    a) Nothing you do in "offline mode" can possibly be allowed to affect the online world
    b) Er, how are you going to form parties?
    c) It would require downloading all the server code to clients. Bad, BAD idea.
    d) Why?

    To sum up, no thank you.

    FFXI is an online, party oriented game. Offline play is pointless.

     Tell ya what, Make a new character. Do not:
    •  Trade with anyone.
    •  Talk to anyone.
    •  Party with anyone.
    •  Use the Auction house.
    And that would be what Offline play is like.

    No point to it, though, since you can't possibly be allowed to
    keep the items into the online game.

    "No, really, I got the Monster Signa beating Hoo Mjuu offline!
    I didn't rewrite the data..."

    Not to mention the fact that actually camping the stuff offline
    (i.e., no competition) is hardly any fairer...



    Can't do it, sorry mate.

    No, you really can't.

    Well, maybe if it was a little bit different (making it soloble) and create a storymode then I guess it could work.  Wouldnt happen though. =P

    Well each Final Fantasy has there own world, so XII would be different.  We are talking about Final Fantasy XI's world here. =)

    There's a pletoria of other FF games that are single player, why would you want this game as single player?

    heh if I want to play "offline" I take off my LS, turn on "away" and level BST my NPC or farm.

    Sure I'd play the offline mode, if it was fun.  You know the oppisite of what online mode is.

    I find it simply amazing that someone can ask a simple question and the rtards that inhabit this site turn it into a flame fest. Answer his question and leave it at that, this type of concept has been tried and used before for the initial character development phase of an online game. As to the initial question for me its both yes and no, there are times I would like to see an off line version of the MMO's I play for a variety of reasons but having that kind of ability simply breeds abuse and exploitation.

    There goes another fanboi making it personal.  Well I guess since I insulted your only girlfriend it was personal.  I'm sorry if I offended her.
