They pretty much took everything that's great in FFXI/FFXIV and put it in a much better and easier to use client.

Yoshi has already confirmed that if you had an activated copy of the game they you automatically get 30 days free play on 2.0 ARR 

 

But I am sure more will become known after the 14th.....

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

I actually didn't know this... I was willing to give them some cash to try it.

Nice, thanks for info.

Ty Obi, I think it is great that this company was willing to admit a mistake, and rework the game they way they are doing.  I have been following it, so I was aware of the offers for people who had purchased the game, hiowever I did not purchase the game.  I was all set too,  but changed my mind after beta - it was that bad sadly.  I have no problem paying for a game that i will play :) - but at the time the game was unplayable. here's hoping for 2.0!

No, I never bought it.  Tried it at the end of beta, and not buying this "reborn" bit will be enough of an improvement to risk the box price on.  Not without some sort of trial, to see what they've done, first.

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

I never played XI.  Is it any fun?  Thinking of trying it out, just because I think I've tried out most others.

If the game supports old school elements then.... Hell, I'll forgive the lack of PvP just to find a nice challenging group based MMO.

 

I haven't done any research yet so maybe the current FF XI fans can help me answer a couple questions...

 

1)  Can players easily solo their way to max level and not need to rely on other players, like some lame sinlge player PRG / Multiplayer Lobby MMO ?

2)  Are there any type of significant Death penalties besides the standard 2 copper repairs and running 60 seconds back to where you died ?

3)  Are there character classes that have useful unique abiltities that can add to the strength of a well played team/group,  or is everything homogonized so basically all the classes are the same except for the character models ?

4)  Is the character progression well scaled to give you consisent slow progression over 6 month - 1 year playing about 15 hours / week  , or is progression some XP jackpot where everything you do awards XP so fast that you are max level in a matter of a few weeks ?

5)  Are the MOBs and Dungeons challenging , or can you win by just spamming 3 keys while watching TV ?

There are so many things that were done poorly in this game I cant believe the things they plan to change or add will be implemented any better than the original ones.

Plus this has to be one of the worst performing game engines I have ever seen.  No matter how much horsepower or graphics processing you through at it it just stumbles along.  That alone makes the game unplayable.

This game should of been flushed, I wonder whos continuing to pour money into it and why.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

Most likely? No. 

 

I'm sorry, I just can't get over my hatred they turned the class sytem into weapon based. Why would you do that? It makes the classes feel so much less worth wild and just so much more bland. FF11 for me if I want to play an FF online game.

I voted yes. Had bought the CE when the game launched and although it failed, I've been playing it on and off every now and then and seen the major changes that SE made to the game (FFXIV). Seeing how dedicated the developers have been towards improving the game, I can only show my respect by giving 2.0 a chance as well. Very few developers and studios have the balls to admit they failed, support the game for free for a year and improve the game until they feel happy enough to charge a sub again.  If more developers were like that, I don't think I'd be as cynical towards the MMORPG industry.

 

Anyway, yes I'll be giving FFXIV-ARR a shot when it launches. I highly doubt I'll be able to get into the Alpha to try it out before but oh well, maybe in Beta.

They've pretty much remade the game from scratch. Only the theme and the graphics engine is same as in the first release. However I had zero issues with the engine running an up-to-date rig. In all honesty S-E has one of the best engines out there and they are constantly developing the luminous engine.

Because the developers are really dedicated to improve the game and there's a huge company behind them I don't see any reason why FFXIV: ARR wouldn't be a massive hit.

S-E is probably the only company to take a failed MMORPG and turned it to a polished gem.

there needs to be an option "I'm too cheap to pay a sub" for these polls.

Money has to come from somewhere, either cash shop or subscription.  By taking this stance you are saying "I would rather have others support the game than myself".

Simple minds jump to silly conclusions.  I'm not too cheap to pay a sub.  I'm currently subbed to RIFT by the year.  It's not that I can't afford it, but that I think the revenue model is poor and have decided to stop supporting it.

If a subscription game truly offered the game for the subscription then I would go back to supporting it.  But they don't do that now anymore do they.  Every sub based game now currently supplements their revenue by RMT of some sort (whether it is an additional cash shop, bonus account packs, in game gold, etc).

Sub games typically cost between $100 to $180 / year for the sub plus an additonal $60 to $100 / year in additional content (xpacs, gold, items, etc).  I usually only spend $45 to $150 / year in a F2P game.  Sub games no longer offer a superior gaming experience and they double dip.  EVE is probably the only major game that offers the full meal deal for the subscription and even they supplement their revenue with ISK sales.

I haven't played RIFT for a couple months now so my sub money is wasted.  My sub doesn't include the upcoming expansion so I have to shell out even more.  My F2P and B2P games don't require that.  If the game is good and/or I like it, then I spend cash on it.  In sub based game I spend the cash up front and hope it's money well spent.

Next time try and think through your herp before you derp and stop jumping to conclusions.

Curse you AquaScum!

Game is going to be great, I'm playing now, cant wait for ARR and anyone into MMOs should give it a go. I played XI over 6 years and havent looked back since I restarted XIV. The new dev team is on point!

I plan on it, although it'll be rough to wrestle me away from WoW or Rift, they're my 2 subscriptions right now and I love them.
