I too had a bad experience with Keston; as did my old linkshell. (Ended up kicking him from it)

However, I wouldn't say particularly that Kes is a bad player, just very shrewd and has a tendency for rudeness.

Just as a warning to players, just to be careful what you say around him, and he has been known to leave parties in a wink.


Anela.. you seem to be talking about what you know nothing about. I had to replace you once in a party when you started cursing and being rude to everyone because of a simple suggesting. And you said if we dont like it get a new f'in PLD... well, i did. And when you did get replaced, you started cursing and being profane (and still i didnt return your profanity). You've had urself spoiled by getting a bucnh of stuff done for you and expect your **** kissed because your the PLD? SOrry, but I recieved /tells from party members about your rudeness and apparent knee-jerk reactions. And you actually tried to use "I'm a girl", as an excuse for your behaviour.

And If you're refering to the instance when I decided to leave a party because the RDM wasnt refreshing me... Get your facts right. I gave fair warning i wasnt gonna put up with it (i was party-leader/BLM65 and just spent 2 hrs forming this party, and was in no mood to tolerate it, or argue with him about it either, as i already mentioned it +7 times) and I was going back to jeuno and they should replace me, then warped out when everything was at a stop. Just as I warped, a crawler popped and the people they got agro from it... the THF mentioned it in our LS chat and the LS leader who was just dying to find a reason to kick me as I wasnt a "yes man" to him, did. And of course then started spreading this around in his bias. Alot of players in this game are very lemming-like, they'll accept anything that someone tells them and hate on such behalf for no other reason that to not disagree with a certain individual. I've seen LS leaders be complete jerks to some members and still have some of these same people suckin up to them. I know how to stand up for myself, regardless of who it is against.

I partied with your Galka BLM @ level 50 in Crawler's nest. You learned to do ancient MB and since you were galka, could take a few punches XD Also partied a few times in gustav tunnel 55-57ish. I remember. I laughed at Galka BLM first, but it was fun ^^

Hello Everyone~

Just wanted to throw a few good men and women up here for everyone to see! I'm not going to list people who don't do a good job in parties or otherwise -- if they're not going to do their job right then they don't deserve any kind of recognition, whether good or bad! So... Here we go!

GODJEB - One of my best friends IG. He's a Hume 34THF/WAR. Always stuck by my side through bad and good parties! Reliable, needs to work on his SATA just a little, but he's getting better all the time!

TAKENO - Another one of my personal favorite people to play with. He's an Elvaan 56RDM/WHM. Always does his job well. Balances his MP well between light healing, light nuking, and refreshing -- even saves MP for a Refresh on my 56DRK/THF! Very reliable and has helped me to no end lately.

ASHANTIL - A good Hume 53WHM/<cannot remember his sub - I think he changes back and forth between BLM and SMN>, and a good personal friend of mine. Been through some hard times lately, and if anyone needs a WHM for an Experience Party, then go with him! Another lifesaver!

INFAURRRIA - Don't think I need to say much about her, since she's on this list multiple times... Her excellent reputation stands above many others out there!

ALEXANDERDRAVYN - <See Infaurrria's remarks>. Also, seeing as he's about five levels higher than me all the time, I never get to play with him! /cry - He's a great MNK!

Well that's it for now - I'm at work ATM and cannot remember other names. I'll post more in the future!

-Hieikitty 56DRK/THF / 35THF/NIN when I feel like it!

Kes I realize you can, I was just merely stating my experiences with you. Obviously you do have the tendency to do whatever you like within party, considering I was not the first to say so.

I realize that I can get into moods, but normally I appologize afterword. I am senstive sometimes. Please let me know when I am, and I shall try my best not to let moods get to me when I'm partying.

But I shall continue to speak of what "I know nothing about."

Oh, and by the way. I AM a girl. I HAD my period. And, I don't know what makes you think I'm spoiled. I suppose I am, but I'd like to hear why you think that way.

You're right if doing what i like includes:
1. Not putting up with a RDM who doesn't do his job after being repeatedly reminded, and exercising my right to excuse and leave this party (which i spent 2hrs of my time forming)
2. Not putting up with a PLD who starts to verbally abuse myself and the party members (sorry, but being rude and offensive has no excuse...man , woman, or child)
3. Not put up with being called a moron for making sure i was well equiped to do my job (who would?)

