Dont Join Methylosyndicate!!Follow

#1 Aug 09 2006 at 9:16 PM Rating: Decent
So in my time as a player on here ive been in a lot of linkshells. Some good some not so good. The most recent one was methylosyndicate and i have some things to say about it. I joined it and at first like all small linkshells they were eager to getmembers in. I recruited a lot om members from my formal linkshell that we wernt ging in the same direction. We did garrisons and we did well, but a few weeks later i started to notice some problems.

Our leader Methylos started to go on a power trip i mean micromanagement out the wazu he literally made the game not fun. Not announcing any formal changes he starts to make rules for garrison stupid ones i may add. Like not being allowed to sub nin for dual weild in garry although war/nin is a PROVEN 20 garrison combo. On the other hand he is a hypocrite. He is allowed to use job combos that are not proven and if he failed oh well "I'm the leader you do what i say." Ok so hes is ignorant ,theyre noob bashers, and have affiliation with gil-sellers and disreputable people on the server. Im saying dont join it hes an elitest and he takes this "game" like its rl.

so is this a vendetta against Methylos or Methylos Syndicate? Both have been around about as long as I have, and have harboured mostly newer players, some unsure about etiquette.. (dont ask me for money. I'll pay for your bus fare if you're stuck, but not your car)

War/nin at 20, proven for what though? maybe if you have stat boosts on each axe/sword and a high damage mainhand/speedy offhand but other than that it wont work that well (aside from an extra hit). what happened to WAR/MNK anyway?

Wow, I can't believe he's talking about the same person, or even the same shell.

I really hope people from the shell don't bother reading this like I have. I’ve had this shell for ages, and I mean ages and Meth is one of the most decent, upright blokes I have ever met on this game. The syndicate is all about helping out new players, with rank missions, promys, AF, Genkai, and commonly stuff like SJ items. It has always allowed new players in with the only rule being that they should remain polite and friendly while in the LS.

Garrison is one of the main events and the Syndicate is very experienced at them, particularly level 20 cap one's. How can you call it unfair when every member who attends is guaranteed 1 item each, at random. No favouritism at all, not even for leaders. I also dunno where you got the idea that war/nin is proven at 20, I mean you don't even get utsusemi and dual wield 1 does nothing for your delay, you can argue that one on the warrior forums. Just don't tell them where you got it from otherwise there might be a witch hunt.

The guys not arrogant, but when you have 18 level 20 people, some fresh for the dunes you need a "leader". Especially if he knows what he's talking about it makes things allot smoother, and I can assure you Meth does know what he's on about.

Futhermore how can The Syndicate be noob bashers when the majority of our members are new players, all of which receive regular help from higher level members? I also lol'd pretty hard at affiliation with gilsellers bit. I mean what gilsellers, how about some names and how exactly did we help them? Only once did a suspected gilseller have access to the shell, he was questioned and his pearl was broken, by me, end of story. After this situation the number of sac holders was reduced so that we could control who was invited better, which is perfectly fair no?

I can't say I really know you all that well Joel, but you certainly need to get your facts right before you brandish a good shell with lies. But isn't that exactly why people post on this server forum, for the drama I guess. Well, I’ve said my bit because I was pretty shocked myself to see a post like this, but if anyone feels they would like to join The Syndicate then please let me know ^^

I assume there's more to the story... like Eviljoel stole Meth's girlfriend forcing her to cheat on him or Eviljoel burned down his house... Just not something so extreme. xD

For me, I wouldn't really look too far into this thread, unless Meth himself was here. There's 2 sides to every story, and something like this is bound to be one of the more biased stories, made to personally make the LS and Meth himself look bad.

