    On that note, can someone please explain Ginger Prime's criticisms? I watched his "quitting ffxiv" video, but everything he says seems vague and generic
    >ffxiv refuses to take risks
    >ffxiv just caters to angry wow players
    >ffxiv refuses to admit it has flaws
    What, SPECIFICALLY, is his problem with the game?

      I haven't watched that video and I haven't played WoW, but I can kind of see the first point. XIV doesn't let players make "the wrong choice" with their builds/loadouts/etc. because there are no choices to them at all.

        No MMO has actual build choices, there is always an objectively best setup for every class/spec and deviating from that just cripples you for no reason and gets you excluded from most groups.
        XIV just did away with the pretense of choice, which is a good thing given how fucking retarded the average MMO player is.
        I certainly am not mad that XIV gor rid of Provoke being an optional skill for tanks, for example. Having retards in my party who didn't have it didn't enhance my experience in any way.

            I agree that it's a bad mindset to apply to singleplayer games, or casual co-op games like Monster Hunter, but the MMO market has proven time and time again that nobody wants to have their time wasted by a retard who thinks he's being cute by running a dogshit build.
            You can cry and moan about that all you want, but that's the reality of MMOs and it will never change.

              The thing here is that your complaints aren't even about unviable builds. You want there to be no choices at all. You don't just reject people who are running some insane bullshit like BLM/WAR in FFXI trying to do a staff-only build or something. You're the type of cancerous moron that bans MCH from your PF because of a 2% difference in output.

                He seems to want there to be no *illusion* of choice. Which is a definite thing for MMOs, and especially in old ones; even singleplayer games aren't free of objectively crap build choices that are there purely to give you the illusion of a choice. Diablo, Ragnarok, Wizardry, pretty much any RPG you could think of from the 80s up to 2010s, you've got plenty of wiggle room to make objectively bad choices that the game uses to pad its choice count. Games with customization features like Killing Floor 2 where you can choose how a perk upgrades, has a lot of shit choices.

                The point is playerbases exclude people that are running sub-par builds because the YouTube told them to.

      All of those complaints seem really random when you compare them to the actual game.

      How did EW refuse to take risks when the entire final segment took control away from the player and played out like nothing you’d ever expect in an MMO?

      How are they catering to angry WoW fans at all? The design goals haven’t shifted since WoW began imploding.

      FF14 has flaws, but unlike most online games, people that play FF14 largely like it.

        This is a really strong point.
        FF can not both cater to angry wow players, and not have changed it's formula since before there were angry wow players.
        Heavensward came out around the same time as Legion, which was beloved by wow players.
        ARR came out around Mists of Pandaria, which was also beloved by those who didn't immediately leave because of pandas.

      don't know who this eceleb is and I'm not watching a video but I can take a stab:
      >ffxiv refuses to take risks
      I don't see this as a major flaw but none of your choices matter beyond glam and superficial means
      essentially, the classes all play samey, there's no builds (they even took away elemental materia from pve and status materia from pvp AND took away cross-class skills to cut out the idea of "builds"), your choice of starting zone only effects the very beginning of the story and maybe a few dialogues in ARR, your choice of race and class only effect a few dialogues, there's no unique story for every person playing the game, your GC choice only superficially matters.
      That's one way to interpret that
      The other is the predictability of expacs and patch updates. There are more risks taken here and how we got Deep Dungeons/Bozja/V+C/Eureka, etc but I think after Diadem and the original Steps of Faith and how the playerbase approaches and reacts to these things they are rightfully afraid to take super huge risks.
      To further that, the MSQ plays it safe as shit. I get that hiring and training new VAs for EVERY language is a pain and that this is a YA targeted plot (an FF one at that), but there's no tension when damn near none of the heroes die. I think even FF2 (actual 2, not 4 with all it's fakeouts) had a higher bodycount than XIV and that's comparing a 15 hour plot to a 400 hour one...
      Even just mixing up the cast a bit for quests instead of the same scions every time would be a nice change of pace. We got a little bit of it in the First with Ryne and Gaia, but I'd like that to happen way more often.
      The other thing is the MSQ is now painfully linear. I wish there were branching offshoots. Like once you hit level 90 you should have access to every expac that comes from here on out. 7.0, 8.0, 9.0 and on should solely require you to have finished Endwalker's plot and be self-contained stories.

        FFXIV was there before WoW players got angry though to my knowledge
        >ffxiv refuses to admit it has flaws
        essentially, because of the stagnation and predictability of the above I can see how one can come to this conclusion; if the devs thought the game was broken or boring in some way they'd make crazy changes. So in essence to his eyes if they aren't changing these things they aren't admitting they have flaws. Which afaic if it's not broke DON'T fix it. The game is fine, the formula is fine. Too many games die because they do dumb shit by changing too much around.

