I don't think FFXI was turn based either.
If you ever played previous FF titles, you know that Square has messed around with it in the past quite a few times.
It might of been "Turn Based" at some point in time, I don't know, perhaps FF1 or FF2, I'm not really sure.
But Square introduced ATB (Active Time Battle, Charge Time Battle, Conditional Turn-Based Battle, Active Dimension Battle and Command Synergy Battle.
According to the FF wikia, FF14 is considered to be part of the RTB system, FF11 as well.
If anything, the closest thing that is similar to FF11 and FF14 RTB system is FF12's Active Dimension Battle system.
But in any case, neither FF11 nor FF14 is "Turn Based".
Gamers should have done their own extensive research before using words and phrases they do not understand completely. You would have to define the various systems Can's and Can'ts, before you can make a judgement on which category this game belongs to.
