Sub-default for a harmless question?
What gives ZAM? :/
Maybe I'm using the rating system wrong but if you create a thread like this one with a completely off the wall idea, I default it. Why? Because is completely insane. The game barely works as is in alot of peoples eyes, and you want to go even further away from FF staple and make it FPS? You didn't offer up any cool situations where it could be beneficial... like say an Archers Guild Quest where you have to snipe enemies or something for that mission for whatever reason, maybe to slow them from taking over a hamlet. You just presented a basic idea that caused serious issues for the few major MMOs that have tried it. Those MMOs failed miserably, this one's already having serious issues.
So I (as I stated may have wrongly) default this thread so it dissapears from the view of lurkers, who may possibly have ties to SE. I don't want this in a FF game, I would pay for an MMO that did it right... but not FF. I would hate for the Devs to secretly view the threads in this forum, see this topic as good or excellent and assume it's a good idea.
That said, there's been a few threads where I defaulted the thread itself but rated up the OP in there following posts to counter act the rating. I'm typing this because not very many others will come forward for defaulting you, but I know when my posts or threads get rated down I sometimes really wish I knew why. Had I posted this topic though it wouldn't be a question for me as to why. You more or less just walked into a Butcher Shop and asked why they don't stop selling meat and start only selling raw vegetables.
