Pretty dead huh..Follow

checking back in on FFXIV... guess it's been like over 4 months now... wanted to see who's still playing and what's been added. doent look good. forums look pretty dead also.

Honestly I don't see any major changes from when I first bought the Collector's Edition.. and its still not looking like something I wanna play even if it's free. no new classes, no new auction house~ I bet the framerate still lags even on my upgraded PC (should have no lag on ffxiv even before i upgraded). at least theyre adding a toggle headgear display option! thats something i was really hoping they could have had back in september.

wonder if they cancelled the PS3 version altogether?

oh im not trying to rub it in btw. i got owned pretty hard. built a PC just for this, played FFXI since it came out (on and off but got many jobs to 75 and participated in a good amount of endgame content) and literally played it throughout my childhood, i have tons of memories on it lol.

i was hoping to be a lalafell summoner of some kind and experience a really awesome huge world with tons of cities and an amazing storyline but i guess it will never happen. im surprised square enix is letting a final fantasy title turn out this way. youd think they would have done everything to prevent something like this.

i mean i hate comics and i picked up dc universe randomly the other day (didnt really know what it was) its much more fun than ffxiv was at launch and i TRIED so hard to love ff14 lol

k im done. inb4 coolstorybro idc we love the game i have faith auction house doesnt belong etc etc etc

What a useful post this is...
I also wanted to ride unicorns, eat cotton candy for breakfast, lunch and dinner, sing songs next to a campfire with my best friend forever that I met while we were killing the evil witch from the west... but oh dear, none of it happened and I am oh so disappointed.

How are the forums dead? How is the PS3 release cancelled?

This post was probably the biggest troll and I completely fell for it but jeez... move on to a new subject already. The game is not dead and I for one am looking forward to the growing process.

You could just log in and see for yourself after the patch today/tomorrow (depending on timezones).

Also, you deserve this for your awesome story:

Was definitely a troll, but but in all honesty these forums are very slow compared to what they used to be, and what most other games forums are.

youre acting like my hopes for FF14 were so ridiculous.. why shouldnt i have hoped to play SMN-like class, in FFXI's spiritual successor, with plenty of cities and towns to visit? youre just being mean.

and im not trolling im actually kinda depressed about everything, i know this forum has probably gotten similar whine/complaint threads such as this in the past, but oh well like I said forums are pretty dead might as well add a fresh topic.

Because I would imagine Summoner being advanced job (like it is in 11) and that it wouldn't even be implemented until in the upcoming updates.
I thought we were already pass the "this game was relesed too early" discussion...

To be honest, building a computer solely for a game you didn't seem to know much about (we knew pet jobs weren't in the game almost as soon as it was announced) seems insane to me.

Yeah it's pretty dead right now, but it's F2P and I get to watch the game grow and develop, I'm not worried.

OK I will feed the troll.

The forums are much quieter. I believe it is because most people that are playing avoid the forums now. They are full of posts like yours and people would rather play than continually deal with trolls.

If you bought a new rig for this game just suck it up. Its all ancient history now.

They are making steady progress. I list of goals has been laid out, and they are slowly implementing the new features. I too hope that FFXIV becomes as epic as FFXI, and has plenty of areas to explore, and cities to visit. But, I also know FFXI didn't have all that at the start. They gained all that cool stuff through expansions.

Right now is the time that I consider a head start. The game is sub-par, and everyone knows it's being worked on. Anyone who is playing now knows that this isn't how it will end up. This is just time to get ahead.

My advice is get a linkshell that is always together, and chills together often. Friends make this game worth while just like most other MMORPGs. When end game comes, and the game is what it should be, I'll be ready. Will you? :P

i dont know what you guys talking about.

i just started the game 2 days ago, and i love it, im using a controller.
For me the game/world is new, soo many stuff to do and to learn.

Maybe ppl that dont like the game are ppl that played too much olders FF...or have difficulties to change/adapt to different context.

my last FF as the ff7 so, i can see a major difference of game play every thing is new to me.
So im happy.

The moment I saw your post as "trolling", was the moment you said "it looks like nothing really changed from CE Release to now"...which is so ignorant of you.

******** of stuff already changed and more is coming just today...if you can't/won't see this, its your fault. FFXIV is heading into the right direction and you saying otherwise is just not true.

The main issue is depth, at several levels (gameplay, content, character defnition etc.), so you will see with time. But the patches are supposed to address this

My primary reason for a full system upgrade was FFXIV. Actually, my Radeon 3650 was being ****** and dying on me so I was going to replace it with a 9800 GT but once I saw XIV's requirements, I decided to upgrade my GPU to a 5770 instead, as well as upgrading CPU/Motherboard/RAM/PSU/OS at once.

