    In fairness, the dev team was fully capable of cashing this particular check: they simply chose to build a system that XIV's back-end was not capable of fully supporting (which was a really stupid...

    They need to branch into horizontal gearing, where new content drops situationally-useful gear that doesn't flat-out overpower what came before it.

    XI offers a good example of this. At the end of...

    This would be great, so long as individual airship-houses aren't rendered for random players (could you imagine the virtual blackout that people could engineer by gathering a few hundred of them...

    I personally don't. I realize you may struggle to understand that, but as I've admitted before, I don't Raid. I'm 99.99% certain I'll never so much as attempt the Ultimate fights, so I'll never have...

    Possibly. Or they might bother joining dungeons because they don't care to run any content all that much, thereby affecting your queue times (could make them better, could make them worse, depending...

    Personally, I think this is worth doing. Ideally what we'd see is an expansion launched with several 'base' itemization paths, 3-4 being a good target. These wouldn't just have different sub-stat...

    They also fit the criteria of legitimate players looking to evade the Housing purchase restrictions that SE implemented, or players simply looking to avoid FC invite spam. I created a personal FC for...

    Both opinions are valid, and comments like this - on both sides - are the real crap. There's nothing added to any discussion by attempting to invalidate someone else's opinion. I mean, are you really...

    These would be good steps, I second that. I also think it'd be great to see - which is implied but not explicitly stated here - the flexibility to run content without having exact numbers of people....

    Nothing in my post was linked to self esteem, self worth, or pride. You are absolutely misapplying the word in my case. A sense of detachment from the world, a desire for immersion not based on...

    Firstly, I'd suggest looking up the definition of the word ego. You're misapplying the word.

    Secondly, everyone has the right to make purchasing decisions on their own internal set of metrics....

    I imagine reviewers have to do this all the time. I'm sure organizations like PC Gamer or IGN or whatever try to place people into their 'preferred' areas, but what if nobody on the staff...

    To get back to the OP, no, selling runs in-game is unfortunately not against the ToS. SE has chosen to permit clears in exchange for Gil, a massive loophole that allows them to lazily ignore the...

    I'm sure SE could simply record things as video files, rather than choosing to render them. Hell, players could choose to view the cutscenes from the main game menu, rather than from within XIV, much...

    I think it's a fine line between subjective and objective, obviously. One thing I'd point out, though, is that there's a difference between one's opinion regarding some piece of content, and what...

    I agree with the first part, not the grind comment here. Or rather, I think grinds, when well-designed, can organically boost content lifespan.

    For example, let's consider the leveling process in...

    Very good point. Also, again, it cannot be said enough: the XIV dev team is shooting itself in the foot by creating throwaway content.

    It's bone-headed stupidity to design content, and then...

    That could potentially alleviate the Glamour log issue, but there are still the other problems I mentioned. The clipping one, for instance, is huge. Do I want to wear a big hat? Well, I'd best be...

    100% agree. A significant portion of FFXIV's primary 'content', the carrots at the end of many of the sticks, are entirely superficial fluff. That stuff needs to be in the game, but XIV focuses on it...

    I agree with posters above, both. That said, I think to a large extent that is something that can be laid at SE's feet as well. Realistically speaking, they've built FFXIV to target the lowest common...

    Fair points, but I honestly think there's more at play here than just the bad underlying engine. I mean, FFXI had more limitations, and managed to have much more varied and longer-lived content. A...

    Having difficult stuff doesn't mean having large-scale, throw-more-people-at-it stuff. At least to me.

    Also, as an aside, the draw-distance issue really shouldn't exist. I struggle with the idea...
