NEW PVP MODE ‘RIVAL WINGS’ COMES TO FINAL FANTASY XIV ONLINE WITH PATCH 4.15
Performance Actions for Bard Brings New Roleplaying Experience
LOS ANGELES (November 21, 2017)FINAL FANTASY® XIV Online continues to provide new content to players with today’s release of Patch 4.15. This update introduces a new PvP mode, in which two teams compete in 24-v-24 player combat with a brand-new ruleset. The Patch also introduces bard-specific “Performance Actions,” in addition to new mounts and items.

In Rival Wings, teams compete to destroy the core within their opponent’s base, which is heavily protected by a magitek field. In order to deactivate this field and access the core, players must first destroy two enemy towers while defending their own towers from mammet soldier NPCs. Teams may also take control of goblin machina after fulfilling certain conditions, which can effectively eliminate enemy structures and players.



Emblems of Each Rival Wings Team: The Falcons and Raven


Today’s launch of Patch 4.15 also marks the start of Season 6 of The Feast PvP, which will run until the release of Patch 4.2. Players can strive for the top of the rankings to earn exciting rewards. Performance actions for bards, which also arrives in Patch 4.15, is the latest roleplaying feature in FINAL FANTASY XIV. After completing a new quest, bards may utilize these new actions to create their own masterpiece and bring the realm to life with the sound of music.

24 vs 24 that seems nice. I just hope lagging wont be a problem.
It isn't. As long as your internet connection is fast and your pc got high specs. I could compare this one with DOTA, minus the creeps of course. It's very fun, exciting and challenging as you worry not only your opponents, but also summons and machinas which are very difficult to deal with.

And mind you bro, this one ain't nice, its actually GREAT!!!

How good is PVP in this game, actually ? Is it any good ?
I haven't played MMORPGs much, I'm not a very "competitive" person, but I'm still curious.

I am quite surprised that the minimum OS is Windows 7 still. A lot of software and applications require Windows 8 and higher from what I used. However, is 60 GB a lot of storage for a software?

I did say that the game has been out for quite some time. 60 GB is typical for games these days, and won't really be a problem for most people if they install the game on hard drive. It might be a problem for those using SSD's, as those are still really low capacity ( up to 512 GB, but those are very expensive so most people have lower capacity ones ).

No matter how many times it may be new or introduced the whole 24 on 24 is always exciting for me. It does depend on the others of course but if you get a good group that can lead to some good times.
