    I just want to bring to everyone's attention the lack of booty on character models. This is an injustice in my book.

    Winter is indeed coming...

    I had not noticed until you said something. Now I am sad. :(

    So we get stiff once in a while. So we have a little fun. What’s wrong with that? This is a free country, isn’t it? I can take my panda any place I want to. And if I wanna buy it a drink, that’s my business.

    Fused With Infinity. After WoW, that name needs to be reclaimed for the good of the community.

    Edit: Partially Fused with Infinity, if it will fit, but it might run up against max character limits.

    It's sometime soon after the 8th. The 8th is just a live letter. The 1st will be the benchmark with character generator.

    Hey, internet is working. Keeping this kinda short though. A lot of the folks I am bringing like the WANG name but honestly i don't think they care that much. Whatever is fine as long as its not really lame (dick jokes are never lame lol)

    I like the We Are Nice Guys with the NICE guild tag myself.

    Also, I finally ran the benchmark on my system... 4727 on High, 4975 on Max, Full screen 1280X1024 (It's a 7 year old monitor). I never messed with the settings at all. It kinda chugged in cities with lots of people around, but the dungeons were always smooth as silk. Guess I'll bump it up to max next go round and get better performance?

    Personally, I like We Are Nice Guys (NICE). It sends a good message*, and the whole wang thing is so cleverly hidden that it completely wooshes unless you are looking for it.

    Thanks! I guess that gives me a few weeks to get my life in order before I disappear into Eorzea entirely.

    At this point on the name thing I quite frankly don't care too much. I've personal naming schemes I really enjoy, but I'm pretty sure its safe to assume I would be the only one to enjoy a Irish, Gaelic, Celtic reference type of name. I'd love it if we could name the FC Fragarach after the famous sword Manannan mac Lir uses and passes on to Lugh. Fragarach means The Answer. I highly doubt anyone here would agree to this type of name, and meh that's why I don't really try to push for this name or that name type of stuff. All I do ask naming wise is if it can have the ability to be twisted halfway serious or silly, kind of you know like Shakespearean nonsense lol. Or hell an old saying like Vent you Spleen! But yea, I guess please nothing over the top silly that we'll be regreting 4 months from now. Or current pop culture references, but that's more of a scruple on my part and can be ignored.

    I care more at this point at figuring out in a somewhat short order what the new name will be, so I can scrap the enjin site I made and remake a new one. I'm really happy I decided not to throw money into the wang one last night. I just can't wait to get into the game, make the FC and get this baby rolling!

    It seems the only objection is to WANG, so NICE is a good solution.

    I would think that it would not run very well, if at all.

    Is this just you saying "Integrated graphics?!?! Ewwwwwww!" or do you have some knowledge of the chips, because the new Haswell GPUs are actually pretty beefy for what they are. I'm looking for someone with actual experience or a benchmark link, not uninformed personal opinions.

    There is an official benchmark you can give a try

    http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/benchmark/

    Outside of that though I don't personally have any experience with that setup. But at least the benchmark might give you a general idea.

    I don't have the system yet. It's a future purchase. I'm waiting for the new MacBook Pro announcements before I make any decisions. I'm currently playing beta on the PS3 and I'll move to the PS4 when that version releases. This is just a "Will it play well enough that I can do some grinding/crafting while I'm at the coffee shop". I don't plan on raiding on it.

    Ah gotcha, unfortunately I don't have a Macbook or know much about bootcamping (outside of what it is) so I can't help much :(

    FWIW I'm running it perfectly acceptably on a Rev H (2010 model) MBP in bootcamp on a win7 64bit partition with few issues

    edit: f course, since it's a completely different set of specs with a completely new chipset it's not worth much

    Why don't we just say, G&T will make the Linkshell, SE++ can make the Free Company. They can name it what they want, we can name the LS what we want.

    Everyone can play in one larger pool of players which benefits everyone.

    Just like the server name, the FC name and the LS name are far less important than playing with more people and having a better community. SE++ and G&T certainly have different cultures here; but in-game we can all get along.

    Another vote for not caring what the FC name is. Kind of partial to just giving it to SE++ to decide, since they apparently are being gentlemanly and rolling with us now.

  • Sionnach RuaSionnach Rua FFXIV: Sionnach RuaRegistered User regular
    If that's the route, I'd prefer them to pick the name and then Greg and I can make the FC with that chosen name, and continue along with all the planning and admin stuff we were working on

    How are they handling the ones that existed before, did they just wipe all the companies, leaving the characters only?

    Yup everything from 1.0 was wiped except the characters. I don't even know if Free Companies existed in 1.0 though I think it was only Linkshells.

    1.0 was kind of a mess :(

    My linkshells still existed, though

    That actually sounds pretty cool, but I understand that not everyone shares an appreciation of Gaelic.

    I mean, "Antwort" doesn't sound nearly as cool... Sometimes I regret my choice of German in college.

    So this might be an early/unanswerable question considering PVP seems to be a bit of a question mark at this point. But I generally try to PVP some and like to be somewhat competitive (to the point you win at least once in while to keep things fun).

    I would be starting fresh on Sarg - no Legacy character. I don't really care about not having money or other players being ahead PVE-wise, especially considering the nice PA group we'll have. But how far behind would I be PVP-wise? A slight disadvantage (lessened by grouping with you all) or not even in the same league? In other words, negligible difference once leveled up or would it be like starting a new WoW character on a long established server (ie FAR behind)?

    Like I said, may be unanswerable, but I'd appreciate some thoughts - I'm afraid the one thing that could turn me off to the game would be a feeling of complete PVP-ineptness (due to starting behind on a Legacy server; if it's due to my inherent lack of skill, that's a-okay).

    mmm, I have no clue so can't comment or help you there. During phase 3 I only cared about getting the chocobo. But I'll say I'd be happy to join for pvp once game hits =D. Though honestly I don't remember seeing any kind of pvp implemented at the time; that could be me just being blind though

    There's not a lot known about PvP at this point, since it's not in and not a lot is known, but afaik it's a top level thing anyway. It's not like you're gonna get ganked WoW PvP server style.

    From what Yoshi-P has said, I gather the PVP system will be running more or less on a different system from PvE

    This combined with the fact that there was never that much of a top level gear advantage under the old system to begin with and opening up the Materia system to make combines easier for everyone and multiple-melded gear easier to achieve, my gut says the answer is "negligible or even no difference"

    "Do not run; we are your friends."

    So what's the deal with fullscreen and alt-tabbing now? Does the game still crash? Or did Square-Enix finally figure that out?

    Wondering so that I can set the benchmark mode appropriately.

    1920x1080 BW High - 2879
    1920x1080 FS High - 3083

    Not too much difference in the scores; 7%. Probably not worth worrying about. I don't think the scores are too bad considering I bought this video card over 5 years ago.

    Re: the name, I was honestly just curious! I intend to be, at least for a while, in a FC with my friends, just also on Sargantanas, and with the appropriate linkshells to organize stuff.

    Honestly, since the main benefit of guilds has basically been easier communication, it'll be interesting to see how they try and make Free Companies matter in a world with linkshells.

    Via YoshiP at the E3 Q&A the open beta will probably end just a few days before the early start, so there really won't be much downtime at all.

    There was a rumor floating around that Phase 4 might only be a week long based on something Yoshi P said in a chat.
