While I can't say I think the game will take off that well I do think it will be a success for them at least and while my opinion of the final fantasy series (online included) has not been great.
I do have to give them credit for this, A true example of a dev actually listening the correct way. They have done really well and fixed many of the issues, so yes, this was a great recovery effort and I respect that...now if only they could do it to the main series :P
I think it's cool that they listened to feedback and basically started from scratch, based on the open beta though it just still doesn't seem that good. I never played 1.0 to see how bad it was to start though.
