I'm just making this post because i'm interested in seeing what game people have been playing before getting interested in WoW. I came from EQ.

Started with UO for 4 years.

Played FFXI for 6 months or so.

To be honest, I was intially avoiding WoW like the plague. All I heard was "WoW this" and "WoW that". Was kind of annoying.

So when I started getting annoyed with FFXI, it stopped being fun and started seeming like work, I went looking for another game.

First choice was Wish, but that's been pushed back to the 2nd quarter of 2005. I signed up for the beta for that, which is in december, so may not do WoW until after that beta.. will have to wait and see.

Anyways, since I quit FFXI I was looking for a new game to play. EQ2 didn't interest me, Wish did (but was going to be so long before that came out) so I decided to look some more into WoW.

So far, I'm liking what I see.

FFXI, worst game...EVER

WACK A$$ FINAL FANTASY!!! Any world where it takes a Dragoon 1 whole week of seeking party to get invited to one, only to have the WHM leave 10 min later and party disband is not the world for me. The **** game could be soooooo much better if the XP system was shifted where you actually can solo a decent,or equal and gain ok XP and downtime wouldnt' matter cause at least you'll be gaining XP while waiting for a PT with a job that's not popular. And Max XP being 200-280 with SC's at any lvl! Thats INSANE, you lose more XP when you die post lvl 40 than you gain!! Urgh oh well before I lose it, I'm patiently waiting for something to change in that game before I try again, my 43 RNG is waiting and WOW is right around the corner....

Seoman!!! YA! Finally someone I know on these boards. So, what're you going to be playing?

Anyway, yeah, I came from FFXI too... though have quit a long while ago. Basically, I've just been killing time by playing random video games (MegaMan Aniversary Collection, Xenosaga, Doom 1&2, MechWarrior 3, etc...)

WoW seems like it's going to be alot of things that FFXI wasn't, which is a good thing. There's been alot of "FFXI VS WoW" threads, but it's basically which style of play you prefer. If you like being in a party at all times, then FFXI is probably your type of game. On the other hand, if you like being able to do things by yourself, having the option to group when you want to, then WoW might be the better fit. It's just all a matter of preference.

Hello fellow FFXI gamer,

I play always FFXI, but very slowly : 64 monk since a long time (2 monthes)...

I'm looking after WoW to give me more fun than in FFXI :

- no more useless wasted time waiting for a party,
- less NM camper : instance dungeon anyone =)
- no bot to start with, and I hope a firm stand of Blizzard against all sort of cheaters...

Well, anyway, I will give WoW a try, and probably more than a try, as I like the features...

regards,

Nolife

I don't know about FFXI but when i was playing EQ most days i couldn't find a group after a few hours so i was forced to solo. When i becamed 45 i joined a good guild and then everything was almost perfect leveling.

i ditched ffxi 2 months ago and im currently Playing DAOC untill WOW comes out.

To guardian lance:

I know how you feel i was a dark knight. I do advise you try DAOC
any ANY class can solo, even the healers, parties are even better cuz u actually Kill a few mobs at a time. oh and almost every class can solo ojs (tough enemies) and reds (very tuff enemies) yellow (even match) are very easy and u can chain em forever.
Its a good game to spend some time until WOW comes out. oh and go to the gaheris server, its the pve server and its fun as **** (no bots)

I'm good, good... waiting on a new computer. *happy grin* oh, and WoW too.

Well, I'm definitely going to be making a warrior (human), a mage (once again, probably human), and a warlock (undead). I'm not sure which one is going to be my main atm, but hopefully they'll all be fun.

So, have you "officially" quit FFXI, or are you still just taking a break?

Haven't officially quit yet. Have to go thru and sell all my gear and distribute the gil to my friends.

We should try to get some of the others to come over to the "dark" side. Smiley: grin

It'd be great if we could, but I know Kail's definitely not interested in playing. In fact, the only person I know of who's shown interest is Kathryn, so I expect to see her around.

A couple of my old LS mates are going to play.

Hey!...looks like im the only one from SWG so far!!


it was my first and only MMO so far, and i played for a good seven months before finally realizing why everyone else was leaving.

reasons (in very brief):

1) Dev incompetence

2) 1 year after launch, it's still a beta game.

3) it's turning into KotOR MMO..if i want that, i'll play Jedi Academy, thank you.

4) Sony sucks

can't wait to see WoW, but for now im off MMO's, and have been playing Warcraft3, Diablo 2, etc.

i just hope the Downloads for WoW arent that bad...im on dial up.....at least my comp isnt too slow.

I played Galaxies for a short while, I guess 3 months or so. I left because of numerous reasons which I won't bother going into here. However, it had potential to be a great game if it had been done right... sadly, it wasn't.

PvE without a doubt.

I am not a PvP fan, because of Griefers and The High-Levels that think they're "uber" because they can kill a lvl 1.

Excellent, that's what I was planning as well. PvP just seems to bring out the worst in people.

I guess now all we have to do is wait for release and see what happens.

Long wait... Nov. 15 at earliest Smiley: frown

Yeah, I agree, "no-rules" PvP brings out the worse.

Well, there open beta... which should hold me over for a bit. Though, I think the stress test is just going to make me want to play the game even more... *sigh*

Ah well... guess I'll just work on beating all the MegaMan games on the anniversery collection while I wait.

Ah.. good ol' UO. That was my first MMO, like 8 or 9 years ago. I stopped playing when they started updating the graphics and my poor computer and 56k connection couldn't handle them. If I knew where my disk was, I'd probably play that to kill some time, though it would suck to have to re-level my character back to where it was when I quit. *sigh* Ah well...

I have yet to find another MMO that could hold my attention for as long a time as UO did. With any luck, WoW will be able to, but who knows...

Fable looks awesome, though I don't have an X-Box, so I don't believe I'll be playing it.

Once my new computer gets here, I'll probably kill some time with Doom 3, though I don't know how long it will take to get through it. If it's anything like the first two, it won't take too terribly long.

4 year vet of UO and yeah, have yet to find a game that can hold the attention like UO can.

It's a game that stands up to the test of time. I still play the 2D version, hate the 3D version with a passion.

I think UO still has the best system for PvP of all the games.

I've been playing Neverwinter Nights, but console RPGs are kind of boring now that I've been playing MMORPGs for years.

UO was just a great over all game. They constantly had awesome events (Fall and Retaking of Tristan... god that was awesome), and a great storyline.

I did like the PvP in that game, to a degree. I liked the fact that you couldn't really tell how much better someone was than you. It wasn't a case of "Oh, you're obviously a lvl 31, so I'm gonna run away." Instead it was "Oh, you're a Grand Master Healer... hrmm..." two hits later, "...And apparently a Grand Master Swordsman too..." *runs away*

Such a great game...

I loved the Tram/Fel aspects.

Would stuck on just a PvE or PvP server, could do whichever struck you at the time.

Yeah, it was nice to be able to hop back and forth between PvP and PvE. I loved how PvE world was nice and pretty and the PvP world was dead...

Btw, do you think we've completely hi-jacked this thread yet?
