I'm getting annoyed by all the hate. Hate, hate, hate. How about some love for once? This thread is dedicated to how much this game has improved. Long live FFXIV!

They backpedaled with the crowd control changes, but yes...this is the game I expected from day 1. /gcsalute SE.

I propose a toast: To version 2.0, the map changes, the more PCish looking UI, and Dalamund falling on our heads!

I hate that I used all my Anima and suddenly have 3 days off in a row without wife intervention and can't really take advantage of the situation. I need to complete my MNK skill quests (I don't care about AF but that would be nice too), and I WANT (need) the Ifrit/Moogle weapons.

That's what the lodestone forums are for...We like to live in reality here at Zam... There are people who like it, such as yourselves...people on the fence until 2.o, and people who hate it...And all three can make there cases as to why they feel like they feel...on Zam, unlike on the lodestone, if you get really nasty, well they just lock and or delete your thread.

So yeah...sorry if you feel "Hate" here. I like to think of it as constructive criticism.

A lot of people who are hating on the game haven't played in a few months and are still embittered.

1.21 brought a lot of good to the game, and it's the first time where I actually find myself constantly wanting to log in. Be it to finish AF quest, help LS members finish their AF or just muck around for those achievements I've been missing.

Why thank you, glad hating on the game since launch has made a better game for you. Hope it continues to do just that so one day it will be awesome enough that almost EVERYONE who left will want to come back.

I think your taking what I am saying way too far. I'm just saying we have all these threads that are negative. I wanted one that was positive. That's why I don't post on the main forums because here its more real opinions. Just wanted to mix it up a little.

They changed CC first by removing all hard CC from Thaumaturge. Then they changed CC by making repeated use build immunity on every mob in the game. What will happen if they make a debuff class? Who will want to have a debuffer in the PT for any fight longer then 30s-1m when the subsequent debuffs will stop working? Even now your lucky to land three sleeps in a row. And the duration drops off after the first one. I am glad they added aoe sleep back in though. It is quite useful for short duration battles.

You know...your right haha. I completely forgot they did this. Like now I remember reading it and being like 'WTF?!'. Maybe if they have a debuff class they have a trait or ability to work around that. Regardless they will have to address it when the time comes. But sleepaga definitely has helped me in many situations.

Not sure what warranted that sarcastic statement. I quit the game myself on launch. There are still people who post here that won't play because of issues they don't know were resolved a long time ago.

Powerleveling being one of those examples.

Eh...powerleveling won't be resolved. At least not before 2.0. At this point, where the game stands as is, I don't really think PL is the worst thing ever. Especially for those casual players or those who have all 50s and can make a quick buck. Maybe when the playerbase increases and as the game becomes more complete and solid grounded then nerf PL. But hey, people should have the right to do what they want. Turning themselves into Ploobs (powerleveled noobs) will only lead to their own demise!

I'm tipping my cup to rested exp!

I've got a ton of work tonight and don't really have much time to play, but I did log in for around 20-30 minutes to do some crafting outside of my room in Limsa.

Not only do I get some fast leveling done, but by not actually going anywhere my anima gets more time to recover from the weekend before last!

(Yes, on that note, the slow rate of anima regeneration is kind of ridiculous.)

Nah, powerleveling in that regards hasn't been changed. But leve bonuses and EXP resting have improved it significantly so that you don't need a powerlevel to obtain levels quickly. I got level 37-40 in an hour and a half with resting bonus on doing 8 leves. I think that's totally fair.

At least they added airships. Before you were SOL if you ran out of anima. You either had to walk or pay for teleport if you wanted to travel between the major cities. I'm a pretty casual gamer and before 1.21 I had never dropped below 80 anima. By the end of release weekend I was down to 8 anima and I'm still recovering.

I think it was originally designed to slow down the pace of the hardcore gamers. It probably wouldn't hurt to bump it up a little.

Lol, this reminds me of a time when I was a wee conjurer and used up all my animas and had to take the boat from limsa to thanalan, and run to gridania (more than once) to completed my conjurer quests. If I wanted to go back I had to do it all over again (no chocobos then either). It was a 1hr + ordeal and it really made me feel like I was playing a game that resembled FFXI xD.