        If you go back to ARR, dungeons did have a lot more variety. There were actually mini tasks you had to do, and they weren't all just cookie cutter. But the problem is, players didn't like that. Players want formulaic dungeons that they can clear in 15 minutes. That's why they branch out more in the optional content.

          The reason for this is because you could acquire gear with currency, and said gear was the stepping stone for raids. It's a problem that's persisted since the beginning of the game because people want their currencies. If dungeons were instead a means to and end in terms of gearing up, then...actually the problem would be the same still.
          There's no winning.

          Because dungeon spam is the most reliable and common way to level outside of the MSQ. If they made Fates/battle leves worth doing and actually gave side-quests worthwhile EXP then people wouldn't mind dungeons with gimmicks or tasks. As it stands leves, fates and side quests are just minor things you do while waiting in dungeon queue

      >ffxiv refuses to take risks
      Fair, but a problem in MMOs overall.You could argue it's a problem with gaming overall.
      >ffxiv just caters to angry wow players
      It's true the DNA of ARR is rooted in ripping off WoW and that fact continues to influence the game, but that's very different than deliberately trying to cater to former WoW players. They obviously just saw WoW had a successful formula and based themselves off that.
      >ffxiv refuses to admit it has flaws
      How does a game admit its flaws? If he means that at substantial part of the playerbase are gaslighters then yes, that's true. If he means the devs don't acknowledge failings, that's false. If he means they don't acknowledge failings properly or put effort into correcting them, that's... more complicated.

      So yeah I agree these points aren't nearly specific enough

Caring what non-talents like this think isn't addressing any issue or flaw the game currently has that you can plainly see yourself.

      Absolutely shitass playerbase that's absolutely obnoxious.
      Housing system is absolute dogshit and the worst implementation that exists in the genre.
      The story is "okay" at best, and took four shitty expansions before it started to become remotely interesting. Everything up to ShB was boring as fuck, and I gave zero shits about the Scions or any of the characters.

      Good start. I think its races are "fine" for the most part, but they lack abstraction to the point that they're very boring. WoW's races are infinitely better because there's abstraction to proportions, the options are more diverse and just simply more aesthetically interesting to look at. The races in XIV are just humans of different sizes but with horns, kitty ears or tails.

    SHB killed the game. SB was the last time some jobs were designed with a modicum of skill whe others were made easier for newcomers. Now they're all on the same skill basement. Same thing with the endgame fights, now bosses recenter themselves and have arena-wide hitboxes and boss arenas dont even try to mix things up. Even some dungeons could cause a wipe at the slightest mistake but now you can sleep through them all with one button regardless of job and clear it.

    If there was ever a time to quit, it would be now. EW has proven they don't care about feedback, jobs will keep being designed for people who do the MSQ only.

      You should probably quit then, that’s what most of the game is. It’s made for people who have overactive imaginations and can fill in the blanks to sort of create a world inside your head.

It isn’t made for people who watch LOTR on 1.5x speed because they thought the Shire parts were boring.

    They absolutely butchered SMN in EW. Seriously until you get to 80 all of your single target spells look, sound and feel the same. You have emerald, ruby, and topaz ruin and they all are supposed to be different elements but they have the exact same animation and sound effect. Same with your elementally aspected aoe spell. Not until 80 do you actually have elemental spells. Until then you're just casting Ruin III under different names, except when you have Bahamut trance up. It's an atrocity of game design.

    Also the lobotomized Carbuncle. What the fuck does it even exist anymore for? Why can't it at least still attack? It just stands there looking into the distance, until turn it into an elemental for 5 seconds. Like why the fuck did they remove it's auto attack? It's like they don't consider fucking job identity at all when they dumb jobs down like this. Same with the removal of AST sects, which are literally part of the lore of the job, the fucking job quests teach you about the seperate sects. Now it doesn't even make sense.

      summoner previously would literally just cast ruin 3 and sometimes 4 between egi assaults (same thing as the new lego summons but with worse animations) and refreshing dots once every minute with tri disaster (same thing as energy drain -> fester). it was only with bahamut/phoenix phases that endwalker has improved on that you actually broke up the ruin 3 spamming, and at least now the different lego ruin 3s have slightly different cast times/potencies to mix it up

