    Sorry, but SE did not make a perfect game. If anything, it was a lot of bumbling through "first times" where we can easily see future development of some content getting scrapped or just plain undercooked to say there's something most often padded by inane grinds. Not to reiterate the whole cycle of "What is Classic?!" and the impossibility of faithfully recreating the retail experience of the time with 1/10th a server's population at best, but the ability to smooth out the imperfections is actually a private server's biggest strength. Problem is, a lot of these places have neither the vision nor capability to pull it off. And it doesn't help having free ride cultists nipping at their heels when their nostalgic purity is defiled or legitimate bullshit comes to light.

    Much as we may have all personally enjoyed XI at some point, the rise of WoW clones inevitably tells the story of its imperfections. What strengths XI had simply weren't enough for most players of the era if they even deigned to give the game a chance. The weaknesses most certainly did it no favors.

    Every game has flaws. SE purposely made a game with pitfalls, paths that lead to nowhere, decisions that require alot of effort for minimal gain, and so on. Its a strategy game disguised as an action/rpg at its core. It wasnt just, this weapon should hit harder.. let me boost it.. this job should get invited more.. let me boost it. Most of these servers lack the nuance and understanding that the game was built around fundamentally. Yes there is plenty that need tweaking. Non Raja COP rings, BLM or SMN relic weapon, DRG AF and gear selection, Utsu in some ways, RDM soloability, and so on. But they should be tweaked through the same lense as initially intended. Or just make a fun, non-sensical server like CE and that works too

    Well, I concede that you were right in this case. I had no idea you were going to not only make the grind for armor +1 even WORSE than the accessory grind was, but also retroactively fuck that grind as well. Kudos.

    Yea and then you doubled-up on the Christmas event which was a complete bust as the server didn't come close to the kill requirement because no one wanted more shitty cosmetics. You didn't learn a damn thing.

    I only accepted this role because not only did I see these problems between Devs and Players as well but also because they accepted to better themselves. The same will go for players. It's a process and will not be instant but it will steadily improve.
    I can't speak on behalf of gameplay but I hope you will someday check the server out again and see how people improved their behaviour and the public areas are a lot more positive.
    This dude didn't even last a month into this gig. Wonder why
