    I can say BG was pretty "mean" during FFXI's heyday, but so were the other FFXI based boards as well, especially Alla.

    Yeah it gets depressing seeing nothing but negative comments from folks about the game. It's hard to enjoy an online game, when its like you're the only one out of thousands that enjoy it. I'll even go on to say that not sharing the same negative feelings towards the game with the rest of the players, is a blight to them. When I'm in a group in DF, it feels like they just want to get it over with so they can log off O_o. Pulling as FAST as you can, and you still finish the dungeon in the same amount of time if you were pulling a little less. Game itself, IMO isn't bad. It's just the director isn't doing what people want him to do and that just magnifies their hate for the game more.

    Anyhow, just thinking today that the OF has excuses not to AOE, but yet, a tank better pull big or else. o_o

    Many people complain because they enjoy what they're complaining about, though.

    Speaking of myself, when I pull several groups as a WAR, I do it because I find it more fun. And if I see that we wiped or the healer was having trouble keeping me up, or the DPS were a little slow, I ask if I should pull less/slow things down. Most of the time people want me to go ahead and keep going.

    As a DPS, dungeons are designed in a way that the standard pulls are 2-4 enemies, enough for AoE to be more efficient most of the time. If that's the case, and I'm going to AoE, I'd rather AoE a bigger pack, so I feel it's really worth it and not just a bit better.

    I's been a while since I last healed in a dungeon, but usually I referred big pulls, because at least then I could be active healing and not throwing a cure or two while reapplying and Bane-ing dots in between, which is what happeed in short pulls.


    All in all, I don't like big pulls to "get away with it already". I like them because they're generally more fun.

    Even as a filthy casual, small pulls are boring as fuck. You don't have to pull the whole dungeon while we're all still new and under geared, but, damn. There is no tension or excitement with pull 1 pack at a time.

    Gets better when apparently this guy was following tanks and healers around begging for help/begging for money in Kugane. Also an Abbo.

    This is common in the FGC as well.

    Well sure, if you don't care about something you move on. If you care and want it to stop sucking like it does, you complain. Complaining is cathartic. I love complaining <3

    I can't deny such undeniable truth, even though it doesn't apply to everyone, but the minority never matters. XD

    Side note, haven't played Street Fighter since Street Fighter Alpha 3. I hated FFXIII so much, but liked FFXIII-2(and then decided it would be the last single player FF game I would play).

    If you've played SF2/SFA3 you can play SF5 it's basically the same game

    The responses from the OF.

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    There's no reasoning with a guy who made sure to have a counter point for all possible points that would be used in response to his thread, before they are even made.

    Those counterpoints are actually made in response to some of the dumb shit logic in support of how Sprint currently is, as stated in replies to the OP. Might as well have unlimited Sprint inside cities at least.

    -players that say we have the convenience of Aetherytes:

    there are many scenarios where a player has to sprint to an Aetheryte, then after teleporting, sprint's affects have most likely worn off and the player is left to jog the rest of the way. then, the player has to jog back to another Aetheryte, and so on until after the 40 seconds of CD. plus, and yes im saying this again, if players like the Aetherytes, whats stopping them from using Aetherytes if unlimited sprint were to be added? it's not like an unlimited sprint would outclass these methods of travel, that is why i see no reason why sprint should not be unlimited. it's a simple QoL change.

    Here's another Forum Logic Best: http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/f...threads/340676 (hopefully the link works posted from my phone)

    Some players complain they are bored an point out the fact SB is a third copy/paste of 2.0 and point how bad it is, and OF defending it. Usual shit.

    Fixed your link.

    And to be fair, the OP was using Twitch as a reasoning for popularity or some shit, which one early poster said that MMOs are somewhat shit for retaining viewing numbers since the gameplay isn't really all that interesting to watch vs. play. That and once the current raid cycle is clear, there's not really any reason to watch someone streaming it beyond it being a person you like.

    We were also told ahead of time 4.0 was going to meet the status quo minus one less dungeon, so people being upset over that baffles me. Yeah you're bored, but they didn't promise anything either outside of Eureka which'll just be Diadem v3. Please keep buying fantasias and playing Glamour Fantasy XIV.

    OF bug report about there being errors in selecting your character's birthday.

    Yup.

    Spoiler: show
    Numerous errors at character creation birth date selection, present in every month
    Let's try this again.
    1.I am aware that the Eorzean calendar has 32 days.
    2.The first bug begins on day 29 of the first month.
    3.The umbral months all have identical copy-pasted data entry errors beginning on the eighth day.
    4.If the person curating the bug forums would actually look at the screenshots and the days on which the errors begin, you will find that these are - without question - data entry errors.
    5.This is most certainly a bug report.

    There are numerous data entry errors in the character creation birth dates for every month, leading to uncertainty about which date is actually being selected, and making certain dates impossible to select.

    Every date after an error is offset, and some months contain multiple errors, causing discrepancies of several days to accumulate.


    So yeah, guy apparently posted this before and is reposting it because they didn't give it the attention it deserved the first time.

    that thread is worth reading for the OP's response (third post) alone


    I wouldn't actually read it per se - I couldn't care less if I tried - but just the condescending tone of the OP in his reply to the first poster, this is autism on steroids and I love it


    here's hoping he gets more replies and becomes further and further incensed, because I'm bored as fuck today.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I have dyslexia and I'm fairly certain I've never mistook any of this stuff because they're not similar enough. I've mistook IV and VI plenty though.

    (Also I 'm fairly sure it's a troll topic though.)
