FFXIV MMO... Wont have EXP points or levelling!

Wow... talk about breaking the mould...

 

Their aren't many MMOs out there that dont use levelling or EXP that I can think of, at least in the last 5 years

 

(social mmos dont count) 

 

Though Ultima online is mentioned. 

 

**quote**

 

 Komoto hinted at the way character advancement might work when he discussed the game's job system. Considered a strength of Square Enix's last MMO, FFXI - which allows players to combine character classes, and expand them with sub-jobs - it will return, but in a new form based around the weapons and equipment players choose to use.

"We believe the main factor behind Final Fantasy XI's lasting appeal is the job system," said Komoto. "However, the system will become something completely different. The focus here will be on weapons. Your weapon will determine how you play. Your weapon will determine how you fight.

"We want to afford players enough variety to choose a different way to play on any given day. If they could practice one skill one day, they could work on another one the next," he added. This seems to suggest a skill-based advancement system, similar to Ultima Online's.

 

 "You can trust that we plan to create a world of new possibilities that redefine the MMO. I hope you're looking forward to everything we have in store," Komoto concluded.

Guess what... and mine lol

 

Looks incredibly detailed, mind-blowing graphics, real next-gen, with innovative gameplay hopefully and being able to sit back with a controller and play will be great.

 

Judging on the last FF mmo numbers wise, we should have a world to play in with a few hundred thousand others lol

FF topped out at about 500,000 players so that not to bad for a MMO, must have made money on it or they would not make another. Could not get in to the first but then i dint pick it up till it was a few years old, and the best time to get in to a new MMO is when it comes out. I will give it a look but i will get it on my PC, still going to have to be good to pull me away from WOW. Next MMO that i am really looking forward to is KOTOR which looks amazing right now.

I'll reserve judgment on this game until I actually see some gameplay.

 

From what I have heard up until now sounds positive. I do honestly wished they went with Ivalice though. Oh well.....

You know the interesting thing is...
The trailer on PS Store for FFXIV?
Its all CG.
But it actually has gameplay parts put into the trailer - the graphics are so advanced its not easy to tell the difference between the CG and in-game parts of the trailer.

I would guess the gameplay elements would be when they are fighting on the boat.

 

Since I played as a TaruTaru before it's time I either moved to a Hume or something else this time around. I never really played as a Melee based character, I was either a Summoner, Black Mage or White Mage. All good jobs but you never got picked first for melee jobs, curse those short arms you peskey TaruTaru's! :D

I was moulded into the ultimate fighting machine by a friend who seemingly had billions of awesome weapons / armours to give me at each level of my Monk...

MMO's are possibly the most boring games ever.

Some find FPS, Adventure, RPG games boring as well.

 

It's all down to personal taste to be honest.

Yep i just had to remind people that games that revolve around killing the same monsters for hours upon end doing quests that require killing certain monsters to pick up certain loot over and over again should not be considered fun.


MMO's are the perfect game for people that don't go outside.

 

Scorpion im one of the few people that loves his JRPG's not one of these people that loves Western games which are considered RPG's when in reality they are just really long action games.

*I have no idea that you like FPS', just from experience the only people who don't like MMO's or RPG's are generally FPS' fans*
