Once you level whm that kind of happens especially if you are good at it. Mot many people what to play.. In FFXI that was all I got too do too... I have a pretty good leveled BRD and how many times to I get to play it with the FC?


Honestly I just don't think that is the case with this game. I have 4 jobs leveled but I main SCH and I don't think I'm bad at it by any means, but if I say I want to DPS then I get to DPS. Often times I can't play my SCH in FC runs because I want to let other people come along who like to heal as well. If you had wanted to use your bard in FC content then I feel all you needed to do was to speak up. I think the only one putting expectations on you is yourself most likely. I missed out on the FC coil runs in the past because the group was almost always full, but I did sign up as a healer because that's what I'm used to and I like doing. Never have I healed coil for the FC until the friday static was over really. I got the runs done myself, yes, but that isn't the point I'm making.

I am just being honest.



First of all I can't quite comprehend what you're trying to say here. You're available thursday and what? So you would or wouldn't want organized higher leveled content? You went from saying you don't want a static, to stating ... you do? Or did you just not like how the static was doing specifically that you don't want? I can get back on top of organizing things more since I haven't really been doing that because I was gone for 2 months or so(computer issues), and then came back. I've also been really busy lately with work -and- school so there's that as well.

I agree with you that yes, we are a casual free company. But yes, I also think there's enough people interested in the harder content as well for us to be able to get it done. I don't ever plan on leaving the free company, but I understand if you want to. We are quite casual(as much as I hate that word after playing competitive Smash Bros for forever), and when I say that it doesn't mean we're incapable of clearing harder content.


I never said I don't want a static.. The whole post is about doing it as a static. I said I don't want a Friday night static.
I never mentioned leaving the fc I meant taking people from outside the FC to fill static spots if need be.
I guess you were not around when our Friday night static fell apart so you are missing a few points I am taking about... And we didn't have enough serious people to do the content and because of it we lost a few people.... We have allot of good players to do harder content but having good players that want to do it or put in the time is another story.

Yeah guaranteeing I can be there on x day at y time for z hours is just not going to be something I can do any longer. It's got nothing to do with whether or not I WANT to do it. I'd love to say I can dedicate a few hours a week to this like before. I have to decide what's more important: my career/future or whether or not my FC gets past some content. I counsel caution when placing expectations on others before you really ask them what's going on.

That is fine and understandable and you fit my example of a good player that does not have the time.... Not everyone has the time or even wants too do this hard content.. You also remember the issues trying to get enough people that were geared and played the higher content together for coil before buffs.

I play allot once summer is over, well if there is content available and there really has not been much.. I had to slow down allot with all that is happening, but most of it is over now when Sandy gets back on Friday... Still summer though and we should be able to get through turn 5 with buffs by the end of summer.. 1 through 3 area a joke now. Have not tried 4 with buffs yet....I also slowed down due too content not being there and I had got too as far as the FC could go with the people we have. Clearly we were not going to beat turn 5 and titan EX at that point and it was getting painful trying. I know you knew how that felt, not too mention how nearly impossible they were, nothing but a wall too slow people down..

But when fall is here and I am back to playing full time I want to get through 6 to 10 and I want to beat all the primals ex I have not beat.

Everyone plays at their own pace and that is fine and if we dont have the people in the FC at that level that want to do this we can fill with people outside the FC...

i dont know what all happened w/yall's last coil static,as u said some good ppls left around that time,not saying im good,but i was one that left around that time.yeah u are hitn nail on coffin w/hard to find a static and keep 1 nash.monday group has met 2 weeks in row and made good progress.since i've rejoined zam i've worked to get any and all t4 clears so they can start on t5 and pretty much all fc has ruda ex clears.ppls do have diff time they can play that why getn a static is hard to do.that why i tried to offer a 2nd group for thurs or fri for ppls that didnt get chance fro monday group.if u wanna try set up a diff time for a coil group any1 is more than welcome.i was just trying to extend hand to help get things rolling for more ppls.from post u said kezia did good job coordinating your old group,maybe try to talk to kez in game see if they have interest for another group.just some suggestions.not trying to stir up bad blood or anything in fc,just want to see more ppls that want to clear end game content have the chance.and on that as a final note THANK YOU,DRIVE THRU!

I think it went downhill really fast after I left the group/fc, it wasn't because of the group as we rocked each and every night we were in there but the time frame in which we were raiding,

* 11-11:30 pm est start time on friday (was only day until we tried to get more in on Saturday and Sunday)
* Lack of raiding days, it was only 1 to begin with and tried to get more in but members couldn't be on so no go there.

I joined a new static/fc when 2.2 hit due to better hours and raiding days. (9pm MWF)

Is Kezia even still playing the game? Haven't see him in ages, not since he took that long vacation. I'm not in any static right now so my time is mostly free except when I put together a raid to work on Coil - Gotten T7 down to 10% so far.

If anyone needs a video guide this one is MUCH better than Mr. Happy's 30+ minute Turn 5 Guide. It's my personal favorite, plus she has a pleasant voice(and it's only a ten minute guide, but super helpful):
