that actually worked one me the last time
Guess this would have been simplier if they explain how the polls were going to be used. And if they most votes isn't going to be the direction they go then maybe add more clear cut options instead of several that are somewhat in the middle.
Hope this makes any sense just got off a week of grave shifts so who knows.
They have said it is a stand alone MMO. But a little of features of either game is known at this point.

Seems like this is likely a thread aimed are starting over the same back and forth about the art style as several others.
Like others here I don't care about them either way. I am more concerns about allot of the features that have been mention. Because if they diliver on that front i would play i even if it had eq1 graphics.
Am actually for race class limitations, As in most fantasy i have come across a dwarf mage is not a common sight. But I do keep seeing posts say this is not a sandbox game. so I did alittle searching as it is sounding more and more like the freedom you had in UO which is and was one of the best sandbox games.
Techopedia explains Sandbox
Gamers play sandbox games according to their preference. These games include structured elements - such as mini-games, tasks, submissions and storylines - that may be ignored by gamers. In fact, the sandbox game's nonlinear nature creates storyline challenges for game designers. For this reason, tasks and side missions usually follow a progression, where tasks are unlocked upon successful task completion.

I think this is wonderful news
Nether has a confirm release date. Although ESO has a est release quarter of 2014 I believe. EQN has not given any clues or ideas about there schedule, heck at this point we are all just guessing at the stage of development they are in.
ESOs art style is very popular, EQNs not so much.

Threads like these crack me up. If you do not like a game don't play it. if you want to design a game start a business and go do it.
Its like walking into wendy's and tell them you don't like there meals so can they make you something from burger king.
People always want more and our culture carters to this.
Personally I like the look but hated the way wow looked when it was realeased for the same reasons that are being pointed out here. I ended up playing eq2 ( which launched at about the same time) and i think stuck with eq2 for 4-5 months then a friend let me play wow and I never looked back. That thought me one thing...... play the game before you judge it

I am waiting until I can make a character on a server of my choosing so likely several months away.
nevermind just went to log in and its forcing me to register again which i cannot as my code is already used and when I log on the website it tells me I have no characters. I'm gonna just take this as a sign that should pass all together
I love the movements it makes you appear more fluid and apart of the surroundings.
Also it seems at least for myself it fits well in a fantasy game. Most story's and books I have read while have characters with above normal agility or enchanted boots etc etc.

Currently this is how allot of gamers are. We get hyped up over something new but get tired of it just as fast.
There's not enough information out there to give any kind of educated guess. We know its been in development for years, we also know Landmarks was not planned.
Winter 2014 is my hope but I have nothing to really back that time frame.
But also ifs not a game i want to see them rush. From the tiny bit we have been told its got some really good ideas ( or features who knows)
Well remember its got several layers up and down to go so even a standard map is several time larger than it appears

