I'm pretty sure if Square-Enix replaced all the monsters with elephants featuring pink polkadots, made the starting cities gypsy camps, and replaced all skills in the game with poking he (the OP) would still probably salute Square-Enix for being different.
Being different is good. Stupid ideas that make most people cringe is not good. These are thousands of people who are complaining like ferocious beasts that they do not like this system. The ratio of hate versus support on the beta forums is like 100/0.5. That's not good. That's not a good way to be different.
If they change it, fantastic. If they explain it more and how to alleviate it, fantastic. If it's how everyone currently imagines it to be, the game's in big trouble.
I could swear that if people didn't act upon their "stupid ideas" their would not have been space travel, no peanut butter, no electricity, the fundamentals of gravity, we have to be arguing with teenagers here, there's no flipping way and full grown(mentally) adult would be arguing these points.
