Some comments are way too optimistic. Especially if they don't want to rush the launch, a minor delay of 1-2 months can easily extend to 3 plus. Some reports from a source that has been right on many occasions before state that the internal release date is already set to July 2013 due to the delays in Alpha start date and development schedule. Take the info as you may but let's not paint rainbows to the sky when it's not warranted. That is what leads to disappointment in the end.

The July release is pretty much 100% speculation at this point. Officially the game is still slotted to launch early next year, so my expectations lie closer to that than 6 months away. Still, it's a possibility.

As for the optimism... based on the alpha leaks I've seen... personally I've become very optimistic. I enjoy XIV a lot in it's current interation and a much improved version of that has me super excited.

Since I do have previous FFXIV game bought, which means I don't have to buy new box and that this game does not have cash shop and that I don't have time and usually don't like to play more than one character in mmorpg which mean I will be able to use cheapest subsciption plan it means that I will definately give this game a chance :)

I believe he means zones in the same sense as we see them in GW2 or FFXI, as opposed to the current game where each region is seamless...sort of like megazones. The world won't be instanced in th same sense as GW1 if that's what you're concerned about.

That's still very bad information...

I would like information what EXACTLY is meant by instancing.  I don't like non-seamless zones like in GW2 / AoC/ FFXI and most of mmorpg's also.

What astral said is what I meant- I will update the original post to better explain this. If seemless zones are a requirement for you, then you probably won't like the way ARR is set up.

Well if SE changed FFXIV to zoned game like GW2, TSW, AoC or similar then I don't know if I will play it. It is something that I really don't like.   Guess I will decide when / if I will be able to play beta or trial.

I'm only playing the role chosen for me. Who you supposed to be?

11/08/12 11:15:14 AM#49

This game has a pretty nasty history preceding it... will be interesting to see if they overcome it.  Been a FF fan since FF1 back in 87 but felt the series went off the rails with FF7.  I like my old school gameplay.

The alpha video looked very nice.  But a beautiful world does not a good MMO make.  Like others, its going to come down to the combat, and not just the mechanics of it but the *feel* which is really hard to pinpoint.  Mostly a personal feeling.  I also heard it will have WOW-like questing (fine)... but is the questing linear for quest hub-to-quest hub or are there reasons to just roam around and do other things?

Does it include other systems? such as:

Fishing?

Swimming?

Crafting? (meaning can I craft weapons as good as the ones I buy/drop?)

Housing?

Boats/Airships? (Which I can control and fly around?)

Is all of these surrounding systems that will make me want to sub because I will want to explore it. 

Ill buy it and sub for one month to give it a go.  Looking food so far but looks have been constantly decieving recently.

So you must not be playing another launched in the past 5 years or so.

What are you playing now?  Or are you on the sidelines?

The seamless zones in FFXIV 1.0 was a major reason for the game's technical failure, it resulted in bland copy-pasted open world, server and engine issues. By zoning they get to make each zone have more character, and solve server issues, it's a small price to pay, given the horrible mess of 1.0.

It’s important to understand this as a technical limitation, not a design decision made arbitrarily. It would be like complaining that the graphics are not as good as a single player game.

i like seamless games, but is not something that will make to play a game or not.

 

Gameplay and content is what will keep me playing or not.

so much determination in this company to save the Final Fantasy online franchise after their own mistake, while western companies only wants to milk players when their games fail from their own mistake too......

Im really looking forward to the new FFXIV 2.0 

Keep it up Square Enix, If 2.0 launches and is a success maybe the Asian companies were meant to overthrow the rest of the  western non-blizzard mmo makers

nice list of changes. looks like it may actually turn into a pimped out version of FFXI now.

may have to pass this list on to a couple buddies.

There are no boats or airships that you can control. Swimming is not in at the launch.

The rest of the features will be there.

Couldn't say it better myself i for one been in FF XIV since 1.15 and im lovin it and cant wait for 2.0 or beta ^^. WHAT IM REALLY HYPE FOR IS ARCANIST/SUMMONER like omfg ive been waiting for that class for a year im so excited they bringing the pet class back.

 

The game will not launch at july that wouldn't make sense why release the alpha now? the gap will rage the community unless they get open beta to everyone then the release is still mid january/feb.

It doesn't matter if its a technical limitation or a choice,it is there and it sucks.

Depends who your source is I guess... the thread on the official forums? Yeah, according to it there's no reason to believe the claim. But his information came from somewhere too, and personally I've seen his source predict a lot of things correct before.

Nothing wrong with optimism, but Summer 2013 release would not be surprising at all. Every company has delays, but only some of them have the balls to delay the release due to it.
