Yeah Eureka was a waste of time and resources. Only one person in my FC did it, and not because he liked it.

They made a purpose for FATE grinding... That's cool right?

(Minions, songs, etc.)


I don’t think many people including me care enough about the minion and songs to grind fates. After they get them, there is no reason to continue. Fates should reward tomes and gear drops as an alternative to dungeons. How about adding some super rare mount drops too? That would get people out in the zones to make it feel like a real MMO.


Please don't ever get into game development, or reach out to SE for suggestions.

Just wondering if I should come back or not since I also pretty much missed most of last expansion


Did you honestly expect things to be any different? It's the same as when you left, just a old skin with a new coat of paint. Each expansion is a rinse and repeat in of itself, literally. Only newness so far was a "better" MSQ but even then the MSQ wasn't the kind of story I wanted it to be nor what I expected it to be based on the trailers. Without spoilers it's good but not great. Hyped up but poor. Zones are pretty and music is better. Endgame still sucks ass. And I expect 5.1-5.55 to not be anything eye opening either.

I hope I'm wrong on that, but this game has taught me to not get my hopes up to high. Yoshi-P has a way of dashing them very easily.

/2 cents


Microscopic minority opinion.

Your 2nd link proves my overall point, that like any content, some will whine and complain and others will embrace it. Also look at those survey results

you mean the first being the majority either hating it or not liking it, and the second one not exactly being the most positive thing, either?

look at the negative results and how high they are. major content should be hated by that many people? i imagine you'd look at a 51/49 result with the 51 being positive and thinking that's a good thing. sure it may be the majority, but barely.

in summary, eureka was garbage. there are articles and endless threads out there from people who have played it and detested it, and for good reason. it was horrible.

personally, i didn't bother going past anemos.

You act like relic has never been polarizing...

Also the negative reception in the poll was 30% which is not even close to a majority

no, it's not. but it is higher than someone, as a dev, should want it to be. that's still a large chunk that dislikes or straight-up abhors the content. now, as far as feedback goes - yes. it is overwhelmingly the majority that hated eureka. i've only seen very few positive comments about it, from people who are blind to ffxi and think it's great.
