What am i doing wrong? as i seem to never be able to get past chapter 11 of this game. Is it because i don't like grinding so i just don't grind or do i just not understand the combat system? I have been playing this game since 2010 and i still can not get past chapter 11 and the only thing i have figured out is that it was mostly luck that i got to chapter 11 in the first place. And i have been playing on the Xbox360 and why i have not given up on beating this game yet i don't know.

Honestly i figure coming to a speedrun board is probably my best option if i ever want to beat this game considering how long i spent trying to beat it.

The speedruns don't really grind at all so it's definitely not necessary to grind. However, I think you're "meant" to do some missions in Chapter 11 which would naturally give you some more CP. If you don't, there's a big difficulty spike in Chapter 11. When I play casually, I don't typically grind but I just do some missions and fight everything along the way. But even that is not necessary as seen in the speedruns. Answering the question of what you're doing wrong is hard without knowing what you're actually doing.

The difficulty does spike in chapter 11. The speedrun gets around this with very targetted CP/Upgrades, and efficient paradigm decks.

Honestly, pick a speedrun, and start watching around chapter 9. It'll give you an idea of what strong mechanics look like.

Ok then i probably just don't understand the combat system or i am just bad at JRPG's even though i like and enjoy them. And yeah i will check out some runs of this game and see if there is anything i can learn, and before you ask what about the experience at this point it is about my pride and being to stubborn to accept defeat at the hands of this game.

You do you, and enjoy the game. It's a fun game, once you peel back the layers on it.
