    And clearly it worked because we have a thread about it.

    I am shocked and dismayed.

    And somewhat distrustful of Miros because he's like that. D:

    Re: There are currently 123 users online. 1 members and 122 guests

    FFXIV hasnt been "That" bad for awhile now though. Every patch has added more and more to make it worth while. they have truly turned this game around and with 2.0 coming, its only destined to get better! I'm damn surprised more people haven't come back to give it a go, especially with the legacy program and 2.0 coming. I keep reading how bad it sucks, but never read how anyone actually came back to try the new content...because those who have are still playing lol!
    Sucks this place did die though because of the server confusion, i joined Istory and am still on the server we merged into.

    Re: There are currently 123 users online. 1 members and 122 guests

    Eh, I cashed out $25 for 3 months a few months or so ago just to get Lagacy in the event I actually like 2.0. Still, I go out to do something and log off 20-30 minutes later, it's just so bad not only in a FF sense but in an online game sense. There are just so many other, better games to be in to right now than this. I'll agree, there have been a lot of changes in attempt to make the game better, but the base game is just so bad and that's something you can't go fixing pre 2.0.

    The only reason I've set myself up for 2.0 is because Square Enix is actually doing things this time, not some Chinese dev house that SE subbed it out to while they pointed a few fingers and made a few phone calls. Hopefully they can do the impossible, after all XI was the best online game I had and have ever played, and they know how awful XIV is, so I'm willing to take that chance on them, once anyways.

    Re: There are currently 123 users online. 1 members and 122 guests

    Legacy system? Hmm.. You know I know another MMO that has something called a Legacy system.. How original Square.

    Yet to be honest, if they were to add Dark Knight back into the game like they added a lot of the other FFXI classes, I probably would be sold in coming back. I still can't believe they didn't add battle scythes (not the puny harvesting kind) and great swords. What were they thinking? I've never been a fan of axes, great axe or normal. Give me Dark Knight and I'll play XIV again. Hell, give me great swords and I might even reconsider. Without those though I am just not interested because I can't play what/how I would like to in this type of FF mmo, not after XI anyway.
    Dark Knight. Forever.

    I still wish they'd open up FFXI free of monthly fees :\ I'm sure they could work out something to make ends meet.

    I figured the site died cause the admins mostly disappeared and the site had problems where it was down for awhile at points and that kinda made people who were in a habit of checking it out stop. Just my guess.

    It's a variety of factors. Attempting to broaden the scope of the site was probably ill-advised; things likely would have functioned better if there had in fact been an "official" server. Down time, Reeve's perpetual absences, and other random mishaps added their own burden.

    That's not going to happen anytime soon. There are still a lot of people playing the game and as such paying the fee. And really, the only way they could insert a cash shop model would be through a pay-to-win schema, then what's the point of the game even. Pre-Abyssea I could think of a few things they could have done, but Abyssea made this game so easy I really don't see what cash shop options they'd have left. Not to mention, going free-to-play, would completely devalue the game (through typical free-to-play models) for a lot of folks, myself included.

    Exactly! And a lot of them are free.

    I've been wanting the same thing. I'm 90% sure they could make micro-transactions work out. Cosmetic stuff and stuff that you can already get in game but just takes a lot of time to get.

    Well I don't know how much has changed since ToAU. It's been awhile since I played (like 2007?) So ya... but I could see them making mounts or cosmetic stuff sellable or maybe exp boosts or something. I'm sure they could do SOMETHING. It'd be cool at least to have them do what EQ did :P

    It's because the game is so different from those days that I can't see a cash-shop model working. That's just me though, I very may well be overlooking some things other people may catch. Funny you bring up XP boosts though, I was going to use them as an example in how they wouldn't work. You see, with Abyssea in play now, once you hit level 30 you can simply go leech to 99 in no time at all. Granted not everyone knows people to get in on this, but a good majority of people do by now I'd imagine. I thought though, it'd help get to 30, but then I remembered the book changes and how it only ever took me a good 9-10 hours to get to 30 solo. I'm sure it'd make them a little money, but not nearly what they're making now on sub fees. They could put in a cosmetic shop, but then again, they could also do that as well as keep running the sub fee and people would still pay-to-play as well as buy mounts, cosmetic items, etc. There is just no way for either side to truly win in a free-to-play model with this game best I can imagine.
