    This game is still even alive?

    Holy hell is it bad. I don't think they're gonna like the playerbase drop when people actually have to pay monthly for it.

    Aside for addressing the obvious issue that the game sucks, and people weren't that into it even when it was non-paid service (I even watched FFXIV account sales for a bit a few months ago when a Pay to Play transition was announced (but no prices or specifics) very little profit was made even when the accounts had thoroughly developed characters)..

    ...The bulk sub rates are quite reasonable. $4.99/mo puts it at the same price I paid for my Phantasy Star Universe sub before Sega pulled the plug on PC/PS2 PSU service.
    Still not too interested in the initial investment given that the game sucks. If you could transition from free trial to subscriber without a full retail license, I might be susceptible XD

    If I had a decent PC, I would.

    It looks better than it did when it first started and people are liking it a lot more now. Stop judging?

    There were a lot of things wrong with the game, but the biggest was the core combat gameplay.
    I highly, highly doubt they changed it, or changed it enough to make it even passable.

    Devante from TheNakama on Valefor in FF11 here (try saying that 3 times fast).

    All of us from Nakama were excited to rejoin for FF14. Once we got there, we realized the game was still in almost early alpha mode!
    Now it's more like beta but still, to charge for people using it as beta.

    Then again, it's more or less what FF11 was like when it first started out and FF11 turned out to be the best MMO I've ever played (I've tried almost all of them).

    I understand also that they can't leave it free forever.
