Might be interested in comming back, but i've been wondering.

Is it back to being all nice and quiet, without campaigns ending within 10 seconds?

Back to 1000 people at most being online?

What is the state the server is in now as far as those things are concerned, or other things as well?

With love,

Suri

Server population seems to be 1500+ at off-peak times and I've seen it over 3000 now and then. I imagine campaign battles are pretty underpopulated right now since they added a similar system to Abyssea with much greater rewards.

That's a shame. I was sort of hoping the server not to be crowded anymore. In any case, thanks for your speedy reply :)

Sup Surian ^^

While its "crowded"......Abyssea was designed to stop overcrowding. Put it to you this way: EVERYONE was leveling their 75-80 jobs in Abyssea 2-3 months ago. As you may remember I start all my parties (in Abyssea its alliances now), and maybe with the exception of Saturday mornings (6 AM - 11 AM EST), I NEVER had a problem with getting a camp. Put it to you this way: the three zones introduced in June could hold 16 ALLIANCES in "desired" EXP spots. I havent played for about 2 weeks (I am interviewing for a new job and a requirement is I write a PPT for some complex operating systems - wish me luck this Thursday!), but from what I understand, the three new zones are very similar....and the three zones released in June can still be used for leveling 80-85, it just takes a bit longer to ramp up.....

Crowding really isnt a problem anymore.

Well, that's good to hear :) Glad you're still around little buddy. I havent played in like 7 months, the whole fact that i kept track of that is only more of an indication that i really need to get my FFXI fix again. Or mithra.

Oh, and it looks like the guy who took my name hasnt been playing for a month either according to FFXIAH :3 Here's to hoping he deleted his char. I still have that GM deal for the name laying around as soon as it was available :3

Oh, nothing major, but i have two.

One is my enternal name struggle guy. Still bothers me, but probably can be fixed with him leaving for FFXIV. No AH history for a month makes me happy, but if you could check, that would be sweet.

I'd like to leave out names.

*waves at Surian*

Curiously population doesn't seem to have been affected by FFXIV at all during Japanese peak time. /sea all on Saturday (~early afternoon EU time) returned 3998, same again on Sunday 3950ish (mid afternoonish). That's pretty much what I see every weeekend. Most weekday nights are between 1500 and 2K EU time. That might change next weekend following the general release of XIV, but probably not by much.

Bastion during Japanese peak was a lag fest for me as a result, but I still got 25K in an hour and a bit, and it's not as bad as a really bad campaign lag-wise.

Thanks to Magian trials and Abyssea the population is pretty well spread overall though. I wandered through Terrigan and Ro'Maeve doing trials on Saturday and they were no more busy than in the last days of Kujata. Not touched Campaign since Abyssea came out.

All in all the higher-than-Kujata population is beneficial for finding people to do things, while the design of Abyssea (lots of camps, lots of fast-repop NMs, lots to do) has been sufficent to prevent overcrowding.

With you on the name thing. The other Gii has not been active on the AH in over 2 years, but the name is still locked D:

Well, i'm back now.

Can't really say for how long. Checked my name, isnt available still. Did purchase the two add-on things.

Unfortunately, yeah, the whole thing about logging in completely naked, stripped of gear, gil and pretty much anything to get me going again is pretty fun...

Figured i'd naked bard some ISNM's, then i realized no one buys Kroma Ore again... So... crap. Never going to get some of those things back now.

The best armor right now is literally like 10k per piece (its bought via the new "conquest points" in Abyssea). ****, I will even give you all 3 entire sets for free (most of it gives haste, so....bonus). Only catch is its lvl 78.

If you wish, I am about to start lvling like mad again, getting all my jobs 80-85. I can get you into an abyssea party as the puller or box opener, and you can do that naked. Bonus, you will learn how to do Abyssea.

As a note....I got the job! It was a difficult presentation, but its going to be a decent pay raise. I *almost* told the interviewer the pains it was to not play FFXI for a month while I wrote the PPT, but decided to hold off :p

Congrats on the job, Mani! :D

Still had most R/EX's (crimson legs, thank **** for that o.o)

It's not great, but it'll do. EXP'ing in Abyssea sounds awesome.

Unfortunately, today is also my birthday, so i'll be gone most of the evening getting drunk :p

Been looking for ya when I log on. Have yet to be on at the same time as you lol. I was wondering if CU would have a home for me and my friend (ryoshino)? :) It's become a kinda lonely game without a linkshell and the server seems deserted lol. Especially in the low levels :3

Sure, you both can (re)join CU ^^ Although for this week/next week I wont be on much due to getting a new job. Try to find Ladyari, Vaprak, Chepeepe or Midknight.
