A nice new feature would be that you don't have to be in the game while looking for party. Just a window like an IM when someone sends you a tell so you can log on. Also, sends you an e-mail, tweet, or calls your cell while you're waiting. So you can be doing stuff, go to work, or on vacation.

Sorry about the sarcasm, just got done looking for party on corsair for 3 hours on a saturday.... how bad can it get? heh

i feel your pain, i remember when samurai was an undesired job wayyy back in 2004. It took hours to get a party (probably just as much as a drg, if not more) since no one knew our potential. Now they're everywhere. XD

This would be a nice addition, although i always wanted to have some sort of <call> associated with the tell so I can hear it if it pops up. Although I think someone told me they have something like that now.

When players need to find other ways to entertain themselves while playing your game, it's high time somebody got fired.

I know your being tongue-in-cheek, but if I seriously see SE extol a feature like that for FFXIV in an interview, I might just cry. ;_;

Exactly. You turn a game on because you want to play, not watch TV, not read a book, you want to play.

Feh, I wouldn't mind an out-of-game communication system. Say your linkshell decides to run an impromptu eco-warrior and they want to see if you want to go? It'd be cool if you could set it up where you could receive tells from people on your friends list when you were offline. Maybe sent to your phone or something, with limitations, maybe like no more than one text every half hour from one friend, something like that. I'd be down for that. Of course, I could just give them all my phone number, but sometimes, there are people who I think are cool in-game that I don't actually want to have my number.

Everyone hates the LFG time from FFXI. It ruined the game. It's been mentioned on pretty much every other thread.

What are the solutions? So far mentioned have been solo play, more campaign/besieged events, level sync, more concentrated servers by time zone, and other things.

Tweet isn't the answer to a broken game mechanic. Read the threads for more info.

Actually it's called "Libel"... and only if it is fabricated, but hey, you are the admin.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

I can't do much on corsair solo wise, unless I wanna spend a ton of bullets to build tp and fastly kill mobs, as for campaign and beseiged, doing that on a level 53 job isn't going to get you far when you can't even hit a mob and your buffs don't work on anything.

So I either play my other 75 jobs or sit with flag up on corsair in whitegate for hours waiting. This locks up my computer so I can't play any other game on it which is why I'd like to see a low process system, or , you're absolutely right, something easy to do on any job to get you exp anytime.

I wouldn't even mind some game type things that give you exp ingame.

I know they plan to keep FFXI going, running along side FFXIV but I honestly can't see it surviving much longer simply because of the problem you've out-lined here.

I do hope FFXIV makes every job a wanted addition to any party. My biggest peeve was trying to put a merit party together, only to be faced with "2 BRDs, Yes Please."

Pain in th ***.
