FF14 beta phase 3

This is the place for Chillin', kicking back and relaxing. Talk about Final Fantasy. Don't make the Toppu Neko mad.

Kos, in response to your concerns

1), 2), 3) It used to be that there were at least 5 posts a day made in sections that I couldn't see. This has since died down. But that's where my feeling excluded came from.

4) This was, in fact, a misunderstanding. We both took it the wrong way and for that I'm sorry.

5) Same as above, sorry for getting it wrong.

Now, to go into the deeper part explaining my combative attitude. Let me start by saying that I solve conflict through butting heads, firm believer of speaking one's mind here.

About never having a crossed word... remember Neoseeker? Remember "Gee, thanks Lemming, I figured it would not take long for some moron to start pointing fingers."
Remember how that was a misunderstanding that I shortly thereafter came to your guild to apologize for in person? You did apologize and that was great. But you did call me a moron.

And the other thing I was frustrated about, which I am fully aware is a personal issue and is in no way relevant but was key in my outburst: You drummed up business for this forum lots of places. I joined because I really thought this would be the place to be for a community of wkc2 to live on.
For a while there, you disappeared. No posts at all for well over a month. That kinda thing just rubs me the wrong way after all the pep talk.
Maybe it just reminded me of how our original Lollie leader ended up dropping us and we had to raise the new Lollie's from the ashes of the old... I don't know. Either way it bugged me.

"Good lord, what's that saying about no good deed ever goes unpunished?"

Honest suggestion, no snark intended. If you'd rather not get criticized I can leave right now. I had my reasons for being miffed and I've shared them with you. I'd rather not leave this board (and I'd sure as hell rather not miss playing with the Nekos on ff14), but if it would help you I'll do it.

to Colette - no problem :)

I think it is inexperience that is causing a misunderstanding where everyone is trying to accommodate all.

Cookies for everyone! :kawaii:

to Lem - from your manner of speech, I am guessing you are British. ;) Maybe not, but that would be my guess and would explain a lot. :thumb:

Yes, personal issues took precedence over lots.

I believe in speaking my mind as well, as you know. Yes, we did have a major misunderstanding on Neoseeker, and I did apologize, and I was sincere. One thing I believe in other than speaking my mind is putting my hand up and admitting when I get/do something wrong. That's why I went back to Neoseeker to apologize.

My absence from the forum is/was entirely my own fault and doing. In a nutshell, I got burned out in WKC, burned out at work - at the same time as work got both extremely busy and very uncertain (layoffs), and to top off the cake my wife's back which has undergone several fusion surgeries turns out not to have healed properly from the first fusion. To be perfectly frank the entire thing really got on top of me and I stopped posting here, Facebook and several other places where I was a daily regular contributor. It took a while for me to get back to being myself again. I can only apologize for the time I was away, I could have done better at communicating with everyone, clearly I did not.

Lem, speaking my mind again, I really don't want you or anyone else to leave. I don't have a problem with criticism, or sarcasm, as you said, there was clearly a mis-understanding. I don't want you or Colette or anyone else to leave the forum. FFXIV:ARR appears to have a long future ahead of it, and I want to get off to as good a start as we can. We did have a nice community on WKC - it went beyond single guilds, and we all share the loss of WKC. I want to step forward with all of you into FFXIV:ARR.

We've kind of cleared the air in this topic Lem, so how about this; WKC is over, as much as we all loved it (demonstrated by the playing hours) it's gone, and we must move on. Final Fantasy XIV is the future, it's a new beginning. So let's let whatever has happened in the past end with WKC, now; and move forward into the new beginning together. Of course we will all wish to retain our identity forged over months in WKC. Unlike WKC, FFXIV appears to promote cooperation between Free Companies, so we can all work together whenever we want or need to.

So, all of that said, who's online this weekend in FFXIV Beta phase 3?

I'll play as much as I can. Wish they has it open Saturday and Sunday, though. Friday I work and Saturday I'm usually busy for part of the day~

Counting the hours....lol, Hina and I will play as much as possible, but we are also attending a local Anime convention Friday/Saturday, so our daytime playtime will be reduced a bit. However, we'll be there as long as our bodies and minds hold out overnight...

Really enjoyed the weekend. I played mostly solo or with Will. A bit with Paz and Kos.

Kos was sick for quite a bit of the weekend, so we didn't go to the anime con (that and the fact that my back is in a brace again). So I was off trying to level and do some story quests. I made it to lvl 17 and unlocked guildhests and leves.

I haven't got to do any guildhests yet and didn't see much of other folks in the LS. I did lots of exploring and got quite a bit of the map unlocked. Still trying to get to Limsa. Began some crafting and made a couple of things.

Maybe more next weekend.

Understandable. I find myself unfairly comparing the two games already. Especially visually. I know FF is still just beta, but WKC was done so much better (IMHO) in a lot of areas. I think it will improve. I like the play, but it isn't the same.

But we have to move with the times.

Did you download the FF14 trailer displayed in E3 from the PSN ? It seems doing so gives you an chance to get a code for the beta.
Anyway, go DL that quickly, the servers open tomorrow ;)

I streamed the vid but never downloaded it. Anyway, I will have the download in motion when I go to bed this evening, and will jump in after I get home from work tomorrow.
