After playing the Tor beta test both weekends they had it... I have come to the conclusion that if I want to play WoW I will go and buy WoW. I dont want to play it, not even with a lightsaber.

With that being said, FFXI was always my favorite mmo, not my first, my favorite, but lets be realistic here, ffxi is not what it used to be. So after reading about all the changes coming, I am giving FFXIV to live up to what it should of been from the start, and I really hope that this time it does become that.

I am proud to say I am currently installing, and will be creating a new character soon.

The game isn't perfect yet, but it's getting better by leaps and bounds every update. Welcome back, and I hope you have a good time.

Can you tell me a little about ToR, my group is buying it and I am reluctant.
I have put FFXIV on the back burner until out of nursing school MAY 2012 BABY!

Why did you say it was like WoW?

because it IS wow. I am not making it up either. If I could upload the videos from my phone I showed my friends I would. It is wow with a star wars background, I am not trying to sound negative either, because after ffxiv tor was the only mmo i was looking forward to. It was a huge honor to get into the beta, but the whole time everything about it was wow, the pvp, the game play. It does tell a fantastic story, and thats about all that was different. Its still get quest, grind mobs, click your items in your bag, go back to quest giver xp and get a level. Oh but this time stead of that epic glowing oversized sword, you have a light saber.

It really pains me to down talk this game too. I cancelled all my preorders, and I am not looking back. You are better off just picking up wow now and playing that. I will continue to say it, the wow killer everyone wants is not going to come in the form of a wow clone, it will be something different, much like how xi was so different for so long.

well then maybe you'll enjoy the final days of XIV as it is, but from the looks of it, 2.0 is really copying WoW hard. I'm not going to fault them for it, but I also don't really believe in the future of the game anymore. I might be wrong, and I am still interested to see what happens, but I'm fairly cynical about the whole thing at this point.

When it comes to sitting around not doing anything for long periods of time, only being active for short windows, and marginal changes and sidegrades I'd say FFXI players were the perfect choice for politicians.

I do not see what everyone is claiming makes it look like wow? What pictures were you looking at? all i saw was some concept art and promises.

also looks are just looks. Sonic and Mario look like the same game from pictures, but if you play them they were vastly different. but sonic 1 and sonic 2 were the same. I wouldn't jump to say this game is going to be like wow unless it plays like wow, and that we wont know until the day of.

So basically a glowing, oversized sword.

Oh sweetie you're as much of a ********* as I. I am a nurse (RN, BSN) and FFXI, now FFXIV player. We really do love a lot of work for very little pay, don't we? ;) Seriously, my best to you in your gaming and work career. You may not make as much money as in all the myriad other things someone of your intelligence and drive to succeed can do (for make no mistake about it, nursing is a HARD science and not for the weak of mind, heart or stomach) but for the rest of your life you will be able to look at yourself in the mirror and know with certainty that you have made the world a better place by being here. THAT is worth all the money you won't have, all the weekends and holidays and nights you WILL work and all the abuse your body, heart and soul will take in a very brutal and often seemingly thankless profession...thankless until you get that heart beat back after long minutes of CPR, or see the smile on the face of a family member or receive that rarest of all things, an actual word or look of gratitude from someone...when you have time to look for it. So... Best wishes in the game and in your future career from someone who has been in the trenches a good while. XOXOX
