A new level of cringeworthy for the forums
Yes people, it’s that time again, time to bitch about the latest idiocy from that wonderful place that we call hell, er the FF4 forums. ;p
And what has gotten the Rabid Forum Fans in an uproar THIS time? Something REALLY stupid, I mean seriously, REALLY stupid.
Ok, get this, there are people who are NOT happy about the whole Eden 8 Shiva thing. And what thing is this? Well dearies, they are appalled, APPALLED that SE decided to depict our dear innocent Ryne in SUCH a lewd way by putting her cute, young head on a smoking hot shapely, scantly clad adult body.
Yes people, I am NOT making this up, people are ACTUALLY bitching and complaining about this on the forums; and all I can say is W-T-F? I mean seriously, WTF? Really, of ALL the things to get offended over, they pick……this? I mean….why?
This is something that is just a SHORT representation of Ryne’s imagining of Shiva that happens for ONE fight and then it is over, it is gone for good. It is NOT a permanent thing. Ryne has NOT been transformed into this hot oversexualized teenager forever. Honestly, I am VERY surprised people noticed it much. The whole thing is so quick, only a few minutes, then you fight her and then it is all over with and she is back to sweet little Ryne. (Yes, I DO like Ryne, quite a bit actually Not THAT way people! ;p)
It is all just SOOOOOO silly and STUPID and these people who are bitching about it deserve the ridicule they are getting from others. It’s just such a DUMB thing to be in a uproar about.
And if I MAY say, ‘pot calling the kettle black’. Ok, I know very well that many of these people who are bitching about this are probably anime fans. This means that they SEE the sexualization and objectifying of teenage girls ALL the time in the anime they watch, not to mention the manga they read. Do they bitch about this stuff there too? Probably not, I am willing to bet they let all that crap slide more often then not because that is the way it is on the majority of those shows.
So then WHY bitch about such a minor thing such as this in a game which is pretty much almost an animeish MMO? WHO the HELL KNOWS!!!!!!!!! Like I said, STUPID!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously. Save the bitching for stuff that REALLY matters like screwing up healing jobs. Being outraged for such a minor thing like this is being stupid for stupid’s sake. There was NOTHING wrong with it. Ryne was not changed permanently, and anyway. How do we know how old she REALLY is anyway, it is never mentioned anywhere. I would assume if she is Minfilia reborn, she would eventually grow to look like Minfilia but we don’t really know that. Sometimes women just look, well….young for a lot of their life.
Anyway, I am done with my ranting on the subject. Whether you agree with me or them does not really matter. Like I said, they REALLY need to find better things in the game to bitch about. ;p
I can only recommended you skip the forums if you want to avoid one source of dubiousity and unneeded frustation regarding FFXIV.
Last time I visited the forums was 2 months after i started playing (Dec' 2017)... and I'll tell you, it was what can only be labelled as 'real waste of time'.
From my view, people there are stubborn, also mean at times, have deaf ears and seem to view the forums as a pool to vent the whole frustation of their life into.
I was active there for 3 days. 3!
I am usually a very patient person (provided depression doesn't kick in too hard). Yet in these 3 days my mental energy stock went poof quickly, trying to explain people what wrong things happen in the corner of this game we should love and enjoy.
In short, I hate to judge yet concluding from their reactions and responses, I was left with no options.
I only remember a horde of raging, salted bulls in the forums, whining about X job actions and X sidequest content/story. They're extremely bored?
But but Raifur, they're like a train wreck, you just CAN"T look away at times! LOL
Honestly, I really don't go there TOO often, mainly to see what people are saying about new stuff or if I am bored at work.
It is a bad, BAD place though! ;-)
Serena, I have not see the one on opting out yet, I'll have to look. My opinion on it, 8 and 24 man it's ok to do it since you wont be missed too much and it will usually fill again quick, but dungeons are bad unless you are dps, then it will fill quick.
Some people seek anything they can in order to complain and be outraged. This is not only a topic on forums but from streamers of all people as well. She’s been turned to a woman for shiva and shiva is lucky to be wearing Any clothes to begin with considering past installments. So maybe they should stop being big babies over it before we get a siren VIII remastered edit
But that is what they want. “She’s 16 how dare you!” Get over yourself. I bet you wore less at that age.
Also, no one seems to be mad over Garudas wings covering her goods, nor the fact that her and ifrit combined to make a man. How hypocritical.
I thought it was really sweet to see Shiva Summon Midsgramor, they were lovers in Heavensward right?
I just started getting into the whole blogging thing but one look over fence and I'm unsure if I ever want to go there lol. Maybe for a laugh at forum antics? I get off on that sort of thing.
Wow, sooooo many responses. LOL. I have to say I am surprised. ;p
I tried to find the exclude dungeons post, but did not see it. That is pretty sucky though suggesting that.
LOL Esper, IKR? What teens wear nowadays, especially at cons. Holier then thou aren't we forum posters? ;-)
You are probably right Lancit, I don't remember too well.
Oh BELIEVE me Alerica, LOTS to laugh at there. If you want to be amused by the sheer nonsense people sprout sometimes, go and amuse yourself. ;p
Should have seen this coming. Ryne is such a special snowflake.
Yeah, we all know how much you like Ryne Ronove! 😋
My dislike is impartial.
The forum is probably the worst place related to XIV in the world!
Annabel why are you doing that to yourself?
I don't KNOW Yoru!!!!
Oh God, HELP me, I have a problem! (cries)
They are a horrible, horrible addiction! ;p
People, DON'T be like me, stay AWAY from them!!!!!
Seriously, looking at those forums, one would think there is a million things wrong with the game and it will eventually implode because of its Extreme suckiness. LOL
Every little problem in the game is magnified 100 fold on the forums by people REALLY bitching about it.
See, even Yoru shares my intense disregard towards the forums, to the point where we just deny its existence xD
About the Ryne-Shiva thing.... LOLOLOLOLOLOL11oneeleven!!!
Over the years, I lost count reading how many times people crave and want 'animu waifus with big booty and large B's' in their vicinity and dress characters close-to-how-Hydaelyn-created-them.
But by the next day, they go all prudish and rage about how revealing other characters are.
visible VISIBLE confusion :P
