Tell Jana and Co. I said hello. Eminent was the last LS I belonged to before quitting FFXI. And I really feel terrible. I joined them at a time where life changes and such prevented me from really participating as I should've. By then I had lost my spark for the game; I was used up and mentally broken from outside issues as well as ingame frustrations.
I'm eager to join FF14. I've been signed up for preferably PC beta for a while now. I built a really kickass machine mostly lying in wait for 14's release. If AMD releases their Hexacore CPU before 14's release as they should be, I'll be pimpin' in style.
Jana and Eminent are good people. Most of them are top tier players with lots of good talent. Say hi to Manipulator for me as well. I really honestly do feel bad that I didn't get to give them my very best work. Eh truthfully, maybe I was never really cut out for the whole all grouping, all the time mentality. I think I would've really missed out on a lot of the fonder memories FFXI has given me. Such as sitting on the edge of Bibiki bay and watching the sun rise in game, as it rises 6a.m. IRL at the same time. Or leading a group of youngling lv 30 players through Ifrit's cauldron safely to the cloister and fending off all of their noobie aggro. Or just sitting on the 2nd floor balcony in Bastok staring at the Metalworks and just talking with friends doing nothing at all productive. Running through the Boyhada Tree and saving a party from their link. /sitting and chilling by the Bloodbead pond or the cloister entrance getting to know newer players and skilling up.
That's really what I enjoyed about FFXI. I never really cared for Sky Farming, Chip Farming, sea runs, or ANY of that ToAU drivel SE thought up. I missed Lower Jeuno and the mismash of players you'd see there. I fought hard at level 20 just to get to Jeuno. The sense of pride, awe and accomplishment I felt when I got there was indescribable. For SE to take that away by essentially moving everyone to Whitegate with that God-awful snake charmer music felt like a slap in the face. I guess I never forgave FFXI for changing on me.
But none-the-less, Eminent were good hard working people, and I wish I could've gave them more. Well, hopefully we'll all see one another again, in another life to come soon.
