So last summer i gave in and decided to play ffxiv. I was surprised at how much i enjoyed the game specially after hearing so many bad reviews. Unfortunately, the only computer i had that was good enough to run the game broke down near the end of august/early September. Now that i finally have a new computer im deciding weather i should start playing again or not. Its been a few months since i read anything final fantasy related so i have no idea how this game is doing. i have a few questions though.
1. Are there any big changes that have happened since the last time i played? i All i remember was that a patch was about to be released.
2. Since they started charging for the game, how many players decided to leave? I played on selbina. Is it still populated?
3. I heard of the server merges. If i dont play before they happen, will i still be able to choose my server when i come back or will i be places in a random one?
4. and lastly, the LS that i used to be in broke up and many of my friends left the game, would anyone be willing to help a lonely new comer find some friends? =)
