You don't have to have 10 alts - you can create one character if you want and just skill up anything and everything! Just switch weapons and you switch combat/crafting profs in a flash...including gear for each. (I have wanted this is a AAA MMO since I've been playing). I did play Darkfall Online which had that kind of setup but the grind was terrible.

Joking right? :-)

 

Game engine rocks and is smooth and the environment is one of the most beautiful I've seen - weather...lighting you name it. The detail is spectacular across the board - from avatars to animals to landscape to buildings...etc.

Here however I agree fully with you. No matter how many players in same location lag is very minimal or none at all. We have real night/day feeling, weather conditions, .... Best part of game for sure. Imo of course.

One big surprise to me (I'm new to FF) is the story...I find myself really getting into the story. Some cut scenes even have vocals and the voice acting is very well done. Some of the stuff is cutesy but not overdone.

To me ... one of the worst. Silly bubble sistem instead being presented with whole text, one must click and click ... and click ... just to get over boring text (in garbage english normal people do not understand, so i do not even bother to read many times that garbage). And what is also bad idea ... impossible to cancel in middle of dialog to start over ... must again click and click and click ... to get to bottom. Boring as hell and kills any wish to read. As i can see others they do nearly same as me .. just skip all to end.

About voices ... after played swtor any other is just bad, plainly bad. Here all npc's are obviously mute. It feels terible. I'm missing at least some "Hi, friend". But no, just mute.

Now...it's still early on but after playing so many MMO's - and I swore up and down after Star Wars The Old Republic that I was NOT going to buy another game at launch - but I'm glad I did) I can safely give this one a BIG thumbs up!

 

Swtor is my no1, followed by wow. Then ... void for long time.

I'm a HUGE Star Wars fan (no I'm not fat - just a "big fan" hehe) I  really wanted to like SWTOR...I really did. I was in beta...bought 2 Deluxe Editions (one for my wife) but the lifeless terrain...poor server performance issues, combat imbalance and lack of any meaningful crafting made it impossible. The cut scenes were well done but the rest of the game was a "void" in my opinion. 

FF AAB has renewed that "can't wait to wake up and play" feeling...something I haven't had since SWG - my void has lasted way too long. I mean...I'm literally overwhelmed at what to do 1st - the crafting alone will take a LONG time to master. And - the next patch will feature personal estates and instanced neighborhoods - something a lot of people are really looking forward to.

For anyone interested in playing - don't rush to 50 and miss out on the excellent class story...despite not being voiced for every scene - the story is engaging and makes you feel more like a part of the wonderful world they've created.

 

Currently playing SWTOR and it's MUCH better than it was at launch.

THIS!

Its been, well since FF11( ok SWtor was good too), that a story has kept me intrested enough that im not spamming the ESC button, or dialogue. yes you can get to 50 real quick. but again if you mix it up with crafting and other activites its just more fulfilling..well at least for me :) everyones got different play style :)

Having a lot of fun in the game as well.  It has an appealing quality.  The quality of immersion in this game is the best that I've experienced since SWG.  Yes, it does feature a slower pace than many of the newer MMORPG releases, but in my book that is a good thing.  It has a relaxed pace about it.  It also has depth.  Perhaps too much of it as at the moment I am feeling a bit overwhelmed as to what I should work on, on a daily basis.  If there is one thing I would suggest to players just beginning, do not bite off more than you can chew because it can get overwhelming.  Particularly if one picks up too many crafting professions at the same time.  I'm not one to stick with a game for very long, but this one has the potential to hold my interest.  The fact that my girlfriend is loving it is a plus.  Overall, it's been a very enjoyable ride so far.

Prettying-up wrong by dressing it up as opinion does not negate the fact that it is still wrong.

I'm altholic so never rush to end game. :-) Leveled so far with great joy as I last checked 13 classes out of 16 to max and for sure all unique class stories. Never enjoyed so much combat in any game, environment (ok, they could add day/night cycle and weather conditions), ... I find comparable only wow here.

Wait...are you referring to SWTOR or FF ARR because FF ARR has some of the best weather conditions of any game I've played (the thunderstorms in South Shroud almost seem real) and there's night and day in all the regions.

