So, I thought I would give WoW a little break and try something different. I google and see the Final Fantasy 14 is supposed to be good… And right of the bat - typing 'final fantasy 14" or “ffxiv” is cumbersome and makes googling things horrendous. For WoW all I have to type is “Problem/Question WOW” and boom.
And this is why I am making this post.
The QoL Blizzard and Activision has put into their Account Management/Creation is LEAGUES above even their closest competitor. I mean honestly, have you dealt with this Square Enix website? Account creation and management is a nightmare… I have a million things to say about that.
The game itself.
The graphics are supposed to be "much better than WoW, but the fluidity is crap. Like literal trash… and maybe it’s me, but the whole anime graphics things is not what I consider to be high quality.
I know WoW is not polished, but holy hell. The majority of this Final Fantasy 14 (I have the name copied and pasted at this point) game is not voice acted, the cut scenes look like they were created by a developer who graduated with a 1.7gpa from DeVry…
Look, I’m not WoW fanboi, I have a TON of issues with the game’s philosophy and the like… but after this experience, I can AT LEAST say, there is SOME emphasis put into the game and user experience.
I can’t post links here, but if you’re interested, take a look at FFXIV’s (Square Enix) account page. It looks like something out of 2002 Compaq computer.
Yeah,… I just can’t see myself dealing with the logistical headache of a company who doesn’t even see the need/value in creating a responsive, intuitive, user experience for their customers.
If it were F2P, I could kinda understand, but you charge just as much as WoW does and have more players. /mindblown
