I can't speak too much on WOW cause I've never played it. I'm a FFXI player so I can tell you anything you wanna know about it. The only thing I can think of that a lot of people don't like about FFXI is that you depend on parties too much to level up while WOW can be played solo (up to a point) Like I said that's the only issue I hear. But I'm gonna hav to vote for FFXI cause that's my curret MMORPG of choice.

So if I do buy it (which I probably will cos it's only 14.99 somehow) can you tell / show me what to do and all that newb bollox?

Tell ya what, Shao. If you get it I'll hook ya up. You'll have to sign up and start your character. But afterwards I'll have to send you a World Pass so you can come to my server and I'll show you the ropes :)

Yeah, it's like $12 month for the first character. $1 extra for additional characters.

I still play, admitted not as much as I used to. I just need more peeps to play with, get me interested in the game again. Plus my LinkShell just broke up so that really put a dent in my play time cause I used to be the Second head on that.

WOW is 15 but you dont have to pay more until you get 11 chars and you pay one more buck so i'd say cost wise both are pretty fair sounds like WOW's better.

and is this final fantasy?!??!?! never knew there was an MMORPG but i'm going for WOW

If you're anything like me you'll go on binges. I remember like two weeks after getting the game. I came home from work at like 7am Friday morning, and played that game nonstop till like 10pm Saturday night. I've never done that again since but it was still fun.

Well you run around. Kill baddies, level up, so you can go to exotic locations and ride big chickens.

Yeah I used to do that when I was in college but I don't do it as often now I'm work for a living and can't srounge off parents. But I will be if my laptop can support FFXI or WOW powered by the magical herb

i dont get the point, that game allready cost like 60$ and then u have to pay an extra 14$ a month, thats like 168$ every year, and u usally become addicted to those games so every month u keep payin and payin...

id rather play socom or something but what ever ppl can do what they want with theyre money...

Believe me, I used to think the same thing. That's why it took me a looooooong time to jump on the MMORPG wagon. And to an extent sometimes I still feel like it's not worth it but companies do it for a number of reasons.

1. Profit. It cost Squeenix about 22 million dollars to develop that game. And with the ammount of players that would be using the system at once they would have to set up servers for all that data to flow through which I'm sure costs a pretty penny each month. So in order for them to keep the game flowing smoothly they'd have to set up a pay system. Either that or litter the game with advertisements and pop-ups like we see so often on websites and that would take away from the whole adventure feel for me.

2. It's a service. Yeah, even though you do have to pay for the game, once you do, everything you do in the game is online. All your character data, items, and other shit is stored on the main servers. Which is a lifesaver, cause if I had to count all the times I had to re install the game on my PC and PS2 I'd never have made it to the level I am now. Plus you get your own e-mail address and whatnot so for $12 a month it ain't too bad.

i havent been playing wow at all the last couple weeks but over the summer me and my friend made accounts and would just get made baked and play that shit forever. Im 42 hes 41 in about 2-3 months, which is pretty good. Its a real fun game and its pretty solid. Im an old school eq guy so i know a good mmorpg and wow is a good one.

Personally I would go for WoW, because Blizzard has a good image of games that stay alive and get new stuff and good balancing. I never played either the MMO FF or WoW though. I did play Guild Wars if that counts.

yeah, was thinkin 512 but then that's only recommended so i'd rather get some more. Now i've just gotta get around the graphics problem. The photos looked alright when I installed it anyway so hopefully there won't be a problem

I picked FF because that what I use to play....

Yo bloo hook, you siad your linkshell broke up, what server were you on?

I use to be on their, my name was Ghostface, we had the Wu-Tang Clan Linkshell.

I got sat down by the Game Mods for "shouting obcenitys in a zone"

They took me to this magical room, where it was just four walls. They let me run around in it for a minute to realize I wasn't going anywhere unless they siad so.......fucking assholes.

Yes, them were the days. I'd get back on that game but I'd never accomplish nothing with my life if I did. Plus, I think they erase the characters...

I gave up after my charcter hit level........40 drg/20war/30mnk/10whm/10blm.....somthing like that can't remmember now.

I was a fucking hustler, I always had paper in that game. I figured out all kinds of scams to get money, and never had to up my skills one bit.....

Damn, all this talk got's me thinking about restarting my account.

I'm still on Cerberus. I was thinking about switching to a different server that was cheaper cause I've heard from a few that the prices of shit on that server are more expensive.

That would've been ill. I definately would've been a sack holder for that shit :)

Word? They do that shit? I've never had that happen to me :lmao: I'm thinking about testing that shit out now :)

Yeah, Right now I'm 31 Thief/16 Ninja/15 Warrior/12 Beastmaster. I still try to find motivation to keep on but I don't have any people to play with now so I get on maybe once a week now. And yeah, they do, if you cancel your acount then they delete your character if you don't re activate in 3 months.

You man, hip me to that shit cause I'm a Thief and I stay broke :) I've been trying to find a hustle in that game for years. If you still remember them let me know what's good.

Damn, all this talk got's me thinking about restarting my account.
If you do holla at me, I can shoot you a world pass and get you on my server with me. Don't worry about a new character, my GF is a Level 60 White Mage and can power level you back to where you were.
