SorryImLate - Linkshell for New/Returning Players Follow

Made up of mostly returning players who have been away from the game for years, SorryImLate is set on exploring all of the old content, and achieving everything there is to do in this vastly expanded MMO. Also, we welcome all new players and not only acknowledge questions or requests for advice, but encourage it; Our ultimate goal is to have a tight-knit team of players who understand the mechanics of FFXI, and more specifically their job of choice.

Other things about us, we do NOT level the traditional way it is much faster to do GoV/Aby but we do like to set up skill-up parties to cap skills. We plan on creating somewhat static teams to do Nation Missions, Zilart, CoP, and all of the other expansions for nostalgia and the rewards for completion.

Currently we are a small shell, soon we will have a main website, voice chat, etc (under construction) for major events in the near future when we do have enough active members to participate.

Contact Elydia, Derock, or Xanthe in game for an invitation or reply to this thread and we can get in touch.

Thanks for reading, and see you in game!

This sounds...awesome!

Good stuff man, this is the kind of LS a lot of returning players will be looking for. Props to you for hosting something like this, and I just might join you. Sounds hype! I've always wanted to go back and do all the story in this game I never got the chance to complete!

Hi, I just restarted a new character after quitting almost 6 years ago (shortly after ToAU came out). I'd be interested in joining your linkshell. FWIW I have a teamspeak server set up that could be used. It's currently limited to 8 people at a time, and occasionally in use for people playing league of legends, but could possibly be upgraded. My in game name is Katmandu. I'll try sending a /tell next time I'm online.

Hey guys thanks for the replies.

A lot has changed since the original post, we have merged with another similar shell and the numbers are steadily growing. It's a great time to come back to the game and experience old content with us. I'm at work so i dont have much time to go into detail, but with the merge we felt it was only fair to start a new shell as opposed to picking between the two. Until i can update my post, contact Elydia, Derock, or Obsidianace in game for a pearl.

Good stuff Shinran!

When you get a chance, I'd like to know the name of the new shell, and how things are going in there! Do you all still have the same game play hoping to go back and see all the old story / content? That is what really got me excited! Also are you still looking for more members / potential new characters leveling up in the LS?

Give us the details on the new shell when you get a chance!

The new shell is called StillPlayingFFXI and we bring new/returning players in daily.

The game may be dead to some Mahun but for most of us, we're just getting started Smiley: nod

Also we just set up a website to plan future events. Contact Obsidianace, Derock, Elydia, Xanthe or Dezolis for a pearl.

Gotcha.

I admit to being new, but im sure i worked out this search engine sufficiently to find you guys.

Searched for your names (made my search options extend to "world" ) but no results were found. Does this mean that for a person to show up on your search, they need to be online?

This is so terribly noobish of me. Perhaps it would be easier to just find me instead if you dont know why i cant find any of you?

Thanks.

The person does have to be logged in for you to see them, however if you type in '/befriend NAME' you can add the person to your friends list, it's easier to see their online status then. I'm at work for a few more hours but i will try and get in touch with you asap in game.

Hi, I'm an old FFXI player from days gone by and I've decided to pick up the ultimate collection and start fresh again rather than restore my old character. Your LS sounds like a great place for someone like me and I would love to join.

One question I have is about member play times. I live in the EST timezone and play in the evening between 7-10 pm, are there a decent amount of players on in that time span?

I'm currently letting my client update while I'm at work and hopefully will be making a char tonight and I'm trying to find a suitable server to play on.

Hello Kegoru,

I myself am in the CST timezone and there are always players online in the shell. I believe a few are even Oceanic so you'll find various people online at all times really.

Give us a shout in game, would be great to have ya aboard.

I tried /befriend with Obsidianace, Dezolis, Crolo and Derock, but it would not work because they are not online. What times are active for this linkshell?

I was able to get a hold of Crolo about 8pm mountain time and get a link pearl from him. The LS name seems to be StillPlayingFFXI though.

Hey GTC sounds great, we are on at various times but from what i've seen the main window for all players is between 10AM-1AM PST

I'm on a full account. Unfortunately for my FFXI playing today, I have a number of family visiting, so I won't be able to make it on tonight. I'll check in tomorrow.

A buddy and I are about to come back to the game and run duo through the early levels. We won't require much help but may have a few questions since a lot has changed. We're starting fresh since it's been so long since we last played and were looking for a fun, active LS to join up with. Is the window still open for joining up with you guys, Shinran? The game's downloading now; then, I'm sure there will be an *** of updates to download before I can play.

Happy Easter!

I just got a perl today,and everyone is really friendly. I can't speak for the shell, but I'm fairly certain they are still welcoming people.

I have been wanting to get into the game again and start playing after several years away. I bought the game and tried to play about 6 months ago and I lost interest quickly after I could not find anyone to play with on the server I chose. Something made me want to try again recently and after finding this thread I decided it was meant to be. I'm currently installing updates and will contact someone as soon as I am able to get in. Thank you to everyone involved with starting this up. I look forward to rekindling an old flame.

I used to play before TOAU, but I only made it to lvl 47 so I missed out on all the later content. I am determined to beat the Shadowlord, Zilart, Promathia etc but was worried it would be impossible because there was no one who had the same interest.

If you guys are "playing the game" and not just Abyss grinding, I would love to join your LS if you are still inviting.

Also, if you are and if you don't mind, is there any way I could get a gold pass? I will be making my character sometime tomorrow night.

Hey. I've just returned to FFXI after several years away. I never got very far the first time (only up to level 30-ish), and I always felt that I missed out by not finishing the storyline, not getting to play endgame, etc. I hope to get the full experience of FFXI this time, and I'm interested in joining your linkshell. My ingame name is Caysen.
