    XI Community Project: Celebration of FFXI's 15th anniversary, to be sent to the dev team

    Hello to the FFXI English community!

    So 2017 marks not just the 30th anniversary of the Final Fantasy series, but the 15th anniversary of Final Fantasy XI as well. That's right, FFXI has been around for half the time as of the entire series!

    In recognition and celebration of this momentous event, /r/ffxi would like to organize a community project as a thank you to the FFXI dev team and Square Enix as a whole. To participate, please fill out the Google Form below. You can also directly email us via the email address provided at the bottom of the form.

    Fill out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/hREV6TvyXPZkxdTg1

    We have a little under 2 months to gather your heartfelt messages and compile them into a format that we'll send over to the FFXI dev team. (The format we use will be announced at a later date when we review what kind of media ends up submitted to us by players)

    If FFXI has impacted you in any way in the past or present, please submit a personal message of yours via the above form. We recommend also including a screenshot or fanart of yours which you can email to us (see bottom of form).

    Thank you to the FFXI dev team for making a game that has impacted me so greatly over the last 15 years, and thank you to the players for making it such a brilliant community & supporting the game all these years allowing it to continue.

    In May we will be sending your compiled messages to our contact at Square Enix to present to the FFXI dev team.

    (As a note, you can edit your existing submission as well as submit multiple entries if needed.)

    From the number of rate downs in the Reddit thread. I assume the devs don't want me to thank them for making doing the dirty with FF players possible.

    I don't get why you get downvoted so much on that sub. Nothing you say is really downvote worthy from what I've seen the past few months. You just say it how it is.

    What Spira said below. I enjoy telling them like it is because honestly a lot of them just come off like a bunch of sensitive fucking nerds. Being a nerd myself and like many of you, I find their levels to be cringe worthy. Frankly I was trying to incite some lols on there, but at least there was one nugget of a response from it:

    Spoiler: show

    Sounds like a winner to me, but hey.

    Dude not for nothing but you're just as cringey when you tryhard on that subreddit. Even more so since you're doing it while thinking you're better than the others.

    Used to be a nice quiet sub but it's turned to shit in the past year. Mods gave up on having a megathread every other day so now the sub is filled with the same retard questions every single day.

    I barely visit the FFXI sub on Reddit, but I can say with confidence the Ryan deserves all the hate he earns everywhere.

    For instance, look at this thread. Spira wanted community assistance making a tribute to FFXI and now it has turned into a thread about how everyone hates Ryan. Plus one reason to hate Ryan.

    First sentence is true, overall. Second is not, I don't think I am better than other people.

    The mega thread is there everyday, not sure which megathread would prevent ignorance and laziness though.

    They are actually getting their assistance. In this case bad publicity is good publicity because it generates traffic to the submission link. Which apparently is generating a good amount of submissions according to an edit in the OP on Reddit. This thread is inconsequential as the OP is all that matters here. It isn't like the submissions are supposed to be in this thread.

    No one else needed a new reason though either. Pretty sure minds were made up

    lol if its a genuine response (like it put you through college) i'm quite sure we can still use parts of that somehow.

    the more we have to work with the better, i think.

    Oh it was genuine. I truly am grateful for that (along with the memories of course). But i don't think they would appreciate gratitude from someone who made more off their game than they did, sitting on a couch or asleep no less

    Guess i could whip something up about the memories...or leave out the RMT part

    Done!

    I mentioned how I initially couldn't stand FFXI as a result of some unrealistic expectations going into it, but was glad I gave it another chance later on as it allowed me to reconnect with an old friend and subsequently meet other great people.

    Without FFXI, we'd of never of got throw some ridills on some shit

    Send the link to the developers and never forget

    A Kraken Club paid for four nights and five days of partying in Las Vegas for me in 2009. That's probably my best memory.

    Some people thought I should show up to Guam early since great place to spend a vacation and maybe report into my boat early which was heading a great port. But I'm lazy and ffxi more important so F that. It got into a major crash a few days before I got to island. ffxi may have helped save me from serious harm/death

    Too bad we can't get those "I was playing FFXI instead of flying on September 11th" posts.
