Yup, got my house and am 13 away from 100/100 furnishings. :D I'm also close to having my miner to 50 and getting my monk geared as my second job.

The last official word was this game had 500k subscribers, be happy with that. 

The data here clearly shows the active character number has gone up since the 500k figure was mentioned. It means there is actual sub growth no matter how you want to spin it. Maybe not by 230k but by an X amount there is growth. It is more important than the actual 730k figure. It is also something you can't seem to be able to cope with. Tough luck.

Don't bother this guy isn't interested in facts.

Indeed like that fact that free trials don't count because you can't go above lvl 20 or the fact that this was done for a recent date so it doesn't count beta tester either.
Those figures are registerd users not active.

From Reddit:

Report
Individual worlds

Critera same as the last time, must be above level 21. Any changes to HP/mount/minion/gear counts character as active.

Summary

Out of a total 1.7m characters on the lodestone, 733,267 have met the above criterion. Of those, 255,626 are new.

The JP servers have best player retention rates, EU servers have the worst.
NA servers have the largest amount of new characters, EU servers have the worst.
There's a pattern in there.

Veteran Rewards

Roughly 150k people have the 540 day rewards. A saddeningly smaller number than during the previous survey's 260k of 360 day rewards, though it could just be a calendar thing.

Mounts and stuff

This one is interesting. 200k people have the Hildy minon. At least 36k people have cleared Fcob. 801k have cleared 2.0 but only 301k have cleared the 2.5 quest. 3500 people have the ADS mount, 4200 people have the Kirin mount. 53k people have paid for the bonus marriage sets based on number of people with the grand chocobo.

Clicking on any minion/mount when viewing the inidividual world statistics will bring up the global numbers for it.

Checking the Louix minion, Fcob clears are up to 10% for most JP servers while still negligible everywhere else.

And yes i'm sure some will say half of them are Alt's

This game, in my opinion, is the best WoW out there. Whether you're hardcore into raiding, midcore gamer, casual, crafter, this game will likely please you in some way or form.  

If it was truly casual friendly, it wouldn t have a story line where you re required to do dungeons to continue it. It doesn t matter if theres a duty finder or not, some people don t want to do dungeons.

Casual Friendly means nothing when it comes to grouping. I am a casual player though I have raided in the past.  Just because I am a Casual player does not mean I am a SOLO player.  I play an MMO to play with other people.  If you dont ever want to play with other people go play Dragon Age or another single player game.  MMOs should force you to group up like FFXIV does.  It should period end of story other wise it might as well just be a single player game where you never need to be online.

Lol, to do a story quest around your character should not require grouping. I never said theres anything wrong with grouping, I said it shouldn t be required to advance your char. Big difference, and to quote you "period".

Gonna have to agree to disagree. There are plenty of people that can play their role in a group well. However there are many new to mmo's that don't and having some mandatory dungeons to progress teaches them the ropes. Instead of lvling to end game and not know what they are doing. Also I like the idea that my character isn't some super man that can save the world single handedly.

Here is a tip for for the 2 main defenders of the game that post here, the ones that know what the figures actually are as well as the rest of us that know the difference between subscribers and registered numbers or accounts and sales.   Take it or leave it.

 

You know as well as I and others that certain figures are misleading and that some post it wrongly, if you own that and correct them then people like me won't have to correct them.  If you own it, you take away its power.  Also no, correcting it on page 5 when people have already had to come in and do it for you is not really doing that.

 

I and many others you classify as "haters" would not of even posted in this thread at all if an untruth was corrected by people that know better yet let it slide, don't say it wasn't seen because as I said before, some of you guys practically live here.

 

I'm not hating on FFXIV, I'm just telling it like it is.  When I see someone say that FFXIV is the 2nd most profitable or has the 2nd most subscribers for any p2p MMO I have to correct them because it' is incorrect.  The people that post here that love the game know this isn't true also but they like when people are confused about it.  If a Wildstar or ESO player did the same we would call them on it too.

