The game's pretty fun, but it's too bad I can't play much of it because the world's always full lol. I've heard some players just leave the game running while they're sleeping to avoid the 1017 world's full problem. Smart of them, but SE better address this.

only downside, im stuck on Goblin server. hope it dosent cost much to change worlds in the future, i dont want to play in a world were i know nobody



I set my alarm clock for 5am this morning (PDT) to log in. 3 hours later I was changing zones and got hit with the 90k error. Haven't been able to log in since due to the 2002 server connection issue (this happens after you get hit with the 90k).

Same shit happened yesterday but I was able to get back in by this point. :(



I've been playing this game since last week now (well, whenever I can actually log in) and about the best I can say is it's a competent WoW clone.

There's nothing outright bad about the game and it's entertaining enough, but there's nothing special or memorable about it either. I admit I'm only level 16 at the moment (mainly because I can't log in when I want to) so I haven't experienced everything, but I really don't see a reason to pay a monthly fee for the game once my free trail goes away.

Massive kudos to SE for making FFXIV into something playable and even something decent, but I haven't seen anything that makes me want to pay a monthly fee for this game. I want to pay even less when I just spent the last 10 minutes clicking the screen trying to log in only to eventually be met with the can't populate character list error and have to give up.

-edit-

I'll expand a little-- FFXI was a different MMO.  You set out with a purpose and did that.  The game had its flaws but it did many things to make it stand apart from everything else out there.  That is why it was as successful as it was.

FFXIV tries to be just like WoW with a Final Fantasy flavor.  They aren't doing anything risky and just looked at what every other MMO that tried to be like WoW and copied them.  It's a better game for it, but it's nothing special.  I haven't really had to interact with a single person, I just log on, do quests until I'm bored, and then log out.  In FFXI I had to be social and get help and help people from nearly the get-go.  In FFXIV I might as well be playing a single player game.

I'm enjoying myself for the most part and, again, it is a well done game, but there's no reason to play this over any of the other no monthly fee MMO's out there.

have you not seen the videos I put up? And, I didn't know WoW have Magitek mount blowing stuff up lol. You're Lv16, you're still in the tutorial learning levels of the game.

The Magitek is cool, but at the end of the day it's just a mount.  It was fun watching that but is it really worth the hours you put into the game and the monthly fee?  I doubt it.

A Realm Reborn is a good game, I'm just going to wait until it eventually goes Free to Play to bother wth it.