I invite you to find any occasion where I have just up and mistreated anyone or done anything unsavory for no reason.

Keston, I sent a tell to you in lower jeuno saying "Hello, I've seen you on my ls' forums, and it's nice to meet you in game"...AND YOU DIDN'T ANSWER!

Keston the thing about you warping on the party wasnt because you left with or without warning, if you wanna leave a party full of people thats fine but do NOT warp out with an LS mate in the PT sitting there saying WTF! thats where you messed up, but i guess being nice to the people your supposed to do stuff with daily is out of the question for you King Keston.

And for the record i dont think anyone kissed Drakkan's ass, you just didnt want to help do anything because SE didnt give BLM drops from HNM, well send them an email **** about it, cuz id love to be able to do things without a blm all the time.

(no offense Mandos, Malto, Chinook, Vish you guys rock)

Yes, you are the THF in the party. And you're over reacting is responsible for the whole ruckus. You were just looking for someone to blame. I'm supposed to stay in a bad party because of an LS member? I don't think so. I gave fair warning I wasn't staying... I didn't just warp out in the middle of a fight. And yes, you guys kiss Drakkan's **** like it tastes good or something.

And I'll call you a big liar for claiming i didn't help do anything. I helped with tons... hell, even left xp parties on a moment's notice to come help LS members with some rare/ex items (of which same LS member was cursing at me very nasty things when i was in pty with him on a Fenrir run a while ago)... which goes to show how mindless some are. Drakkan told him to hate, so he hated.

Might also want to mention what happened to this "HNM" LS, and where it is now... so much for said leadership.

I'm sooooo sorry, my dear detective! I was at work when I put that post up on my lunchbreak. I didn't mention a LOT of people that I should have. But, knowing you as well as i do, you won't be too **** at me.

So, here's a few more:

YURAMESHI: Oh, my dear detective, will we never get to do the Triad ever again? ...Come on, you know... THA THING! ;-) Nowadays, everyone knows him as the Paladin, Misao. EXCELLENT player - knows his jobs inside out, and always reliable! Another of the first great friendships I've had in Final Fantasy XI. /salute! BTW, hurry up and catch up with me so I have a reliable meatshield!

ANNIHILATOR: Anni is the leader of my current Linkshell, and has leveled many jobs within Vana'diel. I can always count on him in an experience party as an excellent, fast-draw puller. Puts parties together faster than even I can! Also, as I sat for a full year at Rank 2, he and some LS friends helped me kill that damned Dragon and Seeker! /hurray!

NIAKOHR: Many people may know Nia from various experience parties, or from my former Linkshell. I haven't been able to play with this killer WHM for a while, but I think there will be more fun to had in the future. One of many that helped me with the Frigicide mission! YAAY! Loved it when he /slapped the one person who didn't get the final ???!

I'll probably add more later!

-The Flying Shadow!

Ivellios~You ROCK! /poke I partied with him and Lasmel a few times, I dearly wish we were all able to perma ; ;

Star is 100% awesome sweetness, I'm sure she wouldn't mind being your mentor. She'd probably be flattered.

Paco (Apocalypse) is just plain awesome all around. Even with two 75 job and one more on the way, he never pulls that Higher Than Thou act. He's just a good natured, laid back guy...who also happens to own stuff x2.

FTR: Anelita (Anela >.>) is one of the kindest, most paladin-hearted paladins I've met in the game. She will jump in front of an angry orc to save a mage. She will jump inside a burning mog house to save a kitten. She is an ex-LS mate (way back in the day) who brought only good experiences, then and now.

"Why do you call me Anelita?"
"I dont know, it sounds spicy"
" *lick* I'm not spicy..."

I'd also like to mention Anela. I never partied with her ; ; (my loss there). Hopefully some day I will though. But due to certain circumstances and issues that happened with people I know in the game (relationships, friends, etc.) I ended up having a long talk with her once before, and some short talks thereafter. And just from talking to her I could tell she was an amazingly nice person. Real kind hearted, sweet, caring and willing to help people out with RL problems. And there's no doubt in my mind that the same goes for how she is in the game and in parties. I feel that she would do anything to help people out no matter the situation.

