Seeing FFXIV is FFXI 2...Follow

Makes me lol. Sure, FFXIV is using the same models for races and some enemies. But what FF game doesn't? Bombs, Chocobos, Black Mages, almost every FF game has something in common with another. Potions anyone?

Gameplay is going to be completely different. They said it is going to be more casual, the battle system is completely different, new world, new story, new job system, crafting is more in depth, and people still say FFXIV is FFXI 2. I really don't get it.

Am I the only one that thinks people are just trying to defend FFXI or bash FFXIV when they see these posts? This isn't a Facebook/Livejournal post, I was just wanting to see if I was the only one who thought this way, because judging by the topics I am -_-

Either change "Seeing" to "Saying" or "is" to "as" in your title, thanks.

This game is trying to be more like FFXI, as the developers have obviously said, so your argument is kinda done there.

But I personally think it'll be fine, and calling it FFXI-2 is definitely being a bit too dramatic.

It's not Final Fantasy XI-2, it's Final Fantasy I-14. Every Final Fantasy game has shared a series of common themes, characters and items and without them it simply wouldn't be a FF game. This game has entirely new combat, gameplay, character advancement, graphics etc. It is no more or less a new FF game than any other.

I was talking about reading that in =10. They never said it was trying to be like FFXI to be a sequel, just to ease FFXI players over into the new game.

Majority of all FF games share something from one or more of the FF titles. Why do people complain about something commonly known or commonly used in the new FFXIV where something, if not everything, has been used in multiple situations of the the FF titles long before FFXI.

Ahriman - FF1,3,4,6,7,7cc,9,10,11,12,Tactics,Tact-A,Tact-A2, CC
Antlion - FF2,4,5,9,11,12rw,tactics,tact-a,tact-a2,cc
Bomb - All but the first.
Cactaur - all but 1-5
Molboro - FF2,4,6,7,7cc,8,9,10,10-2,11,12,12rw,tactics,tact-a,tact-a2,cc
Just a few examples for just mobs.

Not to mention Chocobos, Moogles, and in all FF titles not including the first, we have Cid.

How is this case any different that it has to be called copied off FFXI when FFXI is a copy of all the FFs long before it(aside from the MMO part)?

Even the 'recycled' Raptors that some people are ******** about are from FF1.

And soul flayers.

and corses.


OP: People can be whiny idiots. They ***** about everything because they feel entitled to. You get the type with every game, in every forum. They exist, essentially, to bring everyone who is enthusiastic about something, down. It's internet sadism, really.

Now, before I'm accused of generalizing, there can certainly be valid concerns about the direction of a game which should be discussed. But really,

calling the game XI-2 based on some trivial similarities that ultimately nobody cares too much about, especially at a point in time in which, let's face it, we still know little to nothing about the game, is a total overreaction.

It's like calling FFXII FFTA-2, because they share the same races and a lot of key similarities.

Don't worry about them. They can complain all they want but in the end, they're not going to be the judge on whether you enjoy the game or not, or if it's a good game or not.

Hooollllddd on now.
Let's keep this apples to apples, ok?

If you want to talk recycled, it's an Aesthetics thing.

Look at FFXI's Ahriman and FFXIV's Ahriman.
Notice how color, form, and mass are all radically different from one to another.
This is a redesign. And an excellent redesign at that.

Now look at FFXI's Raptor and FFXIV's Raptor.
Is there a change in color? Change in Form? Mass?
This is not a redesign. This is a recycled design.

I don't mind seeing a bunch of throwbacks, especially historic ones from the lore. But I do need to see plenty of new things, and so far, there's not a lot of room for new things because of all the old things crowding them out.

It's too early to say that the game will be FFXI 2, but really, you're kidding yourself if you think that XI and XIV aren't more similar on the surface than any other FF numerals since graphical capabilities allowed for it.

I understand that.

But does it matter that much? Are some similarities so detrimental to the experience that it would force a person to not play or enjoy the game?

Even as an concept and 3D artist, I'm not insulted that SE would reuse this design like so many others are. I'm not really sure where this mindset comes from.

I mean, if from now on, SE did nothing but reuse FFXI mob designs, (and not even BAD designs) into FFXIV, you might have a point. But I doubt that's the case.

