I'll do you one better. Knowing you'd write something asinine like that, I figured I'd spenda bout 15 minutes this morning compiling all the crap you've spewed on these forums together. So here you go. Have fun.
4 hours of trying to log in and i finally get queue (and thi sis on a JP server which should be about dead this time a day mind you).. i mean really.. 4 hours.. i used to do it in 30 minutes or less before it was fixe... if this is "fixed" i liked broken WAY more
i bet im gonan DC as soon as i zone into an area...
that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm You Can't Access
cant be played on weekends? I played the game flawlessly on tues, wed and thursday without ANY of the login issues that everyone was having/talking about (though this was on a JO sever) however from the last 2 days I havent been able to get on at all, either lobby server wouldnt load, wouldnt updated jp character list, or the world is full (or a connection error occurred)
Id say SE fell on their sword with this one, they do all this to make the game not suck compared to 1.0 and ppl cant even pay it. I for one would take a subpar game that I can actually play over a good one that I cant play 99% of the time.
They have 49 servers and 37 of them are closed for registration.. at this rate SE would have to both DOUBLE the amount of servers they have AND significantly (double) increase the capacity of their existing ones. I bet EVERY review for this game is gonan spent half the review talking about how horribly difficult it was to review the game due to hardly ever being able to play rather than actually talking about the game itself.
especially th ebolded one:
"Cons-combat, targeting was a mess, found it slow, frustrating and unsatisfying
-chat, with no voice chat it just adds to the frustration while in a dungeon or mid combat
-no interactions, no collecting or searching the world for anything
-quests, I thought the quests were extremely boring and not just the 100s of fetch quests but the dungeons themselves, I can't see myself wanting to return to any of them.
-interface, I found the controls and menus just as frustrating, nothing was seamless or effortless."

I don't really get it.
I'm really friendly in-game but the reason I'm having trouble is that the Duty Finder always pairs you with people from other servers and you can't be friends with them. So, the people you were partying with end up being like NPCs lol.
I've been having some chats with cool people in-game over /shout and stuff, but it's difficult to ask other people in /shout to party up or anything because we're all the same class pretty much (class based areas).
I'm on Midgardsormr. I have some friends already playing but I'm trying to meet people and it's tough on this game compared to other games.
Anyone else having issues?

welcome to the 21st century MMO.... where ppl actually think its ok for a MASSIVELY MULTIPL
aYER game to be as soially interactive and teamwork based as a single player game.... it would seem im the only one who understand that if i wanted to play a game by myself theres 35 other Final Fantasies i can do just that in (and single player games in general) but apparently single player focus also has to be the majority rule in MMOs now days otherwise its "outdated" Clearly I dont know what the MM part of MMO means anymore lol -waits for the rate downs-
seriously SE giving away EXP just for entering an area for teh first time?
"In the event a player fails to complete a quest battle several times, they will receive an enhancement effect upon trying again. "
Guess they dont wanna make anyone work for anything any more though the fac that they have to have such a feature iin teh first place proves that some of teh content must be hard enough that not being able to complete it is a possibility... that makes me happy.. now lets hope those buffs for sucking to badly are optional... I wanna earn my victory the hard way not have it given to me out of pity. Just like I (we all) had to do with Maat
lol so youre saying if back when we were voting on the unofficial cst/est server and teh ZAM< server and you voted Gilgamesh (for example) Gilgamesh won the votes.. now you try to create a character on that server (the one you planned to join and voted on months ago). youd be completely fine with that and join a different server and miss out on joining the zam FC? I seriously doubt that.
In my case theres an RP community on Gilgamesh.. sure i could very easily create on any server now then transfer whenever character transfer hits, however i planned to RP as a lost newbie, you learns and grows... now with how easy/fast it is to level on this game i might be a level 50 in multiple classes by the time world transfer comes out (which would be sad if i could achieve that in this game considering i work 40 hours a week.) would be kinda hard to RP as a totally clueless/lost newbie when youre a level 50 battle hardened powerhouse/veteran wouldnt you say? lol
Its not a permanent restriction ... so I don't understand why you would be upset
read last paragraph.
the only wY TO "FIX" THAT PROBLEM WOULD BE HOLD OFF PLAYING UNTIL THE "CRISIS" IS AVERTED AND THE SERVER I WANT BECOMES UNLOCKED (opps had caps on) now that would be fine and dandy (i have 20+ other games i havent even played yet waiting would be extremely easy for me) except a family member took off the next two days from work (my normal off days) to play with me 24/7 those days (at least its paid off days) so now im kinda obligated to play with him the next two days otherwise those days he took off would be a waste and coulda been saved/used for something else lol. So yeah.
Its difficult to advance as a DPS now because the queue times are "unbearable" ppl have to shout for parties or -gasp- make friends with a tank or healer... i must say i actually like teh sound of that (if its true)
you mean to tell me theres actually a million tanks and healers running around? thats rare in an mmo
enhances attack rate, lower recast on abilities, enhance abilities in some way or even give additional abilities (i doubt that part), or items weapons that has a debuff chance (like a 1% poison chance per attack or something like that?
booo so basically all the current equipment in this game does is raise stats?
