not even playable!

. i just loaded up FFXIV for the first time thinking that the game would be decent now considering they are reinstating subscription fees. I can't even make a decision about the game because it is just completely unplayable.. 3 minutes to load a cut scene, then another 3 minutes to load the world back up after a cut scene.. then another 3 or 4 minutes before all the NPCs load up. im walking into a guild building and seeing absolutely no NPCs.. then after standing here for a few minutes.. the world slowly begins to populate itself. and i yesterday i was getting 30002 server errors every 5 minutes and getting disconnected. STAY AWAY from this game.. its not ready to play yet! The combat is slow and boring.  the loading has been so bad i havnt even had enough of a chance to decide if its a good game or not. i have been playing for 2 days and have nothing to show for it.. 90% of the time was spent loading and reloading and restarting.

    Sounds like your video card can't handle the game. Did you read the minimum requirements?

    The game won't be getting it's new engine, which in theory should make it easier on computers, until 2.0 next year.

    I'm sorry you had a hard time. :(

    Being the best looking mmorpg of all times comes with a price and that is you need a good pc to play it if you can't afford that then stop telling other people to stay away cause you are poor.

    I always loved the FF series and loved everything up to FF12, but was a late starter for FF11 which I could have probably enjoyed ( played for a week or so, hated the interface though ).

    I had high expectations of this game when it came out, but I was disappointed with how it turned out.

    If SE can turn this game around, I could be still interested in it, but I fear you dont get many second chances in the mmorpg genre.

    I'm in a very friendly Linkshell and we always accept new members. If you're looking for a good group of people who play everyday and party together all the time let me know :) The game is fun now and in a month or so the new jobs will be introduced.

    This goes to anyone that fell in love with FFXI and is not in FFXIV at the moment: if you want a game that requires your skills and strategy FFXIV is the game for you, weaponskills and skillchains never looked better.

    Yeah, this game is a lot more graphic intensive than most games out today.

    I would assume it is your computer. I bought the game and tried to DL it on my laptop and it didn't even start. Luckily for me my brother has a good desktop so it wasn't a total loss. With AAA MMORPG's your best bet is not to buy it if your not positive you can run it, or at least ask around first. With other games it is fairly easy to luck out and be able to play regardless of system spec's. Downloaded AoC because i heard it was fun PVP couldn't start that either, and I waited a whole 24 hours for the download too. /facepalm

    "People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People's heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool."
