Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
MMORPG based on the Final Fantasy Franchise. A very large and involved mmo and alot of fun if ya don't let it get to you.Designed during EQ days its a grinder in the plainest sense, almost everything your forced to group for. While some people love this aspect (people with unlimited freetime) its not for all. It has gotten much more feasible to solo nowadays tho with the addition of new systems and upped xp on weaker mobs. There is a large vet/hardcore player base for you 14+ hr per day types and boss type "nm's" that can take up to 10 days to spawn. There is also campaign battle (large scale battles centered around forts) for more casual types and meriting, and its larger cousin "besieged" where a whole city is being attacked. This game is 99% PvE , with PvP added as an afterthought it seems. This creates some arrogance in the player base imo but there all still lots of great people playing. All an all a fun mmo, 7/10 imo. (note I have yet to participate in the "sea" endgame system , after I do im sure ill have more to add)”