For those of you who might be remotely interested in "The other side of the story." I have decided to post exactly such. Eviljoel has participated in several Garrisons hosted by the shell and before each one I requested the job format WAR/MNK from Eviljoel. In every instance only deliberate refusal was offered in return. Please note he has a properly leveled MNK subjob. NP, we let it go... saves alot of time and headache. For those of you who have played FFXI long enough, I don't have to explain the benefits of 20WAR/10MNK over 20WAR/10NIN as a DAMAGE TANK. It's practically in the owner's manual. Everone that participated in the event was subject to a set of requirements, a carefully planned out strategy, and 100% equal opportunity towards treasure. Everyone is expected to follow job class requirement for the event. Otherwise I would be subjecting my Linkshell to catastrophic garrison failure and a bunch of negativity towards eachother. I would also like to point out that it was UNFAIR to my linkshell to allow Eviljoel to bring what ever job combo he liked AGAINST my request while making sure everyone ELSE brought what I asked. For the hypocracy claim I am guilty as charged. Moving on...

The garrison was successful as always with minimal death and very decent loot. When garrison is held we normally finish 3-4 garrisons in 2-3 hours pulling in over 2,000,000 in profit spread out over whoever participated. Not bad for a 12 person alliance consisting nearly half of people who just got their subjob quest unlocked a week ago and are still trying to level their first job to 30. Someone has to provide the new guys/girls positive reinforcement in a friendly environment so they will open up and accept criticism to learn how to "Get er done." It's what TheMethyloSyndicate is about. As with any group of people clumped together in a public situation there will be disagreement and conflict. Some end on good terms. Others end up like Eviljoel.

In a related story, Eviljoel voluntarily LEFT the shell not once but TWICE. The first time he left was just before a Garrison. I asked him to bring WAR/MNK... again. With another refusal I had to put my foot down. He explained to me that if I did not let him bring WAR/NIN he wasnt coming at all. I complied. Someone in the shell who didnt RSVP was waiting just inside the San D'Oria zone getting gear and items for the event. As not everyone can stay the entire 3 hour duration, others wait for an opening. Eviljoel was'nt satisfied with the results and continued to state his claim about the benefits of WAR/NIN over WAR/MNK. I explained that I was aware we had success with his job combo and that it was instead a matter of fair principle to the other members. As he stated in his first post while BASHING my linkshell, he still firmly belives that WAR/NIN is better and proceeded in an attempt to overcome my objective yet again. This time by arguing the idea that the extra damage is better for the alliance than the defense provided with WAR/MNK to which I disagreed. The conversation ended something like this: "If you're not gonna open up to the idea that my job combo works/is better... Then your leadership isnt what I'm looking for." To which I calmly replied, "<Understood>"

He removed his linksack and left for days if not weeks. That said, he decides to make a guest appearance and pop back into the shell one day. I immediately return him to Linkpearl status. No one that displays this type of behavior is given the privelage of holding a sack. Call it a powertrip if you want, I have a shell to run... Upon the discovery of such an act, he immediately pointed out to the shell that he was demoted and that it was time to leave for good. NP. After some time passes he promises in /tell to me that he will open a forum in which he will tell the world how awful it was to be here and persuade others to stay away. I gave him the express permission to do so and ended the conversation with some unpleasant words followed by a /blist.

So here we are, in the forums, bickering as usual, over a bad experience we had with a complete stranger over the internet. Nice eh? It's frustrating being dragged down to this level, but I will never allow anyone to commit such a malice act towards my team or towards myself directly without at LEAST hearing from me. Shame on me for not listening to his former LS leader, Splstorm. TheMethyloSyndicate is currently recruiting while maintining 30+ registered members. I plan on doing some Endgame work as soon as I can lift my teammates to the appropriate level.

The shell has broken apart twice possibly 3 times over its 30 month lifespan. Each time rebuilding and producing offspring that will contribute something positive to FFXI. Only a few leave voluntarily or with hard feelings.

One more thing, anyone who has seen the phrase: "I'll log their IP address, decode it, come to their house, kick in their door in and beat them to a bloody pulp." from Eviljoel. Holler at me in-game we'll have a laugh together. Peace.

Dang Evil your not a very happy camper are ya. I have been with this ls from day one and i must say its a great ls. We have alot of cool ppl who like to have fun and help each other. As for the garrison rules its not fair for evil to be the only one that does not have to follow the requirements of the event. Im sry that your upset Evil and i wish you the best but your just acting kinda like a child who did not get to play with the toy he wanted :/. Gl to you Evil and i hope you find an ls that you can get along with. It was nice to get to know you for the time that your were on our ls and im sorry that you left on bad terms gl to you in whatever you choose to do with your life and with this game.

