So it does hurt me,
And calling people stupid that do not agree with your views isn't hurtful? Edited, Apr 3rd 2012 9:10pm by UltKnightGrover
Stupidity hurt's sometimes, what can i say ?
Yeah, I can see you point. Your logic sure ... hurt's
When FFXIV was released people who have bene playing Beta expected to find improvements while people who did not play Beta expected a solid game.
How do you find out how a game is? By buying it. What is so stupid about that?
So the game turned out to be a disappointment. How did SE respond? By not charging, hoping people would continuee to play.
Later, SE worked on FFXIV and announced 2.0. Quite a number of players already think that the game is playable and are looking forward to play while the game will be changed into 2.0. Now you could say that they think FFXIV is already worth the money. That would make it THEIR decision as a consumer. It's THEIR taste. To call someone's taste STUPID is rather...arrogant? After all, you sem to assume that your taste is better.
But let us also take their decision to pay for FFXIV the way it is now as an investment in future enjoyment. They believe that 2.0 is going to be awesome and are willing to assist SE in making it happen. You think this is stupid as well? Apparently you do. Apparently you already know how 2.0 is going to be and I bet that you already have it in writing what SE will do if no one would pay to enjoy FFXIV and to see 2.0. Cause you are a wise person who makes wise, rational decisions. You already know that SE would take their loss and come up wit a way better game than 2.0 in 2014 or maybe 2015. Right?
Of course you don't. You just use the same logic as the people who blame stupid people for today's billboard 200. If your music is not in it, it's because of stupid people. And that seems to hurt you.

We dint expect, we where told they would fix the issues before release wish guess what "THEY DINT!" And i beta tested the game, and guess what ? I believed them and bought it because **** IS SE!!! I remember when i was a little kid, going thru games on my local game store and seeing a game called Secret of Mana for the Snes, and i dint know what secret of mana was or anything, but hey it said "Squaresoft" so that meant back in my day "Epic game with 40hrs + gameplay" and it delivered, god i loved that game XD! Now it means "Another Pretty game with high graphics that is trying to recreate FFVII and has (insert random emo character as main character" etc etc.
And as far as knowing what will happen to 2.0, i will tell you exactly what will happen, knowing SE and their amazing marketing team, the game will get very little media coverage, at E3 they will unveil a trailer consisting mostly of CG scenes and a few gameplay time, because SE still think they have a smash hit on their hands, and are reluctant on showing their player base what they have in store for them, because god knows there are millions and millions of people paying attention to the development of this game, so god forbid they spoil anything, see they still think they are top dog, and they are not, what they need to do, is SPOIL what they are working on to the current player base, get feedback from then, and have them spread the word to those on the fence, because magazines and media will not do it, they have written the game off as a failure, and rightfully so, for a game on it's death bead SE is taking it's sweet time on updating it, because games like swotor, wow, rift etc etc get bigger and updated more often than FFXIV does, and they are not playing catch up, so why is SE who is committed on reviving this game, going out of it's way to keep this game in darkness ? Really you have 20 thousand users, for the love of god use them as your marketing team, just like wow did on it's beginning, instead SE is acting like "Sorry cant reveal anything, we dont wanna spoil anything for thoe millions of people lined up waiting to buy this game" and by that they let FFXIV sit on the darkness that it's release put it, all the info or anything relevant that gets out, is how little or how far behind the game is compared to it's competitors <.<
So short of "Because miracles" how do you expect SE to pull out what has never been done in the MMO Scenes, when they are still acting like this is 1998 and grinding is hot and interesting.
