(And yes I played WoW too, nowhere near as rewarding) I haven't found a single MMO that's felt as good and as rewarding as FFXI did.
Played a BUNCH of MMOs though.
FFXI
WoW
EQ2
FFXIV
TERA
Rift
EVE
Fallen Earth (my god was this awful)
Guild Wars
Guild Wars 2
SWTOR
City of Heroes
Champions Online
Aion
etc etc, played a bunch of free ones too (pretty much all crap)
MMOs these days are just, "power level with quests and dungeons to max level with little to no interaction with other, then farm for raid gear, then raid" Sure they added 'harder' difficulties but it's still the same basic principal and it's already gotten old. Waiting for something to come along that actually holds my interest for more than a month or so.

You missed some of the good ones. Asheron's call and DAOC weren't for sissies either. EQ1 before the 4th expansion would also put hair on your chest. Ultima Online was dog-eat-dog. You could mention the names of some of the infamous PvPers (open PvP, they could attack anyone, at any time, excluding town where the guards would get them.) to a UO vet to this day and if they played on the same server, they have a story.

Off-Topic'ish...
A hundred times this! Took forever to get my first job to the then 75lvl cap. When WotG hit, I had every single job to the new 99lvl cap in under a month with out even trying once I decided to cap everything.
With any luck FFXIV 2.0 will be much, much better. The director of CoP (the best expansion in the game) is now leading it.

Still have it installed, will see how it turns out. I loved CoP, it felt so good to beat the entire thing, before the difficulty nerf btw. 14 tries on the airship fight... ugh.

Nah, didn't forget them, just didn't play them. FFXI was my first MMO and I didn't play that until late 2005. so anything prior to that I didn't play, never understood the whole MMO thing. But I got into the beta for FFXI on the 360 and was immediately hooked. At this point though, I can't really go back and play the old ones, I don't have the interest.

Honestly though, I think I'm getting tired of MMOs in general. I liked the idea of EVE, but hated that I had no direct control of my ship. Black Prophecy was a cool game, but it was bogged down by a 'meh' interface and menu system. Have VERY high hopes for Star Citizen though.

Yeah, I meant you literally missed them. I knew when you said FFXI was the first you played that the others were on their way out the door by the time you started. UO was flat-out dead.

Isn't it still around? I doubt many are playing it but I could swear it's still alive.

As for the question of the topic. I was White Mage healer main in FFXI, was working on my Thief and my Blue Mage when I quit. Ever since then I don't touch main casters in MMOs anymore. WoW I mained a Rogue. everything else I've been some form of stealth DPS.

I can't remember. I know there are quite a few private servers out there, but most of them are modded. Only a couple are pristine copies of the P2Play servers.

Actually I think UO is still up, and I think they still charge $15 a month.

As an old school MMO player I cannot agree more with these statements. I started with games like EQ, DAOC, etc. One of my biggest shell shocks was when I started playing WoW. There were so many people on the servers, and virtually no reason to know anyone, no community, it was just there. What I mean by this is, in games like DAOC people on the same server would often know each other, in PvP (or RvR is what it was called by Mythic) you would know when a good group was out or a good player and everyone would know that person. With WoW''s system of cross realmed everything it completely killed any sort of community that was left in WoW and just made everyone the same basically with little variation.

I'm sorry to cross into the OT territories, but you must have joined WoW long after release, or Vanilla for that matter. Not only was there a community, I have the privilege to say that I still call the people I played with during 2005-2007 dear friends. Most of them I've met IRL, too. Though I will agree that cross-realm killed it off, nothing compares to the community I knew before CR came into play.

Edit: Again, I do understand that not everyone's experience is/was the same. I just feel the need to relay my experience with the MMO I've stuck with the longest. Nothing before or after (later WoW included) had me hooked as those WoW beginnings and the people that played.

Back when I played FF11 which was really my first MMO that I played for a long time. Had it as soon as it came out on PS2. I ended up playing NINJA and Ranger the most. Later I played WoW. unter.then paladin, then rogue then warrior in vanilla. Stuck with rogue from BC until now as a main. Fun times. I miss FF11. The game was just brutal regarding traveling, killing monsters (which required a group to do at a decent pace), crafting, farming fame, getting gold, getting maps to be able to know where you were going. Hell the dungeons and quests required Alliances to do in many cases. The game felt really big and it took time to get places and get things done which gave it a lot of life. WoW had this up until the end of The Burning Crusade. It faded starting with WOTLK.

It's not poor judgement. It's a learning experience for them.

They eventually get kicked if they don't straighten up. Knowing not to stand in stuff is not that difficult of a concept - if it hurts you, then move away from it. Don't stand in front of the mob unless you are a tank - front aoes hurt.

Now if they don't know the encounter and die to a mechanic, then that is forgivable as long as they make an effort to improve. I even keep around players who do poor dps, as long as they aren't taxing me.
