Final Fantasy 14's Patch 6.1 introduced radical changes to its PvP system, including the new Crystalline Conflict mode. Now, Final Fantasy 14's first season of Crystalline Conflict is coming to an end–meaning the first ever batch of rewards will be handed out soon.
Crystalline Conflict is Final Fantasy 14’s new fast-paced 5v5 PvP mode which focuses on tight conflicts while pushing a crystal payload into enemy territory. It also has a Ranked mode, where players can compete with others to earn rewards at the end of the Crystalline Conflict season.
Players will have until Final Fantasy 14 goes down for maintenance late Monday, July 4 to raise their rank in Final Fantasy 14's Crystalline Conflict mode. In addition to the launch of Patch 6.18, Tuesday, July 5 will also be when the results for Crystalline Conflict Season 1 are announced, as well as beginning of Season 2. All ranking players will receive their rewards for Season 1, a bounty of Trophy Crystals, as well as a background, frame, and an accent for Adventure Plates according to the earned rank: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, or Crystal. The best players on each Data Center score unique Adventure Plate kits, with a special version for the top 100, 30, and 1st player.
It is important to note that the end of Final Fantasy 14’s Crystalline Conflict Season 1 is not the end of PvP Series 1. PvP Series 1, which awards emotes, cosmetics, Trophy Crystals and more, should last until 6.2, which is over a month away. Once Series 2 begins, players should be able to purchase Series 1 rewards they missed with Trophy Crystals.
Final Fantasy 14 fans are excited to see where their rankings fall in Crystalline Conflict Season 1. The new PvP mode has been extremely popular, bringing unprecedented numbers of players to the formerly-neglected corner of the game. This is the first time players will be able to acquire these stylish Adventure Plate cosmetics in Final Fantasy 14 as well, meaning players will be able to further decorate their PvP calling cards with proof of their prowess.
Patch 6.18 also heralds the long-awaited Data Center Travel system in Final Fantasy 14, which will allow players to visit any Data Centers in their region of the world. Additionally, Final Fantasy 14 recently announced its 71st Live Letter from the Producer, which will be discussing Patch 6.2. The next major content patch is set to include additional Main Scenario Quests, a continuation of the high-difficulty Pandaemonium Raid, new Extreme trials, and more. Players can expect Final Fantasy 14 Patch 6.2 to arrive some time in August.
Final Fantasy 14 is available now for PC, PS4, and PS5.
