I don't know... there's a crystal in the background. We didn't necessarily know there would be any crystals, did we? Smiley: rolleyes

Now that you mention it: something around the crystal seems to be moving.
And there`s also movement to the left of the background...

Blue=Ice... Red=Fire... a secret hint at a hidden change in the balance of
elements only the TRUE fans of FF can see? Like that Starlord guy on
the official forums? Like only a TRUE fan can?

I mean, the page is brilliant! A real teaser! Anyone who should happen to
stumble upon it will immediately see: Badly textured raised paw. This must
be a good MMO. And the top line even states: EPIC FINAL FANTASY.
So it has to be EPIC.

Because, like, who needs more than that anyway. Short attention span.
You know the deal.

lol, as optimistic I WANT to be for this game, if this IS it for the teaser site, then I expect to be sorely disappointed for it's future success. Honestly, EU/FR/NA/JP placeholder sites should have been up at E3 if all it were going to contain was concept art, and 6 screenshots we've already been shown.

Square has a magical way with underwhelming me lately.

@Starlord
Hu-hu. Guess that's my big chance to tell you how ridiculously moronic your posts are.
I mean, if there was an achievement for every bit of whiteknighting around, you'd have
at least 70 paragon crowns under your belt.

But, I have to give you that: you almost made me re-subscribe just to tell you. Looks
like you failed even at that. And now, please tell us how GREAT and AWESOME an
idea it was to open the TOTALLY NEW 2.0 page with THE EXACT SAME screenshots
every single *** even remotely interested in the game has already seen like, a month
ago, and grace us with yet another BRIGHTER-THAN-LIGHT MASTERPLAN explanation
whipped out of your fullmetal alchemist sleeve as to why SE had ABSOLUTELY NO
CHOICE other than doing exactly what it did. And how brilliant every single choice they
made since Yoshi took over was. Something like the stuff about skipping E3 being an
awesome move, "because nobody goes to E3 anyway".

Do I get banned on Alla when I call someone an ignorant delusional tinhat? No? Great.
Dammit, I really feel better now. Ain't I easy to please.

@Solonuke
The trailer never was finished. That was so obviously a blatant lie, it almost felt insulting.
Remember 1998? "Sure, Duke Nukem Forever is almost finished. And it will be the best
game you've ever seen. We just won't show you, because, like... uh... we don't want to
spoil the surprise, when it launches... uh... very soon..." 54/100 metacritic. 2012.

@Rinsui

Where did I say that the Website was Good on the Forums? Never, All I said was the site had xyz and their is nothing special about it...

I NEVER SAID THAT THE SITE WAS GOOD ON INFORMATION!!! I SAID THE SITE ITSELF LOOKED AWESOME!!

Also You and the rest of the Negative nancy's can bite me, because at least I talk about the good side of things.. all I see on the forums is making the game look bad when there are good things to say about it as well.

If you look at the this Thread here:

http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/threads/48945-Hamlet-Seal-Drop-Rate

I'M COMPLETELY AGAINST THIS!

So please amuse me by all I say on the forums are good things.. I just merely want this game to succeed, and there's more to a game succeeding than just throwing out the bad stuff about it.. If you don't talk about what is good, they could change that too, just because they feel like the want too.. If you want things to stay.. you need to talk about them as well.

And also, Your an Ignorant delusional Tinhat for the same reasons as me just that I'm Positive and your Negative.

I'm wasn't here to argue with anyone, but you called me out so I thought I drop by to say hi, or I wouldn't be here.

Honestly, SE hasn't showed anything but glossy screenshots. Really nothing of note to get heated over, and sure as **** nothing to praise them for. The site looks like ***. It's a black background with framed screenshots and concept art most of us viewed last month. Some of the concept art was shown before then.

You're going to need more than pretty drawings to sell your game. SE is losing time, and seems to have absolutely nothing to show for it's work. I guess I fall in the "negative nancy" bandwagon. Until I see tangible evidence I'm convinced this game is headed for the cliff.

