I really hope these 2 things do not make it into FFXIV, and the reasons are many but heres my main reasons that makes me worried.
1. PVP always seem to always create chaos when it comes to balancing abilities and classes which was mainly made with PVE in mind. Causing a rollercoaster like I experienced playing WOW for several years. Not fun at all. If PVP is sort of a minigame and not impacting class balancing I will be ok with that.
2: Content Finder, if made cross serverwide, it will almost certain ruin the community people have on their servers. Whats the point of being in a LS if you can click: Queue random dungeon, complete dungeon, exit and rinse and repeat. Making people lazy and take the paths of least resistance time and time again.
3. Content Finder can also possible cause people to treat other people badly as they know they most certainly know they will never see that person again. And look what happened in WOW with the dungeon finder, people never went outside Stormwind or Orgrimmar to venture into the world, but got portaled directly into the dungeons.
Even Blizzard is trying to make people go back out into the world as they saw the SW/ORG, turned out to be nothing more than a lobby for getting into dungeons.
I hardly saw anyone talk in chats to organize a run after WOW made their dungeon finder and I find that sad as I love talking to the people I meet on my server and become friends with them. But with Content Finder, im just scared people will get lazy and take the path of least resistance as they did in WoW.
Please let me know what you guys feel about these 2 aspects that is making its way into 2.0. I personally hope they reconsider these. At least make Content Finder only work on the server you are on, not cross-server as they plan on making it.
If they make Content Finder cross-servers, and majority of the players has asked for it to happen, I just wonder if those people have no interest in making friends on their servers or just too lazy to start up a party on their own. Cause working together is imo the main part I play MMORPGs.
