I am not being sarcastic in the title of this post. Even though I've spent more time trying to log on than actually playing this week, I must say that this game is vastly improved. I left 1.0 after 9 months because I couldn't take it anymore. IMHO that game was irreparable. There was barely any content and gameplay was a joke. I had friends that stayed and waited for update after update, but none of their cajoling could get me to return to an experience that left me so scarred. I was scarred because I really wanted the game to be good. Alas, it sucked hard, and after grinding 4 jobs to level 50 I had had enough. When I got the invite to try the beta for 2.0, I was wary to say the least. However when I put in my code and logged on, I remembered what I liked about this game. First of all it's absolutely gorgeous, the graphics are stunning and I've always admired SE's design sense. Secondly, it is so much less of a grind than FFXI, that I feel a lot less stressed out about playing it. And now that there is content (and chocobos and airships lol), the game is a lot more appealing and , dare I say, fun to play. In conclusion, cheers SE for putting out a product that I don't find to be embarrassingly lacking. Now fix the **** server capacity so I can play the **** thing.