Well... the thing is - if these are screenshots, couldn't they like, fire up their pre-alpha game and take a few more? Like why is there only that handful that we've already seen? It just seems pretty meh to have them put up a site that has a tiny handful of screenies we already saw. I mean, even if they added some new ones people might be less underwhelmed. And it really isn't much to ask to ask them to take a couple more screenies, is it? I mean, unless this is all just concept art posing as screenshots - cause if so... well they're hosed.

Wow...

Someone really ****** in your cheerios today didn't they?

There's adding to a discussion, and then there's this.

Personally I'm still awaiting their "torrent" of information they promised, and I agree in that skipping E3 was probably the dumbest thing they could've done. Even if "no one attends" (which is BS) all eyes are still fixed there for a short while. It was a missed opportunity on their part.

I'm not going to discount this site for what it is though... a teaser site. It's an official place to view what has been released thus far. I think it'd be odd if they didn't have an official site with this stuff up. Being official at least affords some consistency in the delivery of information. Knowing that yea it's still lacking, even for a teaser. I see no reason to flip out and spew bile at each other over it though. ****.

Uh.. no.. I don't White Knight at all.. I just merely state my Opinions like anyone else does. I don't command a force, I'm my own person with Opinions just like you and everyone else.

Now can we stop throw out my name or anyone else's please?

The site is mainly for New people , in face 2.0 is Focused on New players, so of course I don;t expect this site to have New Info right away. Are people really that impatient to wait 1 month to get the flood of information? Consider the website Groundwork for the flood that is to come August 15-19th (Gamescom). Or even Earlier Japan Expo (7/712) I'm not holding my breath on that though.

See I can troll just like you guys, Am I cool now? oh wait....

Actually yeah, you are not the white knight commander, that would be Elexia or w/e his/her name is, you are actually pretty neutral sometimes, if i recall.

As far as the teaser site, well it blows really, no other way to put it, they told us they where "Holding out" for what ? the same screenshots we have seen ? Would it cost SE anything to actually go and throw in some screenshots and make some sound ? I mean take a screen of some unknown monster that would play no major part, but i bet it would have the main forum talking for weeks about "What do you think X monster is" blablabla because there is really nothing else to do besides to speculate about the game at this point in time, that is my point.

and nobody is trolling... atleast i am not at the moment XD!

Well, this could be the reason why: The site itself isn't really done yet.. and people on the forums cried begged, for it to come because they said " Soon after E3" and it didn't come and like 1 a week there's like a new thread about it. tbh I wasn't expecting new information out of this site.

Quote:
Both teaser and promo sites are also due to go live very soon, so please look forward to a constant barrage of updates!


There's 2 sites going to be going up it looks like, This is the teaser site, the Promo site is coming obviously when they promote the game fully in August.. and will get our new info in the Promo website.

Teaser website is just something to get the buzz going for new and old people.. so yes I'm disappointed that the only difference so far is the Background. However.. a Teaser site is ment to do just that.. Tease you.. not to give you a bucket loads of information. that's for the Promo site ^.^.

They're "holding out" until they have something to show. I don't know why anyone actually believes SE when they speak these days. Until I see the alpha ready for download, I consider 2.0 vaporware.

This is not about discussion. This time it’s personal. When you were forced to look at blatant **** every **** second post in the official forum, just because someone was so incredibly delusional that EVEN AFTER TWO ******* YEARS he told everyone to happily run after the carrot-stick just a few days… weeks… months longer, defending every single obviously completely stupid thing just because “someone has to say something nice”, I see red. I mean, even in real life, I hate those guys. When there’s a mountain of bile and ****, they will say: “Just wait a bit. A flower will emerge from it eventually. Or not. But who needs flowers anyway. Perhaps SE has even better things in store for us than flowers… OH LOOK! There’s an AWESOME CARROT ON A STICK!!! Yayayay! I told you so!”

@Ostia
Huh? I always thought Starlord and Elexia were the same guy… same style of writing, and it’s hard to believe mother nature actually made the same mistake twice.



