What do you mean exactly? Besides the visual similarities of the races, I don't see anything that would lead anyone to believe FFXIV is XI with new wrapping paper. Please elaborate thanks.
Race similiarities. No jumping. Combat seemingly a copy of ranger combat. SE stance on many things.
Coibris mobs in AU are mostly melee burns where the mob is constantly changing direction, so I never had the luxury of just standing there using auto attack, not to mention that I also pulled and had to have the next mob waiting and ready as soon as the current one was finished off, so no…
A mob rotating its postion does not require you to move, likewise i would not put movement as engaging on any real level considering you can lock your target and auto run to it.
You also conveniently glazed right over my mentioning of how involved Paladin and Ninja are.
And you cherry picked a single mob to justify engaging combat against a general observation.
Is it? What makes you an authority on the matter?
Aside from your neglection that this is a forum and people are entitled to opinions, nothing. But it is reasonable for any non-zealot to see that carbon copying a game will not yield a much higher playerbase than the original and infact will split your playerbase between the two.
Then there is the personal belief i have that if ffxiv is a ffxi copy, people will not stick around for that game since they will be abandoning characters in ffxi that they have had for years on end - especially with new content not stopping for said game.
I mean after all... from your previous posts I see that you actually played AOC, so I’ll also assume that you also bought that game (if you wanna call it a game), and paid a monthly fee to play it… this is of course Age of Conan we’re talking about.
You know… probably the biggest epic fail in MMO history, developed by a total hack developer named Funcom.
Yeah, me and my wife played
AoC for a couple of months during launch. Left shortly after due to bugs and such. I use AoC as an example that a good launch can make or break a game - because that is exactly what happened to AoC.
Sorry, but I think I’ll pass on taking the opinion of someone who actually shelled out money for that silly trash seriously.
I personally find the ffxi zealots hilarious - very much paralleling religious zealots in some ways. Oh sky cake, why do you taste so delicious?
Some people just need an excuse to complain.
Not really. I dislike what i see. I don't make threads complaining about it and spam the forums on sock puppets like some people. I do join in on some threads occasionally to voice my opinion - afterall that is what a forum is for right :P Edited, Sep 15th 2009 7:21pm by KacesofCaitsith
