Half-assed expansions, you say?
Like a certain FFXI expansion that launched with 3 story quests that took 4 1/2 years to get any meaningful content aside from one battle event?
Like another certain FFXI expansion that players were asking in interviews when the storyline was going to end 1 1/2 years after it launched?
We put up with that on XI because there was little competition and we were long since addicted to the game by that point, since most XIV players use XI as an excuse for everything (XI never went f2p hence XIV will never go free to play!) maybe they will half *** XIV expansions too and do that horrible bare bones exp pack and dribble out content over the years yeah. As I said, many players seem ok with small worlds so small expansions should be ok here it seems.
I think you're mad because you don't see the writing on the wall, or just refuse to acknowledge it, in a bias to try to turn XIV players against their own game.
The world size is irrelevant. I don't care if Rift had a 'bigger' world at launch. I don't care if ANY game had a physically larger world at launch. Neither do most people out in the world except, for instance, people trying to make an argument against a game and start doing so by grabbing at any straws they can find and expounding them.
How it's taking you 1,907 posts as a three-starred Scholar to figure this out is beyond me. You are walking into a Ford club and telling everyone that Ford sucks and to buy a Chevy instead. Then you're getting mad when the club turns on you. How did you expect people would react?
Posting what you posted in a WoW forum as an argument against XIV would be one thing. Nobody there has a love for XIV. Posting against XIV in a XIV community? It simply blows my mind when people expect not to be lit up on the boards after doing so.
That'd be like me coming to your house and telling you your wife is f'ing ugly. You'd be pissed. You're a liar if you say you wouldn't be.
no that chevy exmple or ugly wife example you gave is onyhow blind fanboys react. noing is perfect if you pointed out an inperfection in something i liked and it were true id admit it. but that doesnt mean ill jump ontowhatever lacks that imperfection. for example if you told me my wife was ugly and she acually was i wouldnt get mad at all infact id tell you "youre right she isnt the best looking woman ive ever seen or dated. i could name hundreds that look better. but i didnt marry her for her looks. if i wantd something that was just good to look at i can find that in a magazine or tv"
I can concede with that, as you are right -- Better to accept and move on than to deny. In this case I don't know for a fact that the claim is true, though, nor is there a normal basis of measurement. The argument also doesn't consider what's inside said world. It's a blanket statement of negativity with no defined purpose, leaving community members to extrapolate that it's another 'FFXIV Sucks' thread.
To that end the OP hasn't sufficiently backed up his argument with factual evidence or a defined purpose of any kind, but is still quite upset at the reaction.
I feel that this is another thread that could and should be locked or nuked, but then again, I'm a BFG fan. My feelings on this are strictly based on a lack of support and lack of direction.
