So where will FF battles systems go from here?

I mean, I just can't imagine a future of the series without the P shifts -____-, it just seems too great to lose

I think it'd be cool if they kept it, and brought classes back...like if you have three characters, one of them is a white mage, and the white mage can unlock like 5 roles : healer, synergist, white monk, etc. And some classes have common roles...

I dunno...any ideas?

Well, one could argue that FF XIII's battle system was heavily inspired by X-2's...I think bringing class exclusives would actually be a bridge between the two systems

Some form of Gambits (FFXII) + Paradigm Shifts (FXIII) would be perfect.

Well, I found the gambits system to be very...time-consuming let's say. I don't know about other people's opinions' though. And I feel like that's why the roles of FF XIII were so awesome

I'd like to see a numbered FF with Tactics gameplay where you can switch jobs on the go.

In battle.Like Dress Spheres.From warrior to WM to heal people, then back to warrior to wreck chaos.

You could change job in battle in FFXIV and it sucked so badly they had to remove it.

Ohnoes. I'm 25 and my 87th JRPG doesn't feel as epic as the first one I played when I was 12. Must be Toriyama's fault.

Maybe a combination of ADB from FFXII (Active Dimension Battle) and CSB (Command Synergy Battle) from FFXIII? Player run around the battlefield freely while stacking their commands.
