    While entertaining, it’s a year+ old bit anymore. And if you all are seriously slamming this game when there’s SO much good in it too.. well idk. If I say quit, you slam back. So instead of quitting, I’d say to log in and…drink it in. Eorzea is a great place. Search in your hearts, you know it to be true. This NWO/Howard Stern style of show draws the ratings sure but just please calm the hell down. It’s just not that bad

    Listened to it live and it was a great show

    Can you tell me something you’re actually looking forward to in 4.1? I still play this game every day, and even I’m really disappointed at that trailer. -Nika

    I’m with Nika on this one and she’s the only one in the show I can relate with in terms on how much we play (currently on Exdeath). I haven’t capped tomes in weeks and I only log to raid. 4.1 didn’t hook me at all. Of course I’ll check it out but after a week or 2 I’ll eventually tune out. Overall SB has been disappointing

    -The extra roulette will be cool
    -I’m ready to loldie in Bahamut
    -Shinryu will be epic and fun to farm for doggo
    -speaking of puppers, first two be buyable with 99 totems. More farms!
    -MSQ is always good to have
    -new beast tribe = new mount + easy exp for lvling an off class from 60-70
    -new housing, that’s 720 new plots plus 24 apt buildings. Homeless rate will go down :)
    -excited to see the facelift that Govlet, Beds, and Mist gets and I believe such changes will increase ppl wanting to live there
    -more recipes, more crafting, more Gil. If you hate crafting, you’re allergic to money :^)

    Ty for patience, had to txt that between calls. Call center job

  7. Paul Vlosich Oct 3, 2017

    And oh yeah the job adjustments rock the house

    Paul pretty much hit it, plus the new 24 man.

    I don’t get this as a bit/model/SOP. You clearly want FFXIV players to listen, but have done nothing but complain for well over a year. Most of the hosts barely play or play at such a casual level that I wouldn’t trust a steam review from someone with so few hours logged on ANY title, much less an MMO.

    Nika raids, you guys all complain non-stop about the lack of challenge, so ultimate is doing 30K auto attacks and OPENS with simultaneous twister + conflagration and you STILL poo-poo it?

    The bit is shallow, but at this point I’m not even sure you guys know what you want other than “XI or WoW,” given that you’ve said as much 500 times.

    Find a new schtick. This one got old six months ago. I used to listen religiously but I tuned out in July when I realized that even when there was new content to talk about, it was still just COMPLAINED about and not actually examined, discussed, or broken down to any degree.

    You used to do that all the time, but then it went by the wayside for the new “shit on it 24/7” model that really kicked into high gear over last winter or so. If you think FFXIV is that bad and broken, then reformat the show or dump it entirely and focus on your other two. All the production values in the world can’t cover forever if the baseline is just bitching.

    What I don’t understand is why censoring criticism is something we should opt for in a situation like this? I would never consider our criticism a “bit.” It’s our honest to god opinion of how we feel. Obviously not all players feel this way, but many do. I see it from a TON of people in the raid scene, and spread amongst multiple social media sources as well. People are tired of the same. They want variety . People keep paying, hoping that they’ll shake it up by the next patch, but it never happens. We hold out because we love this game, we love FF, and we love SE. We want this game to succeed .
    So the best we can do to let SE know what we want is to talk about it. We weren’t even bitching on this last episode. Listen when we breakdown the trailer. There are brief moments of excitement that come through. But it’s hard to keep that excitement going when all of this content is been there, done that. Variety. Variety. Variety . That’s what we need. I’ve got the current raid content on Tuesday thursday…now I need end game content for mon/wed/Fri. This is the only mmo I know that’s like “don’t like this particular type of end game? Too bad there’s nothing else for you to choose from.”
    So how would quitting, censoring/changing our content , or anything similar, actually help in this situation? Spoiler , it wouldnt. -Nika

    I dont want this game to turn into xi. Lord knows I shit on that game enough. But there’s something to be said when in xi I used to say “oh just wait, the game is just getting started at max level.” In xiv I say “enjoy leveling while you can because these dungeons are most of the content and the only thing that’s going to keep you playing is…leveling more jobs.” Don’t u see the issue here?
    I didn’t love most of the content in xi, but a lot of it WAS fun. And it was ALL varied. Wanted to go hardcore? Camp ground kings. Not your cup of tea but you like NM hunting? Try sky, sea, znms. Prefer gauntlet style horde mobs? Give dynamis, limbus, einherjar a go. Rather have something a little more casual but still worthwhile reward? Try salvage, assault, or nyzul isle.
    I had something DIFFERENT to do in that game every. Single. Day. XIV has improved so much from what Xi did wrong, so I don’t understand why they aren’t keeping the aspects of what xi did RIGHT. -Nika

    Before Aniero rips off my face, I’ll continue to listen. I do like you guys a ton! And you DO raise many concerns that are legitimate about how the game is going along. The little potshots tho (usually quipped by Kallo) get unfair after awhile.

