    The only ban I ever felt bad about was me being banned from the official forums. I still felt it was a bogus ass excuse and I could have fought it but I decided I didn't like it there enough to make the effort.

    About Sandworm & Dark Ixion: I was the person responsible for getting the god damn GMs to change their policy about non-interference. When our shell was camping Sandworm, I got claim on PLD and just did melee hits on while holding it waiting for the rest of my linkshell to show up. During the fight, a GM showed up and spoke in our party chat which obviously surprised me they could do that and told me that I had to damage the mob or I would be fucking jailed.

    I told the GM to fucking look at me hitting it & explained to him that this mob had a damn rage timer with which he told me to hurry up and damage it. Thankfully the rest of my Linkshell arrived and we finished it up. I was pretty fucking pissed about that whole exchange so I contacted a GM and got the same one who spoke to me before and explained to him that he needed to understand what a rage timer was and why he shouldn't have interfered.

    He was pretty dismissive or just plain didn't give a shit so I asked to speak to an SGM and finally got one. I explained to him what happened and why this other GM should have just minded his own god damn business. The SGM said he'd look into it and I thanked him and left it at that. About two weeks later there was an update note stating that along with Kings, Khim, etc that Sandworm and Dark Ixion were now on the list of mobs that GMs would not interfere with.

    Good times.

    My LS leaders back in the day stole the LS bank and RMT their characters and at the time I felt really hurt by it but looking back I was just being dumb because they really needed the money for irl shit and at the end of the day it’s all just pixels on a server. Later ffxi would go easy mode and they remade characters again and got decked out in the coolest shit in like 1/256th the time it used to take and I then felt really silly for any bad feelings I harbored over their actions years prior.

    There were some strange times where GMs would interfere with whatever they felt like. I remember a Cerberus where we held it with a small party while everyone showed up and a GM started talking in our party chat as well. We were told we had 5 minutes to get it down to a certain percent. About 15 minutes later it was at 50% and then all the PLD, WHM and RDM were transported to Mordion Goal and the rest of the ally was left to wipe. The LS that called the GM on us was able to scoop up a Cerberus at 50%. I was mad at the time but damn did we laugh our asses off looking back at that situation just absolutely bewildered at how poorly it was handled. Like what in the world was that guy doing lol?

    Dillinja on Shiva was always my favorite example of a failure of an LS leader on ffxi. Preached anti bot and anti rmt for years, bot list came out and surprise surprise he was on it. Year or two later he sold his account, stole his LS bank, and then bragged in ventrillo a year after the sale about recalling it. I can understand being against RMT but selling your account and then recalling it is literal theft.

    Think he still posts here sometimes. It's surprising people from those days with such a holier than thou attitude still have the audacity to not just disappear into obscurity

    What a coincidence that the Stanislav thread was necroed recently with the current talk of botting and ls leaders stealing shit. That thread is really a time capsule for 75 cap XI.

    I'm glad I'm not the only son of a bitch who had to deal with dumbfuck GMs...

    Also about that Stanisslav thread. Didn't he just dump doing anything else with Guildwork anymore?

    SMH at all the disrespect for the purity of the game.

    This is no different than the poor person who steals to feed their family. You can have sympathy for their plight without approving of them screwing other people over. Most people would be moved to have more compassion if they stole from say, Wal-Mart, over the Mom & Pop bakery they work at, but stealing from your members is clearly more akin to the latter. People put in their collective time and effort because there is supposed to be a shared reward.

    When SE ruined the game with Abyssea it may have made the impact of their theft non-unique, but it doesn't make it okay. That's like saying murdering a man is fine if you know for a fact that he and the rest of his family is going to die in a gas explosion at their house later that night.

    That's also because most BiS items are not crafted, but are rare/ex drops. Back in the day things like cursed-1 gear, juggernaut, KC, scorp harness, sniper rings were veritable gold mines. There are still really potent crafted items out there but like nothing that's gonna make a huge difference. Abyssea/Voidwatch/Neo Nyzul era really obliterated the market for crafters because literally all the BiS gear was rare/ex. You can't do as much with gil now as you could back then, when very few weapons could compare to a R/E/M, but now a days theres a bunch of weapons that are equal or better than ultimate weapons that don't require fucktons of gil.

    Nah that's not it. Su5 su3 and jse necks plus a plethora of other stuff. Demand is dying because the game is. Ffxiah db down to 81562. 10k or 11% drop in 2 weeks.

    A major part of why it all stopped was because GM's were being called literally every time a LS claimed... anything. I know basically every HNMLS on Seraph would immediately submit a GM ticket as soon as DI, SW, Khim, Cerb, Tia, etc. etc. etc spawned just to begin a holding complaint as soon as possible to get that clock ticking while the rest of their linkshell gathered.

    It is pathetically warped with how you carry on like this. How many times is this now?

    Let us know when you have a complete graph of data for AH's recorded transactions. On all servers weekly in a few years from now. Maybe it might actually have the faintest importance then.
    Rather than simply being your slowly crawling and obviously inevitable, yet disgustingly pitiful revenge nerd porn.

    can you add to the conversation spicyryan instead of attacking people and not their ideas?

    please try to adhere to BGs policies.

    thanks my dude

    I'll add to it. Quit being ridiculous about subs from ffxiah.com. You come off as a headcase with issues regarding a video game. And please do not stop it for us, stop it for your own mental health. It would not be surprising at all if you have some deep seeded issues.

    If you're able to remove your emotions from me calling the dying game you like garbage, you'll see that there's nothing objectively wrong with what I'm saying. I also did not bring up ffxiah database numbers initially, but I gladly continued to bring them up as they are largely skewed up the login campaigns. I do like the fact that checking them for all of 5 seconds of my day every 3 or 4 days is seen as something requiring mental attention tho.

    I'd say the extreme desire to White Knight SE and ffxi is more worrying than anything I've posted. The game literally does not have a full time employee and y'all sit here praising it as being gods second coming when it has less people playing it than a middle school dance on a weekday.

    Nah you're obsession with XI's population is pretty nutty, and the r/Imverysmart talk doesn't help your case.

    Could have just ignored the post and continued with the one fun discussion this thread has brought forth, but no, you just had to take the bait, Jesus Christ.

    All you try to do is deflect detractions.
    Since when are your blue balls for the game to end by stalking and regularly repeating AH transactions declining adding to the thread?

    We know you don't like it. The thread has been heavily litered by you making it known. When we actually went over your gripes number by number they didn't hold much water. There too did you just stick your head in the sand as well.
    Then here you are back to it.

    If you attack people or aren't 'adding to the thread', it is fine. Yet, when someone else is on your level, you want to act like a big pussy. You've hid behind wildly attempting to discredit individuals with dissenting views, 'BG policies', personal nonsense, deciding relevance, hypocrisy, etc. I'd hope anyone sees through these desperate ploys, especially when you try to invoke adminstration as a tool.
    It all adds up to deflection, plain and simple, because seemingly you are rubbed so emotionally raw. That having your own opinion about a subjective point on a timeline of a video game just isn't good enough.
    You repeat these cycles through the thread reliably.

    The issue is you aren't talented enough to convey your angst about "classic XI" into some compelling argument. As you just flaunt some rather lofty levels of arrogance, tantamount to nothing more than your flimsy feelings.
    We can try this again if you want. Number by number again, to keep it simple for you.
    Just don't use actual numbers. Since aside from repeating AH transactions. Everytime you have in this thread, they have just been made up.
