Reraise was ok, number of times I would be out doing something and get killed for a random reason, then have to travel back which was highly annoying. Apoc was a good idea for that part, however the ability to zombie everything was not, because of it things were made to simple.VW has this problem because they failed to do what Abyssea did, which was make rewards that you could obtain with effort. A topic that has been beaten down so much, but yet is completely true. VW drops are just Abyssea, but made with old style torture of trying to get things you want.VW ... really!? Yeah I really enjoyed watching bodies LS members of mine needed rot in a box because I couldnt simply "add to pool". Now the gimp in the alliance that failed up the entire fight (or being afk) leeching off others getting the drop instead of my buddy who carried both their weight, thats just icing on the cake.This is because SE has their mind set of not listening to players. We told them as soon as they announced how tickets would work, that is was a bad idea. They actually think they fixed it I guess, because they did change from their original plans of making tickets R/EX. This was a massive problem SE created by not listening to the players, and chances are we will see it again with the new 2-hours, one can only hope I am wrong.Hey though if 5 people who already got the drop get it again, before he does, they can sell their tickets for millions upon millions each and he can pay 15-50M for it.Simply because thats what VW was made to do, everything about VW screams time sink. Low drops, no sharing drops, 1500 Heavy Metal Plates that drop 1/5 fights. The entire event was made like that, and has screwed players since its creation because of it.That or he can spend more time doing VW than people used to spend camping HNMs yet still no closer to getting the drop. Meanwhile I go 1/1 on a body I'll never use that someone else just popped for the 300th and counting time. All this sounds like a dream come true.
People act like Abyssea and VW are so similar and designed the same. In honesty the only things they really share are procs, atma, and abyssite. When people complain about Abyssea they say it is to easy, leveling is fast, you can actually get gear without taking to long, things like that. VW is the exact opposite, VW is that it takes to long to get things because its luck based, anyone can get any piece of gear at random, want it or not, while anyone who wants it can be just as well of, and get nothing for the trouble.All I read from you is complaining that people have it easier now, and want to enjoy it. Rather than wanting to have to play the game like a life style to get good things in it. Just because you play it to relax or have fun doesn't mean you don't want good gear, weapons, or to play it well. Sorry to tell you but sometimes, easy, is funner than wanting to rip your hair out of your head because something is annoying or a pain in the ass to do.Not just from you but all I read here is FFXI was too hard QQ easy buttons FTW!
