StrengthGamer.com: "When you log on to play Final Fantasy XIV, you are greeted with a very nice message (shown below). Apparently Square Enix understands that the world of Final Fantasy XIV has the potential to well, take over one's life."
I got the CE and can't stop playing. In fact, I didn't even notice this warning I was so anxious to play. hahaha
I would never pay for this game. Ever.
bought the CE. have all the bonus items and I've already unsubscribed. game is a joke.
I'm going to show you why it is bad, not just state text. Final Fantasy XIV “Nothing But Copy-Paste" (They copy/paste all terrain like a stamp set) http://www.sankakucomplex.c... Still dont believe me? Look at these zone maps.. http://www.sankakucomplex.c... Even a video of the zones and how boringly repetitive they made them.. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Look how exciting it is run/explore... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Sure looks like a 'quality' game, not. This game reeks of rushed job and clearly shows it; VERY stale. This is not an MMO that will thrive long once people see it for what it is; not just the company name. I pity anyone who puts time into this, there is much better things you can do with your time. This game does NOT deserve your time. All MMO's are setup to 'suck you in' but that doesn't mean they are good or worth being sucked into.
Yeah- playing it right now actually. It's good, but it's not THAT good haha
lol mayb you can take down the king of mmo- im looking at you wow
How many times have I heard that. Honestly the only mmo that will kill wow will probably be made by..... blizzard.
Thats because all MMO freaks are Blizzard fanboys, even if their games are not that good.
Unlike other companies, who push out a POS and everyone goes back to the most polished game out there. I dont play mmo's anymore but i've givent ALOT a shot, the most polished MMO that i've never regretted buying is WoW. AOC, WAR, FFXI,FFXIV, ETC etc are all shitty and you can see they were limited by either shitty staff, or a low budget (they rely on sub's to make it better down the road---if it lives that long). This is just another below average MMO (FFXIV) to add to the list, Age of Conan was better than this..
If you'd ask random people in the street, I bet most of them didn't even hear about FFXIV. WoW is a phenomenom. It was in the right place at the right time, got all the media attention and hype which resulted in over 10 million subscribers. Something like that is not repeatable within the MMO genre. It's not 2005 anymore.
Got the ce from work not Going too pay for it the games rather bad. Shame I rather enjoy mmo's
But it has many flaws. If you're rolling caster in this game you will have a hard time soloing and don't get as much SP (skill points) as the physical classes do. You also have somewhat bigger down time as a caster. I wish I could do more than 8 levequest every 36 hours as well. I've heard that they are going to lower it to 24 or 12 hours. Anima should get a lesser cool down as well. 4 every 24 hours is a pain in the ass when most teleports costs 2-6 anima and you have a max of 100. I hope they lower the anima CD to 1 anima each 1-2 hours. There's a party bug as well that gives you less SP if you're in a party consisting of more than 2 members so you should forget getting big groups for leveling for now. Other than that this is a great mmo, there's always something to do and if you get fatigued you can always play as another class. This game isn't that user friendly tho. So casuals should probably go wow. I know this had nothing to do with the article but the article is bad and shouldn't be considered news anyway.
Same message they had with FFXI, only this time around it actually isn't as heavy as FFXI. Back then the game really could ruin your life with all the grinding time :P this one just seems sort of like child's play compared to the past chapter. *punches a wall* Freakin' PS3 version is so long away...
Yea this is nothing new :\ they had this on 11 as well. 11 DID ruin my life lol
They still ave to fix a couple things but there isnt a MMO better then this. Im sure the people who dont like it do not have a strong enough PC to run it. Either way i say give it a while its still new and once all these LITTLE problems are ironed out it will be the best.
The way the game works and the way they build up the maps it can't be the best MMO ever =x I mean, I stopped playing WoW because I got bored, probably will go back in cataclysm, but there is allways something to call me back, and there is allways cool places to go and explore, in FF14 the map is almost a tileset with great graphics =/ Guild Wars 2 has potential to be better than FF14, Star Wars just looks a lot Fan Service, like FF14, wich is good =) but it won't call everyone... FF14 looks a lot like Monster Hunter in certain mechanics not in overall gameplay, it's like a mix of your ussual MMO + Monster Hunter (and I love MH) but Guild Wars 2 seems more inovative and original.
i dont no how ff14 is like MH but to each his own... One thing you are right about (as i do not argue online) is i should of wrote "its the best MMO TO ME" I never liked wow, GW, or star wars, but ff11 i played for 5 years. So any ff11 player should love this game as its far better IMO.
I bought FFXIV on a whim, never played the first one. However I am pleasantly surprised how well the game is made. The only issues are that there is a lot of lag from the mass amount of players. Good game and harder than 90% of the MMOs out there and that is a good thing. You will not find the instant gratification of other games, this is more like old EQ than anything else.
great ame everyone should try it!!!
Bought the C/E, been playing it solid and can't put it down. I can already tell this one is going to suck a looot of life from me. I'm sure it will be a bit confusing for some at the start but the more you get used to how things actually work, the more addicted you get!
I put at least 40 hours into it already and im hooked
i'm hooked leveld maurauder, then stopped to level conjurer to level for for cure then pugilist to six for second wind during the maurauders bloodbath cooldown time.. to me, playing solo on ffxiv is like a combo of playing my dark knight and beastmaster on ffxi... not enough mobs or quests though..havent tackled crafting yet, thinking about fishing for off time and blacksmithing for repairs
