I wonder how many people that regularly played the game three years ago and made posts on this forum.. still randomly check to see what's up if the idea pops into their head.

I know during my years of hiatus, I'd still pop into the alla forums to view threads.. even if I did not post.

I see you're one of the only regular responders to this server forum these days..

Just been looking through my account >> my posts.. dating years back..
Read through some of the threads and it sparked past memories. Was an interesting time.

Hey, I post in here every now and then myself D:

Although...I cannot guarantee coherence nor can I guarantee any depth or meaning in the posts that I make. I still swing by here pretty often, and this particular server forum is starting to pick up, I believe.

I have been wrong before though...

Yooooooooooo from Yooooooooooo! Or somejunk.

There's a few Yooooo people still around, but you have to search. Most of us don't hang out in the shell as much as we used to, I'm ashamed to say. We beat CoP, and kinda...drifted. I think. Serp's still around semi-regularly. Beam and Ash in a blue moon. And Faiz and I are on a ton.

This forum's kinda dead though. I check out KI once in forever to catch up on my LS drama, but that's about it. I think us Carbuncle-ites keep to ourselves, honestly. ^^

First time I've seen it. Nice video though.
That seemed like a video created by a japanese player[as stated, they were playing before Rise of Zilart release, which did not happen for US until game release]

Unless he had a japanese version..
still, I liked it.

It touched on the eventual evolve of every player.
The loss of initial passion for an MMO.
The loss of adventurism that kept us all logging in from day one.

A majority of people lose this once they've seen something/someone.
It's the "eh, been there. done that." scenario.

I'm personally glad that I took so long in between the many times of quitting the game play in order to forget what I first experienced, although I still partially remember..

Alas, I've canceled my ID's once again til I can afford to play. :[

sad the carby forum is (almost) dead, ...all this knowledge to share and no one to listen /cry. i have a feeling that if i would post a question on here it would take weeks to get an answer. only posts made these days are people complaining bout other people. someone plz... start a decent thread.

The only knowledge you seem to have is that of falsehoods.

There has only been one thread on here within the past month that has been about the degradation of players.. and that was pretty false also.

I know off the top of my head, me, mikhalia, and axciom browse these forums regularly. Among other players past and present. I'm sure more then one of us would be glad to respond to any thread on this forum. :]

dlowdan here is the story for that video, I posted it to Carby forum in '05 I think. http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=37;mid=1114010045180946166 And yeah Jiruu I quit due to lack of activity... noone wanted to do anything but stand around in Aht Urgan so I figured it was a waste of my hard earned gil. There was no level sync at the time, so there was no reason for me to go back to low level areas either... 'cept to PL shell mates.

Well, I do read these forums a lot, but i've never really responded (see post count. I've been playing since late March of 04, and I'm finding it's a pretty nice split of people I've seen for a while and new faces popping up. Proof that this game is still going strong

Yeah, FFXI has plenty more life in it. Usually the only people who insist that it's dying are just people who are sick of it themselves and/or are trying to convince themselves to quit.

Ok,
I was on Carby in 2003 and ended up quitting in 2006.
I had some good friends on here.
I remember Pestilence, as far as I know he is still playing. If anyone on Carbuncle sees him, please tell him Kairn said hey, and "I need a hero!"

Anyway, I remember Smokes, I believe we actually did some PTing together in the Boyahda Tree. I remember he was a **** good puller!
I only remember Wingchild from the forums here, but I still laugh when I remember some of the threads put up by him, Bombard, and Stiltz.

I have a question for some of the "old-timers" on here who post every so often... Did any of you ever think about coming back to FFXI and actually leveling a job by soloing all the way to 75, for a challenge? I've done challenge run throughs on a lot of the old FF games, from FF1 all the way through FFX, and sometimes it sucked but alot of times it was actually fun.
My point was, you've done most everything in FFXI up to and including endgame so you've seen it all already.

I see a lot of people who would like to come back but dont or won't. I used to think about coming back and just taking my time, enjoying all the new bene's and just seeing how far I can take a job on my own. (and I don't mean BM or RD)

Just curious...anyway, hey to all the ancients!

I haven't played in like 2 to 3 years now... Kind of wanting to play again, but I fogot my account password, and sony wont help me get it at all unless I have the disk keys.

I said oh well.

I would say this is probably one of the few times I have posted though, but I did get on here a lot to look at guides.. Thinking about buying another copy of FFXI, and starting from scratch..
