Why is it that if you do NOT agree with the Hype and say so, your Tolling?

I hate the Game, I don't hope or wish it to fail. Not at all. I wish it Success. I also don't want people to buy into the hype about this game. It's Slow paced, Boring, and Not much better than the original release that was a Complete Failed Attempt of a MMO.

 I WANT people to download the Open beta to see for themselves.

Why someone would make at thread after a couple hours just to bash the game is beyond me. You have a lot of growing up to do.

To balance out his whining I'd like to say I'm in love with the game.

This game isn't instant action in the first few levels no mmo has you go straight into battle and have an insane battle how slow are some of you guys?

Yes the intro is meh not much appealing and the first lvls make you fight weak little enemys you expect to fight a giant dragon at the first 10 levels?

This game is for final fantasy fans it kicks out all the other players that have no clue what final fantasy is. The game right now is swarming with players probably a million or so and my server is full to many players in ever zone. They had to make 2 extra servers for the extra players that were trying to make characters.


Yes it like a chore going to each quest but once you hit the dungeon and ifrit that where it gets really fun. You can troll cry but this game won't fail there are a lot of players already leveling up their 2nd-3rd class to level 20.

They could have made the intro more appealing but other then that the game is perfectly fine if you expect this game to be instant action then this game is not for you go play vindicus if you want insane action.

Really? haha I enjoyed it, Guildwars 2 for me was the worst first 2 hours i've played in an MMo in years... which honestly is a bit harsh to say anything though I assume how I felt with it seems to be the same you felt. I honestly am having a blast with the game more then I expected to the point it might be more then just a one month time waster I originally expected.

 Remember now, he played the game for 20 minutes he probably only has like 2000 gil.

Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

Then I played it, and I have to agree it is the worst introduction to an MMO I've ever experienced. The length of the intro is so long, I just couldn't make it to even one combat before quitting (gave it about 20 mins before giving up).


The quests you do actually do are fetch quests and forced town exploration quests. 20+ mins and I never got to use an ability.


Astonishingly bad. 0/10 initial score, but I'll bump it to 2/10 for the detail in the player character models.

Really? 20 minutes? Thats it? So you never got past level 1? How can you judge it then? Stop trolling and go home and stay off these forums if it's so bad.

And then after that god-awful introduction you have to kill what? Squirrels.  The combat is horrendusly slow thanks to its 2.5 gcd, and the quest are laughable. I'm 100% sure this game will fail just like all the WoW themepark copy's (Warhammer, LOTRO, AOC, SWTOR) the only difference is this game has much less hype than those games did. I really had alot of hope in this game and its first impressions just shot me to the ground. Archeage BETTER deliver.

Ah, it's not that bad.  I actually think is does everything well except combat (that's a pretty huge deal though).  It could use voiceovers a little more liberally too on the "main" quests.

But My conjurer has been using the same god damn two spells for 20 fucking levels.  That's pretty shit design and there isn't any getting around it.

My conjurer has 8 at level 18.

Level 1 - Stone
Level 2 - Cure
Level 4 - Aero
Level 6 - Cleric Stance
Level 8 - Protect
Level 10 - Medica
Level 12 - Raise
Level 18 - Esuna
Level 22 - Stone II

So exactly how do you have only 2 skills as a conjurer?

Oh wait, your being a troll and do not know what the hell you are talking about.

This is not the last hope, WIldstar is out there still and trust me.. It WILL DELIEVER.  Trust me...

Wildstar is a pipe dream WoW clone it brings nothing too the table accept player instanced housing

LOL I find it very amusing when someone calls any MMO a WoW clone, WoW is the biggest ripoff in MMO history.

It took various aspects of about half a dozen different successful MMOs that came before it (most notably Everquest & Ultima online) and fused them together into a single game, then dumbed everything down to draw in the casuals. Too many little kids these days that first got into MMOs with WoW and assume that it invented online gaming.

For those who do not know, WoW launched in 2005, the first modern style MMO launched in 1997, and there were hundreds of others prior to WoW. Nothing can be considered a WoW clone as WoW wasn't original in any way.

