Quite enjoying my time in the game so far. :D Have met loads of old friends, have spotted even more have logged in at some point, too. Can't wait to catch up with some more, and I know that there are those who are intending on joining up with the Fat Chocobos sooner or later. Still sending out scouts to find out what is holding them up. ;)
This Free Company business is certainly an interesting one. I've already noticed some Free Companies splintering up into smaller ones and so forth. Rules for Company Chests, attempting to get everyone to agree on an abbreviation and creating a crest, all this malarky is certainly new for a simple bloke like me but I'm enjoying the challenge all the same. Luckily our rag-tag group of adventurers is such a bloody amazing group of fun people or it'd be the death of me. Still... can't deny the thrill of watching that little rank thing go up slowly ;) C'mon, Rank Four, I want the Fat Chocobos crest on all my gear! :D
A big thanks to everyone who has helped out! Seriously, it's the people that have kept me in this game just as much (if not more so) than the game itself.
The downtimes are a pain, but I'm mostly glad they're working on the problems. I'd rather they do something than do nothing and, as I work in IT, I can understand that the first action isn't always the one that will fix it all. Still, I can't help but wonder what they're up to over there! One datacenter is working like a charm, the other keeps falling over. Surely there is some kind of solution to all this... hopefully they find it sooner rather than later! Luckily this is a newborn MMO and these issues will undboutedly be resolved over time.
What's a few hours of downtime in a few years of MMO playing? Nothin', I tells ya. Just an opportunity to write a journal entry on Lodestone. :D
Here here! I for one am also looking forward to this Free Company business, although I suspect it's a little ways away before I'll be helping to found one. And the people definitely make the game. Looking forward to plenty of laughs and adventures with you all!
