OP  7/21/13 3:44:55 PM#1

The third beta phase for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is in the books now and players who've taken part are having to wait for the commencement of beta 4 to re-enter the game. We've got a beta 3 wrap report to share that you won't want to miss if you're keen to know more about the upcoming relaunch of the game. Read more before leaving your thoughts in the comments.

The FFXIV:ARR beta has been one of the more pleasant betas I have experienced.  The stability of the game has been quite good.  The systems made available to players are very well done.  There are very few placeholder systems in place and the ones that exist are often there to keep the story fresh for launch.

Really looking forward to this. Thanks to the Steam sale I should be able to keep myself occupied until Open Beta :)

if we were in beta 3, does this mean we will automatically have access to beta 4?

This game is absolutely more of the same.  Just not looking for that.

So many people complain about "boring combat" or "more of the same" but when games change it up, they just bitch about that too. I'm just looking for fun and FFXIV:ARR is very fun. I agree about it being after the letter on the 8th though.

Thats subjective though Arskaaa, at level 20 I found myself with plenty to do in combat, some people like it some don't.  I enjoyed it.

Not boring combat, just not Action RPG, i am tired for every Action RPG player to come Tab-target MMORPG to expose how bored combat it is. This is not Tera and is not GW2, and i am thankfull for that.

 

There are a lot of Street Fighter Mortal Kombat Tekken MMORPG games. Rolling in the floor like a gimnastic with a Full Plate Armor, or Tanking in bikini.

Can't seem to understand why when someone says the combat isn't enjoyable everyone's initial reaction is "THIS IS NOT TERA"... It doesn't have to be... I love Action MMORPGs... But I still love games like DBO, and Rift. I for one am able to ignore aspects of a game if as a whole I enjoy it. And I will most definitely admit, Combat is not enjoyable it's boring. It's just a tool for me to move forward. Rift one the other which is not an action MMORPG has very enjoyable combat and it gets me really engage unlike FF ARR on another hand I love the crafting in this game so much fun :D

My Two Cents, My Opinion

I enjoyed combat on my level 50 Monk... I will say combat is slightly boring from 1-10 ... but once I switched to my level 50 legacy character I had a blast. I actually was overwhelmed by the choices I had.... especially with combos.

I experienced almost the same exact things and I agree completely.

As a THM my job is always crowd control. First thing I do is sleep anything that can be slept while continuing to bomb the tanks target while watching for slept mobs to wake. Simple as that.

 

I once saw another THM after being told not to spend their whole time in the trenches alternating between Fire II and Blizzard II (both AoE's). I explained once about waking up slept mobs but since it was an early dungeon I didn't press the issue any more. Most parties I ended up in turned out to be great, but this one was a little more stressful do to the lack of hate control.

 

The game needs to be simple early on. The example above wasn't that big of a deal since the dungeon was early and easy. If the same thing played out and caused the party to wipe multiple times that same person could have gotten their feelings hurt.

 

I can't wait for P4 to open up. I have tried playing Rift and Tera with Final Fantasy music in the background. It's nowhere near as good but it does make those games more tolerable =)

My guess is also Aug 9th.

Yay beta 4 :)

 

As for combat, I don't like action combat, it always is so repetative, just stand there with your mouse button held down, pushing buttons 1-4.  At least in tab targeting you have to target your skills and you end up using more than just 4 buttons.

What the heck are you even talking about? FFXIV has some of the most tactical combat mechanics I've ever encountered in an MMO.

It would probably be because almost everyone that starts the combat isn't enjoyable statements immediately starts comparisons to GW2, TSW,Tera, Neverwinter  or some similar trash.

As we all know enjoyment is subjective and I enjoy it. In some ways its like a nice and plain old sorely missed glass of water. Nothing too fancy and does what it supposed to just fine.

If the action combat guys don't like it they can keep ramming red bulls down their throats till their kidneys are mush and scream "I am having a great time" whilst doing it.

Can't wait for beta 4

Haha, well put!

Even though I don't like FFXIV, it's not really about the combat. It's decent enough for me.
