I'm very excited to share some news with you about the recent Fan Festival held in South Korea! While the Korean version of FFXIV launched back in August 2015 this was our very first Fan Festival in Korea! The event took place on October 21 and was attended by around 3,000 Warriors of Light.
Everyone was so enthusiastic and hyped up, which made it feel like the show was a huge success! Let's take a look at some of the exciting things attendees experienced.
Here we can see Yoshi-P watching (comfortably) over the rehearsals the day before the event.
Here Banri Oda and Koji Fox offer some free throw tips to Yoshi-P.
Yoshi-P getting serious now...
Yoshi-P could always be found shooting baskets whenever he found himself with free time during rehearsals (I think it became a problem at some point...)!
Let's move on to the day of the event!
The show kicked off with the Korean version of the Stormblood trailer. Shortly after, Yoshi-P and members of the Korean operations team made their appearance on stage.
They announced the release date for Patch 4.0 (December 19th!) and went over some exciting new features that will be available.
Aside from Yoshi-P, some other members of the development team attended the show as well! Of course Soken was there, and they were joined by main scenario writer Banri Oda and Koji Fox!
Here we can see Oda and Koji going over some hardcore lore related to Heavensward. The audience loved the details surrounding the language spoken by the dragons, Dragonspeak.
At the same time, the streaming booth featured Soken as a special guest! Everyone adored his antics and funny comments and the stories he had to share.
Here we can see the cosplay contest participants. Everyone's outfits were very high-quality and it makes me happy to see such creativity! The cosplay contest winner was someone dressed as Edda (The Tam-Tara version)! She carried Avere's head along with her, and also brought an invitation to their Eternal Bond ceremony written in Eorzean! Yoshi-P was very impressed to see how this cosplayer incorporated lore into their overall look.
Next up, the Feast tournament hit the stage with full... adrenaline! (See what I did there?)
The final match was tense and definitely hyped up the crowd!
And finally, the stage was set for The Primals to end things with a bang!
Their music mixed with the roaring cheers from the audience and echoed throughout the venue. All the Warriors of Light partied hard with their glow sticks lighting up the room.
Even before the encore, everyone was already shouting RISE! RISE! It was quite the experience and the band looked happy to oblige.
We would like to thank all the Warriors of Light in Korea who attended the event! And thanks to the operation teams for your hard work! We're planning to release a video footage of the event soon, so please look forward to it!
The team is already looking forward to the next Fan Festival in Korea! Thank you Seoul~!!
The eighteenth episode of DUTY COMMENCED is set for Wednesday, November 22nd! The North American Community team will be streaming from Leviathan on the Primal Data Center as they discuss Patch 4.15 and challenge the new PvP encounter, Rival Wings!
Read on for show details.

Video footage of every song performed can be yours to treasure forever. In addition, 10 selected songs will be available in both MP3 format and high-quality FLAC for maximum richness of sound.
Proceed to the Square Enix Store.
Ready your weapons─Season 6 of the Feast begins next week on Tuesday, November 21 with the release of patch 4.15!
Based on player feedback, the upcoming season will be shorter, scheduled to run until the release of patch 4.2.
Patch 4.15 is right around the corner (Nov. 21st!) and today I'd like to introduce the new PvP encounter, Rival Wings!
Rival Wings is large-scale PvP involving up to 48 combatants where participants are divided into two teams, the Falcons and the Ravens. Check out the awesome team emblems!
Let's touch on the rules just a bit so you have an understanding of how the matches play out.
The objective is to destroy the opponent's core, which sounds pretty simple.
However, the core is protected by a magitek field emanating from two towers, so your first objective will be to destroy these two towers.
In Rival Wings, combatants will not only fight on foot, but also by controlling powerful machina.
There are three types of machine available in battle, one which specializes against enemy players and other machina, one which excels at wreaking havoc upon structures, such as towers and cores. The final type are specializes in both aspects, and it's powerful enough to dominate opposing players and crush their structures! Using machina efficiently is the key to victory.
Aside from the player-controlled machina, there are also NPC mammets—clockwork soldiers programmed to seek out and destroy towers and cores as well.
Here we have a steam cannon, a powerful weapon which will prove useful in deterring enemy forces.
This next one is a power generator. Combatants from either team can take control of the generator giving them an advantage in battle.
There are various components involved to ensure victory in Rival Wings, so players will need to make effective use of them to destroy their opponent's core!
Similar to the Battle High buff in the Frontline, we're introducing a new buff in Rival Wings called Soaring. Unlike Battle High, the Soaring buff gives a buff to not only those who KO an opponent, but to their entire party. All party members' damage dealt and HP restored is increased, while also reducing damage taken. Therefore, healers have a better chance to utilize these useful new buffs to support their fellow party members!
Here are some images from the development team's playtest with two full teams of 24.
And just to be clear, when the dev. team hosts a playtest... they go all out against each other!
They also go after some of the key staff members like Moriguchi from the Japanese PvP stream who is a fairly easy target thanks to his moogle glamour. Whenever the dev. team spots him, they focus target him down.
Next, moving onto the rewards from Rival Wings!
Check out this Mooglefell (Moriguchi) being carried by this new mount, it's cute and cool at the same time! Before you ask "How does it look with other races?"...we got you covered! While we'll hold off on showing everything, here's another sneak peek for those interested.
Rival Wings arrives on Tuesday, November 21 with the release of Patch 4.15! Get ready to get your hands dirty, crush your opponents, and claim victory on the battlefield!
