Something came to my mind today =O
Even when there's a factor that slime suck at the beginning, I believe most ppl would still go on like:
"so what? they can solo/pawn the 5-10 boss easy! Yet a party of different characters might not be able to do it! SO SEE? SLIME IS TOO STRONG TO BE IN GLOBAL~"
Well, it's true slime has its too-godly power to pawn any boss, but what if (or most likely), it takes twice or TRIPLE the effort to lvl a slime instead of other characters? Well? You can get godly power around from 50, but can you endure the hardship ahead of you?
"Why would it be hard to lvl slime?" There's a few reasons...
1_ Those video u seen, most of the slime use spin/beam attack to quickly ko the boss, but to use those u need to be lvl 30/60, are you really anything before 30? Think hard...
2_ Sterotypes from other players: Now half (or close to) the ppl in Glunia think that when you use slime, you can just solo instead of party, well, it's possible that some players began hating the slime to be in party b.e.c.a.u.s.e they felt slime ruins the fun they had.
3_ If you don't have those great skill ppl seen in video, and ur moving SO slow~ What would ppl think? "ok...looks like they are not THAT strong, and always couldn't keep up, and can't heal too, why don't we look for another player that's NOT slime?" And possibly they're not trying to be mean, they just wanna lvl faster =/
Maybe I think a bit too much...but I believe the above situations will definitly happen when Lime come out =/
