Wow..... I love all the kids on this site thinking your new MMO was the worst launch ever. Sorry but no, this list is pretty much dead on. Now if Vanguard wasn't on the list I would have been worried, but every game that needed to be there is there. 

While MMOs tend to launch with problems in varying degrees the ones listed had them in SPADES. For example Aion was an atrocious launch for me, first was the endless queues, then I lagged like hell and couldn't stay connected. No one at NCsoft could help me and kept telling me it was MY end when I could play any other MMO just fine. So I went back to AoC. Which launched just great for me......

See what I mean? Some launches go very badly for some and fine for others. And THEN you have launches that go badly for everyone. lol... 

On the topic of housing I'd like to echo two previous posters, housing has been part of MMOs for a lot longer then most staple features from way back with Ultima Online and yet keeps getting ignored by those developers more interested in making games then actual online worlds. 

It's not a recent feature by any means, we just happen to have seen a small resurrection of it. However none of the newer MMOs has really hit the mark successfully like Ultima, Galaxies or even EQ2 and FFXI have. Honorable mention: Vanguard.

Its bascally world of warcraft in a final fantasy skin, nothing more, nothing less, you can mostly solo except some of the main story things usually dungeon related require a party, but other than that yeah its soloable, well endgame is of course party oriented, all I can suggest is learn to dodge stuff, or else people will think your a complete moron at endgame.

I'm guessing you're a complete moron at end game? You should have been dodging stuff..... A LOT earlier on.. That big circle on the floor... Don't stand in it.

This game requires you to move and be aware of your surroundings, you don't just sit there and DPS or cast spells, you launch attacks and more around, you get in the best position possible while avoiding AOE's or big ass fire balls ect... 

You can solo level any class in different ways, there's lots of side things to do apart from leveling but there are dungeons to go through for the main story quest line that you have to do in a group. However there's a group finder and it's now generally impossible to fail most dungeons due to echo. So don't be scared this game is easily one of the most accessible MMOs out there. 

Well I don't think I can convince you of anything but let me tell you why I  love this game. 


I adore stories first off, so I read every quest text. In FFXIV you have some delightfully written stories, it's a good idea to take the time to talk to NPC's and just soak in the story. If all you go is press accept and fetch things and not read what they say then you are losing on the part that makes the game special I think. Also a lot of NPC's in cities are hilarious, they actually interact together and there's some pretty cute moments. 

The first bit of the game leveling wise isn't going to be very exciting, though it IS fast. So if someone ^ is saying it's a chore, sorry but kids these days..... Try playing Lineage or FFXI or EQ back in the day.... It's not hard to level anything especially once you get used to the game. The more you play the more options to level up opens to you. Sure there's FATEs and quests, but there's dungeon roulette (after you unlock the dungeons), primals, beastmen tribes, treasure maps... PvP I have no idea how that works but it's there. 

So really my advice is to start looking at the story, that is the strength of every Final Fantasy. If that is not your bag there are plenty of other MMOs that are less story driven and more to the point. Though honestly every MMO is basically the same thing, the key is to find the one that appeals to you most. FFXIV is beautifully crafted, but you do have to pay attention to the world. 

Armor and weapons are given to you through the quests and main story, and leves. If you are 15 and have not being doing a few leves you should. This is where I got geared on my first character. There's no reason for you to be 15 and have a level 5 weapon. There's also armor shops in camps and in cities and do compare prices from the shops to the AH, some peeps have been retarded and charged less on the AH then in game NPC's for low level goods.... (rolls eyes) 

If you like crafting and gathering, I'd recommend starting out as a botanist and miner and sell your stuff at the AH, then you can delve in crafting and gather your own mats. Level 50 gatherers can also mine rare nodes that can be sold for a good amount. 

Just take your time and enjoy the game, if you trying to figure it out too hard too early I bet you are missing out on just the pure fun of adventuring. There's a lot to do in this game and once you get going it's goes fast! Remember these games started out as Role Playing Games. So sit back and play, it's not a job, it's a place to relax and have fun. 


