It doesn't matter how many bugs there are/aren't or how much content is enough content. If you find some friends, find something you can do together in this game that is available, and make a good time of it. I recently have been duoing with a LS-mate, and everything hasn't gone perfectly, we haven't gotten 30k (or even 10k) exp per hour, and I die on the last mob of almost every single behest/leve. It has been a blast, not because my circumstances were perfect, but because of the friend I have made and the fact that I'm having a great time enjoying their company.


^ this. I can agree with Ronin completely here, mainly because we are in the same LS, but we always have a good time. Last night we had a 45 minute LS debate on which Zelda title is the best (Link to the Past!) which turned into another hour long discussion on old games that we love (at one point someone brought up River City Ransom, which is just awesome). The night before we had a hot sauce vs bbq sauce debate, talked NFL playoffs, the NCAA Bowl system (which is poo btw) and Rex Ryan's foot fetish. I guess my point is we (the people that like the game) know everything that people complain about and have no problem with an adult conversation about such. However, a majority of posts have degenerated to someone talking s*** about their ex that banged their cousin.

Just because someone is going to make the argument, it might as well be me:

While I personally agree that friends make the game more fun (and friends were the reason I stayed with XI even 3-4 months after I was tired of it), would you rather play a game that is only marginally fun at best with friends who make it fun, or play a game that is inherently fun with friends that make it -more- fun? I wholeheartedly agree that the right group of people can make nearly anything enjoyable, but I still wish that I could have fun in a game I enjoy with friends that also enjoy it, rather than have fun in a game I don't enjoy by talking to friends that also aren't enjoying it about things that aren't even relevant to the game, ya know?

Furthermore, Hot Sauce > BBQ sauce in nearly all applications. And in the few that BBQ sauce is the better choice, spicy BBQ sauce > regular BBQ sauce.

Also, Rex Ryan's foot fetish what?

I agree with you completely here. My point really was how people react to someone saying they enjoy the game. Here, you presented your arguement in a conscice, ordered manner...not a "youlikethegamesoyoureamoronsefanboinocontentgamesucksweneedanAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHNOWNOWNOWNOWNOW" reply which can really rub people the wrong way.

I've made that same point before; it's one thing to understand what the other person is saying but disagree and provide a reasoning. If you approach someone with "omfg how can you even think that? You're retarded" then you've pretty much shot to **** any chance of getting anywhere.

yup you hit the nail on the head.

this games needs fixing /additions/variety so bad it hurts. :(
i dont think it will be fun or ready for majority of players for at least a year at the dead rate that changes are coming. very sad..i wanted this game to win so much.

se, every day you wait......every single day you dont give some changes......you lose more and more players confidence.
so much damage has been done it will never have the same chance as it could have on release. ppl are scarred now.

i had the attitude, its free might as well get ahead a bit on my character awaiting the real fixes, but even that now is just too boring and with all thats lacking still too inconvenient to stomach.

but im still hopeful...in a years time when it is worth logging into again, it ends up being a huge amt. of fun as we all expected :O)

Exactly, it's easy to see both sides of an arugement if you're willing to accept that fact that you COULD BE WRONG. The fact that almost every thread now degenerates into a shouting match is what made Angry Hulk Ronin make an appearance.

The complaints thread isn't some conspiracy by the admins to protect SE or XIV from negativity. There are admins that write entire articles on the cons of this game, so the idea they are insulating the readers from complaints is ridiculous.

They've done the same with "quitting the game" "is ffxi dying" "buddy pass please"
etc.
It's to keep the forum from being spammed with the same topic worded 300 different ways.

If you don't like how Zam runs the forums, there are other sites you can go to, some of them even let you post one complaint topic after another.

The only thing that's ******* me off about discussing anything on these boards is that, anytime you try to discuss the game's design and suggest new features to help improve it, it'll degenerate into ******** like the 2nd page if "THAT GAME" has anything even remotely like it.

Here's the thing though; I'm sick of "THAT GAME". It was fun. It still is fun. But something needs to come along and replace it before "THAT COMPANY" falters and the entire ******* genre comes crashing down, because who the **** is going to support all of its players once it finally does die? SWTOR? Go read the "EA Louse" blog and come back here. SWTOR isn't going to do **** to help this genre.

The only way the genre is going to move forward is if someone takes "THAT GAME"'s good ideas--and there are a LOT of good ideas in "THAT GAME" that should be genre standards--refines them, and adds their own stuff to make their game stand out. How do you think "THAT GAME" got to where it is? It wasn't because it was new and original; it took ideas from other games of the time and refined them to create a better product.

Just about every game--indeed, every product, whatever it is--has built upon its predecessors. There's no logical reason to reject this practice because "SIMPSONS DID IT". Doing so is just holding back progress. There's no reason that FFXIV can't borrow features from other games.

This is the same point that was made in the "Ignore the WoW posters" thread, and I agree. I don't want FFXIV to look like "THAT GAME", but if it can take some perfectly good features from "THAT GAME" and build on them, then the end result will be great.

