I love the game. I love it with a burning passion. So long as there are people who are enthusiastic in joining levequests, behests, roleplaying, and any activities that will be available when new content arrives, I'm happy.
I DO NOT want to see the game die. I DO NOT want idiots roaming around Eorzea complaining about how they can't PK anyone because the game is not a WoW clone. And I definitely DO NOT want Square-Enix to fail because of this game...
I think it is time for the whiny EXPLETIVE DELETED to shut the @#%^ up and actually START supporting the game THE RIGHT WAY. I have been seeing some major trends happening lately on forums and in game of people with whiny complaints without doing ANYTHING to help Square-Enix.
You don't have to have a PhD in psychology or a master of metaphysical studies in order to figure these out...
First of all... everyone should really, literally, shut up. If you have nothing good to say, don't say anything. Telling SE about how horrible the game currently is will only discourage them, and will improve it because they tolerate the complaints. The last thing the developers need is something to TOLERATE. They NEED our support, and it's time we give it to them. And if you do not know how to properly do it, let me guide you...
We (or at least some of us) must create a blog, or a website, or a facebook account.. whatever. SOMETHING...
This SOMETHING must contain:
* FFXIV supporters. These are people who are currently playing the game and are planning on staying even when it starts charging, and even if SE makes changes that they may or may not necessarily agree on. They're the loyalists, like me, who will stand up for the face of Final Fantasy until the dawn of time.
* Articles or comments from the supporters that contain appreciative content, UNITED suggestions (more on this later.), and a big dose of encouragement to the current development team.
* SCREENSHOTS! This will only further emphasize the fact that FFXIV has awesome graphics.
It must NOT contain:
* Whiny WoW trolls.
* Articles, comments, or suggestions that contain negativity towards FFXIV (NOT EVEN "CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM", WHICH BY THE WAY, IS A LOAD BULLsh*t.).
It's a step.
