FFXI has changed drastically over the years. Many of the expansion packs have brought sudden changes. Some people loved the changes and other people loathed them. The original version of FFXI is almost nothing like the current version of the game. It's a mistake to assume that someone who did like FFXI likes it today. So my question is which time period of FFXI are you the most fond of. I'd add a poll if I knew how to.
For me FFXI was at its best before the ToAU expansion. Vanilla and RoZ was already difficult and COP took the difficulty another step forward. The darkness motif was appealing to me too. The promyvions, forests, and dungeons were all much darker than other areas. The darkness and difficulty, combined with the punishing death penalty that already existed in FFXI made me a little scared sometimes.....
Anyways, I'm curious about what people will say.
