Am i the only one here who didnt think XIV was that bad? i mean there were a lot of poorly implemented features, but i was able to get around it. It definitely needed work to be done, but i still think it was a better game than old republic...
How long did you play and when did you start playing? I started in April 2012 and loved it. I could see some stuff that needed tweaking but overall I liked it a lot. I don't think however, anyone playing from year one would agree that the last few months make up for 1.5 years of horrible game play. That's what I'm getting anyway.
I started from day 1 and played for about a year, and then off and on after that. I simply didnt have as much time later on due to having a gf. I didnt really try out the last few months of 1.0. I think i updated and played about 2 hours worth, so i didnt get to explore any content. From what i've seen and read, it wasnt much of an upgrade and people were still leaving left and right.
