I don't know if this has been discussed, so if it has, don't hesitate to point to the post (I haven't found anything through searching).
I also don't know if it is a general problem, or only on my server (Rabanastre), but whenever I search for a party, I barely get any hits. Wherever I search from, I usually see two or three parties forming, half of which are usually just teleportation parties, and the rest of which are out of my level range. I am not being specific with the type of party or its requirements in order to get as many hits as possible.
I figure there HAS to be more parties forming than that on the server! Is the party search function limited in scope, am I not being specific enough in my search parameters, or are there really that few parties forming at any given time? Partying is about the only thing left I still enjoy in this game (until Squeenix finally turns things around), and even that is hard to do!
Any feedback is welcome!
