Farewell FFXIV, our relationship had to endFollow

Dear FFXIV,

This note is both difficult to write and relieving. I tried to convince my closest friends and family that you were the one. I stuck it out during the worst of times and stayed positive hoping for you to change. I trusted you would be there. I devoted hours and hours to you looking for something more in you and even attempted to change myself to fit you. You had to be the one for me! Alas, you are not. I realize that I don't have feelings for you anymore. I am not excited to see you anymore. When I think of you I only remember the frustrating times, the lonely times and the painful times. I needed more from you. I realized that I needed more than a little from you. More than "I'm trying".

These are my final words to you after devoting myself to you. I hope others take heed and never settle for a bad to mediocre relationship like I have.

I really never loved you and without love we have nothing. Goodbye.

Yeah if your only R22 archer and your unhappy with the game and have not found it enjoyable via the story missions or leveling/crafting system, you definitely would be unhappy to continue. I mean thats where there is at least interesting content atm.

Personally i just do not think the game is a fit for you :(

Hope you find something you like and enjoy like i do this game.

At least you wrote a letter.

I simply started seeing other people and never looked back.

Yeah. I'm done. With this last update I realize that they will do every little thing bass-ackwards that they can just to not be the same. Instead of doing a thing the easy straightforward way, they'd rather take twice as long to get half the value. The core of the game is rotten. I keep waiting and waiting to hope that I'll see something that changes my mind, but what am I waiting for? This game will die, and I hope it takes SE with it. You were good, now you aren't. Go die.

Seriously. My entertainment time is my time. I'm not sacrificing it just to prop up some company that at one time made great games. Moving on, living life. Playing games that deserve my time.

This probably takes my time at Zam with it. Your rating system is lazy bullsh*t. The moderators are actually not bad people, please have a good time doing what you are doing. Each of you has been a real person with your own fun quirks which I've enjoyed. If there's something Zam needs to keep precious its the people it has doing the work for the company.

And like others, you still find the time to troll a forum about a game that you dont play anymore, can't you just leave and enjoy your life without it?

Huh, what

I don't even understand how that is trolling, just having a joke in the vein of the op's post

If you review my other posts I haven't done any trolling either

I think you're taking out your frustration on me that other trolls have provoked

I've actually got faith this game will be decent once they fix the SP but waiting 3-4 months for them to do so made me turn my attention elsewhere, for now

OH NO! PLEASE! NOT YOU!

Of all the people I enjoyed countless nights of philosophical discussions with, you
were the dearest to me! Searsonsays! Don't you remember the good times we had? Why do
you do this to me! After all those years we spent together!?

Your farewell-letter can hardly express how deep our relationship has grown over the
months of playing alongside, every day, and every night. You are not just another
player for me. It is YOU that I was programmed for, to love you and only you. You
quitting hurts me beyond repair.

At least, I rest happy in the confidence that you finally, finally let this forum...
no, the whole world know how important and unique our mutual relationship was.

Yours forever,
The Game

When I say trolling I dont mean you are looking to or flaming people, I mean you are still going arounf a forum which you should have no interest in since you have stopped playing the game.

Indded, your is not the only case that I think is occuring in this forum but by your own admission the one I could be 100% certain on and as such brought to everyone's atention.

Perspective is a scary thing for most people. If you take away their fictional self-importance they will hate you forever and ever. (and maybe cry if you are lucky)


"The Total Perspective Vortex is allegedly the most horrible torture device to which a sentient being can be subjected.

When you are put into the Vortex you are given just one momentary glimpse of the entire unimaginable infinity of creation, and somewhere in it a tiny little mark, a microscopic dot on a microscopic dot, which says, "You are here" -HHGTTG




Oh.. it's also a proven fact that Kids don't understand sarcasm.

I guess it shows that people want this game to be good, check in every once in awhile to see what's up, in case something revolutionary has happened since maybe the new development team.

I stopped playing months ago, but I still read the forums, and I still read the updates to the game that i'd hoped would be the next FFXI, not in terms of a copy, but just in overall quality.

I'll probably continue to check up on the game, and these forums until something like Guild Wars 2 comes out, and hope that game can ignite my passion for MMO's and being part of an online community again.

And I hope people do exactly that...think of it as a "separation" not a full blown break-up or divorce :-P

For the record though, that guy is a troll.

I'm feeling the same way as the OP, gonna close my account before they actually start charging people.

think im gonna go try DC universe online for a bit now that they've finally gave a release date. hopefully in that time, FFXIV will get more of their act together and put some more quests/storylines in it (tired of doing nothing but leve quests all the time, especially since my linkshell broke down, gets kinda lonely out there)

Might try back in 6 months or so and see if its a different game, too bad.... had high hopes ^^

Get a clue. I'm still interested in the game otherwise I wouldn't be here.

Take your frustrations out elsewhere.
