  1. Planning on getting this for switch but I have a bunch of questions; I would need to restart and I want to know a head of time what I’m getting back in to. 1. I read that if have 5.0 I can skip the 1-4.0 story at character creation, is that true? That still means you start at level 1 and need to get up to 110 still though, right? 2. What’s the meta for jobs right now? The first class I focus on I really want to get the most use of my time, so is there any job that is good at the most events? 3. I see on YouTube people fighting this giant gold octopus, and a black dragon - what are they? I think they drop weapon skins or something from what I can tell? Anyway, would love to know so I can get back into the game - thanks all.
  2. http://hiroba.dqx.jp/sc/public/charamoveguide#flow Had some free time and I was looking to come back to the game; have an account issue and need to transfer before I get serious. From what I can tell I need to.. 1. Have all the same content registered on both accounts In this case I have the Wii (v1) and PC (v1 + v2), so I will have to re-buy both for the new account. However I also have the 3DS version so Im not sure what Im supposed to do about that? Not sure If I have to rebuy (unless I want to play that again that is) 2. Have a spare character on each account 3. Have a security token enabled (and the info required to do it) on each account *or digital iOS token My issue is that when I registered on the Wii I used a random name, security question, and birthday. I know the birthday, and have access to the registered name and address but I want to transfer my character to an account with a name, address, and security question I will remember in a emergency. Does anyone know if they will ask for the security question during the transfer?? I have a hard time putting tons of hours into a game if I don't feel like I'm in control of the account fully. In the mean time I will be resubscribing on the 3DS so I can clear up from 2.1 to 3.5 / max Warrior and Mage.
  3. I just came in here again because I saw ny name pop up; he's right I really don't care. It's not exactly "clutter", there's long-winded points on both sides but we were debateing SEs MMO's in a time where solid information is lacking in both. And even if I disagree with Alex's methods occasionally, he is pushing for DQX localization pretty hard, he's entitled to his own opinions and I don't think it hurt anything having all that core information out there. Plus it was really high tension before fanfest, so there was that >.>
  4. I didn't say that though, "They are taking money from DQX to put into FFXIV"; in fact I actually agree with you - they take profits from FFXIV and DQX to fund their other games, it's been company policy since FFXI lol. Not to say I think that is smart, but, it creates a large buffer for development costs and as you said yourself, look at all the games we have right now because of it. There's no point even arguing, we all love DQX, and some of us love/like/tolerate FFXIV, but we all love SE's concepts; at the end of the day we all hope they both get the treatment they deserve because lets face it, we still live in a FPSMOBAPLATFORMSIMAR for iOS world at the moment lol. Also when I said raids or other events I was thinking more like dynamis (w/ relic equivalents) or something like that from FFXI, not like WoW raids. Doesn't mean I'm right though; I didn't miss them in 1.0 or 2.0, it's probably more to do with the change in difficulty across the board. *p.s. If 4.0 doesn't change the FFXIV formula we will for sure see at least up to a 100k active player loss, no question. Like next year at this time instead of 500k we could be anywhere from 300-400k+. They would have to be so, so stupid at this point though. I agree about side quests @tribalether, they are much better in DQX. And this is from someone who loves the story in Final Fantasy's games; DQX just feels like an actual main series game level quality story- all the way through.
