While this was a fun excursion, only 5 people tried this out. FFXIV retail is a much better option for most people so I'd recommend that. BNET.cc has a presence on the Excalibur server, and has been on FFXIV since Alpha testing 1.0. It is still a fantastic game, if not more so now, so I would recommend checking it out. You can follow the 1.0 project: https://bitbucket.org/Ioncannon/ffxiv-classic-server
We'll be bringing something new soon to fill the gap.
