Sodux - he wasn't talking about the countermeasures taken for sp, he was talking about the division of exp. Skill Points are for class, Experience Points are for physical level. They're two totally different things.
Fortunately both were adressed in the patch, exp is now distributed to members who don't actually hit the mob (meaning you can heal, buff, or be attacking another enemy in the group) and sp is hopefully fixed to make sure you get what it said you get in a party. But they didn't increase the rate at which you get SP unfortunately >.>
I understood what he was talking about. I stated SP is like FFXI...
If you don't hit the mob, cure, etc.
don't expect any points. The points again in "theory" are based on individual performance not party performance. The performance for party ties into your PL (Physical Level) not Job Rank (your training your character in that specific job... why get paid for not doing it?)
