Fellow ZAM Members -
I really didn't want to make another thread talking about SP, but I really can't help but continue to be frustrated day in and day out as to how or why SE has chosen to sit on the sidelines, again, and not say anything about this broken SP scale for players post 20.
I could go on and on about how the system is broken, but you guys already know this. I could go on and on about how many people you may know are quitting/postponing playing the game because SP is broken at higher levels. No need to reply saying "go level another craft or get other jobs to 20". We've already been playing through pain and agony so I'm not going to continue that, nor does anyone that I know of. My friends are dropping like flies, hence my frustration.
The single most thing I see in LS chat across 3 different linkshells is "Why has SE said nothing about this SP system?" "Don't they realize that hardly nobody is partying?"
Furthermore, I continue to be baffled as to why the FFXIV community sites aren't helping to stand up for the players and asking SE these questions. Are they not giving anymore interviews? No more Q&A sessions? I see the latest article Thayos wrote on the AH system (and I agree with it), but can we please start escalating the SP topic?
Anyone else feeling this way? I've tried to keep a smile on my face and remain positive on the outlook of this game through all the issues we've faced, but my patience is really wearing thin these days. I'm not one to waive the white flag, but if SE doesn't address this issue it's going up for me, and I can guarantee you it will go up for many others.
Not everyone will agree with me, the solo players love current system. Nobody is arguing to change how they have it for solo, just make it worthwhile for partying.
Everyday that goes by without SE acknowledging this issue, they lose a piece of restored faith they gained from all their communications with us players over the last month.
