Zam forums are getting more and more pessimistic.. leveling over R20 is a huge huge grind, the few LS players that actually log on daily are slowly leaving the game (Cat, Ash), these forums are barren, and it's just not as fun to play as it was at launch. Am I the only one that thinks this way?
I'm still playing, I just have no consistency because of my wifes current status in her pregnancy. I'll likely be on a lot more in the coming weeks, but right now I have to pick & choose when I can get online to coincide with taking care of the wife & kid.
I wouldn't worry about the game itself, I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon. With the LS...it's a new game, new community, there's very little content to pull people together for. I expect after the first big version update in November, there's going to be a lot of changes for the better, as well as a little surge in LS activity. It takes a while, sometimes months, for LS's to find their niche. Right away, with all the people joining quickly, it was launch and some of those are going to filter out through trial periods.
With Cataclysm around the corner, it's going to be a toss up. Could see more people filter out. But I'm not going anywhere, and as long as there's FFXIV servers active, this LS will be active. It just takes a while for the "mold" to form. Launches are typically rough waters...don't worry. ;)
