Just a week late, not bad.

I see they have jumped on the Public Quest Bandwagon famously invented by Warhammer Online. Let's hope these are not as stupid and buggy as their recent incarnation in GW2. Maybe this time they have actual impact instead of being just quests that repeat themselves ad nauseum.

While I want to believe FFXIV will pull it off better, I can't see how any company can make "dynamic content" fun, for me at least.  Public events are just not really my thing.  FFXI really invented the concept not WAR as it had besieged and campaign, which I think is the best anyone has ever done.

 

There is just nothing at stake, you have to make these events spawn fairly regularly so you can't have them impact anything long term.  You also have to make them easy enough that random groups of strangers can beat them without talking to eachother or coordinating in any way (well you don't have to design it this way, but we all know this is how it usually works).

 

I just prefer "excluding other people" because I'm apparently a terrible elitist who happens to like planning and team work to be necessary for supposedly "epic" encounters rather than the zerg fest that typically is public events.

 

Again though while they most likely won't be the focus of my playtime, I hope FFXIV pulls them off well and I thnk if anyone can do it is SE given their track record with similar content in XI.

Another thread, please folks make use of the search function before creating another thread on this...if your late your late...

The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.
