The Five Stages of FFXIV MigrationFollow

I was reading a post in FFXI General about players losing motivation to do anything in XI, when a thought struck me. Looking back at some of the recent forum discussion, it suddenly occurred to me where I'd seen this pattern before:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kübler-Ross_model (a.k.a. The Five Stages of Grief)
  • Denial - "Squenix will never drop support for FFXI!"
  • Anger - "But what about my relic!? My Maat's Cap!? Six years of progress means nothing??!?"
  • Bargaining - "Can we at least transfer our characters?"
  • Depression - "I've quit all my endgame shells. I have no motivation to do anything."
  • Acceptance - "Well, maybe I'll give XIV a try..."

Here's hoping everyone finds their own path to stage 5 as painlessly as possible!!

Edit: Damned umlaut...

It rubs the fewell on its skin or else it gets the thwack again.
