    I agree with ya but bots should be removed. I'm ok with losing to someone wanting it. But I should not have to deal with bots.

    I do worry about finding a decent ls.
    I was fairly inactive for quite some time until a few months ago, only logging in a few times in a month. When I appearsed after a few weeks of inactivity, someone recognized me from days of yore, invited me to an LS and it was basically full and they do pretty much all the popular content regularly. the community is tighter on other servers and when a new chellenger appears, you can almost expect that the big groups on the server will find you without you even trying. Even then, most make use of the concierge and it's easy to get started.


    But I should not have to deal with bots.
    There is absolutely no way to remove bots entirely outside of removing the demand for their services. It's a never ending game of whack a mole and that's with a game's team doing everything it can. You can limit the impact, but you can't eliminate it entirely.

    FFXI is a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Player Game (MMORPG), it's meant to be played with many people at once in a large thriving world, not someone player by themselves with five imaginary friends. That multiplayer aspect is why everyone moves to Asura, there are actually people there to meet, play the game and make friends with. Unfortunately SE's crappy event system and slow content release schedule results in everyone having to do the same content at the same time. Asura only gets really busy at a specific time of day, right after 6PM PST when we have all four NA time zones playing at the same time.

    If you can get a good experience, but only if you log on at weird hours, that's really just another sign that the server is overcrowded.

    Never an issue, as I already said. Last night did two back to back sortie runs, first had a line of 1, the second had a line of 2.

    Again the congestion issues on Asura are only really between 6 and 9PM PST, or 9PM and midnight EST. Basically anytime folks in both major population zones are playing at once. 7PM EST is smooth sailing for us.

    I repeat, if you have to play outside of typical playing hours to be able to do stuff, that just means it really is overcrowded.

    If you were on another server, you wouldn't have to change your schedule (or be the lucky one who has that as a normal schedule) to be able to do the current content.
