The Reason For The State Of FFXIVFollow

Basically it breaks down to this. Everything in the current release of the PC version of FFXIV is for the console (PS3)version. It's obvious and doesn't work well at all. Think about it. A game that doesn't use a mouse? The combat system? The clunky UI? Everyone knows the game was pushed out too quickly. WAY TOO QUICKLY. I can see why some people are this upset. But honestly you think that SE doesnt have some idea what there doing? The problems with the game at this point are atrocious. BUT. they pushed the game fast.

What will happen within the next week or two is there will be a mega patch. Making the game 100x better differentiating the game from the ps3 version. The chat is a perfect example. Chat isnt hard to mess up. But WHY would they do the 2 sentence chat. The no right clicking to /tell people or invite. the hard grouping? It's the console version! In other words 90% of these QQs are about things that obviously are meant for the console will be resolved. Obviously they went too fast and didn't release most of the computer version. They will not let that stand for long, (they know about it too trust me) with server pops going down and people starting to pay monthly soon.

( I worked as a Dev on a big MMO project and this is the only reason I can see for this happening. Cant say I have experience with MMO - cross platforms but it makes sense. )

My 2 cents. And it makes the MOST sense doesn't it? So I ask all you ragers, quitters and QQer's to stop playing until the next big patch. Then come back to this thread and say. Hey you were right!

It worked because it was a different time. Things are different. More advance. People expect more. And they deserve more so it happened like this.

It worked because the weren't putting it on a console. We are crossing into unknown territory here. We are fixing it trust me =)


Erm shouldn't that be the other way around. Ffxi was ps2 to pc

Lets get back to feedback. You guys Agree with what I'm saying the game would be 100% better? If the console problems in the game were changed to computer playability? Would you play the game say, until max level? If those problems were fixed?

Because, it wasn't being put into a console because it was already on the console.

I'm just trying to give some people solid information so they don't quit before the game actually gets started =)

First things first, OP, your grammar stinks like dead goats from southern Greece.

Now, back on topic, what's this nonsense about a Mega patch (lol), who made this rumor up? If SE couldn't implement these changes in all the time that Alpha and Beta were up and running, what makes you think they will pull a miracle and save face within the next couple of weeks? It's gonna take them several patches, and months, to actually make the game bearable to play (coincidentally the PS3 version comes out in 2011, how convenient), they have time to fix things, if they ignore the fact that PC players are also paying customers and FFXIV isn't a PS3 exclusive title. If they made the game cross-platform, why in **** they had to release it first on PC in such an incomplete state, without an AH, or a decent chat system?

I am not defending him at all but you can't say he is pretending to be someone he isn't without knowing for a fact that he is or isn't. He could be anyone in the world and everything he is saying could be true for all we know. Not saying it is but not saying it isn't either. He seems to be hinting that he is a dev for this game and I know if I was working on this game I would do what I could to let the community know things will get better.

Don't believe anything he is saying to be truth without actual facts though.

I already did, you are pulling all this out of ... a place where the light don't shine.

Making stuff up won't really help anyone, got that?

To me it sounds like you work for SE.
Wishful thinking of course.

Aside from interfaces, the game still lacks content and the entire world feels empty. 5 zones, big or not, is still only 5 zones. That is a big let down to me.

Nah, he is simply some naive guy who wants to influx some hope on the forum users, and he thinks anyone who isn't as positive as him is a troll.

1st off the bat.
You make your account about 5 mins before you make claims that you work for square.
You now say to the sceptics we are troll's. You then say you'll be back at a certain time. Is this for added effect?

I'm beingning to think if could possibly be a member of se.

Dangle the carrot in front of the donkey. Eventually he will follow.

Well i'm not following.

I'm not laying claims to you not being who your trying to say you are but this will get old fast.

You want to know what questions you will be asked? Look on the forums feedback and general discussion. Everything there will soon fill this thread. It'll just be consolidated thats all

Actually, no one will bother asking him anything. At most, there will be a few people posting, trying to have some fun at his expense.

OP doesn't know bout' how FFXIV was built for PC and is being ported to the PS3. People still don't get this and it's incredibly sad. Also, if there was going to be a bunch of changes in the next "big update" why have they said nothing of them yet? Why are most of these issues things people have told them about for the past 6 months on the beta forums?

Also, I indeed work for Santa Clause, and can confirm that underpants gnomes ARE actually real =)
