that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm You Can't Access

cant be played on weekends? I played the game flawlessly on tues, wed and thursday without ANY of the login issues that everyone was having/talking about (though this was on a JO sever) however from the last 2 days I havent been able to get on at all, either lobby server wouldnt load, wouldnt updated jp character list, or the world is full (or a connection error occurred)

Id say SE fell on their sword with this one, they do all this to make the game not suck compared to 1.0 and ppl cant even pay it. I for one would take a subpar game that I can actually play over a good one that I cant play 99% of the time.

They have 49 servers and 37 of them are closed for registration.. at this rate SE would have to both DOUBLE the amount of servers they have AND significantly (double) increase the capacity of their existing ones. I bet EVERY review for this game is gonan spent half the review talking about how horribly difficult it was to review the game due to hardly ever being able to play rather than actually talking about the game itself.

"Cons-combat, targeting was a mess, found it slow, frustrating and unsatisfying
-chat, with no voice chat it just adds to the frustration while in a dungeon or mid combat
-no interactions, no collecting or searching the world for anything
-quests, I thought the quests were extremely boring and not just the 100s of fetch quests but the dungeons themselves, I can't see myself wanting to return to any of them.
-interface, I found the controls and menus just as frustrating, nothing was seamless or effortless."

I don't really get it.

I'm really friendly in-game but the reason I'm having trouble is that the Duty Finder always pairs you with people from other servers and you can't be friends with them. So, the people you were partying with end up being like NPCs lol.

I've been having some chats with cool people in-game over /shout and stuff, but it's difficult to ask other people in /shout to party up or anything because we're all the same class pretty much (class based areas).

I'm on Midgardsormr. I have some friends already playing but I'm trying to meet people and it's tough on this game compared to other games.

Anyone else having issues?

welcome to the 21st century MMO.... where ppl actually think its ok for a MASSIVELY MULTIPL
aYER game to be as soially interactive and teamwork based as a single player game.... it would seem im the only one who understand that if i wanted to play a game by myself theres 35 other Final Fantasies i can do just that in (and single player games in general) but apparently single player focus also has to be the majority rule in MMOs now days otherwise its "outdated" Clearly I dont know what the MM part of MMO means anymore lol -waits for the rate downs-

lol so youre saying if back when we were voting on the unofficial cst/est server and teh ZAM< server and you voted Gilgamesh (for example) Gilgamesh won the votes.. now you try to create a character on that server (the one you planned to join and voted on months ago). youd be completely fine with that and join a different server and miss out on joining the zam FC? I seriously doubt that.

In my case theres an RP community on Gilgamesh.. sure i could very easily create on any server now then transfer whenever character transfer hits, however i planned to RP as a lost newbie, you learns and grows... now with how easy/fast it is to level on this game i might be a level 50 in multiple classes by the time world transfer comes out (which would be sad if i could achieve that in this game considering i work 40 hours a week.) would be kinda hard to RP as a totally clueless/lost newbie when youre a level 50 battle hardened powerhouse/veteran wouldnt you say? lol


Its not a permanent restriction ... so I don't understand why you would be upset


read last paragraph.

the only wY TO "FIX" THAT PROBLEM WOULD BE HOLD OFF PLAYING UNTIL THE "CRISIS" IS AVERTED AND THE SERVER I WANT BECOMES UNLOCKED (opps had caps on) now that would be fine and dandy (i have 20+ other games i havent even played yet waiting would be extremely easy for me) except a family member took off the next two days from work (my normal off days) to play with me 24/7 those days (at least its paid off days) so now im kinda obligated to play with him the next two days otherwise those days he took off would be a waste and coulda been saved/used for something else lol. So yeah.

Q. You mentioned that in patch 2.1 there will be item level requirements for accessing content, but what will the requirement be for Crystal Tower?
A. We don’t plan on making it as high as the Binding Coil of Bahamut. We’re thinking about having a relic weapon be required.
So crystal tower is supposed to be more casual/easier than Coil but Se might make a relic requirement for crystal tower? So getting a relic is a casual task? Based on that Im gonna guess 90% of the lvl 50population has a relic. Guess theyre not even half as rare or powerful despite being the best weapons in ffxiv) as relic in that other game whos name i wont mention

I also don't post crap about the game sucks to various degrees,


Point us to the thread where I said "this game sucks" and youd have officially proven your point and "won" this.

