              MMO boomers and their "it should take 3 years to get a minor achievement or it's not a real MMO" schtick is just boring at this point. They played vidya back when losers could afford to waste their lives doing pointless shit. Now they claim that only a chain around your neck is a "meaningful challenge".

                an MMO is about having lots of players come together to do content together, be it older games were solo progression was near impossible so you had to group up, or more modern MMO's where there are massive group bosses and maps that need lots of players spread across them to get content done. XIV is neither of those, you sit in a queue waiting for a few other players to fight your bosses 'together' and all wordlessly leave when its done.

                It's not playing with other people. There is no community, there is no social element, its not an MMO. It's a single player game where you can see other players sometimes, but its not an MMO. It literally offers less teamwork and community than TF2. Is TF2 an MMO?

                It's an MMO. The game and its structure hasn't changed, the players themselves and the ecosystem and mediums through which they interface with the game have.

                20 years ago when playing WoW, you knew jack shit. There was maybe Thottbot and Allakhazam. Now there's Discords and Wowhead and Icy-Veins and raider/io and ffxivlogs and gamerescape and whatnot.

                It is. PF is a lobby, as is whatever city-state you're accessing the PF from. You're not heading out into the world and marching through danger to get your friends to go dungeon diving in Tam-Tara. You're queueing in from a lobby like PSO.
                >or optional
                They just spent all of EW going back and removing all the required multiplayer from ARR, and removing all dungeon multiplayer from other expansions. The only times you're required to team up with other people now are trials after level 50. And Dawntrail is going to have trusts for trials so it will be 100% entirely single player.

                >never played WoW
                Honestly, you're in no position to have an informed opinion on what is or isn't an MMO.

                If WoW is your defining MMO, then what about the open world aspects? I think vanilla WoW had no dungeon finder, so do you define WoW based on dungeon finder or not? And what about the RPG elements that XIV lacks? XIV is missing a ton of WoW's features, so if that's your definition then XIV still falls short.

                Open world dungeon entrances etc. are not critical to a game being an MMO. You're treating the very logical 20 year long evolution towards more QoL, less timesink/friction, and FFXIV not falling into the trap of illusion of choice as if the entire game structure has changed. It hasn't.

                The existence of Eureka/Bozja content or even simple hunt trains proves you wrong, never mind ignoring over two decades of change in the genre. It's not 1999 anymore.

                But that does change the entire structure. Games are defined by the roadblocks that they put in your way, and if you sand away all the edges then you're removing the definition. MMOs are large scale adventure games with a heavy emphasis on socializing and cooperation. And if a game doesn't have those aspects, it can't be called an MMO. Just like if Mario removed pits and walls from the game it wouldn't be a platformer anymore.
                >The existence of Eureka/Bozja content or even simple hunt trains proves you wrong
                That's side content, but yes Eureka/Bozja and Ishgard Restoration are proper MMO content.

                Well thankfully you had a silly strawman comic on hand so you didn't have to formulate your own thoughts on the matter. The fact is games are defined by what you call 'tedious bullshit'. A game wouldn't be fun if you pressed New Game and the credits started rolling. MMOs are properly hostile by design to give players something to band together against, and that's really the point of the genre. It's a large scale persistent D&D game where the game by its nature gives you a reason to head into the equivalent of a tavern to find fellow adventurers to deal with whatever unfair bullshit the game has put in your way.

                [...]
                Do you honestly think a traditional MMO (by what you read into that term) would still work in current year?

                I think it could, if it had more of an emphasis on lifestyle content. I don't think it would do WoW numbers but I don't think any game can, or should be expected to. Isekai is huge right now and there's a niche waiting to be filled by people who want that feeling of really living in a fantasy world rather than grinding dailies and currencies and doing raids. Something like Star Wars Galaxies that gives people freedom to live how they want would have huge potential right now.

                I'm not bemoaning anything, I don't know how many times I have to repeat that before you get it. The only thing I'm doing is saying that it's not an MMO. For some reason you think this is a hostile statement, or that I'm angry, or that I'm trying to besmirch the game's reputation. Why? Can you even explain why you believe that?

                How do you mean? They've been going loopy for 3 years about.
                Not sure about the veracity of the claim that it's a Trancer, but this is more an aside.

                Anti-Barry just tells people they don't play the game and if they prove that they do then he says they bought the account. He's not interested in a conversation, he's interested in shitflinging.

