Just what the title says. Would you prefer a huge sweeping update or the more consistent method of small ones every few weeks?
I would prefer the continuous string of small patches...in theory. This would keep people engaged in the game and its progress on a more regular basis and provide opportunities to get players feedback on specific things...if there were enough people interested and positive about XIVs status. Which I don't believe there are atm.
I just got back from reading the letters from the producer once again and it has become quite obvious how much content they are withholding(a lot). If you aren't sure what I mean by that, go read the first letter from "Yoshi-P". I understand his logic behind wanting to lay foundation and wanting to be consistent in the improvement of the game. As well as laying a foundation so people can enjoy the content that is released rather than be stunted by the games mechanics. But a couple quests every few weeks isn't gonna keep current players entertained for very long, and more importantly, it won't bring in/back any new/inactive players.
I'm don't expect them to release everything that they have, that would be marketing suicide for obvious multiple reasons. However, I think they do need to release enough content as a show of good faith for people to able to believe in the game and want to play. They have taken the steps necessary to start earing our trust, but still don't have it(or at least mine).
So IMO, continuing to give us piecemeals of information and content will do little except frustrate people. Again I don't expect miracles, just common sense. This is NOT AN ATTEMPT TO TROLL OR ARGUE. I am looking for opinions on what the community would prefer in this matter.
