Back to my original problem - is 13 supposed to get hard as all hell when it finally gets off the rails in chapter 11, or do I just really suck at FF? ...

[quote]You have more control over battles in my opinion as the series goes on.[/quote]
That's encouraging - my biggest gripe with the whole "battle system" concept in 13 is feeling like I know what needs to be done to win a battle but not knowing how to make my party members do it.

3 years later, I'll just say I am not too sure I made the c...