Just like every other title out there. It has its fans. I'm sure those who rush through or don't take their time with it will most definitely not enjoy it. Just like any other Final Fantasy game, where skipping stories and other parts that help immerse you in the world would hurt your enjoyment of it. I feel as though it's unlike other titles where you could play along and not have one iota of a clue what the hell is going on and not really care. As long as a certain Pavlovian condition is met. Loot that keeps being handed out as if it were falling from a piñata.
 The whole FF series has alot mroe meaning to its hardcore fans than it does to those outside of it......I never really got into any of them and to me their games just aren't very good, but I cna see how it might appeal to some.

Well I guess thats why Final Fantasy VII is the #1 sold rpg to date and has sat at RPG's #1 for 16 years. But I guess that does not count right? Oh and to this date Final Fantasy still hold #1 for best RPG and Story. Go look at any list and what is the #1 RPG of all time? Thats Right, Final Fantasy VII. Suck on that!

2.5 GCD is extremely fast for Final Fantasy...try get basic attack speeds of 4+ seconds somtimes, and you get weapon skills to use once every few minutes XD

The goal of every subscription based game. Alienate an entire group of people. Brilliant! No wonder this game has already failed once before.

Well, I have 2 opinions.

1. I played in the original, and in the ARR betas and i have to say i didnt enjoy what little time i played in them. There was no grand scale to things imo. killing all sorts of critters wasn't appealing nor was it very final fantasy in nature. If it wasn't called "final fantasy" then i can see very little resemblance to series.

I'm not gona go bash this game, Im just gona say there wasn't enough appeal for this final fantasy fan to continue playing.

2. I think its really funny that the original was shunned universally because it wasn't wow enough only to be fully "wowified" in ARR and still shunned lol. Cant win with "gamers" these days

You must realize that the combat is going to speed up later on. In the beginning of all MMOs the combat is a lot slower.

I'm not sure that I'd say "terrible."  It's not what I really want since I prefer grouping and challenge at all levels and could live without 95% of the game being mindless solo ez-mode.  I don't believe in the "just get to the real game at endgame" mantra - to me that's a weak excuse for having most of the game be a waste of time and space.


Obviously a lot of people like horribly designed MMORPGs that are doomed to fail.  Because companies keep on cranking them out!


I do agree that this game will go the same way as the post WoW clones.  It's going to be SWTOR 2.0.  Hyped.  Nice release day numbers.  Too much emphasis on solo.  Not enough endgame at release.  Way too ultra easy.  Vets will cap out in a week or less.  Casuals will cap out in a month or less.  A smidge more time destroying whatever endgame exists.  Done.  3-6 months max before pops diminish dramatically.  6-12 months and a bunch of server merges til they throw in the towel and it's F2P.


Hope I'm wrong but all signs point to this.


There is no way a game this stupidly easy with such a ridiculously fast leveling curve, with pvp and some endgame known to be getting patched in (3 months?) after release (meaning nobody knows if there even IS any endgame to speak of), and that is completely in the mold of post WoW failures (failures to maintain subscribers or to stay sub-based) is going to live up to the producer's fantasies of providing years of sub-based entertainment.  It hasn't worked so far and it's not going to magically work this time either.


All the players hailing this game as being the greatest thing ever will be amongst the first to be bored and gone - shortly after they finish the solo ez-mode and dabble in grouping a little.  Just like always.  They're the people killing the genre and pushing devs to make yet more solo ez-mode content...because massively multiplayer is all about....soloing with a hundred doods with crappy avatar namess running around naked - that's quality!  That's how you build a game to LAST.


Why devs keep designing this style of game, or worse, sliding it even more towards ultra dumb and fast food speed, defies all logic.  They must be thinking, no, no, WE can do ultra dumbed down solo ez-mode better than anyone else and people will stick around after they obliterate in a few hours the content that took us 3-4 years and tens of millions of dollars to develop.  Yeah, we got this!


Programming is all about logic.  Most designers have SOME programming background.  How does this keep happening?


Premium MMORPGs do not feature built-in cheating via cash for gold pay 2 win. PLAY to win or don't play.
