I can't see a point in starting the game right now.
The game is so much better than it was at release. It really does feel like almost an entirely different game.
But, it's a year later. And there's honestly almost nothing to do.
Grind Exp, Solo probably, possible party play in the high 30s or 40s. Fun.
Guildleves/Behests/Caravan Guards(no one does that).
Main Storyline Quests.
Grand Company Quests.
Toto-Rak, Spho-placeimnotgoingtotryandspell, Darkhold, Ifrit.
Some open world NMs
End of the game. This is basically all of the content that currently exists, after all of this time.
If you are OK with that amount of content, and can wait for whatever the future brings, you could give it a shot for a bit to see if it's actually "worth" playing to you. Worth really doesn't mean the same thing to every person.
There's more stuff to come, but it all seems like to little to late to me. One full year, and most of the larger things they have planned won't be released for another year or more. That's not cool at all.
There may be a different feeling for those that have been here from the beginning, compared to people coming in now, so it's hard for anyone to give a proper opinion on that. I don't think, if I was just now thinking about the game, I would even try it though.
And things that have been bothering me all morning...
ZAM has a lot of haterz n black knights, I think far more in comparison to that you would find on the official forums. Everyone has there own opinion but I'm certainly enjoying myself.
You say this, but it doesn't seem like you actually believe it. Apparently, your opinion is the only one that actually matters, and anyone who disagrees is just "insane."
There is no god **** Z in that word.
Party Search can't be implemented... stupid database design by Tanaka's team is the cause. Thats why they are changing servers and redesigning all that stuff.
People need to stop using Tanaka and his team as a scapegoat. It's not like they did all of this in secret. At the time they had the full support of SE as a whole. There was plenty of time to see what wouldn't work, but it was added anyways. This isn't purely team Tanaka's fault. It is the fault of SE as a whole.
They knew what worked from XI. Plenty of the same people worked on both. The company clearly, at the time, didn't have problem with these things not being there. They didn't care until people really started to tell them how ****** of a system it was.
I swear people make these complaints w/o knowing why. They just blindly say "this is a basic feature and it's not in the game" it's not as simple as that. And them knowing for a year about them, which they have, doesn't mean the work is any easier to implement or fix.
Party search is a basic system! Really, it is! Every **** MMO has this. It is as simple as that. There's no reason why we shouldn't have it now. There's no real reason why it shouldn't have been here from the start.
It's obvious that Tankas messed up HORRIBLY, but SE is giving it there all to fix the game. You have to respect them for that.
Again, it's not like he was developing the game, by himself, in some secret laboratory somewhere. SE knew what he and his team had made, and clearly gave their OK on it. I'm not going to give them respect just for trying to fix a failed product. The results may or may no deserve some amount of respect, but the act itself does not. It's for money by the way.
This is just insane, you're insane. Just because you didn't like the game and didn't have fun doesn't mean other people didn't enjoy it.
Just because you like the game and have fun doesn't mean other people have to like the game and enjoy it. Just stop, really.
You have posted a ton today. I completely understand excitement, but my god. And it's all been complete ****. Black Knights this, Haterz that. Jesus.
People have differing opinions. You are not the answer to everything. You're experience is not the same as everyone else. Get over yourself. It's not even a discussion of different ideas, it's just you being the **** definition of a white knight. Nothing about her post seemed "insane" to me, but you decided to go ahead and attack(yes, attack) her anyways.
Everyone has the right to post and express their opinions on the game here, and you should really respect that.
Such an overall crappy attitude from you. "I'll be a level 50 and YOU'll basically be new character!" Like some insult from a child.
