Just a thought for you all, and quite possibly the first and only short post I will ever be capable of:

At any given time, the best FFXI player is the one who is having, and helping others have, the most fun.

I always thought it was the level 75 player with the most powerful, expensive equipment that is a part of the linkshell that has killed the most HNMs!


I completely agree! What fun would a game without....fun?

Boo. I always thought it was me, since I'm so lovable. ; ;

Well said! I doubt I should mention that you're completely right~.

You know, I love helping others out, particularly if its a laid back atmosphere, such as helping getting a Magicked Skull or your key for Kazham or RSE or something simplistic. I've been doing that more and more, I just see leveling as a means to accomplish larger goals and help others do the same, thats all. That to me is more fun then whacking at the same damn crabs/beetles/flies/goblins for the past 45 or so levels.

Don't be afraid of saying the "F" word once in a while, yes, FUN.

P.S. I love your avatar Laute.

I isn't! wow I was misinformed! J/K

Some of the "best" players I have encountered are the ones that I am in a PT with or in my linkshell. They are the ones that I have direct contact with and share experiances. I think it is great to be a lvl 75 with great gear, but honestly; what have you done with me lately?

If you took out 4 hours of your day to help me get a key you are great and if we had a great/fun time doing it then... yeah you are really great!

I am in this game to have fun! And without fun this game becomes "work" and who needs to come home from the office after a long day and "work" another couple hours? Not me.

So in closing I know lots of "best" players. They may not have killed the 4 gods in 45 mins or what have you, but they are the "best" for other reasons.

Best player is that one Taru Mnk in full AF2, you may not have one on your server, but someday..

Nice post.. my new aim is finding this 'best' player, and engaging him in Ballista, since he's probably lower level than me (lowbies have more fun in this game, it's true.. endgame drama mindset).

It's true, the best player is one that helps others enjoy the game. Usually someone who has seen it all and wants to help others see it all too.

Also, high level craftsmen who discount their prices a couple hundred K are nice too.

It all really depends on what one defines as "best." Are they the strongest, but selfish players? the richest? the most welcoming and lovable? the most selfless? Take your pick.
