Join the Wolf Pups Den if you are new to PvP and looking to improve.
<p>This <em>Aether League Portraits</em> series wouldn't be complete without an interview from the man behind the League. Scyn Sovereign has been working on this project for months after having the initial idea - since then, the concept has gone through changes, as has the PvP in FFXIV at large, but on the eve of the official Aether League start date, we can take the time to look back and be proud of what was accomplished. For the 5th and final installment of the series, Volene had the chance to meet with Scyn to talk about the creation of the league, his expectations of it then and now, and his partici...</p>
<p>Also known as Mateo, Xy Xx is one of the most versatile members of the community. Having participated in all modes as a player, he also played a support role in community events and will keep this going in the Aether League. Volene had the chance to benefit from his unique insight and ask him a few questions for the 4th installment of <em>Aether League Portraits</em>.</p> <p><strong>Volene: Hi Mateo! I wanted to start by saying thank you for accepting this interview, it’s really nice of you.</strong></p> <p>Xy Xx: Thanks for doing this! Super entertaining to read and see all the different insights.</p> <p><strong>Q: Thank you! So, could you st...</strong></p>
<p>As far as the PvP community goes, few players are more renowned than Angelus Demonus. Known for such things as soloing PotD and enemy tanks alike, hosting the largest known PvP illegal immigration network on Aether, and proudly causing team wipes since 1872, the iconic Summoner gracefully accepted Volene's invitation to take part in our <em>Aether League Portraits</em> series. This third interview aims to show Angelus's outlook as a team leader and Light Party veteran.</p> <p><strong>Volene: First things first, thank you for accepting this interview, it’s much appreciated!</strong></p> <p>Angelus: Of course!</p> <p><strong>Q: Just to start us of...</strong></p>
<p>The second installment of our <em>Aether League Portraits</em> series takes us elsewhere entirely. While, ultimately, community events and tournaments like the Aethercup and the Aether League are all about high-level play, there is a lot of work that takes place behind the scenes in order to make them happen. Organization, branding, increasing interest, viewership and participation are all vital parts of any successful event.</p> <p>With that in mind, we sought out Ice Phoenix for our next interview. Having been involved in the PvP community for years, she has taken on a lot of the aforementioned support w...</p>
To kick off this interview series, Volene had the chance to interview Nex Cross, a dominant player and one with a strong case as the best Monk in the game throughout Heavensward. After he took Aether's top rank in seasons 1 and 3 solo queue, Nex hasn't been seen much in Feast outside of his participation in the Aethercup tournament, but he will return to compete in the Aether League alongside team ECF.

<p>About a week ago, we got our first glimpse at the 4.1 Patch notes, and the PvP changes that were to come with them. Then on Tuesday, we got a hands on look at how those changes played out. Some were good, others not so much. We've also got an official post up on the official forums from GM Zhexos. So we're going to take a minute in this here post to go over the changes, go over what Zhexos has to say, and express a bit of our opinions based off of our own knowledge and experience. </p> <h1>Job Changes:</h1> <p>First up, there were some pretty huge changes to several jobs. Some great buffs, and minor nerfs.</p> <p><img src="/storage/app/media/4.1%20patch/chrome_2017-10-14_22-34-00.png" alt="" /></p> <p>W...</p>

The EU community team will be holding a streaming event on Ragnarok this week. Tune in and you will have a chance to win a Fangs or Claws T-shirt!
Prepare yourselves, patch 4.1, The Legend Returns, will be coming in early October. The new PvP 24v24 content will be locked until 4.15, so grind out your last bit of Feast rating first! When 4.1 hits, you will be able to reunite with your friends, who may have server transferred at Stormblood launch, with the new cross-world tool.

Frosty, aka Mr. MogTalk, asked YoshiP some excellent PvP related questions in an interview he released tonight. He asks about the design process, bringing light party back, the lack of moderation in ranked matches, and if they will re-enable the ability to chat; to name a few.
