Ever since talk of the Surplus system started, I've seen these forums turning into ugly "Fanboy Troll" forums..

These boards used to be fun, helpful, and generally a 'nicer' place to post, but lately, I've been seeing more and more hateful, negative posts and name calling.

I used to come to these boards with all the other "addicts" for the latest news and interesting posts, but from seeing what it's becoming, I think I'm gonna stay away from these boards for a while, at least until the trolls go back under their bridges.

Hope to see some of ya in the funny pages.

People are going to disagree, and rate you down. While the debate is heated, it is what the latest news is in the ffxiv world. While I certainly don't see this thing like others do, I'm tired of seeing new threads pop up about it. Gogo all encompassing sticky, and then explode it when the issue is cleared/resolved/released that way and oh well deal with it ?

Yeah, sadly the worst part is that no matter how polite and well thought out your posts and your opinions are, you WILL be rated down by someone for even having an opinion.

It's called controversial decision-making (...and lack of official information / overabundance of potential misinterpretation :v). This is what it breeds: conflict.

How about I bump my old "I WANT MALE MIQO'TES NAO!1!!!" thread? :D Give us something new to rant about rationally and intellectually discuss...

It will likely blow over when more info is release regarding the system. There had been many system that has strong negative opinions in the past, but this one is worst cos without sufficent information (and beta3 end b4 anyone could test anything) its hard for us postive thinkers to set up a good agrument expect "its still under testing".

P.S: Postive thinking doesn't make me a fanboy

I'm glad people are getting heated over this issue, it's not a small issue, it's going to effect how mostly everyone plays this game. It's certainly lot better to complain about something so potentially impacting than people complaining about not being able to play a male Mi'qote.

It also shows that the FF player base are unwilling to be spoon fed excrement, though, it does get a bit too harsh now and then.

EDIT: I didn't read anything other than the OP's post when I typed this.
