DISCUSSION

They really are putting a crazy amount of work into reinventing the game. Even now, it's in far better shape than it was originally, and the biggest patches (including 2.0, the game's "relaunch" - pictured in the article) have yet to arrive. Hopefully, rebranding and re-releasing it will help people realize it's damn near a new game rather than saying, "Wait, FFXIV? I heard that sucked." and ignoring it. Sad that it wasn't in this shape 2 years ago, but they've certainly made the most of their time since then to make it a game worth playing once more.
