    A year? Why? Even if the game had terrible bug and worse login issues its a few months wait ... tops. May even get it cheaper.

    I do this with some singleplayer games. I don't wait a year but just as long till price drops and first day DLC and probably even further add ons are included for a much cheaper price. E.g. RTW2 currently is such a candidate. Totally overpriced atm and seems to be buggy too.

    But with MMOs I like the rush at the start. There is not a guide for everything already, lot's of people in the world and so on. Can't help it, sorry. ;)

    Thanks for the replies guys :)

     

    Well, I do own the first version of FF14, Collectors edition in fact lol...

    But I just cant bear to play the game now with all these problems, it will certainly take my hype away and not make me want to give it a "2.0" try.

    So I am just gonna play GW2 which I just started to play last week, and then in a years time I will try FF14 again.

    I am a veteran MMO player and I know that sometimes waiting on a game is the best strategy, or else I lose the interest with all the bugs/problems in the early months.

    I'm going to level slowly and enjoy the ride as it is, on a Japanese server....Lone wolfing it, it's actually quite nice so far. I can't wait to get deeper into the game....It has it's flaws, no doubt...But it's also quite fun for me.

    There are problems. I'm rather disappointed about them. I should know better, especially after 1.0, but I had hoped that in trying to get away from the 1.0 debacle that ARR would have been better executed. The game is much improved, but the server/network problems - yeah.

    That being said:
    The server/network problems aren't good, but the game is still very playable and I highly enjoy it - when you can get in. Maybe the maintenance from today "fixes" it, but I think it more likely we see some improvement, and continued improvement over the next few days/weeks. It isn't anything that I haven't seen in other MMO launches - that's not an excuse to somehow rationalize it, and there are a lot of things S/E could have (and should have) done better in hind sight; but just saying it's not totally atypical or unexpected to see a new game come out of the gate with launch problems.

    There is something about being in a game at launch. Communities form. The economy is new. Not everything has YouTube guides telling you "The Right Way" to do everything. There's a lot of trial and error in everything. It has that new car smell.

    That certainly doesn't last very long.

    Combined with the fact that MMOs are never "done". I can't point to a single MMO out there where it doesn't have it's glitches, it's problems, it's bugs, it's quirks. If you like the game enough, you learn to live with them, and if you don't you won't.

    So you can wait as long as you want to, but that won't really change much. There's only been 1 instance I can think of where a MMO went through a radical overhaul (without a relaunch - since ARR is a total relaunch, and I think you could count DF UW a similar light) such that waiting a period of time resulted in a drastically different gameplay experience from launch, and that was SWG NGE

    Bus is a fun way to go though! Quick, dirty....Think of all that meat and gris they have to peel and pick off the grill! And how many traumatized kids and folks! You easily get +600 points for that!

    I hope it won't take a year to add something to do... And no, I'm not on about end game. And no, I didn't rush to 50 (or whatever level it is - not even looked!).

    What I mean is... It's boring!

    There is too few quests, the lev dailys have a limit of 3 (whoa! loads!!!), and the only 2 options left?

    Grind like a gold farmer or run the gauntlet of Fate chasing!

    Now, while I like the idea of a game lasting more than 2 weeks before max level limit hitting (yes, that meant you GW2!), I don't like the idea that "watching paint dry" is fun, killing 500 of the same mobs tends to get a bit naff after awhile and running around in a zerg looking for Fates? Hell no!

     

    No trials. No tricks. No traps. No EU-RP server. NO THANKS!

    You didnt get so far. fates are only at the beginning,

    Once your 50 u do dungeons,raid,trials to keep you busy.

    Although I read about the login-problems, I downloaded the game because of all the positive things I read, just a few days before the official release. I think the positive reviews where more important for me to give it a try, then the login problems. And I have to be honest: never regretted it. only had one day of problems with getting in the game, but now those problems are fixed, why wait? it's a great game after the initial 15 levels of introduction. After that: great! Did the 4 first dungeons with the duty-finder: 4 smooth runs.

    Played WOW for 6 years, got frustrated with the game and community, never looked back. Still play Rift on a regular basis. But being able to play all the classes on 1 character, even more freedom than the soul-system in Rift. OK, it takes some grinding to level other classes after your main, but I don't mind. Even use the grinding for the other classes to get mats for the awesome craft-system. Don't need alts for all the professions, got them all on my only toon and I don't need the auction house/market. Every profession gathers some mats for other professions. That alone can keep me busy for hours.

    No, don't wait a year playing this game and please give it a chance even if you don't like the first 15 levels. After that the game will open up to you in a way I haven't seen since a very long time.

    Did you miss the whole point where I said "I've not got to max level".

    And what is the point of saying "You didn't get so far"??? The main post WAS the fact that I've NOT gotten so far, and yet I've run out of THINGS to DO. (apart from Fates or grind). So what your saying is.. race to 50 like the rest of them idiots and grind dungeons & raids? Whoa! No thanks!

    Now that that's sorted... I'm still bored, and grinding, so any help/advice (apart from being reminded I'm not 50) would be super! Thanks y'all! ;)

    No trials. No tricks. No traps. No EU-RP server. NO THANKS!

    Im sorry you think that but just fyi Leves regen twice a day every twelve hours so you get 6 a day.  In the long run after playing such games as Aion, GW2, and more the grinding doesn't bother me one single bit so I say lets go I want all of the classes to be 50 and hopefully by the time that is over, even more content will be here and I will get to level up even more clases.

    If you are interested in a game (any, not just FFARR) - it's best to play at launch.

    Why? Well, it's typically the most exciting time to play and you get to see the game grow. It's usually full of people so you get to do the content when it's fresh and all the "best most optimal" styles of play haven't been mapped out on excel sheets and things are still pretty new.

    And you get to level with a large bulk of people which lets you experience the content in full as opposed to the later stages when people are skipping things on their alts and you get the whole scenario like newcomers find in WoW where people ignore the world quests to grind dungeons to cap.

    That's my two cents.

    If he waits for 364 days and then tries it... that would be epic fail. I promised myself that I wouldn't try out Meridian 59 till 20 years after release. I can't wait till December 15th 2015!

    OMG,

    I am in 100% total agreement with you. (Has that happened before?)

    I don't know about a year but I will wait at least until people hit end game and have a month or two to work through that.  At that point the truth as to whether there is any longevity will come out. Not really looking for another GW2.

    I'm thinking about giving this game a try, but I have a few concerns.  One is the 3 second gcd.  This doesn't make combat feel a little sluggish?  I feel like it'd be a little harder for a player's skill to shine when you only have to worry about pressing a button every 3 seconds.  I'd most likely either tank or heal if I did play, I haven't decided yet.  Are there dungeon queues?  If so, do you get groups faster as a tank or healer than a dps?  Thanks
