1.23 had how many primal fights ? 3 ? 2 dungeons and white raven.... So much content... So much more than a freshly released GW2... Or a freshly released rift... Or WoW... Oh wait those games had 100X more content.... Also leveling up another class does has nothing to do with a game having more content, it does has to do with extending content, two different ideas not the same, as for it being easy mode it will be, if you consider wow's leveling easy mode, now will the end game be as hard as Wow's ? Who knows, SE has a track record of horrible boss fight mechanics, so that is to be seen, as for your un-taped FF market, this has been thrown around countless times, XI launched at a time, where SE was still considered to be Squaresoft, which is not the case now, FF was still the best RPG series around, and it was released on PC, PS2, 360... Yet! It only reached 500k.... What makes you think that now, when SE is a joke and a shell of what it once was, and Final Fantasy is a tarnished name, and every new entry is viewed with hesitance, will this "Un-Taped" marked emerge from their caves ? Please show me the facts :)
Also stating that X game is currently better than this game, is not being negative, is being realistic. I know most people around here, hate dealing with facts, and are into this "Faith of yoshi" thing, but facts >>>> Faith.
GW2 did not have traditional endgame at launch. I did not play rift, the content remark was about most mmos at launch. WoW? When did I say XIV had more content than WoW? WOW is an mmo with many years under it's belt. It did not have 100 times more content than XIV ARR at launch states. You must be in the bunch that considers the leveling and story progression a hinderance to reaching endgame content. Unless each class and job have the exact same story it's not extending sh%t.
I nor you know for sure. But maybe XI, whether it was released in their prime didn't reach out to that fanbase because it was based around an everquest model, too timesinky, high hardware requirement for pc or the payment model? I do not need to show you the facts. The FF series is still selling 2mil plus, yes even your precious to hate XIII mini series lol. 2 million- 500k= untapped smart ***...
People are still buying FF regardless if we like their latest direction or not. Final Fantasy IX was better than VIII, FFVI was better than VII. WoW was better than Swtor, Swtor was better than Ragnarok Online. I could spout that jargon all day long(in a little boy pouting tone). What does that accomplish? Nothing improves without feedback and ingenuity.
I am not a Yoshi lover. I love, hate, cherish, resent each individual differently at any point in time.Individual perception of a product is not what matters most. It's the larger perception of the masses that will determine the outcome. If the game tanks then you will have that smirk of I told you so. But if it does well even though you think it's a horse's ***. Maybe, just maybe.. You might wonder, Am I wrong?
