Wanted: Most retarded experianceFollow

Now, every once and a while, something happens, something. . . retarded.
This type of thing, when it happens, makes that little piece of you die inside.

Today i had a party like that. Starts and ends with the leader. here's how it went:
Join party, i'm the whm, rest of pt is pld/****** blm thf drk blu
just another day in the dunes.

/wrists #1 we change camp 6 count em, 6 times for no apparent reason. but the pld has the pl so we just keep on trucking

/wrists #2 we (read pt leader) decide to move to qufim isle at level 18. . . three people have never been there before, one has no SJ, pt leader says its ok, and he can worry about a SJ later.

/wrists #3 20 minute argument in qufim isle when we make an honest comment on how a keyboard helps play ffxi, pt leader is arguing against spending the extra $10 for 'such a crappy waste of money'

/wrist finale after about 30 minutes of squeeking by some xp, we get everyone up to 19 and pt leader decides that now would be a great time to form an xp alliance. . . . yes an alliance... in qufim.

i drop party as this was the final straw to an otherwise horrid pt. i stayed in long as i did just to see how bad it could get (i'm a pld main so i guess i'm sadistic [sp?]) and it payed off with the whole alliance thing.

just thought i'd like to share my terrible terrible experiance and am wondering how many other horror stories of misadventures are out there.

edit: sorry didnt see this was in the sch forum, ment to post in the general forum, will repost there.

Only real SCH-related guilt trips I've had have involved having a PLD tank with nobody else in the party capable of refreshing them. Just felt bad for them since I knew it'd make their life harder even with Auto Refresh, a Parade Gorget, and Sanction.

Things can ALWAYS get worse.

I'm sure that if you had stayed, pondering "how can things get any worse?" it would have started to rain. Even in Qufim.

Coming up on SCH I had a pt that was:

BLU THF WAR WHM SCH RDM vs. birds.

The THF was 3 levels higher than anyone else in the pt and afk the entire time. The BLU was afk at first, and the WAR pulled a bird. If you're doing the math, that's 1 DD and 3 healers on birds(No nuking).

He had a SMN PL that he was dual boxing who died part of the way through the fight. At that point he starts screaming at everyone about how we should have been healing the PL. The fight literally takes over 15 minutes, exhausts a SCH, RDM and WHM.

To top it off, the WHM finishes the fight with a Banishga that happens to catch another bird. We're near a zone so I sleep the bird say, "ZONE" and take off. Nobody else follows me and I come back to raise them all.

The whole thing was about an hour long experience for somewhere around 120 xp.

LS member told me about his horrible meriting experience with a pld, who decided pld, thf, blm, blm, rdm, war was a good setup vs BIRDS (the ones that reflect spells).

I told him to gtfo before he lost 10k xp from reraising over and over.

The pld party leader promptly asked me if I wanted to party in order to replace my LS buddy.

I said no. So he spam /tell'd me for the next hour about how my flag was still up when I said no, to which I responded "I'm seeking to gain xp, not lose it"

so, lol. Once i hit lvl 60. i had about 10 parties that were 2-3k an hour parties, and no end in site. So i hit 63 finally, like 5k into lvl. My friend is a melee summoner, uses garuda out full time, predator claws and hastega. So he started a merit pt, and i went anon. I was just curing while he hasted and dd'd. 2 hours later i was 5k into 64 :P i might have to make this a habit, cuz ***** 3k an hour, its ****.

I'd have left at /wrists #2. I think you should have seen the PLD was an inadequate leader from that alone, sticking with him, you sort of brought on the bad party experience on yourself.

Not that it was your fault, but whenever I see players like that in a party, I go.
