I haven't seen alla in ages. I left FFXI a while ago in an attempt to preserve my fond memories of my 6ish years in that game. I'm seriously getting the FF krak shakes and am hoping for a beta invite, because if something doesn't happen soon I'm gonna snap and reactivate my FFXI account just to get a fix.

I was saddened to see my old Fairy server is now dead and gone. :(

I'm excited for FFXIV though and am happy to be back at alla... God help me I don't become an addict again.

BWahahahhaaa!!!

You will be just as addicted as the rest of us. SE has managed to invent electronic Crack with a little bit of Internet Meth mixed in. We are but mere mortals, powerless to hold the addictive forces of SE at bay.

If you can believe, I actually went and download Vanguard off my steam account and have been playing this week, because as you say, I was cracking-out waiting for FFxiv.

Welcome back!

I downloaded WoW for the same reasons(I'll say no more about that experience)
I've played just about every free trial on the market while twitching and foaming for XIV.

Just the fact that you've returned means that you will be addicted again. Don't fight it, embrace it. Become one with it, like the sad many of us here already have.

I'm in the same situation as you are now, left FFXI long time ago and left all MMO's for about a year now, I downloaded FFXI again on my PC end every day (and I mean it every day) I get to the point of reactivating my account and stop when I think of all the things I have to do again.

Right now it's so bad that the only thing holding me back from doing it right this second is I can't recall my pol ID and SE support can't seem to find it based on the info I gave them. I know I have it stashed somewhere in the house.

I swore I would never again reopen the account. Who was I kidding? I need a fix. It's been about two years I think.

Sadly I know what the outcome will be. It won't be the same as it once was. So I don't know why I'm torturing myself.

One the one hand I am glad I deactivated my account about a year ago. It's let me clear out a big back log of other PC games I've been meaning to play.

But at the same time, I haven't felt the same playing those games as I did playing FFXI. There's something oddly therapeutic about making sure your 7 AH slots are filled and watching the Whitegate chat logs.

Somewhere in the process of my account being inactive in the past 3 years it was also hijacked. I tried multiple times to get my account back but SE won't budge :-\ Have to get some notarized paper and jump through hoops.
