I got a friend invite email and I tried it for a week...and no way in heck am I going back to that game. From the ground up it's not an MMO I would ever consider playing.

 

Lack of pvp, end game content everyone looks the same. Classes are a mess....no thanks.

They expected to have horrible numbers starting and grow the base over time like they what happened with 1.0, only to have that absolutely not happen. This is history making whether you like it or not.

And the only thing similer is the name. That's like saying SWTOR launched in 2003...

That makes no sense. I don't remember SWTOR being a relaunch of SWG. FFXIV wasn't a relaunch of XI either. FFXIVARR is a relaunch of FFXIV, that's all. I could have sworn there were people saying this game would never get another chance because it failed before. Now that has gotten another chance, it doesn't mean anything. Whatever floats your boat.

^ This.

Sadly agree, there's nothing to gain from trying to rub it in peoples noses. I am glad the game is doing well. I also don't see me leaving the game any time soon, but challenging people in that way doesnt encourage them to give it a chance, its more likely to turn people away.

Why is your glass so half-empty? There's nothing to lose either.

It's quite hilarious in a sad way, how people want me to take the high road when in reality this thread has turned to be two pages of exactly how I predicted. In other words this forum is not worth taking the high road, and you will come to see it over-time if you don't happen to think so. Of course it can be argued that my OP triggered the reaction but in that case I can only say that you must be new to the MMORPG.com community. :D

The best thing about this thread so far for me is how people cling to the fact 1.5 million is "not so much" when the real news is the game has seen an increase of 50% in total accounts even a month after the release. Every other modern MMO ever grows exponentially in the first few weeks and then takes a complete nosedive. FFXIV:ARR happens to be a different story, and this seems to be a hard bit to swallow.

It is also hilariously easy to see who is actually playing the game based on how people bring up the RMT. When was it I saw an RMT shout last time, hmm, maybe 2 weeks ago... yep they must be the majority of the half a million accounts.

 

Your 100% accurate about this community in the beginning of this post, don't let the trolls fool you they are dieing inside to see this game fail like they have touted on countless threads and is evident at the irrational excuse of rmt accounts representing any significant majority. You know what will be fun? After 2.1, 2.2 and ps4 launch when the game will really take off. These kiddies will be so sad their 6 month shut down predictions were invalid. Oh haters who keep claiming 1.5 mil box sales isn't impressive, besides swtor what other game has done this since WoW??? I'll wait...

This game is so trashy that it got my sister pregnant & then claimed it wasn't the father.

 

This game will not be welcome in my house until it accepts responsibility for it's actions.

 

I want justice!

joking aside,  I wish FFXIV well

i think any new  mmo would welcome claiming over 1 million accounts

doubt they will announce sub#s -- or at least RIFT never did

I was tempted to buy this game at lauch, but after some consideration decided to pass, since I didn't want to make the same mistake as I did with GW2 - buying a game blindly which then turns out to not be my style at all in any shape or form.

I haven't played any FF game ever, heck I haven't even watched a single video of anyone playing any FF game, so this entire setting is a big mystery to me. If they manage to keep the sub for 1 year, I'll probably look into it. If it goes freemium, then it's pretty obvious that this is just a 'new and shiny thing' on the market, which has sales because of hype, not quality (not saying this is a fact).

Good call, I wish I hadn't gotten burnt... twice! :( I keep saying "Never again!" then go out and buy the newest MMO/game that turns out to be nothing like it was meant to be. Money to burn I guess. :(

No trials. No tricks. No traps. No EU-RP server. NO THANKS!

One little wrinkle - the original article clearly states "registered accounts" - the wording is important, because technically you can register an account with SE without even buying the game.

registered accounts means they registered their 'key's so unless your suggesting they stole them? then surely that means they bought the game, hence the 'registered account' status.

It is nice to see some support for a developer that puts a ton of money and effort into their game.I don`t like these real amateur type developers being rewarded with millions for doing so little ...ahem CCp as one example,Blizzard is another.

I know Blizzard spends a decent amount of money ,but NOT to the game only in overhead factors to support a large player base.IMO a developer is making multi millions in profit,they SHOULD be steadily improving the game to keep fans happy and entice new fans.

Square Enix has not gone in a direction to make me happy but at least they are making some people happy  and enticing new ones.

I can use another example of a dev / game that really pissed me off MTGT.Soe simply released the game and did absolutely NOTHING with it,no attempt to listen to fans or improve thegame and it's many bugs,they simply quit on the fan base,that is a really lame ting to do to your supporters,SOE deserves to be blacklisted along with NCSOFT.Remeber NCSOFT shut down that game TR just to avoid paying added millions to Lord British and his brother,they did not care about the fans,gamer's.

Square Enix does care and as important,about their game,they do not like to give up,they work hard to "try" and make it right,i can't ask for more than that,even though FFXIV is still not where i want it to be.

Well Star Wars is and has always been the biggest IP in the world,so it was going to sell just on it's name alone.I am still shocked at how many still know nothing about Square Enix or FFXI,only the biggest game developer over the last 20 years,they are not the household name Star Wars is.

In saying that yes,instant numbers have proven to mean little over the last 5-7 years,but this MIGHT be a tad different,remember this si a re-release,how many games have been able to recover at all after a shaky start?Answer NONE,not only id FFXIV recover it improved both the game drastically and the player base and it's perception.

Registered SE account - no keys needed.

FF14 accounts need a key.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has seen an increase of 500 000 accounts since Tokyo Game Show . . .

Sounds like FF14 accounts to me, but reading comprehension is low on these forums so you are excused.

Does it really matters that much if a gamer is in playing from Los Angeles or Tokyo? The game have most likely the same payment model in Japan as well as EU/US anyways.

The discussion about Wow was because Chinese players have a different payment system and because it have been discussed just how they actually count the active Chinese players. If Wows players paid the same worldwide I doubt we would have had any threads about it here.

Anyways, gratz to FFXIV but it must of course be able to keep those players as well as getting them in the first place. So far so good... :)

I'm sorry to burst this giant bubble you've probably spent so much time building but FFXIV:ARR is quite special.

1) Japanese play FFXIV:ARR in huge numbers. Japanese do not play any other MMORPG. They do not behave like the rest of the world in their MMORPG consumer preferences. Unlike Korean MMO's this matters because FFXIV:ARR is a truly global product, not outsourced "updates half a year later if that" Westernized version of the same product.

2) PS3 players play FFXIV:ARR in huge numbers. No other "WoW clone" has a huge following on the consoles.

I'm sorry to bring you these real world examples that so completely make your statement moot, but what can you do. Anyone can see it, but it takes a certain person to completely ignore what's in front of them and claim the opposite.

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 lasted 1 month with SWTOR and that's cause I love Star Wars...that game was (and is) an insult to MMO's. FF ARR is a MUCH MUCH better game and will thrive as long as the updates promised arrive on time.

Currently playing as Pete Puma on Excalibur. FF ARR - The best MMO I've played since SWG!
