We need a search function more than anything
1) Logging in and asking LS doesn't work at most times.
2) It links together the larger community
3) It was in FFXI, is it too hard to do?
4) People will grow tired of r20+ and quit the game

I assume you're referring to a search for party function? There's one already in the game. Lots of people don't even know its there and of those that do, most don't use it. Maybe SE could change it. Who knows? I just can't help but think that it can't be all that important to people if they can't be bothered to click on the "Party" option from the main menu and poke around a bit to find it.

The search function in FFXIV only lets u search for classes that u leveled and its just overall horrible and useless. All we need is a /sea all 20-24 gla so we can /tell people to start groups. A LFG sign would also be appreciated.

/sea in FFXI is vastly more useful than the current function in FFXIV.

Problem with the search function, only JP's really know how to use it.

Other people are adjusting to the solo features and using that and not really partying.

The search and recruit function is actually quite easy to use. The reason 'only japanese players know how to use it' is because everyone else is too impatient to read and experiment.

I wrote up a guide on how to use it here: http://ffxiv.zam.com/forum.html?forum=152&mid=128828832620239427&page=1

I do, however, agree that there needs to be a way players can be tagged as LFG and allow party leaders to snatch them up.

Its not like its a great system that nobody knows how to use. Like most other stuff, its an overly complex and hard to use system that nobody's bothering with because shouting is easier. Having /sea again would have been better imo.

I think both systems have goods and bads.

XI: I am tagged as LFG, I sit here the whole day because I am not a very initiative person, and I don't like asking everyone out there and wait for 10min to get reply; and when I want to find a group, I don't know where the groups are or if there's any group that's looking for a job that I have. But, people can find me easily because my tag is up!

XIV: I log on, first thing, is there any group out there and yay there's a list of 4 groups recruiting, join and have fun. Problem, I wish people can let me know there's a group that formed in the last 5 min when I am crafting for the last 15min...I don't close my craft window to check if there's a group that might want me or a group that I want after every craft. Since I am not a very initiative person, I don't put myself in the recruiting list.

Conclusion, if there can be both...it would be awesome for a lazy person like me^^