Best:

MNK: Blosm - Very friendly, very organized, and likes to have fun but at the same time do a great job. KRT has always been fun with them and always succesful in exp/hr. Blosm has also THF + RDM to 75 and they are amazingly equipped ( I envy you Blosm hahahaha ) Props to Blosm^^

WAR: Amatsuchjin - Awesome guy, friendly, has great equipment and plays his job well, what else can i say? xD

PLD: Bardok - "Perma'd" with me from 55-73 on my MNK.. great PLD, funny attidude but serious player and strives to do his job best. We have been best friends pretty much ever since we both started to play and had tons of great times on the game. He is one of the main reasons i still play - people make the game fun.

NIN: Vinnie - Permad with him till 75 with my BLM, Vinnie is an awesome Ninja and kicked **** at holding hate (pre-patch) haha not sure if things have changed but I doubt they haven't.

BST: Hiyo!! - Tarutaru for life.

Although the list isn't complete, this is what I can think off the top of my head, if I have time ill fill the rest in =)

Saturday I had an outstanding party with these folks:


CACTUS << DRK (silent but deadly)
SAIIA << SMN (status parameter happiness guru)
ARKANGEL << RDM (liked to scare me with convert)
CELITH << NIN (this guy was a hate machine!)
AURARA << THF (fun fun fun!) :)

So a shoutout to you 5...the experience flowed like mad, but more importantly it was just a fun group of people to spend a few saturday hours with.

Ahkow- OMG! this has to be the best PLD i know (sorry dark ><) not only that but he's the guy that FORCED me to start dynamis lol he's a great guy and has lots of good info and knowledge

kazekuro- lol taru mnk >< little **** is good! He's a great guy very helpful and has a great sence of humor.

On the flip-side of having a good party the other night, I had a pretty disasterous one last night which left me with a lot less hair and more dents in my desk than I'd like.

Ultimately, I attribute it to two players which I will likely avoid partying with again, but I'm not really sure I wish to say "worst players" as they may have just been having a bad day (I know I've had them). After careful thought and consideration though, at the very least I'd like to point it out (if it's a pattern but nobody ever talks about it...then the pattern will not be realized).
================
First off the folks I would party with again:

Mikika - THF and IMHO a very competent one. I had partied with him the night prior and he had no problem putting so much hate on our Taru PLD against the same mobs in the same exact location that there was 0 chance of me peeling it off him even if I wanted to. I felt very comfortable not having shadows up after he SATA'd the hate off of me. In addition, depending on which gear food setup I'm using, it's consistently a tug-of-war between me and him for most damage dealt. It bothers me to no end that we couldn't get him his level. :(

Babyboyy and Babygirrl - SMN and WHM husband and wife combo. I've been in multiple parties with them (I jokingly call them my static when I talk to them) and although we don't rank in amazing experience in an hour like I have with some parties we do move forward and I can rely on them to do their jobs. There are some adjustments that I think would make us more compatible and efficient, but they are just nuances which can be overcome if we get some time to strategize better.
================
Now the members of the party I'd prefer to avoid at this point:

Schmidt - I'm sorry man, but I can comfortably say that without SATA, I have more reliable hate on me...and I'm not comfortable with my ability to keep hate the past 4 levels, so that's saying a lot.

I'm hoping you were just having a bad day...or drunk...etc. In the event that it's how you normally conduct yourself, here are a few tips.

a. Move to your position and stand there. When you do have hate on you, *DO NOT* run off to some random spot on the camp...especially when the melee are spamming that their TP is ready for use. Multiple times WS could not go off when planned because the mob was suddenly running away...in a random direction ("you cannot see the Helm Beetle"). Sometimes the mob was going after the mages....but many times the mob was chasing you (again, there was no apparent need for it when it was happening). As the tank...YOU control the mob...not the other way around.

b. If you're going to go to an area with mobs with silencing moves...carry Echo Drops. Hell, carry Echo Drops regardless. Fortunately, that's what I did and when the entire group got silenced I was able to take over and you were survived what was certain death.

c. When the WHM goes to pick up one person at the telecrystal...

c.1 - Do not suggest the whole group goes. The larger the group, the larger the stealth liability.

c.2 - Do not decide to tag along without the appropriate stealth meds. Carrying Silent Oils and Prism Powders is not only easier on the mages, but reliably lasts longer than sneak and invisible (not to mention doesn't put them in harms way when you're wearing in a tight spot).

