What I find sad is that there are still some people that feel they should have access to more content in this game than other people. Not because they have better skills or a better team, but because they have nothing else to do in their lives than sit for hours staring at darters, raptors, and elementals.
The playerbase has already shown that unless they make a ridiculous mob like PW or AV, a strategy will be out within days. You're right though. They should make all windows 2 hours, with a 50% drop rate. Oh, and only during prime time. Or, with what XIV looks like, slap fafnir on a guildlev, let everyone have an instanced crack at him. We'll have everyone running around in dalmaticas and ridills.
The problem is this: The people who dont have 'time' to get what they want complain about it. Because those who DO have time for it DON'T complain, SE only sees complaints. So now they're gonna cater to those who probably shouldnt have been playing XI in the first place. I have very low hopes for XIV. It's not SE's fault though, I believe they're actually listening. SE's a business afterall, and its bad business to cater to the minority (hard core gamer). Everyones trying to get a piece of WoW's pie, it'd be a poor decision to not try to.
