    As stated before, this game isn't meant to be a PVP Game, and will never have open world PVP from what I can tell. Frontline is a GC v. GC v. GC Instanced massive arena (Basically three crystal tower raids going at each other to control the area. You have 30 minutes to attack/defend.) It's more of a point capture system like some GW2 SPVP Modes, but way, way, way bigger (Like Wv3.)
    That's dumb I remember specifically yoshida saying that they won't release personal housing because they released FC housing. He's confusing.... Well one thing for sure is I remember him saying that personal housing is much more affordable than the 100m - 60m fc house's. This make me want to go back and look. Still though the sad part the direction still seems like a gear grind for the end game.

    I'd hate to push the game, but it's pretty worth it especially at the price it is now. It's the only game coming out with REAL content on a regular basis. New classes are even coming. Yeah some people might not like it, but it's on of the most played games in the world atm for a reason and is pretty fun once you get into a Free Company (guild). It has a good system going for it, and being ran by SE it'll be up forever and have constant updates because it has such a large budget.

    I'm burnt out on every other game right now, and I play this for my PvE/social fix and some other MOBA's and FPS for PvP fix. PvP as it is now is alright, but with frontlines coming it'll change a lot and actually looks quite fun. They're doing a great job bring us what we want.

    i dare you beat everything easy without other 7 hardcore players ... i dare you beat the upcoming coil brutal ... and the new frontlines addition to pvp will be fun i dont see why grinding same dungeons and raids is bad ... its like every other mmo out there.

    Do I need a creditcard/timecard to redeem the free 30 days? Like with WOW the 30 days you get free, when you buy the game, you need to registar a credit/debit card or a 30/60/90 day timecard with it.

    No. You need a square enix (Not square enix members) account, and that's it.

    I was a geared PVE player within a month when the game was released. I was fighting along with everyone who didn't know how to fight garuda/titan in a week or two with full darklight gears. Then when I was ready to tackle Coil I slowed down and enjoy helping other players.

    2.3's Hunt system will allow you to get Sands and Oils of time without stepping foot in any of the raids:
