    can someone explain why the 'just play other games' argument gets touted so often in response to criticism of this game. you don't see this kind of deflection with criticism of any other video game on the market.

      it's from a specific criticism of the game, not just any criticism. That being "I should have 40 hours of content every patch" which is unrealistic. If that is you that means at some point you've been "caught up" on content and need to take a break and play other games and let more content accumulate.

        well no. i don't expect 40 hours of content every patch. however, i expect more than afternoon's worth of stuff. if i tallied up together all significant content in this patch (msq + alliance raid + dungeon + trial + ex trial + tataru's grand adventure) i'd get a total of 6 or 7 hours. because that's how long doing those things took me. i have different expectations of money-time proposition for a subscription-based game compared to a one-time payment game. xiv doesn't necessarily have to give me more story content or something, but it does need to provide me with content that is substantially replayable in a way that alliance raids and ex trials are not. i think this is a reasonable request of an mmo.

        i'm eagerly awaiting fire emblem engage next week. i expect it will take me around 25 hours to complete. suppose fire emblem engage takes me 12 hours to finish and has half of the total chapters that games in the series usually have. i would be rightfully bothered by that situation. the money-time assumption was betrayed. the same would be true for a movie that cost 15 bucks but lasted 45 minutes rather than the standard hour and 30.

        xiv as a subscription based title asks me for 13 dollars a month of sub. if i'm a smart shopper, i only spend 13 dollars to experience this patch's content, and with that kind of framing in mind, an afternoon's worth of stuff is suddenly reasonable. HOWEVER. xiv is a game that would prefer i pay monthly. square enix would objectively like it if i had reason to keep being subbed even when they offer nothing new. the complaint had is that xiv, perhaps more than other mmos, is exceptionally poor at giving you a reason to stay subbed. this complaint, that the game does not provide me enough of substance to do, does not come from a place of hate of the game - if i hated the game i would be glad it's over so fast. rather, i like the game. and i want more to eat. it's not an unreasonable complaint at all.

            think about it - in what scenario does the director of a game tell anyone not to play it? a scenario where he knows there's not enough shit to do for most players. you would never see a director of a game that had ample content say this. ever. square enix's head honchos certainly don't want you to not be subbed. i agree that yoshi p said this, but it's a symptom of a problem rather than anything else.

              The problem is that the only realistic way to engage players in a consistent and long term fashion is to offer grind and lots of it. People don't want grind. The people that want grind wouldn't be satisfied either way. Besides, telling people to not play all the time hasn't hurt the game's bottom line. Hard to argue with those results.

              roulettes, maybe the weekly clear and ERP/modding. thats it. with modding being 90% of the playerbase. why do you think people that want to actually play the game go to JP servers?

              I'm collecting all of the Relics from every expac and doing treasure maps. I've gotten most of the achievements from PvP, but unfortunately people don't play RW, so I can't get my 1000 wins there. That has killed most of the time I've spent playing.
              Outside of combat related stuff, I'm trying to get all the Triple Triad cards and do anything story related (have almost all the Custom Deliveries done, working on the Tribe Quests which I've put off for like forever)

          If you're only going to engage with the endgame content once, the problem is you and perhaps MMOs aren't the genre for you. It's like someone saying "Well, it only took me four hours to play on every map in the latest CoD. Guess I'm out of content." The genre is about repetition and mastery, they just use trinkets as motivation for the smoothbrains who need rewards for doing anything.

            The problem with this, however, is that XIV offers literally no incentive to do this.
            If you're someone who does savage raids what reason do you have to ever do the 24-man more than once?
            In previous expansions stuff like relics and wondrous tails would force you to diversify and keep this kind of old content alive, but ever since they introduced exploratory zones or whatever this has kinda died out.

      I don't want this MMO to be a chore simulator/treadmill like some other MMOs. The grinds here are all optional and that's a good thing, and the result is that you eventually run out of content and go play something else for a while.