It's one thing to not want your car to look like your competitor's car, but it's another to reject tires and a steering wheel just because other cars have them.

I actually have one cabinet in my kitchen that is devoted entirely to hot sauces.


i make my own hot sauce (and curry <3 flipping curry). i've found a few good brands in a restaurant i frequently visit where ppl bring hot sauce from all over the country, those i usually try to mimic or improve upon. i love hot sauce on my eggs in the morning and any sandwich i have for lunch, the only thing i don't put hot sauce on is steak because i won't season steak with anything. if you need to season steak, its not worth having.

Edit: or sushi XD

frank's red hot sauce should be removed from the planet or legally required to change its name to frank's colored-red imitation-hot-sauce.

I usually season my thicker steaks with freshly ground peppercorn and sea salt. Sometimes what I'll do with thinner steaks like bottom round cuts is I'll whip up some mustard with a kick to it (ground pepeper, cayenne pepper, celery salt), lightly coat both sides of the meat, and then fry it. Delicious.

As for sushi, I think it tastes good with the wasabi and ginger they usually include. I wouldn't dip it in soy sauce though.

As for Frank's... I personally prefer Texas Pete, and I like it not to use plainly, but because it's cheap and comes in large containers, so it makes a nice cheap base to build better sauces off of if I am in too much of a rush to totally build one from scratch, which I usually am. Take a base of some habanero sauce, vinegar, garlic juice as a liquid base, assorted spices and seasonings (no, I won't list them all) and then thicken it if needed with tomato sauce or pureed peppers and finish off with Texas Pete to give it more volume and to add some of the hotness back that was removed by the tomato sauce.

Also delicious. Even on steak :)

The foodie in me agrees with you. In fact, the foodie in me would go so far as to say that I can't stand when people ask me for ketchup when I make steak. I can deal with someone asking for A1 or Worcestershire sauce, but whenever someone asks for ketchup, it just annoys the crap out of me.

On the other hand, hot sauce does make everything taste better. Hot sauce even makes hot sauce taste better. And while a god stake may not -need- sauce, the right amount of sauce (read: don't coat the **** thing such that you can't even taste it any more) can be a good compliment to the steak.

I love salsa so much I make my own from fresh ingredients when I'm not feeling like my usual lazy self XD

When it comes to peppers, however, I rather enjoy a nice jalapeno grilled on a pit flavored with butter and lemon pepper. I tried that with habaneros but they were a little too much XD

Problem with hobaneros is that they are slow to burn and long to last. I was hungry so I chowed down on like 4 of them before I started to realize it wasn't a good idea lol Had to gargle large amounts of hydrogen peroxide. That didn't help my other end however two days later ^^; Talk about new pain.

The other horribly sneaky thing about strong peppers is the oil that can get on your fingers when you cook with them. I chopped up a couple Scotch Bonnets (which I think is just another name or variety of Habanero) into a pot of bean soup I was making, and the smell made my nose itchy.

So I scratched it a bit. Oooo, BIG MISTAKE!

My skin tends to be sensitive to pepper oil or other spicy stuff like mustard, and oh lord, did I pay for that little nose scratch... eyes watering... skin getting all red and peeling off... just nasty...

I also learned that two peppers is well more than enough to spice up more than a gallon of bean soup, daaaang...

For the love of all that's holy, please make it happen sooner. My CE is collecting dust while I give my money to Blizzard in the meantime. I hope I want to play this game again by summer. I want to like it, honestly.

Actually it's more of a crafting sim than an MMO isn't it?

It would help if the Mods posted discussion threads that didn't have more than a hint of negativity to them. Not that mods shouldn't be allowed to have opinions, but I think they should actually have socks. If I were new to the site and saw a mod creating an article that brings on even more game bashing, I would assume it was ok too. It's the folks with double and triple+ digit post counts that are ******* me off, they know better.

I get what you're saying, but, like it or not, Elmer's and Thayos's editorials, while reflecting their personal opinions, also tend to speak to the majority consensus about the current state of the game. It's honest. Honesty requires we sometimes have to deal with uncomfortable truths.

To do otherwise is insulting. Who wants to walk into a hoarder's house, rank with the stench of rotting food and pet excrement and hear the owner say "I just love a clean, orderly house!"

...?!

So, you're basically stating that you want the mods to post editorials that have them sticking their heads in the sands so that people like you don't have to deal with any negativity?

I find it quite refreshing to have forum mods that aren't completely blind fanbois. Nuking posts that contain the smallest amount of negativity.

As far as the editorials by Thayos, I have seen a few people complaining that they're too negative. To be perfectly honest I find them about as neutral as one can get at this stage in the game. Earlier on they seemed a bit "Right Wing", pro SE establishment. Lately he seems to be a lot more moderate, even left leaning.

I think being realistic about a problem is a good thing, even if the reality is bleak.
