Tell us your obsession with FFXIV: ARR. What are you doing, how does it make you feel, what are you doing to satisfy your urge?

Me, I am checking sties multiple times a day in hopes that new information is released. I'm checking HERE to see if pictures will be added. I also look at the box are and marvel at its awesomeness. I come to zam.com every time I open the internet browser just because its has to do with FFXIV: ARR. I can't stop thinking about how much fun I'm going to have. I haven't been this excited for a game since my dad said he was going to pick up a Sega Genesis, when I was what, seven?

I'm coping by creatign an OCD like rhythm of checking websites and reading the same information over and over. I also create threads like this to make sure I'm not the only one. I guess once Phase 3 hits things will change but between phase 3 and 4 I will fall off the wagon again.

Anyone else going crazy like me?

I'm right there with you. I'm constantly looking for new info, pictures, and video. I just had surgery 2 days ago, and not only does the pain medicine they gave me keep the pain bearable, it knocks me out. So I'm looking at my pain medicine as helping me skip forward in time to get to ARR sooner. Don't tell my girlfriend I think like this. She already thinks I'm crazy enough because it's all I really talk about. I don't think she really understands what is about to happen when ARR comes out. She wasn't around when I played XI.

I'm planning world (server) domination with the economy. Doesn't mean I'm obsessed. Nope. Not at all.

I keep checking sites too, and all the new threads for any little snippit.

I read the book Ready Player One and it just brought back ALL the decades and the games I played. The most
fun I had was FFII. I long for the hours and hours of fun times again. All the massive deaths were very funny, most times.

What other site's are you all using, I lurk here and on LS webpage and sometimes look at the squeenix page but thats about it. You all have any recommendations?

Spend a lot of timing forum lurking as well... hoping for just a scrap of new information.

I watch XIV vids every night before I go to sleep. I've seen both Tour of Eorzea videos probably over 30 times each, and I've analyzed like every frame.

This. Smiley: nod

I'm also messaging old 1.0/FFXI friends on facebook to see if they are playing, and if not, convincing them as to why they should at least give it a shot. Aside from that, I'm playing tons of games on PS3 to pass the time, though nothing is really holding my interest that long...

I'm constantly checking forums, and have watched every video I can find. I even stalk the forums at work,( shhhhhhhh ... Don't tell.) I pray, I won't break my computer running the benchmark over and over, just to make sure my rating don't change. Obsessed? Never! ;)

I'd love to get in on that XD. I have a feeling I'll do fairly well in my ventures, having played FFXI so long and then crafting around new expansions in WoW.

I used to be like most of you, checking all kinds of sources and constantly updating YouTube to watch NDA breaking videos, but then I took a lack of beta access to the knee (I'm playing Skyrim right now, sue me). I used to check my email 5+ times a day hoping for my golden ticket and I was notoriously bad about checking it before. Now I'm just playing various games and trying to avoid worrying about it until I get beta access. I'd love to pre-order the game but I'm holding off until I actually get to play it first.

Very much excited as well for the release!
Checking a couple sites each day for info I know probably wont be there yet lol but thats ok!

Planning what to work on first/finish off from my first character and making plans to start a new alt .
Its difficult to wait though, doing a bit of ff11 just as a fill in.

Goiong to have 2 accounts this time so making prep for that too. All of this isnt very distracting though seems like forever lol

I've been refreshing this place multiple times a day, and today I even created a couple of my very own threads for the first time! We should discuss certain tiny details while waiting for the magic from E3 (and Phase 3 shortly after) =)

Checking sites multiple times per day, staying busy with work, painting to let out my frustration, and thinking of what my character will be like at 50.. Oh and spending plenty of quality time with my wife and dog since they won't be seeing much of me for a while post launch Smiley: lol.

I've taken up Roleplaying and Veganism. . . The later is more related to my dating life since I'm really interested in someone else that's also a vegan, but I'd like to think that a Realm Reborn has miraculously convinced me to be more compassionate and healthier so that I can channel my anger to conflicts in game >.>

Please don't sacrifice your own values in order to impress others. You'll come to find that it'll cheapen your interpersonal relationships.

I'm refreshing Zam a lot on my phone while watching a lot of TV. I have a few games lined up from gamefly but I can't seem to find anything that I can play for more than a day or two. The last one was RE Revelations. I figure if FF XIV is any good it may be the last game I ever play when you look at where gaming seems to be going.

It was more meant as a jest, meant to be taken lightly~ However, while we're on the subject, I don't think of it as sacrificing my values. What I learn from my youth doesn't necessarily mean I should strictly follow it through adulthood because I'm always learning and my perspective will always shift and change. While yes, I am indeed interested in someone that leads a different lifestyle from me, there's nothing wrong with trying out something else to express an interest in how another lives.

During a nap yesterday I had a dream the game started, and I quickly found myself in a party in Mor Dhona, duo'ing with a stranger, trying to avoid Dodore and his minions because there were just two of us. Only thing I really remember was using abilities that don't exist any more and figuring they were doing well enough to keep going instead of stopping to reset them to ones that are actually in the game now.

Made sense at the time. ***** it, that ability did 800. Stick to the old ones.

I haven't been TOO obsessive about this lately. I know E3 is coming in 2 days and I expect (please don't let me down) that it will be a wealth of information about ARR as well as FFXV (versus?)and/or FFXIII- Versus. This seems like the longest time since a good bit of information has been let out. I'm sure they'll deliver at E3. They have to....

Smiley: eek ...I salute you.

ot: Pretty much the same as everybody else. I pretty much check ffxiv main page, lodestone, zam, beta forums, and then fb in that order.. Sometimes reddit. Also keep watching this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDMM-sksYhM over and over. Been talking to my old ffxi friends and we keep thinking of ways we will hit the ground running come launch also been actively recruiting ppl from work who want to give this game a try who have never played FF before. However, since I cant actualy play the game I have been re-working my way through FF7,8,9,xenogears,chrono cross.. That and watching all my shows like Dexter, game of thrones etc etc
