We are all going to play FFXIV right? I mean, SE already has everyone's cash in their pockets if they are posting here?
The only question being 'how long will we keep paying'.
So how about less ******** and a little more feedback on what we would like? We know they sometimes skim threads looking for ideas.
I think FFXI's last 3 years were full of testing for what would work with the FF online community, and the changes made in the last couple of years were tests to see what would be popular. Sorry if you quit the game, or are primarily a WOW, AOC, WAR, etc player. The last few years have seen many MAJOR changes in FFXI.
Most of the complaints about FFXI I have seen posted here are dated ie: 'No way to play with your friends of other levels.' 'Beastmen never invaded a city' 'I spent too long lfp' 'not enough solo play'.
Some of the complaints were ignored by SE because they had fundamentally affected FFXI, but they also recognized the problem and probably learned from it, but it was simply too late to change in FFXI without completely rewriting the game. IE: 'Blink tanks/utsusemi is broken' 'Burn parties are broken' 'Gear swapping is broken'
'Gear swapping broken' leading to 'not enough inventory'... even though the actual amount of inventory available to your character is not that much different from other MMOs, it was just the amount you needed to have at any given moment, stemming from the gear swap problems.
They already have our cash for at least 2-3 months, so lets focus on feedback. I saw a number of good threads in this forum die in order to be replaced by new threads purely focused on complaints, or how we should swim, or how we should eat, or how we should be.........
actually just let this thread die too. It is just another in a sea of useless crap that will inevitably replace a thread that actually had good ideas.
But they already have our cash right? If you had no intent of playing FFXIV then why did you read this forum?