Well sure, but like I said, we still know very little about the game, and it's hard to call something a crowd when we don't know the size of the room.

Honestly, I think it should never have been part of the numerical series to begin with. It has more in common with the traits of the FF spinoffs than anything.

Yeah, I took that out after I looked at the texture on the claws.

My position in the other thread defended these designs, if you recall.

But that doesn't somehow mean we're not looking at the case of recycling the design.
Absolutely 100% that is precisely exactly what is happening here. Whether or not that bothers anyone is of no consequence to the labeling.

Crabs or colibri, definitely, but raptors? It's not like they were a very common leveling mob, (post-CoP, anyway) and it's still a fairly cool design.


Urgh, if I see either of the former I am going to gag.



I'm not fighting a redesign, I can personally think of some cool ways to modify it. I'm just kind of confused at such a pessimistic and essentially agressive outlook on such a trivial matter. I mean, really. We're arguing about the reuse of a dinosaur monster design. It feels silly even typing it.

People need to chill out a little.

Also, I'm gonna say it's safe to assume that "All 10" of those mobs confirmed, the number will increase considerably, But out of those 10 mobs, "Only 2" look extremely similar, which is also a very common thing throughout the series before FFXI.

Also as Kirbster mentioned, these aren't even mobs we commonly fight.

On a side note, if I didn't see the name, I would have thought that Ogre was the new Ifrit... >.>;

It definitely shows too. Especially with the look of scourging skin, hands, feet, and those Horns. Though "mostly" taking the form of a canine through the series, it has taken other forms, so I would believe it as well as welcome it as a wicked looking Ifrit. Too bad it's not... lol

I spent quite a bit of time xping on them, but that's not really the issue. For starters, I've always thought they looked ridiculous. Besides that, I just don't want to see too many mobs from XI, especially without pretty thoughtful redesigns.

Sometimes you just want a completely different experience, and similar aesthetics can really ruin the "new game smell."

I'm getting a little tired of you overdramatizing the opposition whenever someone disagrees with you. Nobody here is being aggressive or necessarily even pessimistic. Nobody here is being dramatic or needs to chill.

If I started telling you to calm down, you'd probably think I was just trying to paint you as some kind of zealot. You're not overreacting, you're just expressing a differing opinion. Even if the subject got you a little excitable, it'd be ridiculous to tell you that you need to chill when you're not even being inharmonious. See where I'm coming from?

Wasn't targeting you or anyone in this thread specifically, really, so no need to take offense. When I say chill out, I just mean that some people should wait before reacting negatively to every little nugget of info that comes out, as they seem to be doing lately.

I can't blame them for doing so, sometimes. I wish SE would would just unload all or most of their information at once so there isn't so much disparaging speculation.

Personally, I don't consider FFXIV to be FFXI-clone because FFXIV is definitely going to be played out differently (and hopefully BETTER too). But I can definitely understand those who feel that FFXIV is FFXI-clone.

The thing that disappointed me is mainly the decision to keep the race very similar (excluding minor changes like no-tail Galka, etc) while FFXIV would be the perfect chance for S-E to introduce male Mithra and female Galka, or race from non-FFXI FF games, or a totally brand new race. If FFXIV took place in Vanadiel too, that decision would've made much sense, but considering that FFXIV takes place in a totally different universe, there is no real reason to follow the FFXI race almost to the dot. While new hairstyles are introduced, the exact same old hairstyles/faces are there too.

For the monsters, I really don't mind much though I do feel odd that they chose to bring back the exact same blue zebra Raptor rather than using this chance to make a much more fierce looking raptor considering that they do that to Ahriman, Malboro, etc. I can't wait to see the brand new badass monsters though.

Maybe they're setting us up for a twist! They say it's a different world, but secretly, they're one in the same! And at some point down the line, you can take your character over to Vanadiel where you really will be able to play FFXI+1.

I could actually be ok with that if it were done well :p

I'm not so surprised by the idea of bringing over the same mobs. As it has been said before that is something common to many of the Final Fantasy games. Having the same(call them similar if you wish) races doesn't even phase me all that much. The changes to the class/job system is what throws me off the most. Now don't get me wrong it does sound interesting to have the weapons empower the character to define their role, but I'm having trouble with it. They said they kept alot of the mobs and mob names and kept the races similar to ease players of FFXI into the new game, but I find it odd that the one thing that endeared all(most) of the players of FFXI is getting the most radical change. There is still alot of time before release and quite a bit of info we do not yet have about many other aspects of the game that may be different, but I do have to say that I'm a bit uneasy about how exactly this will work out.

