A sad time

Well as you can see, I didn't really make it back. A few things contributed to this. The first of course was discovering EvE online. The game has it's faults but it's strengths are beating FFXI into the ground for me.
Basically the single server (45000 people on an average Sunday), much better crafting (well industrial) system, Integrated voice chat, No inventory limitations, more robust economy etc.. finally won out. That and I ended up in a leadership position of an entire alliance in EvE. This seriously cut into my available time for any other MMO. I'm afraid that I just don't have time for FFXI any more. Sad in a way, I never made it to 75. Came damn close but the grind of getting supporting sub-jobs up to 37 killed me in the end. I'll probably make one last appearance and turn off the account.
This will probably be my last post in Strangeone's Remoran life. I'll be retiring him and his account tonight. I'll probably give away all my gil to one of my acquaintances who's still playing.

This is Strangeone bidding you all farewell and thanks for the memories.