4.1 FINAL FANTASY XIV Subscription Fees. In order to access SQUAREENIX’s servers to play the Game, you must agree to a recurring subscription (“Subscription”)with a minimum subscription term of 30 days, and pay a recurring subscriptionfee (“FFXIV Subscription Fee”). Square Enix may offerdifferent subscription plans in its sole discretion. Further, Square Enix mayoffer you the chance to purchase additional features for your FFXIV ServiceAccount, which we call “Add-ons” or “Options.” Add-ons may be subject to either additional recurring feesor one-time fees. A “Recurring Fee” is a fee that will becharged on a recurring basis until you terminate your subscription. A “One-TimeFee” is fee that is only charged once. All fee rates will be posted at http://sqex.to/ffxiv.na.fees andany changes to Recurring Fee rates will be posted with 30 days’ advance noticeand notice will be provided to the Game community. Square Enix maychange fee rates at any time in its sole discretion, and will use reasonable effortsto notify you at least 30 days in advance of any changes to any Recurring Fees.All FFXIV Subscription Fees are billed in advance. All FFXIVSubscription Fees are non-refundable, with the limited exception in Section 4.7below.
4.2 Thirty Days of Free Play PerService Account Per Platform. For all new FFXIV Service Accounts,the first 30 days of gameplay (“Free Period”) is included withyour purchase of the Licensed Software in new, unopened (or uninstalled,for digital downloads) condition from an authorized vendor. After theFree Period has ended, you have no further rights to access Square Enix’sservers unless you pay the subscription fee in accordance with the terms hereinor Square Enix otherwise agrees to provide you with access to its servers. If you are accidently charged within the Free Period, please contact the SquareEnix Support Center at http://sqex.to/ffxiv.na.support for a refund upon confirmation. The 30 days of free gameplay will NOT beprovided to any existing FFXIV Service Accounts that subsequently purchase theLicensed Software on the same platform. In other words, if you are creating anew FFXIV Service Account and purchase the PC version of the Licensed Software,you will receive the Free Period. If you subsequently purchase and install asecond copy of the PC Version, then you will not receive another FreePeriod on your existing FFXIV Service Account, but you will receive the free 30days if you create a new FFXIV Service Account. If you subsequentlypurchase a PlayStation version of the Licensed Software, then you willreceive another Free Period on you existing FFXIV Service Account.
4.3 Recurring Subscription. When the Free Period ends, all players who choose to continue playing the Gamewill automatically become subject to a recurring subscription. Therecurring FFXIV Subscription Fee will be charged in full at thebeginning of each billing cycle (“Billing Cycle”). BillingCycles are discussed in Section 4.4 below. Square Enix may provide priornotice of an impending charge during the login process or via email to yourregistered email account. Subject to the limited exception for initial chargesfor certain new fees explained in Section 4.3(a), all Recurring Fees will becombined in a single FFXIV Subscription Fee billed on the same date, regardlessof when in the Billing Cycle any modifications were made to the FFXIV ServiceAccount (such as adding a new Recurring Fee).
Ifyou select a longer Billing Cycle, the FFXIV Subscription Fee charged at thebeginning of each Billing Cycle will include the entire covered term (meaning,if you choose a 90-day Billing Cycle, you will pay for all 90 days atonce). All charges will be automatically charged to your preselectedpayment method, and once you have been charged for a given Billing Cycle, thatcharge is non-refundable, subject to the limited exception inSection 4.7 below. You agree to pay the appropriate amount each BillingCycle until you deactivate your FFXIV Service Account by following theprocedures explained at http://sqex.to/ffxiv.na.cancel. If you deactivated before the beginning of the next Billing Cycle, yet werebilled for the next Billing Cycle, please contact the Square Enix SupportCenter at http://sqex.to/ffxiv.na.support fora refund upon confirmation.
