View Full Version : Regarding party invites(Short rant)
Listen, it doesn't matter if you're playing a game, or if it's a real life situation, whatever. Don't ever invite someone to something and then revoke the offer. It's the most fucking inconsiderate thing you could ever do, short of spitting in their face.
In the context of PSU, don't you ever send a message to someone inviting them to party with you, and then replace them for taking 2 minutes to get there. It's just rude. I can understand making a mistake and asking one too many people, but if you don't even apologize? Yeah, fuck you. Seriously.
Any normal, nice person wouldn't do that right? You wouldn't ask a friend out to movies and then approach them 5 minutes later and say "Hey, y'know what? Cancel the movie plans. I think you're a tool. I'll go with my other friend, who I think is not a fucking tool. HAHA, BYE."
It's a total asshole thing to do. Just don't.

This happens far too much in FFXI..

Perhaps, the world in the PSUniverse happens that way..
Team leaders tend to invite tons of people to join a 6-member team for the purpose of having many different choices to pick from and once the 5 members are chosen, the rest are sent back to where they come from. Truly, this may seem rude, but then again.. A team in the PSuniverse can only contain 6 members including the leader, so I can understand why some people are happy with their team, while some are upset.
However, don't get me wrong.. Personally, I don't play the online version and so, I wouldn't know the actual teammate choosing within the online PSUniverse. http://www.pso-world.com/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/anime2.gif

the fact of the matter is, sometimes you send an invite to 10 people, and get two responses, and sometimes you send it to 10 people, and get 10 responses. How're you to know when you will and when you won't?
idk... it's more of a problem to me when a friend promises to run with you, but then doesn't

If I've sent more invites than spots on the team, I'll say that I'm taking the first X replies. It's just polite to let people know what's up with the offer.

There are times when a mail isn't responded to quickly enough. The sender may think that the other person won't respond at all if the responder doesn't respond quickly. I believe this can be fixed with etiquette.
Party builder mass sends mails, and is clearly not speaking to one individual. This lets the receiver know that it's not a personal request.
Receiver gives responds quickly to let the sender know they got the mail. If it is of no interest to the receiver, then the mail can be ignored. Though for clarity's sake, it's better to let the sender know that you aren't interested.
Party builder gets a list of mails, and can now choose between friends to party with. He lets everyone who is not invited know that they can no longer be invited if need be.
Of course, a more personal way would be to just send one mail at a time. This can take a while if the receivers don't respond immediately, though. If they do, you have less of a risk of leaving them in the cold.
This requires the use of AoI's AFK flags for most potential efficiency.

its worse on 360, many people without keyboards are flat out ignorant. The problem comes from having to make 4 man parties where 6 being too much, means you need to cut out people, when you are booted you are also ignored, not even a sorry, they dont say anything on the mics either just quietly remove me.
Like you i wouldnt have a problem if they just asked. Why not come out and say,my friends coming in, or if you are such an elitist. Sorry this guy is 5 lvls stronger than you so your worthless to me.
I remember one time, on the subjec of invites, when a guy invited me into a party randomly. So i joined and him and some other person not talking, he suddenly asks me 'why does your character have big legs, but a skinny body?'
i think i wear boktos legs with no armor. - anyway i say you invited me into your party so you could insult me? to which he remained quiet so i called him an idiot and left.

Split off into several groups, then regroup and swap?