      >Also the lobotomized Carbuncle. What the fuck does it even exist anymore for? Why can't it at least still attack?
      this I do miss but your pet running around trying to get in extremely shitty auto attacks that are barely better then you slapping them with the book is a big cause for summon moves that are actually good ghosting so if thats how they gotta fix this bullshit I'll live with it

      > It's like they don't consider fucking job identity at all when they dumb jobs down like this.
      the changes were because people were tired of summoner being dot and shitty egi mage that was a ripoff of the warcraft warlock class and wanted something more like summoners in single player FF games where you have different summons coming out constantly to do big move and inbetween you're some kind of mix between attack and healing magic

      I do miss banes animation but I'd rather this over the shadowbringers summoner that didn't actually have any real control over your pet like previous expansions and was still an instant cast ruin 3 spamfest but with shitty feeling moves and pet ghosting fucking you in the ass

      I agree that we need to get actual elemental looks for spells earlier, but other than that I'm really enjoying the revamp. I will, however, echo many others and demand that we get more summons. At least these three, to close up the classic element loop and to have a second trio of summons to rotate through, like

      Bahamut -> Ifrit -> Titan -> Garuda -> Phoenix -> Ramuh ->Leviathan -> Shiva -> Bahamut

      And also give us one Mega-Summon that has big damage but a long cooldown. Alexander would be perfect for Holy representation.

A graphical update to bring it up to the PS4 parity it has access to now is a pretty good deal on top of all that.

Its not that fucking hard. Create reasons for each healer to be in a group.

      You can only have 2 of the 4 healers in a group for most high end content. With how people min-max these days, the playerbase will find the most optimal two and only allow those two in raid content. Which then means 2/4 Jobs a worthless.

    MMOs have this problem where they won't admit that High-tier (Savage) raiding is the core of the game essentially.

    Dungeons are about getting tomes, off-patch side content getting materia. They all weave into raiding.

      Can that really be put forth as a criticism? It's a Final Fantasy game, it being a Visual Novel should be expected before anyone starts playing. It would be like me putting forth the criticism that the only reason Team Fortress 2 is a bad game is because its an FPS and not a 4X game.

    The gameplay feels stilted and lacks fluidity compared to WoW
    Animation locks are annoying
    There's far too long between raid boss releases
    Raid encounters are far too static to be engaging in the long run
    The smaller raid sizes, while more intimate and easier to coordinate, result in limitations to what raid encounters can provide in terms of mechanics compared to larger raid sizes
    If I could have Final Fantasy's presentation, casual content, trials/primals but with WoW's raid and dungeon content and gameplay, it would be perfect.

          Nope.

          All I expect is a online persistent world, where I do content alone or with other players. It should also get regular updates 3-5 times a year, plus an expansion every 1-3 years. Which races are available are nothing but subjective preference. For example I prefer just human options. Why? because I despise furries, and I'd rather play my games without them polluting the online community.

              But playing games with fewer furry race options means the game will have a lower percentage of them. It's one of the main reasons I haven't played WoW since Cataclysm.

            Playable creatures other than humans in MMOs will always lure out the degenerates that will use it for their purposes, so there's no way they will get rid of that issue. That said, it's not just other fantasy races, just like regular human like ones as well. Look at FFXIV's community for example, or just any MMO at this point.

            I do agree with the other expectations, but I still wish there were different playable fantasy races in FFXIV though.

    People don't understand the main flaws of MMOs and XIV anyway.

    Start with Dungeons for example.
    Dungeons are always mediocre, and they're 25% of the game. The fact that they're now hallways with mobs to switch between AoE and Single target rotations makes it worse.

    People can't even bring up the idea that maybe dungeons aren't good because "They're part of the roulette, just do them and get the loot xD".

                The problem isn't dungeons per se, it's that they don't intertwine with the core mechanics usually. They're time fillers with random encounters and bloated navigation.

                The only game that does dungeons well is Zelda because the combat and puzzles inside that dungeon all mesh together.

                For XIV, there are no core gameplay mechanics that any of the dungeons capitalise on aside from visual set pieces. Some of the early dungeons had them, but they're gone now.

                WAS a core aspect of the genre. It hasn't been for over two decades. There are niche games like Etrian Odyssey or Grimrock that come once every few years. But the RPG players today want a linear experience hidden in a 'open world', That gives them the illusion they have more choice than they actually do. Where they can collect stuff to acquire equipment or abilities in a 'gameplay loop'.

      For an MMO so heavily about the story the story itself is a very mixed bag. Post-ARR is the biggest hurdle and I almost quit the game over it, but HS was a nice reward. From there it was a mixed bag with a largely disappointing ending. Can only hope they bounce back successfully though I worry that 7.0 is gonna be yet another Twins/G'raha Tia Show featuring Krile.