  5. @Alexander making a long winded, conjecture filled post doesn't make it true. It makes you a liar. You went from saying you've used RebornBuddy to saying you've never used THAT program; but ones you programmed yourself ( o really ? ?); because you couldn't purchase a key to verify. More than that your argument is others don't know how to use a limited porgram properly? When no one else can back up the claims (or has even tried to) that you just made about bots? YOU SOURCE AND RESOURCE ALL THE MATIERIAL YOURSELF? That statement is the biggest lie in the entire post - you flat out deny LuckBancho and any credible documents sourced for both FFXIV population, and development progress; but claim you alone have the technical skills to figure out the true statistics with unnamed methods? Completely delusional. I recoded my entire router to run a shifting VPN function so I can play DQX anywhere in my house, at anytime. Scrips, botnets, you're using literal 2$ words to describe basic skills picked up from any forum - don't even have to go to school these days - its not threatening. You didn't quit 3 'months' ago - you've changed the line from a year, to six months, to now three. No, literally, nothing you've said is backed up. Having a script that teleports and reposts hunts or LS chat is not the same as farming endgame or relevant content with complex, fully timed (in combination with complex dungeon mechanics) skills/positionals; maintained properly, at not only bellow, or standard damage, but as good as the best players- neither is it the same as bottling all classes to max level. You make claim after claim, with no evidence, and no purpose other than to make the game look bad for what - your own ego? Get real man. *you either mentioned the same things I did, or things standard to MMO's when actually relevant to the topic; use those skills to clone me some Gen VII Pokémon next month please Ok, so I'm done addressing Alex. *I came back in to EDIT this after I saw some posts change, which is now going to make me a hypocrite for calling out long winded posters, but now Im coming back to make this; just thought it was worth mentioning for the 10th time to people who have never actually played the game... but P.S. All DQX patches are literally copy/paste, it's just relative to a different games content format, so that's kind of a joke. New story > New crafting > One new token boss > 1 event adjustment or extra award (they change tower, pyramid, royal lab; the only endgame events btw)>New armor/weapons(tied into crafting)>sometimes a new map>QoL>Minigames/ Random nonsense Is that really different from two dungeons>new raid(8/24)>new weapons/armor>>new story>new crafting>new primal>QoL adjustments>housing adjustments>mini games/ random nonsense The endgame in DQX is literally Korean Runescape, with a JRPG story (or GW2 for that matter). All stats are seemingly irrelevant down to a 10-20% marginal efficiency boost (which still costs/requires unreasonable time unlike the rest of the gameplay) - you farm the same bosses 100's of times for accessories to fuse together for +1's - you do this because it's the only content. All endgame events besides pyramid give you these same boss accessories to be fused. The glamour system is archaic, and after they fixed most of the base problems with FFXIVs, it's pretty glaring. Not having a raid, or significant/relevant large player event has hurt DQX in the long run. Eight man fights are more like two separate four man fights in DQX. The game isn't built for it, and most endgame relevant coin bosses can be farmed without effort in even baseline gear. I also hate tomes, but if you're not capping them without trying already, then you're for one thing - not really playing the game much, and second - probably don't enjoy it much anymore/at all to begin with. EQ, EQ2, and WoW all had currency relative to the system. Can you, like others who I've talked with who hate tomes actually describe what you think should be done differently? Like in all honestly, I'd say you can't. What we need is horizontal progression and more -game events; not taking tomes from casuals If it comes here, I will swap like I previously mentioned, but it's mostly because it's a newly translated DQ game.. After I clear the story, if expansion number 3 doesn't fix the game, I will be back in FFXIV for Stormblood - which is going to be one of the greatest MMO expansion releases of all time. DQX is top 10 games, but to me FFXIV will always be top 5; it feels like EQ2 done right.
  6. Thank you Tangerine; Alex, unless you have proof it's not true. You've already said you aren't current in FFXIV so you're not testing anything relevant bots or otherwise. And RebornBuddy is trash; can't do anything complex or relevant besides gathering and faceroll lowbie content -probably utilized in account resale to train up story completed level 50 base package accounts. Nobody is botting anything to max level via fates in our actual playerbase, again a lot of what you're saying is conjecture meant to be defer the conversation from any real definitive information about the game. We do have a lot of Gold Saucer bots just like DQX casino bots though, that is true. But just like Tangerine said a lot of the punishments given to people by GMs are swift. Alex the funny thing is you going after FFXIV repeatedly, unprovoked - in many unrelated threads. We have other people here besides me who play both, and look at the things you say thinking "Well that's just not true."
  7. it's worth mentioning there are only two reasons why DQX had AI, 1. JP only population = smaller size, 2. They wanted it to feel like a tradition DQ game with the ability to play solo. With more than 2.5x the population and differently formatted content, it's more efficient to play with others in FFXIV And again, the bots you're mentioning don't do relevant content/ or even nearly current - And they do not perform full Heavensward rotations during ANY dungeons lol, especially not for dragoon. Level 50 rotations for those classes in low mechanic dungeons, maybe. Most of what you're saying is conjecture though. And are we really debateing bots? I know you've never played DQX to see them, but they can farm nearly 100% of content, especially if it comes down to raw RNG. This includes progression, economy influencing, or quest content.
