Yep, we're at it again! After a nice, relaxing summer off, we're coming back full-force with some pretty big improvements to the site! And we want your feedback about what should be included in the new update! Leading up to the 2.1 update, we've been spending a lot of time thinking about what makes FFXIVRealm the best community for the best MMO out there. With this update, we want to focus upon you, the community. Already a lot of improvements have been made behind the scenes in preparation for the launch of the update, including better responsiveness for mobile devices, front-end customization, and lots of new ways to interact with each other. All those little gremlins that exist across the site from the 2.0 updates will hopefully be fixed, and we will be preparing the site for creating even more new, original content. Over the next few weeks, we will be posting daily screenshots of the site's new look - yes, we're changing the theme once again, but this time, we think we've created a look you'll really enjoy. We'll also be periodically posting Community Polls to get your feedback about what you want to see in the Realm's largest update since launch, so make sure to check back often!!! To kick things off, here's the first screenshot of Realm 2.1. If you've been following our Facebook page, you will already be familiar with this neat little addition. You might have to look carefully to see what makes this something we're very excited to be offering you guys in the next update... Apologies for all the censorship in this screenshot. Don't want to give away too many surprises... We do need to fill each day this month with a new screenshot... So, check out the spoiler below for all the latest confirmed features of the new update. We'll be adding features to the list as soon as they are confirmed, which means, as soon as you guys guess what'll be in the update (randomly, or by guessing from a screenshot), we'll add it! Make sure to check back often to give your suggestions, find our latest community polls, and see what's been added to the update spoilers! And feel free to post your thoughts, opinions and suggestions. This update is all about us trying to tailor the site to you! FFXIVRealm 2.1 will be live at the end of October 2015!!!