Excited for that short Miqo'te hair, I like to keep her hair the same as mine and it's a pretty darned short pixie. Finally adding paypal, it's about time! I know a lot of people happy about that. 



I felt like this housing news was a blow to my expectations as this is what I was waiting on for over a year. Being a 1.0 player and having been sold on the sanboxy aspects that the original game was supposed to bring, it seems like the dream of having my garden patch with chocobo stable is just never going to happen. 

However making gil is actually not that hard if you put your mind to it so that's what I am doing now. Crafting my little soul out. XD By the time I can raise enough funds there should be a nice small housing plot available. I've waiting this long a bit longer won't kill me I guess. 

I will say I was hoping that personal housing would have it's own wards, maybe in other places like Costa Del Sol for example, or even if they had to go EQ2's way and just have doors which leads to instanced rooms in the cities or something. Like the FFXI mog houses. I think honestly that would have gone over better then this. 

But oh well. /shrug

Barely anyone reads this site from the community, I would direct your linkshell search to the Besaid server forums on the official site, or for better results. :)


 Everyone that plays the game doesn't like where this game is going? Really? No, to be more accurate there's a portion of players who were Tanaka supporters who loathe what is being done to the game, a portion who wanted to see changes since launch loving what Yoshi is doing, and a portion in the middle who like some things from Tanaka's time and some things coming or done by Yoshi.

If you'd like me to address your feedback, cut it with the non-constructive comments (e.g. insinuating the review is a "troll attempt" by the author).

Again, we appreciate your frustration, but we'll most certainly be looking at the game again at some point this year. At the very least, we'll be taking a look at how 1.18 has affected the game.


Except that 1.18 is only the begninning of the revamp and will not be enough to illustrate where this game is 



So keep waiting, and waiting, and waiting? You got their answer. This review was scheduled long before it was actually written. The reviewer probably started writing when those "changes" were still rumours. I'm sorry to say, but nobody can ever tell if something is going to have a positive reception until it's been released. You should create lots of buzz. FFXIV is heading in the right direction and it has a big heart and only time can tell whether or not that is good enough.

Commenters are encouraged to share their opinion and disagree to the highest degree. What's not acceptable (and what MikeB has interated 3? times already in this thread, excluding damage control) is that baiting, trolling, harrassing, talking down, etc., is not acceptable. I don't know what the official forums for SE allow but it's a tad different here if those concepts are new to those who have jumped from there to here.


 I didn't start really freaking out until someone posted a quote from the admin saying that they would WAIT to review the game until changes to the game were made, I gathered he took the new dev team leadership into consideration when deciding this. But THEN he allows a review to be published JUST before the START of those changes are made??? My initial reaction was disappointment, then I wanted to add a few things that were not in the article and then I was just confused. 

This is my problem. I hope I made it clearer. 

{mod edit}

EDIT: For those saying that the site should not WAIT to do a review, let's be clear we all AGREE on this. They should have done a review RIGHT AWAY. But they chose not to, this is what is suspect or odd to many.

Except that 1.18 is only the begninning of the revamp and will not be enough to illustrate where this game is going. I'd wait until next year. Or at least this winter. What I do know is that if everything goes the way it's planned out this time next year this will be a whole new game and unfortunally not many people will be aware. Or perhaps FFXIV fans should create their own buzz.. 

But seems this is your very least I don't expect a whole lot. Part of this problem isn't your site's fault but SE who should have known better to launch this when it did but it does make me sad this site only caters to some games. Also apparently your commenters aren't allowed to disagree with each other. Now I am reminded of the real reason why I left this place. 

Goodbye again

Everything that you said regarding polygon  and texture reslution is sitll an opinion unless you have some insider information regarding TERA and GW2 engines and there future limitations but you do not.

It's not an opinion it is very much fact. What is opinion is whether such things are relevant to player enjoyment. It's relevant to certain players but not all, probably not most. 

