    ...no they didn't. Every single one of my friends has rerolled to my server. Now, I have noticed that all subsequent characters are defaulted to the server your first character is on, but these people are creating their mains, not an extra character, thus, they are able to reroll until they get onto a specific server. Stop spreading lies. =/

      LMAO. XD I'm going to have to initiate a PayPal 'Get Aelice FFnline so she can oggle Elvaan bishies' fund!

      And thanks for the clarification, Michael. ^.^ I was getting hesitant about buying it rerolling another server with the main character wasn't possible.

        Okay, even the UO servers are still up, chief. That's over six years. EQ is going on five years now, stronger than ever. AC has been out about four. DAoC about four.

        Let me say this again: THE SERVERS ARE NOT GOING TO DISAPPEAR.

        Oh my god. The servers will be up for a long time to come. Not every MMORPG player, especially the Japanese, given the market for them over there, jumps from MMO to MMO, I know plenty of EQ players who have been playing since release, and don't plan on playing any of the new MMORPGs coming out, because EQ is what they know and love. Same in all the other games I've played. So long as there's a decent enough market, the servers are going to stay up. And that market base is NOT going to disappear in a mere four years from now.
        i just picked a random number. but my point is the servers wont be up forever. there will be a time where you cant play ffxi anymore. i could go play an atari game right now and have no problems and those are over 20 years old. could you play FFXI in 20 years?

        and 5 years of $13 a month is quite a bit of money.

          Pick realistic numbers then. 20 years is a realistic number. 10 years is a realisitc number, but considering there are MMORPGs still running beyond the five year mark, it's not nearly a long shot.

          And you know what? I don't care if $13 over five years is a lot of money. That money not only makes sure the servers stay up as long as possible, and also funds development of subsequent games for when the current one dies out, as well as the servers to run them. Sorry, there's nothing that will make me addopt this idea that paying for a game is a bad completely incomprehensible and shameful act. It's an ignorant point of view. You go on and keep playing your Diablo 2 and your FPS games for free. You have fun with your games that have official updates two or three times then are completely forgotten by the devolopment companies. You have fun with your online games with terrible online services with zero active enforcement of cheats and hacks. You have fun in your games playing with all the 1337 kiddies who can't formulate a single coherant statement with their character name of "super_wet_girl--" who obviously are always the better player than you, because you aren't using a cookie cutter character progression, because you feel like being something different from the rest of the powergaemrs, you "fscking n00b!" (in the words of the players you'll much more frequently run into)

            You should play on my server, because I'm awesome, or something. Even though someone apparently doesn't want me getting to 30. Well, should be easier since the power gaming white/red mages are catching up, given I made 27 in the middle of the week, and there was kinda this large gap between us. I could probably group in Batallia Downs much more easily now, even though I did the Kazham quest for supah xp. Meh, Kazham is so worth it, but only if you can get a group, and it seems most of the japanese players organise a party before they even get there, so pick up groups are very hard to find, boo~

            I'm in two LSs, one is my hardcore level/raid LS, and the other being a bunch of friends. Since they're friends, they don't care I'm in the hardcore one doing my thing. Anyway, I'm sure we could find some room for you in Discord if you enjoy the game.

            There're some new screens up, by the way~

                  Holy ****!! That is way too expensive. I wonder how much World of WarCarft will cost compared to this. ( Also a MMORPG)

                    Don't talk about something you don't understand you "fscking" noob. Just cause you're a ****ing rich boy doesn't mean everyone is. And you can get good service online in Warcraft 3 in Battlenet and guess what? It's free. And in games like Diablo and Warcraft 3. you don't have the time to ****ing spellcheck every word. Typos happen and only total shitheads complain about it. And who the **** ever uses 1337 language online? I haven't seen it being used once, except for elitist bastards who make fun of noobs and think that they all use 1337 language. And who can't spell? "powergaemr"

                          I don't know...

                          It MIGHT run on the lowest settings.

                          I suggest you go and get the benchmark utility for FFXI and try it out.

                              I think you just proved his point. We'll both be glad not seeing you on the plains!

                              Don't be bitter because we have grown up and no longer rely on our parents money. You have to be 18 to sign up for the account anyway. That or have a willing parent/guardian. This game is obviously not meant for people who still collect $3 in their piggy bank every Saturday.

                              If I'm wrong and you happen to be over 18 and supporting yourself, it's too bad that you can't afford $12 a month, which is less than a carry-out pizza. Playing games is a privilege, not a right.

                              World of Warcraft will also be $10 or more. Every MMORPG costs about that much.

                                You didn't understand my post AT ALL. The whole end of the post was satire.

                                you don't have the time to ****ing spellcheck every word.
                                Nope, and "gaem" is a common typo. See, I enjoy mocking terrible typing skills and overly common typos. It's the same idea of how such terms as 'pwned' got popular. I frequently use 'teh,' 'si,' 'gaem,' 'powar,' 'etf,' and the like, especially in jest.

                                Now, because it's obviously beyond you, my use of 'fscking n00b' wasn't me calling you a noob. It's me mocking the fact that you have infinititely more uberleethardcorepowergaming elitists in free online games who think if you aren't as specific character build, or you don't play the game a specific way, you are gimp, a "fscking noob," and you can't hang with them. Notice there was no ending of a sentence there. Notice how I was carrying on the same idea. Notice how I was speaking specifically of Diablo 2. Notice that it all flows together to make the point I just explained. Notice I specifically noted that I was speaking as if I were such a character.

                                I've played Diablo, StarCraft, and Diablo 2 all for a long time over battle.net. I know what I'm talking about, and I'm going to mock it. Sorry, there's no way you can convince me that battle.net servers are just as good as any MMORPG's servers are. Why? Because I'm paying for them. I'm paying to make sure dumbasses don't name their character "super_wet_girl" and get away with it. And beyond that, the fact that you must to pay for the game weeds out majority of the immature children out there, because unless they can get mommy or daddy to pay for them, they aren't going to be playing. This is a major plus.

                                Sure there are still powergaming supah elitists on MMORPGs, and there are still immature children, and people who need to be drug out into the streets and shot, and complete idiots, but we have a significant number less than free games. It's sort of like college. Since you're paying for college, you tend to straighten up, or get the **** out. That or you slack and go to cheap schools just to get something accomplished.
