    I haven't even been playing a year, so i can't comment on the olden days. Yes soloing is difficult for most jobs, probably like it was before. The new expansion has options for gaining experience as a soloer, but it's still not fast. This game is definitely based on playing with groups, which isn't always my thing either. I've worked one job to the max. The rest I work here and there, but most often lately I'm crafting or piddling around the new expansion solo.

    I've never played WoW, but I've met plenty of people in FFXI who left the game for WoW and came back not long after. It may be a longer road leveling up here in FFXI but it's a more rewarding experience than in WoW, from what I've heard.

    Welcome (or welcome back) to Stratics, by the way :)

    It's hard to say honestly. it really depends on the server you pick and how social you are. I'd join a few linkshells to increase the amount of people you know so that you can find a group when you need to.

    The game is still on the main shelves of the game stores and they've added the xbox 360 to the platforms that can play so the signs of popularity are good! It's not like some other MMO's that are already in the bargain bin.
