So I keep wanting to play this game, but I cant stomach the $10 a month charge.

If I play It, Ill play it long enough to get the Platinum trophy on the PS4


Is it pretty alive still, or only specific servers?

am I going to be able to find people to play with/help me out if needed?

ya there is a ton of players in the game
when you pick a server on Primal/Crystal or Aether your char can go to any server located in that Server category your home server will be the one you pick

How important is the Subscription? I thought it was you could play till lvl 35 with having to pay? Is that true?

i believe you can play the first part of the game without a subscription but you are limited, no retainers can't join FC's (guild) and alot of other stuff you can't do without a subscription.

They recently increased it and you can play up to level 60 and through the first expansion Heavensward for free. It's actually a ton of free content and you could easily spend 100 hours getting through the free stuff.

As Fatal said, it's more of a single player experience though and you lose alot of the social options on a free account, but it at least lets you experience the gameplay and story.

You can use party finder to group for content which requires groups as your progress through the game, but you can't form groups manually with people, can't participate in any market board activity, have a 150K gil cap which is pretty low once you start getting into the first expansion, can't trade with people, can't message people, etc.

Alot of it is done to prevent bots/gil sellers from making tons of free accounts and farming gil and spamming people with messages for gil selling websites.

The game is very alive, it's the 2nd largest subscription MMO behind WoW and when Shadowbringers came out which is the most current expansion they actually hit peak subscription numbers.

Does it matter what Sever I choose? I still want to play, just not sure If I can justify the cost to the commitment
