I liked 11... I like the art design of Final Fantasy over WoW but WoW's gameplay/ease of use has yet to be beaten IMO

Well said!
WoW also has a huge community of add-on makers, and many of them can be used to really customize the UI, and overall look of the game. Even better, it doesn't breach the EULA, and there are a handful of really useful add-ons.

The other thing that makes WoW appealing is how the quests and leveling flow together. You can easily do quest after quest, each leading you into a chain or a new area where the enemies are around your level. Other MMO's I've played I felt more lost, whereas WoW really tells you where to go for your level.

There is a problem however with WoW's community (as with most Blizzard games). There's really some elitist nazis in there; who aren't afraid to call you out on anything you do wrong (or if it just differs from their opinion). Try playing any of the RTS games and being a noob. You'll get cursed at pretty bad.

Wow really did make their questing system right. I remember playing Everquest and as a noob you should be completely lost. Before later expansions, I remember it being a adventure to just find your way out of town. After a while, knowing what to do made the game fun though. I wasn't a real big fan of FFXI and never got past level 16-18 (I remember spending 6 hours getting a chocobo license). Never figured out how to do chain attacks or burst with my friends either.

FFXIV is going to be 100 times better than 11. If any of you who played 11 in the early stages havent played the new version you missed out. They have revamped a lot of the gameplay to make it more solo friendly. The UI was good as well, no problems there. Im fascinated to see the improvements to 14 over 11.

Fileplanet is giving keys away for their members. I'm currently in south korea so I have to use a proxy because its only for north america. I have 3 lvl 80's priest, mage, rogue and I like to pvp/arena. I don't see that faster pace playability ever in FF's future so that will always be missed but I like the 'other' parts of the game.

I played FFXI for a few years. Still waiting for a beta key, but I've pre-ordered the CE.

I cancelled my collectors edition order with amazon... I just can't go back to the slow paced gaming. If I'm going to do that, then I'm just going to quit MMO's all together. No jump really is something that I noticed a lot I like mindlessly jumping nowhere lol. I don't like not being able to jump off cliffs etc.

I played the beta twice... I think its open beta now but I still haven't cared to turn it back on. I think it sucks. I'm disappointed. Maybe it will be easier to navigate the menu system when it goes RTM.
