Oh man... Grandmomma is Ghost Orchid? Mind Blown. If I knew that, I'd have kept my fish to myself.

This weekend was fun all around. Shell was active but not vitriolic as public chat seemed at times. Also seemed really useful getting dungeon groups going - which I passed on this weekend, but will be all in for next. Looking forward to the rest of the game with you people.





I saw you fishing like...20 times. Your fishing rod has an infinitely long line on it. I was gonna stop once and say "Wow that's a long rod.", but stopped myself as it would have came across very badly. Haha.


LMAO (but it was what you were thinking!!)

Hello all,

I had a blast as well, Linkshell dungeon run are much more fun.

Please don't hesitate to ask for help in the shell, I know most thing can be done solo or with the duty finder, but it's much more enjoyable with fellow LS mate :)

Currently harassing my friend to come over Ultros, they had issue creating a character there during the week-end.

Thank YOU for the potions, Grandmomma! Smiley: nod
I didn't personally get much of a chance to help with dungeons as I was too low level to do them when people were asking, then when I was high enough people only were looking for tanks or healersSmiley: lol. I look forward to running with you guys at release.


Your very welcome. Count me in to help blast my way for you in the dungeons.

I'm about to make a post in their feedback to increase LS size, I'll link it here once it's up. Everyone needs to go like it so that it might get changed!

Also, I plan on running a crapton of dungeons this coming weekend to gear up, so if anyone is looking to run, let me know in ls chat!

EDIT: Beta post on increasing linkshell size.

Edited, Aug 19th 2013 12:15pm by BartelX


There's a cap on the number of members you can have? Are you serious? That's stupid as ****. Good thing they're looking into fixing that.


Yeah I can see the limit because you have to be listening for everyone who's in the LS, and that list could get kinda crazy and bog down the Send and Receive.

I think we should start two Zam free companies, one with an EST lean and one with a PST lean. Even if the ls fills up, that would still give all Zameleons homes. Plus, we could compete with each other and talk mad trash on the forums!

A big shout out to all the linkshell members. I had a GREAT time mixing it up. And wow, 2 fisherman helped me
get the fish I needed to level Alchemy and Culinary. So generous.

Dungeon runs were awesome with the linkshell!! I did 2 with our linkshell and 4 with random peeps. What a difference with
linkshell members. Very grateful to you all.

(On a side note, out of 6 runs only 1 run had armor I could use and I ended up getting several pieces.)

So thanks Zam for making a place where people can come and mingle. Good times!

You really did rake in the drops that run. Everything went smoothly during it.

I really enjoyed the linkshell as well. Like Bartel brought up, I hope they expand the LS size. We're definitely going to hit the cap on members sooner rather than later.


Right? The Universe is very interesting. Out of six runs that was the only one I got stuff from, but WOW.




I agree that the universe work in a very mysterious way. I did around 2 dozens run with LS mate and without on my cnj. Around the 20th, I had nothing to show for it except one earring. (thanks to all the arcanist out there). But the last 3 I got Acolyte robe, feet and hand. On the last 3 runs...

We could also do the opposite and have a giant, all encompassing free company with EST and PST sub-linkshells. That way we could pool all our accomplishments and such regardless of timezones. We could use the linkshells to schedule more time centric events. This would also prevent people on variable time schedules from having to commit to one particular FC.

I think you should be good to go. They were trying to funnel people into the new servers by closing a bunch of the other ones. They added a good five or so to the NA/EU data center.



I wonder if the 'player' amount has been inflated because we got to create 8 characters per account.

Oh, and there are the mult-boxers. They took over Grandina mobs.

I'm sure it reaches quite a few, but if you add up to 6 LS's with no limits, the amount of data coming through could be massive. I'm not justifying limits on LS's, it sounds like they're looking at it, and 128 is disappointingly low. I'm hoping it can be fixed.

Good ideas. For me, I want the option to be with est and pst players.

I haven't seen any mention of it yet. The only decent article I could find about them is this one. Since they didn't take a screen shot of the members section, it isn't all that much help.

If there is a limit, I'm going to assume it's going to be quite a bit bigger than it is for linkshells. Since you can have a whole bunch of LSes compared to only one FC, my guess is that they'll be much more lenient in terms of roster size.

I think you're right. Adding that to my google search popped up this post on reddit saying the same thing. A bunch of the other results also state this.

It's great everyone in the Zam community got together for this LS.

I was a part of a similar group when 1.0 launched, but from the old Core website. As such, I'm firmly planted in Balmung now, or I'd have jumped into Ultros to add to the tomfoolery and general all around awesomness.

If the FC limit is that big, then it would make sense to split the linkshell by east/west and have a giant free company!

Yep, makes sense to me. Actually, it would probably be better that way anyways, as we can just buy 1 giant mansion for the entire ZAM community and everyone can access it through the Free Company. It also makes sense considering there will be quests and leves associated with Free Companies, so that way everyone will have the option to participate if they want to and it will give us the largest pool to pull from.

The big question is, what do we call our Free Company? Do we also go with Karma Zameleons? I really do love that name.

Yes, that was a darn good run for you. Thanks for keeping things smooth and the aggro on the tank. ^^

Admittedly less to do for a CNJ, but that just means everyone was doing their jobs properly.

Synapsis

PS One of the replies to the " expand the LS " post is that we can do 500 in the Free Company, which helps the space issues.. For now.
