Meanwhile, there competitor releases this for a patch now: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodest...fe934b0a0a464e

This for a patch in a month: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodest...04f9b1d97b848d

And in June, releases an expansion that has:
  • Level Cap increase from 60 to 70 (because they are actually going to have new level 70 zones and group content)
  • Two new character classes
  • Adding swimming and diving to the game (last expansion they added flying)
  • Three new mega-zones (full zones, not one time corridors for use)
  • A fourth residential district (more stuff on housing)
  • 12 new dungeons (bringing the in game total to 59 4-man dungeons)
  • 2 new 8-man raids (with four more scheduled to be released over the coming year)
  • 1 new 24-man raid (with 2 more scheduled to be released over the coming year)
  • A new primal (world boss)
  • New gear and crafting recipes
  • Expanded inventory
  • Updates to the Battle System

All of that for close to the same amount of money you spend on SWTOR in a year.

But hey, they are going to give you a boss in April and might have the whole raid done in the same time their competitor has done eight full raids. Yeah, what an exciting deal.
Yeah, but we're getting ONE Op boss every 2 months'ish...so...um...um...

Seems half of you didn't listen when they said to give them "objective" suggestions on how to improve the command crates.

They even stated that if you write "RNG stinks" "Dump this system" etc that is not going to help them improve the system.

By them saying this have not figured out the system is here to stay. In a case like this, then it is time for people to actually come up with suggestions that might can improve the system instead of raging all over the forums saying "it stinks, etc." That is not doing any good.

What will do some good is some honest objective suggestions on how to improve it. "AND NO: SAYING DUMP IT, ETC IS NOT OBJECTIVE SUGGESTIONS."

Well, remember how many y'all got last year? And the year before?

Honestly I'm shocked that they're putting out any actual content this year. See... it could be worse!

There are HUNDREDS of direct suggestions on these forums, reddit and MMO fansites. They have chosen to ignore all of them, even going so far in their utter arrogance to say, "keep the feedback coming we are listening".

So you know why no one gives constructive feedback anymore - because it is less painful to slam your head into a brick wall.

There is a ton of constructive suggestions on what to do with the RNG, how to deal with the CxP, and they listened to a grand total of none of them. They didn't listen when the GC disaster was announced, they didn't listen to the extremely negative feedback when it was on PTS, and they sure as heck aren't listening now that it is live.

BW can put their smug comment of "give us feedback" where the sun doesn't shine, because that is how much they listen to it. So no one is going to waste their breath anymore since they do not listen.

And saying "dump It" when you had something that worked and now you don't IS A PERFECTLY VIABLE suggestion.

Meanwhile, their competitor releases this for a patch in February: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodest...fe934b0a0a464e

This for a patch in March: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodest...04f9b1d97b848d

The Far Edge of Fate patch is so large it has to be distributed over two months. And this is just meant to hold you over until the expansion releases.

And in June, releases an expansion that has:
  • Level Cap increase from 60 to 70 (because they are actually going to have new level 70 zones and group content)
  • Two new character classes
  • Adding swimming and diving to the game (last expansion they added flying)
  • Three new mega-zones (full zones, not one time corridors for use)
  • A fourth residential district (more stuff on housing)
  • 12 new dungeons (bringing the in game total to 59 4-man dungeons)
  • 2 new 8-man raids (with four more scheduled to be released over the coming year)
  • 1 new 24-man raid (with 2 more scheduled to be released over the coming year)
  • A new primal (world boss)
  • New gear and crafting recipes
  • Expanded inventory
  • Updates to the Battle System (the one complaint they have in the game is the combat seems too slow - they listened and so they are improving the system to be more in line with what players wanted).

All of that for close to the same amount of money you spend on SWTOR in a year.

But hey, they are going to give you a boss in April and might have the whole raid done in the same time their competitor has done eight full raids. Yeah, what an exciting deal.
Sorry to state the obvious but perhaps you would be happier playing that game instead of this?

Yeah, tbh, I've been wondering about that too, so have a few others...it's not Star Wars and I know nothing about FF, but it's hard to argue with all they've done to please their customers.

In many cases having a way to bypass GC is indeed the answer. PvP works best when gear is not a factor. Gear is preventing Ops players from playing the content they want to be playing. Unless the content you prefer is doable in non-set 230's you are faced with an enormous grind before you get to participate at the level you are used to.

Galactic Command has no business being the primary gear source for a large number of players. The 5.1 changes were done grudgingly and miserly. Austin is insistent that GC's core remains intact when that system itself has been shown to be harmful to retention.

GC will become irrelevant eventually. The longer it takes the more retention will erode. They cannot afford to drag their feet with "tweaks" and "tunings".
