But sadly, I just felt like FFXIV went at a snaaaails paaaace in just about every single aspect of it. Combat had a 2.5 second GCD on almost every skill, gathering and crafting is too much RNG, and questing to level was monotonous and tedious. I never felt any sort of challenge from FFXIV, and I don't feel like boring myself from level 42-50 just to play the endgame content. I don't like playing games where it's tantamount to eating a bag of dry oats just to get to the sugar at the bottom.
So i won't be subbing.
