Never fails, can't make a good argument, resort to the white knight response.  Too funny.  lol

As well as not contributing anything but yet picking pieces to scrutinize... ;p

To call typing large paragraphs of utter BS contributing to anything is laughable.

Yeah I see that on both sides honestly. It sounds like the ever futile argument of old school vs new mmorpgs

I stopped reading when you basically said you hate conventional MMOs; it was no longer a post about FFXIV at that stage - it was a post about how you made most MMOs.

I played FFXIV while I was living in Japan. It was a pretty solid experience and I had looked forward to playing when I returned to Europe.. yeah.. only to find I had to now play with 130-200 ping on Canadian servers (European servers apparently) vs my 5-10 ping I had in Japan.

Until they host actual EU servers, there's plenty of other options out there for me.

No worries at the fan fest in london Yoshida said an EU Datacenter was in the works no eta though.

Honestly looking at the game makes me wish this would be the Final Fantasy mmo instead of A Realm Reborn. Final Fantasy's single player world is more impressive then the Final Fantasy mmo's world.

Well, Yeah it doesn't have 10k players in it like servers on XIV do so they can go nuts with the graphics and other things.

Did they say they are coming out with flying mounts in this expansion? If so this will be my new game to play once the expansion drops

Yes and there will be 6 maybe 7 mounts. However they will only be usable in the expansion areas which they are saying will be large and seamless.

oh here are some screen shots  http://www.allgamesbeta.com/2014/10/final-fantasy-xiv-heavensward-screens.html

I'm sure DRK will be able to damage just fine and in pvp too. But in dungeons and such it will play a tank role, meaning in addition to damage some of you abilities will generate enmity (threat/hate) and you must queue as a tank in duty finder, like warrior and paladin. DRK won't be the only class to come with the expansion though. They just added the rogue/ninja and at the EU fan festival the producer teased the next class with a 007 golden gun shirt (DRK was teased with a batman shirt at NA festival). Could go either way as ranged dps or healer. We will have to wait for the Tokyo festival in December to find out.

that is my problem. They tell me what role i will play based on what class i choose. I prefer ti have the freedom to choose my own role based on what jobs i combine, not playing the wrong class just because it has the role i want.

So basically the option is there you just don't like that option.

 

there are no options, if you want to be DK you are forced to be a tank. If you want to be a warrior, you are forced to be a tank, if you want to be a heavy plate dps you are forced to be Dragoon. There are no options, only one role per class. Im not asking for a change, just stating my reason why i havent resubbed. Class limitations is that reason.

I understand completely but there are options in the fact you switch weapons you switch rolls without switching characters. Now as I said I understand if you don't like this option but it is there.

Dark Knight should be the opposite of Paladin

Or be two sides of the same coin.

In my mind,  DK should be a healing role and it's completely absurd how the devs are pigeonholing me into a tank.   Either have DK as a healer, or give me the option of speccing into a healer/dps/ or tanking role.

 

It doesn't matter that FFXIV doesn't have specs... make it happen because this seems completely absurd to me.  Why should I have to be forced into tanking when I would enjoy healing as a DK?  Doesn't that sound so much better than this arbiturary decision to make DK a tank?  A DK was dps in FFXI, so why is it a tank in FFXIV?  ARn't these games pretty much the same and there's no consistency.

 

 

Well DRK is a DARK Knight meaning it uses DARK magic. Healing requires white magic.

I think his hole post was sarcasm.

Originally posted by Kajidourden I loved the game at first, but after finally "catching up" and being at the point where my character needed only either A) Raid gear or B) Zodiac gear I got very bored with it.   I realize that this is the new standard for MMOs now, but all of my MMO experience has been more old school ( the older versions of ffxi, EQ/EQ II, LOTRO, Vangaurd, etc).  I suppose I didn't really realize it until I got to that point...but it just became inane to me. Everything is simplified to the lowest common denominator, and literally the entire game revolves around Raiding, waiting for an expansion/patch, and repeating the process.  After playing the aforementioned games, I just couldn't see myself spending that much time on something so....un-dynamic. I will probably never get the kind of mmo I would want to play again, but I keep my eye open for new stuff as it comes out.  Current hope: EQN, but we'll see how that goes.
  It's funny you say that because when visiting the forums that's all they talk about is raiding and dungeons, the same thing in every Theme Park MMO. The game revolves around raiding and dungeons and the only way to progress is to do it. It's not the games fault, but the sub genre of of the MMO. Also, there is a thread on why people like FFXIV over WoW and the number one response was because it was Final Fantasy and second was the graphics are better.  
Ok what? Did you go off the first comment in the thread or what many people give other reason including those. Pure hyperbole at it's best.

