    I lived with my ex-gf for about a year during my FFXI days. She also played, and was in the same LS. I was supposed to pick her up from work one day, but I would have had to leave right before the last window on an 8-day Nid. She was, understandably, quite upset when I asked her to just take a cab home. Looking back at it now, I'd have dumped me too.

    I like how the pirate bay crew phrased it. Everything is irl, other stuff is just afk.
    Online people are people too, worth no less than anyone else. Going forward into the future, it's something the general population needs to learn, fucking fast.

    Originally I had memories of "Nidhogg is going to rage, everyone escape", but now I think of running to Ro'Maeve and trying forever to get YYRs for friends. Ugh.

    So I just installed and updated and there is maintenance.

    WHAT A PERFECT REMINDER OF THE GAME. HOLY SMOKE THE IRONY.

    I think it's best if I leave the past in the past.
    Battery is dead in mine, but it wasn't hard to get SE to remove it, and they have the smartphone token app now. The game is quite different than you remember. The grind has relocated to earning job points, and getting supplies to get the best equipment augments. Reaching endgame is quick, getting what you want from it is not so quick. The free week is active now for another 5 days if you can get your token taken care of. Big EXP rings right now, 150% boost, infinite charges.

    Still, I'd love to log in and see my character one more time, if only just to swap into my gearsets (ugh I'd have to write a new spellcast) and enjoy everything I accomplished. Too bad my account went poof a long time ago though.
    Those 24 levels would take you less than a day now, and you'd have equipment to do an Alluvion Skirmish for good gear shortly after reaching 99. Regearing isn't as big of an ordeal as it was at 75.

    I played this game way too much but I never pulled any of that shit. Would have felt like a serious loser if I had.

    Yeah I mean Dynamis was Tuesday and Saturday when I was in my first shell. This was when I still lived up north. My friends knew Saturday was unavailable, but we could go out on Friday nights.

    Once I moved down here, I changed shells (a couple times, actually), but I had only one friend here at that point, who was someone I'd met in game. We were in the same shells so we basically rearranged our lives around the game.

    And then when I got into HNMs, well, I'm not ashamed to admit that I was fully addicted to the game at that point. If it was Nid, I was skipping class for A Body. That was more important to me back then. Obviously I've now gotten my priorities straight, but back then FFXI > all. I probably would have stolen money to keep my sub active if I had to.

    Like I said, I thought of a lot of the people I played XI with as really close friends -- closer friends in fact that the friends who I only saw when we were drinking on weekends. If I had plans with friends, I usually made sure not to cancel on them to play XI, but in the same vein, if I had plans with XI friends, I wouldn't cancel on them if someone called out of the blue and said they were going out drinking on a random night (especially since we drank a lot in college and it was likely we'd be doing the same thing very soon -- which makes my RL sound just like XI life..).

    It's been like five years, but I had a chance to catch up with some old LS friends in Destiny the other day and it was just like talking on vent way back when we all played XI.

    When I was in college, I left a 4th of July pool party midway through to come home for a Kirin run. I was up for W. Legs! My roommate came home about an hour later to ask me what the hell I was doing. I told him some half truth/half lie about how I had this planned event on the game with a lot of people and that I couldn't let them down.

    He then asked me if any of those people were gonna help me get my dick wet. He made a good point, so we went back to the pool party. Hooked up with some girl, she was probably a 4.5/10 if I'm being generous, but my LS went 0/5 on W. legs drops that day, so I think I came out better for it.

    Oh man, the day I got W.legs was hilarious. It was the day before I got put on probation in my LS at the time for probably being a whiny cunt. W.legs dropped and I bid all 259 points on it x.x and got it by a long shot. Proceeded to HQ them or else id face never ending torment...
