I'm looking at surplus as a new challenge. Something to master just like the best way to max xp in a party was. What's the best mobs to kill, wheres the safest place to camp, does barfira reduce gob bomb? They were all challenges we learned to deal with and knew nothing about.

I think its great to have something in the game that is different from the same boring *** grind. No one knows when the timer starts or if the statement was for beta and may change in release. Since he was just talking about beta before this. Open beta is coming up and I'm more then sure this will be in it. If they feel it needs to be adjusted afterwards then they'll do that. Also we don't know what saved surplus is. "Any experience earned past that point is saved as “surplus.” There is surplus for each class, and if you begin to see it please consider playing another class and adjust accordingly." This might become bonus exp next time you go to level that job.

To all you crybabies that say if surplus stays you're leaving. BYE BYE WE LUV U!!! Us real gamers are playing the game Square Enix is making and not the one you guys think they should make. If you so badly want a game to do all the things you want to do on. Then get out of your parents basement go to school and learn how to make games and make your own.

I think having something against a restriction being placed on a service you are paying for has more merit than simply being a crybaby. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to be spoonfed something I don't like just because it has a shiny SE logo on it. I've been playing the beta and I truly enjoy the game, but I'd rather not be told that I can only play something for a set amount of time... especially when I'm paying about 28 dollars a month for my fiance and I to play.

Also, protip: if you have a point you'd like people to hear, don't cap it off by hurling insults and wild generalizations. Half the members on this forum are adults and have jobs, so now you just look silly.

Isn't this pretty much the exact same post you had on another thread? Stop being ignorant. Just because I want to play FFXIV doesn't mean I have to like every aspect of it.

Well, I like to take my time. I don't want to have to worry about missing out on exp because I didn't have or care to have this kind of information and end up "wasting" time doing something else. I don't want to be concerned that I'm maximizing my playtime and getting the most out of the time I choose to play. I'd like to have it not bother me and forget about it but I can't be the only one who thinks that something like this would always be in the back of my mind.

Yea, but the iPhone one was the first [that I'm aware of] The guy that made it almost lost his job with Best Buy over it ;)
