    When did FFXI jump the shark?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumping_the_shark

    I say somewhere between the last CoP content update and the release of Aht Urhgan.

    Tiamat falls to the ground.
    You find a fire crystal on Tiamat.






    Right about then I think.

    When jailers were found to be the gods of sea but not having 100% drop rates on their spawn items.

    rng nerf

    tiamat / jormy / vrtra not having any good drops worth the time

    same with jailers

    new dynamis zones being crappy instead of making relic easier

    DOES ANYONE SEE THE THEME????????

    It's CoP of course!

    Yeah, that sums it up better than mine.

    And yet, Assault, Salvage, and ToAU in general apart from missions are more fun than all of Zilart.

    When Ridill droppped of fafnir, after the 20th kill.


    I wouldn't say it's CoP, shitty gear, job nerf or anything mentioned above, it's the poorly planned and executed endgame that kill the game. I can understand that content isnt perfect at the release, but they rarely show any sign of wanting to fix the issue everyone is complaining about. There has been a few gem here and there like Dynamis (not talking about relic weapon), Limbus and sky, but the rest need to modified to be worthwhile and fun.


    One thing I always liked in this game are mission. I thought zilart, CoP and toa (too short so far tho) were all well done and fun.

    ToAU has some extremely long cutscenes that I end up getting bored of and skipping most of the time.

    Complaining fixes problems though! If we don't complain this shit will always be this way.

    edit: well, sometimes, not always.

    cop i think was the moment when ffxi jumped the shark. but i think to an extent they have jumped back with toau

  15. #15

    The whole game is designed around needed a huge amount of inputted time to achieve things, be it a full set of cursed/AF2, missions complete or relic.

    I personally think they put too few servers up, halving the populations per server would alleviate some of the crowding, and allow more people to waht they want - kill stuff/look cool. But this is a circular argument which will only result in "teh claim system needs changing /zomginstance".

    meh somethings about CoP were good, apoclypse neigh, Baha v2, ouryu rematch, obi/gorgets, rings @ the end. I think the jailers and 3 CoP wyrms was where FFXI jumped shark, that content should of been done better. No one still don't know what the story of AV is and doesn't seem like people even care to know about it enough. ToAU has some decent stuff so far but salvage is kinda meh, I think limbus is still a better system since it was rewarding from the start.
