With long wait ing times
In July 2021, F inal Fantasy XIV
When Final Fantasy XIV After implementing these automatic logoffs, I was surprised that the game wasn’t already booting people who weren’t doing anything. In terms of maintaining online stability, it only makes sense. Attracting tens of thousands of players at any given time means doing everything possible to ensure the servers don’t get overloaded. Other persistent online games like World of Warcraft, Runescapeand Lost Arkfor example, have long had their own AFK timers.
Final Fantasy XIV– and therefore its player base – is different from other MMOs. The lack of an AFK player booting system allows the world to feel fuller and more alive. Travel to one of Final Fantasy XIVThe bustling city centers of can be an overwhelming experience as you often only come across crowds of players depend. In fact, some people never log out at all, preferring to let their characters while away the time between game sessions in public areas.
As such, the Final Fantasy XIV The team’s decision to remove the AFK timer is proving popular with the MMO’s passionate community.
“When I started, there was a guy on the street at the Black Shroud for a whole week,” said one player on the Final Fantasy XIV underreddit in reply to the message. “I was speechless. Now I almost never log out for no particular reason, so I get it.”
“Before [Endwalker] published, there was always a guy on the steps in front of the Aetheryte in Ul’Dah doing it [Bee’s Knees dance]” said another player. “I’ve dubbed him the meth pope because of his colorful outfit (or lack thereof), and I saw him for the first time in months this morning.”
“I alt-tab in the [free company] house every day, with the music staying in the background,” said a third. “I guess I’m probably not alone in this. Other people just never unsubscribe. Modern PCs have the ability to keep up [Final Fantasy XIV] open without interfering with anything else. Can literally play other games while [it’s] constantly. I log in when I turn on my PC and log out when I turn it off.”
Final Fantasy XIVThe social aspects of often challenge players to achieve personal goals outside of traditional content, such as: make their character as bright as possible.
Square Enix is currently enjoying a lap of honor thereafter endwalker contributed to a “sharp increase” in subscriptions, making it one of the company’s most profitable ventures over the past fiscal year. Aside from removing the AFK timer, Final Fantasy XIV has also received minor mechanical adjustments and additional content via the current “Newfound Adventure” patch, some of which should lead directly into the next big storyline.
