    Default Ok, so I've decided on a game but need people to play with

    I've been trying to find a freaking MMORPG that has people that are NOT anti-party (over 98% of them are anti-partyl) for example: FFXI is a perfect MMORPG that people party in (almost always able to get a party immediately regardless of level) Whereas iRO (and pretty much every other MMO in existance) have people who do not party at all until almost max level (half the time not even then). So, I've found one that I can play on my current system, that seems to have a semi-decent party friendly community. However, I'm looking for other people to play with me. The game I'm after is:

    FlyFF

    That is the only F2P MMORPG that has a party friendly community (I'm giving up on a mature community as long as I can get people to party with) and is not open world PvP. (PWI has a party friendly commuity but has open world PvP starting at level 30 same goes for Rappelz)

    Now I know exactly how most of you here feel about FlyFF (I've been a lurker on these boards since around 2005) but I have little to no choice in the matter as long as I want to play MMORPGs (FYI I have played pretty much all the newer ones too: I'm in AION beta (well was before my other computer blew up) I have played DDO since it was released, I've played WAR and pretty much all the other ones, and I can safely say that the ONLY newer MMORPGs that have a party friendly community are WoW (albeit a rather immature one and I hated that game and have no intention of going back (it's been almost 5 years since I quit soooo....)) and DDO (this one was phenominal for a mature community who liked to party with everybody of all levels and skill ranges)

    Anyway, back to the topic title: Anybody want to join me or am I stuck with randomly generated pick up groups?
    "Sslann has been hit for 989MB of critical memory damage by EverQuest2.exe" "Sslann has been killed by EverQuest2.exe!"

    That would be what I say when I play EverQuest II and get the critical error saying "Application has run out of memory when requesting XXXMB of memory"

    ^Agreed.

    Maybe try a private server? There's a pretty popular one out there if you look around. <- Not suppose to talk about private servers here.

    I think florensia was a party friendly game, but movement was pretty choppy, and gameplay seemed very slow.

    Anyways goodluck.

    flyff isnt rly a party game tbh i played for a long time and it was all 2 ppl partners and filling a party for extra exp so i often was in a duo but never with a full party cause the exp was just terrible with that many ppl around unless its changed which i doubt.

    Ok, here's a question: How many of you people bring that mentality I'm reffering to into the MMO world with you? (MMO = console game with more features)

    Because in my honest opinion, that is the exact mentality that 99% of the people I talk to in MMORPGs have. They don't care about interactive cooperation with other real people, I have a few quotes from a few MMORPGs that have stuck with me first being from GuildWars "I'll be honest with you, just use hnh unless you're doing a mission" (for those of you who don't know hnh = Henchmen and Heroes) the second being from EverQuest "Mercs can and will be more of an asset to you than real players" and the last being from iRO "EXP items defeat the purpose of parties and nobody here will party with anyone under 7x anyway"

    On a side note: It seems like people refuse to party unless the devs make it so you MUST party to play the game (FFXI)

    I think dungeon and dragons is a great party game, i'd wait it out my friend, sept 9 is release date, I've only been playing till level 4( im close ok) and the game is all about partying up with people, interacting, it has in game voice chat, people, from my experience are very friendly.

    The problem with DDO is that I no longer have a computer that will run it (and getting a new one is not an option nor will it be for quite a while as I can't afford it hence why I'm resorting to F2P MMORPGs (I would go back to FFXI in a heartbeat but I can't afford it anymore))

    To attemt to prevent any suggestions for MMORPGs that I can't even run I'll list my specs:

    Intel Celeron 2.79GHz processor
    1GB PC3200 400MHz DDR RAM
    BFG GeForce 6200 256MB PCI video card (NOT PCI-E or AGP)
    "Sslann has been hit for 989MB of critical memory damage by EverQuest2.exe" "Sslann has been killed by EverQuest2.exe!"

