How would everyone respond if on on the above date Jan 6TH or 7TH SE either did a huge happy new years surprise version update or announced one for mid JAN? Looking at the cryptic translation from the NYE lodestone post we got and translations aiming something around some day using the number 6 or 7 . . .


I personally am tickled pink about something this huge possibly happening. Now this is strictly me having some fun and enjoying the new year and what possibilities it brings forth to XIV. Post your thoughts and Ideas here.

Oh I think it's coming soon, with any luck this week or next. Either way and I'd be happy.

****, I'm fairly happy w/ the game now. I'd just like to see a way to find those pesky items in the wrong wards from the search counter more easily. And of course more leves/NMs. :P

Not to be a downer (I'm sure I'll get bad ratings for this), but if you're basing it on the original Japanese message, unless it's relating to in game time I wouldn't get my hopes up focusing on that date as it speaks of what looks like the setting of the 6th sun (day) of the 7th month.

六の陽没し 七の月輝きしとき

But if something else did happen this month, it would be great.

No No I never said SE announced a mid jan update. . . I was just holding a hope out that the jan 1st grey tablet with the poem may be inferring a possible Jan version update. Then thinking about that I got excited and asked what others thought if it were to be true.


When SE announced in 2010 the "early 2011 update", I was in the mind set that it was going to be around march bc that was the tentative launch planned for PS3. Since that has been pushed back indefinitely, and getting this cryptic lodestone update I had the glimmer of hope we might be getting more as early as January.

I am looking forward to more types of quests, more leve's/better variety/lower reset time(would love a 24 hour timer for leve's), addition of companies, the township save quests Se talked about.

Let's see what the next 1-3 months brings to this developing world :)

I'm just basing my guess on my previous experience w/ this game. I've been playing since early closed beta (I had an alpha account, but needed a better comp for alpha) and they have been releasing patches (not including the bug fix patches) about once a month.

At this point even an announcement of an official plan or focus would satiate me enough to get this mysterious date the omen is foretelling :)

Something tells me we have something fairly large coming up in the next two weeks, my best guess is a version update announcement for feb/march and some more details about it. I can feel a tingle in my bones.

My guess: 17/01 -> Company Building and Airship.

No Chocobo, they went extinct.

Even if its June 7th, if they announce the official PS3 release, I'll be happy.

Actually it talks about the sun setting on the 6th day and the moon rising on the 7th...so midnight on the 6th? doesn't matter anyway this sees like something they probably scratched by now.

It was a foolish "interpretation" to begin with; people jump to wild conclusions fueled by an intense desire to see the game change for the better. Just because Yoshida's cryptic poem features a number in it somewhere does not mean that, as you have pointed out, almost all of the sentence should be completely ignored.

But, as you said, even if there is no indication of it in the poem itself, it'd be great if they actually did announce... something... sometime... how patient can people be? >_<;

Ah I see it now. Darn kanjis and their double meanings.
