It's official. I disabled my Content IDs this afternoon, and took up a friend's offer to convert to the Dark Side. I'm now officially: For The Horde.

Of course i'm still going to visit this forum every day, just because Ifrit's server forums are as interesting as a squirrel perched on the edge of a barrel of sulfuric acid. Who needs to talk about anything FFXI-related? *****, *****, *****, *****, *****...and that's why we always come back for more.

On a related note: SE extended it's 3-month deletion policy on deleted Content IDs to at least 12 months, if not forever, since they're not exactly rolling in the Content ID storage at the moment. A few million Content ID slots for about 500,000 people. So delete away and take your breaks. If anything, you can come back during Adventurer's Appreciation if they do decide to delete your data altogether.

P.S. LFG for 3 hours; fvck you
P.S.S. And the chocobo you rode in on, too

As I understand it; you only pay the 25 bucks once, then you can transfer all you want after 90 days from last transfer. Which I might be due to go wherever here shortly since the jump to Caitsith. Not like i'd want to. Couldn't get me to log in, much less leave my Mog House this month.

Don't knock it until you've trialled it. I could get a free month just referring you. I could see Filian as a Alliance. Filian too much of a goody-goody to be a proper Hordeling. Sev, you'd come Horde. I can see you happy as a Troll.

Escaflone, hmm...Blood Elf. Just because your FFXI model was one of the pretty *** boys. You know, full lips, midways long, blond hair. You can be Horde, too.

I have a level 67 Horde character Warne. It was the most boring time I've ever spent and the community is garbage. Enjoy yourself though.

I'd have to agree with Fil here. I only played WoW for the free two weeks that you got by dl'ing off the Blizzard homepage, and in that time I took a troll something-or-other to around Lv.25; I didn't really like the whole quest-your-exp deal, and the community seemed like it was a bunch of 13 year olds that couldn't get over the fact that they just discovered epeen.

All other MMO that I've played seemed like nothing more than a WoW clones, from GW to LoTR. About the only thing I can thing of that I liked more in WoW than I do in FFXI is that females in WoW all have huge bewbs. Smiley: laugh

Also, I would much rather hang out with Fil's goody-two-shoes attitude than have to deal with the kids that can't wait to shove their penises into the next pile of drama that comes along... of which WoW has no short supply of.

A role model for all aspiring heros, Tidus!

Only thing I miss about FFXI, the game itself, is Mithra. Although i'd give up all the Mithra in the game if SE would implement the free-roaming, zero zone loading WoW has. Just swim off into the Bastore Sea from Valkrum, or jump off the Jeuno-Windurst airship if you want to divert to Crag Mea. No imagination in movement at all in FFXI. Same tired old routes, because you can't do anything to change the limitations SE leashes you to.

Too true. Blizzards idea of gameplay progression is to make something bigger and longer and that's it. Oh, this instance is too easy for you now? Well try our next one where you have to fight TWO mobs per pull!! And when that's too easy...THREE MOBS!!! Once you've levelled to about 15 or 20 you will already be perfectly familiar with the progression to 70 and endgame. Imagine if FFXI's _only_ activity besides levelling was Dynamis. Only instead of 9 or 10 zones, there was about 50 of varying difficulty for varying level ranges. Seriously, erase everything else out of the game except that and levelling, and you've got WoW.

Oh yes, and add the fact that if you can tie your shoes and count to 4, you're already among the top 3% of players in the game.

No real difference between the two when it comes to group instances. Just in the mechanics of how to run it. Except the whole, actual instance instead of a single reserved server that you have to wait on, or things like Meeting stones, Warlock summoning, and world invites to drag people to the instance who are late. Or mounts you don't have to go to a stables for to hurry it up.

Try endgame FFXI instances after WoW, though. Yawn. FFXI's pace is slow, and even as a RDM, you aren't doing nearly as many things at once. You get used to Shift-1, Shift-2, Shift-3 at a minimum to run through 36 hotkey slots to get what you want before you start gear-swapping. Barring you have unlimited macro slots from Blizzard just for that purpose in the first place, or your plug-ins that SE would have a caniption if you had installed on FFXI.

I've tried WoW, LotRO, lolVanguard, and there's something that FFXI has that the others don't. Maybe it's community, maybe it's the forced grouping that requires people to work together to maximize results, or something else I can't nail down. The point is even with outdated graphics, a horrible user interface, stupid end-game mobs that everyone on the server has to compete for (hi2u 3 kings), mediocre story, and a host of other issues, it still has me playing it to this day.

I agree whole-heartedly Fhq, there are certain intangibles to it. One thing I've nailed down though is the atmosphere in FFXI. Everything is woven carefully together, whether it's the storyline or the the actual zones. They have an absorbing effect on the player I find. Like in WoW, you have your standard lava zones, swamp zones, forest zones and snowey mountain zones, all staggered appropriately, and it all ends up feeling very contrived and lame. The community is hard to beat in FFXI as well, whether you realize it or not.

mediocre story


Huh?!

last time I checked, FFXI actually has the best storyline and plot immersion of any other MMO out there. I've played WoW, Horizons, LotR, PotBS(beta), Earth and Beyond, and a couple of other lesser ones. Each one seemed nothing more than a WoWclone, complete with lackluster story that only reveals itself in spotty npc chat during quests.

FFXI may not have the shiny shiny that other MMOs have, but it does have things that redeem it for me. Things like character developement, depth, plot lines, and qiqirn.