        That'd be a good argument if the content they put out every 4 months would keep you engaged for 2-3 weeks at least. But 6.3 died in 2-3 hours, while asking for a monthly sub
        So you can see how this looks for someone that subs for the patch only to be told go play something else 4 hours in, after they paid their sub

          Yea, I'd assume they wouldn't sub again and go play something worth their time. Fortnite looks amazing these days and its F2P. Same with Genshin. People would be happier if they played games they enjoyed rather than the opposite.

        that design is fine and i would prefer ffxiv not to be a chore simulator (that it isn't is part of its appeal), but it's still over too quickly. a middle ground must be possible without alienating too many people. you can have your 4 hour main course, just also have some additional stuff that takes a few more days for people who want to spend more time. it's really not too much to ask.

          to be clear, some of this problem would be alleviated if the ultimate was out right now. but it isn't. so we wait. that's what ffxiv is - a lot of waiting for something that doesn't last too long unless it's hardcore content.

                The problem lies in if it's something you have to enable or run on you will find only people with a vested interest enable this ability to be scanned or add themselves to an external website like this. Once you add on the majority of the playerbase who are casual with no interest in any form of raiding or don't go further than early savage/Ex you will find the number drops considerably.

                UWU is an easy ultimate but you are fucking delusional if you think it has a 16% clear rate when probably not even 10% of people do anything form of ultimate content at all

Because if you enjoy the game itself, there's plenty of stuff to do, even if you have a niche you like to stay in. If you just like doing new stuff, and decide to run the new raid once, do the dungeon once, do the trial + extreme once, do one match on the new pvp map, then an MMO isn't really the game you should be playing.

      While I would enjoy more content especially for endwalker I also prefer my online games not to be a second job. I want to be able to take breaks instead of turning into a braindead wow player that can only play one game.

      This doesn't excuse the lack of content in endwalker though. Bozja provided some fun and grind and the replacement was a dull solo island and the new dungeon mode was over far too fast.

      I quit the game due to the gear treadmill being really obvious and linear. I am fine with running low on stuff to do, it happens. If all the game is outside of raiding with people who probably hate you is weekly tome cap, it gets really boring and repetitive, but I think it's a problem with MMO design in general, WoW supposedly has the same issues with weekly currency/daily chores. I think MMOs are a dying genre, and I've moved on to stuff like MonHun. I had a lot of fun with FFXIV, but I can't stand its encounter design and progression anymore.

      People like to point to the interview where Yoshi says it's ok to take a break because there's other games etc etc and use that as an argument for the piss poor value per dollar the game provides per update despite commanding a box price + sub fee + cash shop.

      This mentality is ruining the game for people that originally started playing because they wanted a proper MMO and not a single player + lobby simulator, and their philosophy does not reflect the actual reality of the game. ilevel treadmills, housing, fomo pvp, seasonal events, all are attempts at keeping people anchored to the sub fee in one way or another, instead of creating a genuine desire to stay subbed by providing a compelling world to explore with long lasting content where you have dynamic interactions with other players, enemies, and the world itself. If they were true to their word about not wanting to force people to log in every day they would drop all treadmill systems and subfee. For example, I could log in to GW2 right now for the first time in over a year and still have BiS gear, even though I haven't even bought the latest expansion. On top of this, XIV has recently begun retroactively destroying old content, making it even easier than it already was, just to accomodate NPC companions - a gameplay element that would make more sense in a completely offline, one time box price game.

        How does gearing work in GW2? Your latest expac doesn't give gears with better stats?

        • 2 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          At max character level ( which also doesn't increase ) there are 3 relevant gear tiers: exotic, ascended, and legendary

          Exotics are basically entry level gear, you use them while you are working on collecting Ascended, full sets can be easily crafted or bought.

          Ascended gear, stat wise, is only a 5% increase over Exotic, but is much more difficult to collect since you can't buy it directly on the market board. you have to do max level crafting, get lucky with chests or boss drops, and do certain achievements

          Legendary has the same exact stat weights as Ascended, but the types of stats can be modified on the fly, so you don't need to carry multiple sets for different builds. They also have unique aesthetic properties like modifying the visual effect of your skills or giving you a glowing aura. These are the most prestigious items that require the most time / money to obtain.

          Once you have the items you are set for life though, there is no perpetual gearing process

        >This mentality is ruining the game for people that originally started playing because they wanted a proper MMO and not a single player + lobby simulator
        Maybe you're right, but the fact is XIV devs have said themselves that they dont want to do grindy, fomo content that gives "gratification" and "value", and is fine with their current playerbase.
        In my opinion I think the game is fine for what it is, and the devs dont try to chase 2 different playerbases like a bunch of devs do which usually killed their games and losing the goodwill of the original fans. The playerbase will naturally come if the devs are focused on the direction of their game, whether it be a large number or otherwise.

