Maybe some of us don't care about WoW and would actually be happy to never see another mention of it in these forums - derail or not. I personally am sick of it. Yes, I am sure some people think the features are great w/e - but why does every game have to do the same **** thing? I don't care what WoW has. I care about what FFXIV has.


OMFG Why does every single MMO has a grind in it :O OMG! Every single MMO i have played EVAH does the same thing, how dare they :(


Why do all cars have wheels? Don't automotive engineers have ANY creativity?


Quick! Grab the horse's and lets tell people how good the old time's where, and how driving car's is ezmode XD!

Of course,wow is EZ mode made for wow kiddies and 5 year olds,just like Rift.

Yeah,go quest grind,we,the real mmo players,will never player that crap.


Indeed no MMO has quests or Grinds! You go tell them :@

Oh wait, FFIXV has quest & Grind......


Quest grind =/= mob grind.

...and have moderators actually moderate? what a novel concept!

Sorry for the low blow mods, some of the stuff that goes on on this site would not be tolerated on any forums I have managed.


As for this, I'll quote Kaolian here.

Quote:
When moderating a forum, we walk a fine line. We strive for a forum free of the restrictions you sometimes find on other forum. A forum we can let people have a voice in regardless of what they think about a given game, policy, quest, etc. A home where people feel they can come talk about the games that they feel strongly about, where they can feel free to say whatever it is they have to say about a game, good or bad without worrying that it will be suppressed because it doesn’t fit in with the bottom line of that game.

On the other hand, people are sometimes a bit more strident and opinionated than is welcome. It is very, very hard to judge tone of voice via text. Sometimes people say things they mean as a sarcastic joke that are taken literally. Sometimes they are just downright ****** off and don’t care that they drive others away. Other people take a perverse delight in trolling and starting arguments for fun, and some people enjoy watching those arguments. You can’t please all the people all the time. You do well if you maintain an above average level of user satisfaction. And I think that overall we do a pretty good job. Sure we have the occasional exception or missed call, but we try to err on the side of not suppressing posts where we can. We also rely on you, the members of the forum, to keep things reasoned and rational to a certain degree. I would however probably encourage a few of you who tend to be a bit more on the argumentative side to let off some steam in the Asylum or OOT, where we actually encourage flaming and argumentativeness.

The point behind my wall of text there is we want you all to get along, but if you see someone having a particularly bad day and they are lashing out a bit much, cut them some slack too. Feelings run high when people feel strongly about a game, especially new games in the beginning when they see their hopes and dreams for their ideal game fulfilled or denied.

As Pikko said in her post, we’ll keep an eye on the ones who are doing it maliciously to cause trouble, and abuse of the rating system along those lines will not be tolerated and will lead to a permanent removal of the ability to rate posts. If you think your posts or a particular thread has been unfairly targeted, please feel free to send it to myself or any of the other admins for review.

What I don't understand is why it's apparently not appropriate to mention the name of the game. Why such aversion over a name? Games aren't defined by their names. Or maybe, for some people they are. But what I don't think you're realizing is that you can't even mention features from other games without some ******* coming along and recognizing it as a feature in another game and saying "go back to that game then." Do you see what I'm getting at? But then ya'll jump up on the, "Well, it's okay to say that because they were talking about that game and that's bad so we can be rude and mean and intolerant because you were stupid enough to mention that game lololol."

That's your hangup. Really, it is. If you tune out simply because they mention the name of the game along with their discussion on the concept, that's not their failing, that's YOURS. That's your inability to remain objective. That's you being narrow minded and intolerant and living in this ridiculous little bubble that says as long as you don't know where the idea came from, it's okay but if it came from another game and you mention that game's name, all of a sudden it's bad. Really? I mean...really?

Quote:
If people were truly interested in making this game better they would work harder to actually communicate what it is they actually want without advocating for the wholesale cut-and-paste of another game (which I don't even like) into FFXIV (which I do like).


Right, because someone mentions a concept or select concepts and that means they're calling for a wholesale cut and paste. You have no idea how many times someone has drawn that parallel and you clearly have no idea how much it ****** me off. As in...three words from another amicable chat with Kaolian ****** off...because it's ******* stupid. It's the dumbest parallel you could draw that one concept or a handful of concepts represents a "wholesale cut and paste." If anything, the ONLY time I've ever seen ANYONE call for a wholesale cut-and-paste is when someone comes along and says they wish SE had just taken FFXI and updated the graphics engine and then added a few things to it. That's the ONLY time ANYONE has ever called for ANYTHING like what you're saying, so just don't bloody say it anymore, k?

Good Example: FFXIV could benefit from adding some dynamic content - for instance it would be great if there were periodic raids of empire forces in different zones across Eorzea. All the Aethrytes could offer R20+ players a free teleport to the battlefield so they could join in the battle to repel empire forces. Each player could sign up with battle npcs who would then auto-party them with rank appropriate players. Targets that were in the rank range of a party would be marked for players in parties of that rank... (and so on, you get my point)


You're just being **** retentive. You're better than that.

