i was in FFXI since the begining , before Zilart ... FFXI always has been and always will be PT centric game , that whats makes it unique , and i prefer it that way , it gives the game a real Role Playing feel to it ... You end up meeting pretty interesting people and talk about other people who knew other interesting people and so on and on ... i remember back in the days , log in JUST to read lower jeuno chat and the chat from the LS wile waiting for a PT with my MNK.......

i agree with this post and i feel the same.

FF11 and a lot of stuff before today's "standard" had a ton of stuff that can not seem to be replicated or brought back.

When i logged into ff11 I had endless things to do from exploration/bcnm/missions/quests to actually role play in game and follow story deeper/balista/etc/etc/etc I was never for a second pressured and pushed along as fast as possible from the content of the game just to get to endgame and grind for gears.

I never have had a problem with party centric theme it was one of the things that made the game so great, most of the people that complained and left were the ones that expected everything to be handed to them, they never even bothered to make their own pt/etc.

party oriented mmorpg is a good thing because it makes people socialize and why would anyone play a online game to play solo mode anyways?
really could of not been said better than posted above. Almost all mmorpg nowadays are all soloable and people don't even bother to socialize or don't care how good they even play because it didn't matter.

now to abyssea:

the fact the decline needed some kind of adjustment is understandable, but they way they radically completely changed the game almost over night was the wrong way to go about it. The game was already easy as it was and even added a lot of nice features to help people get levels without depending on people, but the way the game changed for the worst put off a lot of veterans and made people never unable to return to the game they loved.

from the new focus on "skill spam/alliance battle with little tactics or very minimal effort put was almost a turn for the worst. From the leechers doing absolutely nothing and getting rewarded for it to removing a lot of the challenge in the game. They could of done it a lot better than that.

the worst part was the fact almost everything was Abyssea only focus and completely neglected a lot of the game content and regions/gears/etc and turned the strategy social game into another turd fest.


Abyssea was also the reason i stop playing it myself i could not stand the "rush to cap/ trow strategy out the window and just trow anything/class/etc and win no matter what/etc.
this issue with abyssea was nothing new anyways its been discussed and bleed dry by now lol.


on topic:
the cut scene is nice but its typical todays SE where the main focus is all on "graphics" and neglect on story etc.

Wish for the best of the game if this one fails them again it will surely bite them harder than anything before.


by the way nekroturkey won't even bother to argue with fellow OCN members (love my fellow members) but everything you posted just sounds like nerd rage Fanboyism lol.

I still find it hilarious you keep stating I am closed minded of sort where my original post said "copy ELEMENTS from ff11 not copy the entire dam thing lol.

you even went out of your way to pull out Chewbacca defences lol:

ill leave this here for you

your post+ this video just made me ROTFLMAO


I am not for one alone on this topic by the way

these are just a few from many of the same. Hence my original post.

I played the game back when it launched and was pretty excited. It was a bit buggy back then and my RL friends quit because of that and they were to dumb to understand the game and didn't wanna bother putting forth the effort to learn were to go. Throughout the year i've seen videos and been tempted to go back, but was unsure. This "xpac" looks pretty good, the sheer fact they are starting to comeout with new jobs and YOU CAN JUMP................. Definetly will be picking this up again when i get back from my deployment.

Here's the problem, and we all know it. ARR comes out... people flood the game on the second the servers go publically live in their respective regions. The servers can't handle the initial load and *gasp* people have to wait to play. Then comes the flaming and hate filled mess that accompanies every game that isn't perfect on release to handle hundreds of thousands or even millions of simultaneous logins.

Due to the reputation made by the first attempt, I think ARR will have a rocky start at best until people see the value it really has. This, and Elder Scrolls Online, are the two online games I really hopeful for. I'm not sure if I'll pre-order, but i'll be watching some livestreams on release, since that's just as good as playing it yourself in a lot of ways. Almost everyone has the same initial experience with these games on a new character, so a livestream is a great way to get a feel for it. Now, if we can just get a solid release date biggrin.gif

to all the newcomers to FFXI ... its easier to lvl up now . it consist of getting miniquest "pages" and just do the challenge and done , u get exp from the mobs AND exp from the challenge , i think up to 1k exp per challenge

do an alliance , kill the mobs asap , reward , repeat (ooh there is an update when u dont have to go to the NPC anymore , it just renew the quest) = super speed lvl up (this works at low lvls , i dont remember in abysea they implemented that , u still have to go back to the NPC and renew)

the downside? .... u gotta skill up PT LOL welcome to hell

the thing that SE i say was dumb ... was the move from FFXI to a new MMO development , those Projet: videos where a "remaster" of FFXI but some honcho at SE said

"...wait a minute , this is getting expensive , why not make a new MMO..."

thats why we got the same race and that "project" trailer , u can vizualise a Jeuno zone in it ...

another thing ... if the PSvita is sooo powerfull , why not make FFXI or better yet FFXIV ARR portable ... if they do that .....



THE WORLD WILL END!

that was one beast trailer, very eye-catching.

 

 

though i disliked almost every FF after X~X2... I do appreciate their art.
