Personally, I started MS Sometime before Pirates but After 4th job. (The following is a mini story that I felt like sharing, Ignore it if you aren't interested) I recall that the first day I played was the 3rd Anniversary I think? however I didn't get the hang of MS and got stuck and deleted my character and made a new one a year later. I remember soon after that My character got a weird glitch on it where it was immune to all damage, except for like environment damage I think? I dunno. obviously people called me a hacker due to this weird glitch, however when a thunderstorm came along and caused my computer to turn off the glitch was gone. I also remember playing with this one girl who was apparently very ill and constantly had to go to the doctors. one day she started freaking out about how she had to go into surgery and such, like there was a chance that she may not be alive at the end of it, I think she probably had cancer or something. But anyways Her mom talked to me through her character, trying to calm me down as well, and telling me that it was the only option she had left. I didn't get any sort of contact after that from her again...yeah. So To this day I still wonder if this was real, and that she died, or maybe it was someone who was seriously pulling my leg. I do recall her IGN, though I think her character got deleted anyways....but yeah her IGN was Kikimye. so yeah there is my story, if you feel like sharing a mini story about your early days, feel free.
