The December update in a nutshell.
SE seems to have pulled everyone from FFXI to try and save FFXIV... Makes you wonder why did they not just drop ps2 support and make FFXIV graphics FFXI? A 200-300 usd computer can run FFXI now with NO PROBLEMS.
Think about it. Eve online did it, upgraded all their graphics and people loved it. Se just copied all races upgraded graphics and slapped FFXIV to make people pay 12USD+ more for a BRAND NEW 12 YEAR OLD MMO!
