    PAX East 2017 Fan Site Interviews

    We all worked together to ensure the widest (and no repeats) question coverage we could possibly get so you could consider this three parts of a larger interview.

    Man, he straight up side stepped the repair question lol. That one would be nice considering that some of our raiders are lazy and don't want to finish up crafting to lv 50.

    Yep, anything remotely XI/1.0 related he seems to side steps lol.

    He did mention bringing back the original market system potentially for FC recruitment.

    I don't get why he brought up XI in regards to open world content, the answer wasn't that great either and it reeks of "expect more of the same" in regards to 4.0. But I guess that's to be expected now.

    That's what I find interesting, since doing a simple list as said would pretty much go the wayside.

    Honestly, the interviews here as well as the PAX Q&A only tells me that Yoshida knows less about his game than I thought he did. It's the only reason I can see him answering these questions in such an uninformed manner. Some of them I can see being lost in translation, but other things, like the Healer imbalance question, just went completely over his head.

    It's not his job to be hyper informed of the game anymore like in 2.X -- the game is a success now, so it's very obvious that despite being both the producer and director still, he's pulled back from a good deal of the day to day tasks that has required a close, watchful eye. Delegate the tasks to his team, and hold events like the Live Letter & Fan Fests to maintain excitement levels and bring back ideas/solutions for his team. It's all on-par for the course.

    I'm actually surprised that no one asked him if he was going to step down from being the director soon and just assume being the "face" of the MMO.

    He's answered that before - he said no one in SE is passionate about XIV like he is, since the higher ups sees XIV as a platform to make money, more so than it being a "game" which I guess is fine, since it IS making money doing what its doing, especially cash shop wise. He may want to stay as director as he said before, but he said he wouldn't mind if there were someone as passionate about it as he is. I know they still have Matsui and such over on XI but I know XI is their ultimate backup plan they'll finally give funding to if XIV screws the pooch soon.

    In all honesty though, I really loved the battle system Matsui created when they brought him over to help revamp 1.0.

    He certainly is one of the stellar talents remaining at SE and I hope he gets his. Though we all know he will probably crash and burn like so many other SE rockstars. ; ;

    People are still this delusional that XIV needs money pumping into it? Mogstation is probably pumping more money into XIV than what XI is bringing in from subs alone.

    I have a friend who fantasia's her character literally 5-10 times in a single month. Other friends who buy up just about every single piece of physical & digital collectible possible. Mogstation is definitely pumping way more money into FFXIV (and SE's coffers) than XI subs alone, not even including the sales they have on physical merchandising.

    I want whatever Dest is smoking if they believe XI is some sort of fallback.

    I died a little inside but it just confirms for me what I feared going into Stormblood. It'll likely be the last expansion I pick up since I want to follow the MSQ but i'm done with endgame. I'm going to stick with Black Desert, it's not perfect and it's missing some PvE content but it's scratching the itch enough.

    Pretty depressed though, hopefully FFXI Mobile is still in the works.

    I'm pretty sure FFXI Moble is going to work exactly how mobious works, you follow a path that will lead you to xarcabard and you'll kill shadow lord and then in 12 months they'll release a new update that lets you go to sky, 12 more months sea, etc etc, using currency or real cash to unlock advanced jobs and pull armor/weapons.

    I don't think it's going to go full nexon/cash shop like that, but then we really don't have any information about what they are doing with it.

    It's dead

    It's been in the works for what, 20 years? Feels like. I don't think it's ever coming out.
