So I guess 'gamerescape' is still a thing that exists. Who knew? I don't want to give them traffic though because we should never forget what they did to the community.





Yep. That's it. My reaction, of course, was to invoke surprised Pikachu, as per usual.

I'm not really sure which is funnier;

"after emp+3 don't expect ***for 3 years"

or the fact that people are "upset?" that they told you exactly what they've been doing for the last 3 years, only again for another 3 years.

Nothing changed, they're just telling you that it's not changing.

I thought not expecting much at this point was a thing, since they closed the last story arch.
correlating this publication to people actually quitting.... maybe other factors are at hand? like, idk, new games, IRL's , or coming to the realization that this game is 20 yrs old?
atleast people should be happy SE has not pulled the plug on the game, as other companies would had already discarded the game to another peasant company, barely surviving on someone's home brewed "vanilla" server, or continuing the game as a region locked "JP Onry" game.
And kinda nice Se is actually planning to do something for the anniversary, even if it will take 3 years.

Other companies be like:
"player base dropped 15%? other game is more popular than us! PULL THE GD PLUG!"

For the people who play now, most of us will proly only quit if we die or the servers go dark, were all kinda lifers giving our 20~60 bucks a month for out multiple accounts. Small tweaks are all the remaining really need, (although more story would be appreciated and gear is always welcome) if we were going to move on it would have happened already. Although I'm sure a few walk away, but that rate has slowed a lot over that past few years. I know for one, think I log in out of habit most of the time. lol Heres to a 20th party and a new lv 1 wand costume!

Will FFXIAH still be around in 20 years ?

That to me is a more interesting question.

They need to either tell us what is coming in 3 years or not say we will get less in the meantime, 3 years is ridiculous.

I think underestimate how loyal the Japanese base for this game is. They seem to think that playing FFXI is a civic duty

And if anything mercs and bots on Asura will keep this game active for quite a while.

They ARE past due for it. Omen was winter 16, failnamis winter 17, "emp event" shouldve been winter 18 (but since dyanmis is such a garbage piece of ***, I guess they extended the wait on emp+3 to force dynamis appeal)

proving once again my favorite line, the only thing they're consistent at is being inconsistent.

People are reading what they are doing incorrect. They are doing content starting next Fiscal year (March 2019 for Japan) "LEADING" up to the 20th anniversary. They aren't doing a HD version or any of that ***. It will be for Empy +2/3...

If they had some sense the long term goal would release the game on ps4 or something, in reality it will be a mini expansion most likely.

Hey, you're being generous here... FF7 remake was publicly announced closer to four years ago (June 2015), and likely started production in 2014.

But yeah, gimme FFXI remastered before FF7: Episode 1 XD

That to me is a more interesting question.

I truly can't wait to neuro-link into FFXIAH in 2038 to see you asking when MNK is going to be great again.

If I keep asking if monk is great again...maybe it will come true !

Or if it doesn't I'll just claim monk is great and end it.

Also 20 years from now we will surely have the fabled FFXIAH trivia game I've heard about.

It's going to be great.


Edit: I'm kinda hoping for no particular reason at all they make ballista great again.

You can go around Jeuno punching people in the face for some reason...maybe just cause you can !

some of us are quitting because of this *** retarded Bott scripts and spellcast, because its the norm now and doing ambuscade over over and over again is so much *** fun this game is an adventure not a *** WoW clone, wait.... wow is more adventurous now then ffxi nvm i take back my word. honestly the game feels like a mobile mmo with the automated bott option

THATS why alot of us quit too.

Whoops. I didn't see another thread about this topic when I posted it and I thought I had looked well enough. Sorry about that. Feel free to merge them, lock this one, or just let it die. Carry on.
