So, for reasons that I wont go into, I've decided to cancel my FFXIV account before I have to start paying. My intention is to take a break for 6 months by which time SE may have fixed the major issues, added more content and everyone will generally be much happier about things; at least that's what I would like to think.
In the meantime I'm left wondering, what to do with my shiny new rig and my rekindled lust for all things MMO. I've been spending 100% of my time IRL since I quit FFXI 2 years ago and would like to try some of the MMO's I've missed out on before (maybe) going back to FFXIV.
My question is, does anyone have any suggestions? I've played WoW before, but didn't really get into it. I also tried LOTRO a few years back, but didn't really get into that either as it felt a bit too much like WoW to me although, admittedly, I didn't spend long playing it. I was thinking about trying EVE as I'd like to try something a bit different to all the 'WoW clones' out there. Having said that, I don't want anything that's different in the way that FFXIV has turned out to be 'different'.
It's just occurred to me that I find myself in a situation that's a little like being dumped my first girlfriend and immediately going on the rebound looking for a replacement. Or perhaps, instead of being dumped, I suddenly realised my girlfriend was really pretty, but incredibly stupid.
