So what's gonna happen? There are obviously more ZAM people wanting to join but there are only a handful of spots available in the LS.


You are going to have to decide whether you are exclusive to Zam and wear the colors (free company), or just treat it like an association (linkshell). The advantages to exclusivity are that you will have access to group with all the really dedicated folks in the Zam LS (again, a really great group) and the disadvantage to just being in the linkshell is realizing that it will likely be split up to avoid size constraints (and you get access to less players). It appears that the setup offers more incentive to exclusivity.

Just to further elaborate on this, here is some more info on Free Companies that was posted in a thread on the general beta forums:
Quote:

Gotta agree with just using a company. You get a relatively flexible management interface and can set it up however you want. The default hierarchy is set up exactly like a linkshell, with a leader, "sackholders", and ordinary members. If you don't want a fancy/strict guild hierarchy, just don't add any ranks, and give all the permissions (such as inviting) to the lowest rank. And make the company chest/bank full access for all members. Back in Phase 3 we just used all the ranks to give people humorous titles for fun. They're honestly just like linkshells, but better.

The only "drawback" is that your members can only be in one free company. But it sounds like your group are possibly already a community from another game, and will want to stick together anyway.

The fee is only something like 15-25k, too, don't worry about the set up fee.


So we don't have to make it all structured and ordered, we can still keep it casual and keep everyone on the same footing. I think this is the ideal solution to our problems if SE doesn't raise the cap on linkshells, which I don't think they will by the time we are full.


That sounds like a good setup.

If we do decide to have multiple linkshells here is an option to having several chat windows.

Making a new chat window:

Click the plus sign below the chat window
Name the new tab
Use the gearbox below the chat window to assign text to the new window
Remember you can change the color of the text in settings. Since you can be in upto 8 Linkshells at once (/l, /l2, /l3, etc) changing their color is helpful.

There's been discussion in another thread to go with a ZAM Free Company that has capacity for well over 500 members..

And we could have access to FC housing for ZAM and sharing of materials, etc. via the housing chests.


And it would even be harder to get a free company to 500 because it is exclusive.


So we should do both... the LS for folks who want to join other FC's, and the FC for everyone who just wants to be part of the Zam community..

I'd be willing to make the FC if it's all right with everyone. Since I already have most of you on my friends list, it would be easy to send out invites. The only thing I'm wondering is... it says you have to be level 25 to make an FC, does that mean you have to be level 25 to JOIN an FC? That would be rather frustrating if so.

I can say with 100% certainty you do not need to be 25 to join..

Just to make it. I was spam-invited to one in P3 and it worked just fine, and I never got to 25.

You need to be 25 to make one I believe, not to join.

Edit: and it was 15,000 gil to buy.

Unless they changed it from Phase 3, you just have to be in the game. I made an alt to play with friends during p3 and was invited at lv1 to the FC. Again, I can't say if they changed this, but I felt my experience was relevant.

That's fine. As Wint and Hairspray said, it's just for making an FC. When you make the FC, send me a tell, and I'll help chip in. You shouldn't have to pay for the whole thing by yourself.

I'll pay, I have about 2000 gil on my guy I seriously have no use for.
