The only thing that has really been a nuisance (aside from losing active quests upon crashing) is that whether you're crafting, gathering, doing a quest, or just looking in someone's bazaar you have like a 3 second window to type before it closes and you have to rush and get it in again. There's no reason why you shouldn't be able to type a whopping 2 line limit without getting interrupted by every single action there is out there.. That annoys the *#$U#$ outta me!

Agreed, the chat interface sucks.

It's because SE put even the basic actions as a server > server interaction, so when the refresh happens it refreshes everything you're doing. It's like they put very very little clientside this time around. This is the one thing that definitely needs to change.

Chat is awful, no opacity no real customization. System Messages for me are bunched in with System Messages from others. So if I wanted to turn off just other players crafting I wouldn't be able to. I also hate that there is such a small limit to chat. I have to spam my linkshell if i have something to say greater then 1 medium sized sentance.

This is all about control. By having everything server side it can't be modified by outside parties. Means everything has to work off of the screen. Bots actually have to move the mouse and click the mob as opposed to just sending the server a message that mob 23316 has been targeted. Fish bots actually have to fight the mob using the mini game instead of just sending the "I Win" command to the server.

They're trying to prevent the economic problems bots created in XI, but they're doing it in an *** backwards way. No AH means bots can't effectively undercut everyone on the server, corner a market, or mass produce items with AH materials. Client side interface means all bot actions have to be done visually, which is much slower and more difficult to program. FFXIApp couldn't be created for this game, for example. Note they took the legal route against Windower because nothing they can program could prevent that.

They're the SONY of the software world, it's their way or no way and it's going to bite them in the ***.

Chat is too basic. In my linkshell we are using googletalk and Ventrillo.

Also, be careful trying to Chat and Craft at same time, the actions intefere with each other lol

Why is its so quite sometimes, because people are busy crafting and terrified of chat inteference!
