I do think it's a parallel universe to Vanadiel. I don't think it's the future, since it has a different name, nor do I think there will be any direct connection to FFXI.

Tactics and XII were different eras of Ivalice, but they were both still called Ivalice.

All I can say is that my whole being is wishing for some sort of character transfer.

Sincerely.

Ken.

Keeping the thread 99.9% Sage pure.

Agree with Cat. While it may not be tied to any end-date for WotG, I do think that there will be a "indirect connection" between the two universes. As has been suggested, probably the various variations of Ivalice.

It's going to be more fun that way anyway, gives us an opportunity to see familiar faces and places in a slightly new light. That's something that SE has always done, I don't see it stopping now.

As much as some may want it, character transfer with skills/job/items is probably not going to happen. I can see an incentive for being a current FFXI subscriber, but SE wants to expand the subscriber base. Giving an advantage to a huge population of subscribers is not going to help that at all.

Square one, Day one, I'm there!

I would love to take Vip over to XIV, but I doubt it will happen. I will just name my character Vipreubaud.

Kinda funny, since it was not a name I chose, I let the game choose the name. But it has grown on me.

He went to sleep early.

Back on topic, things and events happening on FFXI aren't affecting FFXIV, they are separate games, after all. But, character transfers or not, there will be a Hume Beastmaster named Valiarius on FFXIV (there will exist Beastmasters, if not, SE will have **** to pay).

The only thing that makes less sense than being able to transfer your character to this new game, is to require you to beat the latest expansion of a seven-year old MMO in order to even play the new one.

Well, I wonder if people called our planet "Earth" before the last ice age.

I do hope that SE doesn't go all commie on us and make us pay $100 for a character transfer, and just... you know... sorta link it into the WoTG final mission... As for me, why not start over, lol. Already burned 6 years of my life on that character... I can spend at least another 4.

I do expect they'll keep the worlds separate, but I can't deny that it would be awfully cool to see some subtle connections.

Like, say, there's an ancient forest zone somewhere with the worn down foundations of some stone walls among the trees. Six months after release, somebody realizes that the pattern of the walls matches the layout of San D'Oria. It's the ruins of the city. No direct references to that in the game -- just have it there for us to appreciate.

Yeah, I'll still be Catwho. I'll be an alternate universe version of myself.

Names can change. Take our history for example. Just until recently Iran was called Persia, Sri Lanka was Ceylon, Tailand was Siam and Myanmar used to be called Burma.

Besides, we don't really know anything about Eorzea. It could be another continent on the same planet, it could be a different planet or it could even be the moon.

I'm not saying your wrong...just saying it could be anything really.


Heck this could very well be the distant past.
