The thing that makes me sad about FFXIV ARR is

#1potatochobitPosted 3/7/2013 12:16:51 AM
how the fans really are not fans at all
you know, soon as the beta comes up they come here to argue and complain
any negative posts about the game - they post negative remarks in it and defend the game
give me free beta pass, or whatever.
how is the gameplay, they ask.
they make their 'cute' little FAQs
I love this game! and they all do a group hug

but where are they now?
that's right, they are not here
already jumped ship
server goes offline a few days, they all scatter like fleas jumping off a wet dog

that's fine
time is money
people want to spend their free time efficiently, I understand that

but you see, a real man has something known as 'resolution'
that shows his 'determination'
I am a king and my path is a 'king's path' because I choose it to be

this game is crap and I acknowledge it is crap but I am here to help make it better
that is what a real fan is

That's every MMO to an extent.

Once the player base dies there's nothing left to really do. SE are lucky they have the resources to go "Oops... can we try that again? We'll do better this time, pinky promise!"

I'm starting to think the entire market may have been over estimated due to the success of WoW. Clearly it doesn't help when you release total crap but yea.

Edit: I know your specifically talking about the beta but almost the same thing tends to happen once an MMO is launched.

I'd imagine that the people in beta would be using the official beta forums to talk with other people in beta. I'm sure once open beta hits there will be alot more buzz.

^this no point in talking about the game outside of the beta forums. NDA and all.

they must've really tied down the testers man. It's one of the first beta I cannot find much leaks/streams and such. Gonna be a boring 3 months......

Or maybe I'll get a lucky invite.

SE are pretty strict. Somebody was streaming alpha and SE banned their account within 10 minutes. A lot of people in beta are legacy members that have made some good progress in the game and don't want their accounts to get banned from ARR.

In the beta for the last version, somebody was able to stream with an overlay on the screen over their character's name.
