    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    The Official Forum fail thread: This game wasn't meant for alts.

    Bringing it back. Someone save me.

    Thread about game not being alt-friendly (can't mule to alts)

    http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/t...anics-for-Alts.

    highlights:


    I agree! Let's let anyone send mail to anybody else. I look forward to the 50k messages from gold sellers.

    The game is more or less built around not needing alt characters.
    Considering most people FATE run their alt classes without doin a single dungeon with them, why should we even assume you can be competent at what you're doing on an Alt class?
    Similar thread:

    http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/t...on-friend-list

    Why do you need alts to mule? Between your inventory and two retainers, that should be plenty of space. If it isn't, you're a hoarder. You have a problem and the devs shouldn't be catering to you.
    And just fyi, multiboxing is cheating:

    http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/t...shed-light-on?

    I think it's a form of cheating that facilitates botting and/or abusing rewards for events and other things (get 4 of one thing while others only get 1, because they don't have 4 chars at once). Including just plain farming.
    (same person)

    How about multi-boxing for crafting? Macro your craft and press on #1, press on #2, press on #3, press on #4...make 4x the profit in 1x the time...

    That kind of abuse.

    In Atlantica Online, people openly abused special instances called individual dungeons (from 1 to 3 players allowed). They need a key and stay open for a set duration, under which they have to be completed to get the bonus reward. Everyone in the instance gets the bonus reward. You go solo, you get 1, you go with 3 total, each gets 1. And those instances didn't level sync you, so you could overgear most of them, by far - and thus solo them. Then bring your 2 multibox, and get triple reward. Thus making the honest solo-boxer get 1/3 of the reward.

    How did it affect the solo-boxer? Well, the best rewards were sellable (new mercenaries sometimes), for billions. So it gave a much higher supply, reduced the price faster and also caused inflation vs that player because every multiboxer would make more money/time.

    Legal, perhaps. Cheating, definitely.

    For dungeons, well there's tomes. She gets 300 philosophy tomes per run, you and I get 100 tomes. How is that fair?

    FFXI forums just feel so tame compared to the incomprehensible level of idiocy, fanboyism, and denial that make up the entire population of the XIV forums.

    I almost literally hurt all over from brain damage when reading the stupid mind numbing shit people on that forum spew out. Its mostly figuratively, but very close to literally.

    I expect good things from this if people can be bothered to fathom the depths of stupid there to bring back the kernels of hilarity we can all laugh at and/or cry deeply over the fact these people are existing in the same society as us.

    So, the "DPS Healer" craze.

    Started with this topic; OF had a bitchfest reaction to the OP: http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/t...and-here-s-why.

    Then someone made another topic in General Discussion for who knows why: http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/t...e-Lazy-and-Bad.

    And now it's just a subject that's mock-worthy, I guess: http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/t...PS-in-dungeons

    Delve into the stupidity at your own risk.

    Almost admire ppl who keep going back there and retain their sanity. I visited the OF's once, dunno what the fuck I was thinking, but I'm never going back again.

    The worst part is these people don't get banned but actual sane posters who provide feedback and don't troll or do anything bad will get banned on a whim for no real reason whatsoever.

    Want a good laugh, read any post by some guy named "Swishytail" every post he makes is defending SE and insulting someone else, he's never posted anything intelligent.
    I think it's a form of cheating that facilitates botting and/or abusing rewards for events and other things (get 4 of one thing while others only get 1, because they don't have 4 chars at once). Including just plain farming.
    Yeah that schalazeal guy is up there with Swishytail.

    The OF tends to be great entertainment if you don't think too hard about the majority of the posts there. I tend to dabble in some of the threads sometimes, and the responses can be hilarious sometimes (especially the one about multiboxers being cheaters).

    How the fuck can people defend lockouts? Is the lack of oxygen having their head so far up SE's ass finally getting to them?

    I hate these threads because they make me remember to read the OF more which results in tears of both laughter and sadness. Damnit, Ksandra.

    if it doesn't have a lockout, the hardcorest players will beat it and get every drop form it in the first 2 weeks, then complain for 2 months that it's a 2 day game again.
    More from that thread earlier.
