Yay group content. Unfortunately all my friends left by November of last year and I've been waiting for a usable grouping mechanism since. Anyone who still plays consistently is rank 50. Those of us who just log in from patch to patch have no chance of actually playing with anyone else.

Anyone else having an issue with skipping? Game ran great on my PC at launch but now, I skip all the time in cities and sometimes on quests?

@The Minn

I've always skipped in the main cities, the rest of the game performs fine though. Cities choppy as hell.

After playing in the beta, and not being an FF fan to begin with, I gave the game a miss at release.
I thought it was a shame because the game 'looked' beautiful - probably one of the best looking games I'd seen.
Is the gameplay now at a level to where picking it up wouldn't be a bad idea?
Or should I wait a bit longer?

@meanieme They made improvements. Nothing drop your jaw amazing though. Still the same game at it's core. So I still don't recommend it. At the pace it is going, I'd say give it another year.

@Tizmah I'd say by 1.20 or 1.21 it should be in a pretty damned good state (1.19 is looking to be awesome with Airships and Chocobos as is).

Hate to say it, but I might be more interested in playing it if it had the same style as the illustration. Reminds me of one of the last Final Fantasy games I TRULY enjoyed, Final Fantasy Tactics. Terrible story, but the the jobs and fighting were great, loved that damn game.

They are bringing back the jobs from the FF series this summer. I am waiting on that.

@(Unverified) Yes, it was a shame they couldn't match their concept art closer.

@Tizmah Most games never match their concept arts beauty.

I mean look at the WoW concept art. If the game looked like those designed, MAN would it be awesome.

@(Unverified) Really? I loved the FFT story too, though I agree with you on it being one of my favourite FFs. Not the last one I enjoyed, I've enjoyed all of them really except XII, but one of the best by far.

Maybe the new art style is a hint at the new direction the game will go.

I'm still hoping for "WoW with Final Fantasy motif" but I'll settle for "Final Fantasy XI HD".

Hey, wow, they're finally starting to implement some of the features that were supposed to be in the game from the start. Another six months and it will be launch ready!

I have to appreciate the way SE just keeps chugging forward. I'm not sure they'll ever be able to recapture a large audience but I appreciate them trying. Really looking forward to some of the upcoming changes.

Is this game ever going to release on PS3?
