I applaud you for this. I hope everyone keeps FFXI as close to their heart as I do. I'm excited to play FFXIV but when I spend 7 years experiencing stories, adventures, journies, when I spend 7 years building relationships, climbing the tallest mountains and relaxing in the most beautiful plateaus it's hard for me to just up and forget it all because the developers, because the community, or because god himself tells me to. I love Vana Diel, no matter how much Square Enix may butcher it and will forever call it my truest home. FFXIV will never take that title away.
Long Live Vana Diel.
