    Spamming it feels great. Unfortunately spamming it in Limsa is a bannable offense.

    Aight, i just finished the ARR storyline and JESUS they have to tone it down with the cutscenes.
    I don't mind the long cutscenes here and there, but being bombarded with them for over an hour without the ability to skip them while doing GROUP content is just waaaaaay too much.

    On the plus side, i got the Magitek mech thing as mount which is cool and i finished the lvl 50 dragoon quests and now my catboy looks badass

    Dont worry, they chill out a bit with the cutscenes the farther you get into the game

    As was stated above, they learned their lesson with the 2.0 mega-dungeons. They are put in their own roulette away from the rest and they do not have extensive cutscenes in the middle of dungeons again. If there are cutscenes tied to a dungeon they generally come at the end once the party has disbanded.

    Haha, don't diss my Flashbang.
    Though BLMs Ice III is a close runner-up in dark dungeons.

    Yeah, thankfully they never repeated the mistakes of Castrum and Praetorium.

    Its just SUCH a satisfying button to press. From the spinny character animation, to that 'charge up' sound and the moment it explodes in a full screen ball of light. God, its good.

    They're investing like 60 million into server infrastructure and a new data center. I still expect the servers to get burdened on launch just because of the nature of the beast but they're prepping atleast.

    Man seeing people raid Coil and get more views than the WoW race to world first has gotten some people extremely salty. What a strange year for mmo's this is turning out to be.

    Just proves that it isn't the content as much as the people that they want to watch.

    if asmon kept playing wow he'd still average around 30-50k viewers like the 3+ months before he played ff14 for the first time, now he's averaging 80-100k so obviously content matters a whole lot.

    Yeah sure, your favorite person doing something new and unexpected is more interesting than him doing the same old same old.
    In a few months, his views will come down to comparable levels.

    I would not use these numbers in arguing which is the better game, that is just nonsensical.

    Also, I'd argue that raid videos lost a lot of the glamour attached to them when Blizzard introduced difficulty modes for everyone.
    It was something special to see Nihilum do Sunwell back in the day, knowing that you will most likely never get to experience the content yourself.

    I have no idea how people can watch the world-first race in the first place. The hosts suffer through several hours of talking about the same shit over and over again and you have to watch people fail over and over again.
    The MDI is way more interesting to me than that - and that says something.

    I think most people would rather watch someone to react to something they like... so it's not that suprising to me and I wonder who would get salty over something like that. When Shroud played Battleroyale XY for the first time, it had/would have more viewers than "that other game's worldcup" as well

    Unless you're on a European data center, most people aren't online right now. People are just waking up in the US. It's midnight in Australia.

    I am actually excited. I am hoping the influx of players will translate to more funding and more/even better content.

    I think it's good. It's exactly the shot of excitement the genre needed. There is life beyond WoW.

    Thats not how it works. I watched for couple hours quin when he tried xiv and it was just too painful to watch so i switched to literally anything else (it was heartstone streams or sth). On the other hand I could watch him stream PoE all day any day. Other games? Depends.

    Its the combination of content + the person who is streaming what matters. I don't really watch asmon, he has some cringe takes sometimes but I do watch when he does raids (that wipes them).

    And I do not agree with raids losing "glamour" - thats something I won't ever agree neither with your or asmon. Exclusivity is what kills games.
