I'm no troll but the above posts show that some in the community is oblivious to the fact that long time casuals are going into "limbo" waiting for the next expansion to hit. When a good portion does this the server loses population it strains everyone else.
Well your on Post Number 2 to the thread you created. You say we are oblivious to what exactly that it is dying?
You admit to paying the game and waiting for the "Next thing" well SE and your self have just posted "Next expansion" - thats what the next thing is.
People like me are not oblivious to the fact there are no new major stuff we want to do but we are happy with what is currently there. I still have VW to go through and get done, I still have +2s to do (9 jobs) and I still want to level up another 3 jobs to 99 - then I will need those +2s as well.
If you are telling me you are bored and nothing to do then does that mean you have done every thing? All the story missions, add ons, all +2s and all those fancy drops you want, trials, maze/nyzul/log watch - I am probably not even naming everything either.
Finding your self just wanting the new stuff to look at and and spend 5 minutes playing it then want SE to release something else? SE has already released some stuff since Abyssea - telling me you have done it all?
It sounds like your just ranting/moaning about the state of your Linkshell by comparing what it used to be when people had to join 24+ people Shells. And again the fact you are on your 2nd post pretty much not happy with what exactly? I actually dont understand what you are complaining about when it comes to the game - other than Linkshells/social stuff.
Shells shrink because too many people want to own their own like it always has been and now they join shells with people they know instead of joining shells that have large amount of people and only know about two of them.
Game is dying - well the fact that SE isnt doing another server merge at the moment, numbers still good on the game, I still see tons of people when I go do stuffs. Maybe its YOU that is oblivious to the fact the game IS still alive, people ARE still playing, and SE has YET to even announce another merger and the FACT is people EVERY YEAR say the game is dying since I can remember.
