Final Fantasy XIV
is an MMO.
The battle and job systems will be different than the one previously used in Final Fantasy XI, which utilized experience points. Character races and monsters will resemble those found in Final Fantasy XI to allow players to create avatars similar to ones created in Final Fantasy XI. Group play has been de-emphasized, and now solo and group play have been balanced. Weapon use will alter "character development".
May all the gods in the universe help me - I read that article (which, truth be told, I think I'd already come across before and just forgot.) I am going to need a 12-step program soon.
Hopefully, the economy they set up will be regulated in such a way as to eliminate gold farmers, crafting cheaters, and bots that people set up to fish and craft, etc. Either that, or cheating will be rampant and I will hear about it before I decide to play, and then I will be OUT! I hope.
Well, knowing SE they will come down hard on cheaters, but also create the perfect breeding ground for RMT by making Gil too difficult to acquire....I'm hoping that this is not the case, but you know....
If any of you end up playing we MUST be in the same guild or equivalent!
