Play Final Fantasy XIVI had said before patch 4.3 came out that we were going to learn a fair bit about the future direction of Final Fantasy XIV from this patch, and I stand by that. It isn’t explicit, of course – it sort of couldn’t be – but there are definitely more hints about what happens next from this patch alone, simply by virtue of the fact that there had to be. After all, we’re wrapping up our problems at breakneck pace otherwise; we don’t want to be sitting here in November when the expansion is revealed without an idea of where we’re going, do we?

For a startup, offline events can get really expensive. In the past (especially when we were bootstrapping), we’ve often skipped exhibiting at events primarily because of the huge cost commitment and uncertain RoI. Just like the folks over at Groove and Buffer, we too believe in being transparent in our functionality which is why earlier we shared an in-depth description of how AdPushup raised its first angel investment.
