    Probably so they can keep it to ARR because honestly I don't know what they'll add for 4.5

    Also I hope the cutscene is unskippable.

    My GF is betting on Alex for 4.5

    I love the excuse of "we did titan 3 times, doing it a 4th time would be bad!" Here we are with our 4th Ultima encounter that no one was asking for.

    What's wrong with ultima as an ultimate trial? Could be pretty hard...

    i like the idea of ultima as an ultimate. potentially the gear will look nice and techy as well. and ultima weapon being what it is for the series, is woefully presented in this game. this will allow the character to as a hard extra boss like thing

    I would also want to nominate Odin for the next next ultimate. He was hard when it first came out, but it would be nice for him to return including mechanics from his FATE version.

    They won't touch Alex until 5.X series.

    Ultima will at least be nice because we've never gotten weapons from the fight. Plus with the theatrics involved from Praetorium it could be really fun (Rather than dumb as you melt his face in, wait for hydaelyn to do her thing, and meld down everything else).

    ngh, housing in this game.

    Anyone know if any sites exist that poll data from servers on housing availability? checking manually on a server to server basis by creating alts is practically impossible (esp. looking at shirogane)

    The funniest part of this all is it all started because NA OF begged to buy Fantasias without realizing it'd lead to SE going deeper in the rabbit hole on how they'll charge us..and thus, mogstation and stuff like this is born. I'm not enough of a hoarder to fall for an extra $5/mo ontop of the 6 months at a time I pay with crysta reserves, but if it offered, Idk..the usual premium perks of a F2P MMO, I'd do it.

    I guess it'll take SE dropping the sub for people to realize we've long been in F2P territory, not even the good kind of F2P either. They'll restore our extra 1-2 dungeons but need a mog station item to access it soon enough.

    We just have a hybridized monetization model in FFXIV, which has both subscription and f2p elements. This is Yoshi-P's vision of a successful monetization model and part of their design plan.

    so his idea of hybridization is charging a full blown sub price in addition to full blown F2P elements. lel. funny 'cause hybrid jobs in the game don't follow this same philosophy!

    So the F2P model is implemented once every 6 months to give players 96hours of play time in which they should be able to experience all past and current content and exhaust said content in that time frame.

    The less popular games in the FFXIV Theme Park are fully f2p. I mean all the Gold Saucer minigames (which is accessible to lvl 15 free trial characters) and PvP (which is again accessible to lvl 30 free trial characters, on equal terms with paying customers, except for ranked matches).

    PvE is the premium game. You need to buy base game + expansion and a subscription to experience it after level 35. And there are also all the "optional" mogstation items and services on top of it, that would be natural for a f2p. There have been no paid items/services at game launch, but more and more of them are being added gradually, so that players get used to them before each next step.

    As to different f2p monetization tricks, the most popular one among FFXIV developers seem to be "Fun Pain" related to inventory space. Another prominent feature is the threat of automatic housing demolition in case if you don't stay subscribed for longer than 45 days. And now we are also getting a purchasable premium currency (moogle coins) in the mobile app.

    "Please look forward to more..." (c) Yoshi-P.

    I can appreciate the fact that they've been alleviating the pain of inventory management in this expansion. The expansion of item stacks to x999. Your base inventory getting +40 slots (Even if the expanded inventory window took a nerf) and the free 70 slots from the chocobo bag and a glamour chest with 200 slots that in 4.3 we'll be able to swap gear in and out with.

    Kinda sucks they're locking a second page to the chocobo bag to a $5/mo additional subscription but for that price you might as well just grab a retainer or two and get free gil from ventures.