 

FFXIV IS an average MMO, it is average in every way including sub numbers and sales.  Here is a major newsflash, there is nothing wrong with that at all.  This isn't a goto the moon or go home situation.  The game doesn't have haters, the players that defend against facts have haters.

 

Some FFXIV players seem to be incredibly insecure and have to use inflated numbers or mislead in order to feel good about their game, if you feel the need to defend the game against facts then you aren't really in a good position to defend anything.

 

I played FFXI for 4 years and I never saw this level of insecurity before, FFXI players played their game and just took the game with however many subs or players it had.  They were not insecure if someone posted it actually had 100k subs instead of 500k

Well I'm really sorry that you HAVE to police the "facts" around here for everyone. Also you might want to work on not seeming like a hater. Because you sure do appear to be one when you come in here anytime some one says something incorrect and then proceed to call SE liars and deceivers every chance you get. To the underlined, I saw many FFXI people defend the game when they thought it was needed. Please don't bring pointless and unfounded comparisons to the discussion please.

I mean I really do second that the game is dead and gone but damn!!! All these high praises from other posts are unreal with highly faked interests / friendliness, is like to have mouthful of pure white sugar. That's totally sick!

Lol, yup your right it's totally dead and everyone here is paid by SE to say it's not. Wtf is wrong with some people >.>

It's possible the 1.5 mill addition is purely from Chinese sales I suppose, but it's not a given to be true and you are just assuming it to be the case with no evidenceThey have padded and mislead with figures before.

 

Hopefully the financial report will set the record straight, should that not be out by now btw?

Is this what you've been doing from the beginning? LMAO

Also to the underlined, when did they pad and mislead before? Please don't say it's the "Join XXX number of adventurers world wide" as they have in many interviews said those were registered account not active subs.

It has 500k players, never had 1million let alone 2 or 4 XD  Registered players are not subscribers.

The game sold 2 million copies from Spring 2014 to Spring 2015, they must be doing something right.

No, the figure does not include free trials.

I wouldnt argue with Scorpex-x, he's going to pull up an old article that has no relevancy to today's numbers and call it fact.

As opposed to a new article to back up that 4 million claim?  There isn't any.

He's actually right.  The latest info is 2.5 registered users, regardless if it's old or not.

Well that was a big claim you made there.

http://eu.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/053fde1539272640c4e2b362042d0d2686f228b1

Next time get your facts straight before spreading misinformation.

I'll admit i was wrong about the amount of registered users.  However, i did some google searching several days ago, and i never came across that article or any other claim that it was 4 million, so i was relying on my own searches.

We're talking about registered accounts though..  not subscribers.  That's the real issue here.  To claim that FFXIV has 4 million "players", which infers subscribers, is flat out wrong.

Well, if it means anything to you, the Heavensward trailer/opening ends with "Join Over 4 Million Adventurers Worldwide".

Those are all just registered accounts we don't know how many active subscribers there are really.

Agreed it is 500k or more not counting china, not 4 million but 500k or more is very healthy when they are all paying to play.

Well now they have sold over 4 million actually and we have no idea about the sub numbers. The underlined is pure speculation and IMO bad speculation at that.

Since Square are so untrustworthy with their figures and have been proven to be many times I'll wait and see on that 4 million figure (they will never say), again it says "accounts".  Free trial players make "accounts", beta players made "accounts".

 

Accounts do not mean subscribers, nor do they mean sales.  If you say otherwise show me on that page where it says so with a little *

 

When a company refuses to use specific terms like sales or subscribers it's because they are trying to fool you.

 

I say it has below average subscriber numbers because ESO peaked at 750k subscribers and was considered a failure, FFXIV never even got to that number at it's peak.

http://eu.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/053fde1539272640c4e2b362042d0d2686f228b1 Here you don't have to wait .

 

Is the word "sales" invisible?

 

Again you have to make an account/a registered account to play the beta for free, to play the free trial.

http://massivelyop.net/2015/02/26/final-fantasy-xiv-has-over-4-million-registered-accounts/

“Fledgling adventurers continue to arrive in Eorzea in droves,” says Square, “and we are pleased to announce that the realm is now home to four million registered accounts.” According to Square, that number represents global registered accounts and does not include trial accounts.

