I'm looking to return to FFXIV (return is a generous term, I suppose, I never made it passed level 20 on a couple of jobs) and seeing as it seems the game has a somewhat more stable player base than when I last gave it a whirl and people seem to genuinely be enjoying some of the new content and inclusion of traditional jobs, I figure it would be a lot more fun to return to a game where I'll actually have some people to talk to, get to know while I'm playing and, heaven forbid, ask the occasional noobish questions to. I'll be starting from scratch unless there's a server transfer feature (I might want to start from scratch anyways to immerse myself in the world a bit - it's probably been close to a year) so a LS that isn't solely focused on end game activities and might actually be willing to join me/aid me in the journey TO end game would be ideal. I played FFXI for years, well passed the Abyssea expansions, and while I won't exactly miss the grind, my fondest memories are all from pre-ToAU when group play and cooperation was the only way to achieve anything.
It would also be ideal if the LS had a healthy social atmosphere and wasn't solely focused on in game achievements. I'm a 25 year old guy who enjoys quality games, good movies, beer (or whiskey), sports and working out. I played 4 years of college hockey and you could say I'm a bit of a fanatic. I love video games as well, but you could almost call them a guilty pleasure. I actually haven't played any MMOs other than FFXI and FFXIV briefly (I tried DCUO as well, but only because I love Batman) but I love the Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, Arkham and Mass Effect series. Anyhow, didn't mean to write a personal ad, but I was hoping to join a LS where I'll actually look forward to logging in and chatting while I go through the early grind, even if I'm playing solo (helps fight the boredom). If it sounds like I might be a fit with your LS, let me know and I'll get in touch once the game updates and I create a new character.
