Merge proposal[edit]

Hi, what about merge this page with the article about Final Fantasy XIV? Now we have:

Final Fantasy XIV (2010) (Original game)

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (2013) (Patch that remixed and added new content)

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward (2015) (Expansion Pack)

A page with the style of the article about Final Fantasy XI would be perfect in my opinion (Original game plus 12 Expansion Packs) Druntamah (talk) 15:00, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Oppose Same reasons as the last merger discussion that was just archive by nom. FF XIV and FF XIV: ARR are distinct games and topics. FF XIV: ARR is not a patch to FF XIV, but a complete rebuild and relaunch of the game. There is no article for Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward so it has no place in the merger proposal, there is nothing to merge. -- ferret (talk) 15:05, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Agree People that purchased Final Fantasy XIV eventually updated into Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn with the same playable character in the same Eorzea world (mutated thru ingame natural disasters that affected Eorzea) and now the game for PS4 is again branded simply Final Fantasy XIV (with the inlines A Realm Reborn and Heavensward): source amazon: http://www.amazon.it/Final-Fantasy-XIV-Reborn-Heavensward/dp/B00UU0XF5C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1432308144&sr=8-1&keywords=final+fantasy+xiv Zumbor78 (talk) 15:23, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
The reliable sources treat them as separate games, and that's all that really matters here. There's 100s of sources already involved, so it's not difficult to show. -- ferret (talk) 15:36, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
New user with a strikingly similar edit history as the nominator's. Both accounts have a history of removing content without explanation and being reverted for it. Please forgive me if I call you a WP:DUCK WP:SOCK. Axem Titanium (talk) 20:07, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Oppose. The proposer just archived a lengthy discussion about this very topic and did not provide any new reasoning (or any reasoning at all). As such, I cannot assume that this is a proposal made in good faith. Axem Titanium (talk) 19:56, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Considering this closed, Druntamah and Zumbor78 are now blocked as socks. -- ferret (talk) 14:23, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

lgbt category[edit]

same sex marriage is present, can we add a lgbt category? 66.25.246.226 (talk) 03:53, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Is it commonly defined as such by third party, reliable sources? If yes, then its possible (though I can't say I've seen this upon casual reading.) If not, then it probably shouldn't. (You've been involved in a number of these discussions now, shouldn't you "know the drill" by now?) Sergecross73 msg me 16:12, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/06/11/e3-2014-final-fantasy-14-getting-two-new-classes-gay-marriage can i add the category now? 66.25.246.226 (talk) 22:01, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
Does one source prove "commonly"? Sergecross73 msg me 17:45, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Theres plenty of articles about this. http://www.businessinsider.com/final-fantasy-xiv-will-allow-same-sex-marriages-2014-6 Just give it a google search, the list goes on. 66.25.246.226 (talk) 03:58, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

i got an ad about playing the game for free[edit]

seems based on that that the game have gone for free to play.84.212.73.96 (talk) 13:46, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Will be happy to review. JAGUAR  16:24, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Initial comments[edit]

  • " for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Sony PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4" - no need for "Sony"
    • Done.
  • "and the first 24-man raid, Crystal Tower" - I don't know what this means
    • I added a wikilink to raid (gaming) and reworded it slightly. Is it more clear?
      • Got it, thanks JAGUAR  14:50, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
  • "Regardless of server or language, the game features a large library of automatically translated game terms and general phrases which allow players who speak different languages to communicate" - this sentence needs a citation. I didn't see anything about automatic translation in ref 6
    • Done.
  • "Upon reaching the level cap, currently 60" - is 'currently 60' still acceptable now? Does the game get regularly updated to introduce new ranks?
    • Removed.
  • "These Jobs, based on classic Final Fantasy character jobs" - does 'jobs' need to be capitalized in this instance?
    • Done.
  • "When the fourth and final beta phase started on August 17" - of which year?
    • Done.
  • PlayStation 4 linked twice in Testing and release
    • Done.
  • I'd unlink RPGFan in Reception
    • Done.
  • Ref 41 is dead
  • Refs 88 and 89 need to be filled out
    • I had forgotten to reformat the refs. This should be done now.

Overall an excellent and comprehensive article. Once all of the minor issues are out of the way then this would have no problem passing. Good article on hold JAGUAR  22:20, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

I think I've addressed your above concerns. Axem Titanium (talk) 09:31, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. With all of the issues out of the way, this should be good to go. Good article JAGUAR  14:50, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the review! Axem Titanium (talk) 15:22, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

FFXIV: Heavensward's Reception and Scoring[edit]

The expansion pack FFXIV: HW had its own reception, scoring and reviews.. why hasn't all of that been added yet? Almkhrq (talk) 02:54, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

User:ProtoDrake and I are working on a draft for a separate article for Heavensward here if you're interested in contributing. Axem Titanium (talk) 18:11, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Rename page?[edit]

Square Enix is now calling it just "Final Fantasy XIV" or "Final Fantasy XIV Online" now going forward, no "A Realm Reborn". I believe the page should reflect this somehow. Brayden96 (talk) 18:54, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