(a) ProRata Billing for Recurring Fees During Billing Cycle. If you add a new Recurring Fee in the middle of a Billing Cycle, the currentBilling Cycle’s charge for that additional Recurring Fee will be adjusted on a prorata basis and charged immediately, subject to our minimum transaction fee. For example, if you add an Add-on that is subject to a Recurring Fee on the 15thday of a 90-day Billing Cycle, you will be billed for the remaining 76 days inyour 90-day Billing Cycle. Please note that the minimum transactionfee allowed by our billing system for credit card/debit card users at any timeis currently USD$1.00 per transaction (and subject to change upon notice toyou), even if the prorated charge for would otherwise be less than USD$1.00. For example, if the prorated initial Recurring Fee is only USD$0.57for, you will be charged USD$1.00.
(b) One-timeFees Billed Immediately. Any One-Time Fees that you incur willbe immediately charged to your preselected payment method, and arenon-refundable except as set forth in Section 4.7.
4.4 Billing Cycles. A single Billing Cycle will apply to all Recurring Fees. When you firstregister to play the Game or first commit to a Subscription, you will be givenan opportunity to increase the default 30-day Billing Cycle to 60 days or 90days. If you choose to increase the length of your Billing Cycle, youwill be rewarded with a reduced FFXIV Subscription Fee. Please notethat you are only receiving a discounted monthly FFXIV Subscription Fee becauseyou are agreeing to prepay for a longer period, and no refunds will begiven if you choose to stop playing the Game before the prepaid period ends. You should not change the default 30-day Billing Cycle unless you are preparedto prepay for the longer Billing Cycle.
4.5 Changes to Billing Cycles. You may increase or decrease the length of subsequent Billing Cycles at anytime. However, the change will not take place until the end of thecurrent Billing Cycle. For example, if you agree to a 90-day BillingCycle and decide 15 days later to reduce it to a 30-day Billing Cycle, thechange will not occur until the 90-day Billing Cycle has ended, at which time,you will be switched to a 30-day Billing Cycle.
4.6 Failed Transactions. If Square Enix’s attempt to charge/debit your preselected payment method fails,you may lose access to the Game when your Subscription expires until youresolve the issue. If you have lost access, your next Billing Cycle willbegin on the date you successfully pay. Square Enix does not charge latefees or interest for access to the Game.
4.7 Refunds in Exceptional CircumstancesOnly. The entirety of your FFXIV Subscription Fee is applied by Square Enix to the FFXIVService Account on the day that it is charged. All charges related to theGame are non-refundable unless third-party criminal activity is involved, asdetermined by Square Enix. Therefore, if you deactivate your FFXIVService Account in the middle of a 90-day Billing Cycle, you will not receive arefund for the remainder of the Billing Cycle, but may continue to play theGame until the Billing Cycle ends.
Notwithstandingthe foregoing, if Square Enix revises the License Agreement or this UserAgreement and you reject either when they are first presented to you foracceptance, you will be required to deactivate your FFXIV Service Account andwill immediately lose access to the Game. In such circumstances, uponrequest, and if the revision was material, Square Enix may refund you a prorata portion of the most recently-billed FFXIV Subscription Fee. In orderto combat fraud, Square Enix will only issue these extraordinary refunds to thepayment method(s) used for the relevant transaction(s).
4.8 Deactivation of Subscription. You may deactivate your FFXIV Service Account and/or any individual RecurringFees at any time. Other than the exception explained in Section 4.3(a), nofurther billing related to the deactivated FFXIV Service Account will occuruntil you reactivate by following the procedures explained at http://sqex.to/ffxiv.na.support. Ifyou believe that you have been accidently charged by Square Enix after youdeactivated, please contact the Square Enix Support Center at http://sqex.to/ffxiv.na.support fora refund upon confirmation.
4.9 Reactivationof FFXIV Service Account. You may reactivate your FFXIVService Account at any time, so long as the Game is still made available by SquareEnix and account-related data has not been deleted or corrupted. If youreactivate your FFXIV Service Account prior to the end of the current BillingCycle (meaning, while you still have access), you will retain youroriginal Billing Cycle and will not have to pay another FFXIV Subscription Feefor that period. Otherwise, your new Billing Cycle will commence on orabout the first day you reactivate your FFXIV Service Account (subject toadjustment by Square Enix).

