From all who have played ffxi, they have a sh*t load of content in that game. They could take that tweak it a bit and add it into ffxiv. Ya a lot of people will ***** about copy paste, but their is only so much you can do in games. I think it would be fine, get content in the game then a little bit down the line come up with new ideas..... for content. Sence the dev team is all FFXI peeps i will assume we will se this happening and i'm fine with it, i loved ffxi.
Do you think they haven't started work on any content prior to release that they need to resort to FFXI? and do you think its as easy as just pulling out some code in another game, slapping it into this one and that's it? either way, I'm sure they have content coming, just that it wasn't planned for launch, they thought they could mull people over with leves and the battle system. People didn't like leves too much as they got boring and repetitive at times and the battle system is still broken, dunno what they were thinking tbh, but content is coming...all I care about is a fix for the battle system and make party play the better option because solo is boring.
Oh yeah they are brimming with content Im sure. Im sure thats why they have a new development team.
The development team is the same, just the ones in charge of certain things were moved around and someone new added, they said they already had content for at least a year including expansion ideas in the pipeline from an interview this past summer iirc. Edited, Dec 28th 2010 7:38pm by Jennestia
Changing the development team doesn't mean that they didn't have content planned nor does it mean that all the content that was planned is going to be completely changed. Chances are, the powers that be at SE just felt that the last development leaders weren't producing the results that they were looking for. Much of the content that has been announced in the past will probably stay the same with the next few updates, but I wouldn't be surprised if they throw us some loops that we never expected.
They brought on some of the leaders from FFXI, probably in hopes of getting the prospective of people who designed their last successful FF MMO. SE also brought in some new blood in the hopes of bringing a fresh prospective to the game. I see huge changes coming rather soon (at least in the next 6-9 months); some perhaps coming completely out of left field.
It's all rather exciting! Edited, Dec 28th 2010 9:02pm by Joscerelle
