    If you want to support returning players, you need to make it easier to install and update. No one wants to wait 10+ hours to play FFXI.

    I'm not quite sure how it took you 10+ hours to install FFXI.

    Years and years of game data and graphics also equate to a large sum of files too (gigabytes worth).

    The initial download after installing takes 10 hours easily depending on your service.

    That's because it does file-by-file which means the computer has to open a connection, download the file, and close the connection so you are losing most of your internet speed because of this.

    It doesn't matter if you're on Dialup or 100MB/sec, a 5 kilobyte file is still downloaded in a split second, and the connection open/connection close still take about the same amount of time.

    The best way that SE could fix this is update the Seekers Edition Download so that the files contained within aren't 5+ years old, so the user doesn't need to download 5 years worth of game updates and anybody looking to return could download the newest Seekers Edition from the website and it would actually be faster to just reinstall altogether.

    That, and now that we have ONLY the PC version.. another thing they could do is looking into releasing .zip files that contain all of the changed files that users could download, and it would dump the files directly into a POL folder, run POL then POL just needs to take those files and put them where they belong for an update that only takes 30-90 seconds.

    To be quite frank, the vw campaign doesn't do as much as you think it does.

    drop rate is so low that capping lights doubles the drop rate, yes. but going from 1% to 2% is irrelevant.

    I've always felt that developers say/do stuff like that to be intentionally misleading you into believing that something is better than it actually is.

    They'll say things like "30% increased ____!!!"

    And what they REALLY mean is "_____ increased by 30% of its existing value."

    A lot of games do that, and it is annoying as all crap because they don't tell you which is which, and sometimes it really IS an increase of 30% but you assume it to be 30% of whatever the thing is, and end up NOT taking something that's actually good.

    They really need to invent better language or terms or something so you can know what you're REALLY getting.

    Business is about making money, not about clarity. If they are honest, you can't be tricked by it.