Except for ExcludedDisputes (as defined below in Section 10.5), if any controversy, allegation, orclaim arises out of or relates to the Game, the Licensed Software, this FFXIVUser Agreement, or any additional terms, whether heretofore or hereafterarising (collectively, “Dispute”), or to any of Square Enix’sactual or alleged intellectual property rights, then you and we agree to send awritten notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute,along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent toyou based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. Ifno such information exists or if such information is not current, or if for anyreason you do not respond to us within four (4) weeks of the date we sent thenotice, then we have no further obligation under this Section 10.2. Yournotice to us must be sent to: Square Enix, Inc., Attn: Legal Dept., 999N. Sepulveda Blvd. 3rd Floor, El Segundo, CA 90245. For a period of sixty(60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Square Enixand you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute,though nothing will require either you or Square Enix to resolve the Dispute onterms with respect to which you and Square Enix, in each of our solediscretion, are not comfortable.
10.3 Second: Forums for Alternative Dispute Resolution.
(a)Arbitration. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section 10.2 within sixty (60)days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the Dispute toformal arbitration on an individual basis in accordance with this Section 10.3.
Uponexpiration of the applicable sixty-day period and to the fullest extentpermitted by applicable law, a Dispute will be resolved solely by bindingarbitration on an individual basis in accordance with the then-currentCommercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If you prevail in your claim against Square Enix, then Square Enix shall payall arbitration fees. Square Enix agrees that you may appear at any arbitrationproceeding by telephone, unless the amount in controversy is $10,000 or more.If the Dispute has a claimed value of not more than $250,000, then thearbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who isa retired judge or a lawyer with not less than fifteen (15) years experience asa practicing member of the bar in the substantive practice area related to theDispute, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA'sSupplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. If the Disputehas a claimed value of more than $250,000, or if Square Enix elects in its solediscretion to bear the costs of arbitration in excess of those that would occurfor a proceeding before a single neutral arbitrator, then the arbitration willbe heard and determined by a three-member panel, with one member to be selectedby each party and the third (who will be chair of the panel) selected by thetwo party-appointed members or by the AAA in accordance with the CommercialArbitration Rules. The arbitrator or arbitration panel, as the case maybe, will apply applicable law and the provisions of this FFXIV User Agreement andany additional terms, will determine any Dispute according to the applicablelaw and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue areasoned award.
Youcan obtain AAA procedures, rules, and fee information as follows:
AAA: 800.778.7879 http://www.adr.org/
(b)Nature,Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution. Inarbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of FFXIV UserAgreement (and any additional terms) and can award the prevailing party damagesand other relief (including attorneys’ fees). However, WITH ARBITRATION(A) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (B) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATIONOUTCOME ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (C) JUDICIAL REVIEW OFTHE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration willhave the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or otheradvocate of their choosing. Any arbitration proceeding shall be held at avenue in Los Angeles, CA. Square Enix agrees that you may appear at anyarbitration proceeding by telephone, unless the amount in controversy is$10,000 or more, in which case the arbitrator may require you to travel to LosAngeles at your own expense. You and we will pay the administrative andarbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitrationrules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Square Enix to pay agreater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 10 tobe enforceable, then Square Enix will have the right to elect to pay the feesand costs and proceed to arbitration. If you prevail in your claimagainst Square Enix, then Square Enix agrees to reimburse you for allarbitration fees and your reasonable, documented travel expenses (if any)incurred to attend arbitration hearings where your physical presence isrequired by the arbitrator. Discovery will be permitted pursuant to theapplicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of awritten statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute, andmust provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which thedecision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitrationdecision and award (if any) may be entered in or by any court that hasjurisdiction over the parties pursuant to Section 9 of the Federal ArbitrationAct.
10.4 LimitedTime to File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTEDBY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE AGAINST SQUARE ENIX, THENYOU MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 10.2)WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES, OR ELSE IT SHALL BE FOREVERBARRED.

10.6 Small Claims Matters Are Excluded from Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claim ofDisputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court, subject to Section10.8.
10.7 No Class Action Matters. Disputes will be arbitrated only on anindividual basis and will not be consolidated with any other arbitration orother proceeding that involves any claim or controversy of any otherparty. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction orany arbitrator selected pursuant to Section 10.3 holds that this restriction isunconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in Section 10.3 toarbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in courtpursuant to Section 10.8.
10.8 Federal and State Courts in Los Angeles. Except to the extent thatarbitration is required in Section 10.3, and except as to the enforcement ofany arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to anyDispute or Excluded Dispute may only be instituted in state or federal court inLos Angeles County, California.
