What's up everyone, name's Craig 28 Canadian Business Student, (I know, 28 year old student? loser much? I'll say this in my defense, sometimes the path we choose in life isn't the one we should be on and a change needs to be made but feel free to tease, I'm rather thick skinned).
Anyway, to the meat of it, I've been a die hard fan of Square since the early 90's when my dad bought Final Fantasy for the NES but for a few different reasons decided to pass on FF 11, two major reasons being a misconception about the type of person that plays mmos and the fact that I have an addictive personality and knew that if I got hooked I would (others would use the term throw away) devote a great deal of my time to it. Having said that a friend got me involved in WoW around the time that Burning Crusade was released and true to form I devoted a great deal of my time to it, the surprise for me was the people that I ended up wasting my time with, I ended up having some real fun with other gamer nerds (and I don't use the term derogatorily as I am one myself).
Now after all the blah blah blah it boils down to my love of Square and the fact that they have an mmo under their belt already so I'm willing to dive into this wholeheartedly and since I am by preference a solo gamer and from what I've heard this will be a party driven game I have decided to seek out some like minded gamer nerds to ensure that I won't have to, for lack of a more positive spin, run with morons to get things done.
After perusing your forums and liking what I've read I have decided upon you guys (I know, aren't you lucky? ;) ) also I discovered in WoW that I am a Grinder/Farmer, I found myself spending hours farming herbs and minerals while listening to music or chatting with my guild or both, and realized that it is much easier for me to just give those to a guildie to level their skills or to make my items than it is to level another character to do that myself or from what I've read so far spend points on a skill that would better be spent elsewhere, so I'll be looking for someone to feed mats to no charge. Now I know I just said after all the blah blah blah and then I added some more blah blah blah but this is the final blah blah blah and I'm hoping to hear from you guys soon.
