Does the game have FFXI's horrible gameplay?

If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

Yeah, hate to echo all the people in this thread, but I'd only play this if it were F2P. I don't think I'd ever subscribe to an mmo again - not that there was anything wrong with WoW, they delivered a decent service for the price I paid, but I always felt kinda tied-in and it was one of the reasons I had difficulty quitting.

That reminds me, perhaps I should give DCUO a try.

Hope this relaunches well anwyay. Though, the stigma attached to the XIV name is gonna be quite high, I wonder how many people are actually gonna give it a try without a name change.

Well I am gonna buy it the physical thing or even get a limited edition cause FF games really excel at aesthetics, art and design,  so that holds some value for me

but if Im gonna have to pay after a month or two for every month or two i will think about it twice.


Many mmo games are going for free now but i dont know about square

I'm tentatively excited for this. Hope they massively improve the gameplay.
Remember though that FFXIV also had an awesome CG trailer

I would expect a Gameplay trailer in about 2 weeks at Gamescom.

Don't forget the beta will be free, and then you get a 30 day free trial on official release!

I hope it will end up being worth the 5 bucks I spent on the game.


Here's a couple pics of our Linkshell with our relics. My character is the one on the far left.

All MMORPGs should have a free to play tier that offers a lot to play. Monthly subs should get you all the bells and whistles, access to new content F2P players cannot get. Expansions obviously a one time fee to get access to for everyone.

Many years ago I would never have payed for a MMORPG, but then Anarchy Online went free to play as a optional tier, the first 'major' western MMORPG to do it. Holy crap that offered a lot to free players, but like any MMO you want more, and you want the uber options, so I upgraded to a pay to play tier and got access to expansion packs, ended up playing that game for years as a pay subscriber.

I would never have given it a chance if not for free-to-play tier, and I still will not for a MMO without one.


The second trailer for FFXIV: A Realm Reborn was released today. It has a new voice over, and some of the same similar scenes!

I didn't know it was directed by Michael Bay.

Hey man nice job.
