Long time ago when FFXI was announced. I was excited to hear they were putting Tetra Master in the game. Sadely thought it was a seperate entity to FFXI world.
I want to discuss the possibility of them implementing a card game into FFXIV. CoMpLeTe SpEcUlAtIoN!
I would love it if they added a card game system like FFVIII. Not necessarily the way the game is played, but the benefits associated with it. For example: Every monster has a chance of dropping a game card when you kill it. You could choose to challenge NPC's or players at the card game for a chance of winning a number of cards used in the game by your opponent. In addition to this, like in FFVIII, you could redeem X-amount of a specific card toward an item, weather it be an npc given item like an "item mall"(to use a negative term) or a skill to procure an item from the magic in the card.
A minigame like this would be something not done before in an MMORPG that i'm aware of, and would give players something to do beyond the normal grinding to max level.
Anybody else's input or ideas for other minigames? Keep to the final fantasy franchise of what's been done and elaborate on it.
