If your reaction is negative, you are blowing it out of proportion. There is still going to be plenty of leveling. Look at all the classes and jobs. I think what he was trying to convey is that an offline FF fan could progress through the 90% main story just as they do in offline titles. He is only stating things as of now up until the level cap.
Huge Point not said: He doesn't state if this is the way the main story or progression will be after the level cap raise or expansions.
Keep my bolded statement in mind before all the negative comments come. Also there will not be 100% unique class story because this game doesn't follow the alt formula. FFXI didn't have a 100% unique story per job through the whole leveling process either, so do not try and hold ARR to some devilish standard. ARR will probably end up having more classes/jobs than Xi in the end if it stays around.