  8. I'm also dropping whatever I'm doing if DQX gets localized; including FFXIV for at least like 2 patches. The story alone is JRPG nirvana lol. I can't wait to be able to read all the pyramid text too, it's in my top 5 for endgame events. EDIT: No dude I mean it's genuinely hard, like think about any of the 50+ HM' dungeons sync'd or 50-60 dungeons with AI's - making them smart enough to not die, with little support, but slow enough so that you cannot out farm a party in efficiency. Plus the way they coded pets is different than companions; they cannot code squadrons like pets, and to code them as companions but still bring them into a dungeon with you requires a minor engine overhaul. It's not bad practice or lazy; bots are pretty bad in comparison to real player speeds; they also don't work for new dungeons or even the last batch most of the time. I'd say about 1/4 as good as if you were with others, only advantage being it's automatic. Worth being banned? Hell no lol. But yeah they can, and are. Yoshi's team is BIS.
  9. Well actually, it is incredible hard to program AI, especially to be more effiecent then the current gen of bots. They should know, DQX has the best party AI in the business. That said, no Squadron members will not be able to be used in party until next year. FFXIV 4.0 trailer and content reveal at fanfest was MASSIVE to say the least, and it's just the outline; there are two more Fan Fests before the expansion release, where even more details will be given of DIFFERENT and NEW content on top of what we just had announced. Thank you Harftfield and MKVarana, sincerely, for the only relevant information being thrown around currently.
  10. You could mention how it's mainly a horizontal progression game, and that every class has tons and tons of min-maxing (+/-) for any fight, event, and situation you can think of. Not to mention an unlimited combination of overarching skill builds (until you max every class that is), plus the fact that they WANT you to max and play every class. But most of all, I guess that you can do all of that in a timely fashion without spending 12 hours a day.
  11. Just like Trump and his supporters, some people will not concede to statistical information. :\

      ...it might be higher).


      Generally only 60% of registered whites vote, 8~10% of blacks, 30% of hispanics, and I think 40% of asians, but I'm not sure on asian americans, vote, who are registered.


      So it's hard to say really what the underlying vote is.

    3. ignasia


      Sometimes you have huge swaths of +10~20 of the registered populace coming out to vote that normally don't. I don't have any stats on that, so I can't say for sure which presidents. I know Blacks came out overwhelmingly for Bill Clinton, highest % of registered, until Obama.

    4. ignasia


      At least in modern times. Blacks were more active in the 30's to the 60's, then participation dies in the 70's until Clinton.

  12. Judging by the reactions to each of our posts I'd say it's plain and simple who provided clear, and structured evidence for their argument. A list of games you might have installed isn't proof, it isn't descriptive experience. I'll give you the F2P titles, but you've already said on the record your level of experience with FFXI as being minimal to none, and proved how much you ACTUALLY know about FFXIV based on conversational quotes alone; I'm still calling BS on guild claims, world firsts, and every other accolade you just listed. You've been saying for years that you played FFXIV and any other MMO you might have tried solo, and that you always enjoyed them better playing solo; especially with no forced grouping anywhere. Statements just like this are in your post history throughout the DQX forum. Now when someone calls you out on paradoxical situations, you try and act like you've been an MMO world tier player your whole life -nonstop. Interesting. Moreover you started by saying you had never played MOST of the games you just listed, which neither I or anyone else here have forgotten. I won't sit around and listen to you lie, and then try to build onto the lie over time, it's genuiely boring, sociopathic behavior. I'm glad you're spending time posting elsewhere, and I hope you further the campaign. I have no need to argue with you, I actually accomplished providing data that proved everything I said about FFXIV, and it's relation to DQX was true; people have seen that and agreed. Judging from your time deactivated, I'd say I wasn't the one shitposting or wasting people's time. EDIT: And more than all of this, my closing statement is don't listen to ANYONE who doesn't provide real, statistical information. Shouting loud, emotional conjecture doesn't convince anyone you're right - bad mouthing people, developers; anything without evidence clearly descriptive of the offenders own behavior, and documented actions - makes you look uneducated, lazy, and foolish. I don't believe you're winning any battles of logic - I haven't seen one chart, one spread sheet, or one graph about population density over time from YOU; so.
