Every single change introduced into an MMO is claimed to be that game's DOOOOOOM! by someone.

Fast travel in ANY game sucks. It removes the "travel" portion. Might as well put everyone in a large room with a door to each zone.

Spending half a play session running back and forth between towns gets old real fast too.

Well, I just recently re-tried FE, and for the last time. Having tried it at Launch for some weeks, and three times since then, the latest is the last.

My problem with FE is that the developers just don't seem to care about the quality of their code. Just pumping new features into the already rickety game.

Since I was there at launch, there are a number of defects that I was, if not the first, one of the first to report. And I have the e-mail responses (which they used to send out when they replicated bugs) to show it.

So, what did I find on returning last month? Well, lots and lots of the same software defects were STILL there, after all this time. Here are three :

* When you die, and then run back to your place of death, your Horse is NOT there. The icon for it is there, but your Horse is MIA. You need to actually re-log to once again be able to see your horse.

* There is an escort quest in Zanesville to take a young lady from the bottom of the hill to the town on top. Halfway up the hill, she will take off (without comment or any text in-game) into an enemy base. Now, nothing happens; she just runs into the base and dissapears. If you go to the top of the hill and wait, sometimes she will just re-appear beside you; sometimes she will run up. Sometimes you have to abandon the quest and restart the escort.

* It is not possible to split from BagBank in one step. If you split a stack in the Bank, your cursor will show the split count of items. But if you then drop it into your pack, you get the WHOLE stack of items. In order to transfer a split stack, you have to split it into its original container, THEN transfer to the target container. Sheesh. Means you have one less container slot on both sides. Not good in a game like FE which has a plethora of duplicate use items.

For these reasons, and many, many more, I have given up on FE. Especially after the massive reduction in staff they just did.

To bad, too.
Could have been a great game.

I saw the lack of care for the quality of the code in the game within the first 20 min of play. That's how bad it is.
