Nooo- oh, actually that's not such a big deal, all things considered.

Is anyone else simultaneously aghast at SE's lack of understanding when it comes to huge, important issues, yet amazed at the speed and precision with which they find, announce, and fix tiny ones? ¯\(o_O)/¯

It is terribly inconvenient, and an apology simply will not do. I expect a free dessert.

#8cornyboob, Posted: Dec 01 2010 at 5:02 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Personally I am glad that the programmers and developers where capable of getting in to the soursecode and manage to break this description. It gives me hope that they might be able to fix some things instead of make them worse. If only they could lay off the crystal meth before the go tweaking out on the FFXIV sourcecode we might have a working sp system that Increases the Party SP Bonus instead of decreases it....

I think you mean Crystal Chronicle Meth; SE makes their own stuff, man.

Fixing a database entry is easier than fixing your source code or your database structure. In my line as in IT Tech/Programmer, I have had those issues that looks so simple in words and writing but is **** in time and effort to actually fix. I hated those days when I get those kind of issues...

TThe only think i am agast about is hwo they managed to break this in the first place pre patch the information was accurate!

This means either they are very careless with how they handlt the source code or they ahve a sabotour.

Either way its not looking ver good in the light for them.

I hope they find the rat and kill it or control access to their source coded to competant people who dont go and accidentally (without doublechecking what they are even doing) breaking some line of text that was already accurate.

Dear SE,

Thank you for finding the major issue with the text for Fast Cast. It's definitely a huge issue and is affecting the game play for all of your subscribers. However, I feel you have done so much for your player base already, that you can set aside this issue for now, and take a break. Just fix the minor issue with 30+ SP and we'll call it done for the year.

Thanks,

Cor