Uhh...it's easy.

In wow,you only do quest,there are 43356364 stupid quests,that's it,you quest till lvl 80.

In FFXIV,FFXI,Lineage 2,you know,real games,you quest AND grind mobs,there is a big difference.

Perhaps for some it's easier to just say "I liked X feature from X game" instead of actually explain it. You say it is out of obstinacy or laziness and I don't really disagree.

Or course the inevitable problem is that whenever you talk about adding a feature that just HAPPENS to be in "other game", the immediate reply is almost always "So you just want WoW?"

I won't even claim that I've never made that knee-jerk reactionary reply myself. At first, I will admit that my outlook was largely that of intentionally avoiding anything that could make the game even remotely resemble WoW, for no other reason than because I didn't want the game to be WoW.

Over time I've come to think that there are some things that FFXIV could benefit from. Some of them just happen to come from other games.

On one hand, I don't want to see every other topic turned into a discussion about games that aren't FFXIV. But at the same time, it's insane that any mention of any feature that WoW just happens to have immediately derails the thread into "Oh, so you just want a WoW clone? Go back to WoW!"

It would be nice if people could discuss features and whether or not they like the idea without the thread resorting to supporting or rejecting the idea outright for no other reason than because another game does or does not have it.

Because that's what it almost always boils down to; people are unable to rationally and calmly discuss anything around here anymore because of preconceived notions whenever anyone mentions anything.

Olor get's it, why can't everyone else?

I'm fine with people framing WoW references (or other game references for that matter) in a way that adds to the discussion of FFXIV. Please do it in such a way that, as someone who has played vanilla WoW less then 30 days, I can understand. Otherwise you are not really adding to the thread, you're just derailing it. I'm not the only one in this position I'm sure.

In the thread that prompted your little campaign, there was no mention of WoW until someone came along and noticed one person referencing concepts found in WoW and told them to go back to it. So if we're going to be fair and objective, why don't you start another campaign to clean up the boards that involves ignoring people who fly off the handle when they recognize concepts from games that are not XIV and make abrasive statements that lead to derails?

Dont worry i'll wait

Why would i do that if i can just do easy quests for 5 year olds?

The fact that you can lvl up like that makes the game unplayable for me.


The image of a lvl 79 doing a fed ex quest in wow makes me giggle,lol.

Most people should, by now, know what instances are and the benefits to having them in any game; why do I need to go into any more detail about how they should work? You can look at any modern game--FFXIV, WoW, Aion, or whatever--and instantly understand how the concept works.

Admittedly, mentioning features like the Dungeon Finder could use a bit of explaining since it's not a feature common to every MMO (yet), so anyone who hasn't played WoW since BC (or at all) would be unaware of such a thing. Essentially, you choose your desired role in a party (tank, healer, DPS), pick the type of dungeon you want to run (or, in FFXIV, it could be a specific activity, like linked leves or NM hunting), and then the system adds you to a queue. Eventually, it finds a group for you, tells you that it's ready to go, and then waits for you to confirm that you still want to do this, and teleports you to your intended destination. When the activity is finished, it teleports you back to where you were previously. In WoW's case, the pool of players is from every server in that particular region (eg. NA, EU, China, etc.); obviously, the pool would be much smaller for local players, so FFXIV groups would probably take longer to construct, especially for DPS, but you could easily craft or gather or solo while you wait for your queue to pop, and not have to worry about shouting for a group for the next 5 hours.

I could go on at length about ways to improve the game based on my experience with WoW and its features.

Ah,the dungeon finder,the biggest crap ever made.

Just queue,wait and party with random players from other servers.

There is no way to know if they suck,you will have to find out when the group wipes 6 times in 3 mins.
And why bother saying something? the group will end and you will never see them again.

You don't even have to run to the dungeon!! ahahaha

Seriously? that's what the WoW community has devolved into huh? players don't even want talk to each other in order to form groups?

I'd much rather form a party the old fashioned way; by talking to people.

Ok folks. Take the discussions on WoW's features to the WoW boards. This forum is for the discussion of FFXIV. Compare it to WoW or whatever other game you wish, but the general theme of this forum is to remain XIV.

FFXIV has instances. Could you explain to me why these aren't good enough? What kind of instances would improve FFXIV? Why does it have to be instanced content instead of open world? What kind of content would you put in the instances? Again - why wouldn't that content work outside of instances?

If you want me to believe instances will improve FFXIV - you need to tell me exactly how - because I don't happen to share your belief that if we just give every player their own personal version of content - it auto-magically is better than content in an open world.

It's cool if you're too lazy to actually explain why you want instanced content versus open world content - but don't expect me to treat you as anything but a troll.

Also every post I EVER recall seeing by you mentions WoW. Why not try to talk about FFXIV on it's own terms? I don't play WoW. I don't come to a FFXIV forum to talk about WoW. I play FFXIV. I come here to talk about FFXIV.
