Played FFXI for 5 years and got banned. I really do not want to reroll at this point in the game.
Games I've tried the past 6 months:
Nothing has come close to the immersion and sense of comradery that FFXI offered. The game is challenging and doesn't hold hands. 4 hour EQ style grinding with the same group all trying to chain level 300+, HNM camping for BB items all day, farming SKY, Dynamis for hours. When you got gear you felt like you earned something. Every reason why people gripe about this game is the reason why I love it. You made real friends in the game and your reputation actually meant something. I could go on and on.
Is FFXI the last of the EQ model? If so, I'll just keep to my offline rpgs and hope that FFXIV produces.
