The thing I found even more ridiculous is people fighting futuristic armies with guns and space ships with over sized hammers and swords and somehow not being turned into swiss cheese lol

Um... fantasy game with magic and... nevermind. I guess you guys never played ff8 or 7 because there is tons of this stuff in those games and other ff's

 
 
Awsome, very nice!

Yep, the combat in FFXIV is undoubtedly it's weakest quality (pvp included). Inspite of that I still had fun w/ the game for a while, but the OP is right. It's too simple.

It's not just about not having the renkai system from FFXI. (Which I loved btw, but it didn't work. Because people became too lazy to deal w/ it and just started doing TP burn groups instead).

But also the actual mechanics of the combat are incredibly simplistic. You don't really have to worry much about resistances, because the abilities are too simplified for that to work. Instead you have very vanilla 'buff X' type of damage modifiers, and defense modifiers. In fact the only real class synergy involves using these buffs (i.e. dragons buff pierc, which also buffs bard damage). But they are pretty much irrelevant outside of coil. Even then, you really only see such synergy w/ drg and ninja. And yet one of those aren't frequently chosen, because it's too difficult for most people to play them properly (drg).

 

This.

Ifrit, Lord of Inferno, EAT MY FIRE!

Ah, Yes the elemental wheel no thanks. Ifrit is weak to fire so optimal dps is ice over and over not to mention the balance issues that come with adding all that stuff, also complex does not equal fun to me . That being said I think the combat in XIV is average but the fun boss fights and the heavy focus on the trinity and teamwork in dungeons make up for it to me.

FFXI?

I'm an out and proud Apple fanboy. Get over it.

Apple could wrap dog shit in brushed aluminium and I'd buy it.

So, I guess I'm saying iOS. ;-)

 

you mean like the iOS 8? Seriously, this is why I use droid. To avoid becoming some arrogant, ignorant, trust-fund spending hipster who thinks because he's over-paid for a limited and harshly controlled OS that he's phone is superior. but hey at least you're cool and just like everyone else

 

Apple caters to the sheeple. It's like hearing people saying, "you should use a Mac, they don't have any virus or infection issues... that's because the majority of people don't use them.  Why bother hitting 10 people with a virus on Mac when you could hit 1000 people on Windows. 

 

what really grinds my gears is that Apple selling a Unix-based OS. Unix was meant to be free. Not glorified and stripped to shit and sold for as much as possible. Enjoy you're Apple Fanboy-ness, Enjoy having a phone so strictly controlled and limited in it's features and capabilities. Enjoy you're non-up-gradable desktops too. Oh you'd like to upgrade your Mac because it's hardware is out of date, fuck you, pay out the ass for a brand new one because we apple ain't giving you any chance to open your tower. 

Wow your a jerk. You sound like your the one wanting to be the cool kid with this I don't buy what the ignorant masses buy bull shit and treating people like less than human because they like something you don't.

Keepin my eye on this. As a player of both EQ and FFXI I would like to see how this plays out.
Over all, ESO if you want Pvp as your main focus or FFXIV if pve is. If you want my opinion go with FFXIV but I guess I am a little bias.

They didn't even have to find any external funding to develop this game, it's completely funded in-house. A clear sign of SE going bankrupt amirite?

Lmfao! This ^

 

Lmfao at this: http://www.gameskinny.com/5su9f/rationalizing-ffxiv-a-realm-reborns-subscription-model

Yup no investors all in house.

"Now, this method of funding is rather rare. According to Yoshida, only Square Enix and Blizzard fund their MMOs with their own money. So, what does this mean? This means there is a more stable income, staff doesn't have to worry about not getting paid, and there are no investors expecting large returns (although there are higher level employees in the company)."

In short: it will depend on which one will offer the best open world content and pvp. Instances and instanced pvp don't attract me.

Concur! Also, if I hear another person saying Lost Ark is just Diablo 3, I'm going to lose it. There's tons of articles saying that they are a MMORPG, not an ARPG. LE vs Lost Ark will be quite the battle. I honestly feel the first game to get out may be the victor.

From what I have been reading LE will be open world PvP and Lost Ark will not be. So I think both games will do well to the group of gamer's their shooting for.

I wrote this on another threat too. Lineage Eternal and Lost Ark are very different games actually. Lost Ark is a multiplayer arpg. But Lineage Eternal is a pure mmorpg. Lineage Eternal is a follow up for Lineage 1. In Lineage Eternal you will find massive open world maps which supports 500 players in the same area with open world pvp. You will find massive open world bosses, raids and much more. But Lost Ark is a game with limited open world content, arena pvp and dungeon crawler.