    3 hours of content, a waste of 12 dollars what a fucking hack this team is. We used to get several dungeons in a patch now its just 1 and some nodding of heads in cutscenes with stale characters that are past their prime. I'm actually kind of pissed I resubbed for once. The game really feels like it is on maintenance mode. I hope they are at least using this wasted time on this game making another MMORPG

    After hearing for years about how shit SB was I'm kinda shocked, it's nowhere near as good as HW but it's not some horrible sin against the game like I heard. It's just not as personal because it doesn't spend as long building up a smaller cast of characters. I didn't even hate Lyse, she's a retarded generic action heroine but that just makes her boring instead of the miserable black hole I was told she was.

      >Savanna area with big fucking rock in the middle. Dragon kangaroos and koalas are here.
      >One vast, dry wasteland + desert with an XBOX FUCKHUEG allagan ruin towering over the horizon at one of the edges of the map so high it actually can cover the whole area in shadow at the appropiate time of day.

        not him, but lets compare to a simplified version of a 2005 raid in a different MMO

        >Event 1: boss spawns randomly from killing trash in the zone. he curses random people that need curing or they get instantly killed
        >Event 2: pull boss down a tower while rooting adds to kill them, offtank 2 other mobs while keeping them pointed away from the raid
        >Event 3: Phoenix Wright boss. Have a dialogue with 3 NPCs and find out how they betrayed each other while clearing out waves of trash and finding evidence against one or all of them.

        >Event 4: Boss chases you around the map and you need to trap him in his own traps to kill him.
        >Event 5: Cure lycanthropy by lowering boss' hp to under 10%, then healing and curing the boss until they are free
        >Event 6: Fight vampire hunter who swaps weapons mid-fight. Boss can unequip your weapons and throw destroyable objects at the raid
        >Event 7: Fight vampire boss while sneaking around the castle and collecting bane weapons to use against him
        >Event 8: Fight off 15 waves of enemies while singing songs alongside a skeleton bard
        >Event 9: Fight 8 minibosses and a vampire lord while using class-specific limited-use items to counter specific mechanics

        Not all of that is doable within the XIV infrastructure, but the game actively limits its own potential by focusing on DPS races and positional mechanics as the end all be all of the content.

    I feel the buildup towards 7.0 is not really about the Void, but about the Lifestream itself.

    Think about it. At the end of 6.0 we had those weird references to 'the Snake of the Underworld which eats its own tail'. A representation of the Lifestream.
    But then, the 3 main stories we are dealing with in the patches, are also related with the concept of the Lifestream, and the cycle of life and death.
    >The Voidsents wanting to die so they can be reborn
    >The Twelve which are obviously the Guardians of the Lifestream, being settled in a nexus of Aether
    >Pandemonium being about cheating death, and now appearing in the Underworld itself.
    It will all converge in: 'Something went wrong with the Lifestream. AT UNIVERSAL SCALE.'
    Perhaps because of what Meteion did, wrecking so many worlds and their lifestreams, which we now know are part of a bigger cosmic lifestream.

    Of course, this would be the next main plot for the future expansions. And we can start the investigation of what's going on in Meracydia.

        I think it's the perfect reincarnation cycle so long as you keep your consciousness and don't just die for good and get your aether recycled. You're effectively living infinite lifes and the adventure will never really end and it will all feel fresh and new every time.

