Party search in this game requires you to be leader, meaning you recruit people for a certain task (which by the way is limited in that regard, we have 3 choices, Local Levesquests, Regional Levequests and Quests and who is going to party for local leves? they should add some more choices like Skillpoints Party and Behest Party for example). We want, on top of this, the ability to seek for a party - maybe they can even automate the process in some cases. For example, say someone is recruiting for a party and he requires a rank 15 Archer...I come along sometime later and I put up my party seek flag, I am a rank 15 Archer so I match the criteria, therefore it can automatically insert me in said party. The criteria would be decided by you and the person recruiting, so I, as the seeker, can choose to be looking for a Skillpoints party around Camp Bloodshore; if some recruitment criteria matches mine the game can automatically insert me into said party and on top of that should prompt me to teleport to said area (for free, no anima)...honestly how awesome would that be??
it requires you to search out a party that needs you and then join it.
Honestly the two things I infer from this argument are as follows (and maybe I'm way off base here)
1) I like old systems because I know how to use them and they're better.
2) I like to put up my seek flag and watch YouTube videos (and post them to my LS who don't care) because I'm lazy and like standing in town for 6 hours rather than just starting a ******* party.
This isn't a personal attack. This is just (an exaggerated) opinion based on what I'm reading.
As I said, you don't have to think the current system is better (although, I do, cause I like parties forming in 20 minutes rather than 2-12 hours) and if you want a better one then by all means promote one.
Really, how hard is it to set up a Recruitment? You click a button. Add some jobs you want....
AND WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!! just like putting up a "Invite Me" flag.
Gah. I'm taking crazy pills. (Clearly, cause I play XIV and like it).
PS: Admit the "Reason" criteria is silly, but hey you can put a message saying "haha just kidding we're grinding SP. Please join." badaboom.
