    Trion LEGALLY has to give that player a refund, if they said they were going to deliver said items in a package and within a certain time period, said player has a right to a refund, Trion is pushing there limits on legal terms, and my advice to that player would be to push Trion on that issue and let them know that hey thats 150$ right there if I don’t get a refund you’ll take it a step further and you’ll see them in court. Because nowadays 150$ is alot.

    Wow really? Are you guys that slow? Do I even need to answer this? I don’t even need to look at your video to answer your question. All MMO’s are single player. They’re so easy now n’ days they don’t even require a party or cooperation with other players.

      So.. In ffxiv I can do all dungeons alone? .. It’s needed for story line…

      Uh? It’s like your pool of MMO is pretty small comparing single player to easy doesnt make any sense to me, Infact one of the hardest MMO I’ve played being the Guild Wars series could be fully played solo.

      Needing a group to do content vs. enjoying to do content with a group is very different. I just started playing Skyforge, and I COULD go solo if I wanted to. It’s totally an option. But I choose to do it with a group because it’s fast and it’s fun. That’s what a lot of games are really lacking: Fast and fun. That’s not to say it isn’t hard. And isn’t cheap as hell. Friggin’ one shot kills and all, but the game itself is pretty fun. Now if it didn’t have weekly caps…

      Ahem. Back on topic. So what if games are solo friendly? I played FFXI and the only way to level in that game was a party. If no one was playing, then you couldn’t play. It made it hell for people like me who had weird schedules to play, and I could play at a comfortable pace. FFXI was a pretty sweet game, but needing a party to do EVERYTHING killed it for me.
