In an interview with Kim Richards of PCGamer at 12:00pm February 22 2013 Naoki Yoshida says, "We took our fanbase for granted,” he says. “We lacked the knowledge of the global standard for MMOs, the knowledge of other titles. We didn’t have the heart, the spirit or the passion to challenge the market.” But not anymore.
As an avid player of Dark Ages of Camelot for years I believe Yoshida will use the same PvP style.
Yoshida has played games like GW2,WOW, Rift, he names several more. Yoshida is using these games as a model of what players want as well as everything the players tell him.
Everything is changing and from what I have seen in beta everyone will get the game they thought they would get when they first heard of FFXIV. They have added a system that we have seen in other games. Defined by Yoshia: Full Active Time Events, or FATE for short. These events will take place in non-instanced areas and appear at random. Players can participate by simply being within proximity of the event, and there's no need to form parties. Rewards are automatically distributed when it's over, making it easy to jump in and have fun.
The first FFXIV was base on battles and leveling this go around it will be more story based and quest.
