pretty funny. someone who hates alts getting into the game's alting system.  It really does fool you into alting and loving to alt. Hiding it by letting you stay on one character.

I have a confession to make. I never really play alts. In fact up until a few years ago other than using them as mules I downright despised them. I’ve since lightened up on my stance on alts (it was kind of ridiculous to begin with) but I had some kind of stupid moral objection to them. When I played a MMORPG and created my character, that character became my primary concern in the game. I would do anything I could to make that character as powerful and as complete as it could be, whether that is through crafting, fishing, doing every quest the game has to offer, exploring every nook and cranny on the map, that’s what you would find me doing. While chasing this goal of completion of my one character I ultimately missed out on a lot of what the game had to offer. This is one of the reasons that I adore the job system in Final Fantasy XIV:ARR. I can still spend all of my time on a single character but now I’m not limited to only ever getting to play one class and job. I can now play all of them. This system, for completionists like me, is a dream come true. While this sounds like it may present a whole new set of challenges when it comes to inventory management, Square Enix had the foresight to add in the armory chest which addresses this concern.

Read more of Rob Lashley's Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn - More Beta Impressions.

Last weekend wasn't the final phase of beta.

 

Phase 3 (which we will be in the 4th test window of, beginning on the 5th at 2 am PST) is still ongoing, it is also not the last phase.  Phase 4 is the last phase of beta.

What I thought the Beta phase had ended 2 weeks ago I would have logged in this past weekend if I knew it was still going on. =(

Is phase 3 done now? Or is there going to be another weekend? I am not in beta so haven't heard anything. I saw on road map that phase 3 was supposed to be 3 weeks.

"The biggest limitations when using the controller are that you have to toggle across menu items on your UI that you can just click on if you are using a mouse and keyboard"

If you look into the actions menu, you can actually bind the menu buttons you normally find on the bottom-right on PC, onto the cross hot-bar so there's no need to toggle across the menu items.

EDIT: Also forgot to mention that you can enter "mouse mode" by pressing L3 and R1, or was it R3 and L1? I don't remember but it's in there lol.

Yeeeeeah, really stretching the definitions here aren't we...lol.

The biggest downside of alting removed... no fooling necessary. Just removing the shitty part of the concept from existence. The reason why it is hated in the first place.

FF:ARR FATE grinding: People not having fun by doing something not actually intended to get to a point that doesn't really matter as fast as possible. Just so they can do the same thing over and over again to gain a piece of virtual loot.

I was accepted into the beta, but regretfully, I could not play. I"m in a different country right now, and my internet is shit. :(  I also couldn't figure out the "key" thing they wanted. I assume they wanted a code, like the keys on WOW, but I never set one up. I"m not sure why it was activated on my account. :( Odd

Having played the last CBT weekends I think this game is not worth for  B2P and P2P. This game is no way better than War-Hammer that launched about 10 years ago.

Besides, city maps got no sense of directions, the streets are too narrow. Quests are boring and FATE is borrowed idea.

Cut scenes and quests information are lengthly and there's no options to bypass them.

As someone who played MMO for almost 15 years I don't really give a damn about the story line or wall of texts. I only wanted to skip the craps so that I can digest the game quicker at the end stages.

This is most definitely not the game for you.  FF games are always about story, I'm surprised you didn't know that going into the game. 

Also, since you are just an endgame rusher, something many consider to be the problem in the genre today, well again, wrong game for you and possibly even wrong genre.  But hey, WoW is still thriving and has that endgame only aspect you seek.  Not sure what you mean by War-Hammer launching 10 years ago as it launched in 2008 and that's only 5 years ago.

I have never found a game with just PVE that could continue to hold my attention.It must have faction conflict.Given the game has the promise of that with FRONTLINE faction conflict....I am interested in the game.

I would really appreciate anyone who has a spare north america pc key giving me a chance t see what this game is all about and help make it better.

Allow me to introduce you to my little friend:

 

Logitech Netplay Controller

 

If you can find one of these bad boys, it is THE best solution of playing MMO's on a console, IMHO. We own like 5 of them...just in case :-) See, they don't make them anymore, so it can be harder to find....its called the Logitech Netplay Controller. It was for the PS2 and we first used it for FFXI. it is basically a oversized PS2 controller with a laptop keyboard sandwiched in between it.

 

I know it looks nuts, but it's the best thing ever. The bottom is curved to conform to your legs and the ends are really comfy to hold...and the thing rests on your lap while playing on the couch and you can totally take both hands off the sides to type quickly. It has all of hte buttons of a PS2 controller (no Six-Axis)

Netplay

There are two connections total, one for the PS2 and another a usb for the keyboard. If you find one, you will need a PS2 to USB adapter...which you can find on ebay for literally 2 or 3 bucks.

 

Hope this helps, Enjoy!

This is correct. Last weekend was not the final phase of beta. In fact it is no where near it unfortunately.  The game is still in beta phase 3. This weekend is a phase 3 weekend. It kicks off at 2m PDT July 5th. Unlike previous weekends this one has no hard end date because they want to stress test the duty system and need to leave them up longer to see if they crash. I believe this is the final phase 3 test.

After this test concludes we will see phase 4 and open beta kick off possibly in late July but more than likely early August. Also head start will begin on August 20th.

Hope that clears it up and sorry for any confusion we caused.

2008 was 10 years ago, eh? So 2008 subtracted from 2013 now equals 10? Damn, when did math up and change like that?

 

Per your description of how you play, you sound like someone who's simply too impatient to enjoy ARR, or most any other MMO for that matter. ARR may not be worth the fee for you - and that's fine, it's your prerogative; no game will be for everyone.

 

I hope you find a MMO that thoroughly satisfies your playstyle :)

If their smart they'll bring that controller back for PS3/4 since  MMOs are slowly going to become more of a console genre too.

I bought the original release (Collectors Ed) of FFXIV and left the game shortly after the initial launch. Since hear about the re-launch I have been eager to try the new released version of the game. Alas try to contact Square to talk to someone to answer a few question is not possible. I tried submitting a ticket and did not really get a response. There is no way I will shell out the cost of a new game to play this. It is like all the people that went and bought the game when it first came out or out of luck. No notifications of the new game with the possibility of playing the Betas or anything. 

It would be nice if a column was done at MMORPG that would deal with this issue. There were a lot of people that bought the game when it first came out and it seems like we are being ignored.

You have to reactivate your original account. Then you get beta access & 2.0 for the price of free.
