Why didnt Final Fantasy 14 Incorporate the Gambit system?

Also the License board.
Ok this has been bugging me for the longest time now but if Square was going to make an online game like FF14 why did they never incorporate the idea like the gambit system and license board from FF12? I mean come on FF12 was the epitome of an online game or at least it felt like it shouldve been one. The gambit System and license board was a genius idea and it couldve really worked in FF14 and probably wouldve made gameplay alot more fluid and enjoyable.

The gambit system is for controlling AI members, an MMO ....does not have AI members (it has pets) so their is no need to control and create gambits as your only controlling yourself.

As for the licence board, it distracts from levelling as it is seperate from levelling, meaning no 'seen' progress would be made, which is the driving force in most MMO's.

Also it was a system built on static stats, and made gear more dependant than it actually should be, enemies also scaled to your level, which would mean instead of an MMO ...it would have to be single player as you cannot have someone fighting a lvl 1 ant for example ...but it appears as a lvl 100 ant to someone else.
