How are people finding level-appropriate groups in the game?

The ingame search engine allows you to list all types of criteria and level ranges, then it just says 'recruiting' and never does anything else. Even the documentation under Menu > Support Desk > FAQ specifically states 'There is no feature to search for other players". At least they come out and just TELL you that, but meantime how are you supposed to get a group?

I don't have a huge LS and the only people on my friends list are people who I've grouped with and didn't suck. Its a short list. In addition, the newly imposed 5-group-level limit eliminates a lot of others. Since the leves arent at camps anymore im not sure where to look for people. Most of the time I just solo and it sucks.

Not being able to connect with other players in an MMO is beyond frustrating. How are people getting around the lack of any kind of LFG system?

If its for a guildleve, I stand at the appropriate camp and ask politely in /say. If its just to explore/kill things I start in the adventurer's guild. Its a fun way to meet new people :)

Yeah I just stand in the camp and spam a few times and I'll get a 3-4 person party started in no time.

Welcome to the 20's, you are now discovering what is arguably the most critical issue with the game, but is never mentioned because you are slightly ahead of the curve of masses. Based on the forthcoming patch notes, SE has no intention to addressing it until at least 2011, so I would advise submitting suggestions and feedback.

You're preaching to the choir my friend. I've already submitted a couple reports regarding this. Hopefully they address it.

I mostly do ls groups. I've done a couple random groups too though, you can find them at camps or in town, and it is definitely a good way to meet new people. Maybe look around for a bigger LS, or try recruiting more people to yours. They definitely play a pretty critical role in gameplay atm.

I haven't used the party search system at all yet, and I'm halfway to 25. I would greatly appreciate if SE brought back the party flag system from FFXI, but I don't see it in the very near future.

Oh and btw Obakemono, your profile pic cracked me up lol. Is there a larger sized version of that around? :P

I'm stuck here too. I've outleveled my LS(they're all altaholics) and there are no camps for lvl 30 leves. The aetherite is generally empty or people already have their group made. I try asking at the closest camp, but that's not working out so well either.
