I got into beta no problems, no D/c's no lag or log in issues. I love how the game plays even thou I was more about checking out the area then leveling. I did make it to lvl 14 with one class, and did get to see a little bit of the story, I have a few issues.
1) I don't know if its because it was beta or not but, I was very sad with the lack of voice acting in the CS. I don't need every npc chatting with me. But if its part of the main story I think it needs to be voiced.
2) the map I found myself using the big square one more then the compass map its not to much of a issue as long as i can get rid of the compass map and use the big square one instead (yes silly I know )
3) and the last one for me I don't know how the boats and airships will work I do hope we can sail on them like FFXI but just not as long