Now, let’s defuse this, before a mod *rightfully* bans me. Starlord, perhaps you are a nice guy. Perhaps a little too nice for my taste, but perfectly o.k. And perhaps I’m overreacting. But after half a year of reading your posts and not being able to rate those abominations down into oblivion something just snapped when you showed up here. Especially since you grace us with the same **** yet again:

Quote:

Say, you still don’t get it. It’s not our fault that we expect information when it was promised for “soon after the E3”. Especially since the trailer promised for E3 wasn’t delivered either. And “soon after E3” is not 3 months later. Because when SE says August, it’s either August 30 1/2, or during the first weeks of September.

Yeah, sure. It took them 5 weeks to post some screenshots, so they totally have yet another site in the making. Like, just around the corner. Like, this isn't the real game. It's just the alpha site. Just wait and see, there will be a miracle patch in a few weeks. No? Well, who needs a miracle patch anyway. OH LOOK! There’s an AWESOME CARROT ON A STICK!!!

I have. I am more appalled at the distaste you guys have over one small teaser web page. You do have to keep in mind that S-E/Yoshida has said repeatedly that the site will contain old info we have seen before as well as new info mixed in as well.

They said there will be more info in the future, the first being the trailer in August. It's July and all I'm seeing is "wah wah wah" from the people here. I am more glad that they took the misleading old website down. You know, the one that said Pugilist still learns Steal. The old website made me really angry and distasteful. 1000x times more than this one does.

That sounds about right. Just because you hates someones way of thinking, doesn't me to bash them down when:

A) They didn't do anything to you
B) Everyone has different ways of thinking wouldn't be fun if everyone had the same thinking as you
C) We all have different opinions weather you like it or not is up to you, but bashing them saying their opinion(s) are crap makes your opinions no less than crap too.


Yes, you have every right to feel this way because they took "Exactly 1 month" to get the site up 6/5/12 ( E3 start date) 7/5/12 (Teaser Trailer start date). I feel for everyone that's been looking forward to this.

However, like I said on the forums, I can't wait for 2.0 beta then the Website. That's where it really counts the most.

Look, I know your a good guy/girl and stuff like that, maybe you had a bad day at work, got fired, whatever your case maybe.. and I understand its life. but taking it out on someone you don't even know or whatever, is wrong.

Anyways, I hope there's hope and joy in your life that will get you through the rest of your day.

God Bless =)

It is bad.. I have hope and want it to succeed more than any other game, but come on . . There is a difference between being realistic and overly positive. Releasing a teaser site with the same pictures we saw two weeks(maybe more?) ago is ridiculous.

*The reason people are so ******* angry with SE is because they say something and everyone's eyes light up and we all hold our breath, click!. . . . disappointment. People like Rinsui have grown thick skin to avoid that feeling instead of deluding himself into seeing a diamond in a pile of ****.

You forgot to insert "happily" and "patiently" into that statement. There's, like, hordes of players all around the world happily and patiently waiting in line, and SE doesn't need any pre-launch publicity anyway, because, like, it's FINAL FANTASY. So everybody already knows it will be EPIC.

P.S.: Some idiot on the official forums recently wrote that it is only the NA players who keep "******** and whining" about the game. That's absolutely not true, and whoever that guy was definitely doesn't speak a word of Japanese, French, or German. For strange reasons of mixed heritage, I can actually read all the forums (though I have to take my time with the French one), and the frustration about RNG, stretched out content, RMT/Bot/Multicharacter Exploits, and the complete lack of true, reliable information apart from "We will perhaps take it into consideration. Perhaps." is exactly the same wherever you look at. Here, first page general forum hot topics:

Japanese: 増加している業者キャラに関して(About the increasing number of RMT).
English: RMTs are starting to bother me...
French: Il faut faire quelque chose pour les logiciels bot en libre circulation ! (You have to do something about all those bot programs in circulation!)
German: Masamune überfüllt mit RMTs (Masamune overflowing with RMT)

And I could go and search for exactly matching posts for every single other complaint (RNG, Lack of info - boy, there's a really, really angry post on the Japanese forum about that - and anything else). So don't tell me that it's just a few US whiners.

