I just found out that a new MMORPG is supposed to come out this year: final fantasy XIV. I liked FFXI, and Seth, Pliny’s old friend and our host in Seattle (Redmond) this week, told me they fixed many of the problems: now it has solo play, level matching capabilities (totally absent in WoW, present in CoH), and more instance options. I want to play it. But, I also want to make sure as many friends of mine as possible are on the same damn server. Pliny has said he wants to try playing it casually. I fear for his tenure under these circumstances, but understand.
So, who out there would be likely to try Final Fantasy XIV, and interested in being on the same server as me? =)
