So, after pre purchasing and with sone NDA lifting recently I finally found my way over to th Official SE FFXIV forums amd I'm pretty worried..
I am most concerned about Battle Mechanics as I know (read: hope) the story is awesome. Visually, the graphics look tailored to exactly what I'd expect and I can only imagine the music I a stellar.
The biggest complaint I see were the lack of variety in BM's and WHM's...People are complaining about the fact that it only makes sense to 'spam lightening' or to spam 'cure' A series of 1-3 keys that are going to wear quickly on your keyboard from abuse..
I know I'm likely being a drama queen here but it just seems to me that the Battle Mechanics are not being recieved well and in a big way. ..Because the graphics and story can be awesome but if it's boring gameplay it has zero chances (IMO)
What do you think?
