afterwards we called it Dynamis-Rolanberry

if you are in unicorn you undoubtedly heard about someone pulling Simurgh to Jeuno, we did it XD

story was this: gil sellers claimed simurgh, like they usually do. simurgh kicks there buts. then our tod checker tells us another ls named RiOT is there and claims sim, they get their butts kicked, so he calls everyone available down.

So after we get our ls leader, also our ninja, down there, things are looking good, till Simurgh starts to hit for 300. we call some friends down to help, @ about half health, starts to do 500 damage w/o critical, then mighty strikes ensued.

chaos. we ran for jeuno, got about halfway. Riot in the meantime had regrouped and stole, their main tank, a level 75 pld, was 3 shotted and they quickly fell apart. we continued the trek north. sim passed hands about 5 times, then finally the strongest NA ls on unicorn came down and barely killed him. got the drop too :(

Simurgh used to be a joke easily handled by 3 people. Now...OMFG! Dynamis Rolanberry. It had the R:2500 and the dead bodies all around...was quite funny after i got myself safe

~30 people died, and almost 250 people watched simurgh as he was near the gate.

good job SE. gilsellers will never again be able to get a pair of strider boots, a k club, a speed belt, or anything they usually do. they can have their monster signas and o kote XD

I am sick of Play online! can we get a different rep here! o.O Does the word "Ethics" mean anything to these people? i mean who does maintenance on the pay online when accounts are due? also with all this update after update WTF? CAN I PLAY THE FRIGGIN GAME I PAAAAAY FOR????? Learn the word Ethics! or are you making so much $$$ you dont actually care for your customers?
RE: POL in General...
# Aug 02 2005 at 1:31 PM Rating: Decent
We don't just pay these people to be able to play their game. We pay them to maintain it. Dowtime is a part of maintenance. Would you prefer that we play the same exact version of the game that we played at release? It takes work and effort on their part to make these changes and fixes. If they didnt have your Ethics they would just run off with our money and let us run wild on their servers without ever having to worry about an update. Less work for them.
Still not working

But please deal with it, life is not perfect, man makes mistakes . it happens, deal with it and please stop moaning and crying how horrable the game is if you dont like it do us all a favor and QUIT!!

here here! amen brother/sister.

remembering that a lot of kids play this game gives me a lot of patience in shall we say annoying situations.

However some adults can be just as bad, if not worse :P
RE: my god
# Aug 02 2005 at 12:05 PM Rating: Decent
You want to talk about being adults, look at yourself...You are getting all worked up over some people asking simple questions or posting the same thing. This show us all your maturity level...grow up dude. If you dont like it, why dont you quit. If you want to pratice intolerance, go someplace else and show your *** to them. If you have a problem, keep it to your damn self. Practice what you preach...****.

Just a little FYI... maybe 1/3 of the world checks the European version of playonline.com, and this info is only given on the US version (I checked a minute ago) ... so if you don't know that the european version ain't just a translation but another version of the site (I didnt know it myself), you can't find the info you're looking for and have to ask on a board like this one...

yes, that sounds nice, but the truth is that most JP's that have controlled HNMs on my server (fairy) don't even spam, they use third party progs to pre-claim the mob before it spawn. Trust me, FairyNetwork hasn't controlled behemoth/King behemoth for 1 year and a half w/ spamming. If a JP ls lost a claim on a NM it's because they messed something up or mpked themselves <_<;, either way this just adds a new twist to the old claim game.

this is always happening!!matainance after matainance!!!i am getting angry...and pissed at SE. how can they do this to us. i know they are working very hard to improve our gamin experiences, but...i think they should take one full day to do all of the testing and ****,and fix it, rather than just 2 or 3 hours at a time.

IC, and ty for the info, i wish SE could finish the job somtimes, with these updates... but they are just a company not miricle workers, or w/e u call them, and this is also a game, not life... yawn.
Get those NM
# Aug 02 2005 at 8:45 AM Rating: Default
If they maded the time after an NM pops and when it's claimable random bots would be useless..
If SE could do that, Gilsellers wouldn't have an advantage on us normal players..
update

Nice update overall. I like being able to extend your npc's staying time, thirty minutes does seem a bit low.

/blockaid sounds good. It is perfect for bloodporting. That way n00bz can't cure you while trying to die. And it is cancelled when you die, so you don't even have to turn it off!

No good for me, though. BLM20 = Warp.

My LS managed to get Bune pre-patch (as in 1 minute before shutdown!) then get him again post-patch, because vokebots didn't work :) (Our NIN melee-claimed it, since we knew about the changes ^_^)

Pre-patch drops: 4 skins and 2 wings
Post-patch drop: 1 wind crystal

/hurray...
good patch

looks like a good patch to me
SE fucked up again
# Aug 01 2005 at 10:21 PM Rating: Decent
Not about the update though.. everything in it is great. However: Quite a few people are missing things... I lost my Himmel Stock directly after maitenence (wasnt on any mules, mogs, storage, etc) I did not sell or drop it. My friend is missing his Aristocrat's Coat.. I called a GM and so did he. 42 calls before me, then they sent me a MESSAGE.. didnt even talk to me.. Saying they will not re-emburse anything.. you have been warned folks.

----Josheaston, Valefor server.------

EDIT1: I will keep updating as i get tallys, here are the current new tallys.

Brother lost his AF legs and the Hand to Hand weapons, Adargus.

Friend lost her Gluttony Sword.

Turns out other friend did not lose aristocrats coat, they were joking lol.

# Aug 02 2005 at 12:09 PM Rating: Decent
Edit 2: I just got back on FFXI after all this POL **** and my staff is back in my mog safe, where i left it before maitenence. I know that it wasn't there before and SE must've put it back because i was 59/60 items when i went to tavnazia last night prepping for PM 2-3. I got there and went to check my safe for my electrum hairpin then all of a sudden i see my himmel stock there. So I had my bro and friend check the last place they left their items and those were back too.