Honestly Evil, I don't know what the deal is. Methylos asks very little, certain job combos that work best with his formula. As for him using untested job, thats false, so far as I know, the only time he has changed anything majorly is that time he tried a 6 man garry, and that didnt involve the whole shell. The only other change is he uses BRD/BST I think for the pull, rather than NIN/whatever.

As for associating with gillsellers, that's false too. As Vashy said, once it happened, and it was dealt with very quickly. We don't aid them at all, **** it's not a day until someone whines about how many of them there are camping (insert NM).

With regard to the comments about Methylos, he hasn't changed at all, he always asked specific things for his events, which overall were for the better. When we do Garry, we win, that simple. Any change from the formula could throw the balance off. He didn't ask you to sacrifice christian babies to him, he asked for a certain subjob, which you had, and could've done. So you rage quit.

I've been with this shell for a good while, and known Methy for longer than the shell has existed. He didn't force you to quit, far as I know. You were being inflexable, and to prove your point and get attention you rage quit the LS. Not quite an epic commentary on the LS as a whole...

A correction was sent in. I had the information backwards, Chaosfairy and Jedithis invited Eviljoel to the Linkshell instead of the other way around. My point remains the same. Chaosfairy and Jedithis are still with my team. In recent news, Eviljoel offered to make Chaosfairy his enemy if she continued to frequent the Linkshell. To which she replied "Knock your sh*t off, I'm your mother!" I giggle everytime I think about it...

Dont Join Methylosyndicate!!?? /shocked. Methylosyndicate is a VERY good ls for anyone to join. I was actually in it for a long time, and really couldnt tell you why i left, it's a good LS. It is only few members like Eviljoel that can make them look bad, although out of this i only see Eviljoel making himself look bad. He actually quit my LS because we was starting a Garrison and i would not let him have lead of one of our partys (we had 12 ppl and 2 leaders and he wanted to start a 3rd pt just so he could lead one..... yes i know). So that is when he left HeavensGuardians. He cries like a baby anytime ppl dont do what he says and he doesnt get his way, but just ask him, he knows everything.
#13 Aug 13 2006 at 1:08 PM Rating: Decent
Also it should be noted, recently he has some crusade against Methylos and the LS, and whines about it in his PTs. An LS member informed me of this, and apparently Evil says we're "noobs" now. As opposed to being elitists who hate noobs as he said before...I like how they argument changed dramatically there, it worked well.

meh... ... ..

Methylos has always been a reputable player, ask any of us that have been around since release. Him and the people from his shell have always been friendly/courteous in every encounter I've ever had with them. Many LS's dont accept new people and I have always had a bit of extra respect for those who do. It's a great thing to take on new players and teach them the -right- way to play and make honest gil/level properly/make friends. Although there's always people who never seem to mesh well, I commend Methylosyndicate on their long term commitment to helping people get a good start in FFXI.

As for the war/nin @20 thing.... I've leveled 150+ levels of Warrior job plus merits... war/mnk is quite a bit better at that level (maybe someone just never leveled great axe X.x).

Anyway, newer players should consider themselves lucky to find a longstanding shell that still includes them in events and treats them like something more than a "noob".

Good luck,

T.J.

WAR/NIN @ 20 is worthless unless the Axes or Swords have some sort of attributes to them.

I'm really struggling to see any benefits of a lv 20 WAR/NIN over lv 20 WAR/MNK.
Equipment and JT/JA both look better for WAR/MNK to me(see below).

