    Question 1:

    Are there any plans to allow for player searches via "rank" for expansion missions or assaults?
    With the original City missions anyone can simply search for people of the same rank but COP/TAU/WOTG is more difficult to get partners for and results in having to either restrict oneself to Whitegate in hopes seeing a shout or waste time they would be doing other things ingame like soloing instead if doing said shouts in Whitegate.

    Question 1

    FFXI is continuing to wane in popularity and is set to be deposed as your leading MMO. What plans are in place for FFXI's decline and specifically, will servers be merged as player numbers fall?

    Question 2

    Many changes occurred in the game to make things more difficult for RMT players. But these changes, such as removing sellable drops from nms, have impacted legitimate players as well. Will any such changes ever be reversed?

    Question 1

    Are there any changes planned to enable more jobs to be able to viably tank? The way VIT and defense works make tanking via taking damage only viable for PLD for the most part, mainly due to damage mitigation from shield and other damage mitigation abilities available to PLD.

    Question 2

    Are there any plans to revamp some of the games job abilities and two-hours that are considered useless or nearly so? Defender is almost universally regarded as the most useless job ability as it practically amounts to lowering one's attack with no visible increase in damage taken from the defense boost. On the same note Mijin Gakure is widely regarded as the most useless two-hour. These are just two examples of many.

    Question 3

    Snack foods are by and far ignored since they use the same buff as normal foods. Would it be possible to give snacks their own buff separate from meals to allow for a meal, a drink, and a snack at the same time?

    Question 1

    While most people would agree that new HNMs and endgame content is always welcome, have you ever considered re-vamping the HNMs that currently go un-fought? HNMs such as Hydra, Jorm, Vrtra, ToAU Kings rarely get fought due to lack of rewards and are in fact some of the most challenging fights. Would you ever consider adding rewards to these monsters that reflect their difficulty? It would probably take a fraction of the programming it takes to create just 1 new HNM and yet it would feel like 6 or more brand new monsters have been added to the game for most players.

    Question 2

    Currently it is incredibly easy to hold Dark Ixion and Sandworm in a particular time zone, allowing certain people to monopolize them. Have you considered changing the repop timers of Dark Ixion and Sandworm?

    Question 3a

    Steaming big HNM fights for PW and AV has been popular lately, would you be willing to live stream a fight for AV and PW?

    Question 3b

    Are you aware that AV being a mystery for so long has discouraged more players from FFXI than it has attracted?

    Question 4

    Could there be a better system implemented for moving around lots of equipment? Such as assigning all Red Mage gear to one inventory slot which when moved to Mog House or Mog locker, will move all gear "assigned" to that slot. This would make changing jobs much more player friendly.

    Question 1:

    Will the compromised account policy ever be updated to satisfy customers who were compromised before the policy went into play.

    (several friends unable to retrieve their account due to be compromised before the policy)

    Question 1
    There is a reward for getting the initial 15 jobs to 75 which is Maat's Cap, how bout a reward for getting all 20 jobs to 37 (e.g. Windurst Rank 10 + all jobs 37 gets you Lafihna's Tunic or something). This would help ppl ungimp their jobs + help new players with Rank Missions.

    Question 3
    Why is the first level of the Magic Attack Bonus trait stronger than the next three levels combined? Shouldn't it scale more uniformly so that a main job Black Mage benefits more than a sub job?

    Question 4
    Some linkshells fight the Notorious Monster Tiamat by using Elemental Sealed Sleep II every single time it lands, on a rotation. They also hold it without damage in excess of 30 minutes, while Game Masters do nothing. This can be very annoying to other players. Are there any plans to make "Grand Wyrms" resist Elemental Seal Sleep spells or enter a rage mode after being held too long?

    Question 3
    Will the 4 month wait between updates become the 'norm' now that Rapture is coming out and the game gets older? The wait between Wings of the Goddess storyline can be rather frustrating, especially since right now you only get to do it every 2nd update.

    Question 4
    Are we ever going to see a 'full' expansion again, if the add-ons become succesful? With actual new areas without reusing the old textures?

    Question 1
    One of the huge advantages of 3rd party windowers, is the ability to swap 12+ pieces of gear while executing a command with the single push of a button. Are there any plans to expand the number of slots assigned to each macro from the current 6 to the desired 16-20 to persuade more people to abandon the use of 3rd party windowers?

    Question 1
    The augment system si very interesting however many players are frustrated at the apparenty randomness of this system. Players get augments that are useless to thier current jobs but amazing for their friend whom is standing next to them. Is there any way to influence the augmentations? Would you consider letting players have a small chance at influencing these augments so that players with lv 1 smn and pup don't constantly get pet buffing augmentation?
