I love it, this guy gets defaulted for pointing out what most of the players are furiously trying to keep from admitting to themselves.
Every honest (and needed) critique has some precooked response, often going back to "Don't like it? Don't play it!" as if that actually means or accomplishes something. If you think loving a game necessarily entails believing it lacks flaws, you're pathetically naive, and yes, FFXIV has plenty of them. An endless supply, as far as I can tell.
Take that terrain copypasta everyone likes to LOL away by saying that other games have it. It's such an issue in FFXIV more than other games because it's done heavy-handedly, because it's alarmingly obvious. There was no excuse for this level of amateur ten years ago.
And the weapon skills - yeah, I'm sure they threw some better looking ones in there later on. But to have tiers where every single WS is nigh identical. . .amateur. Just amateur. Why are they taking backward steps in design and game play? I'm very concerned, and I don't really care who rates me down for admitting it.

ok let no say this again once...
U have 20 dmg, u shoot 30 dmg, but if ur not RNG, u want HALF, with no time reload, so u get 10. but, BUT, u want no DRG since ur shooting, so its 30 dmg or 10?