  13. edit: pm sent to people involved for some sort of resolution
  14. edit: I hope launch starts at 60-65 level cap at least, and even though it's impossible - with the QoL from 3.0-
  15. I just want my initial statement on FFXIV, DQX; with the Lucky Bancho link. I don't care about the argument either, since it was mostly Alex insulting me; doesn't usually get your point across. Or are you defending him because his opinion validates your perspective ? P.S. If that all rustles your jimmies that bad, woah, gl, because there's a million people like that on the net Edit: leaving the post to say that people were unnecessarily caught in the cross-fire, and that everything but the first two sentences was out of confusion about who was talking to who. Appologies to those involved.
  16. You're genuinely deluded, you can take it to PM I mean hell you can call me in real life. You've already proven how much you actually know about MMO's, especially from today, and beyond that repeated back nearly everything I said - to me. Clone game is strong. So you're telling me people bought tickets to fan fest, a room at a hotel to stay at, food/drinks, and a plane ticket just for the items already being given away from the 30$ stream? Or do you mean at the chance there might be something excluded -that someone would be that crazy to spend all that money extra, if they didn't play and give a damn about the game. ARE YOU smoking crack? A couple dead servers, brah we have 64 in total; aside from 10 or so every one is healthy beyond belief. Are you hanging in Idyl on anything 40 most pop and above? I'm at 34, Lamia, and I see hundreds. Have you seen WoW today ? Most of theirs even with CRZ are a ghost town. I saw a few articles that said they had 10.1 m and climbing subs again, guess what, it was debunked by their own staff and development. They didn't know who said those numbers, but were definitely not accurate. Better, but hurting. Like all MMO's. FFXIV still being second most subbed internationally (outside of Lineage KR) and looking beautiful everyday. Oh yeah, that data backed up by other popular census sites that run the same calculated formula - a formula that unbiased, checks every active character in the game but bots? Are you intentionally playing dumb? And Brad Mcquiad, Jesus I've talked at length about Vanguard and everything it could have been. Clearly you've never spoken to anyone else about it, or anyone who stayed on until the end. It needed 9. More. Months. Bad fps? Structural issues from coding, not outclassed hardware specifications. You play games? You make games? (Edit: calling bullshit on the guild claims, and beyond all that nonsense you'd know the shipped game was slapped together and nothing like previous builds. His intended design, and different alpha progression show this. In the games sunset days it wasn't even really that bad, though it did have glaring problems that remained forever unfixed. I don't know if you even played it really. ) BUILD UP REAL EXPERIENCE, ARE YOU FOR REAL ? You didn't play 99% of the games mentioned here and are casual with an intentionally skewed perspective on FFXIV. No, but take a couple days to think on that response - Ill wait. Edit: Also yeah, obviously being randomly accosted by a stranger isn't needed. He's lying about a game I enjoy; said it wasn't true, he said I lied. When I provided data proving what I said was true, he just got louder with nothing to back it up. Say what you want. P.s you used information from Wikipedia, then when I called you out on it pretended like you didn't and said Wiki wasn't credible ? ? My mind is blown, and it's not from fire bud I'll tell you that much b.
  17. It's not Actually dwindling though, you very clearly didn't even read the posts I included or their links - in fact it's bigger than ever! FANFEST tickets sold in literally 8 minutes, I don't have to keep going on about it - you waited days to even passively attempt to use your personal brand of conjecture to try and prove some great point, sweet. I played FFXI JP launch and US, played it all the way until the newest expansion RoV. (EDIT: 5:20 You do realize that WoW came out shortly after that US launch, and permanently owned the MMO genre) I'm not $#!& posting, you haven't done or seen any of the things we are talking about, and didn't even investigate the data I provided. Am I the one $#!& posting? I am helping with the real campaign, which is figuring out a way to organize all our names and actual categorized information about a place for us to collect as fans. Also P.S. I was excited, and bought DQX at launch specifically because of how I hoped it would be FFXI/Everquest the second coming and it was, at LAUNCH! Step off brah, it's ridiculous. It's still not going to fly with people who are not interested in the genre (Dragon Quest) or old school players due to how it changed following 2.0. Which you'd know... if you were there. And Braid Mcquaids last MMO failed because it got pushed out literally 9 months early... which you'd know if you were there.
