    Is is that hard to accept that 1.0 was shit and it was nuked because nobody wanted to play it? All those "cool" ideas were never part of the game to begin with despite being promotional material before launch. You guys keep going on and on about Yoshida "not delivering" on some promises yet Tanaka seems to get a pass on all those things he said would be in the game but weren't.
    Yes, I do remember all that stuff but it was just that... stuff. Empty promises that were never included. And don't give me the "he didn't have time!" excuse, that shit should've been there at launch or at least the very first patch... you do remember that right? Three months for 3 NMs. Yet it's ARR the game with "no content", go figure lol.
    Maybe you didn't mind the EXP gate either right? Because it was Tanaka's baby?

    XIV already has Colibri's. Clearly we need to follow suit and have battle fields locked by grinding senseless merit points and job points and call it content.

    And 72 hour nms locked to one 24 man fc.

    also don't fix ffxiv's alliance forming function for 2 years after said nms are introduced.

    The maddest. Also 100% true, lol.

    Yoshi-P gets absolutely shat on, but he's doing way more for ARR/HW/SB than Tanaka did for XI & 1.0. Granted, some additions and subtractions are questionable, he's still pushing for more. I know you people remember waiting 2-4 months for a shitty update in XI, haha. Ironically, even if it takes a lot of time, Yoshi-P comes through on most of the promises he makes.

    I was one of the first 50 ARMs in 1.0. Partly because there was literally nothing to do but craft. It was a beautiful but absolutely fucking empty game. I stuck with it and dumped more hours into it than I care to admit. There was so little progress it's a joke. Hence why it was eventually nuked. I came back during heavansward, but never really enjoyed the game again.

    Yoshida has done an extremely good job considering the dumpster fire he took over imo. He's made a lot of mistakes, but I'm not sure anyone else could have kept it going this long.

    Tanaka's XIV was a great idea that was executed with the competence of a drunken homeless man.
    Yoshida's XIV is a uninspiring, cookiecutter idea executed with flawless precision.

    Meriting was definitely mindless and unfun. But since you were forced to group in XI, it was occasionally made extremely fun by the people you grouped with. No such luck in XIV with its lack of server community and overworld content. I can't even be entertained while I grind my FATEs for xp unless people start shouting random funny shit.

    Don't forget that it takes him a year or so to react to changes, and the complete lack of content that is engaging. Oh, and his lack of testing.

    I will say that maybe 90% of my groups are just sad and quiet. it's eerie beating an entire dungeon without anything except maybe a "grats" or "gg" at the very end. but then you get those rare parties with people who actually talk and it can be a lot of fun. I miss that and wish it would happen more often. the community in XIV is nice and all, but way too quiet.

    talking is fine, but people who stop to talk frequently make things go notably slower

    built in vcom would make this a non issue, but until then I won't be won over by making an already grindy objective take longer

    You can't be a kawaii waifu catface spamming douche nozzle with your voice. Unless you're that guy who meows in voip, about as close you can ever get.

    i actually cannot talk coherently at all irl. even listening to others takes more concentration for me than simply reading words, and since words dont "linger around" after being said, if i miss a word or two suddenly i have no clue what a person just said.

    granted i tend to ramble when i type, but at least its (usually) understandable. ;;

    Just wanted to confirm, do I "meow" or do it the JP way "nyaa~" ? lol

    Sounds kinda fun, not that I do it.

    Voice chat + playing > Text chat + playing. I won't waste time text chatting in a group unless its absolutely necessary.
