@kishinfoulux: You shouldn't need to apply on the Guildwork site once you attach a XIV character to your profile. It should automatically authorize you based on your membership in the FC.
As for attaching your character, the Guildwork profile settings should have the option to attach a character and will walk you through the process. Admittedly, it has been a while since I needed to do so, so my knowledge of the process is rusty at best.
Oh ok. When I checked the recruitment page I didn't see my name on there, which is why I asked.
And I'll check again for attaching my image. Thanks.
The GB guild is still very active. We have a solid international representation, so there are people on at all hours. If you decide to jump in, you can find us on the Ultros server.
If anything, the game has only improved since launch. Many of the early issues with late-game leveling have been smoothed out, and many quality-of-life improvements have been implemented. What is most encouraging is SE's commitment to adding content at regular intervals. The two previous content patches added a ton of stuff, and the third (coming July 8th) looks to add a ton more.
If you are in the market for an MMO, I could not recommend XIV more. It is a fantastic game.
Also some great new content hitting in like 2 weeks.
It's a ton of fun. Probably the only MMO I can actually stick with. Give it a shot for sure.
