On the reverse side though, if SE didn't announce XIV even existed until say, last month and launched the site, would people be any less clamoring for info? Though granted I don't think it's good to announce something then not give info about it, hey, we've gone 5+ years until now without much (if any) knowledge of the game. A few more short months until beta won't kill anyone hardcore about playing it I think...
But the thing is it's going on almost 4 months since we got some good, solid info (gamescon demo).
The armor update last month was a pathetic excuse with a picture of a weapon (a sword of all things) and a little blurb about two jobs.
Tell us more about a new city, give some screenshots of a zone, battle system info, anything.
