Wow. All my posts are gone. lol. I'm not sure where or why, but I recognize a lot of names here. lol. I doubt anyone really remembers me though. I was mostly gone by... I don't know, Abyssea. I remember the nostalgia creeping in and randomly arguing with Seriha a few years ago about something. I guess that's the only reason my account is still here. It's crazy to think how far this website has fallen really. From probably the most popular FFXI community, where most of the useful information(but often wrong XD) was, to being so dead that almost all of it has been pruned. Smiley: frown Even these emojis bring nostalgia... lol

I've argued with plenty of folks over the years, so would need a bit more to go on. Gonna guess rdmdontdie or something like that by trusting my instinctual interpretation of word flow. :P

That said, I'd say the decline was inevitable between SE basically phoning it in with Adoulin, the preferential treatment of XIV, and the OF eventually existing as a more direct line of communication even if the people who couldn't keep their inner a-hole in check hated the place after getting banned.

If it's any consolation, I'm still pretty much dunking on tryhards in other games when it comes to them defending poor design choices, imbalances, and needless gatekeeping. Referencing XI has been an occasional talking point at times when trying to explain how similar problems wound up unfolding here. I'll just remain more broadly disappointed in the gaming industry and its descent into micro-transaction hell, mandatory online for games that don't need it, and the usual "as a service" blah.

Stopping by to mention I relapsedstarted playing again after seven years and the game is the best it's ever been.

Also just realizing I created this thread a month before the pandemic really hit. Surprised it took me this long to land back in XI.

I'm pretty sure that XI is the only MMO where players will spend their whole lives off and on. Play a year, take 2 years off. It's not healthy, but perfectly sane. Now wonder why SE named their website "We Are Vana'diel.
