*bows* perfect. Best response award.
Really, I was thinking *the opposite*, considering how the OP in question was the most constructive, well thought out post I've seen in years.
Originally posted by MosesZD Here's a post on the official server that's soon to be deleted.... The kind of 'innocent post' people come here to complain about: Okamakiri.8746 The idiocy and fanboism in this thread is astounding. Not releasing planned changes WEEKS in advance is a terrible practice in any game. In 10+ years of MMOs, I have seen countless of examples of terrible design decisions being reversed or changed prior to patch going live because people were given ample time to discuss them, do the math, and bring to light issues with them BEFORE the devs just push them live and potentially cause permanent damage to the game. Using “get rich quick” schemes as an excuse to avoid this common industry practice is just pure stupidity. Btw, it’s also a terrible practice to NOT have a scheduled down time for patches and hotfixes and to feel it’s perfectly fine to kitten on your customers with a 3 minute notice before you boot them from the game while they’re in the middle of an event or a dungeon run. Anyone defending such practice is either ignorant or blinded with their infatuation for the game. This post will probably be deleted for making too much sense and being too blunt for this sensitive community. https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/game/gw2/Where-are-the-patchnotes-for-the-nov-15th-patch/first#post730043 At least he's self-aware he's gone too far. But not self-aware enough to understand he's a complete jerk. I'm sure, in a day or two, he'll start a thread about how 'mean' ANet is on some forum somewhere... And a bunch of people will, as always, fall for it...
An intelligent person would see past the *slight* attitude and see the rock-fing-solid point he just made.
Banning him for being confrontational while ignoring his message is akin to grammar nazis. A devolution of reason.
It's a bit frightening to witness this, to be honest.
Originally posted by Popori I wonder what ANet is doing to cause such anger and distrust amonst its userbase?
While you make a clever point, it's unfair because you'll always get users who feel this way, no matter what you do.
Originally posted by SirFubar I'm just glad they are banning all the QQers. I just hope to see all these people out of the game asap, seriously. Those people are the plague of every single MMO because most of them are MMO hoppers and they won't ever be happy with any kind of MMO because they don't know how to love a great game for what it is, even if they clearly bought a game that wasn't for them.
This is true.
These people ruined WoW for me by DEMANDING homogenized classes (if that class has this skill, so should I!)
But the fault lies with the developers for listening to them. Never forget that.

My statement was a general one. Not naming names here nor was it pointed to the OP.
Originally posted by taus01 Originally posted by TheIronLegion Sounds more like youre grasping at straws to me. Anet is sticking to their game plan and keeping the game as grind free as possible. But at the same time they want to deliver new content and new things to work towards for the players who like shiny things. Trying to find a happy balance between the two is hard - hell, I'd like to see you try it in practice. But what's most astounding is that people are doing all this whining, bitching and moaning and are totally forgetting one fact. We're barely 3 months into the game's release and they're already bringing us new content. On top of that their time table was very tight. They had August to release, september to prepare for the Holloween event, and then octover/early november to prepare for this. The fact that they are so organized internally that they can pull all of this off in a timely manner is quite impressive. Three months into release most other games were still fixing class balance issues and terrain glitches.
Which is what they should be doing since there are still hundreds of class bugs, balance issues and terrain glitches!
Not to mention them spending time on developing a "diminishing rewards system" to make up for their bad dungeon design that was so full of holes (literally) that every single dungeon had a shortcut. Yes, every single one had at least one exploit or still has them.
Screw the new content, fix the game.
Or have both, you self centered gamer.
At least half of the things you are pointing out as "truth" on the first post are straws you are grabbing so you can use it as a valid point and things that actually the players and their behaviour are responsible off instead of the game itself.
Sit down and think for a minute, then read carefully again and check the backgrounds of your posting, then you might understand what's wrong with it.
While you are at it, you should also think about your overgeneralization of things you did here by lenghts, that are not as bad as you portray them in game.
I helped level 30s to finish the story, I helped 35s in explorable modes aswell.
The beauty of this game is that you can indeed beat the dungeons with ANY type of team as long as you play properly.
By that I don't mean graveyard runs either.

I think you have issues. You flail FFXIV around as the best and shiniest release up to date when its having clear issues and it has not even officially launched (for the second time) yet, and then you criticize how the other company makes their business?
Let Arenanet do their business the way they want, if it is bad business model then their income will dry up at some point anyway. Your word has no effect on the outcome what so ever, what you are doing here is just looking for others acceptance of your thoughts because you cant come to terms with them yourself. Please grow up.

Nah this thread was linked in another active post where the OP of this thread was white knighting FFXIV.
Indeed. But also my bad for replying here, I didnt realize it was this old of a thread. However my claim still stands about him.

White Knighting FFXIV Version 1.0 was just... think of it like the planets aligning in our solar system... it was special.
