Greetings!

Thank you for your feedback regarding Meeble Burrow entry restrictions. We have some new details about adjustments planned for the future of this content.
First off, our highest priority at the moment is to eliminate the bugs that have been occurring in Meeble Burrows. After, we will be focusing on the following:

Moblin pheromone sack stock when starting out

We would like to make changes so that when beginning Meeble Burrows, you receive 5 Moblin pheromone sacks.
This is not only for players who will begin Meeble Burrows down the line, we are looking into methods for addressing players who are already doing this content as well.

Increase to the maximum stock of Moblin pheromone sacks

While we are not planning to remove the cap completely, when new expeditions and areas are added we are planning to increase the cap on Moblin pheromone sacks.

Shortening of re-issuance time

In the future we are planning to make it so the time when Moblin pheromone sacks are issued can be shortened by certain requirements, such as consuming points or other means.

Also, since the concept of Meeble Burrows was to create content that could be enjoyed and progression can take place in short spurts of time, our focus is not on making adjustments so that clearing the content can be rushed, instead we will be focused on overall improvements so that even those that have not completed this content can benefit.

Not too much time has passed since this content was implemented, but we are closely monitoring the play trends for all players and plan on making adjustments moving forward so that this content is fun and easy to play. If you have any other feedback, we would be happy to hear it!

glad to hear they are easing up a bit. I like the idea of being able to play in short spurts, but it is sort of anti-thetical to having to get people together. I don't think they understand that it can be really difficult to get even 2 other people together to do stuff, and given what I am hearing that for some of them 3 isn't really realistic... well then it just gets harder.

They really need to understand that the reason people do big gobs of content all at once is because it helps justify the investment of starting a group. It's hard to want to shout for an hour to get 2-5 reasonably well-geared and competant people together for only a tiny chunk of content.

Now, given that unlike voidwatch people can't come at all without the KI, it will be even more annoying to get groups together to do a decent chunk of a run because welp, a certain percentage of people who actually would have been interested will have just done it a day or two before, so they can't do a whole run...

When it comes to sitting around not doing anything for long periods of time, only being active for short windows, and marginal changes and sidegrades I'd say FFXI players were the perfect choice for politicians.

Every single event they make turns out that way. It sucks for them that their playerbase is such a whiney bunch of sniveling brats, and that nothing they do (no matter how much they cater to players' "feedback") will ever be met with anything but more spoiled brat butthurt. I mean, if you've all been playing this game EVERY DAY FOR YEARS ON END, it can't be that bad. Would it kill you to just STFU and enjoy the game every now and then?
