So I bought the game when it launched in US and enjoyed it for what it's worth. Sadly it didn't have enough oumph to keep me around for long periods of time. I have kept my account and leveled several jobs to 25. I started playing again at the beginning of the month and found that my original linkshell was destroyed.
Since I joined back up I spent every moment I'm in a town or camp shouting for a new linkshell. I never get a reply, and nobody seems to care. I jumped on the forums to do the proper way of joining a linkshell. So far I was turned down by a linkshell that wants 20+hrs a week of play ***** that i have a job that i work 42+ hours a week + a fiance).
I tried to join a RP linkshell (hell i thought it might be fun, at least i would be playing with people), i got shot down by them because i guess i wasn't creative enough in my application.
What I really want is a LS like i have in ffxi, one that is at least 4-10 members online doing ****. They don't have to be events, just people to chat with, give advice, shoot the ****. This game as a solo player SUCKS!
Since i got back it seems like its 45+ or go home, kinda like ffxi 75+ or abyssea. I'm finding it hard to xp 25+ due to the large xp gap and that there is nobody searching or willing to party.
If you own a linkshell that sounds like something I would like, please let me know. I really want to love this game, but right now it's like a ******* WoW clone with all the soloing ive been doing. (but 10000x worse). I want to play the game with people, like i used to do in 2004 with ffxi.
