I must say, that was a cool promising read.

But first, i want to see a 'good' video of some high level combat in full details of multiple classes.

I don't know how it changed since the first beta, but back then the combat was REAAAAALLY slow and it turned me down big time.

Everything else about the game is definiately to my liking, as long as the speed up the combat somewhat

It's like going from EQ1 to WoW.

3 month beta would be a disaster for them. Like, 1.0 all over again. They can't implement any changes based on the feedback in that time. Release is July 2013 at the EARLIEST at this point. Anything else is them making the same mistake twice.

I can't believe some people are excepting less than a half a year beta.

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.

It's a good read, but until I see an endgame boss battle from the perspective of multiple classes, it's all just fluff to me.

Given of course they haven't worked on it before hand as wel, which I'll make a bet they did a lot of work way before as well.

Agree, BUT i guess we have to wait and see.

Hopefully SE has learn their lesson and most importantly listen to the feedbacks.

It's kinda strange for them to annouce the release date of ARR before Alpha or Beta, not too long ago Yoshida promised they will test as long as it needed to ensure the quality of the game.

This is great news!  I just dipped back into FFXI and this will give me plenty of time to have some fun and explore all the areas I never hit before.

 

I hope they allow for a double subscription as a reduced price like before, that would be perfect!

Are you implying that SE has worked on the game before the beta has begun?

Sounds good, and in contrary to what every other MMO dev ever has done!