WAR/NIN
Axe: Battleaxe +1 Lvl 20 Dmg: 21 Dly: 268
:Stat boosting weapons
Axe: Republic Axe Lvl 15 Dmg: 15 Dly: 260 Accuracy: 2
Sword: Auriga Xiphos Lvl 19 Dmg: 17 Dly: 224 Accuracy: 2 (R/Ex)

SubJob: JT/JA
Stealth, Dual Wield I, Resist Bind, Tonko: Ichi

WAR/MNK
GAxe: Neckchopper Lvl 20: Dmg: 39 Dly: 489 Accuracy: 5

SubJob: JT/JA
M.Arts I, Boost, Counter, Subtle Blow (plus Guard)

I just can't see the point of WAR/NIN at this level, other than just wanting your avatar to look a certain way. Any lv 20 WAR/NIN supporters care to enlighten me?

Wow lvl20 Garrison.....the only thing NIN sj would give you would be the ability to equip 2 axes or sword. Which would yeild less damage then 1 GAX.

MNK sj gives you a bit more HP, VIT, Counter(OMG COUNTERING WITH A 500 DELAY WEAPON IS AWESOME), and well makes so much more sense.

Everytime I see a WAR/NIN tanking mandys in the jungles outside of kazham, I die a little. When I took WAR thru there, went WAR/MNK, Axe and shield, high VIT/DEF combo with fishkabobs(before food patch). Mandys hit me for around 10 damage a punch, and Boost gives about 1/3 the hate of provoke, and you can use it every 15 seconds.

I'm going to point out some very fine truths:

1: this is too much writing for the situation.

2: this is too much thinking for the situation.


so all in all: more or less, nobody should care THAT much about one persons bad experience. we win some, we lose some. not everybody gets alone or thinks the same way.

Alright since I am a part of the Methylossyndicate and have been for pretty much the whole time its been around I've known pretty much everything that goes on at all times espcecailly since Methylos is my RL brother. Yes i've known him for all 19 years of my life and have seen the good and bad sides of him. But as a person and a leader Methy is one of the most intelligent and selfless people i've ever known. He has always been the type of person in game to go out of his way to help others in the linkshell and even some outside of our linkshell in more ways then one.


Now on to the actual issue here as to weather or not eviljoel or methylos is correct on the issue of the garrison. For one i've played as a Pld/War in every garrison but a few. I've done whitemage 2 times and war/mnk a few times before i unlocked pld. I've done prolly 30 garrisons with methy over time this game has been out. that being said every garrison that i've done with him have had specific requirements for each individual to abide by, and none of them unfair or dishonest. There has been very few changes to the garrisions that he has done. 1 being the way he kites the monsters which has become more and more successfull over the years we have been doing them. and 2 is instead of being a full alliance we now only use 2 full parties. as for war/nin in the garrison over war/mnk its pretty much pointless in my eyes. for one the stats of nin are horrible at lvl 10 and dual weilding axes kinda sucks over a GreatAxe. that being said

HunterGamma stated this

"Wow lvl20 Garrison.....the only thing NIN sj would give you would be the ability to equip 2 axes or sword. Which would yeild less damage then 1 GAX.

MNK sj gives you a bit more HP, VIT, Counter(OMG COUNTERING WITH A 500 DELAY WEAPON IS AWESOME), and well makes so much more sense.

Mandys hit me for around 10 damage a punch, and Boost gives about 1/3 the hate of provoke, and you can use it every 15 seconds."

I refuse to let any NIN in the jungle be a main tank for 2 reasons 1. is its a big waste of money to keep using utsesumi or how ever the **** you spell it because they blow through your shadows faster than a galka through a cake and 2nd is your defense sucks more than getting beatin to an NM claim only to have the ******* call for help . That being said War/NIN at lvl 20 garrison is useless because you dont even get utsesumi . therein lies the problem with eviljoels arguement. and finally to finish off my rant about how eviljoel is wrong here

Not announcing any formal changes he starts to make rules for garrison stupid ones i may add. Like not being allowed to sub nin for dual weild in garry although war/nin is a PROVEN 20 garrison combo. On the other hand he is a hypocrite. He is allowed to use job combos that are not proven and if he failed oh well "I'm the leader you do what i say." Ok so hes is ignorant ,theyre noob bashers, and have affiliation with gil-sellers and disreputable people on the server. Im saying dont join it hes an elitest and he takes this "game" like its rl.


