Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar’s was stunned by how welcoming FFXIV’s community is after joining a mass player gathering. 

Final Fantasy XIV has been enjoying a huge increase in popularity ever since an influx of new players have entered the game. In fact, things have gotten so hectic that the servers have been operating at full capacity. 

This is partly down to the current state of World of Warcraft’s latest Shadowlands expansion, which has left many fans looking for another MMO to sink their teeth into.

The streamer gets out of his car and prepares himself for battle, but he is quickly surprised by what awaits him. After adjusting his camera, Summit1g sees a huge army of friendly players welcoming him outside a castle. “Oh, sh*t look at that! Wow, ok that’s a lot of dudes on mounts.” 

Summit1g then slowly drove his way down the path towards the castle entrance, taking in the sheer number of players. “Thank you guys, wow, this is incredible. I appreciate this, this is super sick”. There were so many players that it appeared the game struggled to load them all in.
