So this was the big announcement we have been waiting for? Just the details of a version update? If so, that is both a relief and disappointment. I was hoping for a new expansion or something!

im fairly positive wotg was the last real expansion. with ff14 scheduled for coming out this year it wouldn't make much sense to have a full expansion in the works for this game too (besides last i checked they still aren't done with wotg's story)

Hey, just because I'm only [on average] 1 mission into each expansion doesn't mean I don't need new and exciting places to explore. But, I personally was just hoping the announcement wouldn't be the end of the game. I just read a rumor about the expansion thing and thought it would be cool, though unlikely.

I don't think ff14 will completely killed off ff11, there would still be people playing it. But it all depends on what SE decides to do about it :) There were some rumours about them making it into a offline game, but who knows if that's true. BUt I think you are right about WOTG being the last expansion for FF11 :) I would kinda come back to finish WOTG, if I could find a set for it ^^;

i think SE has said a couple of times they have no intentions of killing off ff11 until it is no longer profitable. For as much flak as this game has taken over the years, its done an amazing job at making SE money...not WoW money, but a respectable amount. enough to keep them from having to layoff massive amounts of employees like just about every other game company (cause really what other SE game can you think of thats been a big seller in the last few years). So until you see the player base drop to about...oh i dunno 30% of what it is now i think ff11 is safe.

The 99 cap increase is going to be gradual and in "Stages" they said, so my guess 5lv increments genkai 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. I just wonder how the quest(s) will be, doubt something can top maat/other job fights. But knowing SE they will "try" to top it with some uber-awesome-hateful quest(s). Plus they said they were going to adjust job ablities/traits for "sub"ed jobs so shouldn't be too game breaking, still sweet.

new avatars only summonable during 2hr.

also Bismarck stays Bismarck bishes.
