World of Warcraft #1 Competitor
Did you know, Final Fantasy XIV was one of the biggest flops MMORPGs in history. It’s failure was unmatched until Bless Online came around. Which was crowned in a totally different way.
Final Fantasy XIV failure was simply due the game was not up to standard and had way to much issues while Bless Online was the developers milked it for all it’s worth.
To all Bless Online fans, I loved that game, I played the KR version religiously before being region banned. Then I supported the Global Release and played over 200hours before it shut down. However, despite how much I enjoyed it, It was a major flop, the developers really screwed that one up.
Anyways, back on topic, Square Enix made a massive comeback, just as their flop was history’s worse, they also made the biggest MMORPG comeback with Final Fantasy XIV that cannot be rivaled by any other game. Nowadays, Final Fantasy XIV is on par with Blizzard’s World of Warcraft. While it is not a WoW killer by any means, it’s WoW biggest rival. You have a very clear division between WoW and FF14 fans.
While WoW is focused on the end-game contents and PVP driven for eSports, Final Fantasy XIV on the other hand is very story driven and focuses more on PVE end-game as opposed to PVP.
One of the biggest likes in my books for Final Fantasy XIV is the ability to play and swap to any and all classes under just 1 character.
Final Fantasy XIV uses the same model as World of Warcraft, a Buy to Play Base Game and expansion, in addition for Subscription for in game time model. This means, once you leveled up to max level, you would be required to buy the game and pay for subscription time.
However, until then, for a limited time being, Final Fantasy XIV is willing to give free trials to everyone who signs up via the link before to Max Level before needing a subscription.
The only catch for this is, that you need a brand new account, all previous accounts don’t qualify for this.
