Yes! Yes! Yes! (If you know where that comes from, you are a winner). After three long months... I have my FFXIV account back. I was banned falsely, and now that I have my account back... Well, I can play my favorite MMO again. It is a pretty good reason why, I went to Star Wars for so long, because I couldn't fill the void that FFXIV had left behind. You have truly no idea how happy I am to be able to play again. In light of all this, I have decided to re-roll servers and character. I will now be playing on the Behemoth server, and playing a Lancer! I am super stoked about this. Before I was banned, I planned on talking about this game a lot, but you know... I got banned, so since I am now un-banned, I am going to continue to blog about this. A lot. More than I did for SWTOR for sure. Like, I said I went to a whole bunch of MMOs, Lotro, Swtor, NWN, etc. I had a bunch of blogs drafts for them, but I am going to trash them because I will be talking about FFXIV. I haven't come up with a name for the series. That's the hardest part for me, you know? I cannot tell you enough how stoked I am about this. As I said before, this game really brought the MMO genre back to me.
I know a lot of people have problems with the combat system. I actually like it a lot. I like the pace of it, and I know a lot of people have strong opinions on it. My opinion of course is... I like it. It could maybe be improved, but you know... I like how it is. I won't have to complain about server instability like I did before, which is a good thing. We all know that. Even though it has a TERRIBLE launch, it didn't break the game for me, because I knew how great it would be. Yes, I was seriously pissed off, but you know... When I got on, boy did I have a blast, so that's what made the deal for me. I've actually never played a MMO on launch days, and I can see why a lot of people wait, but you know... It was Final Fantasy, and... Yeah. Lol. As far as that goes, I won't have to worry about none of that, and can really start to enjoy the game, like it's meant to be. I plan on writing great content about this game. I've ordered a better PC, so I can actually stream for you guys, and not give the stream like 15 FPS. Which is a good thing. I'm either going to be streaming the game, or posting Let's Play videos on youtube. I am not actually sure what I really want to do. I want to do video content though. I was going to do it with SWTOR, but we know how that turned out. As soon as it arrives, I will set it all up, with what I decide to do.
I'm torn between streaming and youtube. I could do both, but that requires a lot of time. Right now, I don't have a lot of time, and being new to this, I don't want to stress myself, and not be able to come up with good content, and not a bunch of crappy ones. So I can't really put some strong thought into it, until my PC arrives. I'm also having my internet boosted, so I can stream properly with that. I've done a bunch of research about this, so it's going to be fun.
Patch 2.1 is being released soon, and it has a bunch of new content coming to the game. One of them I am really excited about is Housing! I actually don't have a lot of knowledge about it, and haven't researched it much, but I am excited none the less. With that being said, I am hoping the future of FFXIV looks bright. The game has a ton of potential to expand. I read an article where the story for the first expansion has been completed. So, that's always a good thing to look forward to. I must also mention, since I have my favorite game back, the new AAA MMOs coming out, don't really look interesting to me as much. When the NDA for TESO is over, I will defiantly talk about my experiences about it. I wish I could talk about it now, but patience and it will come. If you want to leave in the comments what you would like to see more of, a Let's Play, or stream of FFXIV, any input would be awesome! I really look forward to being able to play the game, and talking about it with you all.
I talked about re-rolling, and I think it would be a good thing for me to do. Lancer was always my favorite class in FF:Tactics, and that's why I'm choosing that. As for the Server re-rolled, my guild there sort of went to poop, when the GM left, so I went to more a popular server (Behemoth), and I think that'll bring a good change for me. Let's hope at least, yah know? Before I start to rattle on, I will end it here. Until the next time! Cheers!
