Over the weekend, hundreds of Final Fantasy XI
players gathered in Hollywood, Calif., to celebrate their favorite
pastime at the FFXI Fan Festival 2008.
While the Ten Ton Hammer staff has reported on the event from a broad
strokes perspective, we have yet to really delve into the finer details
of the show. Luckily, I was given an opportunity to sit down with a
group of Final Fantasy XI developers and several of my game journalism
peers to discuss some of the finer details of the FFXI and what players
can expect from any forthcoming patches and expansions.
So where does it stop? I mean, right now the ability to do all of these things is barely holding together. There's going to be new endgame content in the new expansions that's going to compete with these existing events. I mean, there's only so much time that people have to schedule these large-scale events.
Square Enix: You're not obligated to do it all. Nobody's saying you have to do all of these to be "endgame." Nobody ever said you had to get all the gear. You’ve got to pick your battles, do what you want to do, figure out which gear you want and do that content.