    Nika you’re my fave because you’re a raider like myself and have the most rationale in your criticisms. I’ll give ya something I was given as I learned to tank Neo while also dealing with anxiety disorder LOL – “if you think negative, the negative will happen more often.” After hearing that I made an effort to calm the hell down and omg the Clear happened! Who knew??? Haha. Please be more positive and I betcha less ppl will think y’all are bitchin

    The problem with Eureka is even if it is amazing content and something that brings in something fresh to the game, it won’t last and it won’t be enough. The game is too far gone for a single piece of content to save it. It will come out, it will be amazing for a month, then everyone will get what they need from it, then only a few people will keep playing it so new players or latecomers will be unable to enjoy it as intended. Or it will be so amazing and with nothing else to do in the game, we will burn ourselves out on it. Cases in point, diadem, deep dungeon.

    This rampant tone policing by people who can’t put on their big people pants and listen to something that might be uncomfortable to hear, is downright annoying. I tire easily of the “arguments” above, which do absolutely nothing to address the concerns of the LBR hosts, and many of their audience whom have called in or chatted on stream, about their misgivings. Arguments by anecdotes, last I checked, are as much a logical fallacy today as they were yesterday. There are many people dissatisfied with this game. Don’t try to erase that with your bullshit anecdote of a smile on your face.

    You are not required to be or sound positive to engage in criticism. Criticism does not demand you now become an ambassador of the subject matter criticized. If you demand civility and a constantly positive or neutral tone in your criticism, you are doing it wrong, and I am ultimately uninterested in what you have to say. The content LBR has been putting out this last year or so (HW lull to now) interests me far more than sunshine up the ass praise (There are plenty of 14 podcasts that will do that for you, if you like…. if you can get past the shit audio issues, or egos, or sometimes both!).

    A new coat of paint on the same busted car is still the same busted car. Time to fix the car, or build a new car.

    So, tl;dr; to people casually saying “BE MORE POOOOSITIVE”, I say “BE MORE VOCAL”. The latter achieves more for the world than your Xanax-infused positive fever dream.

    Benjamin Jarvela obvious concern troll is full of shit. The attention whoring required to declare your intent to unsub because one person hurt your delicate ego by calling you out is massive.

  17. John Stewart Oct 3, 2017

    We are now trained to consume the content while it lasts, because it won’t last. That does not make a game worth a year round sub.

  18. John Stewart Oct 3, 2017

    I’m not white knighting LBR. I have plenty of objections to some of the shit they do. What I have a greater objection to is your vacuous argumentative style in concert with your childish insults. I never used the words “100% of the time”, either. I’m not going to tolerate you lying about me on this thread.

  20. John Stewart Oct 3, 2017

    Idgaf what you said to anyone else. I only give a fuck that your argument makes no sense, and all you can seem to do when I call you out on it is repeat the same style of insult. Grab a mirror.

  21. John Stewart Oct 3, 2017

    However… sure, I’ll humor your bullshit. I have, so far.

    “I don’t get this as a bit/model/SOP.” – degrading the perspective of people who repeatedly tell you this is their genuine thought process by calling it a bit, showing a basic lack of listening comprehension.

    “The bit is shallow” even if you disagree with above, you then explicitly insult whatever it is by insinuating it lacks any kind of depth. You may disagree, but data point upon data point has been given on air.

    “Find a new schtick. This one got old six months ago. I used to listen religiously but I tuned out in July when I realized that even when there was new content to talk about, it was still just COMPLAINED about and not actually examined, discussed, or broken down to any degree.” – COMPLAINED, in call caps, to provide emphasis of dismissal of what you heard, because the tone was a complaint.

    “All the production values in the world can’t cover forever if the baseline is just bitching.” – another reductive whinge.

  22. Limit Break Radio Oct 3, 2017

    I can promise you, regardless of how “exaggerated” our characters may be at times… Our opinions about this patch and motivation for the game that we express on air is 100% genuine. Sad to see you go Benjamin, but why are you still here arguing? 😛 Just walk away with your unsub and you won’t have to deal with any of my “White Knights” anymore <3

    Jesus Christ Ben, way to make yourself look like a smarmy ass clown. Ugh. I really dont want to even weigh in on this because it wastes my fucking time. So, instead of streaming – I’m typing this shit out.

    What. Do. You. Want?

    What -exactly- do you want from LBR? You dont like that we “complain” so what would you have us do? For someone who claims to have 2 decades in broadcasting you should be able to put very succinctly what you want to hear from a show like LBR when you tune in.

    As for your small novel – you can either call in to the show and we can talk about this or you can sit here with the knowledge that I got exactly 6 words in and said “fuck this, I dont have all week to read this shit” and moved the fuck on. Nobody want’s to read your Moby Dick of Podcasting. I’ll address you criticism but not here. This is a waste of my fucking time. – Aniero
