I'm so sorry you believe the criticism is "too harsh" and "undeserved".
Luckily for those waiting for the game to be made right, Tanaka and Wada don't agree with you.
Oh, and on the subject of inventory space, again Tanaka agreed with the criticism. Which is why he stated they're now removing +1 and +2 variations and getting rid of/streamlining the "crap" drops.
Yes, I said it was "too harsh". No, I did not say it was "undeserved" only "undeservedly harsh", a different way of saying the same thing. I never said there was nothing wrong, only that there have always been fixes to be made, and there always will be.
So if you are "waiting for the game to be made right", then I question your definition of "right". When there are no more problems? Well, good luck waiting for that. MMOs evolve over time, because there are always improvements to be made, and that is especially true in the time period after the initial launch. It was true with EQ:OA, SWG (laundry list on that one, and the fixes didn't exactly come fast, and when they did they mostly caused more problems), WOW, FFXI (remember piles of bodies sitting just inside zone borders? You saw them and were like, **********, did someone train a mob to the zone border?" Then you zoned ... lag ... and you got your answer: Yes, yes they did. Attempt to zone back .... lag .... oh look, now I've joined the pile of bodies, lost a ton of exp and time, and have to either wait for a rez or port back to my HP and make the run again! How long did that issue take to fix?).
As far as Tanaka and Wada "not agreeing with me", which part? The part where I said, "nothing needs to change" because I didn't say that. I am glad that they are taking the complaints seriously, I wish every MMO did. I only wish that people would calm down the hyperbole a bit and stop treating minor issues like they are the end of the world.
There are a lot of good things to this game that were done right. I think equal credit and praise should be given to those things. Things like: see the FFXI issue above... notice it is not present in XIV, also no XP loss from death, also being able to teleport without having to find a BLM willing to take a ton of your gil to get you HALFWAY to where you want to go which seriously alleviates the timesink-ness present in FFXI. How about the fact that when you pass through the gate at the ferry you don't get left sitting on the dock if it pulls out right as you're running to the dock [maybe they had updated this later in FFXI, I quit that a while back] leaving you sit there, dejectedly, twiddling your thumbs waiting for the next ferry so you can sit for 10 minutes on that. How about variable difficulty levels on leves so that you can run them yourself if you can't find a group, or upgradable rewards for leves, or that if you fail a leve that you had pumped the reward on then you can wait for the leve reset and try it again (maybe with a group instead of solo). How about basically free crafting skill every time you run a local leve and, let's not forget, the variable rewards so taking a lower rank leve can net you better rewards (in exchange for less skill gain) because you earn a better assessment.
Shall I continue?
No, fine... I probably would even agree with you on some of your problems with the game. However, I think that the "outrage" or whatever is just people blowing minor issues out of proportion because they had unreasonable expectations to begin with. What did you think? That it would be better than seks?
YES, there are issues that need addressing...
NO, I don't believe people have been voicing their criticisms in reasonable terms...
YES, SE needs to address those criticisms, and in a reasonable time frame...
NO, it is not the end of the world that this game didn't have a perfect launch...
YES, I enjoy it now, and expect to enjoy it even more later...
NO, I don't intend on voicing my opinions of the games problems because I don't feel like I can add anything to that conversation that hasn't already been said, but I can point out the myriad good things that people seem to be missing.
Honestly, take a breather, relax, can't you think of a few good things about the game? If you honestly can't think of any, or don't agree with my points above, well... go ahead and unsubscribe before they charge you. But if you can, then don't you think that those good points deserve to be pointed to as much as the bad points? So far, I haven't seen that happening, and I think that's wrong.
And if you're on Kashuan... if you stick around... hope to run a leve or two with you sometime.
