You do realize that at level 50 our GCD will be less than 2 seconds right? Oh wait, I bet you are one of those beta testers that doesn't actually read the forums, or report bugs, or do anything worthwhile. You play to test the game for yourself. Tell you what, before you go running your mouth, bad mouthing a game, go read about it. Level 50 will have a much lower GCD, and not only that, it has been discussed by Yoshi himself why the GCD is the way it is. I am not going to explain it to you, go find the developer letter regarding it. Once again see my above post, people bad mouthing the game after playing it for 15 minutes. The game develops itself just like you develop your character, if you want everything handed to you from the get go, don't play this game, if you want an easy leveling experience, no group play, and basically another WoW clone, don't play this game. It essentially brings the Multiplayer, and thinking aspects back to the MMO genre.

by the time your 50 the GCD will be much less than 2.5 because you get gear that lowers the GCD as you progress.

Great review Ryahl. A big step up from your alpha coverage. I really appreciate your indepth take on most of the game elements without the bias of most game columnist. Looking forward to your future articles on FF14 and hope you enjoy open beta.

I liked your article and agree with your points and think this MMO has alot of potential.

With instanced housing and guildhests. I think this game is going to have tons of replay value.

MMORPG Gamers/Developers need a reality check!

As you get up there you'll also find some abilities are off of GCD.

Had a blast in the 2nd Beta, like a lot of people making comments I, too, am trying to play only a little in this 3rd current phase. Can't wait for release, the physical collectors edition look great too.

This game has what newer MMOs for the past 7 years have been missing.  Longevity based on progression systems.  Real simple.  It's why the MMO genre is so popular but people keep thinking it's for other reasons and making short, shallow games that never live up to what they could be because the devs miss the all important aspect of give your players tons of progression options and they will love your game, mix it with awesome graphics and music and a nice UI and controls and people will be happy to pay to play. 

GW2 is an example of a company thinking they had the answers to the ultimate MMO but they missed the most important aspect.  Progression Mechanics via a large number of gameplay options.

Of course, it also helps to have great writing and Square's nack for storytelling.  But that's just the cherry on top.

Expect being relegated to dps role in PUGs and being bullied into playing roles you don't prefer.

This argument is just like arguing politics, to me this class-by-equipment deal is akin to socialism, and not in a good way. 

 

in any other mmos if everyone levels every class thee not unique either

Please don't reference SWTOR combat like it's a good thing. That was the only MMO where I actually hated getting new abilities because they were frustratingly boring and not fun at all. The best part of that game was like the first 10 levels. Then the combat just progressively gets more and more annoying.

Ryahl - Excellent article.

 

I love FFXIV.  I have withdrawl symptoms in between beta phases..... I have found a home.  This is the first time in years where I am not looking forward to any other game.  I could care less what games are being released after FFXIV.

It's alright.

 

It's not good or bad.

It's just a mediocre FF title.

They've been that way for ages.

 

No biggie. I own the original so thus I own this one as well. Doesn't do me any harm any way to see more players on but I'm a long time FF14 player. It's really NOT that much different feeling.

 

It's like most of you ignored it when it first came out, it's pretty much the same game. Only finished. I hear all these options and keep thinking "but...they've pretty much been in the game forever".

 

I know it's new to some of you, but to those of us vets it's just like NGE for starwars.

Nothing at all special has happened that make me think this game isn't mediocre. I'll play it still but frankly it's because all other games are below even mediocre.

"us vets" whoa speak for yourself buddy, comparing ARR to NGE is heresy.  I hope John Smedley haunts your dreams for that.comment.

The more I hear about this reboot the more I get excited about it. I'm going to go pre-order a PS3 copy when I get the chance!

Nobody really knows how well that stat is going to scale at 50. Also, it seems stupid to itemize a stat that completely changes the way the game is played on a mechanical level. The only reason I can think that they would want to do it this way is to ease people unfamiliar with MMO combat into it. As they get more comfortable, the GCD gets lower. That seems stupid as hell to me being that Pong requires more coordination than MMO combat, and I don't think very many players would have a problem with a much shorter (1.0-1.5s) GCD. 

It could also be to make playing the game on consoles easier. 

 

Combat feels very sluggish to me, and a lot of the abilities are pretty uninteresting IMO. It's a pretty game, and I'll level to endgame, but I don't have very high hopes of it becoming something special in my eyes.

I like how people argue the game is out dated because of quests and mechanics... Great so lets go make fun Minecraft, Terraria, Cube World oh and 90% of all Indy games that were beyond successful.

 

This game has a different play style. The only thing that should be up to debate is how polished is it? Is there enough content till end game for 1 class? Is the end game have a end game?

 

That is what you should be talking about not how you want Guild Wars 2 in every mmo...
