Here's hoping they have better design sense and class sensibility in XIV. I really hate the fact that after all this time they still don't have a grasp of many of these jobs. I'm still scratching my head at some of the SMN additions (shitty BPs and a <2% MP conserve proc) and DRK faux pas ( 2 TP per elemental spell!? 1 TP per Dark magic). It seems like they're not really trying too much with XI anymore, which is sad considering it's legacy. It doesn't build confidence for XIV for sure.

Wow, what a difference a few weeks and a dynamic lighting overhaul can do.

I wouldn't be in too much of a rush to get into beta. The cap is being set at level 30, which is reachable within 3-4 days of playtime if they open the servers 24/7 like they plan to. Especially since were limited to the immediate areas around Limsa Lominsa, you will get bored well before retail. Right now current alpha testers are the only ones going into beta, but the plan was that once the new servers are stabilized with this population, more invites will be going out. Though at this time it is unlikely there will be an open beta, the vast majority of people who applied for beta should get invites eventually. Hell, alot of alpha testers who got invited were applicants for PS3 beta, and were told to participate in PC beta till then.

We had 10 servers open at the end of alpha with about 5k testers each, and they had indicated they wanted to expand it to 10k or more through the beta. Be patient and keep your eyes on your inbox, we just got notification that the beta client would be available soon, but no word yet on when we start. If they an get the client out this weekend, probably after the 4th.

Once we have permission from SE we will be having some content up on the site from the beta.

I also got an email from Amazon confirming this too. Anyway looks like the PS3 camp has to wait almost 6 months. That collector's edition looks hot.

Heh, well they did more than just speed up combat, they completely nixed the effect gauge and redid how stats allocate too. I love how much better the game looks with the new lighting. Seems they updated some textures too. I'm going to be cautiously optimistic because this is the first time SE has actually listened to player feedback and acted on it, instead of their legacy of silence and "deal with it" attitude.

I know that, Pat should know when i'm just fucking with him in the spirit of his editorial :) if not, i'm sorry :(

Anyway, the changes sound dandy - especially since Dio never got past Riverne - something to do then. Also for the record, I really have been trying to get online, but it took me almost 3 days to patch. Anyway we'll be on tonight if you wanna do anything Pat or anyone else. Arliman (me) and Summonerdio (Diobility).

How is "Anyone who doesn't get CoP done now is absurdly bad at the game." not a blanket statement? Your making a judgment call on someone's ability to play the game based on the lifting of level caps on a portion of the content available, when a greatest deal of the difficulty in CoP comes from being able to put together a cohesive and competent group. That's irrespective of skill and an entirely unfair assessment, and it's actually quite rude. You also know a fair chunk of the expansion requires you to run around in Al'Tieu, which is still hostile no matter what level. So, instead of getting butt-hurt and retaliating with things like "Don't talk to me about ignorance until you log back into the game." maybe you should read what I was trying to illustrate.

Wewt, congrats. I've got the xp, but I need to work on the merits first. Probably be next week since I just got in Transformers: War for Cybertron - and it's fucking awesome :)

Would be pretty dumb of SE to remove the caps on CoP stuff and then make it so that you need level 99 buddies to clear the way to the BC anyway.

You do realize we're talking about SE right?

Um.. yeah. That's about as ignorant blanket of a statement as they come. You've neglected to note that they've raised the mob level in Promyvion and I quote...

The upcoming version update will see the lifting of level restrictions in Chains of Promathia areas. In light of the planned level cap increase, the level and distribution of enemies in certain Promathia areas will also be adjusted to pose a worthy challenge to players level 75 and beyond. A journey of rediscovery to your favorite areas of old awaits!

You don't think SE would really make it easy on anyone do you?  Don't forget that quite a bit of CoP required you to be 75 anyway and its still a bitch. I've been trying to get a group to finish those fucking pots for a year and nobody wants to touch it. Not having instant access to a static does not make you bad at a game, i'm sure there's still quite a few people who will still have a problem finishing the expansion.

Jesus, can you flog this dead horse any further? Let's discuss the merits and missteps of FFVII while we're at it. Honestly, isn't there anything more interesting afoot? Nobody's discussed Harvest Moon in ages  :)

Wow... there's some stupid shit i've seen in my life, but this is up there. I'll be enjoying my iPhone 4 when it's delivered to the door of my air-conditioned home on June 24th. The kid even has a confirmed reserved unit, but he's still camping a week early. Instead of giving this kind of brain damaged behavior publicity, they should just lock him up for loitering and vagrancy ;p
