I haven’t put much work into this blog

I haven’t put much work into this blog over the last year and I think it’s time to say enough is enough. I’m not entirely sure if I’m completely done with FFXI but I certainly haven’t got the time to devote to both the game and this blog that I once did.

I feel like I am winding up my commitment to FFXI. I’m barely playing and FFXIV is around the corner and far more casual friendly. I may not have much time for that with my evening classes at college!

There are a lot of memories in these posts, good and bad. The first post http://wp.me/proJH-4 on it was on Sep 3rd 2007 but I didn’t write much for a couple of years.

August 29th 2011 was my most popular post with 4,423 views with 1800 views each coming from Guildwork and Bluegartr.com. On that day I published a bunch of stuff from the test server about dynamis and new spells etc. The posts start here https://eldelphia.wordpress.com/2011/08/29/test-server-dynamis-tavnazia-screenshots/

Other popular posts include https://eldelphia.wordpress.com/2009/05/17/why-dont-you-work-it-out-for-yourself-instead-of-waiting-for-a-sackholder-to-wipe-your-backside/

My top commenters have been Anexya, Evilpaul and Shaorankun.

Various linkshell dramas have caused a great deal of interest (as you’d imagine) but I’d just like to mention some of the hundreds of people who have made the game fun for me over the years.

It’s a very long time since Gilraen and I played together but we were an ace team and I’ve always missed you and your crazy BLM sidekick Beebo.

Over the years, a lot of people stuck by Serendipity and Fortuna and I’d like to thank every single one of them! Yes, even you.

I can’t list everyone and I’d offend a lot more if I tried but especial thanks to Doyler and Niamh who were there from the beginning.

Thanks to everyone who has read this crap over the years.

Thanks to all the peeps I static’d with for CoP, Assaults, Salvage, Nyzul Isle and more. Salvage especially was enormous fun.

Thanks to all the idiots who pulled for us in Dynamis and Einherjar!

Some of the people who have made this game more enjoyable include Martinius, Erestor, Anroga, Eiden, Carpenter, Rotx, Levander, Vykos, Athenaa, Dellos, Silkxiv, Kazgoroth, Slaanesh, Xan, Bergi, Shao, Berdysh, Kd, Hasi and loads more. There are so many people I think fondly of, I can’t possibly list them all.

I can’t finish up this post without at least mentioning Clevan (RIP honey). C was an awesome guy who became a great friend. When we first heard about his sickness I sent a whole heap of well wishes to him from the guys in Serendipity and Nova (our dyna shell). I stuck them in a huge card and posted it to him. It made his day and made him cry. C was pretty much universally liked, was the funloving counterpart to all my srs bsns and I miss him a lot.

Who knows what’s around the corner but I have a feeling this is the last time I’ll blog about FFXI. Enjoy your gaming!

      Aww it’s nice to hear from you hon. Hope all is well? I’ll email you 🙂 Many of the peeps you used to play with have quit or jumped server. Your name does come up every now and then but there is no more Serendipity etc.

    Best time I had in FFXI was with Seren 🙂
    Good luck with all your real life endeavours and if we don’t poke each others in FFXI again I’m sure we’ll have plenty of occasions in XIV!
    See you soon!
