With all the new info we are getting from SE about the setup and basics of FF14 it seems like FF14 with be a lot faster and a lot more interactive game then FF11. The is no autoattack, you probably need to use a lot of abilities instead and you have to position yourself during fight and caculate distance and you are most likely on the move when you fight, so no more stationary fights.
This again? We have to suffer through another ten years of, "Give me NA servers or a quit! lol"
I brought up this issue 4-5 months ago but no one bothered with it since we didn't have a lot of info on how many abilities you use during fights, how the fighting structure looks like or if the fights are stationary as in FF11.
It'll be every bit as "laggy" as FFXI was. The game makers understand that causing issues because of lag sucks, so they made the game with that in mind. Being slightly lagged won't cause any issues to your game experience.
In the light of all the recent info we have recieved I'm getting really nervous about how latency will affect the game to such extent that there won't be a chance for you to preform or even beat an hard encounter due to bad latency.
I'm really nervous that I'll be struck by lightning. Is it likely to happen? No.
The game will be made in such a way as to not have issues with a touch of lag. Unless, you're using a modem from the 1980's, you'll most likely be fine. (Though, having a faster connection than dial-up never hurt.)
As you all know WoW have solved the issue by placing servers locally around the world, but so far SE have stated that all FFXIV servers will be located in Japan.
Yrs, just like FFXI. And when everyone wanted NA servers for FFXI, that didn't happen either. Suck it up and deal with it.
I just did a ping test to see what I get to SE and I got a ******* 350 ms ;(
A third of a second? You're worrying about a third of a second? Most people would barely be able to react to stimulus in a third of a second. This isn't an FPS where tenths of a second start to matter.
I'm averaging 37 ms from Rochester to New Jersey. From Rochester to SE, I'm getting 214 ms. That's WELL within tolerance for MMORPGs.
I really hope SE hasn't skipped this issue.
They haven't. The game will be fine. Just like FFXI was.
