Who cares when it was fixed? It was fixed in a relatively timely manner.

Japanese company builds things in japanese then translates to other languages, can you believe it?!? Only people who say “speak American” when they hear a foreign language in the USA would make a big deal out of this.

SE dropping news on the RSS feed early when the accompanying link isnt made yet is a bigger thing to complain about, and its still very minor. Its actually funny when that happens.

What...?

They just announced:
Besieged level 99
RoE for Sortie
Gamepad mapping for targeting nearest enemy
Dynamis timer adjustments for flexibility
Race change
Vanabout will auto-set and not count towards the 30 RoE cap

To be fair, all of this stuff required almost no development effort and has truly minimal impact. It was a little surprising to see in maintenance mode, but for all the things you listed:

Besieged bumping up mob stats is literally only to make the event take a little longer because Japanese players complained they couldn't get their RoE for their one measly silver voucher. Great, now it's MORE of a time-sink (x2) each month to get your 1/6 of a chance to get Ka-Thwacked, or get a Loud Thud and a Voidtorso: BST.

RoE for Sortie looks incredibly lame and they shouldn't have even bothered. A one-time NQ Old Case? Really?

Gamepad mapping is nothing more than assigning F8 to a controller button. (that being said, being able to configure controllers without having to shut down FFXI/POL and use a different configuration app is helpful)

Dyna timer is cool I guess. But only done because nobody bothers doing Dyna these days (my group won't go any more outside of Statue Crusher campaign).

Race change is mildly interesting, but not going to affect me because I chose right the first time.

Vanabout... we shall see.

I'm sorry, it is actually really quite a major development task to allow players to bind F8 to a controller. And they probably needed TWO interns to add a new Sortie RoE to the game. Maybe THREE interns to copy/paste some new mob stats to Besieged mobs.

I'm happy to see a smattering of minor new stuff too, but come on...

Funny enough, tying these rewards to fishing might be a blessing given fishing bots are still a thing lmao.

The bots will do the work for us real ppl.

I wonder if they are going to fix the bug where people were unable to even collect their reward for participating.

It wasn't a bug. User error. Reward was only collectable after certain date/time.

Not that anyone reads anything.

They couldn't make Fencer+4 work on Empy+3 legs, so they had to make it Fencer+3 and 100 TP Bonus. Don't underestimate spaghetti code.

what was the date/time then? because the personal rewards was collectable at any point until the moogle disappeared, but the server reward was supposed to be collectable after the event was over and before the moogle went away. it was roughly 2 weeks if I recall correctly, and every day I checked and no reward could be obtained.

What server reward are you referring to? There were 3 rewards, Bronze, Silver, and Gold. I got rewards from all 3 tiers after the redemption period opened. The only "server reward" was extended campaigns, which aren't handed out by a moogle.

There was an additional ending bonus of 10k mexp or something.

The end reward wasn't available until.... The end. Even though it appeared as though it was available as soon as it was earned.

It'll be exactly the same this time.

yes, that one, that I didn't try to even get until after the campaign ended, knowing that it was a post campaign reward. Then in the 2 weeks that followed, I still couldn't receive it even though I ended with personal of 1460 points. an error message kept popping up when I tried to collect it, and I tried daily till the moogle was gone. how exactly is that "user error"?

When I said "server reward" I was referring to the fact that everyone on the server who participated got the reward once the campaign was complete.

Ah I see. I think I remember some glitch in the menu where after you had already claimed the CP for your plaudits (1k per plaudit or w/e it was) it still looked like it was claimable, but you couldn't claim it a second time. This was a little while ago though so I could be mis-remembering the details.

No, you are correct, this was a bug. It would tell you that you claimed the reward and you could do it repeatedly, but it never actually gave it to you. This happened before you could actually legit claim it at the end, as well, it just kept presenting the option to obtain it and telling you it was granted, but it never was.

Because it wasn't actually available to be taken yet

I guess that counts as a display bug in fairness. It shouldn't have existed until it was able to be obtained.

Let's go Stans. Move them *** and get me 6 months of Cornyface.

Failure will not be tolerated. I don't care how bad the rewards are.

It's lightning damage. Also wish they didn't make Incursion a daily objective.

How do you even access the ROE objectives? When I go to Quests, I see Vana'Bout but it's greyed out. When I go to Objective List, I don't see anything about Vana'Bout or Special Events. Do you have to talk to an NPC to gain access to it or anything? Wiki doesn't mention anything.

I just checked all of my mules, including a few that are level 20ish and have done nothing but crafting...they can all access the Vana'bout menu. My main character cannot.
