The money people and developers are completely separate entities. Any good development team will fight on the money people on excessive things, but ultimately they have little control.

Blame SE, not the development team. They are doing the best they can.

also people mad that they're using the cash shop to sell vanity items are silly billies.

companies are here to take your money. that's the reality. do you know how many times ff4 was rereleased? lol?

absolutely not. it's all garbage and will further encourage selling data instead of simply adding it to the game. whaling is a disease upon the economy.

just because you're unwilling to pay more doesn't mean there shouldn't be stuff for those who are.

as long as these things don't confer any sort of in-game advantage - at all - i do not see any issue. thinking in terms of 'this cost me a raid!' or 'we get one fewer dungeon these days :(' is substituting quantity for quality. i thought this expansion was pretty alright. i don't feel like the cash shop hurt it at all.

as to whether or not i think se's practices with the cash shop are entirely ethical - nope. i think selling space for real money is made slightly evil when you can't disable auto-loot and npcs spit items at you.

It's all cosmetic too, so welcome to subjectivity

The most disappointing issue with mounts:

We dont have an end game zone to use them to "show off" them. They are both city states. Id love to purchase the spriggan one but there is literally no reason to be in fighting/world zones unless you hunt (occasionally gather).

I'll ask the question directly then since you didn't actually respond to that point. Do you think the fact that people are having fun with the repurposed content is a bad thing? Are they wrong for having fun with it? Are they wrong for enjoying it?
So much fun that it's mostly bot.

Plenty of things there add in-game advantages:

Level skipping (Skip levelling and get a chara max level, don't have to buy equip while you level, etc) Also I think it gives 500k in girl too
Story skip
Max level retainers, don't have to level them, get equip for it, bring high valued items faster
Cloud mount which moves faster
Ceremony of eternal bonding, which gives a mount that moves faster
Double seats mount, which you can use to have people skip currents

just because you're unwilling to pay more doesn't mean there shouldn't be stuff for those who are.
It's about this content taht everyone knows would be in the game being sold in the cash shop.

Not really, given that most of it is made by a team who doesn't work with the game directly. The people making outfits and mounts for Mogstation don't work in any of the outfits and mounts released in the game.

Also getting to cap faster and skipping currents doesn't allow you to clear endgame content any better or faster.

You can't get to max level with a skip

Story skip

Can't skip current content

Max level retainers, don't have to level them, get equip for it, bring high valued items faster

Which does what?

Cloud mount which moves faster

And? Flying is fastest speed in the game and 1 star is easy to get

Ceremony of eternal bonding, which gives a mount that moves faster

See above

Double seats mount, which you can use to have people skip currents

Irrelevant since you can't fly without MSQ quests anyway
