Shit there's so much to reply to in this thread. I'll start from the thread's discussion point I guess!
Banigaru (Hated back in the day, but he was nice to me and I kinda liked playing with him
Typo (Only person that I knew that could stay in character indefinitely, yet still not be annoying because he still felt OOC enough to communicate with. <3 you Typo!)
Jeryhn (Probably one of the most disliked NA SMNs on Cerberus but he did know his shit and I did like playing with him)
I can imagine like half that list won't be moving to XIV. But, there were no specifics, I simply put down names I remembered I would love to play in XIV again with. Also had to hijack names from other people's lists because I had forgotten about them. I won't say who though so they don't Q.Q about me forgetting D:
Second part of this thread, brought to us by Conf. Its good to know that what had me laughing back then, has me laughing now. Oldbie Cerberus players from the HNMLS scene verbally duking it out like its still 2005. I checked back here in 2009, you know what I found? NOTHING! No good Cerberus drama went on at ALL after I quit for 3 years! I came back for a short stint, pissed my best friend off by coming back to FFXI, quit again to stop pissing her off. That was last year, and it looks like if not for the oldbies, there's just no good drama here. So to be honest, thanks Conf for starting shit up again. As they say in the League of Legends General Discussion boards for a good trolling thread, "This thread delivers."
Third I am in full agreement that FFXI had THE BEST MMO community to date. A lot of the reasons for why have already been stated in this thread and I am in agreement. Whether you were PM, WW or KoN, it didn't matter if you shit talked towards one-another...there was a closeness you got from your fellow community members in this game that you will NEVER...EVER feel the same in a game like WoW. XIV is right around the corner to go live, guys. Lets bring that Cerberus community we built upon then over to there and make it even stronger in a new endeavor.
Your friendly, and probably only transgender MtF Mithra SMN,