      FFXIV has long been the go to game for WoW refugees. It's been pretty common practice to shit on Blizzard while praising FFXIV on their way out as a dig at something Blizzard did.
      >What? Ion doesn't want us flying until the end of expansions? FFXIV's new expansion let's you fly from the start! Guess I know where I'M going to be spending MY time!
      >Pfft, Tallstrider racing at the Darkmoon Faire? Hastily released the same week as Chocobo racing? Pathetic Blizz (Although to be fair this one did have the stink of desperation to it.)
      >My character doesn't mean anything in WoW's story. I'm just some murder hobo here. Yeah I'm killing 20 boars, but WHY am I killing 20 boars? I'm going to go to FFXIV where the story is about ME!
      >This community is so toxic and mean. I'm going to go to FFXIV where everyone is NICE!
      Shit like that. The average WoW player, especially those on forums, have always done this. When WoW isn't going their way they make threads saying how they're going to go to some other game to spite Blizzard when in reality they just want WoW to start doing some things like other games do. They don't actually want to leave.
      And every time you get a flood of
      >"Yes I agree!"
      and
      >"Yeah I played that game and it's just not for me. It sucks for XYZ reason"
      It doesn't even need to be FFXIV specifically. FFXIV is just a stand out because it's been going strong for so long that it's now the frequent scapegoat for this tactic, but even back in the days of BC people would bring up any number of other MMO's and potential WoW killers they were going to go to because they wanted people to pay attention to their complaints.

      its simple really, this game has been talked about on Ganker for some time, but only small threads on Ganker (we don't talk about /xivg/) that the jannies usually pruned after 5 or 6 posts
      around the time of late 8.3.5 when prepatch for Shadowlands had been released and the only real content was level squish and ability prunes people got bored. This wasn't helped by Blizz pushing back the released of SHL several times and not really offering any compensation to go with it.
      Then I guess someone told him about it and Asmongold subbed to XIV while waiting for SHL to come out. This brought a horde of new players to the game who originally only played WoW. The influx was so massive that Endwalker was and several other features had to be delayed to fix the servers.
      From there WoW fans got mad that all their ecelebs were switching over to XIV, basically just jumping on the Asmon grift train, and making videos about it. This only got worse when Shadowlands was terrible and everyone shat on it to the point where one eceleb Preach left WoW for good in the early days of Castle Nathria - the first raid released for SHL. What followed from him were more videos shitting on blizzard while saying he would never return to WoW (look how well that turned out) which sparked a few more ecelebs to ride the grift train with him.
      Asmon still continues to tease his return to XIV after getting hard filtered by Alexander Savage but who knows if it will happen, and other ecelebs still occasionally pull a Preach and say
      >this is the final straw Ion, I'm NEVER coming back to WoW
      >1 week later
      >My return to World of Warcraft, what's changed?
      barry and his followers spamming Ganker, /wowg/, and /xivg/ doesn't help either. And yes I did mean to say "his followers", Barry really only spams Ganker, /wowg/ is a pretender who doesn't exhibit the same schizo behavior as the person he's pretending to be.

    Zero interest in doing the Ultimate in 2 weeks, never touching another ultimate after wasting my life clearing DSR and having to deal with retard DPS that didn't want to hold and greeded pointless DPS.

    Sophia Unreal is unironically the best thing in the patch. It's pathetic how much more fun Sophia is than the new EX. New EX literally has zero healing or tank mechanics the entire fight. Like zero raidwide damage, and apparently you can just shield a DPS through the single 2 target buster. Zero mechanics going on in the new EX outside of the mechanic vomit after adds and the shitty limit cut. Compare that to Sophia which is very interestingly paced, and surprisingly fun to tank because there are a ton of swaps that you can't just shirk though.

                Well, no. We saw with Fandaniel that the person being Zodiark's heart is basically wearing him like a suit. So if Elidibus was ejected from the heart he should have just been himself, which is consistent with how he was always counted among the Unsundered. But with everything fucked, and Zodiark's purpose being derivative of his own will, he went on to mantle the concept of salvation and become the WoL Primal.

                He was himself. It was Elidibus's soul taking the shape of Elidibus again, but he was also still Zodiark's core, so he had the traits of a primal. Like how Louisoix was both the primal Phoenix and still also himself.

                No primal has ever behaved like that. Is it like a separate primal or what? It's clearly behaving like a soul.
                I took the whole ending as being a reveal where this great warrior of salvation primal was revealed to just be the cope of a child in way over his head that had long suppressed his own identity underneath that persona because he couldn't confront his loss.

                Saying "well actually it really was just a Primal of the concept of salvation" doesn't match because at the end he shows personal memories and emotions that don't connect to the Primal's concept. No other pure Primal has ever gone OOC and gotten weepy like that.

      You're probably going to have to wait weeks, Anon.

Venat and Meteion have been a thing for about a year now and they barely have anything.

