And what, precisely, is wrong with the word "mount"? It's a standard English word for a riding animal. It has been used that way for over 5 CENTURIES.
So what, pray tell, is wrong with it?
Lol there's Absolutly nothing wrong with the word, its just where it now derives from in the MMO world, and to me what it show's where the player base is coming from, i'm not hitting out on any new players to the FF, i'm quite welcoming to the fact that FF is getting "Fresh blood" and people willing to taste the ambrosia that is Final Fantasy, the word mount and toon just makes me cringe relating to WOW, (yes i have played it, my bro still plays it, just was never my cup of tea) it was a personal statement, my own opinion, can't believe people went irate over my own thoughts, i did not nor did i intend to disrespect anyone with saying that lol.
A simple opinion now a days can set off a bomb. hence why it was in brackets, i was thinking aloud.
In the world of FF i have never heard anyone call a chocobo a mount, yes you mount them, but a chocobo has always been the only "mount" in the world of FF, so there was never any reason to name them otherwise.
