Well that... sucks.
Also seeing as the discussion has gone astray from the original topic- I guess I'll continue this and address the point of "WoW bigotry." Personally, I don't understand why both communities (FFXI and WoW) can't coexist; but, I do think that based on the type of game play choices WoW players will make will lead to a separation of sorts. Most WoW players will choose to solo-level if that is a viable option, whereas most FF XI players will choose to party-level. Obviously, more "mingling" will occur between WoW players with other WoW players (same for FF XI players). Personally, I think that the game should be heavily group oriented to ensure that both gaming societies are required to work together from the early levels on wards rather than simply end-game when the possibility of "split societies" would be more prevalent.
While I get what your trying to say The choices "wow" players make wont divide us. Its this branding of people as some stereotyped "WoW"player.
I played wow and I prefered leveling in groups. As often as I could Id form a party and go running instances for xp and loot. If I couldn't find a party id solo, something I wish I could have done in ffxi. There is no stereotypical WoW playter. Theres Doctors, Lawyers, college students, highschool students, children, housewives, some who love to rp on pve severs some who want to gank noobs all day in pvp servers, others do the raid content as soon as it comes out raiding day and night, some only play on the weekends etc etc etc. Any whos actually ever played wow for some length of time knows this.
I dont even like wow but this crazy anti wow sentiment here has me defending it.
