Treat it like an interview process. You don’t pass then raids and ex primals won’t be unlocked to begin with. This won’t eliminate all the issues, but it’ll at least give some people a wake up call, and block out people who’s looking to be carried.
The ilv requirement is too vague now due to materia melding. And there are way too many people who’s qualified for ilv but will fail the contents anyways.
If you are good enough for the content, you got nothing to worry about.
If you fail the trial then go work on your skills and gear, when you get better come back and beat it.
If you want to get better but just can’t seem to do it, lots of us are here to help. Go talk to a mentor and ask for advice, and lets hit the dummy.
If you are lazy, well this process is made just for you.
And if most of us can’t pass it, the devs messed up.
Stone Sky Sea won’t cover every job right now because is very basic at its stage. All the devs need to do is expand it. And if they can’t or just don’t know how to, that means they don’t have a full understanding of the content they released. I mean If I was hiring for a job, it’ll probably be a good idea for me to know what makes a person qualified for it, and construct my interview based on that.
Every role should have it’s own SSS trial. If you work at Microsoft I’m pretty sure their programmer have a different interview process compare to their marketing, or their human resources. And if you want to go into another position in your company, you will have to go through a proper interview process for that job, and provide your qualifications and credentials.
The companies that don’t practice this will have wrong people in the wrong places, which will weaken it’s structure.
And I’ll quote myself once again, “This won’t eliminate all the issues, but it’ll at least give some people a wake up call, and block out people who’s looking to be carried.”
All interviews are designed to weed out the people who can’t qualify for bare minimum, if you can actually do the job or not is up to the probation period. Which is not what this post is about.
