    It does serve as an example of how a game that doesn't appeal to everyone can still be incredibly popular and also be successful.

    One thing I am absolutely convinced of. Most posters at mmorpg.com have no clue. This forum is so far out of touch with the majority of the MMORPG world it's really a joke. I won't even exclude myself from that. 

    Most the 'vocal' minority that chats on here, besides the few good eggs you'll find eventually, are very full of bullshit & ignorance, and are just spewing hate/fanboyism, & plain out trolling [mod edit]

     

    Alot of the community here is from old games and they are searching, generally in vain, for something to fill the void, and they don't usually have 10k postcounts, anyone with mass amounts of posts is 99% of the time one of the Bad eggs, and 1% a OG fighting in vain trying to convince people that old school games actually kicked ass and had more depth and content.

    And just guessing, but I'm guessing out of the whole viewers of MMORPG.com, only 10% of them actually take part in the posting.

    Not sure what you mean by "traditional", but free form classless systems are more "traditional" in my eyes.

     

    The only reason Classes were implemented in some mmorpgs, is generally because the developers are to lazy to balance there game properly around such a cool idea as actually BUILDING AND CUSTOMIZING YOUR CHARACTER ( RPG ).

     I think the whole Classes = Traditional stems from DnD which while not the first TTRPG  it is the most famous and the ring that ruled them all...err I mean game. The whole idea of Role playing as playing the role of a paladin or wizard is what most view it as. While a Paladin who knows Necromantic magic  makes a good story and unique character for a personal game session. Its kinda of a turn off in a huge world setting when everyone can and does do that.

    Think of it in terms of  Lore, If a Paladin had access to all the skills of a Thaum or a Monk it would be lore that its normal for Paladins to do that since 1,000+ players have that build, it would be considered normal.  He really wouldnt be a paladin infact there would be no Roles at all (not referring to combat roles but character ). Now in FF14  you can have a Gladiator who instead of perfecting his art and becoming a fabled Paladin. Chooses to broaden his fighting style by taking some beginner lessons in Thaum(why would you), some lessons in Pugalist and some techniques from the lancers in Gardinia. 

    But on a technical view point even UO and AC had classes just like EQ... except in those games there called "builds" There's only a few good ones so in fact  Forced-class games actually produce more variety.

    Waited to the last moment and removed my reoccurring subscription, honeymoon is over and boredom set in.

    It was real and it was nice but it was not real nice.

    The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.

    Why would you put your CC info in? It didnt ask you for one when you created the account nor do you need one for the free 30days.....

     

    Are you so conditioned that you actively searched for a  way to input your CC information? Or are you just lieing about playing the game?

    In what part of his post did he mention that he put his CC info in?

    Now it's been a long time since I last paid my subscription, but I believe I did pay my reocurring subscription using PayPal.

    The only way you can end up with a recurring subscription is by entering your billing information...

    That should be obvious.

    Same. Every time I've logged in during primetime since the last patch on my server i get queues. Even without the queues you can see and feel how packed it is. The haters of this game better get comfortable, it's not going anywhere. If there is anything this game lacks it's a lack of content. The sky is the limit at this point.

    Problem is queues don't really mean anything, just as when they needed to increase server caps they can decrease server caps just as easily in preperation of the player loss and also many will be staying online to give the illusion of full servers while they goto bed or work, the afk kicker is easy to block.

    This was very popular on FFXI, many would never log to inflate player numbers.

     

    The problem honestly with what you're trying to accomplish with this thread is you're showing the exact opposite, your fear of failure.  If you were genuinly confident you wouldn't make a thread like this and indeed you wouldn't defend it so strongly either because you wouldn't need to.

    You're right, there are thousands of players who are all soooo personally invested in making sure this game looks more popular than it is, they are leaving their computers and game running 24/7.

    If you told me a couple hundred obsessed fans were doing this I might believe you. But to think any significant amount of players are doing this Is poppycock.

    And people AFKing all night to avoid not being able to log back in before the fixes is entirely different.

    You never played FFXI did you?

    Huge chunks of these people never logged off at all and you could see them afk in the same spot in the popular "afk spots" with search comments "At work" "Asleep" etc, there was huge anger at afk kicker on FFXIV because of these players that migrated over to this new game.  The afk kicker is incredibly easy to get around so they stopped complaining and still never log off.

    [mod edit]

     

    Of course I don't think it's just that, they obviously would of lowered the server caps too.  There is no reason to have such high server caps anymore, they wouldn't advertise the fact they did it though would they.

     

    Anyone that thinks there are just as many people playing now as when it was free is crazy.

    I can't even...

     

    You make it sound like us FFXI players stayed logged in just to inflate server numbers... When that is far from the truth... 

    We stayed logged in because of the Bazaar and selling items through it that couldn't be sold via the Auction House. Those popular spots were there because everyone knew that that is where you could buy Dynamis currency and other things that couldn't be bought through the AH... Never played FFXI did you? FFXIV is doing well, nobody can deny that. Its Fact. No they wouldn't ninja lower the cap while they are still having queues and other server stability issues... thats just retarded. 

    Keep coming up with your conspiracy theories though they are amusing to say the least. 

    "In the immediate future, we have this one, and then we’ve got another one that is actually going to be – so we’re going to have, what we want to do, is in January, what we’re targeting to do, this may or may not happen, so you can’t hold me to it. But what we’re targeting to do, is have a fun anniversary to the Ilum shenanigans that happened. An alien race might invade, and they might crash into Ilum and there might be some new activities that happen on the planet." ~Gabe Amatangelo
