I see Filth is trying to still persuade people that this isn't a new game.
Maybe someday, someone will buy it.
End of the day what we have here is still rushed
the endgame is mediorcre and badly planned
I assume you have experience to back this up?
the world is small due to lack of time to make a proper world
So...you pretty much complained about something then gave a reason to dismiss your complaint. Pretty clever.
I'm counting 17 areas and I'm pretty sure I'm missing some. FFXI had around 26 on initial release?
Problem is, 11's were not as fleshed out as 14s.
the leveling system is badly thought out
How? How's your third or fourth job to 50 doing?
there is almost no hack/bot/rmt detection systems in place.
Ever see the recent STFU report? Seen much gil spamming in Ul'dah or one of the other main cities over the last few days? Certainly not to the degree it was last week. This implies they are actually working on it.
Even free to play games have anti hack software, FFXIV has none and when they add PVP that will make it a joke. Warp hacking is annoying, until you add PVP and then it gives them a massive advantage that they will use and claim lag.
I'm glad you seem to have intricate knowledge about how FFXIV was programmed. Please share!
It's like FFXI all over again, hackers and botters being top of the game and SE not caring at all.
Been out less than a month. They've already made huge steps in all the directions you've listed. I think you're just grasping at straws here.
Eh another whiny post from preludes with little merit to it, another day. Edited, Sep 20th 2013 6:02am by HitomeOfBismarck
