I had played Final Fantasy XI off and on for about two years. I did enjoy the game very much during that time period. I can remember late nights when I would stay up and do group quests and level up my abilities. The last few months or so the game became quite boring. It was not because there was nothing for me to do in the game, the problem was that at my current level all the things I could do required to be done in groups. This turned out to be a real drag. I could rarely find a group at all! There are many times that I sat around crafting stuff to kill time and was never able to find a group. Because of my schedule I only had about a couple of hours to play...at most a day. There are times I would be looking for a group an hour or more. That does not leave much time to do anything once the group was formed. I had been waiting to get my airship pass for about 6 or so months cause I could not find people to help.
I transferred to different servers a few times but each server had the same problems. When it costs $25 to switch servers...well it was not wise for me to keep doing that. I played for about two years and I was only at a level 38. I know that I played off and on but that is really low for the amount of time. The game is pretty awesome but it was setup to depend way to much on groups....and that can be fun but it can suck.....A LOT!
I have only been playing Wow for about two months now. I remember I tried the demo of it but I found that the male characters were rather unattractive and that was a turn off. The FF characters are so attractive that I got so used to looking at pretty things. Even so I decided to play Wow anyway. I found that some of the male characters are really kind of hot. The Blood Elf's most of all. That is why I made Sentury into a Blood Elf. I also have a Draenei character (drawings of him coming soon).
So far I am liking the game. I do enjoy the fact that characters can actually fight each other. Being able to solo more is defiantly a plus for me. I am excited to get further in the game and see what exciting things it has to offer. Hopefully it will turn out better then FFXI did.
