People is dumb.
The same thing happened in alpha testing when they'd add a new wave and also just before they opened up beta testing. There was a large part of the small alpha community who would point out the date they were added to testing as if being there before someone else gave you some sort of weight to sling around and made your opinion more important. It's fine how it is, the devs don't need your help and who are you to think you can come in here changing things.. ect ect.
If SE is going to revive XIV then new and returning players bring the forums a new perspective that they could benefit from. At least that is, until said players realize that their feedback falls on deaf eyes and is reduced to fanboy flamebait.