                Congratulations. It isn't an MMO in your opinion. Now what? It's not going to change what XIV is defined as, how most people will see it, or make even half of the people you talk to change their point of view.

                Well I'd say that's a problem for the future of the genre, because now people like you will come to expect MMOs to be largely single player experiences. And people who start the game thinking XIV is an MMO may be disappointed to find that it isn't. The point of assigning genres is to describe what the game is like, and if the labelled genre is incorrect then it's not fulfilling its purpose. Anyway, this whole reply chain is because you got irrationally defensive over saying it's not an MMO so it's clearly very important to you that it is perceived as an MMO. Can you explain why?

                I genuinely believe that if you took the old-school mmo formula and gave it modern UI, graphics, and a more fun/engaging gameplay loop it would probably do pretty well
                the challenge is getting investors that don't expect wow-killer numbers and devs that are willing to tell the "muh hardcore" players to eat a dick

                Yeah. Runescape (OSRS specifically) is right now the most popular it has ever been and Classic WoW is routinely more popular than retail.
                I think XIV is a good game for what it is but it's hardly an MMO in my mind. It's just a JRPG you can play with other people.

                Can you honestly say OSRS and WoW Classic are authentic experiences?

                It had the best fricking housing system of any MMO ever. Instead of the "haha gotcha now you gotta stay subscribed forever or lose your house" trap filled with millions of limitations brought on by consoles that is this dogshit game's housing system.
                The netcoding was actually decent. Again, unlike this dogshit mess of a game.
                Attacks were clearly telegraphed and didn't require you running ten millions addons basically playing the game for you, unlike WoW.
                The races were actually interesting, unlike XIV's "haha human but has animal features" or WoW's 20 different flavors of elf.

                Wildstar was and died an objectively a better game than the so-called "top MMOs" on the market. The only real problem the game had was that the devs were morons and actually thought MMOgays weren't lying tasteless morons who thought they're the top 1% when they struggle leveling and made content too challenging and poopsocking for the average adult videogame enjoyer and made content exclusively for said 1% - without actually looking at the amount of players doing that content.
                Also the game lacked "fluff" content that keeps non-playing troons engaged with the game like XIV's photo mode and Second Life tier mods, WoW's MOUNTSMOGSPETSCHEEVOS autism, or WoW's M+ aka troony speedrunning mode.

                They've always existed. It's always been part of the MMO landscape that there will be people who will optimize all the fun out of the game. That doesn't mean everyone plays like that, even today.
                I would argue the median player is a casual who looks things up when he feels he is being inconvenienced, but doesn't strictly adhere to guides unless forced to, ie when they are in a competitive raiding guild or PvP environment.
                Which is exactly the same as a player from back then.

                It literally is on record for that. The people at the top of the community were moronic sweatlords and eceleb orbiters. The same way PF enforces a meta, classic did so as well, and even where it couldn't be enforced, "classicgays" tried to deliberately kill whatever magic classic had by getting boosted through the "journey" instead of actually playing it.

                You're right in the sense that this is just what happens to every online game on a long enough timeline.
                The casuals get bored and leave, because that's how trends work, and the people left over still playing months and years down the line are the sweatlords you're talking about because those are the people who really care about the game and want to succeed in it.

                However, there absolutely was a "pure" time to be playing Classic, when the majority of people were casuals who didn't care, and it was phase 1 and early phase 2.

                >"classicgays" tried to deliberately kill whatever magic classic had by getting boosted through the "journey" instead of actually playing it.
                on their second or third character, after they had already played through the game multiple times... boosting is also not a new concept and was being done back in the 2000s, too. The concept was popularized by this guy in TBC:

                The cancer had already set by then, in part due to streamers. It wasn't as bad as it is now, but yeah, the community really makes games like classic impossible.

                Yeah. Runescape (OSRS specifically) is right now the most popular it has ever been and Classic WoW is routinely more popular than retail.
                I think XIV is a good game for what it is but it's hardly an MMO in my mind. It's just a JRPG you can play with other people.

        playerauctions "level" is determined by some weighted average of your feedback, sales, and orders over a 30 day period. a higher level means they are actually delivering the things being ordered and receiving good feedback
        someone could order 20 services at a time, that counts as 1 order, and the sellers sales goes up by 1 for each service delivered so 1 order is 20 sales

          Most of the problems in XIV threads come from WoWgays and just a general extension of doomhomosexualry Tortanic board culture that has taken on new, more moronic than ever proportions over the past year.