GW1 was always limited by it's engine, while it looked gorgeous for the first 2 years it quickly aged, Abriael seems to think GW2 will be similar, this isn't speculation, this is fact. Aion is in the same boat, it will age a lot faster then FFXIV because it's engine only puts out so much. I don't know about TERA because I don't care about that game. Rule of thumb is that if a game is hard to run when it first launches it's going to age very well in terms of graphics while others that can be played by everyone won't. 

These are either things you approve of or do not, there are reasons on both sides why one approach is better then the other. I personally prefer longevity. 

Anyway 1.18 also brings settlements!! These are the new quest hubs we believe, I didn't even expect them until later so this is very nice. XD Yay! 

As to the subject of this thread being trolled, I guess it's a good indication that people are genuinely upset about this article and perhaps could take this into consideration next time they launch reviews. Timing is everything. 

Jut woke up and saw this! I wasn't expecting to see this in 1.18 (?) so it certainly is very nice. Adding more things to the map is always going to be a good thing. Quest hubs like other MMOs is making me so very happy, I wanted quests since launch and now it looks like I'm getting served pretty soon FINALLY! 

If you had followed the thread you'd know that we're not arguing wether the game deserves the score, I tink we all agree on that, we're arguing why it's coming NOW???

It's an important patch that will (ostensibly) fix and improve things that need fixing and improving. It's an important step in the right direction.

It's not a miracle patch.

I'm just going ahead and requoting that because this really should be read a few more times...XD

Is there a better rationale for not exercising their due diligence and reviewing this title on the same type of schedule as every other?  Someone stopped a review from coming out all this time.  Someone made that call.  I just want to know why.

Yes well honestly at this point so do I. The reasons they gave does not satisfy me one bit. Guesses are; they are posting it so they can post an updated review later outlining what's different, or they just don't care.

Personally I think it's the latter. But I guess we'll see. 

edit: Yes an extensive beta where ALL the features complained about here were given MUCH feedback on and was never addressed and pushed aside by fans and the old dev team alike. Game launches, is a bad mess, SE goes WTH Tanaka where's your promised content and additiions? Tanaka's like I got nothing. Enters Yoshi: "Hmmm this whole thing's design is crazy, let's redo it!!" 

10 months later, here we are. On the brink of things changing and no one who isn't actively following the game would never know because bloggers who haven't played the game since launch go ahead and post this! 

Oh well... Here's to hoping there's a better assesment come winter/spring. And if not well there's better sites out there anyway. I'm not even sure why I posted all day today I swear this place is like crack.... Once you post you can't stoooop.

and tell me what's so inaccurate about what was said here. :) New content aside (again, they're going to post a followup), it's all accurate.

I play all the time and I've already posted what I wanted/needed to say I'm not going to play your prove me wrong game sorry lol.. 


edit: Maybe innacurate was a bad choice of words, I'll give  you that, how about incomplete? Misinformed? 

Originally posted by Unlight


When a game gets released, the product is on the market and it should be your job to give your readers a fair assessment of what's been put out there, clamoring for their gaming dollars.  The kind of special treatment extended to this game only makes me wonder why an honest review was verboten all this time.  Is someone in  MMORPG's executive a big FF franchise fan?

And BOOM headshot. This is exactly why this review is coming out at a bad time. People who know nothing will take it as truth and post this ^^^. 

No they are not fans, FF fans wouldn't post something so innacurate. :/

Also the reviewer only had PUG rank 1 and physical lvl r2, which proves to me he barely played it

To be fair we don't really know that, that's just when they took those screenshots. Though by reading the article I don't think they got much beyond level 12 ish. 


@Ikeda *points at my post count* I've been away a while but I used to a 5 star elite member. XD

This game does not need patches, it needs a complete rewrite.  Someone in a prior post said it best, this game takes the word tedious and puts an exclamation mark on it, and the upcoming patch changes that not at all. 

Yeah..... Which what they are doing? Which is why the patches have been so small so far? Which is why there's grounds to be excited for 1.18 because we're finally going to see some of the fruits of this rewrite actually happen, finally?? 

Really guys if you do not know why the game is where it's at and can't spend the time reading the information helpfully posted in this thread, why are you still posting? :P 

Muah ha I just edited my post !! :) You're welcome.
