I hope this means pieces of a non fully collected armor can go in when using the Porter Moogles. If a person has just the gloves or are 2/4, 3/4th till complete set instead of putting it in storage back at the mog house. Speaking of which. I SOOO hope that Mog Sack would mean storage from mog house storage.

I dislike it when placing furniture and decorations in the house results in losing mog safe space just to gain storage. To make it more annoying is you have to go back to your nation's mog house just to retrieve something or things from the storage.

@Terical

Porter Moogles will be happy to accept individual pieces and even upgraded items into their safekeeping. Adventurers wishing to store items may do so by purchasing corresponding storage slips from the moogle. Expected to cost approximately 1000 gil apiece, each slip can be reused to store and retrieve items an infinite number of times.

Storage space in games seems to be their new bait and switch/game extender/cash shop hook.

Every time I see FFwhatever it seems to me almost like the game was meant to be F2P but they decided last second not to go that rout. Seriously the horrible inventory space and cluttering drops are indicative of today's F2P, followed closely with "Buy more inventory space with MICROTRANSACTIONS!"

Now with more and more P2P games tossing CS into their games in a shameless attempt at double dipping .... I'm thinking that FFinsertrandomnumber was at the least probably meant to go that direction .... however with the reviews and feedback whoever is in control of the switch to turn the CS on. Realized that if they where to do that at this point and time they would go from dwindling customers to no customers at breakneck speed.

tl:dr
Everything about this game reeks of future microtransactions, enjoy your CS suckers.

Yes I read the article, If you bothered to actually read what I said you would notice .... that's I used a future tense, not present tense.

EG Message of impending* doom based on the look/feel and general actions of this and other current generation MMO.

Impending present participle of im┬Ěpend (Verb)
1. Be about to happen: "my impending departure".
2. (of something bad) Loom: "danger of collision impends".

I am more than aware that the inventory expansion at current it is purchasable in game. If you would look at other MMO both P2P(w/CS) and F2P you would notice that the first inventory expansion is usually purchasable or achievable in game.

Of course its cheap .... you have probably also noticed that they have pushed back the the date they will start charging monthly fees several times. In the form of complimentary time extensions. Do you think they could afford for it not to be cheap at this point?

If your going to slam people for reading comprehension, perhaps you should invest in a bit yourselves :)

"Inventory space is at a premium in Final Fantasy XI"

Final Fantasy XI...

1) It's about FFXI not FFXIV, and don't try to pretend you meant FFXI, because you clearly wrote "they extended the free month several times" which was done in FFXIV, and not FFXI (which the article is about)! So you must be one of those FFXIV trolls that just flames the game whenever you see FF in the title.

2) You use the future tense, so I guess you can predict the future? Did you predict how much people would think you're retarded after your post?

3) From now and on, your opinion means nothing to anyone.

1) I wouldn't I am more than willing to accept an oversight when one happens. So I wholeheartedly apologize for glazing past the roman numeral.Then assuming that an article covering a Final Fantasy MMO was in fact covering the new FF and not an inventory issue from the FF of what, five plus years ago?

2) Its not really that hard you just watch how things are unfolding, not like Crysta is a tell or anything. Tho if one goes down the CS path, which is almost certain. It would surprise me if the other did not follow close behind.

3) your words, they sting at the very core of my being. I am truly hurt. It is with great sadness that I now retire from the internet forever. You have bested me, you monster.

No ones opinions or prognostications mean anything to anyone, unless they do.

Well that's nice of them....

FFXI is still doing very well for itself, currently in its 8th year. According to every site that attempts to record the population including SE being as vague as ever, the population of Vana'diel has never dipped below 500k subscribers, and with XIV not doing so well, not to mention all the incredible updates XI has gotten this year the population has been increasing ever so lightly.

Honestly I would believe the population to be somewhere around 800k currently, and with the level cap about to hit 99 soon, a finale of WoTG, and more storage options, XI is getting better and better.


I would be playing XI instead of awaiting the Cataclysm release, but I have 10,000 Crysta tied up in XIV, and sadly can't use that to pay for XI. Square-Enix isn't getting another dime from me until they get XIV up to the expected snuff it should have been at launch. Coming from the same development team I was taken aback by the lack of anything awesome in XIV that XI has currently, that should have been a no-brainer to transfer over in one form or another.

Patiently awaiting XIV to be updated enough for me to enjoy it, but sadly it doesn't look like that time will come until next fall...
