That’s rather onerous to expect new customers to do that, and shouldn’t rest on the customer’s shoulders in the first place.

‘Disco followed by lobby’ just flashed my imagination with super dated dance club imagery.

My largest question really, is how does a game who’s world is made up primarily of corridors, box canyons and lakes/rivers fenced off my invisible walls smoothly add free flight? Will it only be in new zones engineered specifically for that? Or did Squeenix go back and open the launch world up and add in Z-axis content?
Also, a small gripe: how is it that the RP community doesn’t have an officially tagged server already, haven’t they proven to the devs the viability and longevity of having an RP community in one’s game? Surely it’s not that hard to add the characters ‘(RP)’ to a server’s name in the login select screen. Squeenix could even stipulate that they have no intention of regulating any rulesets and tell the community to police itself, like just about every other MMORPG/ARPG in existence.
It just strikes me as strange and terribly ignorant that they haven’t.

Sigh, really?
For starters, you’re comparing two DPS with one using an i142 weapon against another using an i180 weapon.

Think about that for a second, you’re practically comparing someone using a Zenith relic against another using Augmented Ironworks.

Second, the BLM parse is against a dummy, this is especially important in 3.0, as ANY MOVEMENT will destroy BLM’s rotation.  FFS, read your own sources, these numbers would would not be possible in a real fight, unless the boss is literally the dummy.

Speaking of reading your own sources, the MCH parse post actually have something relevant that you decided to neglect for some reason:
“Just want to clarify a few things. As a level 59 MCN, with a 57 weapon
and ilvl 142, I am sustaining 622 dps after 3min. With an intial burst
of 1000. HOWEVER, upon testing skills individually, ACT is not picking
up on Wildfire . This is a very huge DPS skills for the MCN, and I dare
say that the parse would be much higher were it to be read accurately.
So now to compare to my DRG friend w/ ilvl57 Wep and ilvl 143: He is
bursting for 1200 and sustaining around 750.”

So given same ilvl weapon and similar ilvl overall, a MCH was dealing 622 dps, while a DRG was dealing 750, this is quite reasonable to me.

1. Your claims that everyone else’s claims are unreliable and useless implies that you only trust extraordinarily precise claims or have your own experiences that contradict the claims I have seen repeated hundreds of times over. If you don’t have claims of your own, then I can only conclude that it is useless to speak with you. 
2. I’ll restate this over and over again, but there is NOTHING COMPLICATED ABOUT THIS GAME. Your refusal to accept the experiences of dozens of the most enthusiastic players of the game on their word implies that you believe the game to have enough complexity as to render their testimony null and void, which is absurd in light of this. 
3. MCH at level 59 and i142 doing 622 DPS, which is quite high for a MCH: http://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/3apfqq/mcn_and_parsing/
Meanwhile, a BLM at level 60 and i159 doing 977 DPS: http://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/3aqmys/level_60_black_mage_rotation_v2_977dps_at_i159/
4. BLM parse (http://i.imgur.com/Pmh8Ttk.png) and MCH parse (http://i.imgur.com/IcSpalu.png) by the same guy.
Unless there is something DRAMATICALLY WRONG with the parser (which there is not), there is nothing that explains this disparity save the sheer weakness of the class itself.

Sobach zyrusticae The parser has been updated. 
Nothing has changed.

yes, because a single mob totally survives long enough for meaningful comparisons, I mean, screw parsers, that crap is for people who actually cares about facts.

why would I need to? Again, where did I claim I was ahead of the pack? and what does that have to do with questions ling the competency of ppl whining about things yet haven’t presented a single parse to back up their claim?

You don’t even need parses to know that MCH is doing awful single-target damage in any instance . Simply having two dps attack different targets is enough.