To celebrate, Final Fantasy XIV is hosting a free login campaign that starts Friday, February 27th, at 3:00 a.m. EST and runs through Monday, March 9th, at 4:00 a.m. EST. You’ll need to have previously purchased and registered your copy of A Realm Reborn and have an inactive account to be eligible. Alternatively there’s a 14-day Steam demo.

The four million figure represents a healthy increase from the 2.5 million reported by Square in December, 2014.

There you go, does not include trial accounts. :)

 

As I said, there is some form of padding going on there.

 

Square said they had 2.5million registered accounts in January and they magically went from 2.5 to 4 million in a few months?  If that was true they would of had to add more servers.

To play the free trial you have to make a registered account which plays on active servers.

Yup, with the sales in china being a big boost to the accounts being made during that time. I think it just took a while for them to get around to adding them to the numbers. To the underlined they said they don't count free trials so believe them or not it's up to you my friend. :)

Accounts do not mean subscribers, nor do they mean sales.  If you say otherwise show me on that page where it says so with a little *

 

When a company refuses to use specific terms like sales or subscribers it's because they are trying to fool you.

 

I say it has below average subscriber numbers because ESO peaked at 750k subscribers and was considered a failure, FFXIV never even got to that number at it's peak.

It has 500k players, never had 1million let alone 2 or 4 XD  Registered players are not subscribers.

The game sold 2 million copies from Spring 2014 to Spring 2015, they must be doing something right.

No, the figure does not include free trials.

I wouldnt argue with Scorpex-x, he's going to pull up an old article that has no relevancy to today's numbers and call it fact.

Oh, but that's the best part: calling him out on his BS.

You didn't call me on anything, I said registered users are not subscribers and that the game had never seen anywhere near 1 million subscribers.  I am correct, you know I am and as such you didn't argue the point.  You just made a different one.

 

Square recently responded to a games news site about this and responded with :

"Square Enix tells MCV that the actual number of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn paying subscribers sits at 500,000, with over 2.5m registered users." January 5th 2015 at 2:44AM GMT

 

If you want to argue sales, well ok.   A few things, 

1st. total sales of the game combined V1 and ARR sales together, so total sales are no impressing me that much.

2nd. The game is selling for almost nothing, and has done since launch.   With regular half price sales of $10 on steam, it's basically selling for bargain bin prices so lets not show off about sales figures too much.  The game is selling at a loss and always has.

3rd. Those are sales numbers for 3 regions when most games MMO sales figures are for NA and EU alone.

4th. A game like GW2 sold 3.5 million copies in one year for North America and Europe alone.

 

As I said, it's a run of the mill title.  It has below average subscriber numbers and average sales numbers for a very cheap title, it is also a game where the publishers use massive amounts of padding and try to confuse people with misleading numbers.  You know this as well as I do, the difference is that you try to make the game look better by using these padded and misleading numbers.  I just tell it like it is.

 

I'm not impressed with fake numbers to try impress people for this game anymore than I am on WoW when they state they had 100 million "players", the difference is that Blizzard don't use those numbers to try to confuse people into thinking they actually have 100 million subscribers.  Square and some of its fans do.

Well now they have sold over 4 million actually and we have no idea about the sub numbers. The underlined is pure speculation and IMO bad speculation at that.

The problem with this game is it forces you to run dungeons to get through the main storyline, if you are dps you can be in the queue for a very long time. Not only that, but while in the queue you cannot have your battle pet out to level because it considers you in a group (dumbest "feature" ever in an MMO).

So basically if you are not already 50 roll a tank or forget it. Oh, and if you roll a tank you better know every dungeon prior to running it, this community is terrible toward tanks.

Good luck with your game, the only people who will ever likely touch it again are people ready for this expansion. Yes author, I disagree 3 months is enough for a casual returning player to get ready for this.

 

Actually its only 2 months now. Sorry to here of your trouble in the game. I personally like the way story is set up with dungeons and have not had the problems in dutyfinder with my bard that you have had. Hope you find a game you like. :)
