Personally think that the ZOMGWENEEDAUCTIONHOUSE people are rather sad. I loved the AH on FFXI, like going there and pretty much getting all my needs met. It was nice, but I actually don't mind the market wards. Yeah, they still need to work on it, there is definite room for improvement. But, I actually don't mind not knowing the exact price that things are usually going for. Call me crazy, but I'm actually enjoying it now. I have been able to get items at really low prices because of this and I can also barter more than on FFXI. Yeah, people do sell some things for too much gil at times. But, the funny thing is, you don't have to buy it.
It is funny how people feel that they have to have everything right then and there. I mean I have ADD, I like fast and flashy things, but I have been learning to slow myself down. Is it so bad that you have to wait for a couple of days to get the gauntlet of uberness at the price you want? ****, you still have to wait on FFXI and they have the auction house. WoW has an AH that isn't exclusive to each country, its a universal one and you still have to wait to get items. So, is it really all that different? If you want everything handed to you immediately, play a linear rpg, not an mmo. If that isn't quick enough for you, you can use cheat codes as well. Yeah, being a bit of a smart ***, sorry just in that mood today.
That being said, AH is probably going to when or at least be a close second. Because a poll is about seeing what the majority says. From what I have seen most people complain about NEEDING an AH. I didn't know that I spent the majority of my time at the AH for it to be such a huge issue. Apparently I'm not playing the game correctly due to the fact I don't realize how important having an AH is. They're making improvements on the market wards and it is getting better. Not being fanboy about FFXIV, just saying this isn't a huge issue. Though, they do need to fix my disappearing retainers -__-;;
I'm hoping that the content one will win out more than the others. I want to be able to immerse myself into the game and I can't do that without content. I need npc's running around and interacting with other npc's. I need to be able to do retarded quest x from random npc Z. I need to see npc's out in the world of Eorzea and not just in the City States or the settlements. That's what I want to be addressed first. Hopeful, but not expecting it to when out in the poll. I'm sure my concerns will be seen to at some point.
