I guess SE don't want to risk losing too many of the community to other games before ARR is out, turning XIV 1.0 into a glorified chat room. Too good for it I say.
It’s kind of annoyed, like the 1.0 fans aren’t pandered to enough, (not that they appreciate it) I just hope keeping this thing alive isn’t taking too much resources from ARR’s development. I often wonder how sooner and how much better ARR could have been if they had just shut down 1.0 when Yoshida took over.
On the plus side the FFXIV forums should be getting less visitations from the cult of Tanaka about how terrible ARR is because it isn’t aimed at a bunch of out of touch masochistic FFXI fossils. The community is already divided enough, the old guard Tanaka followers remain, (despite he never showing any respect to them) to nit-pick and whine, and the backlash against them is growing. We may end up with no 1.0 players (that liked it) at all at launch, I just hope we get enough new blood.
Still, it's better than the alternative, Yoshida caving to the idiots and losing the rest of the mmo world. My hatred for XIV 1.0 is rapidly being replaced with the disgust at those that defend it. It's one thing to like aspects of it, (as I do) it's another, very selfish and ignorant thing, to hate on ARR for features it needs to have to survive, that no rational person should be surprised are now being incorporated.
Originally posted by Lexin Yeah they put them back up on I think Nov 21st I played a bit but not much as it is pointless. But they wont lose me if I do play another MMO it will be XI.
Good to hear, I guess those who need their mmo to be a FF one are not going to be tempted by the RIfts and Gw2s of this world, still, I wonder how SE are going to handle XI if ARR works out. I assume they would rather get as many from XI to ARR as possible for when they shut XI down one day. Having said that Tanaka didn't seem interested in getting any XI players into his turkey, as he avoided as many elements of it as he could. I wonder how many and what features from XI Yoshida would have to include to tempt them to his mmo.

Highly doubt that since FFXI is getting a new expansion next year.
