Not as hyped for Endwalker as I should be?

2021.12.01 13:29 Alrik_40000 Not as hyped for Endwalker as I should be?

DISCLAIMER: I am posting unmarked spoilers for the entirety of the plot up to this point. That should be obvious, but I am writing this to warn you away if you haven't completed the game up to the final patch of Shadowbringers. .
.
.
.
Okay, time for my own little confessional. I should start by saying that I am not trying to bring anyone down or take away from anyone else's personal excitement or hype for the new expansion, so don't necessarily let anything I am saying affect you personally. With that out of the way... I have to admit I think that I am not as hyped for Endwalker as the majority of the playerbase is.
It's hard to explain somewhat but I very much feel like I was more excited to move into Shadowbringers than I am to move into Endwalker. I started the game in late Heavensward. My brother had been playing it for about a year prior and while I love the FF series and I enjoyed the plot and the characters of XIV, I basically just watched as he played through and enjoyed it by proxy. That all changed when I saw the Omega vs. Shinryu cutscene in 3.56. That cutscene alone was epic enough to get me to actually play the game. I bought a PC and went through the story as quickly as I could, finally finishing the last patch of Heavensward the same night as the server shutdown, so I just barely made it into Stomblood. That was the first expansion I experienced from the beginning and while the story had its flaws, I very much enjoyed playing through it with my brother and my RL and FC friends.
During the process of going through Stormblood, the FC disintegrated. The FC leader, who is an RL friend of my brother and I, dropped the game and hasn't really returned much since. My brother became disillusioned with the “Stale” leveling and gearing process, complaining that the content cycles (while reliable) were too predicable, and the tomestone grind was getting same-ey, and decided to drop out just before 4.1. I stayed subbed and playing, doing other things with him but always continuing to play 14, making progress through the patches as they dropped, making new friends in game and still enjoying myself despite basically playing it alone. I beat the Four Lords, I beat the Omega raids, I even dabbled in Savage raiding, though I didn't enjoy Eureka enough to get any of the relics. When Shadowbringers was announced, I was super excited as I thought the story had truly improved toward the end of Stormblood and I was very intrigued by the story arcs of Elidibus, Zenos, the plight of the Scions, and who was calling to us and why it was more important than the battles on the Source. My brother didn't come back until after the early access but we had a really great time going through the story together again. However, he began going back to other hobbies around 5.1, and once again I was alone. He did return in 5.4, and while we actually did more ShB relics than any previous expansion, which was quite a bit more interesting and tolerable than Eureka. However, he ended up going back to college and continuing his education, and while I waited for him to do his schoolwork I.... just didn't accomplish as much as I did in Stormblood. As opposed to Stormblood, I never finished the Eden raids and I never finished the Sorrow Of Werlyt. I actually have more left on the table from ShB than previous expansions, and it feels bad. I never even finished some of my personal goals, such as doing the above content, and getting more of my jobs to 80, so in a way I still have a lot of “unresolved stuff” from this expansion in my mind and I am sure that contributes to that feeling of reluctance.
As for the upcoming story itself.... Having experienced the storytelling and plot of Shadowbringers, I have to admit I am not as interested in the “epic conclusion of Hydaelyn v Zenos”, as I feel the consequences of summoning them and the effects it has on the people of the Source and shards is more interesting than the ACTUAL conflict between the two. Especially after seeing the near-loss of Norvrandt, how hard Ardbert and his friends tried to save it, and how we managed to save everyone there after it faced near-destruction not once but twice. I honestly have never felt that the Source was in a single bit of peril, and certainly not as much as Norvrandt ever was, and thus I don't have the same attachment to it save for perhaps Ishgard, which was most certainly in danger of destruction til we intervened. I also grew attached to the NPCs of The First, moreso than the ones on the Source. Honestly the only characters from the Source I even really care about in any meaningful way are the Scions after undergoing some character development in Stormblood and Shadowbringers, and the characters from Ishgard. I really don't care that much about the Grand Company leaders save perhaps Raubahn, and I do like the Domans and the people of the Steppe. However, I have much more of an attachment to the people of the First than I do the Source overall.
I don't care about Garlemald and have never really had a ton of interest in exploring it or dealing with its politics. They always seemed like a bit of a generic evil faction, and with the revelation that they are an Ascian puppet state, I immediately knew they were of little real consequence to the overall story. Perhaps Endwalker will make me care a bit more, but I have never been as zealous about “LET'S GO TO GARLEMALD!!!!” as a large chunk of the community. I certainly never thought it was going to be as important as people like Ethys Asher and Anonymoose thought it would be. So I am honestly not that interested in whatever is going on there, other than the two villains are doing bad stuff we need to stop. I actually like both Zenos and Fandaniel and I know that there's probably more to them than meets the eye, but for now they just seem like evil people doing evil things and it's not really drawing me into the Garlemald stuff.
I'm also afraid that the plot is going to rely too heavily on “Character Death” which often just seems like a cheap source of drama. I also am concerned that we're just suddenly supposed to be attached and interested in Venat, even though she's just being introduced. I can't really elaborate too much, it's just a vague feeling I have that the plot of Endwalker isn't going to be as deep or as emotionally involved as Shadowbringers, outside of “OMG beloved characters are dying, much drama”. I may be wrong, and I shouldn't underestimate Yoshida and Ishikawa, but... I'm just not as hyped as I was for the last go-round.
Sorry for the blog post but... I wanted to offer an alternative viewpoint. To maybe let people know they aren't alone if they're feeling a reluctance to leave ShB, if they feel like they are not as “on the hype train” as everyone else around them seems to be. What do you think? Am I wrong to think or feel this? Should I just “get hype” instead?

2021.12.01 13:29 Kweldulf useEffect() is called without detecting change in second argument

Hi everyone, I am experiencing the weirdest bug, maybe I'm missing something about the details of how these hooks work, but it would be my belief that the state in useEffect should reflect that changes to the second optional argument. Anyway here is the code:

 const [scopeVars, setScopeVars] = useState([]); useEffect(() => { console.log("using effect:", scopeVars); /* further stuff irrelevant */ }, [scopeVars]); const addScopeVar = (value) => { let newArr = [...scopeVars]; newArr.push(value); console.log("new scope vars:", newArr); setScopeVars(newArr); }; 
addScopeVar is a callback passed onto a component containing a button, and it's called into the button's onClick prop. The output of the code is as such:
new scope vars: > Array [ Object {name: "name", type: "float"} ] using effect: > Array [] 
The output was transcribed by hand from console.
I tried every method of copying the scopeVars array (thinking it might be a reference issue), including JSON.parse(JSON.stringify(scopeVars)). This behaviour is what happens no matter what.
So my question is, why does it happen? How to ensure that when entering useEffect scopeVars will already be set to the new array?

2021.12.01 13:29 sweaner Confusion about billing discount

I am currently on performance pro internet. I was able to call to renew the 39.99 per month pricing as opposed to 59.99 a month. My plan shows that the future monthly rate was supposed to start on November 16th, however my next bill for December 4th is still showijg 59.99. Will the upcoming bill be changed, or will the reduced price begin in January

2021.12.01 13:29 KillaVNilla You can change the radio station!

I keep seeing posts about people who are tired of certain songs or wish there was different music to listen to. Obviously zeroing the music and listening to Spotify is a great option. If you want to listen to the in game music, check out the radio in the tool section. There's a classical station, a mellow station, etc. I think there are 5 or so different stations. You can also skip songs