1.21 has brought a lot of good, but overall I like the teamwork it brought. I know some players are really awesome at what they do, so some will disagree. However, I noticed the job quests have brought people together more either for a battle, assisting with getting into the 8 man dungeon required for an AF piece, or simply helping each other with teles. It is a nice feeling working together. Hope the future patches continue this trend.

What I really liked most about the new job system is that the dev team hinted about having multiple jobs per class. I think that will bring a uniqueness to this game giving a whole new view on how class achetypes work.

This is precisely I'm putting together an internet petition to stop SE from going through with 2.0. The game, at this point, is good enough to warrant being re-released immediately - so why wait, why pretend like it even needs such a thing as a complete overhaul?

Now I know some people will compare the plodding pace of FFXIV's changes to the pace of, say, WoW, or Rift, or SWtOR, or FFXI, but the only thing FFXIV needs to be compared to is its past self. That's the only thing critics and future players will take into account, after all, and we should follow their example. Games are made and released in a complete bubble and rarely, if ever, compete with one another. Thus, as long as we current FFXIV players understand this line of thinking, then we, too, can praise the quality of FFXIV - we, too, can live in that bubble.

Because even if it's immensely better than launch (which it is) it will still be panned if the game code isn't changed. It takes 5 seconds to move each item to or from a retainer, server lag is still noticeable even if it's better, ui is still clunky, etc. Yea with the content they added they could "relaunch" immediately, but the relaunch is more for fixing the terrible original code than anything else.

That said, I've played every night for the past week and am truly honestly enjoying myself. I allow for the obvious flaws, but it's not stopping me from having fun. I have reasonable, favorable hopes for 2.0 where I used to think SE was too far behind the times to pull it together.

I have to admit, it's kinda nice to log in, and have 5 different parties going in the linkshell. Not only that, but, there are constant shouts in Ul'dah. People are actually using the Auto-Recruit, and Party Search features.

All and all people are actually enjoying their time in the game (other than LS leaders getting mad that people are busy doing other stuff during LS events...).

I can't wait to see how the Hamlet defense turns out!

I just wish I had more time to play right now.

Rested XP and food XP has been great for a few hours of crafting a day. I rarely use standard anymore Quality doubles or more than triple Xp now.Cafting leves can get to 10k each easy now. I'm still waiting to see new armor that don't look evil Ul'dah feel creepy when you run to the Wards now.

i think many ppl are like me... i love Final Fantasy. FF9 the frist one i played when i was a kid. FF is always the best game in my heart but the game wasn't enjoyable at all except very beautiful graphic. compare to TOR i only watched the movies but their gameplay really suck me in and became a franchise fan .

im also waiting for 2.0 i will try for sure but it will be very hard to get a lot of ppl into this game at this year

Swtor - Tera - Gw2 in this year some game like Acheage is even coming strongly

From reading one of Yoshi's new posts it sounds like that is his intent.

Shifting quests to the new maps, new Dungeons to be added, and "a ton of quests" getting added, all around a more complete and content filled game.

It will be interesting to see how the new areas map out, and just how long it takes to find the different mobs again (here's to hoping that there are Morbols and Goobues that can actually be killed by less then a party of 8 level 50s!)

I'm curious how you could look forward to 2.0 and not understand how someone could bash the game as it is now? How can you expect improvement without expressing dissatisfaction? If all you ever heard was how great FFXIV was, would SE even try to make it better? How could they even define what "better" was?

He actually made perfect sense. He looks forward to 2.0. The game isn't at an amazing state but its made drastic improvements. You don't have to bash the game right now. We are not in a state where we should be. Constructive criticism and progressive ideas from the community is what is needed. Honestly, I'm not sure where you were going with those rhetorical questions. They seem to not make all that much sense. You want people who don't play anymore to continue to bash this game even through they do not play anymore and have not experienced the changes first hand to spread hate? I mean criticize the way it was, not the way it is now and then you can tell the definition of "better." With all said, still much more awesome changes are needed for 2.0!

