Ok, S-E I was frustrated before and on the edge of my subscription, but with this new patch you did SOMETHING horribly wrong.
I was getting a few elemental instabilities before... but now EVERY G.D. synth! What the hell are you guys on?! Do you really think this crap is fun?! I'm tired of this failing crap, I'm tired of these stupidly strong instabilities. I'm tired of all this hush-hush mysticism bull crap that my crafting prowess should be affected by the moon, the stars, direction I faced, what side of the bed I got up on in the morning, what color underwear I am wearing or who my god damned favorite cartoon character is.
I play games to have fun. Is this a foreign concept to you? You can't honestly believe things like this are fun, CAN you?! Seriously?! This has gone beyond frustration. Now I am just purely pissed off. This is completely unacceptable and with no word of the next future update in 2011, it could be next Christmas for all we know, and no word on any possible relief for crafting, I have had enough. If this crap is NOT fixed in the next version update, not only have you lost as FFXIV player, but you have lost a customer who has faithfully purchased every Square-Enix RPG since Final Fantasy 1. I will not tolerate this crap from you any longer.
Is it too much to ask that I can sit down whenever the hell I feel like it in my level appropriate crafting armor, equipped with my level appropriate crafting tool and do a level appropriate synthesis or guildleve and have areasonable expectation that I will be able to finish the guildleve or synthesis? I'm not asking to be able to get to 100 quality here. 100 progress will make me happy. Before this last patch, I maybe failed maybe 3 out of every 20 synthesis for cotton cloth. I log in to do some grinding and that changed to succeeding 5 of 20 synths. I'm not asking for automatic synthesis where I can walk away from the computer while everything happens automatically. I'm not asking that I even succeed with an item every single time for my level (though I should expect that for something well below and I feel that unless I am spamming bold or rapid synthesis I should be able to reasonably expect that). But I am asking that when I sit down to craft something at my level, below my level, or within a crafting guildleve designed for my rank's level range that I don't feel the urge to bang my head against the wall, rip my computer desk apart or throw my chair across the room. Really, am I asking too much here? Is this request just too unreasonable? I know I am not the only one out there who has had this problem. Maybe I am having it more than others, but still it does happen to people. Does it really have to?
