New content? You cannot haz!

Is it just me or is just about everyone desperate for some real content right now? We’re all waiting on this famous update, yet the date hasn’t yet been announced.  Meanwhile we’ve had no real update notices for a bit and yet we’re supposed to be happy with discussing jug pets, a caption competition and a soundtrack.

Seriously SE?

I want new events, new equipment and a bloody date for the update.  I am BORED! Voidwatch is keeping us occupied for now in game but Abyssea whilst constructive is repetitive and we’re getting to the point where we’re seeing a lot of our regular members capping out on key gear. We have no plans to stop yet but I can see us gradually moving away from Abyssea.

The fact is, there’s a lot of noise from SE but no real content.  The test server is a nice bonus but  once you’ve played on it a couple of times, tried out the JA and new spells you’re ready to move on. Perhaps I’m not dedicated enough but I want real progress…

What are we getting this time?

  • Level cap to 95

New spells, new job abilities and more magian trials

  • Changes to CoP Dynamis

Once you have your hydra hauberk, your Tav win and your accessories (which are predominantly superceded by Abyssean equipment) you probably won’t go back.

  • More Walk of Echoes (and loot changes)

It’s fun occasionally… but ‘meh’

  • More Voidwatch

Change the loot distribution and my opinion of this will improve.  I like the fights, they make a pleasant change but once you’ve done them, the idea of spamming them over and over for ‘meh’ gear is not pleasant.

  • Some new battlefields for Kindred and High Kindred crests – dull, dull, dull, dull, dull.

The problem is, once  we get to 95… what do we do with it? Voidwatch will only last so long (especially if they don’t improve the loot distribution)

Unless they announce something really NEW, they’re going to lose people.  New downloadable expansion scenario would do but honestly we need new zones….

Drop f***ing PS2 already.

Maybe they have renewed interest in XIV and are hoping to shift us wholesale to that. Or maybe I’m tired and cynical today and have just had enough.

    Drop PS2, recode game engine.
    Watch as everyone cries over loss of Windower and the population plummets as everyone leaves due to lack of spellcast.
    ???
    Profit?
