This thread has inspired me to return to FFXI (WoW, just like anything else in life, gets old after a while too).
I have a quick question, though. I read somewhere that if you cancel your POL account, you have to buy the game all over again. I remembered my login info, and tried to login to the main FFXI site and saw this:
"PlayOnline services currently cannot be accessed because the selected PlayOnline account has already been closed, or because service fees have not been paid. By reactivating your PlayOnline account, you will be able to access PlayOnline services again. For more information, please log in to the PlayOnline Viewer."
I'm assuming it just means that I have to resubscribe. However, when a friend of mine tried his POL info at the site, it simply told him that his account didn't have any active content IDs.
I won't actually be reactivating until Sunday so this is just foreplay, but if there is a quick and easy explanation that'd be nice.
Also, $25 for a character world transfer! That sealed the deal for my return.
