No its not because of a technical issue. I am not the only one noticing a dramatic drop in LS members being on and its taking a huge toll on my ability to play FFXIV. First off I am a rank24 thaum and the majority of r30 leves are slow to do or impossible solo. It is also hard to get a SP party. This is what I do now: I log in and grab leves then run to camp and ask in LS if anyone is up for r30 leves. Then i get no response so I log off.
And I just want to add that I didnt have this problem in FFXI during launch. Mainly because SE didnt go nuts and spread division of play in FFXI. People were only either seeking the occasional missions or EXP party. In FFXIV it is too sporadic and impossible to get parties going since camps consist of people at huge varying rank levels.
