Im am amazed on how much XI seems to get more updates/patch then XIV...

Ridiculous...
Ive done XI nearly entirely so (for me) its past and wont never go back. (ZM/CoP/TOAU/WOTG) (CP/MKDE)
Now from tons of thread ive read from XI, says its now become Final Abyssea XI...


Are they trying to pull ppl out of XIV back to XI since its P2P until they P2P XIV ? /sigh

(I am) losing hope at light speed atm, and im prob not alone.

Plz for the love of Shinto/God/whom ever! Give us a good 2nd Feb Update! plz... /cry

Different teams work on each game now that they put the people who made XIV back on XI, and with good reason. They kinda sucked at making "new" things. They were much better at adding on to things they had already made.

Let me translate:

SE please stop making money on your current successes. We would rather you make no revenue and run your company into the ground,

Sincerely,

They will shift focus when 14 makes more money than 11.

14 profits: 0
11 profits: many


It's smart. 11 is deep into profits and is paying for 14 currently. So relax and be thankful that there is a profitable SE mmo.

Troll or not, I have to say the OP has a point.

In the various verbiage we've received from the management ranks of SE, it was crafted to give us the impression that it's "all hands on deck" for XIV.

Reserving a value judgement on to what extent that's true, it is rather frustrating as a dedicated player of XIV (and a non-player of XI) that a 8 year old game is receiving updates whilst XIV's "patches" leave much to be desired in terms of the core mechanics.

Now, I don't doubt for a second that the XIV team is working hard on revamping the gameplay, even to its very core, but given only the vague, undelivered 'promise' of change, we can only question what's really going on with resource and work prioritization within the company.

Let's be real though - look at how much revenue SE is getting from their iOS games, and how little expense those incur. That said, all anyone is asking for is some consistency in presentation.

TY^^ im sad because i want XIV to be awsome like XI is, and im mostly ****** cuz i would of imagine they would have learned from passed XI mistakes. (late chocobo breding,very low XP from ep/dc/em mobs,mog house in small towns,etc)

Not only that but also the fact that (in my opinion) the 6mini expansions implemented towards the "end" on XI were there as a test to see if removing the cap would work and to see the ppls response to these expansions. (which was a big success)

Might as well just play WoW, since RIFT has carbon-copied even minor details from it.

Yep, they removed the one bad part of it, though. Activision-Blizzard. I'm sure it will get tons of people who leave WoW due to Activision's influence.
But then someone will eventually ruin them, too. Maybe EA and their "episodic gaming" schtick? /sigh. Guess I'm just ****** from V-Day. I hate V-Day.

Long time ago before the server merges even there were around 5,000 on each server at any given time T_T those were the days. I'm sure you remember.

And it still took me 4-6 hours to get a party as a SAM. This was right after the Weapon Skill TP nerf.

But back to the topic. I am ok with the slower updates for 14 as long as when we do get them there is actual progress and change involved. If they turn out to be 500megs of nothing important I will probably cancel my "free" subscription. As stated before its different teams working on the games so its fine if they both get updates.

I rather their link the two game up.

Would be so much more fun if they make the retainers have FFXI character stats and we can use them to do some secondary task. (like pankatron!)
