This is a picture of Final Fantasy XIV of the duty finder. This game was released on consoles meaning there is a large chunk of the playerbase coming into this game for the first time on this type of platform that has never experienced a raid on this scale. Recently about a couple of weeks ago Square Enix, like it always does puts its previously relevant raid content that was normally only accessible to premade groups going to a meetup spot and entering from there, to putting it into the Duty Finder, a tool used to group up random indivuduals of all premade or solo queues. The part of the raid I have checkmarked happens to be the the last boss of the final raid of vanilla, and what that means is I can if I choose to do so, click the join button, and queue up with possibly seven other random people who have no idea what they're doing and let fate decide what happens to that party. Is this begging for a shitty experience? Totally. Is this hurting the game in any way shape or form? absolutely not. There is the Party Finder route in game where you can do exactly what the Destiny LFG sites do and allows you to gather people from your own server to queue up as a premade 8 man team. Which keep in mind is also totally capable of providing the same outcome as you would just queuing up for the raid in the duty finder in the first place.

The fact that people still argue about a matchmaking option for people if they chose to do so for a Destiny raid, which doesn't even come close to the mechanics of an actual MMO encounter is plain silly. Is Bungie really so convinced that Destiny is the most complicated game that these tools are just not compatible with the experience? Or does the option to look for a premade group in-game have to exist before allowing a random group of six people who've never met before allowed to just go with it.

For the PS4 I recently mustered up enough energy to care and get the Platinum for Final Fantasy XIV.

On the Playstation platforms prior to that I only got two, which would be Heavy Rain and Lightning Returns.

I find it funny two out of three of my platinum trophies came from a franchise I only started recently caring about.

To those who were able to see the page before all the tickets sold out, did they eliminate the four day pass this year? Or was there a special early bird option that disappeared before they sold out. Just curious since they upped the single day passes again this year.

This doesn't surprise me in the slightest. For about two years now whenever contacted at a GDQ during a banjo run, Kirkhope would always go on a tangent about how he doesn't know how Microsoft hasn't gotten the skeleton crew at Rare to make a proper Banjo game. I figured the next logical step for him were to be go with the rest of the people who also made those games to make another one of those games.

To be honest you should probably spend your tomes, the new currency for the new dungeon point gear like system won't be out by the release of Heavesward, but more than likely the poetics and soldiery currency will be all but worthless in the expansion.

I'd recommend you hoard all of your Gil though, who knows what you might need it for and it would be unwise to assume Gil won't matter at all like the launch of 2.0.

Finish all your story quests to get ready for the 3.0 main scenario, and just have fun playing the stuff you missed out on in the past months. It's a real bummer to return to an MMO and be stuck behind old content when the new stuff just came out

Using the summon feature is not surrendering to the boss by any means. Now if you paid Fromsoft money for a skip fight coin, THAT would be surrendering. For the most part I always just saw the summoning allies the same as I see Online Monster Hunter. I mean yeah the online versions of monsters are scaled up for four people in mind, but a huge chunk of people I know that I play the game with can solo G-Rank monsters. It's there for a reason, and if you do use it, the feature is working as intended.

Jeff was the hero we deserved, if he hadn't gotten the mini game star then Dan would have won due to the coin lead.

Thank you Jeff.

Bowser's Gnarly Party, because it's actually his party.

You can't be serious, the content in this season pass was a two for the price of one deal. How does a horde mode stack up to a raid. Like honestly this is like if Square came out and said XIV would not be introducing a raid tier because "stuff happened". Even on a bad patch the MMOs on the market give better content than Destiny does for the price you pay for it.

SERIOUSLY, how long was it everyone spent in Crota just to have the gear they got out of it amount to nothing until September. How does the player base survive after this.

I super appreciate being featured this week, I'm having a lot of fun revisiting XIV, and this makes me super psyched to get part 3 up later tonight. Thanks again!
