No idea if this was brought up before, but does anyone else find it slightly annoying that SE took the time to make up some symbolic language and added unreadable blurbs to the map rather than just making it readable and informative?

Yes, we've had this discussion already. I think Pikko was the one who brought it up.

Ah. Would like to read that. Spose I'll look for it. Though searching for 'map text' really isn't too specific.

Thank you for the link.

...and wow. It is in English, though I don't really feel so bad for not noticing.

hehe I was already finding it so I could be all snarky and "no, it's just you and these other few people" but then you guys had to post while I was looking and ruin my fun. Ratedowns for all! >:O

^^

(Personally I'm mixed on it, but at least they do usually have the important points of interest marked in English. The Eorzean isn't that hard to read after a little practice, just a matter of whether you're up for bothering. Adds flavor, but isn't immediately obvious what it says. But at the same time, does it really matter what the words are? Would it be better/worse to be complete gibberish? *shrug*)
