7 hours later, and still on the XIV ZAM main page is what amounts to an ad for Rifts. And the forums remain silent.
The silence speaks volumes.
Admittedly, I lurk. And I'm good at it. I lurked here during XI, and for months during XIV. But, honestly, this is a kick in a tender place. Well-placed, might I add.
Perhaps I am a bit ****** off. It might have something to do with the fact that we the players voted overwhelmingly "Content" in the first players poll. Or that, since that day, we have received nothing for content. Or perhaps it's the fact that, though we have gotten nothing along the lines of additional things to do in XIV, Yoshi tends to throw out the word "Content" every third sentence in his "Letters from the Producer", while still focusing entirely on the UI (Thus far. Apparently future patches will tell the tale) which if one reads between the lines on his first letter was -his- major beef with the game...
...Perhaps it's the fact that Yoshi's idea of UI fixes don't match up with mine. I.E., a way to find a bloody party without having to donate my firstborn on the appropriate day when the stars align...
...No. No, that all ****** me off....but it's not that.
It's the fact that I couldn't answer "Nuking the **** out of everything still moving" as to how I prefer to spend my time playing XIV.
I don't want to be a cure-bot. I don't want to buff/debuff/scratch-***. I want to kill it with fire. And lightning.
But now I have to read about Rifts on the ZAM welcome page? WTF?
...wait...do they have blm love over yonder?
(Apologies if this offends. Tequila is bad. And no doubt I'll regret this in the morning. But that's how it goes.)
Edit: Tequila. See above. >.<
