Can someone show me where they actually said it was coming, all I have seen was that they hadn't decided until they saw how the retainer system worked. (or doesn't as is the current case)
Don't point me to that locked door in Limsa Lominsa either, they could take that out in the next patch for all we know.
I'm surprised after so many years of FF11 you guys have such faith in SE.
Without regard to SE's history, there's two ways to approach any problem. You can either hope that it will be fixed or you can complain that it needs to be fixed. I've found the first to be far less stressful.
I have my fair share of complaints about the game, but yes, I do have faith in the developer. If I -honestly- believed that none of my concerns would ever get addressed, I'd quit playing.
I had a lot of complaints in closed beta that were resolved in open beta. I had a lot of complaints in open beta that were resolved in release. I'm pretty sure that not all of my concerns will be resolved; I'm sure that some of the things I'd like to see in XIV are things I will probably never get, but so long as I still see them improving the game, and so long as I still believe they will continue to improve it, I will continue to play.
Perhaps this is some elaborate way for wording "If you don't like it, leave" but honestly, the day I believe FFXIV will not improve features that are game breaking for me is the day I cancel my subscription. I quit WoW because (among other reasons) I had complaints about the game that I felt Blizzard would never do anything to resolve. I quit FFXI because (among other reasons) I had complaints about the game that I felt SE would never do anything to resolve.
Even if I have complaints about the way XIV works, so long as I at least have a reasonable belief that they will eventually be addressed, I will continue playing. If the game ever reaches a point where I have complaints that I feel will never be addressed, then that is the point at which I will bid farewell to Eorzea.
I won't lie and say that there's nothing about the game that really ****** me off. I've gone into a rant on here about at least two of them that I can think of off the top of my head (lack of AH and ****** payment options). In both cases, I'm hoping that SE will improve them in the future.
But in the end, as fun as +1ing may be, whining about my problems all day on the forums just raises my stress level unnecessarily, and wastes time I could be doing something else, like playing Minecraft, or Recettear, or UT3, or Fallout 3.
