A Dev recently posted that useful statement on lodestone forums.

So, typical SE but hey ho. Vague as **** with no actual information.

Thing is, I din't know why, but I kind of believe it.

I have this feeling that there's no way SE could let the game go on it's **** yet.

I think they know they have to do something big soon, I think they may have even known it at the start. These guys are top top businessmen. They aren't idiots. It could all be part of the plan.

If this was some crappy little company with cashflow problems then I'd expect it to shut down, but even with their recent losses, SE is HUGE.

I really do think something is coming, I think something has been in the works for a long time. There are too many blocked areas, too many NPCs talking of coming change. I even think some of the lodestone forum posts could be planted.

Something really fishy going on lately.

I smell a rat (see what i did there, ahahahaha, hahahaha......erm......ha......ahem.....sorry)

It's Matsui's information about the new battle system. Likely coming out next week.

http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/forum.php#threads/10370?p=132282%23post132282

The gist of the thread is this: A Japanese rep replied to a Japanese thread to say Matsui's information was coming sometime next week. It was then roughly translated in an English thread and that same rep should up to confirm the information was accurate.

Who knows what we'll get though. Details would be nice but with the way things are going all I'm expecting is a confirmation that in the near future we'll get a patch containing some kind of changes soon.

Not the patch. In the last Letter from the Producer, Yoshi-P said Matsui would make a post on the official forums "in the near future" regarding information about intended changes.

That post, it seems, is coming next week.

Battle changes = increasing the size of macro buttons; increasing the size of single-handed weapons; and adding auto-attack.

#7Warmech, Posted: May 13 2011 at 12:40 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) So SOMETHING is ANYTHING can happen between now and the foreseeable future. I'm still waiting to wear any color armor like I read at pre launch.SE has to do something people are trying to linkshell recruit again or seeing a lowbie archer soloing make people feel sorry and they offer him a linkshell invite.

Aye, lol. Happy Friday

The Dev posters have gone away to pass on our suggestions to the main Dev team.

The main Dev team say oh, our ideas are nice, but not what they're planning, so tell everyone they are good ideas but they'll have to think about it for future development (5 years time).....

That's pretty much how it's been on the forums for quite a while.

They must be planning stuff, they can't be that crap,..........can they?

Please don't kill my final fantasy.......please...

Bayhone, an SE community rep wrote:
I saw the icon and thought I posted this. "I don't remember being awake at 5am..." This forum ain't big enough for two people with the same icon!

But seriously, thanks for the heads up Foxclon! (Told you guys SOMETHING was coming.)


Just a little confirmation that the "SOMETHING" is Matsui's upcoming post. Bayhone, the English rep, stopped in that thread I posted earlier and affirmed that the something he refered to in the thread the OP is talking about is Matsui's battle system info.

Hello.

Regarding the battle concepts from Matsui you've all been waiting for, we're currently making confirmations to ensure we can deliver this information to you next week. Please wait just a little longer. Needless to say, we're working on FFXIV!


Hm, for some reason your link only points to the main forum page Sephrick.
