I played and it was nice to be in the FF world but it doesn't seem any better or worse than any f2p mmo out.

And somehow you felt like you had to make yet another single sentence thread instead of posting it as a comment in one of the dozens of "i dont liek ff14/it brings nothing new to moi!!11" threads.

*No item mall. Already there better than most f2ps.

*Living breathing world.

*Interdependent crafting



However, of course, it is FF and that's what really sets it apart. It feeels and breathes FF. (Nostalgia is powerful)


It is certainly not your min-max game or PvP game.

If you like 'old school', that doesn't explain why you would flock to FFXIV. It's a Final Fantasy flavored rendition of WoW. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing - WoW got quite a bit right, especially at launch. But FFXIV isn't any more what is generally considered 'old school' than Rift.

I am a gamer. Not because I don't have a life...But because I choose to have many.

It's sub because the game has already lost money with it's original release and then the company sank hundreds of thousands of dollars to relaunch it as the fans requested. In the end it's about making money. That said, this is a P2P game with a box price of only $29.99 (unless you go collector edition which it's the price of most normal P2P box values) And then you can sub for only $12.99 a month, which again is below most subscription models. If you don't enjoy the Final Fantasy world enough to want to play online with others inside that world, and can't appreciate the story and mechanics to the game. Then you don't need to play. There's nothing wrong with you not enjoying the game enough to pay for it. But this game could not go f2p without becoming pay to win and make enough money to be profitable with the costs Square Enix has lost so far on this title. Other than Rift, all other f2p games end up costing you well over $20 a month if you're a serious end-game player with the cash shop items that get released. People don't realize that f2p just means it's free to try out and level, but you pay more in the long run to keep playing it at end game. I prefer the p2p model as it keeps things fair and filters out kids and others who can't afford the subscription or don't plan on committing their time to a single MMO.

But, but, but. They done it so fucking good. 

Not like I'm for - or against - this MMORPG but your statement of:

"I'll tell you why. All those hyped next gen garbage, Messiah, Jesus, younameit, failed so freakin bad. They didn't deliver nothing, but hype by PR shit and whatever."

You realize that FFXIV was such a failure at launch that they pulled the game, remade it, and are now reselling it?  Not like that's a bad thing, but FFXIV was just a much a train wreck as those other MMORPGs that you're mentioning.  Hopefully they'll get it right with this re-release, but I'll wait to find out.

I dunno, I feel the game lost alot of its uniqueness by them making it a generic wow clone. They made the game too soloable, imo they should have made it so you can't solo too much too easly so people would party more. I am sick and tired of these themepark mmorpgs where its pretty much a single player game for most of it.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

A. Proven right (if something bad happens)


B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

Because this is what MMORPGs are.  They aren't action adventure games.  They're RPGs.  Sure there are action RPGs but I don't really play those.  Hell I didn't even really play dragon age or elder scrolls but I have countless hours on classic square soft titles.

Then join parties more. I was in a group at least half the time I was playing.  Nothing stops you from still doing things in a party.  The only thing I really did solo was the story/class quests but even some of those I had to do in a party.  And, yes I mean had.

That topic name....

Guess what, some ppl prefer mmo's was in 2005 much more then how they are now, how the heck is that hard to understand ?

Beside of that, i honestly hate "action mmo" like tera, they are become so boring after a while. GCD ? i like how it is now, and i hate how wow turns into "who can do more APM" in some classes to pull better dps, its not fun to play.

Many ppl forget beside MMO there is second part....RPG. And Tera is not a MMORPG but MMO ACTION GAME.

What's wrong with tab targeting and global cooldowns? They're basic mechanics that work very well. I can see nothing wrong with them.

why are people playing FPS since doom , if COD4 was released in 1990 it would have been fine. see what I did here?. do not take into depth, but generally speaking , it works and it works for specific segment of the market. if all of MMO players have the same taste, they would be all playing one single MMO out of 1000s, it just FFXIV devs made the right choice by choosing which segment to target since appearently it is a very large segment.


I hope an AAA company brings an innovative gameplay for you to enjoy, but I also hope for you to respect this segment of the market and their choices of old-school "outdated" MMO system.

People need to think more broadly. Whether you like the game or not, the fact that FF XIV failed, was pulled, remade and relaunched as a substantially better game is GOOD for the industry and therefore good for us players.


Imagine if EA/Mythic had had the guts to do that with Warhammer, or NCSoft with Tabula Rasa, hell even SOE with SWG after the CU/NGE debacle? What would we get? Better games, that's what.


So think about that, whether you like the game or not it doesn't matter. If more companies did what Squenix have done the MMO world would be a better place.

In 2005 there wasn't too much wrong with MMOs .dont change it if it ain't broken. If they haven't messed up EQ game play and up done the graphics there would be no need to look any further and the same can be said for WoW.

 And that's why I thank God for SquareEnix's decision on doing  FF14 P2P , one less troll to worry about. Can't wait to get my physical copy next week!!

You know what, after playing in the Beta 4 weekend I realized how much I had missed that combat style where some strategy was required rather than literally button mashing my way through combat.  Smacking a few buttons as fast as I can doesn't equal fun combat to me, so I'm glad that all developers haven't jumped on the bandwagon and we still have some choice rather than making all games the same.
