We Went Full FC For The Last Nier Raid

Patch 5.5 brought the conclusion of the Nier x FFXIV collaboration, with the last Alliance Raid of this expansion: The Tower at Paradigm’s Breach. For this exceptional event, the Company was able to achieve something amazing : a full FC run! On this Wednesday, 24 members aggregated and formed an O R B and saved Eorzea from the perils of a machine invasion and? little girls in red? and… public transportation?

The company has been very active recently with a lot of new comers, and we’re happy that so many of you wanted to join us for this exhilarating event. If you missed this week’s run, we’ll be back at it next week, with a special twist: a Chicken Run where everybody will bring their chicken suit (that you can get for free after a quick quest at Gridania with the Hatching-tide seasonal event)! More info on the Events page for our members!

And a big thanks to Loredana, Linea, S’eraia, Eliama, Kazih’a, F’eri and Aelin for their screenshots! Here’s a few:

We kindly ask our members to not take “blind run” as literally next time.
2b was delighted to have so many fans join here in her quest.
We suspect some members just came to show off their glam and frankly we’re all for it you’re all gorgeous.
It was a long run, some people needed to take a nap, and that’s okay.
… sometimes a lot of people needed a nap at the same time and that’s okay too.
A stray cat also joined us, please contact us if you know its owner.

Paranoid had its Musical Episode in FF XIV

Sunday was the day of The Bards and the Bees, a very special event that brought a large crowd to the mosh pit. Eva, our Grand Minister of Social Events, was joined by two extraordinary guest hosts, Cin and Misa, for a terrific musical game that put every participant’s geekiness to the (blind) test. For one evening, the basement of the company house was turned into a covid-friendly version of your favourite Friday night pub. In the spirit of fairness, every group was assigned its own Person Who Really Knows A Lot Of Song Titles, and the game could begin!

We played four rounds of Name that tune, for a total of 32 songs interpreted live on stage. Guided by Cin’s harp and Misa’s cheers, we re-explored our favourite themes from Final Fantasy XIV obviously, but also the FF franchise (from the Main theme of FF1 to Zanarkand), classic video games tunes (which saw the emergence of a suspiciously strong Bubble Bobble cult inside the company), and Disney as a bonus round for parents and/or children at heart.

As for all our social events, all members could also win a prize that ranged from rare minions to bardings to furnitures, to the always popular 1 million gil grand prize!

We were overjoyed to see so many members join the event, and we hope to see you all next time!
