Why I left EVE -- and why you shouldn't bother with this game.

I feel for you OP, definitely sounds like you've had a rough time. I believe this is just how the game is though, and that is both the beauty of it and the pain you've experienced. Consequently, there's no reason a band of players couldn't form and go after said corp, or griefer even. You really can do anything, to include plotting an elaborate revenge.
Now as to the fact that you can never truly be safe....I dunno - guess you have to accept it...or find better friends....or just don't play like myself :P
Wow, glad to see i'm not the only one! And have to agree with everyone about the nostalgia too. I have just about every soundtrack from it and it doesn't help things.
I guess all the mmo's I've played aren't necessarily bad - they just don't do for me what FFXI did back in the day. If only there were a way to make it reality again.
Ahhh video game problems = first world problems.
Hello there. I used to play FFXI a long time ago on release, and have struggled to find my place among the MMOs of today. Sure, I played Wow, Aion, Guild Wars, ESO, Star Wars, and everything between, but nothing compares to the feelings and experiences FFXI gave me. My first trip on the boat to Selbina, when pirates attacked and a friend told me to hide inside. Parties in the dunes where kind folks explained how a party functioned, and how to do skill chains. My first trek to Jeuno - a taru led me and took down one of those giant trees in Jugner Forest - I was wide eyed, excited, and scared! Oh and my first time on a chocobo - I was straight up giddy.
I really liked the sense of such a massive world. Back before we just warped everywhere it was actually hard getting around, and I loved it! Running through it, seeing the sights, hearing the awesome music, it all felt like a real adventure. That and you really had to rely on others which led to some pretty cool friendships. And death meant something too. With great risk came great reward and a true sense of achievement and satisfaction.
Now a days, I feel like mmos just want me to pay for stuff, regardless of subscription model. Everyone wants me to log in for some daily log on bonus for free stuff that I don't want handed to me. I don't get a sense of awe exploring. The music is not memorable. I mean I wish I could see the weather turn from sunny to rainy in an area.
Gone are the days I suppose. But anyways I'm curious what FFXi folks have moved on to playing these days. I'm sure there are others like me who miss that magic touch from so long ago. I've heard some mention archeage, which looks pretty neat. I think Star Citizen could be pretty awesome too.

Exact same thing happened to me. Someone managed to recover my account onto there xbox somewhere in the world and charge some 2000 points. Xbox support was horrendous. I was locked out of my account for months and eventually they told me that it's my fault because an xbox account can not be hacked. When I tried to talk to someone more senior they hung up on me. Yep, was a blast. Got a good laugh when I logged onto the website and it said I had been playing Fifa soccer 2 mins ago, a game I dont own.
I've seen Battletoads pop up a few times and dear god am I forced to agree. I remember having so much fun until reaching the third stage - racing obstacle course from hell.
