Just installed and patched the game again after I learnt my one and only problem had been fixed. Partying is plausible now. And not only that they went too far and apparently made it really productive. So hopefully there is a nerf so its not easy street and there is still time to make friends while in a party. But Im stoked to start playing.
Things I noticed when I logged in again, polite infrequent shouts for parties (we have a population woot woot), people using the recruit function to find parties, I got a sweet active and helpful linkshell within a few shouts.
So I'm thinking the ff11 peeps are still at play in this game ie. one of the best communities i have experienced in an mmo. And I do have hope again that this game might be worth my time.
PS: SE is really pandering to us. They are seriously considering and have done the concept art for: male mithra , female Roegs, another female maybe hylander, and have made mention of two new races dragons and something else mystical in nature.
Now why did the launch have to be rushed and the game sold when it did not have the "expected standards"(I say this lightly because I don't think everything Wow has done is standard setting, far from it, they copied standards from other games and made them easier), nor the innovation to attract and keep customers. That is something that will stick with them for awhile and maybe next time they will think "profit is derived from the sale of a producted that is demanded and enjoyed". SE can't rest on the laurels of the Final Fantasy franchise.
An interesting note I always bring up is: Square made FF11 and envisioned much of the expansion and further developement of FF11, which was a great game. SE has been less then perfect in its application of its latest expansions for that game. And so it might say something for SE as a company; maybe the talent and innovation isn't there. But now that I can party grind and make friends. Ill play it for awhile I think and as a self professed, though recently re-baptized, FF fanboi, I will keep the faith.
hehe my two cents.
