    MPK Fix Opinions Poll

    When I complain about this "fix" SE felt so inclined to implement, there are always one or two people there to tell me to shut up and adapt. So, what do you all think? Please humor me by voting which of these best describes your feelings on the subject.

    I don't mind trained mobs despawning (i.e. not killing everyone at a zone line b/c someone was too lazy to sneak), but I think it should be tweaked in some manner to allow for BSTs to XP closer to how they used to do.

    I voted 1. Not quitting yet, but SE is on thin ice with me.

    How much is the monthly fee? 13$ a month? thats 156$ a year they'll loose per person. Count that most people have at least 2 mules, thats 180$ a year.

    The 4 people so far that voted they are quitting are going to accumulate SE 624-720$ per year in losses. I imagine tons of beastmasters quit over this, judging from the responses to SE's thread in Alla after the update. I can't help but wonder just how much revenue SE will lose over this.

    It should be tweaked so BSTs can exp the way they used to. and leave the 100% exp in parties with jug-summoned beast as it is...

    Let's go straigth to the point: train are fun. Almost every good memories I've about FFXI consist of huge train, mpk fest, and other impressive thing involving a lot of mobs in one location.

    It sound weird, but not being able to mpk your friend at zoneline when he is afk in joke, getting rapped by crawler while I zone in CN, watch a party train 10 gob near Selbina, bogy near delkfut or simply watch a party get decimated at Kuftal zone is hilarious.

    Oh well.

    The scary thing is, SE obviously expected this to interfere with BST to some extent because they gave them two new perks in this update. These perks in no way made up for the loss though. It's the equivalent of smashing into a parked Ferrari and leaving behind a "sorry" note and $20 for his trouble.
    LOL
    Best analogy ever.

    There was nothing wrong with the game mechanics that existed before the patch. The problem was (and is) that GMs didn't deal effectively with players they knew trained repeatedly.

    These same people are going to find other mechanics now to grief in the same way they always have.

    In the end, this "fix" solves nothing but the price inflation of beastmaster items.

    You played a Ranger, didn't you? Now you're just relishing in the fact that another job got hurt because "your job sucks."

    Go kill yourself please. Saves us a lot of trouble.

    I dont get why rngs are all "yeah serves them right they can deal like we did'

    Rngs were nerfed because they were TOO powerful. Bst were nerfed because people trained others and bst got shot in the back for something that doesnt pertain to their job. Sure you can mpk easy with Bst but the leave option is there in the game and a play mechanic for a long time. It's like like SE made it so bsts have to be a certain distance from a mob or they just have to buy diff gear and watch themselves.. they screwed up the job completly.

    I'm a BLM, if they nerfed it, I wouldn't care. I've been playing this job long enough that I don't care how bad I could suck or rock.

    Oh, and SE, WILL fix this ;o. The length of time is whats concerning.
