Live transmissions get subtitled all the time (I watch tv with closed captioning on, and both news and sports are captioned). Of course, that's just transcribing spoken English to written English, but a skilled translator wouldn't have that much trouble more-or-less keeping up if teamed with a good transcriptionist.

That said, I wouldn't expect an event like this to have that feature, although I am puzzled as to why they hyped it up in the West.

"Hai"

It means Yes, and it's extremely typical of any Japanese public person and interviewer.

I guess you don't watch much Japanese TV :P

The paper they did show did say "New Eorzea". Whether that means new design, or a "colony" expansion is anyone's guess.

Didn't understand the whole thing, but they talked for 5min. about the removal of the physical level, which was adding problems for stats reassignment, etc. Then, they talked about the maps changes, especially Gridania.

Q: When will the map will be renewed for XIV? I’ve been waiting for long time...#XIVLive

A: We'll answer in next live event we hold! However, let me show you something as we are on Live. This is the dev. document about Gridania. As you can see, it’s a very major change! In any case, let me give you more details in the next live event!

#XIV Live Q:Hi Yoshi-p! I am a culinarian, please let me know what the planned timing for the food effects and your current thoughts on the class!
A: Planning for 1.20 or 1.21. If the effects get a bit too high, we will be focusing on a specific recipe and will be thinking in a bit different direction. Once we decide the specifics we will let you know.

#XIVLive Q: In FF series, ancient spells are ultimate spells. IN FFXIV, they're not. Will it be adjusted later?
A: In 1.20, there will be major action and magic spell changes. I am thinking about adjusting this in there. Look forward to that change!

Yeah they will add them in the future. But like they said, it's a "low priority" feature.

A: There is one job that has yet to be announced... What we have announced so far is paladin, white mage, black mage, dragoon, monk, and bard. Last, here is a warrior image!

#XIVLive Q: Hello. I started playing after release, but I quit after hitting rank 30. I plan to come back. In your eyes, what do you think is the main feature of the game in its current state? It would help a lot if you can clear that up for players that are planning to return to the game.

A: It’s hard to say in its current state. We are only about 50% done regarding content. However, if we are talking about 1.19, I would have to say chocobos and Ifrit will be the main content. Everyone should get that FF-feeling with this content.



#XIVLive Q: Will you be able to attach materia to equipment created via the old recipes?

A: We will not be allowing materia craft to be used in conjunction with the old equipment. Apologies for this.


#XIVLive Q: How will you earn spiritbond points for Materia Craft? Will it be based on the number of hits? Parties you're in? When does it reach 100%?
A: Spiritbond will increase when you earn experience points.



#XIVLive Q: We have seen Ifrit weapons. Are there any plans to implement Ifrit armor in the future?

A: The Ifrit weapons are heavily focused on Ifrit’s horns. I wanted to implement weapons with special effects so we will only implement weapons this time. However, we are currently in the process of creating new armor (job specific armor, crafter specific armor, etc.) for the upcoming content. Stay tuned!

#XIVLive Q: Will you be adding chocobo animations while on chocoback? Like waving while riding?
A: Currently we don’t have any plans for this, but if there are a lot of requests, we will look into it.

Q: I understand that the chocobos implemented now are male. Will there be a female chocobo?
A: Chocobos are heavily connected with Ishgard and come only from there at the moment. In order to maintain their exclusivity, currently only male chocobos are being given out to the rest of the city-states. Also when you name Chocobo, you might want to name them male-type names!


#XIVLive Q: As a gamepad user, I find it difficult to scroll through the list of actions. Are there any plans to update the interface?

A: We will be working on updating the user interface not only for the gamepad, but for the keyboard/mouse users as well. Please be sure to provide us with your feedback.


#XIVLive Q: PvP has often been touched on, but exactly what kind of elements are you thinking to add?

A: First off, we are designing it so that players that do not wish to take part in PvP are not forced to. We are planning 2 things for PvP. The first are battles in the Coliseum. The second is an PvP area where you can fight for control of various influences.


