It's now a week until #FFXIV FanFest Paris, so I thought I'd organise a little giveaway :
One SDS Fenrir mount item code.
How to enter? Just reply to this toot with a screenshot of your FFXIV character mounted. Simple!
I'll pick a winning entry midnight GMT on Jan 31.
Anyone from any Mastodon instance can enter (doesn't have to be mmorpg.social). Boosts are welcome. but don't feel obliged to!
(and yes, I'll be doing giveaways for other games too!)
Struggling to get to grips with MMORPG.Social? Hopefully our hot-off-the-press Getting Started guide will help!
I'm Gazimoff pretty much everywhere on the Internet, and have been playing MMOs and online games for nearly two decades now. I've written, youtubed and streamed too. Yes, I'm old.
I've tried most of the big names - WoW (since Vanilla), SWTOR, GW2, ESO, Tabula Rasa, LOTRO, DDO, AION, B&S, WildStar, AoC, RIFT, and more besides.
I'm currently spending most of my time in FFXIV, pushing my way to 70 in readiness for the Shadowbringers expansion. It's a huge amount of fun!
Hello and welcome to all the new joiners who’ve just arrived! Why not #introduce yourself by sharing what MMOs you’re playing or what you’re hyped for? And please feel welcome to message me if you have any questions. Hope you enjoy your time here!
Still a newbie, but I’ve been practicing miniature painting with this #warhammer40k Cadre Fireblade.
Been working on painting minis, and really wanted to give Commander Shadowsun a go. I love almost everything about this... apart from painting white armour. Especially pleased with her hair and the base. #warhammer40k
@href Hi there. Not sure if you got my email, but I wanted to apologise for the deluge of spam from mmorpg.social. It should all be cleared up now (400 accounts suspended, thousands of toots deleted), but we've switched to approval-required registrations just in case.
I will also reach out seperately to those we had a federation relay relationship with, and apologise to them directly. It may take time to earn back that trust and be accepted back into the fediverse, but that is my goal.
Going forward, I am aiming to ensure that the workload of moderating is distributed more widely, and that we can react more quickly to these incidents.
I would also like to thank everyone who raised reports and flagged spam. Your work has not been ignored.
An update on spam from MMORPG.Social:
I apologise sincerely for the situation occuring. I'd been absent from the platform, and the solo moderator was overwhelmed by the unrelenting level of spam coming in.
Steps have now been taken.
Roughly 400 spam accounts have been identidied and suspended. Nearly a thousand toots have been deleted from the platform.
Measures have been put in place to block the spammers from returning. This includes new accounts requiring manual approval.
I play a lot of location-based games (a.k.a. #MMOARG ) but this one? I wonder how fun this will be.
Who will play?

It’s been a while, so a quick update on all things Gazz:
Completed #FFXIV Shadowbringers, thoroughly loved it, and wrote a review on it. Started raiding and working on secondary jobs.
Son is now 6 months old and devouring a lot of my time. He’s adorable, but needs a lot of attention.
Not doing Gamescom for the first time in years, which feels great.
Lots of other RL stuff happening, which I’ll share in the next few months. Keeping me very busy!
I’m massively enjoying my time in #FFXIV Shadowbringers so far.
Yes, there’s a fair bit of narrative heavy lifting in the beginning, but it doesn’t feel like it’s overdone. Gritty, but very entertaining.
So, the terms for appearing on the joinmastoson.org server list have been updated, and now require adherence to a covenant (https://joinmastodon.org/covenant)
We comply with most of these, which is great! Is this something you'd like me to pursue?
Looks like the #FFXIV EU servers will be down all day Thursday for the pre-Shadowbringers patch. It's nearly here!
