Final Fantasy XIV Extra-Lifers!

Recommended Posts

Any Extra-Lifers out there play Final Fantasy XIV Online: Heavensward? Which server you do you play on? The last two years I've streamed FFXIV for the 24-marathon. Would be awesome to hook up with other players!

There is already a thread dedicated to FFXIV. This post mentions where the extra lifers gather. Hope that helps! :)

I played for about three years. But constantly quit , as the community there is terrible people. I've filed over a hundred complaints of harassment. Don't know anyone that plays anything of mine, so I'm mostly solo all the time, on any game PC. Was on Gilgamesh and now Balmung.

I'm kind of in the same boat, @Dj-Sparky . I enjoyed the game's storyline, but the community is horrible. I ran two Roleplay guilds on Lamia, and both of them ended up imploding due to people being petty and causing RL issues.

 

I went back to Final Fantasy XI, and am a lot happier.

I played XI for maybe two weeks, with my best friend. Got fed up with it. We had to get an escort to the next Quest Hub, and then left to fend for ourselves. We found out that groups are heavily needed for basic quests, After awhile of looking for a group, we found that our classes were the two least invite worthy. So we just quit. I ran an RP guild on Balmung, was successful for a few months. Harassment started up, i disband and left to Gilgamesh. Started another there, same issue. Disband and quit the game, came back started it up again. Disband and quit again, ended in returning to Balmung. Went ok for awhile, war broke out with an old friend who changes his views about rp. Quickly disbanded and name changed, joined an old friends Company. Had a private room, then quit when Duty queues and kicks over stupid "Do better damage", issues. So i inadvertantly quit. Been almost 2 months. The fiance constantly wants to go back, and i partly agree with her. Recently wasn't as bad, as the harassment from my starting experience on the server. Having bumped into the first person a met, again. Just needed a break from the douchers who "rule" duty finder content. Originally i was going to mix an Electronic track, using the Machinists Sound FX, and the ambient noise of the Skysteel Factory from heavensward. Creating a new subgenre of EDM, sort of a Steampunk-EDM. Was going to get a few friends from that company involved, with other Skill SFX recordings. But that was right when i left. So i still feel compelled to go back. Can't really find steam powered machinery noise, anywhere else, without it sounding like a modern factory. Guns of Icarus Online had some recording potential as well. I've been debating streaming, since i joined the new Akron, OH guild this year, and got a new gaming laptop with streaming software. Was arguing with myself on what game to stream. Comes down to what game doesn't already have a million streamers. With Guns of Icarus being new, and a kickstarter funded game. It doesn't have advertisement like other companies. But It would be more enjoyable with more players. Same as the OP and his search for fellow players. Everythings' better with less douchebags from the already existant game community.

XI has changed so drastically. I know the pain you're talking about, but in some ways I do miss the old party system. However, experience gains have been drastically altered/boosted, especially with the new Fields/Grounds of Valor and Records of Emminance (mini quests that just have you kill x amount of enemies in an area for bonus exp/gil) and the new Trust system where you can build a party of NPCs to accompany you by learning "Trust Magic" through various means (quests, purchase, rewards). You can solo almost the entire game now, including many battlefield areas.

 

I'd encourage you to give it another shot, given that you can get the entire game for about 30 dollars on Steam now. If they were still doing free trials I'd shoot you one.

Every single Friday is #FFFriday! (Use that tag to look us up on twitter!) We have a small group of Extra Life members that meet up and play FFXIV on Fridays around 9PM EST. I love FFXIV very much and have been playing ever since ARR came out. I love running both new and old content so every Friday we like to help out other members with dungeons, primals, etc... basically anything and everything that people want to do.  We are located on Malboro. I started out on Ultros but my original FC died out and I wanted to do something else. I met @Vazio sometime last year and we came up with an idea to do #FFFriday on Malboro! Now we have several members that join us for this epic night of FFXIV fun and also get to talk about Extra Life among other things live on stream! We have a Discord channel that we use to communicate with everyone during this even too! 

 

If you are interested please let us know! We have so much fun every single friday!

 

Also I made a thread here if anyone is interested in checking it out:

Wish these forums gave me alerts so I'd see these replies!

Sorry to hear about your server woes. NA communities a majority of MMORPGs, especially large franchises, tend to be rather shitty. However I've found and met a lot of great people through this game. I lead a Free Company on Balmung with a lot of interesting people. Though miscommunication and disagreements within the game have happened it hasn't swayed my love for the game-- even attending FanFest this year!

Would love to hook up and play together sometime if it's possible! @Dj-Sparky @Zyaldar

I haven't been subscribed for a few months. But i was an avid and dedicated roleplayer. After meeting a few great people, through streaming. My fiance and I may both resub to FFXIV HW, in July. May continue my original ideas, as well. I will probably stream it, and the Rp events i attend and Host, as a sort of "story time" stream. As for my ideas. AS i am an aspiring, disabled musician. I want to use game sfx, and voice lines; to produce original, gaming music. Of the EDM genre, and steampunk subgenre. using the sounds of the Skysteel Manufactory, in Ishgard, and the sounds of the class skills. Project Machinist, and my adventuring in Eorzea, will not be coming to a close. My future in streaming, also has large goals. Not only do i have a set of digital mixers, but i also have a Launchpad Pro. I would like to set it up, as a comical, Real Time soundboard. To help increase the interactivity, and humor, of my stream. To make it more enjoyable, for my soon-to-be viewers. Right now, i don't have any, and am still very green in the understanding of my launchpads capabilities. But i have hope, that i can combine my love of gaming, music, and humor. Into my stream, so others my experience my passion, and how it pertains to my Extra Life-style :P.  Please feel free, to add me, or keep an eye out for me. Sigmund Frey is my main. Race changed him due to harassment, but still love him. My alt is Bubunori Zezenori. Djsparky85, on twitch, and facebook.

Hey @Descrier! I started out on Ultros when ARR first launched and I was huge into the game back in the day. I absolutely loved it! Sadly right before Heavensward came out my FC died out and I wanted to continue on an revitalize the game for me. When I met @Vazio he mentioned that he played on Malboro and we decided to start something called, #FinalFANtasyFriday or #FFFriday where we play FFXIV and talk about games, Extra Life, etc... This has been a ton of fun because we have gotten several other Extra Lifers to join us on this server to play at least once a week. This past month has been a little tough for all of us to play though because of vacations and what not but still a ton of fun when we all do meet up on Malboro.
