Ep89 WTF in Vanadiel Is the Average Player?

August 8, 2022

This week cirrhosis causes us to lose our last eight teeth while we choke on ashes of the toothless experience that is a dual failed divergence wave two for a few hours no one will get back.

We go to a darker place at various time in this episode, and ultimately it shows how things end up alright. While it was worrying for a bit if we could take a step back form that ledge. Ultimately, everything calms and we were left with the fact that empowering yourself with the knowledge of the world around you is the only way to sail such rough seas.  So rise up and stop the tide from washing you away to a miserable experience.

Ep85 WTF in Vanadiel Is Respecting The Listeners Time?

Ep85 WTF in Vanadiel Is Respecting The Listeners Time?

June 27, 2022

I tell yah what, the listener can't get no respect. Story of their life. They listen to this looking for some direction. Meanwhile, all we can offer is the metaphorical equivalent of taking Viagra and prune juice. They won't know if they are coming or going.

Immediately after the end of the podcast Fox and I mutually agreed in that instant to end the trend of focusing about the decay of XI society. It just takes the energy out of the conversation, and there is no proper resolution. Perhaps we can only be the change we wish to see in this regard.

Ep82 WTF in Vanadiel Is Frustration?

Ep82 WTF in Vanadiel Is Frustration?

June 5, 2022

Snootchie bootchies. This week we discuss the frustrations and associated attitudes in the community for entirely too long.

As an aside, for the end part of the episode. I forgot to put the exclamation point on the fact of how these silly METAttitudes are, and how they negatively impact others. By including a message we received from a listener. Who rightfully wanted to go as DNC to a V15 Xevioso, but their group determined they much rather take a WAR because its a WAR.

Ep81 WTF in Vanadiel Is a DNC?

May 22, 2022

Step by step baby, gonna get Dancer into your wo~orld. This episode was disgustingly long. Forget respecting the listener's time, what about our time? Such is the price to give a very comprehensive testimony on Dancer.

This week we do a little dance, and give Dancer a little love as we get down tonight. Get down to night. Dancer is one of the greatest jobs that gets denied the proper consideration by the community that it should.

It may be the 20th anniversary for FFXI, but by chance we recorded this on the 24th anniversary of the ending of Seinfeld. What's up with that?

We are joined by Aniero of Limit Break Radio again as we wake him up and go on a journey. If you were someone who was upset by the anniversary then this is not the podcast for you.

Ep77 WTF in Vana’diel are Anniversary Expectations?

April 24, 2022

Gilbert Gottfried is as dead as what your 20th anniversary expectations should be. Everyone is getting themselves psyched up for something arbitrary. So if you enjoy the game play it, and it is that simple. That or well, you could always tell everyone how to get. How to get to "*** Street"

Ep76 WTF in Vanadiel Would Make This Game Better?

Ep76 WTF in Vanadiel Would Make This Game Better?

April 10, 2022

It should be noted that Fox and I don't view the game as inherently flawed and in real need of improvement. Greater emphasis on balancing or updating aspects of jobs and their interaction is far more important to us than skipping a CS, making all weapons trivial to obtain, or changing the UI to look like the traumatic brain injury that is FFXIV.
As always the heart of the matter returns to us all, who we choose to be, and what we want to collectively become. Fox and I find this more lacking than the matter of anything SE has to deliver on. Such as actually policing the community they are responsible for or churning out new and exciting things. We don't mean to rehash the same trope, but ultimately it is a message that unfortunately needs to be hammered home if we want to be more than the sum of a separate selfishness. That is how we improve this game, and how we fix the issues we so fail to see as indirectly caused by the status quo of the lowest common denominator that we have accepted.