 

What I should have said, the final fantasy theme and graphics have been the most stated reasons. I never said they never gave other reasons, but the most popular are those two.

Well there are many that are stated just as much such as: balance, class system as in all on one character, involved story and there were a couple of others as well.

But the standard of quality is just poor.  Even if you disagree with this now, just think about it. First time you entered COB, you faced a masterpiece of a mob aka ADS. Floating black ball and not just only one. Duplicates of it were used for the whole floor. A lazy (or rush) design effort only idiots fail to notice. and it doesnt stop there. Players get to fight Primal bosses. and then theres a hard mode and then an extremely hard mode. only a few mechanics were added to each level. and the whole instance is just fight one boss. no other mobs, no zone, no dungeon etc. just the one boss and a few dance moves with it and thats it. how little design effort were put into these just to lengthen the time players sub their games. so many duplicates , super lazy.

You shouldn't tell us to think while saying "standard of quality is poor" and "FFXIV" in the same paragraph. It will just blow on your face.

I'm sure most of us have realized the flaw in your thinking, but let me just make it explicit for the fun of it. Making completely new content takes time. Making altered content takes less time. There is only X time available. When you make completely new content, it takes a portion of the X time to do so. When you make altered content using existing assets, it takes a smaller portion of the X time to do so. Therefore you can make more altered content in the time it takes to make one new content. As the inevitable result, the developers can put out more content in the X time when they don't only develop new content with new assets.

Just because a patch is full of completely new assets and recycled assets, doesn't mean the X time available isn't being utilized. Nor does it mean that you can achieve the same amount of content using only new assets.

As the inevitable conclusion, as long as the developers are using X amount of time and resources (with X being the most resources possible) they are not "lazy". How they end up using said resources is of no concern whatsoever. In fact a middleground is usually perfect for a good balance of new and old content. 

By the way, I was talking of GW2 in the post. However fortunately this truth applies to every MMO in existence. Now, you can go back to playing the gramophone and reminiscing the good ol' days when everything was so much better and to tell kids to get off your lawn.

All games reuse assets whether it be mobs or bosses even dungeons. Now you want to talk about lazy? How about GW2 and no expansion or real sense of progression accept for story for years. 

Ps. FFXIV has plenty of bosses with different mechanics and looks. Also how does having instances with just bosses make the game lower grade. XI had them as well they were called burning circle notorious monsters and there were more of them.

These kids talk all about how others disregard/discredit their opinion but not realize they are the ones doing it. its a pity.

truth is different ppl like different things. some ppl like to eat junk food. others may prefer better food. but junk food does sell and hence is a success. doesnt hide the fact that despite some liking them the quality of the food is junk. 

 

FFXIV is a good B grade game. like a good B grade movie. same thing.

Love these jabs you put in here but hey to me XIV has some of the best quality and polish of any MMO's out there and is AAA production game. So if by B grade movie you mean Lord of the Rings then sure. :)

There are a lot of reasons but to me the most important ones are:

1) Very active Dev. team that listens.

2) A true FF game for the fans that have been wanting one for years.

3) CONTENT and lots of it. This game puts out more content then any MMO I have ever played.

Then it hit me, as much as I was enjoying myself. It was good to be back. Why am I going to pay for that amount of frustration? At the end of the day when I get home from work, I hop on a game to relieve any frustration and stress. I've had with the day, not add more to it.  

 

This type of thinking in what is killing gaming.

With no lows, no frustrations, no consequence for failure, you remove any real highs, pride, and feeling of elation in success.

You end up with a game that exists just to zone out to and not think about. Virtual knitting simulators. Something to do with your hands while the brain turns off.

Don't complain about it, rise to it and win. I promise it'll feel good.

 

 

Couldn't agree more.  

The Maat fight was one of the most memorable experiences in my history of MMO'ing, along with acquiring Sky and Sea access.  The reason they still sticks in my mind was the challenge of overcoming repeated failures.  It felt amazing finally completing them.

Agreed, if the game causes you stress, ask why?  Sometimes the answer lies within yourself and not the game. 

Or maybe it's just not his kinda game.

Damn wish you could edit screwed up thread titles. :/

Ps. Yeah mmorpg could be better with how this game is covered they have not written about some of the major patches or major events much either but do so on other AAA titles.

China had a million pre-orders so there has to be a million active subscribers.

Cause that's how the mmo business world works.

 

Please use a little more logic. Your claims are just as much "outside reality" as his.

Oh I'm sorry fixed that for ya and yes it is very possible that it is. ( ;

Already tryed it bra and to me it isn't XIV is but to each their own.