I may not CURRENTLY be playing XIV, but it's still kicking *** at any other game I throw at it and once XIV has been improved to the point that I -am- playing it, I've got a good system that will handle it easily, and one that I'm happy with.

Plus, my fiancee got all my old parts for free, so she's happy too.

Personally, I'm waiting until the game is fun for me before I play it, rather than get burned out on doing something I don't enjoy because eventually there will be something to do at endgame. I'd rather wait until leveling is enjoyable, but that's my personal preference.

Increased Anima regen rates, increased chat limit (thank god for that), battle is more responsive, UI is more responsive, new NMs, new recipes... While the game does still lack content, which I assume/hope will be forthcoming in the next couple of patches, they have done a lot to increase basic playability in general.

And you can say "dont mention the bazaar searcher" [sic] because it's not an AH, and you're right, but it -is- a HUGE improvement over what they had before. Yes, many people want an AH, but most of the people who want an AH are in agreement that the current system is good enough and tolerable for now until they add content FIRST, then add an AH later. Yes, the game still could use a better market system, but they've gotten it to a point that is tolerable enough that people will be able to live with it until more pressing matters are attended to.

Yeah, I get if you have good and bad things to say about the game. I even get if you have mostly bad things and only a few good things, maybe. But if you have nothing positive to contribute whatsoever, then what are you trying to accomplish? Was the intent of the OP that all of us, or even some of us would read it and say "Wow, he's totally right! I don't like this game either! I'm leaving too! Thanks, dude!"

Ideally if you're going to post something, there should be some intent behind the post; something you're trying to accomplish, whether it is to make someone laugh or educate someone or whatever. I can't see, besides the theory I just put forward, what your potential goal was by posting this thread.

Yeah, this is pretty true. Sure, everyone praises whatever little thing SE chooses to add in, but the game is still, more than four months after release, only a couple changes away from where it was in beta.

The changes that have come (faster menus, a small handful of NMs, parts of a search system) are small -- though they may make a "big difference," as many will say -- and are mostly things that boggle the mind as to whether they were not implemented before beta, given how basic they are, in most cases, to game functionality.

Check back after PS3 release, since that will be when SE thinks the game is ready; right now, they don't, so it's not much of a surprise that you're unhappy.

With the exception of a few minor UI and Market Ward changes, it is essentially the same game. If you didn't like it at release you won't like it now.

No, actually I don't really give a crap whether you keep playing XIV or stop. don't be so self centered. and don't think just because I complain about the game that I don't want it to succeed. i would love if XIV was so much more. you have no idea how hopeful i was about it , but then I already did say I built a PC for it and bought the collectors edition, lmao.

and okay maybe the changes they made are noticeable but not nearly good enough, for official release or especially for 4 months after release, but we've been over that. btw youre telling me to say something good about the game, and well... I like the graphics. the character design looks very nice imo. i honestly think that most of the game is bad/not fun.

I guess the point of this thread was just to say, here I am , checking in again, and seeing little to no meaningful updates every time i come by, gets more depressing each visit.

Well that's great, but it doesn't change the fact the game is more or less the same, from where I'm standing at least. Unless there was some major change that I'm unaware of, haha. Just curious, what has changed the game for you?

Shame on you Poubelle !! The reason this forum is so slow is because only the fanboys are left, and you made a cardinal sin against them. You actually said what you thought about your hopes and how they didn't compare with what you get.

Your first initial post could be written by me I basicly did the same. So I guess you & me are the real fans here !! We hear SE releases a new game , watch some trailers and spend a heap of money to enjoy this fully. But when you do that and then share your disapointment your obviously a troll.

I hear you and am sorry you feel this way. I feel the same way and am still hoping. I actually came online in this forum to see if there has been a updat or one is coming soon so I can give it another try.

Let's hope SE still picks this up although I must admit the pass they are having right now isn't very hopefull.

Hmm, that is actually very good question...
I remember grinding a few mobs in September/October time and I was getting SP per action I made and it was driving me nuts... Made me not want to do anything at all actually.
In the beginning even the hempen gown was considered a good piece of gear but now because people have lvld their crafts there are more varied things to wear, shop, aim to get and so on.
In the beginning it took me FOREVER to go to menu, choose whatever I wanted to do, accept it and close the menu... now it goes smoothly and doesn't give me gray hair.
I have made some friends in the game which naturally I didn't have for the first weeks I played the game.
In the beginning I was lost with "what was going to happen to this game" because we had not heard almost anything from the Devs but now I feel that the wind of change is blowing to FFXIV way.
There are actually a lot now that I think about it...