#XIVLive Q: What is the hardest part of this past year for you? And what is the happiest thing that happened in the past year?
A: Many hard things! (lol) My very first month after the change was the hardest. However, my happiest moment is when you, players cheer me on! Thank you so much! :)


#XIVLive Q: I heard you like spicy food. How spicy are we talking here?
A: There’s a soup-style curry at a certain restaurant that is supposedly extremely spicy. I can eat it without even breaking a sweat.

‎‎Q: Yoshi-P, I bet you want a smoke right about now!
A: Haha. Yes I do! I would like a cup of coffee as well...

Q: What's the best part about online games in your opinion?
A: The most attractive aspect to me is that there are so many things to do and people to meet everyday!


#XIVLive Q: When you rank up in Grand Companies, what kind of good things will happen? Also, please tell us some of the rank names.
A: First, you will be recognized on the Grand Company Lodestone page! Also many good things will happen such as an increase in the number of company seals you can obtain. Give it a shot in 1.19!

Q: Are there any plans on improving the pugilist class?

A: You should see for yourself in patch 1.19!

I wasn't able to so I have to ask, did anyone snap a screencap of the papers he held up about the map revamp? They looked pretty extensive, but at first I wasn't sure what I was looking at, and after realizing they were not up for much longer! I'm glad to see the revisions they're working on are definitely looking interesting in regards to map changes.

#XIVLive Q: Why do we lose everything including gear when failing the 'forbidden' material craft? It seems like too harsh of a penalty!
A: Yes, the penalty is big. When you get all seven equipment slots set with 1 materia each, you will be very strong. If you want to be stronger, there must be a risk associated with it. Feedback on this will be welcome though.


#XIVLive Q: Can you give some pointers for beating ifrit?
A: The normal mode is pretty easy to beat. However, the hyper mode is going to be very difficult. You’ll feel the true power of a "god" in that fight! Multiple stages... horns... I've said too much already!

Q: Is Yoshi-p almost capped on accessory points? You’ve got a bunch of accessories!
A: Yes, indeed. I can put about 6 more though. lol

#XIVLive Q: What kind of other mounts will there be aside from chocobos in the future?

A: When we did a survey on the forums, we received a lot of requests for "Magitek Armor" as an example. Things like that will be a good reference going forward!

Q: Will we have the chance of meeting the leaders of the Grand Companies soon? What about the NPCs that appear in the main scenario?

A: You’ll get a chance to meet the NPCs that appear in the main scenario very soon. Also, there’s an ongoing event that the GC leaders are involved in. You’ll have the chance of meeting the leaders of each GC as well. Stay tuned!

#XIVLive Q: Do the developers think the rate in which players completed Dzemael was fast? Slow?

A: The community team predicted the first clear would be after about 8 hours. I predicted 3 days and it turned out it was pretty much that. So I think it’s just right. Ifrit is even harder, so good luck!

Q: How did you get started in the gaming industry?

A: Well, I wanted to write story scenarios to begin with.
I worked my way up from a large MMO-title and became director after that.


#XIVLive Q: After the claiming system change in patch 1.19, I'm afraid everyone will be power leveling each other. What do you think of this?
A: It depends on what you consider power leveling. I just want to make sure friends are able to help each other if they want to challenge content together.

Q: I hear rumors about moon phase or the direction you face giving special effects to crafting. What's the truth?
A: I know it's talked about in forum, too. Hmm. Maybe some things are better to be left unanswered.


#XIVLive Q: On the Lodestone, level 51-60 recipes were posted. What is the meaning of this? Will the level cap be lifted?
A: Whether the cap will be lifted is a separate question. We posted these recipes to show off some new items as well as the necessity for equipment for high level and crafts that level 50 players can gain experience from.

Q: Can you tell us about the new class system?
A: For the class adjustments, we are planning to have every class possess their own identity. Also, actions with multiple elements and facets to them. In regards to jobs, you will be able to take on job quests from level 30+, and once you complete those will you will be able to use those jobs.