      It's a different process.
      Primal SUMMONING, although it can depend on Faith and Prayers, is all just about the summoning aspect. Because Primals in the end are just a modified version of Ascian aether constructs.
      Dynamis on the other hand is more... dynamic. And so, Faith, Prayer, EMOTIONS, affect the being in real time. Unlike a Primal, which once is summoned, that's all what you get.

          Even then, they wouldn't have a body left in the Thirteenth to go back to once they die. In Y'shtola's explanation, you quite literally see that voidsent that get summoned just drop unconscious on the spot until they go back.

            So Voidsent who are summoned to the Source don't actually die, but ones who manage to get here by their own do die? Why?

            • 2 weeks ago
              Anonymous

              Because every creature is composed of their body and their soul. When voidsent get summoned, only their soul is being called (literally what happened to the Scions in ShB when you stop to think about it, only since they had no body substitute it was far more dangerous thanks G'raha). Their body stays on the Thirteenth, immobile. They get put into a suitable body (in the example it was statues) and if that is destroyed, they just get ejected back into their real bodies, in the Thirteenth.
              When they cross entirely via portal, they're bringing both body and soul, so they can die for good. They're also in the Source, which means they go into that lifestream instead of the Thirteenth's shitty broken one that leaks souls back into the world.

        and Rubicante just pop into the Source no problem
        Cagnazzo and Rubicante gorged themselves on a dragon's Aether. On one of the first brood, no less.
        We have seen time and time again that the older a dragon is, the more powerful it is. And the more powerful it is, the more having a piece of it can allow someone to do.
        If an elder wyrm's eyes can turn a withered old man into a 15 foot tall king giga chad along with his entire contingent of knights, or allow a dragon's spirit to warp the shit out of a single dragoon to the point that the dragon can warp his body into his old Draconic one, it's not a stretch to assume that a pair of strong voidsent can show up on The Source with that power. Even something as simple as an elder wyrm's scale can be fashioned into a powerful warp that counters tempering.

        I wouldn't be surprised if we find out later that the only reason we were even able to travel to the first without losing our bodies like the others back in Shadowbringers wasn't because G'raha finally got the spell right or because of the Blessing of Light or because we're just so damn strong and cool, but because we have a direct connection to Midgardsormr even while he slumbers.

          It's dragon's eye magic I aint gonna explain shit

          The reason voidsent can't just casually cross unless they're very weak is because of aetherial density. The power of the eye should make it far more difficult for them to cross over. Cagnazzo used the eye to tear open a Crystal Tower tier voidgate in Lapis Manalis, but what did Rubicante do? They never explain it. He just blows his way through a small sealed voidgate and expect you to rush to the trial before you stop to think about HOW.

            Azdaja has two eyes and half the job was already done. The only difference is that Rubicante didn't cross over carrying the other eye because they wanted the attention to be on Garlemald.

                I like to think Golbez and Rubicante were standing right on the other side of Cagnazzo's portal trying to peek through and see what was going on right down until he died, then they were like
                >Damn, lucky him, he gets to reincarnate.
                >Yeah...
                >...

                >OH SHIT

                Alternatively, it might be yet another sign that the Thirteenth is moving slightly slower than the Source and it took Rubicante much longer to reach his spot than they anticipated.

      I've been thinking lately.
      I fucking hate Titania's trial, and Stormblood is what causes it.
      Look at the first Trials of each expac barring EW; Ravana, Susano, Titania.
      Ravana's a giant sword wielding bug who twirls his swords around like a performer as he hits you with them, and halfway through he literally starts singing fucking opera on top of an already cool theme.
      Susano is fucking Susano. He's got cool lines, cool attacks, a cool design, and he has three different fucking themes on top of one the single most famous phase transitions in any Trial at all.
      And then there's just Titania, a fairy with a single mediocre theme, a mediocre and phase, and boring attacks.
      God I miss pre-ShB's direction.

          You know this happens constantly every single patch right? Alisaie's relationship with you is different in the MSQ for a long time in HW if you haven't befriended her already by doing Coil beforehand. Estinien's relationship with you as well depending on whether you've done his DRG quests. Not to mention G'raha in Shadowbringers since Crystal Tower used to be optional.

          In the latest patch you get different cutscenes if you've finished the master role quest and sent many of the garleans to live on the moon.
