Im guessing asking for less focus on Ruby and her eyes would be hoping for too much?
We already had that, it was called RWBY Volume 5. And aside from choppy writing and bad fights , Ruby getting less screentime and development than legit side characters was a huge complaint.
We've had one volume where she is, albeit somewhat tepidly put into the spotlight, and the first volume where silver eyes are even slightly elaborated on, and it's to much for you?
What the fuck indeed.
I still have my gripes with the show, big ones, but for the most part having her actually be a team leader that drives the plot was one of the better choices made in V6. As for the silver eyes, I've seen you act like they are completely OP and are too much a plot device.
Anything can be considered a plot device if you reach far enough, but that aside, SEs really are not the end all be all. They have limits even based on the relatively small amount of knowledge we have, and are far from foolproof.
Even with those she could only kill some of the Apathy, and the team still needed to get the fuck on outta dodge. Not much an OP power when she couldn't even spam them to kill weaker, even if dangerous Grimm. Maria's past showed too that they are fucking useless if you get mobbed by humans, and serve to put a target on the SE warriors backs.
Even in the finale we saw some, lack of better words, limitations on them. If a SE person is consumed by negativity, or worse, loses their desire to protect life, the eyes become no better than normal eyes.
Don't get me wrong, I want further improvements long term to the writing, but your complaint seems a little strange.
Of what I want in V7 aside from better writing in general is longer more standard episode length in line with televised anime, Yang and Blake to have continued mental turmoil for having to kill Adam, regardless of him deserving it that would have to be hard on them, elaboration on the SDC and it's branding practices, better portrayal of faunus discrimination in general, and info on team STRQ, especially Summer and why Qrow is such an alcoholic.
