I sent SN a PM so I could chat with him 1 on 1 without spamming up CDG's thread.
Woblex is a perfect example of why I was so dissatisfied with my experience in Imagine. For the one person that actually cares about all this "drama", I'll briefly explain that night.
I went 4 days straight without being able to find a party. On the fourth day there was a "vet" chick that was leveling her WAR and was at level 3, requesting a PLer. Frankily, if you need a PLer as a level 3 WAR then you should go do your homework. She claimed how tough it was to level her WAR and I stated that I hadn't found a party in 4 days, so I think I'm a bit worse off. Maybe an hour later she complained that her PLer didn't know how to PL. Already realizing how pathetic she is, I tied in my bad luck to her conversation again. Eventually a couple LS members decided to talk and gave me "tips" that were pretty pathetic: get used to it, welcome to FFXI, we can't get you a pt, maybe you should go play WoW, and etc. Honestly, who would be happy about their LS members being such jerks? I was told that you can find people to group up with you from this LS pretty easily, but I only used that option as a last resort. So the conversation continued and became a minor argument. One member logged on, saw the dilemma, and actually gave some helpful tips. One or two other LS members that were paying attention apologized for attacking me, finally understanding what the problem was and why things got so out of control. I also apologized to those specific members and things seemed fine.
Over the next 2 or 3 days, I would occasionally ask if anyone wanted to group up in Valkurm and everyone would just ignore me, which is what they mostly did since the first day I joined. I got an offer from a nice guy that I grouped with to join his LS. I declined at first but eventually took the offer and was pleased with my decision. They had a lot more vets than Imagine but they're not quick to attack their own members.
Contact me when you can, SN if you really did want to try and figure everything out. I look forward to hearing from you.
Sorry about all the spam, I hope you find a good LS. =)
