    Hey guys, so I've given this a lot of thought and finally decided to make a team for people who want to consistently raid. I personally care less about the rewards of raiding and more about the multiplayer experience. The idea of forming a group based around team composition, testing it out, and seeing it succeed is far more rewarding than what's offered.

    So, it'll be a mix of both private and public with the intent of playing with the same few people, and allowing others to join as well. I don't really want to be strict; however, I feel there should be a few reasonable guidelines laid out:
    1. Have characters that offer an impactful experience towards the team's overall composition. If we bring, as an example, an Earth chain, try to bring a character that's fully dived that has some solid DPS. If you have nothing, I feel it's reasonable to say you could bring a battery and healer. We can still coordinate with you on who needs soulbreaks. :)
    2. Lets play on Saturdays around 6:00 PM EST for about an hour or so, maybe more depending on who wants to join. Open to times that work best for everyone, long as it falls on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
    3. I'd like to organize this over Skype, or via a Discord channel (not the FFRK discord). We can use voice chat if you want; however, the point of both Skype and Discord is to coordinate and see who's available. Voice chat would be easier during raids if everyone was okay with it.
    4. I'd like to stream this as a community event. If you're uncomfortable with me streaming with you in voice chat, mute your mic.
    I'm looking for 7 other people to join so we always can go in together. This will allow everyone to have a chance to play together. For both an entertaining perspective for stream viewers, as well as a fulfilling experience for us, here's what I am looking for in a list from you:

    • If you have any elemental chains, what can you bring to the table?
    • Do you have any elemental radiant shields? It offers 8x damage, and 8x chain hits.
    • What USBs do you have that offer chases?
    • What's your location? This is important on whether you can host or join.
    • Do you have Ramza's Chant (FFT), or Machinas "Slayer of Fear" (Type-0)? Outside of Zack's chain, both offer +50% Critical Damage for the group, would stack nicely with Onion Knight's pUSB which offers +50% Attack and +50% Critical Chance.
    Here's the Discord link:

    For a first reply, here's my information:

    • Location: USA, North Carolina. (East Coast)
    • Chains: Wind, Water, Earth, Holy
    • I believe Kelger and Dorgann's is all I have, or atleast all I use.
    • I have no elemental radiant shields.
    • I have neither Ramza's or Machina's SSBs.

    Cos' it's a holiday~~ in Cambodia~!!!

    Jokes aside, as u can read from my profile information, I'm from Malaysia. I don't think having this condition would help fan the hype and participation for this raid initiative. Especially if we segregate based on origin of nation, which I believe this forum does not condone.

    I suggest removing this condition, but replace it with one which states that each participant is responsible for their own quality of Internet connectivity. In case a raid member disconnects, sure the Raid Leader can take over. However, the Raid would need to be refreshed by default, should two or all members are disconnected. And if a player is facing consistent difficulty in hosting or joining, suggest that the player gracefully cedes and frees up his spot for another interested participant.

    I removed that stipulation. I want to avoid disconnects; while they are inevitable with DeNA's netcode, we can still give people the opportunity to all play together. It's not fun to control someone else characters imo.

    Make sure you guys list in bullets what you have like I did on my second post! :D

    Firstly, glad to be a part of this community now. I'm active on the FFRK sub of Reddit and play daily. I'm looking to get more involved with a raiding group, as MP is probably my favorite aspect of the game.

    I can play Saturday/Sundays, any time between 5-8pm PDT. (I live in Los Angeles, CA.)

    I'll get down into the gritty and dirty of it! I'll probably be able to fill any holes on the teams as I have a diversity of SBs/equipment. Been playing for about a year, and used the Renewal Dungeon mythril, as well as strategic planning, and some money here and there, to acquired a balanced SB portfolio.

    Chains:
    • Seymour, Garland (Dark)
    • Shantotto, Kain (Lightning)
    • Rinoa [LD], Snow (Ice)
    • Krile (Fire)
    • Zack (Wind)
    • Tidus [LD] (Water)
    • Warrior of Light (Holy)
    Radiant Shields:
    • Vincent [LD] BSB
    • Alphinaud Deployment Tactics SSB
    • Snow USB [Ice]
    • Emperor SSB
    • Curilla USB
    • Seifer BSB (Self Reflect)
    • Ingus BSB2 [Earth]

    • Kelger Earth/Wind USB
    • Sabin Fire USB
    • Shadow Dark USB
    • Yuffie [LD] Water USB2
    • Zell Fire USB
    • Fujin Wind USB
    • Rinoa [LD] Ice USB
    • Zidane Wind USB
    • Garnet Lightning USB
    • Beatrix [LD] Holy USB
    • Yuna NE USB2
    • Tidus [LD] Water USB
    • Vayne [LD] Dark USB
    • Snow Ice USB
    • Hope Holy USB
    • Alphinaud Wind USB
    • Sora [LD] Fire/Ice/Lightning USB

    Legend Dives:
    • Onion Knight // (m)USB, (p)USB, OSB, BSB, SSB2, LMR
    • Edge // USB, SSB2, LMR
    • Bartz // USB, OSB, BSB-NE/Wa/Wi/Fi/Ea, SSB, LMR

    • Orlandeau // USB, OSB, BSB, LMR
    • Sora // USB, AOSB, BSB, GSB-F/I/L, LMR
    Let me know if I can contribute in any way! I'm really excited to try Realm CM type runs, all guys, all girls, themed teams, and using elements an enemy is strong against with mixtures of Chain/Imperils. Cheers!