Me too :D It's why I keep coming back. This place has great debates without the sort of trolling you see on mmo-champ and such.

We are over-reacting a little and perhaps prematurely. As was said Yoshi indicated we should not expect anything until the TGS (Tokyo Games Show). At least now there is an official source to turn to for screenshots. Before you had to hunt through fansites to get the pictures from E3.

Yoshi has been able to turn the game into something that is worth commenting on again. I cautiously remain optimistic and trust he will continue to perform as he has up until now.

That said, there is also good reason to be concerned. The players are already hyper-sensitive and wary of SE's promise to 'change' the way they communicate and operate. Yoshi's promise to deliver a flood the information for 2.0 was the right one in my opinion because of the players wariness. There is a great need for SE to overwhelm players with information not surprise them with old information and reminders of promises made months ago. It is too much like what we experienced at launch.

Must be because it's a largely anarchic old-school forum with big, red, satisfying "rate down" buttons.
Where you can risk to bring up ideas from other games without being silenced by a mod or "LOLOLOL
WOW FANBOY!!!" without backlash from people supporting your standpoint. I mean, Alla is rough.
And dirty. And it allows me to sometimes be insulting, irrational and most of all: biased and unfair.
But that's what I like about it. Because you actually have to defend your position. There is no pansy
friendly pink cloud of "we are all friends, so let's behave" that allows stupidity to survive indefinitely.

P.S.:
There's far too much of that cloud surrounding SE games lately. When **** stinks, someone has to
shout ***************** unmistakably and loud enough for even the deafest Dev to hear, because if there is
just a tiny minority that downplays or relativizes the smell, there's a high chance the same **** will
still be stinking around months and years later.

"Oh, it's not that bad. Once you get used to it, mouse controls are fine. If you don't like the UI, go
play WoW. The next patch will fix everything. It's just the beta. The teaser site is just the beta.
OH LOOK! There's an AWESOME CARROT ON A STICK!

Why should we have to wait until august to see a new website? There's nothing that spectacular that their going to be relaunching and all your doing is letting down the rest of the community. We did wait and still they have not delivered, there have been games with more promise that have died so why this game still continues to live baffles me.

To quote the best author on Allakhazam (myself):

because, like, it's FINAL FANTASY. So everybody already knows it will be EPIC.

Good game play is what will get people to resubscribe, not a **** poem.

I don't know... there's a crystal in the background. We didn't necessarily know there would be any crystals, did we?

Wow! There's the same crystal in the background of the language selection screen now, too (don't forget to press F5!)
SE really delivers - a real flood, considering the avalanche of information revealed today at the Japan Expo in France!

I mean - who wouldn't have been thrilled into submission by Yoshida suddenly taking the stage, turning on the beamers for
his one-hour presentation of the future of Final Fantasy XIV, to shock us with the very same screenshots that have been
circulating since E3 and were uploaded on the great new teaser site just the day before. An avalanche. Groundbreaking.
Earth-shattering.

Btw, here's a real gem from the official forum:
Quote:
I'm pretty sure that Miqo'te has been around before somewhere. (...) I'm fairly sure that's from before FFXIV was even released.

That's the beauty with being as slow as SE is with releasing new info: the old info becomes so old, that few of those who
have seen the original are still around to remember. So you can always sell the old stuff as "brand new concept art".

Does Gamescom mean anything to anyone? Because thats where the flood is coming.. when they do the MARKETING CAMPAIGN!

Here's the site that says just that:

http://gdl.square-enix.com/ffxiv/download/en/FFXIV_2.0_Roadmap_EN.pdf

"2.0 Maketing Campaign in August (Includes the Trailer)"

Not June....

Not July.....

AUGUST!!

That's is all...

Hate to burst your bubble, but SE doesn't do marketing campaign. Unless you consider a campaign a few screenshots at a games expo and a trailer on their youtube page.
