Kombo Writes: "This will also be the first online Square Enix title to not use the Play Online system. Sadly, this means players won't be able to transfer their Final Fantasy XI characters into XIV."
I bet you they are going to use the new SE account system which just came out a couple months ago. Maybe It will make things much more simple. Hopefully our SE account usernames will be our in-game names as well, so we can keep track of friends throughout multiple SE titles. (kind of like psn or xbl for SE games)
Good as playonline blows chunks!
YES!!! playonline was a useless tool that kept getting in the way. was waiting for something like this now i can sell my ff11 account.
....because that sh1t sucked donkey schlong. It was such a pain in the arse to sign up, and even sign IN, just to play.
hmmm I just want them to incorporate the wallet system now so I can easily pay with the psn cards :( I've had a bad history with a credit card and if they allow me to use psn cards to pay my monthly bill I'll have no complaints at all!
thank god, play online sucks
You took the words right out of my mouth. I might actually sign up for this game when it comes out.
omg Thank God
My tarupredictions: No Playonline (confirmed) No zoning No exp-party only consisting of 6 persons Diferent ways to gain exp Level sync available More action oriented Customisable menu A tutorial will teach you how to play from the begining of the game More questing for EXP, kinda what WoW does, but keeping the teamplay Flying chocobos, dragons and magic animals Moogle race Male mithras Interaction with Home Trophies Jumping and griping to edges to access difficult places Man, this game can't come soon enough, I don't even care if it comes to the toaster.
How about acquiring gil a much simpler way instead of the broken way they had it (which I didn't mind, but it took FOREVER to get a good source of income going). Oh, and on the toaster? HAHAHA! + Bubbles for that. I could imagine them trying that.
That's more of a wishlist really. This is SE we are talking about here. SE... FFXI has taught them that people will pay for insane timesinks. They do solid business with the timesinks that are in place in ffxi. Why would they change what has been proven to work? The only thing I'm going to hope for is the ability to create a new character without having to pay an extra dollar per month for it. That's not asking for a lot. But like I said, This is SE we are talking about.
Thank God! PlayOnline was THE reason why I never got this game to work properly! Just use the PSN and or Steam or something to facilitate online, please SE! Don't pull a Konami with MGO... >.<