        I would argue that it's an inherit feature of the human condition being misused outside of its evolutionary scope. If you hear an opinion or definite statement about anything that you are not involved with, you will subconsciously note it down. If the something gets repeatedly stated, and you are not aware that we feel criticism more strongly than praise (one failure is a bigger risk than 100 successes), then you might assume that a negative oft spoken is true by necessity. How many of the proponents are abject morons is questionable, but they are definitely more robot than troll.

                To the Edge and Fleeting Moment are both still in the game, and both play in entirely different scenarios. If you don't like one of the two, that's fine, but it's not like To the Edge was taken behind the shack and shot through the back of the head so that Fleeting Moment could take its spot.

              Doing something a second time but worse devalues the impact of the original because the newer less impactful version is more fresh in memory. The Star Wars OT has been made worse by the sequel trilogy being a retread that attempts to bring out the same feelings as the original but with less impact, emotion, and craftsmanship. It's the same for the Elidibus fight in Pandaemonium. The music is worse, the design isn't as good, the build up to the fight is shallow compared to the original, etc. Lightning didn't strike a second time and I resent them for trying and failing instead of leaving well enough alone.

    14 has little going for it BUT story (and even that is questionable, Stormblood was mediocre). I’d say the music is better than most of the story.

    It’s mid in nearly every other aspect. As an MMO, the difficulty is a joke, dungeons/raids are less about any sort of real skill or strategy and more about playing DDR and mashing buttons qith the occasional DPS check or hazard to watch out for. The classes are so homogenized that they have almost no class identity and there are no difference between different players playing the same classes, enforcing people being strict about rotations and judging people more for not making their rotations as efficiently as they should.

    The lore of the world outside of the main story and the main story of each expansion is mostly shallow and perhaps even non existent. The main story is mostly ok (the first time), but any passive storytelling is almost nonexistant.

    The housing system is crap and people stay up and lose sleep in order to log on in order to even have the chance at housing (false scarcity). I can’t think of any relatively popular MMOs that do this worse. It’s just a ploy to force people to keep their subscription going or lose their residence.

    The game has issues and mostly no one will make light of them. I quit after Shadowbringer but I STILL hear friends complaining about things that were issues over half a decade ago (The Hrothgar hat crisis is a perfect example of something that should have never released) Several MMOs address issues and fix them promptly, FFXIV doesn’t, really, because the community acts like they aren’t issues.

      Maps are mostly empty and thus the world feels empty because players have no reason or incentive to visit old maps. GW2 is probably the best at this and ESO as well. The “one character with all classes” design, while convenient to the player, compounds this issue because no one reruns old content with new characters (because it’s a massive chore

      The gameplay is mediocre due to the homogenized classes. It’s pretty… that’s about it. The actual gameplay isn’t great for an MMO. It’d shallow and provide very little room for strategy or “learning”. Tanking is braindead and easy, DPSing is following the single correct rotation for your class, and healing is what it always tends to be in MMOs, a pain in the arse babysitter that people crap on.

      And fashion? Several MMOs do this better, GW2 especially. I don’t know if they updated the glamour system since Shadowbringer but it’s always been clunky and tedious compared to mostly any other MMO I’ve played

      And worst of all? The subscription and HORRENDOUS monetization that shouldn’t even exist In a game you’re forced to pay for and forced to pay a subscription for. That crap is something a FtP MMO would have and be expected to have. Hell, although it ruined WoW a bit, How’s token system at least gives you a chance not to have to pay each month so long as you have the gold. Also, having to pay a HIGHER subscription each month per retainer you have instead of a one time fee is absolutely disgusting. Also being unable to remove them? Doubly so.

      Fire-and-forget summons are dogshit.
      I will never get over the fact that they took Bahamut & Phoenix and turned them into brainless turrets instead of summons that actually reacted to your inputs.
      The entire design philosophy of EW was fricking moronic. "We want to make the game more accessible by completely removing all player agency and making it impossible to ever frick-up, so there's also no feeling of success or triumph when you do well."

              You're the one getting defensive over me saying a track you like sounds like it's from a licensed Musou game. It takes a total moron to not recognize how retreading a scene or track can have an outsized negative reaction from people who have a lot of love for the original. Remixes and remakes of good things always take more scrutiny than originals. I'm not mad that the original was deleted. I'm mad they didn't respect it enough not to do it again but worse.

