So... let me start by saying, I have already equipped my "flame shield +1" so please no personal attacks, I'm hoping to keep the conversation civil... even on subsequent posts 3 pages from now, please no name calling.
Next I'd like to say I truly believe I am a huge critic of this game, I am absolutely furious about some of the decisions they've made... Almost a barrage of attacks upon the hardcore elite MMO players. I think they've taken casual, and said "more-is-better." Nonetheless, I am finding something strange going on here. I think people LOVE this game. I LOVE this game (I hate it too, but I fricking love it.)
I believe this game has the potential to be the next major blockbuster MMO that shakes up the market... Think about it. The game is going to release multiplatform, then right when it's going strong, it's going to release again for PS4.
With the system requirements they've made you can play it on ANY computing device (don't even try and tell me you can't... I have a 4 year old macbook and the game runs as smooth as a Ferrari.)
Here's the part that makes me think it's going to shake up the MMO scene... while I'm in game, I hear people raving, RAVING about the game. You hear isolated grumbles, but for the most part people are excited about this. Like seriously excited... as am I. Which is odd because I thought the amount of dumbed down play they added would be a major detractor from the experience... but I have to say, dumbed down can still be fun if it's done right... and this game is just fun, there isn't much more to say.
I know this is a bold prediction, but I think there might be a new bully on the block who is ready to take on the ultimate giant, "WoW." The time is perfect, WoW is getting old, people want something new... and I think FF XIV ARR might just be the game which is going to give it a run for it's money.
Kudos to SE for taking a disaster of epic, I mean EPIC proportions and turn the dial 180 to give us something which could be a success of epic, and I mean EPIC proportions. Wow, I'm truly impressed by you SE... haven't said that in **** far too long.
