I don't think those people are asking for reused Colibri .DATs, and on that subject: why are so many FFXIV fans hostile towards FFXI players?

Yes, cause there's no possible way I'm joking...and no possible way that I'm a fan and player of FFXI...

That's an interesting idea... Have some monsters go, temporarily, extinct and another set of place holders move in until we kick them out and slowly you start to see the old sets of monsters move back in. Maybe not but it wouldn't be insane if everyone was killing a type of monster for a long time in a zone that the population should diminish. Especially in the areas that have packs of monsters hanging out together.

Kill all the ladybugs and the fungi move in, kill all those and the chigo (mosquitoes) move in and you start to see lady bugs again, then you kill the blood suckers and lady bugs are back... then here comes the fungi, etc. Maybe that's to much living environment for a game? It sounds cool to me though.

I thought they did some of that in Wings of the Goddess (FFXI). At least I remember them selling the idea before the expansion.

It's the kind of feature that sounds neat as a selling point, but doesn't generally result in the game actually being more fun. Classic case of realism=! fun.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

They did, with the pixies.. if people refrained from slaughtering them in the past, they'd show up in the present.

That wasn't a tough sell, pixies are super helpful to have around and there was no particular need to kill them so it wasn't really a decision.

It was an interesting idea in theory, they just didn't do much with it. Actually, I feel like they squandered the **** out of the whole time travel thing in Wings of the Goddess. That could've led to some interesting storytelling that never happened.

The time travel in FFXI was neat. They kept the same areas, but they did a real good job in showing how those areas changed over time.

In ARR, they're just going for a 5 year transition, and besides reorganizing the areas, they don't appear to have different moods or anything. I wish they had gone forward 50 years or something.

There'd probably be naught left after "The Dragon" had his way unchecked for 50 years.

Those screenshots are awesome. That's the level of atmosphere and charm that the environments in 1.0 sorely lacked.

Would be very cool if we had another back in time expansion, but what about a forward in time? Like you go through a portal and bam you're in a futuristic world. Then we can bring back laser guns and light sabers to slay our foes in the past and present!

(Maybe not lightsabers lol. A 5th element type of world comes to mind though.)

Many XIV fans hate XI and want it closed down, they are even mad it's getting updates and expansions. They want all the XI players to be on XIV, which obviously isn't going to happen anymore than XI players all swapping to WoW when that game launched. No matter how similar it looks there are very important reasons they won't just swap.

Also that Coli model is identical in every single way, there is zero difference at all.

I have a lightsaber! It drops from Arch Dynamis Lord. It looks like a normal rusty sword until you bring it out to attack and then it glows. (And occasionally aura steals buffs from monsters, so I can half-tank Shinryu on my bard with it since I keep stealing his damage immunity.)

What about the XIV players who are still playing XI? Why doesn't our opinion matter? We're the ones paying SE the most money.

#50Killua125, Posted: Apr 17 2013 at 12:31 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) He's exaggerating, but not totally wrong. There is a lot of hostility towards XI from XIV players. On the official boards, it seems like the longtime (all level 50) type XIV folks will trash talk XI whenever possible. If anyone says they want something from XI in XIV, they'll probably get abused somewhat. I've seen tons of "FFXI is ****/worst game ever/even 1.0 was better" type comments get tons of Like!s there. So, I don't really know what's up with all that.

Yeah, that's called the "internet," and hardly unique to XI and XIV.
