I can understand that people love playing MMO's and that there are even some console games that would make great online games. I'm sorry but Final Fantasy isn't one of them. Your making it a pay to play and also having to buy the game. I agree with others, it's going to turn out just like W.o.W. where everyone is leaving for another game with better graphics and storyline plus all they have to contend with is a item mall or something.
Final Fantasy was my favorite game until 9, after that they all went downhill. but hey, then again what do I know, i'm just a individual who isn't going to play or waste my time with a game I have to pay monthly for. Final Fantasy has been ruined as far as I'm concerned.
Good luck to you all and I hope it doesn't crash on you again.
Originally posted by goosh Let me first say that i played ff11 and i played 14 from alpha 5 and I was lucky enough to get into ARR alpha . Although I cannot go into details of the game I can say Its a compleate 180 from what it was. Load times Graphics usability and alot of other things have been done to cater to the fans . If you had an account or if your thinking of playing Dont think Just do this Will be an amazing game . SE has listened to its fans give them the benifit of the doupt just get rdy to play because its just pure raw unadulterated epic awesomeness
Reading posts like this, Watching the videos out there of FF14 ARR works for me. I played FF14 beta it failed miserably. Judge from the game there making, not the game they made. Critics always gonna come down on SE hard for there failures(FF14), that being said dont u think SE know they have to make a game the fans want and there under immense pressure to provide? No room for mistakes in my eyes. This alone is why my eyes are pealed and i cant wait for this games release.

If you get in, remember, most of the content isnt in this version, (some people have been very quick to judge and break NDA).
I've never been a Final Fantasy fan, but have kept up on the developments of this game simply becuase it is such a unique and refreshing strategy. I applaud Square Enix for their guts to try this and really hope it is successful. Who knows, I may have to give Realm reborn a try after it launches.
Originally posted by Inktomi Good read Ryahl and it will be interesting to see how this unfolds. One questions that no one has been able to answer: Someone gifted me the limited edition new, it is till never been opened. Will I be able to use that software to connect to the server as a client once the game is re-released. I even sent a letter to customer service and they haven't responded.
no, you dont need to rebuy the game when it gets released.
you can use your old registration key to create a new account. When "A Realm reborn" launched you will be able to download the reboot (PC!) version for free.
It is going to be a total different game client.

If the first attempt at an MMO was so terrible that they essentially had to apologize and start over, I kind of wonder if starting over is actually a good idea. I mean, think about it, they are essentially doubling down on the investment they are making in the game, except when the second version launches they have a lot of negative energy to overcome in addition to all of the usual hurdles a new MMO faces. If A Realm Reborn crashes and burns they are going to lose their pants on the investment versus how much money it makes. Based on how most MMOs that are not WoW are doing, this seems like a bad idea. Might have been smarter to let this one die.

You didn't grow up with Square and the Final Fantasy series did you? A hint: they are not giving up on a "real" final fantasy entry without a fight and 2. Japanese business culture leaves more room for apology than Western.
Not gonna go into details either but... I'm VERY IMPRESSED by what I've played of a friend's Alpha. The gameplay is fun, combat is fast, the world feels alive, the soundtrack is frickin' amazing. And it runs like clockwork.
We have a lot to look forward to here guys.
Said it before, any MMO company that sticks with a game after a dreadful launch deserves a nod.
Yes they should have had a better game ready at the original launch, but AO had a really bad launch, if Funcom had just given up that would not have said much for them. That was back in the day when you could have a bad launch and players would forgive you. Today’s content locusts just want to see the game buried and move on.
So all power to them in giving it a second go. I always say don’t preorder and it was advice born out here. So once again, wait until it launches and see what the reviews say, the proper review that is not one of those weekly pre-reviews they now do after launch.

Agreed. Final Fantasy is the game that saved Square back in the '80's, and every entry into the series has been fantastic in one way or another (I've played FF1-FF14.1.0). No way they let this one die.
In the early 1980's in Japan there was a little known game developer that had several unsuccessful games to their name. The president of the company decided to make one last game before the company went under and he retired. The game would be a fantasy RPG and their last effort. In 1987 they gave the world Final Fantasy.
They have beaten the odds before and I believe they will again.
