Should have just let you enter. Hit lamp. Game /random 1-50. You get 50 your receive KI for 1 piece of 100 fl gear. Same result in rarity. Just as luck based as current event. Within range of both hardcore and casuals. Perfect event!
Luck a sh*t event makes. Luck determining drops is fine. Luck deciding if you win or loose is BULLsh*t. Win/loss should be based on ability, coordination, etc. When groups of super skilled, inhumanly geared, coordinated (voice chat) players can't beat an event without star aligning luck, its a problem. To those fighting for the casuals, wtf kinda event requires 3rd party voice chat, 1setuop (schx2, redonculous geared to the teeth ddx4), not to mention actually being a superstar level player on top of the gear, and still needs lottery level luck. Where does the casual fit in at all? Worst event design in history of ffxi. Luck based events are NOT FUN. For anyone.
We don't disagree here. The event sucks as bad as anything SE has ever produced, and that says a lot. I did it a few times, decided it was total crap and never went back and I won't unless it drastically changes for the better. I HATE luck based content anyway, and the more that's stacked on the more I hate it. Nyzul Isle is flat out awful in every conceivable way, and if I had a hand in producing it I'd be incurably sick too.
As for 'tell SE' check every forum for the last 10 years. IF they respond, its excuses. If they do anything its 2-5 YEARS late. You act like no one ever thought of the brilliant idea to tell SE. Were not making a big enough fuss? Its now the players fault SE isn't listening to us? Have you seen the sh*t storms every few months over everything from billing issues to balance to content? Im sorry but ***** you. Players have screamed until hoarse at SE for YEARS. Of all things we dint ***** enough ? THATS the answer to the million dollar question? Bull.
Have you seen the US and EU official forums? There's barely a blip of activity anywhere on there. Have you seen the feedback forum here? It's dead, buried, and decomposing. You can say "***** you" to me all you want, but yeah we are a very silent player base. Are we at fault? No, SE is 100% at fault. Should we have to complain to get good content? No, but we do. Do they listen like they should? No. Do we do enough to counter that? No.
You saw the throngs of players BEGGING for 'play as a monster' right? SE always aims their development at what we post about obviously. Rdm is useful! Smn got that new avatar they were promised 5years ago! Bet has more charmable mobs! Console people dont DC after VW! Everyone is happy with their billing systems! SE listens! All you have to do is go to official forums and ask and it shall be given unto you! We just haven't asked! /Facepalm
What I'm saying is if you want any chance at all of things being fixed you have to completely inundate them. **** you might need a PW type scandal to get them to make a move. Will the event be fixed if everyone demands it? Probably not. Will it be fixed if you just cheat and sit here and angrily justify it? No chance at all. I'd rather take the probably not than the no chance at all.
You know what I do see on the official forums besides the few people complaining about Neo-Nyzul? I also see people defending it and demanding it NOT be changed. They think it's just fine for whatever reason. Probably because they can cheat2win and still come out looking like a boss. You think SE doesn't listen? I bet they listen to those people unless they're completely drowned out and the opposing posts get 100s of likes. That doesn't happen. The status quo is maintained.
But hey it's fine. Just sit there and turn on your cheats and get your gear. It's cool. SE will probably see Neo-Nyzul as a rousing success and give us more events just like it ASAP! Come up with all the justifications you like. The "sticking it to The Man" ones are especially good. Just please don't come here and complain when The Man decides to stick it back. I really don't want to hear it because you know it's the consequence to your actions.
Here's kind of a general question. Are the people who don't do Neo-Nyzul because it's not fun or do it but without cheats the stupid ones?
