Really?!?!? You know I started playing this game way back in 2003. I quit in 2009! hint hint hint! One of the reasons was unwilling to camp these HNMs due to the most coldest ingame violence ever. These HNMs have enraged players for sooooooooooooo long. I don't understand why it took so long to make these HNMs trigger spawns. I mean wtf guys, I use to be in a endgame Linkshell that refused to be part of the HNM war with other LSes because it would get out of hand. I can't believe after 9 years this issue is being taken serious and resolved to make it more enjoyable. Bout damn time! But way too late for me, I've pretty much quit playing FFXI a few years after playing it for 6 years.....

I went to WOW for a few years but now it seems the DEV there are idiots and turned the game into this steroid freakshow.

I was a beta tester for FFXIV and was excited until 3 days of gameplay. It lacked Game Content and was dull as poo. Then when it Live and I had a bad feeling that it was far from being ready. It lacked so much gaming content, it wasn't even funny....Epicfail

Dev2: hey I know, lets "give them what they wanted" again, it'll be hilarious when they start arguing on the forums and accusing each other of wanting a button in their mog house to instant pop the NMs or have an npc that just hands out black belts.

Dev1: ...Announce it, I'll make popcorn!
Now lets all attack anyone that doesn't jump for joy and call them lazy etc etc.
