I still look back on my years playing FFXI fondly, usually whenever someone starts concern trolling about the deep, deep sadness they feel now that Blizzard's dev team has magically morphed into a bunch of vaguely-humanoid cackling money-counting machines, intent on churning out half-assed patches because they like the taste of gamer tears and want to spend more time kneeling before some wailing corporate demon who demands their creativity as a sacrifice. It's at that point that I want to scoop the person posting up, turn them into, say, a Tarutaru black mage or summoner, and insert them into one of three places in Vana'diel:1) Dragon's Aery, in an LS that's been camping Fafnir/Nidhogg for an hour already (and there's still at least three hours to go!);2) Sky, the endgame zone where nearly everything aggros magic, sound, sight, or all three, in an LS that's waiting on them to start Kirin and with exactly three 30,000 gil-per-stack sneak and invisible pots in their inventory;3) LFG for a merit/leveling party while they stand outside Aht Urghan and solo colibri and marids very...very...slowly.Even at their most clueless, I never thought the FFXI dev team didn't love their game.
