FFXIV: ARR = FFXI 10000.0 ?Follow

Read on before judging. I know there are a significant amount of differences between ARR and FFXI (which I loved and played a long time), such as battle mechanics, menus, general usability, quest and XP mechanics, etc, but after watching the most recent live letter I really feel like XIV ARR is shaping up to be the FFXI that I really always wanted. The landscapes look great, the textures are sharp, the overall graphics shown in the video are really breathtaking, the world seems alive, and most importantly, it really looks like the Final Fantasy Environments we are used to. I praise Yoshida for the excellent work he's done thus far in reshaping XIV and taking it in such a stellar direction.


I cannot wait to explore the beautiful areas they have in store for us......and boom goes the dynamite

It's nothing like FFXI (besides the reused FFXI monster models).

Is there a way to block someone's posts so you don't have to read them?

Hover near their name and a drop box opens, its at the bottom [ignore], you will still see their name in posts but it will be collapsed so you can't see what they are saying without clicking on it. Sadly there is no known cure on how to avoid when they make a new post, it shows it.....

Sadly, there is also no known cure for the people who keep quoting the person you have on ignore.
I think I have 2 or 3 people on my ignore list, but I always end up seeing their stuff anyway. Smiley: disappointed

Even though this is my own post I'll shoot myself in the foot and clarify for everyone. I think he was asking how to block ME, not Killua125. I think he was quoting Killua124 and then basically saying "yea for real, how do I block this poster?"

I'm quite sure he was asking how to block me. Smiley: wink

But really, there's no similarities at all between FFXI and FFXIV, besides the typical Final Fantasy themed inserts like Chocobo, Moogle, crystals, etc.

I don't really see similarities between Gridania and Windurst. I think Windurst has more character. Gridania just has a lot of trees.

For gameplay, FFXIV is pretty much like World of Warcraft.

They both allow gamepad and will be cross platform? lol that for me makes them very similar in the way that they play.

I was hoping when Poubelle got muted that it would be the end of obnoxious posters. Killua125 does spark some interesting discussion though with his "sky is falling using no logical basis and I refuse to believe otherwise" mentality.

I wasn't even necessarily saying anything in a negative way. There just isn't really many similarities between FFXI and FFXIV: ARR.

I think there were some definite similarities (and a ton of differences) during 1.xx of FFXIV, but Yoshi-P clearly moved as far as he could from FFXI with ARR, and those similarities have been ironed out.

Yes. Go to the pawn shop, purchase a gun, and stick it in your mouth. Then you won't have to live in a world where everything doesn't go your way every second of every day. :)

Anyways, this post is supposed to be a GOOD thing. FFXIV is going to be great. But hey, what do I know?


I wasn't talking about you. Also, you really need to chill the **** out.

You can't delete comments, neither can I actually. You can a) edit the content or b) I can nuke the comment which makes it unviewable but it's out there forever.

Consider it a warning that it's never cool to tell someone to kill themselves ok? Even in jest.

Let's see. All the races mimic those from FFXI. The 3 "nations" are similar to the 3 in FFXI. One character can play all classes. Many of the same enemy groups from FFXI. Many of the same class/jobs. Mogs, Chocobos, airships, many of the same items, a similar art style, many of the same/similar spells and ancient magic, many of the same or similar weaponskills, Cross-platform, Ability to play with a controller, macros... and that's just stuff I thought off the top of my head.

It's not a replica of FFXI due to different gameplay, combat, crafting, etc... but it absolutely does have a lot of similarities to FFXI. Perhaps if you stopped stating things like they are facts because you said it, people wouldn't be so aggrivated by your overly smug, know-it-all posts... especially considering you're usually exaggerating or making gross assumptions.

I think it goes without saying Final Fantasy games will have some similarities across the board. Moogles, as far as I know, are specifically unique to the Final Fantasy series so it's inevitable that you'll come across them as you play the games in the series. The same goes for Chocobos.I would even go as far as saying that you'll come across names of spells, abilities, characters, and summoned creatures that are familiar from the previous myriad of Final Fantasy games.

Think about this, Cid has appeared in just about all the games and odds are you've come across him. It's not always the exact same character but there are similarities as to who he is and what he does.

OP never said it even WAS like XI, you just put it in your head that's what was said so that you could input your two cents, which wasn't even relevant. You asked what you did wrong, you acted like a troll. It's the type of behavior that will make people not really give a crap what you post and want to just ignore you. Just thought I'd let ya know, since you asked.
