Sad face.

 Nope not a troll post.  I tried it, didn't like it.  Like all Asian themed MMO's I've tried I am not into the their version of fantasy.  It doesn't mean its bad it just means its not for me.  I prefer the dark gritty world of European/Western fantasy.  I prefer my atmosphere to be more akin to Rift, Neverwinter, Everquest or Asheron's Call.

 

I also dislike slow paced combat, now I only got to level 7 but I still feel the game is not going to speed up at all, I just prefer the more action type combat associated with games like Neverwinter, Tera or Elder Scrolls but everyone has their own opinion and I am entitled to mine, doesn't make it right for you but thought I'd share mine since this is by-product of a forum.  Good luck to those who stick with the game, I'm sure it will do fine. However It isn't for me.  I'll be waiting for something else to come along to suit my tastes.

In later lvl's you can get gear that reduce the GCD.

 

Does anyone know how well it will scale at level 50? It seems dumb to itemize it. If the intent is to have a lower GCD, then just make the damn GCD lower. Why does SE always have to do things the complicated way?

Well, it's always interesting to see what people's preferences are. My opinion is that FF14 trounces Neverwinter.

As far as your first dislike: you dislike Asian themed games but you played one. That you knew was a japanese game. I don't ever like peas. Ever. But you never find me eating something I know has peas and then complaining it has peas.

Tab targeting? they never said it was anything other than tab targetting and I highly doubt you read info that led you to believe it was anything but tab targetting. So why play something you don't like?

Why do players set themselves up only to knowingly dislike a game?

Well, I could make a guess but it's not nice.

 Simple really:  Why not try something to see if your tastes have changed since the last time you tried it.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

how did you survive the last 15 years of mmos since most if not all mmos were tab target?

 Because prior to GW2 there was no Triple-A title that used an action type combat where positioning mattered.  Hence the reason why I find great enjoyment in this new fangled MMO experiment and sadly something I don't see me giving up any time soon.  Luckily the Action Combat mechanic is going to thrive with games like Wildstar and TESO.  Whether I play those or not remains to be seen, only a romp through a beta will tell me.  Much like this romp through FFXIV told me I won't be playing it.

maybe its the silence? when interacting with npc , wont even say cliche well hello there or something just pops up a bubble what you then need to skip away. 

 

i have been trying it aswell now and i still dont know if i like FF serie as MMO. i really liked ff8 played it alot back in the days but this one.. i already feel like i just let it be and move on. we will see when i got some more time to test it.

We can only show them the path, but they have to be the ones to take it.

A lot of people dont like it. It wont fail as hard as version 1 though, but they wont get the success they want from it. They should listen to the players instead of trying to defend their bad decisions through ethical and emotional arguments.

Boycotting EA. Why? They suck, even moreso since 2008.

I really dislike Asian themed games, I do not, nor will I ever like a bright, vibrant cuddly wuddly environment in my fantasy game,  This was strike 1.  Killing Squirrels abd bunny rabbits was strike 2.

Well, better to leave earlier than later. Sucks though, because you barely even scratched the surface of the game. But I mean, if a game doesn't suit you.. it doesn't suit you. Go with your gut they always say.

I really like the aesthetic. I actually like asian games with their cute rabbits to kill and ligs like that =P But I have a small problem with combat also. yesterday I did 2 dungeons. in both I was basically spamming 1 ability over and over again. Cure since I was a healer. I had to use aoe cure like 3 times. For one I was glad coming back from GW2 how structured the combat was. Everyone had a role and it was easy to see what is going on. On the other hand it actually was quite boring. the real test for me will be the 1st month after release. Will I get bored of the game after few weeks or not...

I'm sure there are people who don't like this game. Some people have higher expectations for the gameplay, and it means a lot to them, and that's okay.

FF:ARR FATE grinding: People not having fun by doing something not actually intended to get to a point that doesn't really matter as fast as possible. Just so they can do the same thing over and over again to gain a piece of virtual loot.

I'm on my 3rd beta weekeend and unfortunatly i find myself playing less and less. Combat is beyond boring and very slow, you pretty much mash the same 2-3 ablities over and over again until the mob dies.

I have decided to do the same, I played it little (and wrote a quick review on this forum last week), this weekend looking forward to starting a'new created a new character, new city, but found 1hour later, thinking im getting bored of clicking..

I find myself not intersted in reading all the crap, Yes having the 'voice-overs' might make a difference, So for me, I wont be saying "im not playing at release" but im less likely this weekend as a i was last

Lets be honest, like any form of media/fun if it doesn't grab you quickly why wait??  In films they reckon first 5-10minutes of film will dictate if you like it, regardless of the film/genre

Games its similar, within first few hours of game play if you have to 'drag' yourself to log in just to "get to the fun" then what is the motivation... and whats saying later on in the game what other people (in this post) says is fun, is fun for you, and you've wasted all them extra hours, So like another poster said, the should of done more in the first 5 levels, make it enjoyable, learn lots of new spells/abilities but at very low/weak level let me see what fun is coming, dont expect me to wait

 

So for me, Like the this guy above, i will wait, I do think there are lots of parts that the Devs have one very well, but i think they have / will regret not doing more work on the first 2hours of gameplay for the casual / possible (non fanboy) player like me

 

This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game :) were of course your welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.

Instead of making a genre suit you, play a genre you like.

I think MMORPG's are not something for you. So look out for the hybrids, most likely the only real thing out of the MMORPG genre you do like is a persistent world and some kind of progression. And lucky for most, that seems to be the way the next gen consoles are going for!

I'd buy that with the combat though it would have been a simple question "hey guys, is this tab targetting or not as I can't do tab targetting anymore"
 

and then I suppose you could take a deep breath and "try".

But the art design has been out since 1.0. All you had to do was look at the hundred or so pictures that are out and realize "ew, that Asian style is not for me".

And heck, as far as "asian style art design" this game is probably the best  as far as keeping everything seemingly from the same world. No bikini armor, the cutsey characters are just cute and not cute mixed with sexy which doesn't quite work.

OP if you don't like asian art style why even try the game? Like it's some big secret that Final Fantasy uses that art style? Only been around since Nintendo.... even the sprites looked like that 8 bit style? It's like walking into a Harley dealership and saying "oh yeah I was looking for a sports car very disappointed with your lack of sports cars"

 

tldr; of course FFXIV has an asian art style dummy.
