Will the people who say they will still be playing XI still be playing it? I mean the game has been out fo so long, there's barely anything to do in the game once the storylines are complete, and if you set your life to get on 3 hours a day to do dyna or sky or sea, thats lame.... The story lines are to short and easy, and everytime they bring out an update, its just to add lame NM's and easy missions on whitegate or what have you, and the 3 new expansions were so lame, they were completeable in less than a week. I seriously doubt the people that say they will stay on XI will. The only reason they have is not to give up all there hard work, but as we all see, SE isn't really adding on to that game anymore. Whitegate was the last big expansion.

That's what they say. Some are committed to continue playing FFXI.
I'm pretty confident though that almost all XI players will want to switch to XIV unless Square Enix ***** up majorly somehow. I even predict FFXI players with bad PCs might go out of their way to buy PS3 just for the game, the way people are buying PS3s for XIII.
Based on the races alone it's obviously going to be a huge orgy of nostalgia.

Ill keep playing FFXI, especially if its better than XIV. After all I loved FFXI's difficulty, it was a sense of accomplishment when I beat CoP version 1.0 (i.e befor ethey nerfged it), and other difficult battles few had been able to complete back then gave me something to brag/talk about (like beijng the only person pretty much running around in sea for like teh first 3 months (others had access of course but it was less than 100 and no one hardly ever went up there back then lol)

the only thing FFXIV seems to have over FFXI is eye candy (graphics) XIV looks like its gonna cater to the WoW masses and be a lot more casual and easy (sure I can handle casual as Id prefer not having timesinks but give me some difficulty too) so unless Im wrong about FFXIV bein way too easy Im pretty much still gonan play FFXI, plu sI like the job systems a lot mor ethan the "weapon system" and if its true that FFXIV has no auto attack and al lyou do is spam job abilities to fight (waiting for them to cool down every however many seconds while yo just stand there staring like and idiot until they do) then this game is gonna be a huge turn off for me.

For now, yes. After launch, maybe. depends on whats been said already, about game play. Maybe more importantly tho on S.E. pricing. No way I'm paying 2x what I'm paying now. Maybe slightly more.

FFXIV might be so good you'd be retarded to stick with FFXI.


Idk

I am just hoping, that if you like or love, or are even addicted to FFXI Online... then youd LOVE FFXIV 5-10x more. Thats how it should be.

its not the point of FFXI LITERALLY dying off, whether peopel still play or not its the point that even if they keep teh servers up there wont be any new updates/expansions and the game will go from ever changing to never changing, how many peopel will stick around without new content? I mean when teh last time EQ1 got an expansion or update? and how far inbetween is each expansion/update asd opposed to back when EQ was "the next ne wthing"


Finally you cant compare EQ to FFXI because EQ is a pc game, FFXI although can be played on PC has a pretty huge Console fanbase too, consoles get obslete, I can still play EQ on the newest most current Pc out there, can I say the same for the next new console or the one sthat come after? how many peopel are gonna keep playing their PS2s (i wont even say 3s thanks to sony's BC removal) or xbox 360s to play FFXI by the times PS4 or 5 or XBox !080 is out? I mean how many of us still play our NEW=s, SNES or sega genesis or even N64's PS1 or Dreamcasts? Point is in teh end ofif FFXI does die it will be because of the consoles that is played on going obselete and not because of the lack or interest/players playing it

not true peopel thought the same about EQ2 yet that turned out to suck and poeple liked/wen back to playing EQ1 more, I sequal and prettier visuals dont always mean better, heck I got SNES games that are better than some of the crap they put out on consoles these days jnow.
