I hope you’ll have that feeling again. Maybe with the next online FF game. Although I wonder if they’ll even bother to make another one seeing how MMOs are pretty out of vogue nowadays.
But there’s a chance that your friends would like to get back to FFXIV too. I mean almost everyone itt plays with that idea every now and then so why not also your friends. They might have seen the Stormbringers news and gotten the itch again, who knows.
I’d like to play with people too but I’ve no experience with that in MMOs. And on sb everyone is on a different server… So I’ll probably never get to do that
