    This is actually a really good idea. Of course it's sad we're not getting the legacy discount period, but 15 bucks a month for 8 chars seems pretty reasonable (once you accept the cruel, hard reality that is the extra $1 per extra char).

    Yeah, Legacy Tier would be awesome, but I don't know how they would determine who qualifies for it in FFXI. Something like that generally has to be introduced near to the game's launch (or in the case of FFXIV, its re-launch).

    So while the Legacy Tier probably couldn't be carried over to FFXI, the other two tiers certainly could be.

    you got my vote for this idea, I hope SE considers doing this, I believe it would attract new players and keep older ones

    Far too much wrong with current game to attract new people even with payment plans. How likely is it a new player will experience the content most of us long time players have? Especially in a world where you're penalized by being new? (Abyssea, VW you can't even BENEFIT from these till after a period of time has passed.)

    that does not happen on all of the worlds of vana`diel thankfully, on some of those worlds you have vet players helping new players as much as possible and having fun doing it, the elitist attitude a lot of players have, not any game mechanics is what will eventually kill this game