    This is probably one of the biggest contributing factors to the anti-party populace: You MUST play a support character (healer and/or buffer) to have any hope of being in a party, yet nobody will party with a support class until they have decent support skills (iRO Acolytes will never get a party until they change into a Priest)

    The other big contributing factors I'm noticing is

    A) the devs don't give any incentive to party whatsoever (you get HUGE exp reductions for each person in a party)

    The devs introduce things that contribute to the above problem (Henchmen, Mercenaries etc)

    C) And lastly the forced class problem I mentioned (You MUST play a healer to get into a party) What about people who don't like playing as healers? Aren't games played because they're fun? If you're forced to play a class you hate how is that fun?

    Honestly? I think you could run DDO. And if you want my opinion, you should play Runes of Magic (on a PvE server).

    Flyff is just a game where you grind until the last level. I used to love flyff back in the day (LOVE IT), but really you just grind and grind from monster to monster until you reach the level cap, and rebirth or something into a new class. I have heard horrible things about the recent patch as well.

    I would say give Runes of Magic a try if you can run it. It's really a fantastic game.

    Flyff is terrible. Do your self a favor in the long run and try to convince your self to pick something else.

    Pick something else, eh? Well, if I could find any like-minded people to start a game and stick with it, I would pick a different one, hell I'd play any other MMORPG (provided I could run it decently (med-low or med-high settings)) but therein lies the problem. Nobody else seems to realise that MMOs were created with the aim of people from around the world coming together in one massive world to partake in cooperative gameplay. I have yet to find more than 8 different people who still have this mindframe.

    So, I guess I'll attempt to turn this into a request/discussion hybrid topic by saying:

    If I can find at least 10 different people to play one single F2P MMORPG (that will run on my computer at a decent level (just pushing minimum system requirements does not run decently)) that have the same mindframe as I do, and will stick with it, (I also know exactly how everyone here hypes about a new game then plays it for 2 weeks and quits) I will download and play it with them.

    My prediction is I won't find more than 3 different people with my mindframe let alone any with my mindframe and the other two qualities.
    "Sslann has been hit for 989MB of critical memory damage by EverQuest2.exe" "Sslann has been killed by EverQuest2.exe!"

    That would be what I say when I play EverQuest II and get the critical error saying "Application has run out of memory when requesting XXXMB of memory"

    Wait til THQ's Dragonica Open Beta. I'd party with you then. Otherwise, there are no games currently out that I'm particularly interested in.

    At least flyff there are instances and arenas near towns where you can fight people open pvp without penalty.

    thats the ONLY REDEEMING factor it has going for it.

    It's not grind grind grind grind grind till you die grinding a.k.a maplestory type games.

    If it's that terrible.. The player base should be way below 5million.
    something must be verry apealing to all those people.

    And I am up for playing FLyFF besides Rohan:Blood Feud.

    I wouldn't mind joining your party "game". At the moment I'm only playing Nostale because My friend plays it and, LoL. Nostale seems to just be a my friend and I party, since I'm still low level haven't gotten a guild or anything yet. LoL is just pick me up games, not much chat goes on in the lobby whenever I'm on. I'm mainly playing console games now, but if you can manage to form up a decent amount of people commited to playing a game, I might join; though it also depends on which game. And for FlyFF, I've only gotten to level 13 on the japanese version, so I wouldn't know much about it, though I have heard alot about it from friends and the like of whom I've played with. Though none of what I've heard was good.

    Flyff is one of the best f2p mmos for partying, the system is very simple and effective.

    However the down side to it is that if you actualy want to gain levels you'll have to join a contribution party.

    This requires you to scan the full shout chat for someone offering 2 spots in they're contribution party.

    You then pm the leader of the party and if you were the first one to pm them, you gain a spot for you and your partner.

    When grinding together or simply leeching your exp is pretty much, lets say doubled.

    I'll join you guys, just tell me the name of the server. (don't do lawolf k?)