  18. I didn't edit anything more than my grammatical mistakes dude, it was all plainly there. I'm not even going to comment on that last post Alex, it's not even an arguememt youre not basing it on anything. It's not dwindling in Japan, YOU can look at the numbers. MMO population stat flow is very specific, it follows a trend, every game has one, I've included them below.. http://www.ffxiah.com/databaseNote current population 2x and 3x boxes, and most accounts have a few active characters. current experts break this down to around 40k subs at most. http://luckybancho.ldblog.jpThis is a breakdown of FFXIVs current sub flow, and the number of Mogststion purchases by character during specific campaigns and census. You have to remember that FFXI was a niche game played by very few in MMO world, besides its longtime subs the only revue it saw was world transfers and box purchases; FFXIV has that and gender change, mounts, and a million other non game effecting micro transactions. You're obviously not digging much harder than Wikipedia, I can really look for the Square Enix Quartly breakdowns if you want.
  19. No it doesn't, its long since surpassed FFXI too; all of this is old easily obtainable information that has been around for years, and can be grabbed from archives all over google, Reddit, and Bluegatr. Not only has it long since surpassed FFXI has there all time most profitable game, but it dug them out of the 400m dollar FFXIV 1.0 hole AS WELL. I'm not saying I won't fight for this game, I'm saying don't stomp on another of SEs products to try and get it done. Echo chambers can be positive, and negative.
  20. That's not actually supported by real numbers, according to SE company reports FFXIV is their most lucrative product/ongoing venture, including overhead and development costs; it's quite literally what keeps them afloat. You can make assumptions based on technological differences and say "that must be cheaper", but it's not how that works. ROI is significantly more expensive both short and long term when it's not compatible, and fluid coding; not based on preserved relative value. See FFXI for what that all turns into.
  21. I said XIV has updates every 3 months o.o I literally said it right there, I'm saying it's the MOST UPDATED game you can't argue that lol, it's a fact. DQX gets updated around every 6 months. Again, I'm not making this up. Also I'm talking about competitive games, SorRY EQ2 is dead in the water like EQ1 living off of one or two servers, and a time-progression server (14 literal 0 pop doubt count). Daybreak is only alive because of 3 games and the people who multibox lol.
  22. Listen the joke is SE has the actual numbers, nothing Alex has said is true, and anyone who plays both of these games knows how they function; with or without me going on about this. I mean the second you say "well I haven't played it" your opinion is invalidated, to a high degree. EDIT: I'm laughing going back to read the "and it's obvious the updates are bigger because it costs less" which made me sad the updates are genuiely small on DQX because I love it too, and actually play it. Also noticed nobody mention "Wii Limitations" when talking about this game, which further distances people here a being aware of current gen-MMO life.
  23. There is no MMO on the market that updates sooner than every 6 months, and even then it's usually QoL with updates only contain tin major content every 1 - 2 years . Every even patch 3 month cycle on FFXIV is two dungeons, a Savage and normal raid, crafter prog, story, glamour, ex primals and OoL updates. Every Odd patch we get 24 man raids, crafter prog, story, ex primals, and horizontal content. You're the one who is high, I'm telling you it's literally considered the industry standard. P.S. Don't give a chick or a slime what you follow, I play both - Savage prog on one, and I've played endgame at many different patches in DQX lol. I've played a lot of Korean MMOs, including Mabinogi which did a catch up patch lifestyle and no it wouldn't work for this game, it's different. Also played Lineage, ArchAge, and many others.
  24. They have said they would consider localizing it three other major times, to my knowledge. But I digress, I think they have the ability to consider all things. I do have experience in the MMO industry, as well as playing them. I included a list of statements from Yoshi P about what it takes specifically for SE during some of their movements. It is extremely complicated.
