So was originally closed beta player in 2008 on US server, spent 4 yrs playing and admit to spending maybe $1000-$1500 over that time (not much compared to the 10s of 1000s some have but still a fair amount) . Quit at end 2012 cursing the overpriced cash shop and gamble boxes but at least having had a good time, max lvl 150 and league one in FL.
Bored now, just cancelled FF14 arr sub and waiting on elite dangerous, looked around and Europe now have a dedicated English server and only 2 mths old.
In all these threads someone moans about cash shop (I think I did) and how to compete you need to spend. Then there's always one who shouts they never spent a dime and were in Div 0 and had all best gear.
So I have set myself a challenge, see how far I can get without using cash shop. Luckily I have the time to invest as I am easily gaming 4-7 hours a day
Graphics have changed (new starting area, and I don't recognise some of the monsters or map), new main characters, you get a full team whilst recruiting the mercs you actually want but gameplay is the same.
So much to re-learn plus a lot of new stuff
OMG 1 hour in and found people from my old server, have declined offer of power levelling, gonna give this experiment my best shot.