just look at the first line of his post "So in my time as a player on here i've been in a lot of linkshells." that alone says alot about a person

i just noticed this: "I'll log their IP address, decode it, come to their house, kick in their door in and beat them to a bloody pulp."

pretty sure an IP address is just a number.. in binary. representing an address. a computer address that is. Given by the DHCP server for most of america's machines (given that alot of you are using comcast. or something comcast owns. IE: adelphia) which means, its just going to be 192.168.0.10 to .14, at least in theory. the modem itself is going to be a 72.x.x.x or a 10.x.x.x. I honestly don't think that someone is going to be able to "decode" a number like that. you can poke it into one of comcast's utilities though and you'll find almost everything you need to know about that persons account. Or ****, the MAC address finder if they're NOT on comcast. the Node finder, which CMTS it goes through. etc. etc.

I honestly dont think its as difficult as decoding a long number like that. . . >> at least. not for an employee of one of comcast's outsourcing companies

Here I am reading a thread entitled, "Don't Join Methylosyndicate!!" and all I want to do is joing Methylosyndicate.

Maybe I'm just a rebel--refusing to do as I'm told. Not willing to bow down to the man. Never yielding to "common knowledge." Wary of authority. Or maybe I innately doubt the veracity of any sentence ending in double exclamation points.

Or maybe it's because joel comes off as a bit childish while Meth and the rest of the LS members come off as honest and forthright. And then there's that whole, "war/nin is a PROVEN 20 garrison combo" assertion that joel makes--which doesn't make any sense at all. I leveled NIN on a previous character and, at level 10, that job just sucks. Awesome stuff at 40--but up until then, quite often NOT awesome.

Kudos, Meth, on taking in the n00bs and helping them accomplish necessary tasks and make a little gil. I saw a study where a large percentage of players leave FFXI before they've leveled their character far enough to get out of the dunes. An LS like yours I'm certain does a lot of good in keeping players in the game and steering them away from RMT. Having abandoned one character and started another, starting fresh as a n00b with an unknown name, I got to experience first hand what it's like to be feel lonely in FFXI. (To quote the great Artie Lang: "Wah!")

Anyway--joel, get a life. Listen to people more experienced than you. I know it's hard, sometimes. You want to do things your way. We all feel that way most of the time. Nobody accepts criticism easily. I've been leveling BST and, when I met the leader of my current LS (Six-Axe Army), I thought he was an arrogant so-and-so. After all, he didn't know that this was my second character and I wasn't a n00b! This was my SECOND time to level BST! But as soon as I recognized that this reaction was just my innate defensiveness to criticism, I realized that I could benefit ENORMOUSLY from the lessons of more experienced players. But, joel, I'm probably twice your age. And it's odd that it's only as you get older you realize you really DON'T know everything.

Guy who thinks /nin before 24 is good on warrior (I argue its junk before 50) vs a well spoken LS leader who has a solid plan for his LS. Perhaps one person needs a blindfold to make it fair?

I’ve been playing FFXI for almost 3 years and one of the very 1st friends I ever made was Methylos. We have been in many shells together and I’ve been a member of the Syndicate since it was founded. And i can truly say that Methlyos is one of the most honest and intelligent LS leaders vie ever seen.

It really upsets me that joe would go to the lengths of making a thread just to hurt the Methylosyndicate after all the shell has done for him. You say that "Methylos started to go on a power trip i mean micromanagement out the wazu", but I see that as dedication to the shell. When he has a idea or a plan of strategy its always for the good of the shell. Everything ive heard out of him lately is about improving the shell and making it a much better experience for its members. With his leadership we’ve grown substantially and are ranked #2 in the Valefor LSC. That doesn’t happen when some halfwit runs a shell it happens when someone runs a shell right.

!!!SUPPORT THE SYDICATE!!!!!

