    Name: Dazusu
    World: Asura
    A secluded spring in Jugner Forest I frequent to contemplate my battle plan.

    I may not have played for a few years; but that doesn't mean I haven't followed the game and announcements from the development team. Of course, we don't have solid numbers or facts because they...

    Except in this case, FFXIV:ARR is doing a lot better than FFXI. In almost every respect.

    The number of people currently subscribed to Final Fantasy XI is a direct gauge for the amount of interest...

    That makes you an optimist, not a realist. I admire the persistence of your argument, though (and I too hope the revival of the game could happen... but the realist in me knows it won't)

    I'm just a realist. You can't compare this to the FFVII Remake. It's a completely different situation. I would presume that Square Enix gauge the demand for Final Fantasy XI by the number of people...

    SE are a corporation; a Japanese one at that. Can you imagine the shame of needing a Kick Starter to improve a "Final Fantasy" numbered title? Logically, it will *never* happen. If it was going to...

    This is nothing but conjecture. I already contribute to the development of this game. It's called a monthly subscription.

    Any type of re-imagining of this game or its engine for massive...

    Uh no. It would mean buying a Japanese version of Windows. Hardly the same thing.

    This is an awful move by SE (IMO), but at the same time - I understand why it has been done in the case of FFXI. Anything that assists the game in staying alive longer is okay by me. So long as it...

    No one is being "ripped off" here, value is subjective to the beholder. If you feel it's not worth your money - stop paying. Those that feel it's good value will continue to pay.

    I'm not sure why...

    Of course it will be possible. They are re-writing the client from the ground up; and the back-end servers to support the new client for a mobile environment. The question is do they want to add new...

    By and large, they would be wrong. But that's okay; it's fun to have a discussion on this stuff. :D

    Yes. It's common in 2015 for advanced engines. But we're talking C for this game's server, not even C++ (again, assumption, but realistic based on the time frame of initial development)

    Cutscenes are compiled into .DAT files and kept client side, and contain the NPC dialogue required within.
    Other NPC dialogue that doesn't come from a cutscene is also stored within .DAT files.

    I love that it's so easy to get banned from this forum; you have to state and clarify the intentions of your post at the end of it to avoid a ban.

    Good post though.

    At this point - it wouldn't surprise me if the roadmap for development is complete and there isn't much room to maneuver. I have to wonder if it's even worth posting suggestions - given that the...

    I don't see a reason to merge servers, purely because all current relevant content can be taken on with 6 or less people; it's not like you need to gather alliances or more anymore.

    I never implied the game was going to die with my post; just that the current direction the game is (and has been taking since the latter half of Adoulin) is not the one the vast majority of players...
