Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn outperformed and Square Enix revised their earning forecast. Their original estimate for net sales was between 59 billion yen ($598 million) and 63 billion yen ($639 million). This number was adjusted to 61.7 billion yen ($626 million).
Square Enix original estimated up to a 2 billion yen ($20 million) operating loss, but thanks to Final Fantasy XIV and strong arcade sales Square Enix expects 4.7 billion yen ($48 million) of operating profit. That’s a significant turn around. Net income was adjusted from between 0 to a 1.3 billion yen ($13 million) loss to 2.6 billion yen profit ($26 million). All numbers are for the six month period ending on September 30, 2013.
Great news! It's still a bit of a shock how much that game blew up out of nowhere.
I haven't logged in for a few weeks, but I've not abandoned it yet. I hate that I'm wasting money by not playing it, but I just don't feel like playing it right now. Darn subscriptions.
I'm done with the game until they fix Titan Hard Mode. The amount of lag an individual can have in that fight varies so greatly that even when you're doing things right you can still get hit by plumes or bombs. Done this fight in the 50+ range and still no success. And I've given up farming for buying a Titan win.
I know the mechanics, I know the rotation but I can't tell you how many times I've been out of a plume for 1-2 seconds and still get hit by it even pre moving.