d. When there is an established puller...do not take it upon yourself to...provoke...the first mob you see. That was particularly bad for a number of reasons. First, the puller might (and was) pulling a different mob at that moment. Second, how is the THF going to SATA hate on to you when it's facing you? Finally, you're wasting MP (either yours or the healers) immediately in the fight on IT++ mobs. Shadows = No hits while waiting for SATA = No MP needed that could be better utilized later in a tight fight.

e. Don't wait until over an hour into exping to equip your helm.

f. Read party chat.

g. When a member states that they are afk, they are probably afk. Spamming party chat with "Name <call>" 6 or 7 times will not make them magically return to their keyboard. All it does is annoy the folks who aren't afk.

h. When you're in a party and teleport to a zone that has monsters you can't quickly fight solo...do not provoke one before everyone has loaded into the zone. Especially do not do this when there are 2 of them, and they are linking. We survived it however it was a lot closer than you know (90% of it I was solo fighting the 2nd antican so it wouldn't destroy our Taru mage line supporting you).

i. If you zone before the DD, THF, and SMN during a tough fight which requires retreat (while the DD, THF, and SMN try to keep it occupied), you're not living up to the heroic example a paladin represents. That's more of an opinion than a "do or don't" I suppose.

j. When there is an MP shortage and you /tell me asking me to take over hate, do not pop invincibility once I provoke. I'm not a miracle worker, and when it wears you will still have that hate for long enough for you to get eaten. If anything, allow me to use my shadows as a small buffer before you pop it and get the hate back. That short period of time could make or break the fight. If you had emergency juice on hand then you would've had at least a little mp after the 40+ seconds it would take for my shadows to disappear and then your invincibility to wear.

k. When hate is bouncing around like a yo-yo as it is...do not insist that the mages debuff *SOONER* than they already are. If hate is that much of a problem already...try establishing hate *THEN* having the party throw in those things that **** the mob off royally. The reverse doesn't work particularly well.

I think that's all for you Schmidt...and I apologize if you take offense to this, but these are just some of the things which were a factor in the overall success in the party.



Spaul - BLM

Ironically, you were largely responsible for the reason you eventually left for. One reason you gave was the hate management, and between "Dancing Schmidt" and you pulling hate before SATA could be done...yes, hate management was a nightmare. You didn't stick around as long as Schmidt did, so I have less to say....as a matter of fact only 2 things really come to mind.

Some tips for you:

a. Put away the scythe. According to the parser, the most you contributed with a scythe in a battle was 27. The rest of the time it was usually 0, with a few 18-ish contributions. Overall your damage wasn't even close to mine or Mikika's (but you left so early that the sample size isn't big enough for me to really comment on your DD abilities).

b. Do not do things which cause you to get hate before SATA can be initiated on the tank. I'm not sure what you were doing to pull hate immediately when the fight started, but if you're standing to the side of the mob, and it turns to face you after I provoke, hit it with a big axe for more damage than you did an entire fight with your scythe, and cast shadows (while waiting for Schmidt to stand still behind the mob), then the THF simply can't SATA the hate on to the tank. Had the SATA been able to land consistently on the tank, there would have been much less hate bouncing. A little early discipline would have made a huge difference.

c. When the Warrior sacrafices his life to allow the rest of the party to get to safety, do not insult him by going "D2 last call!" and warping back to your homepoint. Yes, it was a disaster, and even Schmidt (who's courage I've questioned already) stuck around. Given that I feel the inability for us to get a SATA on the tank....which was a direct cause of you turning the mob to face you before it could be done...a minor adjustment (aka you waiting until SATA was initiated before taking action on the mob) in strategy would have made a world of difference.


Again Spaul, like Schmidt it's nothing personal...but certainly things that should be taken into consideration.
================

In closing, I like to think I don't live in a glass house. I'm sure there are ways that I could be more effective in my job as a Warrior and would be more than willing to hear them from folks I've partied with in the past...even moreso if there are things that I do that aren't good. I can't make adjustments unless I know what to adjust. ;)

No need to apologize for disagreeing with me. That is your right.

Perhaps he was having an "off day" (I know I've had some of those). There is simply no excuse though to just ditch a party like that...especially when the reason you give was a direct result of your own actions. Especially when a minor adjustment on his part might've fixed the issue. Warping away doesn't fix issues.

