I know the devs have said they wish to put large scale events like this in, but what I am curious about is this...
- Will the devs finally allow all people to really participate? Not something like how Besieged first began where a mob looked at you and 20 secs later after the lag settled down you were dead (though you actually died 19 seconds earlier by the mob which one shotted you) Will lvl 1 (yeah yeah, no levels but you know what I mean) be able to do their whopping 15 points of damage without seeing <resist resist resist resist resist>?
- Will the campaigns like these actually have ways so that you can track and count your own contribution instead of mysterious forces that gave you an almost random number at the end?
While it was amusing to be able to take a low level job and run out to Sang. to beat on a wall with few mobs defending it... the first few times... it did get really dull fast but it was a nice, safe, easy way to get your lower level jobs some XP when groups were hard to come by. Will there be a way to do this in FFXIV safely, but properly without having to worry about getting killed when any mob b***ch slaps you?
What do you think the devs have learned from FFXI on the dos and don'ts of these types of battles?
