    Even though I'm probably not gonna be playing this again, because it's a massive time sink, I am super happy that FFXIV continues to go strong in the MMO realm compared to how I'm seeing WoW, the other MMO I played extensively, spiral the drain in both gameplay and story.

    I never really paid attention to the mmo space until I started playing ffxiv during early stormblood, and everything going on with wow has been weird to watch as a newcomer and outsider, especially because nearly any discussion I see of ffxiv's sucesses or failures are framed via comparisons to this other game I've never played

    Shara would’ve been a neat inspiration instead, being that her game predates Fran’s. But one has to accept that XII is more popular, I guess.

    going with that outfit gives it a real korean free to play MMO vibe
    seems like there's no male viera either? which I guess is in keeping with past decisions about them but they made male not-mithra so vOv

    I imagine there will be male viera. They mention them in the latest alliance raid update so it'd be odd not to include them. Especially with how they made male catboys and female roes. It is weird that they haven't shown anything yet.

    I'm pretty confident that if Fran hadn't been in the last patch we wouldn't have had an in game preview of Viera at this event.

    My guess is that the male Viera model isn't as close to finished since it didn't get expedited to be available for 4.5.

    Anyway, using Fran's outfit for the starter gear is sensible because it's recognizable and people would want it for glams anyway. Going to make a lot of people that aren't switching to Viera sad though, I'd imagine. If that is the case of course.

    Oh also @Whippy if we haven't cracked 100 pages by the time shadowbringers drops I would like to start a new thread early with the same poll+viera cause I'm honestly curious how the results will change.

    Probably leave off the joke option this time though.

    how do servers work in this game, does it matter much where you create your character? if so, where all are the various SE folk playing?

    the thing that makes me suspect we may not get male viera is they didn't even show any concept art of them, not even at the following panel focused on character art

    they were mentioning how player races are a lot of work and that they had to change how they program helms to accommodate viera ears so i wouldn't be surprised to find out that as the schedule got finalized they determined male viera was what they were gonna cut

    Penny Arcade guild is on Sargatanas. I'm not in it anymore though so idk what the state of it is at present.

    The new xpac is introducing a bunch of crossworld functionality so it won't matter much once that goes in. Everything will be split up by data center then.

    I think they're specifically moving the one problem population world, Balmung I think, onto the new data center with a bunch of empty servers. Which is pretty funny.

    The Sargatanas FC is still pretty active. Applying to join the FC is a bit archaic though. You need to either look up somebody on the player search menu or find them in the world. So find somebody with a <GHOST> tag. If you right-click their name you can choose to view their Free Company profile and there should be an option to apply there. Just mention that you're from the forums or whatever and you should get in as soon as an officer checks applications.

    I should probably spend the money to server transfer so I can play with you folks. Ultros is active but I don't think anyone here plays on that server's data center.

    Some servers are changing data center when SB hits so you maybe won't have too.

    It still feels weird to get hyped for an MMO's plot, but the extended trailer that came out today is getting me all excited to see how we're going to go from where the story is now to the events of the cinematic.

    everybody will get a free tranfer when the data center shuffle happens, so you might want to hold out for that

    I have a first name and character design I like by recreating my FF11 character, but the surname is really tripping me up. It's cool you get a name and surname, that fixes a lot of the problems of names always being taken in online games, but since no other game ever has surnames my surname-picking character creation brain muscles are totally undeveloped, unlike my very strong flexy-flex first name muscles that I exercise a lot.

    I can't wait to finally have a gunblade. MCH came out and I was like "finally!" but no

    and by then I'll have enough sub time to have Squall's outfit, and I think you get his gunblade if you pre-order, or something? I'm gonna do that too, obviously

    also, I sent in an application for GHOST (as Tsunn Dere)! I want to play with the people I pretend to know on the internet!

    Yes - mount, fran minion, and gunblade is from collector's edition (There will probably be a cheaper digital version that has them)
    XP Earring + gremlin minion is from preordering