Keston - Sorry took a while to reply im away from the game for a while and had no internet to look, i did not kiss drakkans **** and as mandos said the LS fell apart because of that BS, but i dont care, i dont talk to anyone from that LS except for a few that are either in my LS now or cett, anela, and a few others.

i didnt over-react, if i hadn't been in the same LS as you i wouldnt have said much about it other than id still think you suck.

all in all i hope you find a LS that lets you be an **** about the drops, beause SE finally gave blm some nice gear, that rostrum pumps NM is a blast.

*flattered* /blush

Wow, ummm... Hiei, Truly thanks so much for your words of praise and encouragement!! It means a hella great deal to me, really!! *^_^*

I don't exactly do what I do for the fame or notoriety, but now having been mentioned by several ppl on here, I'm like O_O lol.

I guess I'm moving up in the world!! \^_^/

But in all seriousness, thanks to all who've made mention of me on their "Best" lists here so far (most recently Hieikitty and Truly). It's certainly an honor and makes my time and efforts to help others (when I can) feel so much more worthwhile. ^_^ Compliments such as those definitely keep me focused on becoming an even better person and player with each new day I log in. If I'm developing a reputation and becoming better-known on the server, I'm naturally glad that it's a positive experience.

.....Of course, you do realize how bad this is for my sense of humility? O_o;; LOL j/k

See you all in-game!! /wave

You are by far one of the best DRKs I've ever partied with... *bows courteously* It is a shame that you will be quitting although I've said my share of harsh words out of anger and hurt. And love...
>.> Alex your ego is just getting too big. *slaps alex's ego* mwahahahahha! Hieikitty ^_^ you are also one of the better people that I have partied with <3 I hope to do so again soon. ^^;

I don't have a lot of folks I can really list here... but here goes anyway.

--Good--
Keston--Some of you might think he'sn XYZ, but he's been absolutely wonderful in all my dealings with him. Seems like you guys lost out when he got booted from your LS.

Ashantil--Great guy. No, wait, he's fantastic. If he didn't have to work during my typical play time, we'd be attatched at the hip.

Drakeikari--Best pld I've partied with. He can get a lil' grumpy at times (^^;), but he does his job incredibly. In all my partying with him, the only person who's pulled hate from him is a BLM with an overly strong love of Freeze.

Donaldduck--Really great guy. Can't stress enough how cool he is, tho he's been wicked stressed out lately.

There's plenty of people I know who I could mention, but These four have largely stood out as of late. If I didn't mention you, don't take it badly. <3 ya all


--Bad--
Only one person I've had trouble with lately, and that was Hamehameha. Might've been a bad day for him, but if so, it was a REALLY bad day. As a lvl 50 WHM, he spent most of the time in the party throwing Thunder and Aeroga (Pulling extra mobs multiple times), and was being very bossy. Told me not to cure the DRG (He wanted him dead 'cause he didn't voke for the SATA). That's a big no-no in my book. Boot someone if you have to, but as long as they're in your party and *trying*, you can't hold back healing.


Enough of my ramblings.

I have a few more players...
Keston: He invited me to his party when I was lvling NIN, he's an awesome leader and a good player from what I've seen. I saw the threads, etc. above and decided to put in a good word from my experience with him.
Veruna: Another awesome player, lvled with her SAM, we made an awesome team. I'd love to party with the two of you again sometime, if you need a tank ^^ look me up <3

I posted on here a long while back, but I have a few additions that deserve to be recognized outside of a simple edit to my previous post.

Zenzetzue: one **** of a nice guy, always willing to help, and probably the best PLD I have ever seen in a party.

Shaila: also a fantastic person, always willing to help, and always knows how to make someone feel better.

Donzo: co-leader of the MobilityAndPower linkshell. One of the best WHMs I've ever had the pleasure of partying with, and always willing to help when he's not making millions goldsmithing.

Pita: other co-leader of MAP, and also always willing to help, even when no one asks for it. Great MNK and a great friend.

Aphelidia: another good WHM and great friend. So what if death seems to follow her around everywhere, she's still worth partying with any day of the week.

Valarian: great DRK who is always around when something needs to die, or even when multiple enemies need to die, just call on the DRK prince.

these and the rest of the MobilityAndPower linkshell are the greatest people I have ever met. I'm a bit pressed for time at the moment, but to those of you in the LS, keep up the good work.
