Scot said:He does seem to have done an amazing job. But I would say in todays gaming climate how many franchises other than FF would have had the money to reinvent their MMO and have such a strong fan base that they could do so and players would not have written them off after such a failure?
While there is no doubt the FF name has a lot of draw, the
quality would have spoken for itself over time... I think the real question is,
would anyone other than SE have enough pride in their IP that they are willing
to invest so much in correcting their mistakes?
And grats to Yoshi P, very much deserved (and appreciated for creating a modern FF game worthy of the name).
Freudian slip?DracSchnider said:First of all I'm going to set a few things straight seeing that I have read a lot of the forums here.
Play to win does not exist in SOTA. ...
So wait till after launch, read some reviews, watch some streams, see what others are saying about it...Goromhir said:Its damn risky to buy games these days, in the past we have been BETA Testers over years after buying games.
Make it F2P with a shop like the most others and i might try it.
No way i pay $50 in advance for a online game i have not tested by myself before buying in 2018 !
Windows 10 is fine, stop being stupid.
There is no reason not to move to 10, it's now stable and it was free.
I'd say FF:XIV is doing just damn fine at competing... and, although it is just a guess, I would also say FF:XIV is a major reason Blizzard is giving half a s*** about content updates again.Lobotomist said:I just read random article , some tidbit about what Blizzard learned from last WoW expansion. And one thought blew my mind.
300 developers actively working on WoW. Even now 12 years after.
So its 16 years of continuous content development with team that is 300 people at its smallest - and its all Blizzard quality people.
LOL , how can anything compete ?
( disclaimer , i dont play WoW , neither did I play it since Vanilla )
