Final Fantasy XIV Director Naoki Yoshida gave a thoughtful speech about the perceived rivalry between World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy.
Naoki doesn't appreciate people dunking on WoW, according to PC Gamer. "Without World of Warcraft, A Realm Reborn wouldn't exist. World of Warcraft was the game we constantly looked up to," Yoshida said.
He also said that their goal was to recreate a Final Fantasy version of WoW, so claiming one game won over the other is "off the base".
Yoshida also touched upon the subject of subscriber counts, claiming "there's no way" Square Enix could compete with WoW's peak 12 million paid subscribers.
There's a video of Yoshida talking about World of Warcraft. It has been translated by blluist. You must enable subtitles for the translation.

It's time to look at Mythic DPS popularity in Shadowlands Season 2.
DATA RELIABILITY: The data used in this article comes from benched.me. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7 plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather the data.
This Week's Affixes (Week of July 27)
The following affixes are active this week.
Fortified Bolstering Quaking Tormented Total Runs Recorded
Here are all the runs recorded since Mythic Season 2 started. We use the data further to determine the most popular ranged and melee DPS specializations.
Most Popular Melee DPS for Mythic+
The most popular melee DPS with over 730K runs is Havoc Demon Hunter. The second is Fury Warrior (527K runs). The third is Outlaw Rogue (339K runs). The least popular melee DPS is Survival Hunter with just 58K runs completed so far in Season 2.
1st: Havoc Demon Hunter - 737,977 runs 2nd: Fury Warrior - 527,147 runs 3rd: Outlaw Rogue - 339,161 runs 4th: Windwalker Monk - 330,379 runs 5th: Unholy Death Knight - 276,603 runs 6th: Retribution Paladin - 228,426 runs 7th: Arms Warrior - 184,792 runs 8th: Assassination Rogue - 154,780 runs 9th: Enhancement Shaman - 144,617 runs 10th: Subtlety Rogue - 144,495 runs 11th: Frost Death Knight - 101,389 runs 12th: Feral Druid - 64,595 runs 13th: Survival Hunter - 58,256 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
The meta starts kicking in once rewards are no longer relevant. In other words, when you pass the level needed for the Great Vault reward. That's where casuals stop playing, and dedicated pushers (and the metaclasses they play) take over the population.
Certain non-meta specializations stay stable (or even gain share) in mid-range keys.
Total Runs By Spec and Key Level
Most Popular Ranged DPS for Mythic+
The most popular ranged DPS so far is Frost Mage, followed by Marksmanship Hunter, and Balance Druid. The least favorite one is Affliction Warlock. You can find the exact numbers below.

Total Runs By Spec and Key Level
We have a very classic MS paint map and route for the Korthia rift treasures, as asder34s and his fellow redditors share their favorite/optimal ways of checking all the spots!
In the tried and true tradition of just throwing something together in paint, here's the masterpiece in red:
We also have some additional helpful comments and tips if you're going to be trying this out:
On getting from point 2 to 3:
Hearthstone or wormhole, then run. - asder34s
On an alternate route within this one:
Alternatively, you can goblin glider from 2 to 7 and then head over to 5. - PurplePudding
On the chest on the island:
As far as I can tell. You wanna start on the island always if you can to kill Yorik too. - PurplePudding
While this may not be the perfect or ultimate route, it's better than just running around aimlessly hoping to bump into one. Let us know if it helped!
Darkmoon Faire has returned for a week! Make sure to use the +10% reputation/experience buff, and don't forget about Profession skill-up quests too!
10% WHEE! Buff
The buff increases Experience and Reputation gains by 10% for 1 hour, and we recommend you to turn in weekly quests only after you have the buff for extra reputation. The buff's great for farming reputation beyond Exalted for Paragon reputation rewards.
The buff also increases reputation gains with the Death's Advance faction located in Korthia. Unfortunately, it won't work with The Archivist's Codex faction.
If you're still missing skill points to max out your Professions, do note that the Darkmoon Faire Profession quests can grant you 5 skill points, so head over to Darkmoon Island to get them.
Inky Black Potions
Don't forget to stock up on Inky Black Potion to enjoy dark mode in Shadowlands and other regions! Here's a showcase of Bastion. Image courtesy of Reddit user nasKo_zomboid.