You could've just simplified that entire text into "I don't like reading" and save us all time. The writing in the game is notably better than average. I admit that the lack of voice-over for some of the dialogue is off-putting, but just because you're too lazy to read doesn't mean the writing is garbage.

I played in a couple of the betas and really wanted to like the game, but a couple of things have steered me away from it.  First of all, the story line is pretty weak.  This in my own personal opinion, of course, but I expected better from a Final Fantasy game.  I'm sure it gets better the further into the game you go, but it was pretty weak through the first 20 or so levels IMO.  

Second, the cut scenes without actual voice-overs were really off-putting.  Actually, they were downright creepy.  Not sure what they were thinking when they decided to make them that way, but it was a bad decision.  If you aren't going to add at least some voiceovers to your cut scenes, then maybe it's best to not have so many of those cut scenes in the game.  And the intro to the game...what the hell were they thinking?  A 15 minute carriage ride conversation with no sound before I could even get into the game?  C'mon...

I probably could have looked past the first two things if not for the weak combat, small, claustrophobic zones, and poor map design.  All of these things added together were a big turn-off to me.  Which is too bad, too, because the crafting system and multi-class system are terrific and should be duplicated in more games.   The game just had too many other faults IMO to consider purchasing.

I'm having tons of fun as well. I'm a 34 BLM/THM, 15 Archer, 7 CNJ, 14 Fisher, 15 Botanist, and 7 Carpenter. 82 hours played. I've been doing a little bit of everything, and taking my time and enjoying the journey. 

 

I just downed story-mode Titan, and man, does that guy have an awesome theme or what!? That was a seriously fun fight (as was Aiatar in Brayflox's Longstop).

 

It has been one of two MMO's to have pulled me straight in in the last decade (the other being Rift, which seems to be a love it or hate thing with people). With housing, PvP, Chocobo breeding, Chocobo racing, etc. etc. etc. coming in the near-ish future, it's only likely to pull me in even further.

 

We'll see how it goes 3 months down the line.

Trust, but verify.

Rift was a better launch and a better game. Also, Rift is open world unlike the instanced mania that is FFXIV. FFXIV is a solid game, but not the best MMO launch "in years". That one goes to Rift.

I think the story line is great and, albeit, I've had some issues with the game, however, I believe in SE and think they will continue to add content and build this game into something special. I'm in it for the long haul, there is nothing else out there with the same devotion this game has. Give it some fucking time. E Gad!

So glad to see that so many have found a game that they truly enjoy :)

 

Just remember to stay CONSTRUCTIVE with your criticism on the forums, be open-minded to the game's direction, try not to get bogged down on any flaws, and HAVE FUN.

 

Play on :)

Swtor is my no1, followed by wow. Then ... void for long time.

I'm a HUGE Star Wars fan (no I'm not fat - just a "big fan" hehe) I  really wanted to like SWTOR...I really did. I was in beta...bought 2 Deluxe Editions (one for my wife) but the lifeless terrain...poor server performance issues, combat imbalance and lack of any meaningful crafting made it impossible. The cut scenes were well done but the rest of the game was a "void" in my opinion. 

FF AAB has renewed that "can't wait to wake up and play" feeling...something I haven't had since SWG - my void has lasted way too long. I mean...I'm literally overwhelmed at what to do 1st - the crafting alone will take a LONG time to master. And - the next patch will feature personal estates and instanced neighborhoods - something a lot of people are really looking forward to.

For anyone interested in playing - don't rush to 50 and miss out on the excellent class story...despite not being voiced for every scene - the story is engaging and makes you feel more like a part of the wonderful world they've created.

 

I'm altholic so never rush to end game. :-) Leveled so far with great joy as I last checked 13 classes out of 16 to max and for sure all unique class stories. Never enjoyed so much combat in any game, environment (ok, they could add day/night cycle and weather conditions), ... I find comparable only wow here.

Wait...are you referring to SWTOR or FF ARR because FF ARR has some of the best weather conditions of any game I've played (the thunderstorms in South Shroud almost seem real) and there's night and day in all the regions.

 

No, you got me wrong, I was COMPLAINING about that matter in Swtor. Weather, day/night, ... are weak point of swtor and best ever in FF.
