Just thought I'd throw out a random topic that has been running over and over again in my mind. With SE trying it's best to make FFXIV an online game that stands out on it's own separate from FFXI I thought the topic of the latest upcoming updates for 2011 specifically the creation of "Companies" would be something fun to discuss. I'm sure the thought of many of the serious LS leaders out there have pondered on the possibilities as far as LS management goes. Will companies completely do away with the need of dedicated end game, EG, LS's altogether.
For those who don't know "Companies" are supposedly an LS managed team. Kinda like an LS within an LS. Within that company they will have access to create like a HQ, buildings, ships, and what not. The information is still very vague and to be honest it leaves a lot of open assumptions as to what SE specifically meant for the additions of Companies to be. As far as my personal opinions go I can see the use of companies as a means to create a dedicated EG team within a Dedicated Social LS. Allowing for management in large LS's providing members to be a part of not only a large network of helpful and respectful members but allowing those who wish to push further into the game that access without having to leave their current LS. Instead they'll just become part of that LS's company.
This is just a thought into one of the possibilities that have crossed my mind as far as this topic goes. Now it's your turn. LS leader or not I'd like to hear your thoughts on the upcoming "Companies" addition in 2011.
