The feedback on the game from the beta testers has been that its terribad so i just skipped it ( they basically say that square was stubburn in implementing systems that dont work).
After the turd that was FFXIII i sure aint giving square a fair chance anymore.

It'S TERRIBLE! you will want to shoot your hand so you can't play it anymore. I gave it a chance and I hate MMOs, I'm still trying to find one that I would like.

I'm guessing Guild Wars 2 will suit you well spider. You should check it out.

Must confess im curious to hear your impressions on the game darren. I'm yet to hear one good impression on it.

gw2 is alot different from the first one. The game isnt out yet, only next year.

You really should check out the official website. For example one of the changes is that they dont have any quests. Instead they have events that happen in real time ad everyone can join on the fly and whose outcome impacts the world. Another big change is that theres no more healer class and basically the whole skill system has been revamped.

I heard they improved some lag issues and keyboard issues when the game officially launched. But according to some reviewers, the game is still not good for people new to MMO's and that FFXIV is still very time consuming to get anything of significance done. Very hard MMO to get into they also said.

I saw some footage of a guy trying to lvl blacksmithing to craft a certain weapon and it took him days just to lvl up the skill. And i mean the skill not the mats. It seems like its just like FFXI was and you stand there like holding a crystal and waiting a ridiculous ammount of time to see if anything happens.
As FFXI in its day though, visually the game looked nice.

I spent a ton of time with beta and have dropped too many hours in just about every mmo released, this game was pure shit. The game was built entirely around crafting and grinding, it seemed to go out of the way to take the fun out of gaming. Convoluted systems all lacking keyboard shortcuts and requiring a tutorial to figure out make simple processes take what seems like a lifetime to complete. If you have ever played a mmo before you will be screaming at your monitor a couple hours into this borefest....end rant
