So i noticed last night while playing at work that there was 1700 ppl playing and I was like hmm doesn't seem like 1700 people are playing so out of boredom I went to the market wards and started counting people just standing around bazaaring and the final count i got blew my mind there was over 800 ppl just standing around bazzaring. That is almost half the server count lol.......... I bought this game to kill time at work (work 3rds at hotel) and I just run around and kill random stuff.. Anyhoo I was thinking after my free 30 is up I will cancel membership and wait till alteast the 2nd-3rd expansion comes out if it makes it that far. I did that with FFXI was way more impressed when i came back with the game then when i started. But I will probally be banned again like i was on FFXI while on vacation... LOL Just thought ppl would find this tid bit kinda funny incase others have noticed this.

You went to the market wards and counted all the retainers as actual players? That part sounds confusing.

I don't know whats more sad, that you think you could possibly go around counting everyone... or that you counted the retainers as if they were people.

How long did it take to count those people lol >.>

That was probably more fun than I had playing this game last night.

*edit*

HaH I didn't notice he was counting in the market wards, GG

He still prolly had more fun than the game content would provide though

Related question, how can I get a character name that is just my first name? Saw hundreds of characters with just a single name . . .

Can't tell if this is a joke post, I'll take it seriously.

1) Wards are retainers and players. So most of what you counted were probably a player's retainer.

2) You can't get only first names. NPCs/Retainers are the only characters that get only 1 name.

I *think* what he is suggesting is that the /sea all count (or whatever the equivalent is - I haven't figured it out) is counting retainers as players.

It would be really nice for SE to release the actual numbers. I'm curious.

Even if you only counted 2 name characters we still don't know if you counted people that were shopping or moved while you were counting, left, entered or what not.

When I search in the wards I stand in a place and scan every character that pops up, I may be standing there for 15 minutes, did you think someone like me was a Bazaar? How many characters did you count were doing that?
