Sumasu Dreams of Ice

Main Scenario Quests

Started out with "OMG someone stole teh crystals!" and ended with a tea party. They are definitely prepping us for Heavensward and Ishgard. Lots of political stuff  that I enjoyed.

Yeah, it became clear pretty quickly why they announced Heavensward before 2.4 came out. It's seriously moving us in the direction of Ishgard. I thought it was a good addition to our existing storyline, and I enjoyed the political angle as well. 

He just needs a hug?
I do hope they don't go this direction for overall shoulder armor designs...

Very reminiscent of the ridiculousness of WoW. I'm not a fan.

Cash Shop: Debacle or Delight?

With the addition of the cash shop in FFXIV, it's been a hotly debated topic on the forums. We definitely have some strong opinions on this. First, let's limit our discussion to subscription based games only. We consider cash shops in free to play (F2P) games a little bit differently, as well as some hybrid models. F2P games need to make their money somewhere.

We are fundamentally opposed to cash shops in subscription based games. There are multiple reasons and yes, some cash shops are more palatable than others, but we are definitely against it in general.
