You know, as I was reflecting on the XIV video released today (a smallllll let down considering 75% of it was rehashed, and the next 25% looked like the opening scene of Final Fantasy Tactics. I'm still very happy with it overall though, mostly because magictek armor, bahamut, and FFT is awesome -- Just my opinion though.)
Can you imagine if you are Nobuaki Komoto (original FFXIV director) and while you are doing whatever you've been doing for the past few months the new FFXIV is being built.
Then the ARR video comes out, and you realize "they literally had to make a fricking CG video to destroy the world I made because the world I made was so craptastic that is had to be destroyed, and not just destoryed, but destroyed by a meteor. A meteor with a dragon in it. A meteor with a dragin in it that uses world destroying magic........... Damn, my world fricking sucked."
I know it's not 100% his fault, and let's not kid ourselves. We don't know the inner workings at SE. But at the end of the day, they had to spend millions of dollars just to destroy the world this guy made.
And you thought you've been having a bad day!!!
