If I recruit, or, seek for a party I guess, can I be in Gridiana or anywhere in the the world and get an invite[Like in XI] I ask because i see more people shout in Ul'Dah for invites than actually using this feature (unless they do both)

Seeking for a party is a basic feature in an MMO such as FFXIV. So, of course there is no useable search feature implemented yet. But, hey, it has only been a year, gotta be patient, right?

Yeah, the "feature," as it currently exists, is woefully insufficient. It's convoluted, it's confusing, and, to my knowledge, nobody even uses it because it's so bad.

Everyone hopes SE will make a good party search feature some time - you know, like how they did about a decade ago when they made FFXI - but nobody has any idea when that time will be.

I put my name up for invite any time I'm looking to work on my LNC. That being said... to this day I have never gotten an invite.

What scares me is the lack of any mention that a new search system is on the way. Maybe SE figures it's best to establish the new job system before introducing party grind features. If so that's ok I guess, but I just wish they would at least acknowledge the cries for /sea and say that it's coming.

The lack of a viable party search/seek system, and the continued fact that no such mechanism implementation or improvement is ever mentioned as part of any upcoming change, is the main driving force behind why I haven't logged on in over a month and why I probably won't spend any measurable amount of time logged in regardless of the current patch.

To me it's terribly frustrating to see such wonderful mechanisms and playstyles being developed for group-based combat, yet it's just about impossible to find and join a group of fellow adventurers willing to band together and tackle such obstacles outside of an already established social list.
