I got FFXI after some consideration, thinking it would be a good way to kill time until FFXIV Realm Reborn hits. I'm having fun with at the moment but I don't think this is going to be a game that I want to pay2play for, so I'm wondering if I were to cancel my subscription will I still be able to play FFXI, I don't like how the payment is continuous and I really want to pay when I actually feel like it inside of it just paying itself which will happen on the 10th December.


Thanks

If you cancel a subscription, your account will remain active until your 30 day billing cycle ends. I'm pretty sure that includes the free trial 30 days as well.

XI doesn't have the eye candy that ARR (or even 1.0) has, but XI spanks XIV in terms of deep storyline. Give yourself a chance to sink into the expansion missions once you get a job to 99. Many of them can be solo'd at 99, and the story is absolute worth the effort.

Will do, I've just canceled my sub for the time being but I noticed that my subscription plan went from 'continuous' to Free Trial Period.

I'm starting to think I may have paid for 30 days by accident or something. >.> As it was on 10th December for the end date then it went to 9th December.

the 10th of Dec would have been the day you were billed, the 9th is the day the free trial runs out. So you can play up until midnight(depending on your time zone) on the 9th.

This ^^

And not just the expansion missions. I took a short break after being in serious endgame for several years, and came back as a freelance adventurer with no agenda. Since then I've regained my Medal of Altana, done a bunch of Besieged, finished every single quest in Windurst that doesn't have job requirements I don't meet (except for just one that needs unobtanium AH items), and then switched my nation to Bastok so I can try to solo that mission storyline. Even the Shadow Lord was fun, got rather tight on time when he refused to switch out of physical-immune mode enough. After I finish the missions, my next plan is to do every quest in Bastok, and then on to Sandy, and so on. And watch every cutscene slowly at my own pace instead of rushing because others were waiting. I'm just having a good time and enjoying the world, and have the time to stop what I'm doing and help someone else if they need it.

This is the kind of stuff I did in 2004, and why I fell in love with FFXI in the first place. I'm online less often than I used to be, of course, but every minute I spend in Vana'diel is a pleasure again. I'm even taking chocobos, airships, and ferries just for the fun of getting around the world the old fashioned way. Sometimes I'll turn off /names while travelling because it makes the world more immersive.

And I feel like I've hardly scratched the surface of all the content that I bypassed for endgame.
