    Especially if they deliver.

    Because of this news, I have a sliver of hope that not only SE is listening, but also stills cares about their games, fans, and legacy.

    If they do bring in “Fantasias” and the other changes mentioned, I will be more than glad to stay subbed to FFXI, and consider looking into their other games again.

    Thank you Square-Enix.
    This post encapsulates how I feel about this too! So thankful to see positive developments for this game!

    I am going to voice opposition:

    I am happy with myself. I am not going to change my race or appearance, that is what extra characters are for, but then again, I use my own name.

    Generally speaking, in the past I've spoken against this idea because I believe the game was designed from the beginning to encourage users to make careful decisions- not being able to change (or easily change at least) your character and name theoretically pushed players to put a lot more thought into their characters (and in many cases, I think it likely has). That said, even considering this opinion, 20 years is a long time particularly if you made selections you've grown to regret. I've also supported being able to at least change your hair (head) selection if not race since well, barbers are a thing and many games have this- in FFXIV, hair (and face paint) can be changed freely even though full recustomization requires a purchasable fantasia.

    Though in an ideal world, unlocking hairstyle changes would hopefully mean more options to choose from.

    My selection of Galka in XI was based on it being the least human-like race, and I am a hroth in FFXIV now for the same reason.

    Yeah, I’ve had the same concerns. I’d probably fully support a once per year paid option to change race

    Message got truncated: it also said:
    “I expect a lot of people wouldn’t like that though!

    Unless the base engine got an overhaul as to accommodate extra feats, don't expect any radical additions. Even FF14 actually starts to reach this limitation as well, for example with transitions between 5.x to 6.0 for armoire storage, promising extra slots, what they did instead is deleting belt category (in which personally still wish to have them got glamour displayed back from 1.x days) & then reallocate them into the rest of armoire categories, hence seemingly have them expanded slots. Also with old jobs having new skills, but what they did instead is trimming old redundant skills &/or combined them either into unified skill or tiered-upgraded skills as jobs got level ups.

    Honestly, the upcoming-promised race changes didn't really excite me as much since the option would be as is per base game, highly doubt they will add new ones.

    In short: PS2 engine limitations, deal with it. /kekw
