A lot of new information about the game via a pre-release meeting. This game is turning out to be something amazing... (sorry joe, the exp limit is still there).

http://www.ffxivcore.com/topic/17035-fi ... -coverage/

Also, here's a video explaining the fatigue system for those who still don't understand it.

That's a good update list, but it would be nice to have seen some of the fixes in beta rather than a "we'll keep working on it" promise.

Will everyone still be playing on Lindblum and are there any plans for a LS?

Sankaku Complex wrote:Square Enix’s bizarre decision to rename “Chocobos” to “horsebirds” for the Japanese version of Final Fantasy XIV has given rise to a storm of criticism and a grovelling and unconvincing apology from the designers.
Sankaku Complex wrote:Soon suspicious users began to connect these changes with another major design change – the highly controversial “fatigue system,” which imposes severe penalties for players who play too long, as Square Enix sees it.
In fact, Chinese law requires all MMORPGs to have just such a “fatigue” system, in order to “protect” players from the addictive properties of these games.

Well the fatigue system isn't going to go away and I don't play the japanese version so all this doesn't mean much to me

It's weird that I was pretty excited for this game and they've managed to destroy it before it was even fucking released.

Fuck you Square Enix.

I cancelled my pre-order and got most of my co-workers to do so as well. 1 of them is hard core and still kept his and is playing now. He hates it already because he hit the time cap and is now experiencing the fatigue system like I told him there was going to be. He is pissed lol.

His exact words were: "If I wanted to play a fking casual game Id play WoW. God damn stupid mtherfkers."

And I stayed 80 dollars richer ;)

I'm still playing, on Gilgamesh server at the moment. Better than 1.0, and it feels better than beta phase 2.

Okay, played for about 3.5 hours today and got to Level 10! They fixed a LOT of issues with the first release of FF XIV from my little time spent with it. The game's addictive and doesn't penalize you for playing too long (as far as I know!) I was able to find- and complete- quests with minimal trouble. Only need some friends to play this with and I'd be set -u- Don't know if I'd pay a subscription to play it though...
