if SE pulled the plug on FFXIV (which I just don't see happening unless PS3 release bombs utterly) and they allowed me to pay for FFXI with crysta I would consider playing FFXI again... but it would be tough for me to decide to do so unless I could get my character back though. It is hard to imagine grinding myself up again - I have already had 3 characters on FFXI... the thought of doing all the beginning stuff again makes my stomach churn.

I might even just end up trying WoW again.... lol

There's plenty of room on Burning Legion and I got a guild for you too :) We'll carry you to the fun stuff!

Thanks! Well, I am pretty happy on FFXIV now but if things don't get better I may possibly take you up on that offer.

When it comes to sitting around not doing anything for long periods of time, only being active for short windows, and marginal changes and sidegrades I'd say FFXI players were the perfect choice for politicians.

I don't see myself playing any other MMO's. This one is tailored to fit my lifestyle right now, if it goes under (which I doubt seriously) then I probably won't be playing anything else.

Same here. This game supports my lifestyle atm, however I do hope the bugs/defects are worked out soon. At times, it seems like I am forcing myself to log in, instead of wanting to. I will keep optimistic though and hope SE can pull through for us. One simple change I would love to see is something I thought i'd probably never worry about, is an Auto attack feature. While this isn't something critical, having to press attack, attack, attack is one of those little annoyances that makes the game feel "corny" to me lol.


Fiddle Faddle!

I found that most of the time I am hitting abilities instead of just the attack. It be nice to have an auto attack that maybe doesn't generate TP so that you have to use certain ones to actually generate the TP itself.

As for me, well I gave up WoW. I do not feel like going back to Aion since my account was stolen after I canceled the game. FFXI takes too much time for me to get back into it. I tried earlier this year and just couldn't do it.

If FF14 fails, then I will just wait for Diablo 3 and GW 2 to come out. The only thing that will get me back to WoW is if I can get my characters back from my brother, who also quit.

If Final goes down i guess ill have to try one of the new mmos coming out like swtor/gw2/or tera but they all look like wow clones so will see how that goes. I think ff11 has run its course for me so no I would not go back to it !

I highly doubt they'll pull the plug on this game anytime soon. Look at it from a business standpoint, you already have a sunk cost developing the game. They are going to try and recoup their investment as long as possible. Even if the game isn't making a significant amount of money it will probably still be earning them a little cash.

Unfortunately until we get a quarterly earnings report from SE we won't know for certain. The only thing I can find was that they lowered their earnings forecast for the end of their fiscal year (ending Sept 30), but that's just a forecast. And while they lowered it they were still earning.

Link in case anyone is curious.
