Not excited about FFXIV (was forum=10)Follow

Imp, I know we're friends, but I really wish you'd listen to me. I've been telling you for years that ******** about ratings on Alla just makes people mess with them more. You need to 1) stop posting complaints about RMT and suspected RMT, and 2) not get butthurt when people flame what you've got to say. Also, it's to be expected that you got the mixed response that you did when posting this topic here here instead of the FFXIV forum.

If you're interested in info about FFXIV, I'd say check the thread about it on our LS forums and also check out the then main Alla FFXIV new page and these threads. They are a little old, but they have a lot of leaked alpha pics.

FFXIV Closed Alpha/Beta Discussion

Seriously though. Worrying about Alla ratings is so 2004. Anyone who posts regularly turns off their filters because we know this and because a lot of longtime posters have permanently low ratings that get sub-defaulted a lot when people start pressing arrows.

EDIT: Spelling; and fixing a link

Imp will probably have had an even worse respondse at the FFXIV forum. Coming over to cry that FFXIV sucks with as argument that there aren't any videos, deserves nothing less. There are loads of videos out there. He didn't do his homework. And besides that: even if he still didn't like it, why come complain to people who do like it. Leave them alone.

Hey Alt, I figured you'd scold me again, and I'm thanking you for it. Honestly, I recently retrieved my Alla login after I stopped posting here a few years ago, because I felt everybody was out to get me, I kept getting rated down whenever I tried to express my opinion, and I really don't care about the rating system, and I tried ignoring it again but sometimes I post stuff hoping to get a laugh out of it, or a sincere opinion/feedback, and all I get is negative replies, some people are just natural jerks and it's frustrating. I just don't see the point of picking on me because I don't wear the best gear, it was totally uncalled for, but whatever, people get under my skin easily and I'm aware of it. Alla forums remind of me WoW: too many people on it, and the majority of people are e-thugs.
So anyway, I just have to desensitize a little.

As far as the gear comments, get used to it. As someone who only gets to play an hour or two a week who just restarted after not playing for years (other than playing for about a month last summer), you're just going to be considered kinda gimpy by most people who check you whether it's on the forums or in-game. Myself, I'm not geared super great either, but I know it and I try to improve even if it's a slow process. If someone comments on it, I'll just say I'm working on it and leave it at that.

You're right though, the number one thing you can do here or elsewhere is not let stuff get under your skin. People like Phil and Rog and Nilatai are all oldtime posters who have offered a lot of good advice to people over the years, but they sometimes come off as cynical or grumpy old bastards because they've seen the same posts and arguments many times already. It's nothing personal.

I'm actually kind of excited for FF XIV mainly becuz im new to FF XI so i haven't had the full taste of an online Final Fantasy i guess? The only thing that makes me real curious about FF XIV is how your weapon decides ur job. But the combat looks alot better imho.

Borrowing liberally from the BBC, I see. ;)

I'm definitely interested in trying XIV, but I wouldn't go so far as to say that I'm excited about it. I don't have dreams about it or anything.

Okay, once, but it was about getting into the beta, so it doesn't really count, right? Right?

I play once or twice a week, 3 times at most, and only for an hour or so, I used this time to level other jobs, unless I'm off then I can play for at least 6-7 hours if I want to, as long as my girlfriend is at work, so it would take me at least 4-5 months to get the item, which by then will be gimped because something else would be better. I'll stick with the Errant piece.

Hmmmmm.

I know where your coming from, OP.
MMOs never really quite have the same charm after the first. I'm not sure what it is exactly, maybe we are just getting older, maybe the whole genre's gotten too comfortable now that it's past the honeymoon phase, maybe the magic of oz unravels the minute you spy the grind behind the curtain.

Whatever it is, it's always sad to leave your first MMO and start the cycle of hopeful optimism and jaded cynicism. It's probably wise to put it off as long as humanely possible.

But, I don't quite know why your so behaving as though you've spoken something bold.
It's not as though we're a bunch of zealots who couldn't possibly fathom another human being with an opinion. Lord knows, we're so critical of this game and it's management someone not liking it based on mere preference seems downright benevolent in comparison. :p

If your happy where you are, more power to you. :3
