AFAIK, servers are still located in Japan. Will they create local US/EU servers? Hated my latency when I played this, 150ms-180ms. The only thing that I didn't like about FFXIV is the UI. Gameplay-wise, it's great and innovative. If 2.0 improves the UI, then I'll definitely come back for this.
[EDIT]: Actually, let's just merge the threads.

Still on the first page. And all over the game's website. /bop
That trailer was beautiful along with the graphics of the game...But I never got into it. I hope this game has some success tho. This is a halfway decent game that deserves a player base. It gets me annoyed when you have crappy generic f2p MMOs with millions of players, and games like this that actually try something different die.
Is there some type of trial? I want to see what the game is like I don't want to walk into the game without knowing if it's truly fit for my taste. I've played FFXI before so I know what that is like but I've never tried FFXIV before.
The markers were originally added because players in other games often tried to stand over NPCs to hide them, making it hard for other players to find them.
Waiting for ingame vids. Would rly like to return to FF XIV.
bored of most mmo out ther enow maybe looking for to return to this awesomely amazing game

Theres a fine line between "hand holding" and convenience. I doubt many people would agree that the old Everquest system of "Just hand crap to an NPC and hope he gives you something back instead of keeping the item" is an adequate quest system either while some may say anything beyond that too is "hand holding".
Some things aren't "hand holding" but simply a matter of convenience. Making a game not frustrating and making a game easy are two very different things.
FF14 was just frustrating to play for me because of those little things. If they haven't made it a little more user friendly then all these changes are pointless.
