dude, nobody likes this game.
You are provably wrong... clearly
the critics dont like it. most of the fans dont like it. even the JP dont like it. my LS and my sister LS dont like it, (out of close to 80 players i can count on two hands how many people ive spoken to that are actually considering playing after the trial)
That's all true, but you're speaking too generally. You can't possibly have a sample of enough fans to say that "most" of them don't like it, there are obviously some who do, there are some JP who like it.. Are there a large number who don't? Yes, but consider the terms you're using when you're speaking about groups of people
and then, when we leave, and the markets go into even more sh*t because there arent as many crafters putting out mats into the populous, more ppl will get upset/frustrated/annoyed. and then more ppl wont like it as well.
Prophecy is not a profession choice I recommend for people who are not actually prophets.
You have no idea what will happen in the next few months... for that matter neither do I, that's the beauty of linear time.
hey if you want to spend years bent over a random tool pushing enter all day every day, and there are some that do i suppose, then yeah i guess a few of you will be just fine.
And some do, and they will be
the rest of us will leave. no worries, we are just sticking around until the free trial is up and then we are bouncing.
Yeah I expect a pretty sharp decline in population right around the 22nd of October.. and then another one around the 30th. It's the time period afterward that the population will begin to draw conclusions one way or the other about the future of the game.
I personally have not bought the game, I played beta, and I monitored the release feedback here and elsewhere and decided not to purchase based on that feedback and my own experiences. Since then I've continued to watch, and participate in discussions about the game and its shortcomings and my original decision to not purchase the product has been solidified in my mind as a good decision. That being said, I by myself do not represent anyone other than myself and am unqualified to judge the decisions of others who may or may not be enjoying the game. We're all different and we all have different preferences when it comes to how we spend our leisure time. Just because some people have chosen to spend their time in a way that differs from me does not make them stupid or somehow less human, it just makes them different, nor does it make me any of those things for disagreeing with them about it.
It really is possible to have a discussion on the game, polarized as the community is on it, without resorting to judgmental name-calling.
