    There is some debate, but it seems mostly for POS hacking and afk botting. I personally had a friend get hit for afk botting. I wouldn't doubt it is still in effect. Risk people decide to take or not.

    I'll trade you a hard reset to all character data to pre-Abyssea, but they can implement ilevels and stuff to have vertical progression... using all the BIS gear from pre-Abyssea as the base pieces for upgrading gear ilevels.

    I know why I quit during 75 cap. And believe retail to be a vastly superior game to 75 cap.

    Because you alienated yourself with an annoying, yet incorrect, sense of elitism that no linkshell wanted to associate with?

    Yeah you said this:

    And then never responded when I said this:

    Given that, World Spawns were exciting in a way that instances (Salvage, Dynamis, Limbus) and pop item farming (Sky, Sea) were not. Because it was competitive and there was at least SOME thrill in the claiming portion and in the progression of your Linkshell.

    In addition to my argument that artificial server-locked zero-sum rarity is good. And that progression, at least at the highest levels, should not be a given for every player in virtue of simply playing and paying a sub fee.

    I did respond to that. I said that was a fucking stupid mentality and what caused people to quit the game to begin with. ToAU made leveling and merits easier, so even casuals hit 75. And then they saw what that endgame was liked, and they left because of it. WotG offered nothing, so didn't retain any carrot on the stick for most people. But you're so blinded by your love of feeling superior to others at 75 cap you think Abyssea was the issue, which is years later than what happened. Abyssea was a goodbye to FFXI because it had already died, so your entire mindset here is not based on reality.

    Welp, looks like the FFXI classic dream is officially dead. Source is a recent interview.



    Was hoping WoW classic might give us a shot but....
