Morning in Vana'diel: PvP in FFXIV?

Morning in Vana'diel is your daily dose of FFXI and all things Vana'diel. Give us your thoughts on the interesting topics of the day! PvPer's are mouth-breathers and gankers all! I bet they like to steal candy from babies and bang Sam's mom!

So far SE (Tanaka specifically) has said that FFXIV will not have open world PvP and even if PvP does make an appearance it will be in the form of a sport or game like Ballista or Brenner. For most FFXI people this is pretty much the norm. There has never been any focus on PvP really, even if some people found Ballista and Brenner to be quite fun. FFXI was never designed to have PvP in it, and while Ballista and Brenner do allow it, it definitely wasn’t the focus of the development team for more than an update or two.

With the confirmation of the lack of PvP in FFXIV, I have seen a few (not many) posts around the interweb decrying the loss of their favorite past time… but I have to wonder if they are barking up the wrong tree. Most people that were very pro-PvP left FFXI a very long time ago to play WoW which has a very developed and balanced world and game-based PvP system. To stay in FFXI and complain that FFXIV doesn’t have a PvP system is kind of like going to a Football game and getting upset that they are not playing Basketball.

Now, I am not trying to decry the entirety of PvP. There should be places where those mouth-breathers can gank each other to their hearts delight. (I KID! I KID!) But FFXI has never been a place for that outside of the (rather enjoyable) games that people can play against each other in game. I don’t know why the same developer with the same development team would approach the sequel to the same game any differently.

I guess I will never understand the mind of the PvP mouth-breather… I KID! :)

Another pvp hating internet troll. why would you even make a topic like this. people like you will ruin ffxiv. Sadly instead of tryin to work with every to work out pvp/pve conflicts, you would rather it be banned from the game completly. your a biased failbot, with no class or sportmanship. Leme guess you dont wana get ganked or you dont want distastfull players around. well the assholes will be there, "you will be there" And people like you deserve to get ganked even tho that can be fixed easily with pvp/pve server seperation. but thats outa the question cuzz havin pvp in a fighting rpg is unheard of by trolls like yourself who who exxcuses like" i hope SE spend more time on pve content". most retarded shit i ever heard. why the fuck do we pay to play a game? so we can get what we pay for not hear excuses to why they not able to do their job.

Just cause you dont want it doesnt meen ALOT of other people do. your and fucktard loser got pwned in pvp to much... I kid i kid ... not truth hurts go fuck yourself, and get ready for all the cassual asshole that will tell you the exact same fucking thing when you try to tell them how they should play the game they pay to play. the developers stated multiple time in different topics that they are taking fans input on how they gona go about makin ffxiv. and if you same fags that have no life would stop sayin the same shit like some1 is soposed to walk you threw every lil detail of how pvp can coexist in a pve game. i dont have time to fix your ignorance nor do i care. just know if you didnt like how ffxi turned out you only got yourselfs to blame. and whn ffxiv flops cuzz lack of interest to the whole mmo comunitees blame asshole like this.

You are the reason that I am glad there will be no PvP in FFXIV. :)

You are the reason im glad i left ffxI. Balista was in it and it will be in ffxiv so you can fuck off to asswipe. dont realy care what the fuck any you forum trolls have to fucking say if SE caters to you. the game will be small and boring. with a population no more than fxi has had for last 4 year, less that 500k. I know most of you used to wasting time and not doin shit when you play the game you pay for but when the other millions of gamers jump on bandwagon they wont be on these forums telling you what they want they will be buying Diablo 3 or catalism for wow. or tryin the next big thing.... I give it 6-12 months with no PVP in it.

Ringthree said...

First of all, this isn't a forum. This is my blog. Second, you are the kind of mouth breather that makes me glad that WoW exists so you don't ruin my favorite game with your lack of intelligence and your e-thuggery.

As I said, you are the exact reason that I am glad there will be no PvP in FFXIV.

I fail @ life so i troll the internet making blogs to silence all the pvp hopes of ffxiv. STop asking bout pvp i dont want to do it. Im scared you might kill me in a video game based on... killing stuff.

Hope i get to gank you. Hope SE dont listen to fanboys like this. they will be nug huged on anything they sell them. SE needs to cater to those who that went to other game for a more fullfuiling mmo experience. witch meen pvp/pve and all the good that should come with and a mainstream video game.

ringtree sayed on gamescon said...

Of FFXI players you are in the tiny minority. PvP has never been "make or break" for FFXI people. I think you are very much exaggerating the aspect of PvP in MMOs. Most don't like the games playing aspects that you do, most just like PvP for the ganking and corpse camping.

I would suggest that this is one of the reasons that the mentality of FFXI players been higher than WoW is because of the lack of PvP. There are many games out there for PvP, not all games have to fill every niche.


I played ffxi for over 6 years and i dont like you think your a cocksucking internet troll. Yea there was alota of peeps like me that woulda told you to go fuck yourself.

I guess playing FF 1-13 does not make me elegible to bein a tru ff fan that wants to play the game for a different reason than you.
I should just stop giving SE my money cuzz you say so.... You go around all the ffxiv pvp sites and knock any idea of it.

I SPEAK ON THE BEHALF OF INTELLIGENCE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE.
Ok...these people are being retarded, though I agree that there should be some form of PvP I'm not gonna go saying "F this and F you."
So, for one I think they should put in a kind of duel or challenge kind of thing and maybe make a coliseum. Basically do what they did for Brenner but take away the sport.
If someone told me that FFXIV should have PvP like WoW I would say no. FF doesnt need to have open PvP but they should still make everyone happy by adding it in the form of what I stated earlier. Some people would like to test themselves against others (like me) while some would like to just party up with friends, or not, and play the game(like my gf). This is just my opinion and I am just replying to your blog, I doubt this will even happen cause SE won't listen to us. Some people might go and say "play WoW if you want PvP" but...WoW is a terrible game with even more terrible graphics. I do play Aion but havent been able to play it due to computer issues. I'm just hoping that SE does something simple and not make a stupid game as an excuse for PvP. To everyone kicking and screaming at this guy, grow up, you do sound like a mouth-breather.

Good Pvp'ers tend to be also very good Pve'ers. And typically mouth breathers are the pve'ers who sit there spamming they're best ability. your logic is terrible.

i think, MMOs like WoW, or Warhammer with a big PvP content, has the bader community. FFXI was 99.9% PvE, and it have a good community.
sure, some sort of pvp wil be good, like Ballista. but not more. cuz, if all the roxxor kiddies join FFXIV, the community wil be bad.