No experience points? No level up including spiffy 'You have gained a level' sound? No job/subjob combos?

I definitely wouldn't call it FFXI-2. I'm almost be hesitant to call it Final Fantasy at this point. Need more information.

One of the issues FFXI had was how detached it was from the rest of the franchise when it first started out. It felt more like EQ with a FF skin(which I guess it basically is). but now that FFXI has an established base its prolly not too good an idea to stray from said base.

I have to agree with the Ahrimans because they really did need a redesign. But the raptors were perfect the way they were. Like Kirbster said, they already look like the FF1 version and if SE bulked them up or something like that they just wouldn't fit the "Fast and Evasive" encounter that they are. I'm a bit disappointed that they kept the FFXI remake of the cactuar though. I've always hated it.

I don't know if it's necessarily going to be FFXI v2.0, but you have to admit that they are going with a **** of a lot of the same themes, starting with the races and ending neatly with their vision of the crafting model. Three starter cities? Hmm.. Dungeon based quests and parties? Yep, that's familiar.

I do think that this will be more similar to FFXI than to other FF titles, simply because for the most part, that model has worked. Is it the best mmo out there? Perhaps not when you pick it apart and look at all the issues that still have gone unaddressed over the years, but it's a **** of a lot more immersive than some of the crap games you could play today.

In short, if there was ever a game to model this new one after, I'd rather they copied from XI's formula (but fix the farking issues already) than something else. At least then we know that it's the same company, caring about making a quality game, and not just a group we don't even recognize anymore jumping on the WoW\Aion model because it brings in the initial big numbers.

People really like XI, because it's a great game that just was a little too hard core for its own good straight out of the box. If XIV is a similar game to the XI of 09', with more accessibility and things to do for the not so hard core, SE will have a major win on their hands and perhaps WoW will finally have a serious challenger to the throne.

I'm going to let the shallow part of my brain speak on this but....I really don't care if it is just a rehash of FFXI

I, like most of you, have been playing XI for years (coming up on my 6th). The point is, despite all the problems with the game I'm still playing it, again like many of you.

Updated graphics is something that many of us have been wanting for a long time sine XI is a PS2 port. To me that alone is a huge selling point. Of course there is a variety of things that XIV will have differently...but to be completely honest I don't want it to stray too far from the things I liked in XI. It will honestly be this familiarity that will keep me playing for another 6 years and I will welcome it.

It's not that bad thing. Nothing will make FFXI good enough for today's standards no matter what SE would implement, so a reset is the best thing they could do. I still see a huge potential with FFXI but it's being held down by age, low playerbase and limitations in console engine so I hope that with XIV Tanaka and Komoto will be able to show me that potential still hiding within the game's surface.

If copying some things from XI means that they'll be able to focus on what they find more important in their vision of the new game, so be it. I've always liked Opo-opo's anyway.

I haven't really said anything about the quality of this design, per se'.

All I wanted to get across is that this an aesthetics matter, not a matter of nomenclature. The fact there was something named a Raptor in a previous FF (As far as I know; in X, because all I can find in 1 are T-Rex.) has no effect on how XI's and XIV's Raptor look visually. Even if this design had been in another FF title, that doesn't mean it's not recycled; it would just be another instance of recycling it.

That's pretty much the whole of it, nothing deeper than that.

There's nothing wrong with recycling what works. Take for example Mortal Kombat 2. They took all the old characters, the same bad guys, and generally same fighting mechanics from MK1 but threw in enough new content that the end result was a superior game to the first. With that said, forget the rest of the series as it negates everything i just said lol.

Take for example Mortal Kombat 2. They took all the old characters, the same bad guys, and generally same fighting mechanics from MK1 but threw in enough new content that the end result was a superior game to the first.


And it didn't become MK4, it was just MK2.

Seriously guys, after watching the videos, if you don't think the battle system is a modified version of what we had in FFXI, you're in denial. That's totally ok too, but this is a sequel to FFXI whether you want to beleive it or not, the name doesn't mean much.