      They started leaving most of the attractive female characters behind after SB. Funny coincidence that this is when the game started to become littered with fujobait.

    The UI could use some changes.
    Let's say you want to buy an item that you know is sold at a vendor. You look it up online and their website lists all the vendors that sell it. You go to a vendor and it has 6 different shop menus, each shop having a few dozen items. You might have to open each separate shop to look for the item, and none of the shops list items alphabetically (it seems they're sorted by Japanese name or by item ID).

    fix the netcode so there's no more weaving problems and pvp becomes playable
    bring customization up to speed with MMOs from a decade ago, its so stupid that viera and hrothgar are only limited because they fucking hardcoded the amount of CaC data a character is allowed to have and won't change for some reason. multiple dyes for gear too while they're at it
    BLU highlights a major issue in their decision making for content where they wanted to make sure it was accessible for everyone while being customizable but actually getting through content with it needs you to be actually competent, while also having BLU be so rancidly overpowered in overworld stuff that back in the yokai watch event, it was basically a necessity early on if you wanted any contribution in FATES, but nerfing it for later will make it pointless to bring

      Will never happen. They would have to remake their whole engine. Even their backend anti-cheat to prevent duping even relies on the 1.5 second server tick. At that point just spend the time, money and manpower to make a new game. It's not worth investing in a 10+ year old game to 'fix' weaving, or make PvP playable for some handful of try-hards.

      Not unless something happens that means she can't stay in the First anymore. Time distortion between shards means staying in others for extended periods of time is very dangerous, and there's no reason why she'd accept giving up her whole life and home to go kick around the Source. Visits might happen during those periods of relative equivalence, or when the shard that's being visited is the one moving faster, but they'd still have to be sporadic and carefully planned, and with the pace at which changes happen that got established between HW and SB it would still probably be only one visit before she has to leave for good.

      But doing said visit and then returning to find out she was unluky enough that the timeskip did happen during the brief time she was out and now most people she knows are dead or old would probably be reason enough for her to decide to just stick with the Scions for good.

      I dunno. There's definitely a routine for XIV. It's been in operation for almost a decade and it's flying high with little competition. On the other hand, FF16 is not yet out the gates and it's in that crucial phase when every second of development time counts.

      I think Yoshida knows he can let FFXIV coast for a bit while he focuses his attention on FF16. He won't be too far away from XIV in case there's trouble, but it is something he and CBU3 probably have down to a science. But FF16 needs to be perfect. It can't be broken or unfinished at launch. It needs to be as close to perfect as they can get it before it goes out into the hands of fans. And FF16 may be as important to the franchise or more than the relaunch of XIV.

      Riding on the back of FF16 is the future of not just Final Fantasy, but of Square Enix. Having spent almost 8 years between when the project started and when it'll launch, I can't imagine SE has the will power or resources to take on that kind of challenge more a few times. So, for Yoshida and CBU3, FF16 is absolutely the priority until it launches next Summer. That's why patch cycles have increased and why fanfests are more spaced out this time. It's why we're not seeing 7.0 until April 2024 or later. It's critical that FF16 be a success or the franchise may find itself becoming increasingly niche and unable to afford the costs of development of these grand and visually impressive worlds that has been a hallmark of FF games for a very long time now.

        XVI succeeding just seems impossible what with the PS5 exclusivity meme

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          It just depends how good or bad it is. If it's the greatest video game ever, then everyone that owns a PS5 will grab it and everyone that doesn't have a PS5 will get one just to play it. WILL it be that good? Seems unlikely. But it is absolutely possible for exclusive games to sell very well. They just have to really excite people.

    For as many things heavensward did right, it did equally as many things wrong.
    People forget just how much of a slog so many systems were in HW, especially if you were a crafter.
    Everything was just designed to waste so much of your time.
    Have fun collecting that shit from the unspoiled node in the starting HW map that has a chance of just spawning in a place you can't get to without flaying unlocked (which you can't do until you're nearly finished with the MSQ), because you need that shit to make holy water needed for every piece of cloth which is needed for like five levels of gear crafting, all of which require multiple pieces of.

    That's if you even had high enough stats to gather it when you get there because, again, it's an unspoiled node.

    I can't even get to level cap because FFXIV has some of the worst leveling content in any MMO ever. The quest design? Absolute garbage. You'd think that after several expansions they'd have figured out something else other than:

    1. Talk to NPC, Watch Cutscene, Go talk to another NPC in another zone.
    2. Kill 3 enemies or go to 3 areas to get 3 items.

