A moment of silence for FF XIVFollow

I am intensely disappointed with by the devs wanting to turn this game into an 11-WoW hybrid. Jump, renaming jobs, changing the gear system, amongst other changes is too much for me to bare. I loved the system they had in place, but now they are throwing this out the window to make the game more popular. I loved this game, but no longer, they are changing everything I loved about this game. I'm not sure I can bring myself to play these last couple of weeks before armageddon. I'm seriously contemplating cancelling my account (thinking long and hard) over this issue. This truly is a sad day for me, I loved this game too much I guess. I know there are other games coming out soon but I'm not to sure I'd be willing to play other wow clones. To those who qq'd this game to death, I hope the game doesn't die out on you from the droves that are going to leave.

While I'm actually sad to see you go .. (no sarcasm, I <3 you all.)

Jump - Invented in video games quite some time before WoW. Even Mario could do it, Luigi could do it really slowly for greater distances.

renaming jobs - To classic FF names. Still nothing to do with copying WoW.

changing the gear system - To require a rank to use gear instead of allowing people to join leveling groups in gear they receive penalized stats from.

Give it some time to rest and consider it later on. No need to write it off completely just because they're mixing some old and new?

FFXI took the names from other FF, FFIX had a dragoon with Jump for instance, and summoners have been around since forever (summoner Yuna in X) so the names thing, it's to bring the franchise back into the FF fold, which is a good thing, people expect certain traits from certain jobs so less confusing, White Mage = healer, Black Mage = nuker, Bacon Mage = old joke I never quite understood.

Yeah, 'cuz how many times have names like Paladin and White Mage appeared in FF games?

...Wait? Almost all of them? Are you sure?

FF4? FF5? FF1?! What are those? Those aren't classic FF games, not by a longshot!