I tell you, when I start hearing fancy rhetoric, I get suspicious, too - double suspicious when I see a post punctuated by nothing besides question marks! Question marks and rhetorical questions peek through the cracks of my mind and lead the winding way toward introspection, self-doubt, and, worst of all, philosophy; that's why I'm dedicated to the school of the exclamation point!

I mean criticize the way it was, not the way it is now and then you can tell the definition of "better." With all said, still much more awesome changes are needed for 2.0!


I think it's wrong to say it's only "constructive criticism" if you continue to force yourself to pay for this game no matter how much you hate it, but if you stop playing because you legitimately dislike it and you can't agree with paying for something you think needs improvement, it's nothing but "hate" and you're not welcome to express your views or remain in the FFXIV community.

A lot of people are waiting for Version 2.0, and it's important to know what needs to change to bring them back. If FFXIV doesn't get more customers, it's game over for everyone.

Okay you make a good point. I love free speech, I'm American full blood. What I am just saying is yes, express your opinion of why you left. That can be used as constructive criticism. There are still a lot of people who blindly bash this game, which I think was that guys point earlier. And **** yeah, 2.0 really needs to 'wow' everyone in the gaming community or we will see this game collapse. To be honest, its not that I have incredible faith in SE as a corporation because they have failed to show me any reason to. The only reason I have faith is because of Yoshi-p and his great vision and the dev team under his direction. It's really like what you said, its do or die for this game and lots of money on the line for SE.

I don't think people blindly bash this game. People left cause it was terrible. And I just got finished reading the boards about trying to find a group is still terrible due to the PL thing. Jinko who has been around a while on the forums was leveling with a friend only to finally hit a road block at 30 and can't find a party. He doesn't want to pl, tbh I wouldn't want to either. People are wanting level synch bad and pl to go away.

W/e side you prefer partying is still hard to find.

So to say people bash this game blindly I think is misleading. It's not like people are going about "lol ffxiv lol game sucks".

People who post have legit issues, some which have been fixed, some that have not, and some that will be.

Hey, glad there are people who are genuinely enjoying it in its current form, but it seems even the ones who are die hard about this game are starting to slowly have their fusses about this game.

What I think is that people can not allow a positive thread for this game. The OP wanted a thread about the improvements of the game, and in less then a page it has already degraded into a "Don't say I can't say anything negative because it's my right".

How about, lets actually discuss what good has come to the game. Because there has been good. The jobs are fun, the new quests are fun. I am curious to find out about the live event that sounds like is starting either today, or soon (and the fact that they never give out any direct information on the live events, they only hint at them through posts via the guild news papers).

I am not going to say, come join the fun, if you are not interested, I can understand that. If it's not your cup of tea, I can respect that. But if people genuinely want to discuss what is new and exciting, let them do it in peace.

If you think the game sucks, or is lacking in quality, that's fine. I will be honest with you at this point. I don't care, and there are many people here who don't. Accept the fact that people do enjoy the game now. And if you have a gripe about the game, make a thread, or join a thread of people who share your gripe, please.

This. This x1000. I hate the new Final Fantasy XI. Hate it with a passion, but I don't go on their boards and repeatedly say in every thread that I dislike re-hashed x system or new y level cap. I just don't post anything, am respectful to the thread, and I see anything of interest, I will return to that game.

I wish people here would give this game the same respect. I see the same post re-iterated by the same people for the last two years. We get it. You hate the game. You played in 2010 for two months and you got to level 10 and can't stand it anymore. Fine, play something else.

I don't see it so much with the gameplay systems on why he is having trouble. I don't know what server Jinko is on, but if it's one of the severely underpopulated ones, then I can understand his concerns. I've stated in other threads that a powerlevel is no longer necessary as it was in 1.19-1.20. Guildleves and rested bonus has been buffed a lot in its usefulness, and gives way more EXP than before.

After the server merges in a few days, I honestly don't think he will have many problems finding a group to EXP with.