    Also, let me know if I can add anything I haven't listed. Tried to be pretty thorough.

    Upcoming LDs:
    • Squall (after the FFII Event) // OSB, AOSB, GSB, BSB2, SSB, LMR
    Also have the following USBs/BSBs/LMRs that may be of consequence to our discussion:

    - Relm BSB/SSB/LMR
    - Eiko USB/BSB
    - Rosa USB/LMR
    - Aphmau USB
    - Yuna USB1
    - Sarah USB/BSB/LMR
    - Minwu USB
    - Alma USB/LMR
    - Deuce USB/BSB/SSB

    - Galuf USB/BSBs/LMR

    Okay so I'm thinking up a team comp that'll work with all three of us, we can slot in a fourth as people reply to this thread:

    Graham:
    • Onion Knight: pUSB+Battery
    • Relm: USB+Curada

    Steve:
    • Squall: USB+Snowspell Strike?
    • Snow: Chain+Icicle Rush?

    Reyn:
    • Ramza: Chant+Battery
    • Snow: Radiant Shield USB+Icicle Rush?
    Last Slot:
    • DPS: AOSB+Glint spam perhaps with battery entrusts?
    • Tyro: Divine Veil Grimoire+Breaks
    So this team compositions works in favor of what we all have to offer; I unfortunately don't have much with Ice haha. It allows us to focus on the ice chain through 8-hits with the ice radiant shield, and through USB chase follow-up damage. Onion Knight's pUSB and Ramza's Chant work hand-in-hand, offering +50% Attack, Critical Chance, and Critical Damage. I am not sure if stoneskin will affect radiant shield; however, if it does, it'll tell us how much damage the stoneskin bubble has taken. We also have two potential bubbles from Ramza's Chant and from either healer.

    I have Rinoa/Shantotto Chain and godwall and can make a team for any element pretty easily.

    Can you list all USBs, Chains, and elemental Radiant Shields you have? We're going to raid on Saturdays, does this work for you?

    So I dunno if I would be able to adhere to your schedule of playing around 6 pm EST on Friday-Sunday, due to the fact my job has me working 8 hours between 11 am and 9 pm EST the days I work, and I will never have any Friday, Saturday, or Sunday off due to the nature of my workplace. That being said I do still wish to offer my services to hopefully be of use, and in addition have some fun! Now, to list what I have...

    Chains
    Water Chain (Tidus)
    Dark Chain (Seymour)
    Ice Chain (Rinoa)
    Radiant Shields
    Deployment Tactics (Alphinaud SSB, Non-Elemental)
    Fusillade Particle Beam (Cloud of Darkness BSB, Non-Elemental)​

    USBs with Chase
    Chosen Traveler (Bartz)
    Jokers Wild (Setzer)
    Rose Finale (Beatrix)
    Moonblossom Dragoon (Freya)
    Day to Remember (Tidus)​

    Legend Dives
    Squall
    Bartz
    Noctis
    Freya
    Y'shtola
    Alphinaud
    Tidus
    Cid Raines
    Shelke​

    Chant or Slayer of Fear?
    Yes, I have Chant, but not Slayer of Fear. In addition I have OK pUSB for necessary purposes as well, if that helps.​

    Location
    Colorado, USA​

    In addition, this here is an entire list of my Soul Breaks, regularly updated whenever a draw is done. Feel free to refer to it as needed.

    Hope this helps, and hope I can be of service sometime or another! Thanks for the opportunity nonetheless, Graham!

    Signed up for the Discord. Also got some more gear yesterday with my stupid 250 mythril in pulls. XD

    Kicking myself, as I spent my pull for Maria/Minwu, King/Rem/Cinque, and Palom/Porom...

    Updating my original post, but landed Master USB/BSB/LMR, Matoya USB, Garland CSB/BSB2, and WoL CSB.

    @Graham
    for future reference,

    We don't encourage members to make another medium to met other than here,
    as we are our own chat.

    second asking for member personal information in this way other than a PM is
    kinda frowned on.

    I understand, there are even linked FB members here, but until we start
    to accept Skype or Dischord as linked media, let's not do this again

    I am locking, but NOT deleting this thread.
