    Also no idea what "site" he's talking about and if I've never heard of it it's likely peanuts.
    The story as I told it is that's because China banned a bunch of games, so the RMT farms have doubled up on FFXI, thus making supply vastly outpace demand. And I was told this by a guy who sells gil.

    Dunno who told you that but china generally operates off VPNs such as 8lag even when there are no bans in place. I don't know a single Chinese shop that doesn't bypass the GFW with a VPN.

    As I said before it takes literally no time to look at a site and see demand is down, feedback is publicly viewable and it's fallen off a cliff.

    You're arguing something you know nothing about

    All the Chinese RMT I know who aren't just middlemen are getting out of FFXI because the demand is too low.

    but yeah sure
    I dont know in what kind of dimension you lived back then, but you couldnt sit down for 2 hours on FFXI Classic and get any shit done besides crafting. FFS just gathering for LS events took at least 1 hour, and that was the fucking bare minimum.

    Remove those rose tinted glasses. FFXI Classic was a fucking horrible game when it came to traveling to event location, preparing for stuff etc. it was a nightmare and basicly a full time job. I enjoied it because i was young/naive and had the time. Today i wouldnt even look at such a game. I enjoied abyssea/post abyssea/adoulin FFXI way more.

    I also couldnt imagine to play FFXI anymore without any addons like gearswap chatmon etc etc. pre gearswap Job changing? Yeah fuck that 30 min+ at least ¬.¬

    More like their market is too crowded and they aren't needed since money isn't nearly as hard to make as it once was.
