Queue times are still the same, rnging from 5 mins to 2 hours and people still asking for the removal of GC restrictions in PvP so queues wouldn't be based on GCs for quicker instance pops.
Where is PvP is Going Right Now?
I know we have been ignored for quite a bit. Ranks have been rendered useless due to the PvP equipment having restrictions lifted for most items. Queue times are still the same, rnging from 5 mins to 2 hours and people still asking for the removal of GC restrictions in PvP so queues wouldn't be based on GCs for quicker instance pops. RNG concepts, abandoned modes (Wolves-Den), useless pvp itms, useless crafting gear, useless materia that would just barely help in wolves den (inert in other modes), disregard for class roles and achievements (healers mostly), Uninteresting lore to everyone....-looks closer to you-
-breathes in- and finally lack of attention from SE regarding our plights of PvPs current position giving redundant answers such as "we're listening and plan to improve this mode, please look forward to it".
I won't get into detail about these problems as we all heard them before (probably not the crafting thing because no one ever gave a crap about them to begin with), but I would like to discuss where PvP will most likely fall into place in the future of this game. Frontlines was a fun addition at the start as it was new, then as time went on it became redundant and a bit....stupid, in some aspects. Secure was a success, and most players enjoyed it. Our answer for that was Sieze.... I heard people like this mode and I'll take their word on that. It's now been more than 6 months if I'm not mistaken and we've yet to see any differences. Complaining doesn't help, requesting changes don't help either when it came to PvP.
Too be honest, I don't know what to feel about this. When PvE was getting boring and began to wear on me I wanted to do something else, but I did't want to be removed from the game as I don't really like being removed from immersion by common causes like grinding. I still wanted to play the game, so I moved to PvP when it came out. When I first tried PvP Wolves Den I was excited, and had a blast, buuuuuut queue times. Still fun when we got in though. It was something to spend the time, and it was always new and interesting because people are unpredictable.
Frontlines was amazing and I spent alot time in it....but then the GC restrictions. Your skill is pretty much now reduced to a molecule among 24 players. unless you have a premade your pretty much leaving yourself in the hands of fate.
1v1v1 was never a happy concept, but we got over it (kinda) and just enjoyed the content for what it was. Sieze, we all know what happened. Its all old news and we've been just...well now I'm starting repeating myself lol.
I'd like to know your thoughts on SEs situation and what possibilities would happen. I don't want to hear about GC restrictions or queue times, because I could ask anyone "So what would happen after thats done? What new things can be introduced then?" and I expect a shrugged answer like "We'll think about when we get there". For me, I fear whats going to happen to PvP, because it really, really seems like its dying, slowly but surely. SE wouldn't even flinch if it did, fine, but your players are still playing your PvE content that you dish out like snails leaving alot of your playerbase eager for more as you promise sweet nothings in their ear, and what do we do in all that time? Well for me its PvP. Ok so... thoughts?
Quick note: This was a bit of a rant so I apologize for that. Also, typical rude responses like, "Don't like the game, get out" are redundant and un-welcomed. If you do here's my general response to you,
FFXIV Astrologian skills: Diurnal Sect & Nocturnal Sect
My healing partner really doesn't affect things; I'll stick with Nocturnal in A4 whether I'm paired with a White Mage, a Scholar, or another Astrologian in either Sect
Final Fantasy XIV: Let's talk about Hunts
Welcome to Heavensward! Here we figure out all the new things, let the research begin (but please do enjoy the game first OK?)
Returning FFXIV Player Confused
which class you wanna start with, depends if you want to FFXIV DPS, ffxiv tank or heal.I would recommend you to start with Gladiator if you want to tank, Thaumaturge for DPS or Conjurer for healer, as they are a bit easier than the other classes to handle in the beginning.
We aren't the real protagonist of FFXIV
They do all treat you like a dumb weapon though, something your shadow points out following the climactic confrontation of the Dark Knight 50 quest
