A blatant ripoff from wow? Unbelievable new race?Follow

For seriousness guyz. It's totally clear to me that the crew working behind FFXIV is running out of original ideas and just drawing upon WoW's success. I mean just look at the new logo!

Ok, now that the sillyness is out of the way. Can we please stop flooding the real discussion threads with QQing (Crying) about who's MMO has the bigger epeen? It's inevitable that FFXIV is going to take at least SOME ideas from an already existing mmo. In fact they already have stated they like the idea of having more ways to level, and allow for solo play (sound familiar?). But rest assured, the interviews sounded like they wanted to make **** sure that you will get a Final Fantasy game, not a clone of another game.

And finally, let's keep in mind this is an open forum for both WoW, WAR, FFXI, and any other excited MMO fan out there who is just as pumped as the next guy(gal) for FFXIV to come out. Let's share ideas, speculations, dreams of what we'd like to see, and be free of worry about getting reamed on just because your idea is similar, or even a blatant rip from another game. Other games were successful in many areas, it never hurts to look at how one company tackled a specific problem and possibly grow upon that and make it even more successful.

That said, keep the awesome discussions coming along!

That was pretty funny actually.

I'd also like to point out that nothing in WoW, or FFXI for that matter, is entirely *original*. Lots of stuff is taken from ancient mythology and stories written hundreds and even thousands of years ago. There are very few elements in games today that don't borrow ideas from ancient sources.

If FFXI incorporated Trolls as a playable race, it wouldn't be necessarily be *stealing* anything from WoW or making a clone just because WoW happens to have Trolls as a playable race. I think I'd rather like playing as one of the beastmen this time around. Quads are quite cute.

:p

Classic… just classic.

You had more for a sec. I defiantly agree with the point you are making.

They'd only be stealing from WoW if the trolls are Jamaican.

There are so many varieties of trolls...

Norse trolls. (Yay Beowolf)
English trolls.
Trolls that live under bridges.
DnD trolls.
Warcraft trolls. (DnD trolls with a jamaican culture)
Tolkien Trolls. (Turn to stone during day)
Treasure Trolls!!!!!

...

Could you imagine if FFXIV added Treasure Trolls as a playable race?

The only thing I feel they should take note from WoW is the ability to dance.

They can hold off on the dancing emotes for a while. The only time to put something like that in is when the game dies and thousands of people just logon to start their dance emote then go afk(to work for eight or more hours).

Uh, not sure if you missed this, but FFXI has that now. Only it's much less retarded than in WoW... though still a little retarded.

No no, I completely see it! I used to own several, and I'm fairly certain I can picture a pink-haired family of Treasure Trolls with blue stones for belly buttons, wearing tennis outfits, menacing the local Mithra...

Smiley: lol

Hmmm. Doubtful since they claim to only be taking these few races from FFXI and nothing else, really.
....but oh my various heathen gods would I like to play as a Viral-esque Yagudo. Great idea, too bad SE doesn't give a rat's ***.

A ton of new emotes is something I would find very pleasing. Definately not the 4th wall breaking style WoW had, but at least a much greater number of emotes than FFXI had. I'd dearly love to be able to sit in a chair, lie down on the ground, have a couple ground sit positions, and the like. As usual, the answer obviously lies in a middleground between the two extremes of FFXI and WoW.

The FFXI races will be making a return, but that doesn't mean they will be the only races. I suspect they will have a few more choices this time.
At the very least male mithras and female galkas, but I wouldn't be surprised by half-breeds like hume/elvaan (Lilisette!) or hume/mithra.

Perhaps some other races making a return like dwarves or vierra?
Basically, if it has primarily human-like features with a human-like face I can see it appearing as a playable race in FFXIV.

Ultimately it's all speculation, so we'll just have to wait for SE to release more info.

you forgot one troll, fixed.

After the WoW trolls I don't think I could handle another troll race.

The developers already stated that they have no wish to create a clone of WoW.

I have no doubt it'll be a direct extension in the vein of XI. (Thank god.)
