This is from the planned changes notes midway through the latest Letter from the Producer:

Company System
Introduction of public companies.
Introduction of public company leaders in each city-state. Announcement of further changes as they arise.
Introduction of public companies in Limsa Lominsa, Ul'dah, and Gridania to combat the threat to Eorzea. Announcement of further changes as they arise.


So I was thinking and hoping that these would be guilds (not just Linkshells) that would have things like housing and what not. Just reading that bit of information though makes it seem more like a more player involved Conquest system from FFXI. Its got the whole three nations thing going and a leader for each nation. I hope I am just misreading what this possibly means. I mean I am all for Large-scale PvE content with indirect competition between the nations, but I would still like actual guilds with all that comes with them: housing, banks, special services (like guild only NPCs: repair NPCs etc.), and guild emblems (because it would be so cool) so we can wear them and easily identify who rolls with who.

Well they are calling them "public" maybe the ones you're thinking of are called "private" companies...cuz they mentioned and explained companies several times and they sounded like guilds to me, and all that good stuff.

If you played FFXi I think it will be like Campain battles. But i could be totally wrong. I beleive they said Company's would be a LS thing but from the sound of it sounds like it will be open to all.

It sounds like a behest thing to me:

1. Talk to cool looking NPC in major city, get quest.

2. Kill mobs.

3. Return for reward.

4. Rinse and repeat.

5. **You're probably limited to be included to the same 8 levequest limit**

In other words, more levequest variants... yay.
Just a speculation.

I originally thought that a Company would be a form of expanded linkshell with greater functionality, but the way these updates phrased it made me think more of Wings of the Goddess and alignment with a city to do Campaign Ops for.

Which would be cool!

It seems like it's leaning towards that. I really liked campaign and whitegate. I do hope my speculations are wrong though. I don't want another "kill X mobs" quest thingy -.-. Large scale PvE would be awesome.
