Quick Q for all those currently playing the Beta. One of the things I loved most about FFXI was the community and the emphasis on party play. I didn't realize how important this was to me until I played other MMO's and their ability to play solo if you desire.... well thats just the problem most folks are lazy and if they don't have to go to the trouble of looking for a party or developing relationships they won't so most of these games are all about soloing which to me defeats the purpose of MMO's.

Anyway not to rattle on but I really hope that FFXIV has the emphasis on community and party play that FFXI had... nothing worse than playing an MMO alone.

Floggina Deadhorse should be someone's name in game.

As for community, I haven't been offered a single LS, though it may be my breath. I don't know what the future of the community will be at this point.

So they have LS's in this game?

They do. Also there is a plan for something called a "company" (I think) but we do not know its purpose yet.

Did you really party that much in FFXI before you did hit level ~12 for the first time ?

No but hopefully some of you will have hit lvl 12+ by now youve had the BETA for long enough :)

Community is largely non-existent at the moment, and I would suspect it's largely because people know they're going to be starting over in 2-3 weeks anyways. I've seen one person recruiting for an LS so far...for a high level LS...(LOL!!!!) I was in a party with some people last night who invited me to their LS. It was me and the four of them (RL friends). After the server crash last night, 3 of them decided to change servers. I see more people running around without an LS than with, but that will most certainly change as the game matures.