Yes, Lost Ark got better skill animations and skill effects. But they are limiting the gameplay itself. You can't create an open world game with these effects. That's why Lost Ark is very limited at this subject. It's not about performance issues. It's about gameplay as I sais before. You can't create a balanced and polish open world pvp system with that effects.

Of corse I will play both of them. But Lineage Eternal will be my another mmorpg which I'll play. On the other hand Lost Ark is more like Diablo 3 which I play when I want that type of gameplay.

You can think of it like this. Lineage 1 and Diablo was very different when they released. Lineage 1 was a pure mmorpg with an amazing pvp. On the other hand Diablo was an arpg which you can play multiplayer with limited gameplay. That's exactly the same difference with the Lineage Eternal and the Lost Ark.

Lost Ark is exactly what Diablo 3 should be and Lineage Eternal is a follow up for Lineage 1.

I don't know I believe Lost Ark is a full fledged MMO read this from Steparu.com 

http://steparu.com/previews/mmorpg/1661-lost-ark-online-mmorpg-preview-and-translations

 

Yes they have built a fine base for the game to build off with expansions and I'm looking foward to seeing how Heavensward works out and what it will bring to the table.

Top 5 in US only are:

1) WoW

2) GW2

3) Swtor

4) FFXIV

5) ESO

 

If I must choose one then it is game play of course, but graphics and aesthetics are very important to me as well. I hate it when a game looks like doo doo stick figures graphically or aesthetically.

There is nothing wrong with the grind. Mmorpg = grind. All we do is grind for something we want. That's all...
 
 

I never grind'ed in Wushu or ESO. Saying that is all an mmorpg is is selling the genre far too short. 

I played Wushu a lot in the past. And Wushu is all about grind too. Grind is not just about do something x321421 to gain an item. Wushu got one of the most grind based leveling system out there. Is it fun? Hell yeah. But it is pure grind. That's the reality. In Eso you're grinding for vr. That's a grind too. Even pvp has it's own grind. When I played War I grinded like hell for rr and renown gears with just doing pvp. Like I said. All mmos got grind in a way. That's the reality. And If you're not a rp player you have to do grind.

+1 for truth, every MMO has it in one way or another. The thing is picking a game where you have enough fun so that the you don't notice it.

 
 
FFXIV for me.
Have to admit this game has my interest peaked after watching this new trailer.

The WoW expansion and FFXIV were a success. Archeage is full of people complaining about it being Pay2Win, there are many more hackers and issues since everyone can make a new account in 2 seconds.

F2P used to be more free, now you are expected to pay money for every other thing, F2P games often combine subscriptions, they ask money for beta access, etc.  F2P is no longer free, unless you like being a second class citizen. I think people are starting to realise that F2P ends up being more expensive than P2P.

What makes you say FFXIV was a success enough to bunch it with WoW.  I haven't seen it do anything better than any other mmo that has launched within the last few years.  Certainly not in subscriber numbers or sales.

 

FFXIV has less subscribers and had less sales than games like swtor and gw2, it had less than Rift if you count that Rift was NA and EU and FFXIV is NA/EU/JP.

 

Are you going by the misleading information Square Enix have been giving out to class it as a success or just personal bias?

 

F2p Is free, you can play most f2p titles without spending anything at all and enjoy the game just fine.  They just offer things as optional aside from actually playing the game.  They are only more expensive if you choose to spend more.

Well Swtor did a nose dive and went f2p after a little over a year, Gw2 was already f2p and Rift went F2p in about 2 years and showed signs of doing so much before that . I like how you discount the Jp community and the fact that only a couple months ago china had a million preorders alone. Also its well over a year old and no sign of going f2p unlike almost all of the P2p themparks in the last ten years.

 

My initial point was that someone saying WoW and FFXIV are the only successful games is like saying WoW and TSW are the only successful mmo titles because they play TSW and are biased.   FFXIV has done nothing to set it apart from swtor, rift, tera, eso or any other mmo you can mention.  I'm sure you like the game, but it is in no way comparable to what WoW had done and is nowhere near the same league.

 

Every MMO is a success if it continues running but please stop with the nonsense impying that XIV is any better than any other title that has come out in the last 5 years, that's nonsense because numbers don't lie and with those numbers it's done nothing out of the ordinary and is just another mmo title with similar numbers to all the rest.

Accept all those games Had to go from P2P to FTP to remain successful, FFXIV hasn't and shows no sign of it so yeah must be doing something better huh?
