To me it's a huge problem that they're still adjusting basic gameplay mechanics like the battle system...a complete removal of the stamina bar and adding autoattack revamps the game significantly. Of course, I suppose that might be preferable at this point if they still don't know what they want to do with the system they have in place.

After I loved FFXI so much, I had high hopes for the game :( it's really still in bad shape with almost nothing to the world.  I don't know if I'd rather have them try and fix what they have so far, or just do a new project altogether.  I think this instance is one where they prove they shouldn't use the numbers from FF for these games. It should have just been Final Fantasy Online 1 and 2 :(

FFXIV didn't invent hard dungeons.  You want to know why you're still playing for free?  Because even Square Enix knows that their unmitigated piece of shit isn't worth paying for because it has barely any content.

Get out.

makes me wonder if they wont just scrap the ps3 version and focus on the next MMO. though i have heard they may be porting FFXI to vita. wich brings to my next point. though i havent played ff14 i think one of its main problems is that it tried to hard to be different from 11 when 11 was a great game.

You could argue both ways. Some things were too similar to XI and some things were too different from XI. Really, it doesn't matter much at the end of the day because it really just comes down to one thing, which is a lack of vision. They didn't seem to really know what they wanted to do with the game, and I'm not sure they know what to do with it now.

It's OK, the FFXIV crowd will be ultra excited when Square finally adds ridable chocobos to the game.  This would increase the game's content by 20%.

Yeah, it's been free to play for months now, although you'd still need to buy the actual game before you are able to play it, so it's not TOTALLY free.

The collectors edition is $19.99 at my local Gamestop... pretty funny.

I don't think that taunting back like that paints your side of sorts in any more of a favorable light. Just saying.

To make this post not entirely worthless, I'm still loosely following the updates they're doing from time to time and my feelings towards them is generally positive. I do want to give this game another try in the future when it's "ready".

Get out? of what? Ha I bet you couldn't even kill Batraal..pfft. You guys just crack me up. You sit here in your little forum world and bitch and complain and moan....what a pathetic life you guys lead....

Why am I having WoW forum flashbacks reading this?
...
Oh, right...

Although you have to wonder how long the game is going to be in the red. The fact they are still working on it and getting almost no revenue is pretty dangerous.
