DianeMcGowan I think you have your Final Fantasy games confused…. this is XI not XIV, but either way they both encourage and incorporate grouping into the storylines…. I have no issue with that. Matter fact it was one thing about XI I miss very much! I haven’t had as much fun grouping up with soooo many players since then!

God i wish they would just tie this and XIV into the same sub already.

Great! I’ve been wanting to play again but money has been REALLY tight (yes, tight enough that I can’t spare $15). I can at least get back in during this free period and hope that I can afford a sub after.

Forced grouping to get to some zones – forced grouping to be able to fly..if I had known this at all I would never have bought it. I’ll stick to MMO’s that don’t do this crap.  Thanks, it was a lovely world and I still have the hots for the Admiral, but no thank you

It’s also worth noting that the game is on sale for 15 big ones on the SE store right now.

god I wish this game would go B2P (even F2P if it really had to) … the in game population / activity would skyrocket just from people saying “why the hell not” and picking it up as a casual side game.

I am sure that Blizzard is more than capable of adding significant content in a monthly basis … hell, they could probably deliver full expansions every 3 months.

but marketing doesn’t give a rats ass about the health of individual titles, they just care about pushing products, & regular content updates for WoW would pull attention off of other titles and hedge in on release windows they have blocked out for other games.

The real situation for FFXI is that marketing decided that the game was not worth actively promoting anymore along side FFXIV, so they dropped their “active” involvement in constricting content delivery to specific launch windows and mandating specific promotional additions … but FFXI is so dated now that developing new content is effortless compared to what it used to take / currently takes to develop for AAA titles, so even though the game technically has a “maintenance” grade staff; they can pump out significant content updates at a regular pace.

…. granted, the game is probably never going to see another new zone added in, but it really doesn’t take any effort at all to set up a side quest that requires no VO & drop in a reskinned item with upgraded stats.

BalsBigBrother Not an excuse per-say but they did offer an option to move to pc and on pc you can play exactly the same way you did on console using a controller. Not suggesting you return but if the one thing standing in your way is the inability to play on a console the experience is pretty much still there.
