Hi! I found this through mmorpg.com. I thoroughly excited about FFXIV! I played FFXI from 2001 until 2004. In 2001 I was working a cubicle bee job where I was home everyday by 4 and playing by 4:15 until lord knows what time. In 2004 I decided I couldn't continue to work in that environment and perhaps it was time to pursue the career I had always secretly desired to do (teaching) so I started college and found that it was much harder to be logged in be a certain time and I could no longer afford to stay up late a night, as I was now going to school and working. I had less time during the week and found that I wouldn't even log in at all because I could not get much accomplished in the 45 - 60 minutes I had. I still played on the weekends but it eventually got to me that I couldn't play during the week when I could really use that hour break from the real world. So I ended my subscription, came back after a month, ended it again, came back after two months, etc.

I left the game for WoW, which was fun in the beginning but I found that it was always lacking something. I played WoW regularly until the 1st expansion Burning Crusade was released, than the gameplay went down hill for me. I quit and tried LOTRO, which I loved but I missed my guild back in WoW who I still had close connections with through e-mail. I went back to WoW for a while then tried AoC, I enjoyed the graphics and the gritty feel to the world but still missed my guild in WoW so I went back after WoTLK was released. I've been back in WoW since January and have a lvl 80 druid that I raid with. I do love my guild but I am reaching the point where the game holds no interest at all anymore. I have reached the point where I only really log in for raid days and not much beyond that because well the game is boring, at least when I didn't log in for FFXI it was because I knew I didn't have time to do the things I wanted to do, but it was never from boredom.

I miss the intricate details that FFXI had and I'm excited to hear that many of those are coming back to FFXIV. If I get around a group of people I enjoy I am fiercely loyal, as you can tell (a group of people kept me coming back to a game I never really enjoyed all that much). I played a RDM in FFXI and had sooo much fun with it. I'm hoping to find that fun and magic in FFXIV...especially since it will have content for those weekdays when I only have an hour :)

Oh its all good, we all make mistakes, which we both did...hehe

I'm here a lot and I love to talk about things I love, especially FF! Not sure about the others yet, but I'm sure we'll be able to strike up something here and there. I'm just really eager for more details on XIV...
