    FFXI Thinning Out?

    Maybe it's just me and my observations from my server and group of friends, but I've noticed that a large amount of people have started drifting away from the game.

    Not to turn this into another "WotG Sucks" topic, but I think it's fair to say that a lot of people were let down by it.

    Is this a general trend?

    Does everyone notice less activity/interest in FFXI now adays, and if so what would you attribute it to?

    I love WotG, gives me something to do without having to rely on 5 other people, for a change. But can still team up with friends, so, win-win for me.

    Re: FFXI Thinning Out?

    I've noticed this and had I not server switched to an HNM shell I too probably wouldn't be playing now, my reason for it is that the game had become stale for me, no way to progress (in my mind at least) without doing HNM etc and also that the new items that are added aren't better than things that were added with the Zilart expansion, SE are so worried about MUDflation that they daren't add new truely great gear, the salvage sets are good but I think its too little too late now.

    The game is stale gear-wise and we're still driven by before-Zilart and after-Zilart, I never cared because I'm not driven over how much I have (all 0's and 1's in the end).

    It all depends on what you're after.

    Re: FFXI Thinning Out?

    No shit ffxi is dying. However, as long as there is some sad player who is truly distressed by a game they have already put years of life into possibly ending, there will always be people on this forum to call you a faggot for mentioning it. Cheers.

    P.S. to the all the posts people saying content isnt important, everyone doesnt enjoy paying 12.95 a month to cyber manthras.

    All MMOs die, hasn't FFXI been steadily losing players for about 2 years now (excluding small jumps because of patches, expansion, etc)?

    I think they're down to about 500k active subscribers, last count?

    I would attribute this to the fact that people are running out of things to do that aren't repetative.

    That was during CoP when they had 500k active wasn't it? I remember them posting how they're having a world shift due to the abundance of people.

    Re: FFXI Thinning Out?

    can you simplify your statement? i think we need a new advanced-advanced section because this is clearly even too advanced for -- yeah, no.

    also um... i dont find ffxi to be dying, i still see tons of hardcore people, and also casual retards who play this like it's super adventure island and they think they can press pause while they suck in my xp pt

    and personally, i cant seem to find enough time to do all the stuff i want to do, im still not captain rank, i havent even done campaign once and im still like 125 levels from maats cap (and have zero completed salvage pieces) damn you F/T job heh

    Re: FFXI Thinning Out?

    I don't necessarily think it's dying yet, but it is on a slow, downwards slope. I don't see it as being a problem, though, and I'm not too concerned. There are still stuff I want to do ingame that I have time to do, and when it eventually is over, I'll find a new pasttime. I have plenty of other ways to stay in touch with the friends I've made ingame. :D

    Well now there's a Fafnir drama thread, an RMT armchair economics thread, and an FFXI is dying thread on page one. I wasn't even aware BG had it's own Cavernous Maw, let alone that I'd gone through it.

    I'd take a small community of mostly decent people than 9M players with most of them being fucking jerks.

    Yeah how about that, an online game with 18x the playerbase has a greater abundance of assholes.

    At least I can fight the equivalent of Fafnir every day with my guild, kill it, and watch it drop at least 3 things people can use.