The changes that the game has gotten may not be huge contentwise but I feel that FFXIV has now built a foundation (which should have been there already before official release...) and now we can confidently wait for the content to arrive. AND THAT is the thing that has made the difference for me to gain my trust and liking to the game... I can't wait for the updates :)


LOL, am I a fanboy now? Gosh, I didn't see this coming xD XD

I think the point trying to be made is that your disappointment with FFXIV does not a useful thread make. It doesn't contribute much other than sharing what's on your mind with people who have heard the disappointment too many times already. Part of what makes a forum community work is having threads that invoke engaging discussion. The criticism here is that this thread (though it is not alone) does nothing more than provide a space for you to share your depression, and we as a community have nothing to really say except "ok, that's nice." or "yeah, the game is disappointing" or "no, you're wrong."

I don't know if this has been mentioned already, but FFXI did not have summoner at launch, and the old dev-team said FFXIV would not have a pet class at launch, but most likely would at a later time.

Your complaints, and others like them, unfairly compare FFXI in a much later state to FFXIV, a game that although admittedly has its share of problems, was just barely released.

Like the other person said, the game hasnt changed much at all in 4 months, just tweaks and bug fixes which is nice but the game is just plain boring. At this stage, no one can defend this game. You can try but the game is dwindling even as free to play. You'd think being free to play, it would keep a lot of people but boredom has set in and many vanish. I can't tell you how many people have joined FFXIV, loved it the first year days and then quit in a couple weeks when they realized what you saw is what you get. Theres no breadcrumbs in the game right now, nothing to look forward to or goals to set. I'm still playing and do 3 leves at a camp a day but every day I'm losing more motivation to play.

Content please.

What's really sad, is that this game is still in development, is basically a beta, was released way too soon, was misdirected by the old team, and is still more fun than any other mmo on the market...

Seriously, if SE's flops are better than the biggest and most popular mmo's on day 1, then wtf.

At any rate, I enjoy it now, and I'm sure it will get better and better as time goes on and things are added. By the time we see the PS3 version and the first expansion pack, I'm pretty sure it will be such a good game that it will spoil me and make me unable to play any other mmo for a long time without constant complaints, the way FFXI did.

Honestly, the only issue I see with the game is a premature launch. If it was still unreleased, and they showed me what they had so far and said it was only 20% complete, I'd be blown away. Well, factoring in future content, it is basically only 20% complete. So really I don't see much to complain about, they just need time to add on to it is all. If I get bored with it I'll take a break, but right now I'm satisfied with playing it casually here and there and giving SE a year or two to flesh the game out.

Of course, it's a subjective matter... If you don't like it, go find something you do like. We gamers sink loads of time into our hobby, and there's no point to it beyond the fun you have, so if you're not having it, you need to find another game or a new hobby. Preferably one that doesn't involve trolling the forums lol.

have you played other mmos on the market? o_o

specifically the one mentioned in my first post,just released and it's already really great with tons of content. makes me wonder how SE managed to mess up so hard when they had FFXI to look at for guidance during the development process. but anyway i would say there are plenty of better mmos on the market, you clearly need to search harder, if not DC universe than i can even think of some free to play korean games that are much more enjoyable than ff14 lol.

Its weird how your user name is Poubelle and that you play DC Universe because I had an LS mate who I called Poubelle and he left to go play DC universe.

DCU is not a good mmo to compare
first off, yes it sold a ton, but a ton of people are already quitting it cuz its not an MMO in the sense most people wanted

It was built around a F2P model, it was built to be F2p, and when they saw the interest in it, they turned it P2P to get more money off it. I bet it woulda sold twice as much if it were in fact f2p like they originaly promised.


but seriously, this is a 14 forum here, most of us could care less about other games on the market, we arent looking for comparisons, we care about what we are here for, final fantasy 14/

this isnt any other game, and if you want it to be, you are in the wrong place

lol not me :P my character is on Linbdlum and, not named Poubelle

as for DC universe it was just an example of a game with a much better launch. picked it up just to see what its like and idk what youre going on about with the F2P stuff but im all hearing from people who bought the game is praise and that theyre going to subscribe. i find it pretty fun too and i think ill subscribe. fun combat, huge worlds and a lot of freedom in every aspect.

and i was replying to someone who compared FFXIV to other games on the market, thats why i brought other games on the market up.

How many people do you need disagreeing with you before you consider that you might be wrong? Holy ****, you are a regular Wile E. Coyote as far as posts go. Here's a title for your next thread: "Hey, I just bought some Acme rocket skates."

i should admit that im wrong because im being outnumbered but that's only because im on an XIV forum and while I'm a customer and I bought XIV I'm not actively playing, unlike most people who would still browse here are active. so it's kind of like

handful of people still clinging to XIV vs. me giving my opinions about it that they dont like.

like what do you want me to say. you're right, FFXIV really has developed into a decent game since September. I totally trust this Yoshi P guy and i think he's more than just talk. i think FFXIV is still going places and i think theyre definitely going to invest in a PS3 release!!

