I wish instead it was a new clean start for everybody. They're tying it a little too much to the old game.

I like the surname idea, great for immersion and kinda fixes the "I want to keep/reserve my name" issue.

I think its a good strategy to get the game off on the right foot with the FFXI players. I *Hope* that this new game will get more mainstream attention and live up to my internal Hype machine lol.

If there had been genuine viable soloing and at least a few more non-grinding features for leveling, I'd still be playing FFXI lol.

Sorry ;x back on topic! I don't mind so much, my main names for toons are original creations and I've yet to play an MMO I can't get my toon names on, on any server. More Originality in naming = Less issues with articles like these.

I agree with Mewmew, I think they are trying too hard. I spent 4 years on FFXI, I don't want to be reminded of it all the time on a new game. I'm not too keen on how they reused the same races with slight alterations and different names even.

You might as well just name it FFXI-2 if you go this route.

Yea I agree they should have a new race. I'm still shocked that they would keep all the same races.
