Ugh....

It's Final Fantasy XI-2, so far, in terms of setting, races, et al. Give me something -new-. Something that isn't a skeleton from XI with next gen skin thrown on it. C'mon, SE. I largely skipped out on the original because I wasn't totally down with the look and feel (and the ridiculous grind, but that's another story). Don't completely replicate it with no new additions to speak of and call it a day.

Do these two really look the same to you?

They said they're trying to make the game familiar to people that enjoyed FFXI. I like that, because I enjoyed FFXI. Just because you didn't doesn't mean that SE should gear the entire game towards people that weren't even fans of their first game.

What he said!

And, I can tell you that those of us who loved FFxi, are quickly and dangerously falling in love at first sight.

Its a dangerous road, your bound to get your heart broken, but I myself feel comfortable jumping all over this game and falling in love already.

you are dumb dude, FFXIV is set in the world of FFXI, just in a different time period. They even said that at the beginning.

If by "they said that" you mean "they said the EXACT OPPOSITE of that" then yes.

Vana'diel was the world of XI.

Eorzea is the world (or country, actually, I think) of XIV. In either case, it has been stated in interviews that the game take place on two different worlds. No two Final Fantasies that don't share a subtitle of some sort ever re-use the same setting.

Raze, there's one exception: Ivalice is the setting for FF Tactics, FF Tactics Advance, and FFXII.

But Eorzea is still set in a different world than Vana'diel.
