of release!" Then Yoshi releases 1.19, declares the game "50% finished ( which is apparently a lie judging from the fact they're redoing the whole **** game per this latest letter ), and then they have the gall to charge people for an unfinished game ( just like they did at launch ).
Tell you what, you can feel "honored" to throw good money after bad and support companies that want to make the customer pay for their mistakes if you like.
Those of us who are sane, however, will be leaving now. Oh, and don't worry about the door hitting me in the *** on the way out. I'm kicking that sh*t down since S-E never got around to putting the door knobs in anyway.
Oh, and don't even dare complain when the reviewers who have just barely started giving this game some credit for improving, quickly run it into the ground. Charging money = released product and this game is NOT A RELEASE WORTHY PRODUCT.
Also, since you claim in another thread that you drink $200/kg coffee from your $4000 coffee/expresso maker ( LOLOL ), you'll forgive me if I pay absolutely no heed to what you may consider worthy of money. Edited, Oct 17th 2011 12:47am by Zorvan
