When do they NOT explode in nerd rage? They've not stopped 'exploding' since Beta came out. 'Boy who called wolf' rules are in effect for those forums.
While I understand that, I also know someone who is smuggly synical about ARR since he and his brothers got burned with how sh*tty 1.0 was. I simply dislike giving mentalities like that reason to complain, and that's exactly what the first five minutes of the live letter did.


My point is that the smugly cynical will complain no matter what and you should ignore them. It's entitled whining. Giving the pacing of this game 3 days is more than enough of a head start, especially seeming open beta carries over as well.

Head start is not supposed to give someone a distinct advantage over other people, and those that are complaining are viewing it as such.

*sigh* It's hard to keep my temperament in check when people keep expecting the world to be given to them. I have a feeling I'm going to be a very bitter old man as I age.

Was it ever said how smn will get its pets? Kind of hope it is a one on one class quest, and not just given to us or have to join the high level fights like 11 did.

Did you guys see that Goobbue in Ishgard, with the snow on his back? I thought that was pretty cool, looked like the falling snow was collecting on him.

Honestly fishing kind of sounded like a hybrid cross between what WoW had and What was in FFXI. You need the right gear and bait for the area that you are fishing in, but the fishing act it's self is not very complicated from what they showed.

Seems like the pot calling the kettle black, except that the kettle isn't even black. You can't be disappointed in life if you never have any hopes or aspirations, but that's a very cynical way to live, and frankly, sort of miserable. Calling other people "whiny" or "entitled" because they hoped or expected to be delighted is, in my opinion, making a choice to find a negative attitude where it doesn't necessarily exist. Not every one who is expressing disappointment is "raging" or feels entitled to anything except what they were already promised (or maybe what they *believed* they were promised).

It sounds like you're immune to disappointment because you are already, in your own words, "smugly cynical." If that protects you from having your feelings hurt or feeling sad and that's how you need to be then I guess that's fine, but that doesn't mean every one else is screwed up.

It's like the song says:

"Well don't you know that it's a fool who plays it cool, by making the world a little colder?"

Having passions and wanting and expecting good things to happen in your life is healthy and normal. Being so "cool" that you never feel any kind of disappointment or pain is a method for coping; it's not an ideal way to live life.

Seriously guys? How about you both just enjoy the live letter and stop causing drama for no reason.

I wish the beta was a lil longer, just because I have a couple friends who are gonna check it out. I hope it's enough time to hook them, but I fear it isn't.

Fishing won't affect the economy. Smiley: frown
Early access is August 24th Smiley: bah
Cap is at 20 in phase 4 because it's more a demo version of the game. Smiley: nod
PS3 screenshot feature will be implemented Smiley: nod
Arcanist will be DPS in Duty Finder. Smiley: dubious
Secret stuff they can't talk about yet with SMN. Pet itself is strong. Smiley: nod
Resurrect available for SCH. With 8-man content it will be better to have one SCH and one WHM. Smiley: cool
World Transfer Service: Available 2-3 weeks from launch. Smiley: nod
Repair cost for gear will be cheaper when it's nearly broken. Smiley: grin
Retry feature for primal battles. [:grin:]
Same server, same account, transferring items: no plans [:bah:]
Beauty/Barber Shop: can change hair, hair color, eye color, face paint/tattoos, beard, available in patch 2.1. [:cool:]
Talking about tanning machines for summer. [:oyvey:]
Fire resistant gear/swimsuits: seasonal event similar to 1.x this year. [:dubious:]

And the WHM unicorn was pretty interesting...
But mostly, the news about fishing upsets me...

#71KarlHungis, Posted: Aug 08 2013 at 8:16 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I would say that well meaning people like yourself or others create far more drama than you're preventing. The mere fact that people disagree does not automatically mean drama, but telling people to shut up or dismissing them out of hand is a guaranteed recipe for drama.

Have fun with that assumption, good sir. I have no desire no incentive to make a dedicated effort to prove to you specifically otherwise. May your future experiences with me instead be the example to disprove your assumptions of my person.

I am far from alone in my summary of the Beta Forums: easily upset, drama addicted, a place for extremely polarizing statements and opinions. I've found my desires and enjoyment avenues in this game.

And I've learned, through experience, to limit my expectations to what is reasonable. I don't 'expect to be disappointed' I simply expect people to be human. Things happen, dates changes, rarely does anything live up to our wildest dreams, and when they do, they're supposed to be appreciated as something special - not expected as a standard.

It's ok to hope and dream it's wrong to take that into the extreme and then get hostile because you let your imagination carry you too far and were disappointed.

I agree with all of this, but I hope you can understand that not every person who has expressed disappointment had "unrealistic" expectations. Yoshi had said (or been quoted erroneously as saying) that P4 would be a week. People saw a "leaked" promotion that said early access was a week. Maybe it was shopped, maybe it was just some over enthusiastic person who promised something they weren't authorized to promise, maybe it was legit and S-E changed their minds shortly after. Who knows? The point is, people didn't create these expectations from whole cloth.

ARR Forums might be a cesspool (I wouldn't know, I never go there), but that doesn't mean that each and every person who expresses surprise or disappointment on those forums or elsewhere is wrong or bad.

That's all.

I hope you have a great day.
