I wonder if you can quit a game that isn't even there yet. Quite pathetic, you may say. And yes, you can have my stuff... wait. There isn't yet any there.
Be that as it is, I need this as a sort of spiritual hygene. I feel I need to wash myself of the dirt, ash from flaming and other less than healthy substances my mind has caught while dealing with TORXIV.
You know, I am a Star WarsFinal Fantasy fan as long as SWFF exists. And yes, while we all have our different approaches and we all love different things about Star War Final Fantasy, I always felt, what made our fandom great was, everyone could be who or what he wanted. We didn't have any prejudices against anyone's personal approach to Star WarsFinal Fantasy. For me, SWFF, as in contrast to Star TrekWoW, always mean a vast galaxy, tens of thousands of worlds and intelligent species, an endless plethora of really different settings. Not like TrekWoW, where essentially all aliens are humans with odd ears or foreheads and all cultures are just a copy of some earth historical cultre. No, SWFF was dirty, diverse and dark.
SWTORFinal Fantasy XIV is none of it. It's bright coloured like WOW in spaceEorzea, it's narrow and streamlined at every possible way. Now for two years I tried to fight for a better SWTORXIV. And while sure not every single wish can be manifested, I am just DONE with the arrogance of the developers and the arrogance of the fans. There comes a time and point when you realize, this game is not for you and never will. It is a sort of a heartbreaking realization for me, since SWFF is my greatest fandom for 2520 years, and I dived into the depths of everything SWFF for a long time. I feel sort of like the old Jolee Bindo, when he was asked why he left the Jedi Order, and Jolee answered: "It left me." And so it is with TORXIV. SWTORXIV developed into some beast, I don't feel at home anymore.
The list of things TORXIV does NOT have did grow considerably faster than the list of things we know we CAN do. It's like cutting a dream away, slice by slice, until there is nothing left by the shell of a SWFF game. I am too tired to go into all the details. The cuts and limitations have been discussed enough, and after 4-5 years of MMOs with broken promises, of ignoring their fans and endlessly making us wait for the "all made nice miracle patch", I am just tired and worn out. I trusted game companies time and again, always buying the games with the hope they will make it better later. They never did. They took the money and essentially ran off with it. In every single case of the last MMORPGs published the last few years, and I can't take that sort of disappointment anymore. Not in Star Wars.Final Fantasy.

So I am taking my leave from this game. I won't but it. You, BiowareSE, have cut down the great dream of Star WarsFinal Fantasy and narrowed it to the one strength you undeniably have: storytelling. And for me, that is just not good enough. You never should have decided to make a MMO in the first place, because in my very personal opinion, you have no clue what makes a MMO. What you are doing is the same Cryptic did with Champions and STO. You know the IP hype alone with pay via the box sales, give or take a few lifetimers and some months keeping people with promises, and then you have your share. Star WarsFinal FAntasy doesn't mean heck to you, and I am sorry to say, you never ever should have gotten that IP into your hands. Seeing how you broke this great fantasy is indeed heartbreaking for a SWFF fan like me. In the end, it leaves me with bitterness and the sour taste of another mediocre MMO, and SWFF really would have deserved a greater vision than the narrow human-only-storytelling Procrustes Bed you are making of it. Your vision is narrow, and reading such arrogant wording like Mr. EricksonTanaka ("we know better that people can't relate to freak charactersdon't like flying or jumping") just shows me you have zero humility towards the IP and you have that same arrogance which was the downfall of all your predessecors in MMOs.
Fine. Have it your way. But your way of making Star WarsFinal Fantasy isn't mine.t






This was another person's rant in the SW forums, and a joke obviously.

Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combina--OH wait, not Star Trek.

Funny how that works though.

I continue to be amazed at what people will rate down for. For me, this is a rate up just to keep it from sub default so your opinion can be expressed.

I figured it was a joke... others apparently didn't from the obviously massive rate downs. Silly people.
