Let me start off by saying that FFXI was, has and will probably always be my favorite MMO. I've met so many friends that are still friends of mine today. It's a game I often think about playing again but due to changes made and other factors, I always find myself unsubbing fairly quickly these days. I've been in search for an MMO to play again for the past couple of weeks and every new release I try seems to be the same. Nothing captures my attention quite like FFXI did back in the day.
A few years ago I started a Linkshell on Titan for the express purpose of playing FFXI the way I remembered. Our roster filled very quickly, because turns out a lot of people miss that and wanted to be involved. Unfortunately, two many cooks were in the kitchen and things started to fall apart. In the time we were together, we completed a good amount of old content and had a lot of fun doing it.
My question is, is there any interest in something like this in 2016?
Playing the game the old way.
- Old school XP parties
- Killing crabs in the Dunesssss!
- Camping NM's
- AF quests etc.
- Sky, Sea etc.
- Playing old content at the level it would have been completed when it was released (75 for high end content)
Maybe something like this already exists? If not, I'd be interested in starting it on the Asura server.
Does the game still have enough life left it in to achieve something like this? Who would be interested?
