Tell me how this is not going to be more of the same?

     

     

     

     

    Why would anyone want to convince you with that attitude, it's going to be more of the same.

    This is what I've never understood...

     

    You would consider not playing a game because other people can play it more than you and advance faster ? Why would it matter if it took 500 hours to reach end-game ? That's one of the major problems in games now since 2004 (eq2/wow). Endgame is "the game" and everything before is just prepping you for it..you should take the time to enjoy the whole game.

    It's only $30. Even if you end up disliking it probably still get your monies worth.

    If this becomes B2P, I will buy it in a heartbeat, but if it remains S2P, probably not.

    Since when is Tuesday a direction?

    I dont think he cares about time to level. The problem with most Asian MMOs is the grind. Anyone who played FFXI (or like me, fell asleep watching a friend play) remembers forming groups, picking a spot on the map, and having one of the teamates pull mobs to the group to kill repeatedly for hours on end. That was pretty much how people leveled in FFXI, atleast back then. Its mind numbing and boring to most players who want quest and objectives to mask the grind, and it makes a huge difference, believe it or not. I personally couldnt take more than a few days of that and can definitely relate with OPs concern after playing games like CoH, FFXI, and more recently, Aion. I wouldnt care if it took 3 years to reach end game so long as the game has the content (quests, story, dungeons, etc) to back it up and keep things fresh.

    To answer you OP. No this game isnt a grinder. Obviously no one has reached end game but from what im hearing there is enough content to level about 2 classes/jobs and they plan to add more later. Obviously you will eventually grind mobs, FATES and dungeons on your 4th+ class but on the other hand you can always just go the traditional route and roll alts.

    Crafting looks like itll be a bit grindy, but thats mostly since its more involved by design. Honestly though .. when hasnt leveling crafting/gathering been grindy?

    No one can can or should convince you to play any game.  Do your own research from the abundance of information available to you.  Also, if you can, try the Beta out before you purchase the game.  You know what you like to play more than anyone else does so take control of your inner-gamer and make your own decision.

    Okay, let me just roll up my sleeves and spend a bunch of my time convincing someone else who doesn't want to do the work themselves  that they should play a particular computer game.

     

    I don't think so..

    It is a game of a franchise with strong western roots. Every game since the 6th has been released in the West. It is faithful to the series' past.

    It is not out-sourced to some western publisher a year after the official launch and then left to rot.

    I won't convince you though. If you want to find the signs of "ur typical asian mmo", then you will most likely find them, whether it's true or not.

    Too bad for you.

    If you need to be convinced don't buy it or simply try the open beta coming up in a few weeks.

    If you like very linear games that only have one way to progress in the game and you don't even need to ask friends or open a web browser to find the way then FFXIV is for you. FFXIV is another run of the mill theme park mmo that is nothing like the game that came before it and has learned nothing from it other then to copy whatever else is doing to cash in for a few months to a year. Then again FFXI was a straight rip off the classic EQ model and now FFXIV is a straight rip off the wow model.

    Very linear game with one way to progress?

     

    Without restarting, or rolling an "alt" a player in FFXIV can:

     

    Play every single class

    Play every job

    Level any crafting or gathering profession

    Level using small party dungeons, guildhests, guildleves, sidequests, hunting log, or FATEs

    Join all the Grand Companies and do all of their quests, obtain all of their gear

    PvP to gain all PvP abilities for all classes, all PvP armor sets, and all GC specific PvP abilities

    Do every quest available in the entire game

    Defeat every encounter/mob available, and obtain all items.

    Play any level content anytime they want with level synch.

     

    In short there is nothing someone is ever kept by the game from doing if they want to switch focus or paths.

     

    It is true that for example it doesn't have a dungeon/player-based content creator, and it isn't a sandbox.  I don't know how anyone could get that impression.  But as far as RPG's go there are much more linear games out there, and this one allows quite a bit of freedom for people to enjoy it how they want.

    Everything you just said is also in WoW and WoW is known as one of the most linear mmos to ever come out. Themepark games like EQ and FFXI were not as linear because you were dropped in the world without any idea on what to do next or how to progress (you found this out on your own or from friends not from the ingame help windows).

    The disturbing part so far is that a majority of the NPCs can't possibly be more than eight years old. Even the lassie who signed me up for the adventurer's guild, and said she enjoyed gossip about me and my ladies, can't possibly have turned nine yet.

    I knew this kind of content was hidden in the dark corners of the internet, but it is as I said disturbing to see it in a main stream comp game....

    Its a pretty game.

     

    That's all it has going for it in my opinion. Feels like Tera only a little more grown up. Quests are a bore and feel pointless. Combat is point and click. Its a very typical Asian MMO. If you like them you will like this game. I find it boring.

    If you need other people to convince you to play a game - there is apparently a little voice in your head saying "nope". Listen to the little voice - I don't care how good the game may be for other people - you don't seem to see it as good. Or you wouldn't need the fans of the game to convince you. Just my opinion. (For the record i've never played it and have no opinion of it - just seems you are off on it).

    We don't get paid to sell you on a game, and don't give a damn if you play it or not.
