Is FFXIV a great game? I want to join it, but I keep reading that Square-Enix is keeping it free to play because they don't like the game, what's the deal?

What kind of problems?, and how are they being addressed?, I am reading some of the topics on this forum and it's some negative stuff, but I really can't grasp what's wrong. I have played Wow and FFXI, so u can explain me in game terms similar to those games, please?

$60? Its $30 at Gamestop brand new...I guess if you can spare $30 TC and can take an incomplete game that is getting better slowly with time here then its not a bad investment. The first update of next year brings with it new content which this game desperately needs so its a good time to jump in i think. Join Kashuan If you do, we got a great Linkshell there Smiley: wink.

Most of the problems have been ironed out. The game was released with a lackluster, laggy UI which, while some people may still call it lackluster, its not really laggy anymore and has become a little more inuitive since its release. The game was also released with a market ward system (bazaar system more or less from FFXI) in place of an AH, so you had to scroll through hundreds of retainers and get lucky to find something you're looking for; the latest update implemented a search feature which streamlines this process. All that's left to really solidify this game (probably wont make it the best but it'll be on good ground) is the addition of more content because its barren atm, my brain can only handle so many leves before I get annoyed...but hey some people love leves maybe you'd be one of those people.

since your thread may become (probably will) a battle I can tell you how it has been for me. The development team atm is addressing long running issues and concerns from back in the beta days and they are getting around to it. They aren't charging atm because simply put the game really isn't worth charging for yet however SE is currently making strides to make the game worth the monthly charge and so far they are doing well. I can not tell you in good faith to go out and buy the game but i can tell you to wit or get a buddy pass and try it out. The game has a lot of potential and may become a major success and with a little more work likely many doubts will be silenced. The best piece of advice I have heard to this point wait for the PS3 release as it will be a good indicator of when changes are complete or check back here and we will fill you in as best we can. read http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/index.html for more info on the game and its version history.

Thanks! I will keep checking on how it's all going and might even try to get it for Xmas and see how it goes for me, especially, if I can get it for $30, instead of $60.

Hehe I was thinking of buying it my self, and just saw that it only cost 30$, so now 2 hours later I am installing it. It seems to have alot of potential, the engine is great and I love the FF world. Lets keep hour fingers crossed that it will be great in a near future.:)

The first 2011 version update (slated for Jan maybe?) will be a HUGE patch with new types of battle content, companies and questing.

Nov 25 patch notes:

Unlisted changes for Dec 15 is rather long and included my complaint about the night sky ticking which was fixed. Dec 15 they cut it down to the 'need to know' aspects more then the Nov 25th barrage. Though it is clear these changes are not small my any measure. My hopes are high too, and the search function is a great improvement to the wards which everyone hated for the past few months. Even that was a whole rebuild to do.

I assume you guys have already chosen a server, but if you haven't pick Fabul and shoot me (or Kairi Sgheart or Gynosis Bondbond) a /tell to get into this game the right way with a solid LS. ;)


...sorry if I've broken any LS recruiting rules here.

Because the trolls don't like to see people interested in something they dislike.

FFXI, and FFXIV

...don't mix.

Seriously, OP, FFXI has changed so much that people can now have level 90 SMNs within 3 days of finishing installation of FFX, or sooner, if they are hardcore. As for missions, most can now be soloed, especially if you were only up to the halfway point in COP. There has never been a better time to rejoin FFXI!!!

About FFXIV, it's absolute crap, so much that SE admitted it is such, and are gonna try to revamp the game to see if it becomes playable someday. In the meantime, it has gone into a free to play mode (which it has been on since launch ~4 months ago). Yup, you get to beta test it indefinitely.

I assumed it was because of posts like this that the OP makes about ffxiv on the xi boards
