I'm not going to make any judgements on peoples complaints whether justified or not. Nor will I make any new ones because, lets face it, all the good rants are taken.
I was enjoying my little adventure thru Eorzea. I got to talk to old friends from FFXI, kill little furries, start a little crafting and do some beginning quests. Basically having a grand old time. Now, I was not oblivious to the glaring faults that are pretty abundant ingame but I was enjoying my time despite these little hiccups that so often occur when a game of this scope is released.
That being said, I like this game. More to the point I desperately WANT to like this game. But after reading thru the Complaints Department I am beginning to think my desperate need to like this game is strangling my actual opinion. Reading that endless stream of grievances, both legitimate and groundless, has brought what I was trying so hard to ignore acutely into unwanted focus. Now all the little peccadilloes(yikes!) are right up in my friggin grill everytime I log on. So tread carefully, new and old alike, when gazing upon those complaint threads because they are more subversive than they seem.
I really do hope that SE takes alot of the real problems/solutions seriously. Alot of veteran gamers are providing not only concerns with the game but viable resolutions to those concerns.
Now seriously, where's the AH in Ul'Dah?