For those individuals like the OP who undertake a posting-mission such as this one, the goal IS to have others disagree. Their real lives are so pathetic and nondescript that they must come here and make inflamatory posts just to fulfill the basic human quota for attention. I, for one, feel pity for people like this. I can't imagine leading an existence so devoid of anything worthwhile that I am reduced to posts like the OP just to get noticed by others.

If you don't like it, quit, and leave us alone. I really don't understand the point of your OP, really. Were we all supposed to say 'you know, this guy is right, the game sucks and I should quit'? You don't like the game? Fine, don't bother us with it.

youre acting like my hopes for FF14 were so ridiculous.. why shouldnt i have hoped to play SMN-like class, in FFXI's spiritual successor, with plenty of cities and towns to visit? youre just being mean.

and im not trolling im actually kinda depressed about everything, i know this forum has probably gotten similar whine/complaint threads such as this in the past, but oh well like I said forums are pretty dead might as well add a fresh topic.

It's a subjective matter, you don't need to admit you're wrong. If you don't like the game, don't play. It's as simple as that. Other people have different opinions, and don't care to hear you trolling them. If you want to have a discussion about the game, that's fine. But don't just slime in and make ignorant statements about the game being dead because you don't like it.

And yes, I have tried other mmo's, and I've looked into all the major ones on the market. Though I haven't played any of the WoW clones, I did play WoW for 2 or 3 months because some friends pestered me to. There were things I liked. The novelty mounts, the novelty items, the druid class... They were fun. But PvP isn't my boat, the community was abominably bad,(and usually digressed into epeen wars over dps meters and gearscore at the best of times) you couldn't join a public -anything- without dealing with douchebags, the PvE was pathetic considering how long they've had to work on it, the crafting was just flat out garbage, and the general combat and mechanics were terrible. The gameplay just felt so shallow, and the battles were so mindless and didn't involve any strategy at all beyond not standing in a pool of acid like a moron. Due to the friends referral, I was getting triple exp while leveling, and shot straight to 80. It just felt like the game wasn't meant to be played more than a month or so. Again, that's just my take on it though.

The setting and theme, while not the most important aspect of a game, does matter to me. I have absolutely no intentions of ever playing any games based on superhero comics, star wars/trek/etc, or realistic military style games. Once again, that's just me though, it doesn't make games like that bad, but they're not for me, and you won't catch me anywhere near the forums for those games trashing on them.

I've also looked into other games as well, Rift included as I know the hype going around about it. Didn't look appealing to me. Seems to have the same shallow gameplay that made me dislike WoW. I'm sure some of the other stuff about it is good, but you can't sell me a car because it has a fancy radio and shiny hood ornament if the rest of the car is a piece of sh*t.

I genuinely like the style FFXIV has, I just think it needs more content. Since that is pretty much guaranteed, I see no reason to be displeased by the game, I'll just play it when I feel like it, and await the milestone of the PS3 launch or expansion packs which I think will bolster the games content to where it needs to be. SE never said chocobos and airships are never coming, nor did they say quests and missions are not planned, and it's not like they have no intention of ever adding endgame. Actually, the exact opposite of all those things is true. So I'm satisfied.

And lastly, yes I've been a fan of the FF series since I played the first game when I was barely old enough to read. So yeah I guess you could say I'm a 'fanboy' of it. But gaming is still just a hobby to me, not some cause, and if a better game comes along, I have no problems with jumping ship, and nostalgia for what the FF games used to be won't stop me. I already dropped the offline FF series as my favorite rpg line. Right now I'd much prefer another Star Ocean or Tales of game over another FFXIII style game. But hey, if the next one is more like FFVII was, then I'd be happy to call it my favorite again. As for the mmo's, I'm still sticking with SE's mmo team because they are more up my alley than any other mmo team is atm.

So there you have it. We've all hashed out our opinions on the game, and now anyone who doesn't like it is free to go away, so nyah. :P

Well every non fan boy is now at Rift.. only serious FFXIV fans are currently playing.. everyone had jumped the boat a long time ago.. but feel free to join me and Trion's ultra large and growing community this coming Friday for beta 6... Rift may not be perfect (although I find it to be pretty well done, you will never find initial polish like this game elsewhere), but it's release is so well timed, it will suck up a lot of new players as well as stranded players that currently are sick of WoW, migrating from old games, or leaving FFXIV in droves..

SWTOR is delayed, Guild wars 2 is nowhere in the horizon.. therefore the best game to play this year will be Rift... so quit wasting your time on here and join us at http://www.riftgame.com/en/