                And besides, if we do take the Rising video as something that did canonically happen, we might as well declare Y'shtola the "official" winner already.

          I don't give a shit. First of all that's also pretty lame and would still be a severe lack of any real buildup as compared to Zodiark. Second, no, birb was for all intents the proxy of any sorts of negativity. 'She', at the behest of her autistic maker, is still for all intents the main antagonist and a very very shitty one.

            Meteion is not the antagonist. She's the medium for the actual antagonist. The Endsinger is not Meteion, the Endsinger is the collection of despair ghosts wearing Meteion's skin.

              No, the Endsinger is all the birbs but one doing a fusion dance while also having taken in various angry souls of lost dead races. Even with the latter it's still because of the Meteions that there is any sort of threat there. And it's because of their autistic response to the "WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE" and their equally-autistic creator that they became a threat. Also as said, muh collection fo despair ghosts is still really shitty.

              I'm pissed that they aren't able to bring out Midgardsormr, I'd love to see his perspective in this since he's the only dragon alive who actually lived on the Dragonstar. They need to just make the Omega quests mandatory already, fuck the few idiots that can't be bothered to do them.
              Vidofnir is cool too, though. I just want more dragon stuff.

              Honestly I feel like Omega was wasted on a B-plot. This could have been great material for a much bigger threat beyond Zodiark.

                No, the Endsinger is the hivemind collective which has been infected by the despair of dead races. Meteion is nothing more than its shell.

                Wrong. They became a threat because Meteion soaks up dynamis as fuel. So when she entered despair-soaked dynamis, it infected her. It isn't a case of an autistic AI coming to an autistic conclusion based on faulty data. It's a case of the Meteion network being hijacked by ghosts who are angry and lashing out.

                No, Emet says the query he loaded into her is what's faulty. The query she was meant to give to other planets. Because it triggered shit like the Nibirun realizing the answer is "nothing" and then she soaks up that realization.

                If Meteion is just a shell then how did you get through to the Meteion you'd met? It's more like, and I don't believe we know for sure, the other Meteions were much less emotionally developed than that Meteion despite their being to some degree a hivemind. That doesn't make them empty shells though.

                >Wrong. They became a threat because Meteion soaks up dynamis as fuel
                I mean what set them off to their path of killing everyone. At base it was their being sent off with the meaning of life question. Also it's less that the "Meteion network" was hijacked by ghosts and more that they soaked up all the despair and thus the ghosts around them, incorporating them.

                But for the sake of your autism let's say you are right and Meteion did nothing wrong, and the villain is a collection of angry ghosts. Ok. Those angry ghosts made for a really shitty, really unsatisfying final boss. And it doesn't stop Meteion from being a shit 'character' either.

        I honestly would have preferred Zodiark considering how much he was built up over the entire game just to get a random NPC we meet in one expansion being the big bad because some moron can't figure out existential dread and cope like everyone else.

          I get why it's not Zodiark, that's fine. The problem is there's no physical antagonist of Endwalker. The antagonist is nihilism.

          But that's stupid. The battle should be you vs Zodairk & Hyaedalyn and the driving question should be: "Is there hope in delaying the inevitable?"
          That question drives the point of splitting the worlds into shards.

          If anything sitting in the planet's core is going to rear its head it'll be from the crafters' line about a Ouroboros in the lifestream that had to be magically shackled or else its eating its own tail would have destroyed the planet.

          Personally I think saying it's Lavos has about as much relevance to what came later as Emet-Selch and Elidibus's repeated references to the Final Days being the result of Amaurotine sins.

            We say Lavos because it's a recognizable concept.
            I think they're going to use that Ouroboros story element post-7.0 but that it actually was meant for endwalker.
            It's clear when you're in Amaurotine that the noise they're talking about is coming from the planet, that's how they intended to write it.

          it's not even that, they're often just a background pairing for wol/anyone else. a lot of fanfic authors do this thing where they'll use every tag applicable to their fic, even if it's barely in the fic. if you wanted urianger/thancred stuff you're better of looking for fan art.

      I just hope they give us a proper waifu sort, though if she's introduced in 7.0 then she'd probably never be seen again after we are done with that questline.

    Speaking of your shipshit. Do you actually think they will ever have the balls to take someone away from WoL's bowl and make an official pairing, thus inevitably ruining the popularity of said characters? Even with Thancred and Minf they went for "it's not like that" route.

            Reading comprehension is hard isn't it, harder dungeons are fine (the trash mobs are a plus) the boss however was a pain in the ass. Tho again, i don't care for criterion

            Because EX/Savage are the only places where you are required to play the game.
