Square Enix (Over-)Explains FFXIV’s Fatigue System

If you were concerned/upset/homicidal over Square’s rumored “Fatigue System” in Final Fantasy XIV, you weren’t alone. Enough MMORPG players have freaked the fuck out that Square made this 5-minute video explaining the damn thing. The gist of it is that while everybody gains levels at pretty much the same rate, hardcore players who put in the extra hours can get extra skills in different classes. Square went ahead and dubbed this “a very fair compromise,” so there’s no need for you have your own opinion on it or anything. I was getting ready to make a huge list of merits and faults about this system when I suddenly remembered I hate MMORPGs and wouldn’t play FFXIV with a gun to my head, so whatever. Thanks to Sean S. for the tip.
