OP  2/22/13 12:56:32 PM#1

Hello guys,

I am really but really looking forward to Final Fantasy XIV: ARR. It looks amazing and I have big hopes in it :)

 

I didnt buy original Final Fantasy XIV due to so many bad reviews and all.. But what I read and see now about ARR is nice !!!

 

So what my question is... If I buy FF XIV: ARR(original vesion) box at some retail store today, is it worth it? I make an account and will it be updated to ARR once it lauch right? Will It give me also acess to the ARR beta? I mean ... what exactly I get for it :)

... and will I be able to play the FF XIV original version now, just to try it out, or are servers currently offline due to this remake?

 

Thank you for information !! And sorry If i missed these informations somewhere

 

Laters :)

Correct me if I am wrong but there is a subscription that confers similar advantages?

I heard, but cannot find anything to back this up in a quick (rather uninterested) google search to back me up, that you can still subscribe and obtain most benefits.  Can anyone elucidate?

I'm not sure if they've changed how it works, but at launch when you bought a box and logged in, it wanted a credit card for your monthly subscription.  You weren't billed anything until your free month was up, but that's how it worked back then.

You cannot make new accounts right now, thus you'd be wasting your money.  The original FFXIV boxes are null and void!   Just wait for the ARR version to be released and go from there.

Thats FFXI, not FFXIV.  You can still make new accounts for that game, as its still a live MMO, unlike XIV thats shutdown.

I answered it, don't purchase the 1.0 ver of FFXIV.  They were recalled last fall and rendered void.  You cannot make new FFXIV accounts until ARR launches.

I was expecting "patches" to progress it from 11 to 12 etc.  Didn't realize it is two different MMO's.  Whats the difference?

For all intents and purposes, it's easier to just consider FFXIV:ARR a completely seperate game from anything else. Unless you were subscribed to FFXIV 1.0 when it closed down (Legacy status), then you will have to purchase/download the game when it releases, like everyone else.

NGE, LOTRO, STO, KOTOR, Lego Star Wars > NGE 2 (SWTOR). SWG>ALL. Above hopefully subject to change.

From reading the FAQs on the official site they said the new accounts could not be created until ARR is released, then it seems that you can create an account with an old version or a new ARR version (if one is released for PC). It does not seem to be totally null and void, just can not create an account right now

First-time Users who wish to play FINAL FANTASY XIV

New users who have registered a new account by September 29, 2012, 23:59 (GMT)

As long as your 30 day free trial end date is after September 30, 2012, you will be able play the game for free until operation of the current version of FINAL FANTASY XIV terminates.

New users who wish to register a new account after September 30, 2012, 0:00 (GMT)
Registration services will have ended and you will not be able to register a new account to play the current version of FINAL FANTASY XIV. You will have to wait until FFXIV: ARR is launched.

I bought the original version just before the original version shut down but did not get around to using it, as was deliberating whether to use it or wait for ARR. If I have to buy another one, then I will give this a complete miss then.

There are no new ARR ones up for preorder. Amazon are selling the original ones still here and here plus a few others. It should be like using the original SWG discs at launch, instead of Complete Online Adventures. Using the original discs meant the game needed more updating, and took longer but they still worked.

As far as i know you will be able to used old FFXIV code to register an account. Registrations should be available in last beta phase.

If it was an updated game with the core systems still intact, yes, but it's not. This is like trying to update diablo 3 with your Diablo 2 disk.
