Hello everyone. I'm new to these boards and the whole "FF MMORPG" scene but find myself unusually excited about the kind of game that FFXIV appears to be turning into.
I noticed that there is a strong "anti-recruit" message being sent from this community and I certainly can appreciate that. I'm hoping that the following does not go against this; I have no interest in "recruiting" so much as finding people with a similar interest. I see this thread as a parallel to (http://ffxiv.zam.com/forum.html?game=268&mid=127049020565592784&num=72&page=1) which appears to be fairly accepted as "okay".
Because I am new to this scene, I would really love to find people with a common gaming interest to enter the FFXIV world; whether that be as a guild (linkshell?), community, or simply bunch of "online pals". One thing in particular that I have always enjoyed in games is actually building a community/group with others to expand and play with; these ties usually last longer than the average "gamer acquaintanceship". I'm happy to join any pre-existing group or work on something "fresh".
So real quick, here are some things I value:
People primarily 18+ or mature enough to fool others if younger who play during evening hours (5:00pm-12:00am EST/CST)
A friendly, open-minded, group with an interest in whatever game "progression" is offered.
A group where leadership sticks to ideals and holds members accountable. However, ideally a group would be casual/hardcore in which people understand that sometimes life takes precedence but people enjoy a game enough to play regularly.
People who actually enjoy the company of other people in a game.
If you have a group or may have an interest in putting something together with me, please contact me on these boards or leave a reply message and I will contact you.
Also, if this posting is in fact violating a forum policy and/or is too "close to the line", you have my sincere apologies and I will remove this thread myself.
