I hate pickups

I don't get it. Why are pickup groups so damned horrible most of the time? I understand that a pickup party in Valkurm Dunes has a high rate of failure, but why are event pickups even worse? What the hell gets into people?

I did two Nyzul 60's today, and they failed. One fail was because we only had 5 minutes left just as we finished floor 58, and the other was because we ran out of time on 59. Yeah, we ran out of time.

HOW THE HELL DO YOU RUN OUT OF TIME IN NYZUL ISLE???!!!!

I mean, we weren't even at the boss floor. How does this happen? I'm a bit more understanding on floors 1-5. You more or less rid your mind of expectations and just go with the flow, but on 56-60? We're going to get some bs floors, and I understand that. Really, I do. At the same time, have we not all done Nyzul Isle enough to learn to adapt to a shitty situation? Do we not know the enemy behavior and the things that we should be doing when we're wandering around the place?

Oh but it gets better. At least I got credit towards my next Rank Evaluation for Nyzul, and my two deaths could easily be recovered when I go play in the sandbox. However...

I did it again. I went back to that goddamned ISNM and tried my luck. I'm starting to seriously hate this event. It's not that fact that I get crap for drops; I'm use to that and more or less expect it. Besides I get 24k just for going, and that's pretty much a winning deal for a poor person.

What I hate about the event is that I die every time I go there. I just don't understand this. If the whole party is dying, then I can't expect anyone to focus on me. However; if the rest of the party is at 90% or more, and I'm sitting there with 147/1337 HP...yeah, I kind of expect that maybe I'd get a heal. Since I am the one with hate and on the verge of dying, it would be nice to toss a cure or more my way (for the record, I do NOT mean Cure III). What I don't expect, is to see my healer casting a damned Dia II spell midway through the fight while I'm one hit from dying. To hell with dia and heal me damn it!

/sigh. I'm obviously frustrated today. Been bored as hell all day and when I am finally able to do something other than Fields of Boredom and soloing yet another job, they all fail.

Maybe I should just go buy Bayonetta and take a day off of FFXI.

If I had any money (and my PS2 worked worth a piss) I'd go and buy the Devil May Cry collection and then buy a modern console and get Bayonetta.

Me <3's stylishly stabbing things and then shooting them.

One of these days i decided to spend my hard-earned Imperial Standings (i only get them when I do meripos) on a ISNM shout. Needless to say I went *RDM*. And all 6 fights went pretty smooth, no one died at all. Just the first person got the khroma, and then again, i fail at having any kind of luck in getting money items.

PS: I'm ALWAYS looking for a SAM to do Hagun with me. And if you want, we can set up static Jaci. My SAM friend just quit game and I'm fucked up right now.
