    I got into this over the holidays, but I'm on Hyperion. Maybe I'll roll an alt on Leviathan. What do people think of the Gold Saucer so far?

    Looks like the Free Login WEEK will be a good time for me to get back in and run some dungeons.

    I havent been around because i just dont feel like playing anymore probably wont be back till heavensward, I just dont care about grinding for gear that will be obsolete when it hits and the golden saucer doesnt interest me.

    That's fine. However, would you mind dropping by to clear out your Private Room in the FC Estate Hall? We can't relinquish the old Estate and buy the new Medium sized one until all of the private rooms have been demolished. Otherwise we might have to temporarily kick you from the FC, and I don't want to do that.

    Anyways, Texside, I've been enjoying the Gold Saucer so far. Triple Triad is fun, and I've been slowly getting better at the Chocobo races.

    That's been my experience. Chocobo racing took me a bit to dig into, but it's been fun. I'm getting the hang of Triple Triad; I never did it (or FF8) much before, so it's kinda new to me.

    Sadly Triple Triad isn't like how it is in FF8, in terms of spoils for winning. For winning, you got to choose an opponent's card to take. There's an obvious reason why it isn't like that here, but I'd at least like a free booster pack for winning, I hate having to go back just to buy new cards.

    The random drop to MAYBE get a decent card for NPCs was... definitely a thing, from the little I tried. A teeth-grinding thing.

    Sigh!

    Did they say what date the last part of the 2.5 story is coming out? Really need to know if my prediction that the scions all get horribly slaughtered is accurate or not.

    I can't edit right now but Levi is broken at the moment no one can get past the log in screen and the search claims there are only 80 people on line

    I had to create me a new character on Diabolos cause my friends couldn't join Leviathan due to it not accepting new players. :( If anyone is on there befriend me my name is Orochi Bladestorm

    Maybe that happened because I removed my credit card info and SE tried to charge NULL?

    I cut it close. 1 hour before SE cancelled my account I got enough Poetics for new pants, quickly made a new cap that didn't cover my adorable eyes, glamoured, and logged out. I'll be back on the next free login to finish the beast group I was one day from completing.

    Thanks again to everyone for a fun month! And sorry I broke Levi.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    More importantly, MGP rewards are being increased! Also a few TT changes (nerfing some npc's, doing something to tournaments to stop win-trading.)

    I don't think it's just FFXIV. WoW is having some issues with stability and Latency today as well (sitting at 1500 MS)

    Darn. The restrictions on new players being able to join a server let up on a regular basis, so if your friends are persistent, they should be able to get into Leviathan. Still, I can undestand. I hope you have fun on Diabolos server.

  • AncientRuneAncientRune Member Full Members
    so some preliminary 2.55 patch notes were revealed on a developer blog

    MGP changes are coming. Minigames will give double the MGP now
    More MGP for higher ranked Chocobo Races. Also buffed EXP for those.
    Many more changes to Gold Saucer, please look forward to the patch notes.

    and fiannly by far the best news: Magitek Mount will now get its own theme song, it's "Terra's theme" from FFVI. For best results get two friends and march together when it's snowing.

    Eventually I wanna try to convince them to transfer to Leviathan. I'd like to go back there so we can all be part of the RPGamer guild.

    Guys, pretty sure the new trial is gonna be a DF graveyard haha
  • AncientRuneAncientRune Member Full Members
    Oh it's not hard just a pain
  • DarkRPGMasterDarkRPGMaster A Witness to Destruction Moderators
    Guys, if you haven't finished the main story, DO IT. I can't stress it enough, it's the single greatest finale to an expansion I've ever seen. So much awesome, shockers, and tears shed during this. Helps that it has an actual credit roll with "Answers" playing during it at the end of the main story.

    Huh, they actually went and did what I thought they would. I didn't actually think SE would go through with it, though I guess they leave themselves plenty of outs.

    Edit: This made me laugh a lot, BUT DON'T CLICK UNLESS YOU"VE BEATEN THE STORY - i.imgur.com/rqrtB4n.jpg

    Heavensward opening movie.

    WARNING: HELLA 2.55 SPOILERS
  • DarkRPGMasterDarkRPGMaster A Witness to Destruction Moderators
    Not bad at all, but yes, 2.55 ending spoilers right there. Looking forward to the new stuff, though I really hope this is worth $40.
