I've played FFXI since 04. Been on there for the most part with a few 1-2 month breaks now and then. I play now and then anymore. I've pretty much given up on it once they did the 95-99 cap update. Plus the fact that I couldn't get any help to break the level cap didn't help.
VW, Abyssa burnt me out. Got tired of grinding it over and over. Then my LS just stopped doing anything and everything altogether. So now I'm pretty much solo on there without anything to really do excpt for exp/seal grinding. Makes for a boring time. (I hate Cerberus server.) If I didn't have to pay to change servers I would. Might make me want to play again more often too.
