Maybe we can play a game of "Things YagyuX would rather hear from SE rather than 'We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes our users and humbly request your understanding."

I know ZAM has some creative posters out there!

#16ninechars, Posted: Aug 31 2013 at 7:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I have to agree. Just stop saying it. It isn't personal and no one really believes it. We do believe you want to get the problem solved so we can all move on to actually playing the game, but to say some generic copy/pasted statement gets old fast. Don't tell us your sorry tell us what your doing to fix the problem. The posts never actually say what they are doing to correct the problem.
#17BobthePukeSlinger, Posted: Aug 31 2013 at 7:55 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Instead of shedding crocodile tears they can pretend it it's the year 2013 and properly PREPARE for and launch an MMO.

Actually it's a cultural thing. At work, I've got a few very large customers in Japan and when dealing with them, statements of that nature are essentially requisite to maintaining the business relationship as a sign of respect on both sides. It's not only extremely common when dealing with Japanese folks, but you'll also get way further with them if you know their cultural norms and go out of your way to express things in that manner towards them as well.

Well, no, but... I guess what I'm saying is that it wouldn't hurt for Yoshida to at least offer, you know?

Well, I was there for 1.0 when they truly screwed it up. This game was rebuilt on speculation and hope. SE truly didn't believe this many people would jump in as fast or in such quantities considering the bad-mouthing by everyone 3 years ago.
But you know what? The days I can't get in, I could go play WoW or Rift or a few other games. But I don't. I hang around all the FFXIV forums in between log-in tries. I read all these posts by you special snowflakes having your tantrums because you're just one of a few hundred thousand people who can't get in. I had issues with my account and in time got it fixed. I still don't have access to my 1.0 character, but I'm going to wait til this all dies down. It's called patience.
Grow the **** up.

It may have something to do with the general age/life experience of most gamers but after a decade plus of this whole generations of gamers have come to accept it as the norm.
Here you are, spreading your cheeks and face down.

Of course, you are the one in control, not the company you're offering yourself to. Keep repeating that to yourself while you bite that pillow, sweety. "I'll get my money's worth! I'll get my money's worth!"

MMO fans in particular are nothing but the gamer equivalent of battered wives, "you don't hear the things SE tells me when nobody else is around! SE truly LOVES me! You don't understand!"
This doesn't work that well when you're one of those battered wives.
