I, too, think it was incredibly evasive. However, I also knew that when this came out (as it was bound to) everyone who is looking for that shred of hope would cling onto it as if they came right out and said "We are working on all your issues - here's a list", and then literally listed them.
Instead - they give us
When asked about what they were happy about with the launch, Sundi immediately responded that he was happy at seeing the global community assemble.
I don't even know what this means - does he mean the global community choosing servers? Synchronous reviews on Amazon (lol)? This is one of those answers you give when you don't really have an answer. I see it all the time when I'm interviewing job candidates.
Kurosawa was thrilled that so many players were happy with the crafting and that players use crafting as an alternate leveling method (rather than leveling just by killing things with weapons). It helped show just how much the armoury system really contributed to the game's appeal.
Someone already pointed this out, but this is happening largely because there aren't many alternatives once you have hit certain caps. There are folks who truly enjoy crafting or just want to make money, but there's a lot of old school RPG'ers who would quite happily never change classes...... Except we have to. This is one system that they could have left as just a side attraction and it would have been just fine.
And finally - I am glad they at least somewhat addressed the UI but they could have phrased it a little better. I don't think that anyone is complaining about the look or feel (though if they would just let third party developers get hold of it I KNOW it would made better in less time and with less fuss), just the RESPONSIVENESS.
What does responsiveness have to do with the Ps3? I don't like that they are already pulling the Ps3 card when that version isn't even on the market yet
. I mean, if it's already that much of a fuss drop Ps3 support. Drop it before you REALLY are limited by it. Just drop it. Your most loyal fans are already on PC and after this debacle, I can't see many folks falling all over themselves for the Ps3 version. One or two of us for convenience sake, but your established playerbase will already be on PC.
Let's face it, PC is the bigger market anyway. Every other major MMO with the big numbers is on PC. That's where they need to compete to stay viable.
