    Default Will this game ever be free?

    I was wondering if this game will ever become free. I'm to cheap to pay, and me and my freinds realy want to play. I've been loking for a *evilthingnottobesaidonthisboard* or an emulator, that's nor free apparently. So s their a chance of f2p.

    Forget it, that game's way over the criterias for a free-to-play MMO
    As I always said, if you can't afford a game, maybe you don't belong to it ...

    There aren't much chances it would go buy-to-play, so free to play.. It's almost impossible.
    Blank spaces are always awesome, right?

    Unless the game completely switches companies, (ala FE:Z, but it's not happening) then chances of FFXI going Free to Play is zero to none. If you ever do decied to play, you definantly get alot for your money, considering the amount of content the game plus all three expansion packs have.

    There's no way you could make an emulator for this game as you have to login from the the play online viewer. Which makes it impossible to emulate.

    their no reason for this game to go f2p. their getting new expansions aswell. asking if this game would ever go f2p is just dumb. just pay for the game.

    I'd send you one but I gave it to friend and he never gave it back even tho he said he'd never use it.
    W/e, you can't possibly appreciate the game after only 30 days
    I've just started to really get into it and have been a member for like 3 months ...
    It's really awesome tho, I just unlocked Samurai and Corsair jobs
    took like 8 hours ...

    No offense but asking if this game will be free is like asking sony to lower their price on the ps3...it's just not gonna happen. ^^

    Odd ... I've never had ramen.

    "People are stupid, they get to focused on chasing gold to realize that they're walking on diamonds." Got that from some fanfic I read.^^

    lol you know they are lowering the price of the ps3 by about 100$ if I remember right
    There are 5 things in this world that are yours, and nobody can take away from you, you can only loose them from yourself: Your love, your hate, your passion, you education, and your memories.

    This game will never be free, it's too good to be free. And also, this isn't the type of game you can just get on and play for 1-2 hours a day. In order to get the full experience, you have to play AT LEAST 3 hours a day to make any REAL progress.


    Currently playing: FFXIV (Elucifer Arclight, Leviathan server), LoL (Trash Tier Waifu, NA server), SMITE (Zacewing)

    Well i've heard that it was made so you can get alot of feeling out of a little plytime. But i usualy play a mmo for 3-5 hours at a time. i also know that i can't get the ful experience in 30days. but i just need to see some basic stuff to see if i want to ps for it everry month.

    Asking if this game will be free is like asking if pizza could be made in Antarctica. And trying to find Private Servers won't work because A) PServers don't exist for this game, because it is near impossible to make one. And PServers would suck because they'd only pe able to hold about 1000 people, which means not a lot of people wanting to party, and the only way to level in this game is in parties (unless you're a Beastmaster). On Remora, there's only about 80-120 people seeking party at one time, and there's always 2000+ people online, so if there were only 1000 people on the server, you'd only have about 40-60 seeking, and that means slim pickings for parties (there's few enough White Mages as it is).

    This game probably will never be free, nor will there ever be a private server, according to most attempts.

    It's too good to be free, you want good stuff in life, sadly you have to pay.
    And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear.

    You shout and no one seems to hear.

    There's a free server now. But............................

    You still have to have a PlapOnline account, lol.


    I'm going to switch to Star Wars unless they drop the price to $6. This game aint so exciting any more when you could be playing The Old Republic.

    It was good though. Square better do something soon. $12x10,000=big losses and I'm just thinking small.

    Better take the $6x10,000 $60,000 VS $12x0000 which means $ZERO DOLLARS!

    Neverrrrrr... FFXI will never ever be free.. xD.. lol
    Not to mention that changing to f2p after having been p2p all these years would be terribly un-professional and desperate.

    FFXI probably won't even be around much longer once FFXIV comes out.. -sigh- rather depressing ._. play while you can and give them reason to keep our lovely servers up and running D:
    FFXI forever!

    There is a way to get through everything, it's just unfortunate that noone cares enough about this game to do it.

    I guess not.. FF has a big name and big reputation.. They don't want to be this game as F2P level. If you like this game you may try Atlantica Online.. They have same game interface. It is a turn based game as well..

    Default FFXI rox

    I've been playing FFXI for almost 7 years and there's never a dull moment. 4 level 75s, and more in the near future...i would highly recomend it, it is only $12.95 US, I'm from Canada so i pay a little more...but it's worth every penny.