Eviljoel, Way to be an adult. You're in the @#%^ing army for christ sake. IF anyone should know better, it should be you. Instead, you fail at life. People like you create public disruption and drama for attention because you can find no other way to make yourself noticable. I wouldnt let you participate and you FREAKED. So intensely bothered by our rejection to your unwillingness to cooperate, you opened a forum to deface me and my friends. Well... Have you read the @#%^ing thing? I've seen better form from a four-year-old, tears in its eyes, red in the face with FURY, kicking and screaming on the floor because its parents wouldnt give it ice cream after 8pm. Bloodywilliam knows what he's talking about. I only ever asked from you what I offered in the first place, kiddo. Compromise. People stand up and speak out in this forum not because I make them. But simply because you did'nt get what you wanted and have insulted and ****** off a number of people during your temper tantrum. Your provocations, your claims, and all of your words are regarded as garbage and otherwise worthless by nearly everyone who has access to the internet. You've been wrong on all counts, cant keep yourself in a linkshell, AND have been accused of buying gil, ALL in the forum YOU created to "get back at those bastards". Congratulations, yer a frickin hero. /end rant

Alright well having been in the same LS as EvilJoel once before i guess i'm sort of allowed to put my 2 gil in. I was in MerchantsofHope with EvilJoel for about 2 months maybe before i ditched the link (mainly because of him). He is one of the most annoying people in the game and is one of the reasons why people dont like these kind of games. Having been on the Valefor Server for quote, "over 4 years" ( i dont even think the games been out that long, but what do i know, im a noob) he thinks that he is better than almost everyone. In his eyes, he has helped over 60% of the server with the NIN flag quest because he's been on the server for "over 4 years". He brags about everything and thinks that he is a god. Last i checked, he didnt have a single job at 75, i think they were all around in the 30s. Definitely pretty godly i must say. He has even threatened to hack peoples systems for what reasons i dont know nor care. So its no doubt that if he gets booted from an LS he'd start a thread like this...

And having read some of the forum(there was a lot there and i didnt want to hurt my brain) i would love to meet you Mythlos cuz you seem like a really cool guy. I'd love to get in your link cuz it seems like you get a lot of stuff done and like you get a lot of help. But I'd have to bounce between links cuz i really like the link that i'm in right now. So if I'm able to join and if anyone in the link could give me a pearl i'd really appreciate it. Kollosus

lol, I'm sorry Zelfie, I don't like saying bad things about people who haven't caused me any harm. But I gotta comment on Manfriday's post. She was another who fell vitcim to my shell "cleansing". Lasted about 24 hours in the shell if I remember correctly. She was like a hurricane of hormones and in constant need of attention. (If she is a she, I've heard rumors...) Anyone that spams the ls channel with a 4 line macro about being a glamorous diva was probably ignored as a child... For days if not weeks at a time. Sorry Zellie Zel, I hope one day your endocrine system backs down a few notches causing your adrenaline to stablize making you a little more docile and controllable. Being the center of attention in a positive manner is a difficult feat. While getting /blisted by masses in a matter of seconds on the other hand, can take only a mere "I'm a diva!" macro to accomplish. GL to ya...

Zelfie lasted 4 days in our ls. Only because we tried the "ignore" method used on children to burn out their need for attention. Instead she would just hop onto another LS to annoy them, then come back. So we gave her the boots, sad thing was no one noticed XD

Thank you EvilJoel, for creating this thread. I have seen your name in Jeuno, never seen that dude Methylos tho, and never heard of the Methylossyndicate LS. That guy Methylos seems like a very nice guy, after reading his posts, and I will ask him if I can join his LS, which seems like a friendly and cool LS.

Does anyone know where I can apply for membership, or do I just ask Methylos in game?

Have a nice day everyone!

Funrazor, nice to meet you. If you see any members of the shell ask them for a pearl, either an officer of the shell or myself will conduct a real short interview and see if you can work well with the team. I'll keep an eye out for you as well. Thanks for taking an iterest in tms.

Lol methy.

It probably won't generate any responses considering how the problem was discussed and fixed when this thread was still new. That's what happens to threads, when the problem gets fixed, people stop posting in it and the thread disappears past the 1st page. Smiley: smile



EDIT: And if you're wondering why I haven't been on the shell lately... It's because I've decided to take a break from FFXI for a little while. I only played FFXI ONCE last week, and so far this week, haven't played at all. I'm prolly gunna take a week off from it.