              FFXIV is the gentleman thief reference that FF5's introduction of the job and almost all franchise depictions of since have followed
              FFXI meanwhile is the huge outlier that they've never followed since. Especially since it's got essentially nothing to do with the job's traditional look and because it intruded on Mystic Knight so badly that XI had to introduce Rune Fencer as its own original Mystic Knight when they wanted a spellsword enchanter job

        Maybe it happened again. He also often gets image banned because the homosexual can't make a post without posting his ugly character.

      RDM has more utility so it does less damage. That's how it works and that's how it should work. They should add more utility and lower its damage even further. But also, you're wrong.

          Her having lived and slowly waned for 12,000 years, growing increasingly fatigued over the eons, and her being a symbol of the 10-year arc of FFXIV was a reason to kill her off, narratively speaking. I don't like it, but it was a justification and a rationale.

          a lot of new skills are job-flavored variants of things venat and hydaelyn did in the solo fight and trial, so solar bahamut is summoner's manifestation of the hydaelyn inspiration

    XIV was extremely unpopular on Ganker for years after it released, barely being mentioned outside of the /vg/ thread with its troons and drama. Most of them struggled with their rotations.

    The zoomers raised on this story game pretending to be an MMO, are now adults, and only now does it get regular threads on Ganker, and they're the exact same quality as those /vg/ threads were. There is very little gameplay discussion, except people pointing out how bad current content is, people naively expecting new updates to change things, ERP, and vaguely discussing the story. Most seem to struggle with their rotations.

    And it makes sense. SE didn't want to reboot the game as a better XI with similar challenges of an MMO, they needed to make back the money and reputation they lost, they needed a very low skill ceiling for a very wide audience - and these people are perfect for it.

        >regular
        That's not true at all, lol. They were rare and mocked, told to go back to /vg/, and they'd always wind up getting deleted because apart from the trolling it was just the same shitty ERP as the /vg/ thread. The idea that XIV players were being persecuted by the mods is just nuts.

        This is relevant, because the gameplay discussion hasn't changed since then, it's still
        >I like this raid (no explanation or explanation unrelated to gameplay)
        >what'd they do to cleric stance?
        >I wish they'd stop removing the things that make the jobs fun to play
        >I wish the game was fun to play
        >maybe you should play WoW or something instead, homosexual?

        I started playing on and off 11 years ago, not longer after ARR's release, and stopped playing 5 years ago. Of all the MMOs I've played, this is the only one that is most "fun with friends" slop. There's nothing wrong with the people who get tired of the same formula every single update.

              What probably happened is that they fashioned a benchmark out of an old build that was way deprecated by the time the benchmark actually came out, so it had a lot of stuff that was unfinished, and probably some files dependencies that were broken.
              And it probably would normally not have been as big an issue, but we're at a pivotal point in the game's cycle where everyone's characters are on the cusp of being permanently changed, as well as the game as a whole
              if EW's benchmark had had an unfinished/old build like this, it probably wouldn't have been nearly as big an issue, but because it came paired with our first publicly available look at the graphical update, it was a way bigger deal, and they should've been aware of how it was going to go.

            3. Not sure how I feel about fogging the environment up with blue gas that desaturates stuff in the background. I feel like it kills some of the warm, sunny, temperate vibes and brings us back to that old "you need gshade for a vibrant game" shit that I felt the less foggy benchmark 1 environment kind of fought against. Maybe I'm being alarmist, though. I know depth fog is just kind of a realism thing, I just hope they don't go overboard and fear that the place will look less warm and in your face because of it.

            Overall a very good improvement. I really like that face and I'm glad they didn't ruin it because of feedback.

      Guild Wars 2 DID deal with that. There isn't a GW2 general on /vg/ specifically because jannies ignored it when it was getting spam-botted to death. TESO doesn't deal with it because it barely has any presence at all on Ganker, there isn't high Ganker interest in it and that arose naturally.

          If they were gonna delay it, I assume they'd have told us already. But you never know, they could run into issues and have to change the launch date. I hope not, though.
          In hindsight, maybe it's a good thing they delayed the launch a little from their original plans to avoid bumping into the Elden Ring DLC. Imagine if they had their original launch date set in place and had to adjust all this stuff as well.
          Feels like it's gonna be hard for them to make it in time as is, let alone if they had to launch a week earlier.

          They won't delay the launch, if anything they'll promise improvements in a patch soon after launch if it becomes an issue. There are several smaller patches that happen to unlock content like normal mode two weeks after launch anyway so they have some leeway.
