Jeeez why am I not surprised? again, its ok to dispute something. If they are working on "foundation" they wouldn't have even released quests. You seem to think that there's 4 or 5 people working on this game, trust me there's enough bodies so let SE take care of the workload and its allocation and you tell them what you want different.
Yeah it is pretty common knowledge people assume SE doesn't work like a typical game development studio (some even say they're "retarded"), since maybe it's just the biased part of me that feels they'd be smart to sticking with fixing the game instead of releasing a ton of content ontop of it to make matters worse for them down the line. Yoshida even commented on how he'd rather get fixes out of the way so they can fully focus on adding content. For example:
Q. To that end, are there any plans on changing how food is consumed? Right now the effects are unknown and the community is confused as to how to use food.
A. Yoshida-san is aware of the problem and wants to address it, but admitted that the priority right now is the battle system. He indicated that he needs to proceed in this order because, for example, if they were to address food effects to make it so that food was being consumed for every battle right now, once the battle system changes, it might end up not being necessary or helpful. Yoshida-san feels the need to adjust the battle system first since it is the cornerstone of the game. He can then can address how food, for example, will play a part in the battle.
When they finish redoing the foundation of the game, what about the content they released ontop of the old one? The quest system is likely the whole purpose of these current additions, since in all of their MMOs the first line of quests have always been very blah. The game didn't even have a basic quest system in it yet beyond Guildleves.
Also, I'm not "content with anything", I'm just not ready to ***** and moan about everything I personally dislike like others may be quick to do so and rather see things play out because any concerns I have they already mentioned they'll be addressing, so why would I continue to complain about it?
