If you've got proof that SE will fix these things (or some indication they are still improving the chatlog), then provide the proof. Don't troll this thread simply because you 'think' they'll fix it. They haven't changed the chatlog since it's inception.
Yes, I will compare this chatlog to FFXI's because it was more advanced than this chatlog. I'm quoting this from a player below me:
You've covered the main source of my confusion already, that is that SE seems to have completely ignored all of the things they learned from FFXI and started fresh, as if it was their first shot at an MMO.
Flamers and trolls, do understand that most of the frustration in players comes from the fact that SE implemented all of these things into FFXI over months of community complaints. But then they removed them from FFXIV, as if to restart the entire 'fixing' phase.
This is the main problem, as we cannot feel assured SE will re-fix these things in due time.
Furthermore, for the sake of this discussion:
I sincerely wish you do not bring up WoW.
Please do not tell us it will be fixed, when SE has shown no haste in the past for fixing things like this.
Do not tell us "its just a beta, it'll be fixed in seven days" if you have no reason to believe so.
Do not tell us to "stop crying" or "quit the game if you hate it so much"; it is rude and not appreciated.
Do not insult anyone who experiences strain after using the chatlog.
Do not act like this one issue ruins the entire game for us.
Do be constructive and understanding.
After much troll-avoiding -.- cause I'm too nice, here are my questions:
Why cant we:
-view the chatlog using a controller, like in ffxi?
-scroll through different chat tabs, like party, linkshell, etc like in ffxi and other MMOs? (We have to create these tabs on our own, which is fine, but we cannot access them via controller)
-see what the chatlog says in most bright environments due to the chatlog background being 100% transparent? (and why cant we change the background? so its not transparent?)
-change the text size, for those running higher resolutions who experience eyestrain?
-interact with the chatlog and click names, so we can easily blacklist gilseller-spammers, or /tell someone who's asking for help so we can provide help, or to add someone as a friend that you've been talking to, etc?
-when using a controller, must hit 'spacebar' to being typing. Also, must hit 'spacebar' before hitting control-p (or whatever) to begin typing to whomever.
