Criticism doesn't have to be constructive. There is nothing wrong with having an opinion about something; just understand that if that opinion paints FFXIV in a negative light(no matter how warranted you feel it may be or how accurate it is), people are going to pile up on you.
People rate up what they want to see more of, and they rate down what they want to see less of. It's really just that simple. It's not some grand conspiracy of fan boys trying to hide "the truth".
I never said there was any conspiracy, but I've personally been bombed in these forums for being critical of the game. Not every time(because some examples are obvious), but most times I either give my personal idea of what would have been better or an example of where it is done better in another game. Even if the criticism is constructive, people here will press the red arrow in defense of the game even when it's not actually defending XIV, just Final Fantasy in general.
There's enough non-constructive, single line "I don't like this therefore it sucks" posts in existence already.
Id rather see a full bodied recreation of the primal, just smaller summon sized. I am not too keen on the amorphous genie look
A statement saying what they don't like, why they don't like it and what they would prefer it to be. People can rate up or down in these forums for whatever reason they feel necessary. You can rate down all their posts because they put the E in front of the H for all anyone cares. I just had a poster tell me that their response to my post had absolutely nothing at all to do with what I said in that thread, but the sentiment of another post I had previously made. Press the 'grudge' button. It's whatever...
I'll give them the credit for coming out and saying that they were doing it for the sake of doing it, rather than in response of something I had said then and there. These excuses of not being descriptive enough or constructive enough are pretty lame.
Only hips + boobs all day and hips + boobs all over my icecream
30 bucks is almost free
Its personal preference and all, but yes we need to educate WoW players that this is OUR game, these are Characters and not Toons. Time to beat that into them one at a time.
