The fact that they were so lazy as to not change the playable races from XI pretty much at all tells me that they aren't even really trying. Stupid.
They have a universe with so much potential, but as a company they've made horrible decisions for pretty much the last 7+ years. Being optimistic about that game is like walking blindfolded through a minefield. No hope.
Once they stated it would have a Monthly fee that pretty much caused it to be dead in the water before it even got anything going, not when you got quality F2P games out there, and the pay once and then free online games like Guild Wars 2, which after playing that I'm not going back to paid monthly service EVER again, the game is epic in almost every way, sure could use some more in game motivation gameplay, but regardless they showed the much better way to make a MMORPG.
