What few things in FFXIV would be the deal breaker for you? If you had to chose some things that FFXIV implemented into the game that made you dislike the game, what would they be? Why?
I think the ONE major thing for me, would have to be too much ability to solo. The fact that community could almost be taken out of the picture that is FFXIV. I know alot of ppl complain that pt's were so hard to get, or that they hated the time wasted waiting for one, but it gave you a sense of accomplishment when you did it.
When FFXI 1st came out, it was hard. You could not solo easy at all after a certain point. Granted it was a bit much, and possibly turned away some ppl. I keep seeing information that points to FFXIV as being so much easier to solo, and that due to the new battle system it will be possibly harder to communicate. I like to solo sometimes, and sure I don't want to talk all the time, but I don't want these areas to suffer.
The community that is FFXI is strong, we can see it here and now with the anticipation of FFXIV. I want the ability to adventure and explore, the ability to level and be proud of it, meaning accomplishment. I also want those times where you need your friends, your linkshell comrades, to battle something bigger than life.
This would be the ONE thing for me, my biggest fear. I feel the game would possibly die a slow death if it becomes too lonely, too easy, no reliance or depending on others to accomplish that which cannot be accomplished alone. I feel that if FFXIV went in this direction it would not be the next generation MMO, it would just be another MMO.
Let it be known that I do not wish for the solo abiltiy to be removed, far from it. Bottom line my biggest fear would be that party or teamwork would die.
