I will play AAR when it goes into OB to see all the changes. I am quite excited for the release. Even though 1.0 wasn't the best...it definitely was not the worst MMO that I have played. I played and enjoyed 1.0 longer than any of these ftp games with no substance that I have been attempting lately because of the lack of decent options for me.  1.0 had some good ideas that was not implemented very well. The thing that irked me most about 1.0 was not the interface, lack of quests, or art style; it was the fact that I had to search for hours in the bazaar zones to find an upgrade or material that I was looking for.  It was the last game I played that people actually grouped to level which I miss quite a bit. I am so tired of these "mmos" that come out that are really just srpgs with multiplayer lobbies (ie GW2). I could care less about endgame...I want the journey to be fun again.

My sentiments as well.

 

To Mr. Bachus, I would say just try out the game when it goes into open beta. If you haven’t done so already sign up to get into the next closed beta phase. Personally I just hope enough people like it this time around and stick with the P2P business model. I don’t want to see the game going F2P. It “almost” never ends well when they make the transition.

It depends upon the players really. if they do not support the game second time, SE will have no choice to but to go F2P.

First time players abandoned the game they had to make a second version and now if players abandon the game in droves yet again i doubt they will make a third version.

Yes SE has deep pockets but for how long they will keep pumping their own money into FFXIV without seeing any returns on their investment?

I passed on 1.0. I was following it, but decide against it  because I was following SWTOR more closely (friends were buying the game) and all the talk about it being bad were sort of a turn off.

I already pre-ordered my v2.0 digital CE edition of FFXIV. :) It was sort of a "well it's just $50, at worst I'll play for a month, the graphix are so pretty" choice though...

I was a fan of FFXIV long before its first release, true it let me down but ARR makes up for everything, the game is amazing now and ive already pre-ordered 2 copies for me and my wife :)

All is easily forgiven for myself. The game is fantastic right now as it stands and i would throw my money at it again if i had to pay for it.

MMO gamers are very desperate, we will throw money at almost anything that claims to be an "MMORPG"

I find myself rather shocked to say that I am going to give it a chance.  They've worked really hard to improve and fix the problems.  I find myself cautiously optimistic which is surprising because I was so disgusted with FFXIV initial launch.

I bought Digital CE because I've always been a fan of FF and really don't have any other games to look forward to (have the extra money to spend fortunately)

I'll play the 30 days that come with it and then decide if I want to pay subscription fees :)

Its funny to me the people who say they think FFXIV 1.0 was the worst mmo ever created. Especially when those people have GW2 signatures at bottom of page. It tells me two things. One that they grew up playing platform and console games. Not that thats a bad thing... I too grew up on those things, but I always hungered for something I couldnt beat in 2-3 days. So i graduated to rpgs and found my love. Second it tells me they havent played very many mmos besides WoW and GW2.

FFXIV 1.0 wasnt a good game at launch. I know, i was there regretting my 60 bucks spent. But the game became something special after Yoshi took over and many updates. Why else would so many be upset that 2.0 disappoints them because it so little resembles the final version of 1.0. Lastly if you are truly an mmo fan i dare you to youtube FFXIV Ifrite hardmode battle from 1.0 and still think its the worst mmo ever created.

 I have read everything Yoshi has released to the public and seen every FFXIV ARR video and I am excited for the game. I am actually going to buy a ps3 just for the game so my girlfriend (who has never played a mmo) can play along with me. I look at how SE has conducted themselves after their failure and how Yoshi goes completely against the normal japanese developer manner in order to reestablish trust in the company and product. I look at how other titles ask for 2+ million in start up fees while not having one ounce of a game, other than ideas, while SE spends 2+ years on redesigning a failed game from the ground up without asking for a dime. Add to the fact that they just fired their president because they lost over 150 million do to this failure.

I appreciate there commitment (this time) to quality of game over dollars and cents. Hence the delays in release. If you as a consumer cant see and appreciate this in a developer then maybe you should just stick to WoW and F2p. The rest of us will be enjoying potentially the best game to be release in that past 5 years.

My personal distaste for 1.0 stems from my expectations at the time that SE learned something from XI.  I could not have been more wrong.  1.0 wrote the book on what not to do when developing not only an MMO but a sequel to a loved predecessor.

I personally have played everything under the sun.  The only thing difficult about Ifrit Hard mode was dealing with lag and not being able to move in time.  Once again, fighting the limitations of the game and it's mechanics, instead of the boss itself is a staple of XI and XIV.  It's really a basic encounter made for players not really used to movement, which many FF MMO fans are guilty of.  After all, it was rarely required in FFXI, other than kiting.

I suggest you look up Akylios world first, prior to it's inevitable nerf, if you want to see what a really difficult encounter looks like.

I'm looking forward to trying ARR to see how far Yoshi has taken the game.  Everything I've seen so far looks great but all that matters to me is how well it actually plays and how much solid content they can release.  The eye candy is starting to wane on me when it comes to FF.  I'd like to see some fluid combat and difficult content that doesn't put me to sleep.

Can't say much more that hasn't already been said....I was a serious beta tester in version 1.0, and hated the game so much I didn't bother buying the game for launch, nor after it. I didn't regret my decision, didn't give it a second thought. I started hearing about all the drama, the firings, the new producer, then kept in touch with any info about ARR. It got my attention, looks good, hope it plays well. I preordered my digital CE, and will be giving this a chance. And that one chance is all it gets. I was a big fan of FF XI when it first came out, have some fond memories and adventures. Been looking to recapture that ever since......

 

Yeah, ARR graphics look nice and spiffy, but I want fun gameplay, great groups to party with, I want adventure! lol. Real life sucks sometimes and so its nice to escape it now and then...Final Fantasy games have given me that for many years. I couldn't pass up that cool looking chocobo armor being offered in the CE haha :P I am a fan of chocobos, and I sure loved my pet wyvern Nadja in FF XI. I am rooting for this games success, hope it doesn't suck, and will be worth my time and money. Life is short, and precious.....and cash limited. That is all

Final Fantasy XIV was bad at release, but was amazing during the few months before they took it offline for Realm Reborn.  I picked it up for only $9.99 after the free period ended and was thoroughly impressed.  Honestly, I liked the game so much that I'm concerned about whether Realm Reborn will be an improvement or not.  You shouldn't dwell on first impressions with MMORPG's as they tend to improve rapidly.

Tell that to Tanak who got sacked that 'first impressions' do not matter. If the game was really that huge of an improvement than why more players didn't come back? because in MMOS you seldom get a second chance.

More players went back than anticipated when they restarted subscription, there is evidence on that, where is your evidence that players didnt go back?

Common sense? ever heard of a successful game being shut down in favor of another version of same game? if they had lot of players and were making profit on subs why would they work their asses off to make a new version of FFXIV?

Ah ignorance, the source of so much entertainment on forums.

When Tanaka was fired and YoshiP replaced him the entire future of the game was re-planned.

The shut down of the servers to relaunch as ARR was planned from the start because there were things they wanted to do (such as replace the engine) that they couldn't do with simple updates. When they restarted subs because they felt the game was in a good state (and it genuinely was) they were already well into the development of ARR. Do some research before trying to start arguments.
