Last night, FFXIV Director/Producer Naoki Yoshida attended a player run in-game event on the Tonberry world.
It’s said that during the event, people discovered that he was on the server and began to swarm the area. Players repeatedly fired the canons on their Magitek mounts and prevented Yoshida from being able to teleport by spamming him with a barrage of trade requests.
Being human, and understandably frustrated by the outcome, Yoshida gave an old fashioned hand gesture to let the disruptive players know how he felt.
Update: It has since been clarified that the picture of Yoshida was taken out of context. He was simply showing off his ring. I’ll however, still pretend that it’s Yoshida simply continuing to be awesome.
