I think your sig says it best. I'm getting a bit tired of hearing "Go back to WoW". I did, a lot. I'm tired of it.
Saying something along the lines of "The combat is a bit delayed, they should streamline it." does not warrant my return to a game I've obviously grown bored with. I think people confuse dumbed
down with streamlined
Having something flow and make sense does not make it easy or cater to stupid people. Boss fights should be long and hard, not navigating menus or having to run 2 computers/alt tab just to craft something. Same with the Market Wards. I hear "They work fine" all the time. I don't want fine, I want great. I don't care if they work o.k., I want an auction house. It works better
. It is a streamlined version of market wards. Yeah? Has nothing to do with World of Warcraft.
Ideas I want borrowed: #AlphaOMegaZero9,0001. Official Forums where we can post this sh*t and have someone who matters read it.
#1. Auction House
#2. Mounts, chocobos, whatever. No renting, I want my own that I can call whenever I want.
#3. Teleports like FFXI. No more saving anima for days on end.
#4. Skillchains, cool ones.
#5. Level requirements for equipment, not this strange system. People are using R40 gear on a R15, and I have to group with them. Stop.
#5. AoE selection circles, not guessing where it's going to hit.
#6. Smooth quick transition from in and out of combat, not "Hold on let me get my weapon out. Give me a sec."
#7. Open World quests (That give xp, not a copper ingot), leave guildleves too if people like them.
#8. At least as many areas as FFXI RoZ and more obviously ranked locations.
#9. Some way around this 2 foot ledge barrier. Enough with it, it's 2011 now. If we can't have jump, give us some kind of action button. I'm tired of getting stuck on something on my fireball casting conjurer that I could jump over/up all day in real life as a standard human.
#10. More variety of enemies. Where are the low level beastmen and NMs? I want Bubbling Bernie, Leaping Lizzy, Spiny Spipy, whatever. Adding them would have been the single greatest throw back to FFXI and everyone in the community would have laughed,rejoiced, and made Youtube videos. This dev team has downs for not thinking of things like that imo.
#11. Some kind of quest like Lu Shang's? These little things are easy and would really get the nostalgia going, which is what I think could save this game.
#12. Group Missions like FFXI had. Those were really cool and getting to ride the airship was a great reward.
I could think of a hundred other things they could have borrowed from other games, but most is from FFXI. It was a great game, and contrary to what some may think on this server; my favorite MMO of all time. I swear to God, if SE hired 10 people from these forums to sit down for a week and give them ideas to implement; they'd have doubled their subscriptions by now. It's absolutely ridiculous. The crazy thing is, we love FF so much and want so bad for it to work, we would do it for FREE! FFXI + A few advances in MMO tech that have come out in the past 3 or 4 years and this would have been the best MMO ever developed. It's @#%^ing sad, and it's right under their noses.
