Anyone play FFXI?

Hey, just curious if anyone on these boards played FFXI, and if so, which server they were on?
I'm on Seraph, for the record.

normally i'm a fan of final fantasy but i played XI for a couple of months and found it to be a soul crushing grind with npcs who want to put you in a labor camp to get the gil required for basic items. i would suggest you stop playing as soon as possible lol.

I had the same experience. I played for about 9 months following its NA release. The grind eventually destroyed my love for the game merely because to do the simplest of tasks required an insane amount of time investment. It feels like I'm being punished to play a game I pay for to enjoy. I quit the day I said to my self "Oh God. I've got to go home and play XI." I realized at that point it was more work than play, and that I didn't enjoy it at all. I actually tried to play it again a few months ago after I became a bit nostalgic, but I just couldn't get into it in the slightest and cancelled after my trial.
