Lot's of flash and pzazz, but is there any substance?

Don't underestimate the combat has influence from FFXII, one of the greatest combat systems in a JRPG ever imo. This takes it a step further into tactics, I am really excited to see how it plays out. I am waiting for a half price sale though. Life is getting too expensive, got to play it safe these days.

Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. Not interested in another rehash of Final Fantasy Tactics...

initial steam reviews are mixed :( I'm sad to see that. I was expecting a unique combat system, FFXII is still my all time favorite final fantasy... so I was really hopeful that ingeuinty would be here. I still plan to try it some day when it crashes in price in 6 months.

yea you pay, in some form or another, you miss out on things.
Like if you don't buy the game you won't play it? Apparently for full price you even get Denuvo for free!

Thinking I'm missing some context..
IDK if you know about RUST ( or similar ), in it, if you go offline, your base is more at risk than if you stayed online. If what I'm reading about this game is similar, yea youre gonna pay something for going offline. There was one game, cant remember which one, but the PVP server operator "sold" base protection while you were offline, a monthly fee IIRC. It wasnt against the rules either.
