It's amazing how much some people can miss the point.
It's one thing to have a discussion about the game. Whether that discussion is about liking or hating the game isn't being called into question or somehow censored.
It's becoming a problem when people just carpet bomb threads with rate downs and make posts for the sole purpose of rehashing tired opinions and inciting flamewars instead of making a real attempt to discuss the state of the game. "This game sucks and you're stupid if you like it" isn't discussion, it's trolling.
This is addressing the latter which has no place on a forum that's supposed to have (relatively) civilized discussion.
That isn't to say the people who still enjoy the game aren't innocent and absolved of having to tread a little more softly, but in fairness for people who seem to dislike the game so much the haters who claim to have quit sure spend a lot of time around the boards.
See your post sounded pretty legit until you contradicted yourself. Using haters
as a derogatory term proves that you yourself are biased about how the game is perceived. The whole "haters" vs. "fanboys" debate will not go away, regardless of how intelligent the diction you surround it with.
Attempting to use collegiate level words to guise your sentiment only insinuates a minute level of intelligence, especially when referencing the opinions of individuals on a virtual social interaction board, such as a video game forum... cwatidid-der????
I quit after 3 weeks. I still check in here for 2 reasons.... Reason 1
Hopefully the game of my dreams one day will become the game of my dreams, but I might not have enough nights left to see that... Reason 2
Zam forums for ffxi were known as a source for great information..
Zam forums for ffxiv are known for a great source of drama and ********** Reason 3
After wasting $80 and being so dissapointed with this game in it's current state, I think the only pleasure I might get now, is watching this game crash and burn. That would bring my opinions validation and closure. Hey at least I'm honest right??? Just trying to get my moneys worth. Instead of looking forward to the magical update/patch.. I will be one of the people saying "I told you so"..
When it comes to mistakes.. like releasing a major mmo title too soon.. I cannot help but to think of this little proverb..
A stupid person never learns from their mistakes,
A smart person learns from their mistakes,
A wise person learns from other's mistakes....
Can SE stop being stupid??? who knows!