Pointing out thing you dont like about a game =/= "this game sucks" You ever read a game reviews? Ive seen games get 8, 9s and even 10s yet the review still sites PROs AND CONs soooo since he/she listed CONs the whole review and review score of now invalid and the person now thinks/says the game sucks just because he/she said a few negative things about it? oookay

Such is life, my friend. Such is life.


the difference is this.

lets ssay Im saving up money for the best NVIDIA card there is right now. I reach or get close to that goal but havent puchased it yet. Then i see a new or better one is coming out. I just start saving up for that one instead and forget about the previous one.

at that rate i lost/wasted nothing. thats better than getting 3 out of 5 piece of AF +1 then all of a sudden a new set of armor comes out thats better and now you have to start working on that whereas that af+1 you didnt even get the chance to finish was now a waste of time and you cant get the currency you wasted on it back to put towards the new stuff

If this story was told by anyone but you, I would have found it a really interesting and unique tale of a first-time player and probably given some positive advice for you. But seriously Duo? All you've done over the past several months here is whine about stuff that you hadn't even tried yet, and complained about how the game was going to be "too easy" and how "ffxi was so much better" and how you were such an awesome player in XI that was able to tackle every challenge when it first came out (I distinctly recall you claiming to have beat CoP before the nerfs because that was the REAL challenge)... and yet you continually wipe to Sastasha? The first dungeon? The tutorial dungeon where the toughest mechanic is clicking on a grate when bubbles form on it? Wow. You seriously need to reevaluate your MMO abilities if you had a tough time with that, regardless if half your party was JP players. Sorry for the negativity in your thread, you've just been doing it on this forum for so long that I felt it was only fair to give some back. I'll gladly take a sub-default for this post.


well first off FFXIV and FFXI have completely different aggro/linking/gameplay mechanics so that took some getting used too. secondly i also wiped on every CoP fight multiple times before winning but we still did it pre nerf so I fail to see your point? Now had i said "we beat every CoP fight pre nerf on our first try" and THEN came here saying i wiped on Sashasta THEN i would agree that my abilities need to be reevaluated.

Glad to see you actually pay attention though. I was under the impression that no one actually reads my posts and just automatically hit a red arrow anything they see anything with my name in it

edit: but anyway about to do my first Tam tarra ( or w/e) run n ow. Now that Im got the party ,echanics down. I can assure you thi sis gonna bgo 100000 times better than that last dunegon

I mean use SOME degree of common sense. Lets say Im the best FFXI player that ever was.. does that mean I could jump on WoW right now for the first time and kick *** like Ive been playing the game for 20 years? No because theyre two different games. Thats usually not how that works. When doing something new you have to start from the bottom and build up to "uber" all over again. The worlds best Street Fighter players isnt gonna automatically be the worlds best Tekken player too.

THAT was what I was getting at, this topic was not to "topple FFXIV and all its fanbois" infact it wasnt even released to FFXIV... so yeah, now that you know my ACTUAL intend for this thread as opposed to just making assumptions, please do feel free to answer the question now.

Except for AF gear you get at 45/50 Doesn't all the dps pretty much wear the same thing ? (besides DRG which can wear scale armor but i'd assume most DRG use that when they solo) don't both tanks wear the same thing? Don't all the mages wear the same thing ? Why is it a big deal with DL gear?

If you get the Green gear from the lv 15-17 story dungeons all the dps is pretty much the same except a few head pieces seem to be different. Tank gear same, mage gear same
If you get the green gear from Braylox Battle mage gear same for all mages, DD gear same for all DD , tank gear same for both Tanks ?

so lets get to DL gear .. Tank gear same, DD mage gear.. same, healer mage gear.. same DD gear basically the same with a few minor details

So its been pretty much the same the whole entire game but now its an Issue ?

at those levels most ppl are under geared or arent farming dungeons to get full gear sets and you hardly ever play with the same person twice.. so you rarely see it... whereas at 50 just about everyone gets their act together and everyone is wearing it at least expected to wear DL, so although everyone COULD be wearing the same armor at low levels its not as noticeable or seen as it is at 50, especially since youre changing equipmenet every 2-5 levels anyway... doesnt happen that fast or at all at 50


at lv 50 There is also Vanya gear , Dark steel gear, Militia gear, WP gear, AK gear Allagan gear, and a few other.... Plus who doesn't farm gear in lower dungeons? you maybe? spamming dungeons at low lvs isn't just getting gear i'ts a great way to get gear and xp so a lot of ppl do it. And If you did farm the gear you wouldn't have to change gear every 2-3 lvs because dungeon gear is good for awhile .

And not noticeable ? go to Coerthas and see how many mages still wearing Battlemage gear or lv 15-20 wearing the Red DD armor Foestrikers I think. If you stay in an area long enough you will see alot of the same which is why hanging in a lv 50 area like Mor Dohna you will see alot of DL gear
