to be a COP? Linkshell - Casual Online PlayerS (COPS) is a new fun & social LS that was made for those people who:
1)Don't have a lot of time to play each day.
2)Don't want/need the pressure to perform to satisfy other members of an LS.
3)Understand that EVERYONE, at some point, was new to MMO's.
4)Enjoy playing just to play and/or make new friends.
When I started playing FFXI again, there were some really good people (Varmuty, Catdaddy, Hardwood, Kodiakdell, Athibant and many more) who helped and welcomed me as I had to re-learn the world of Vana'diel. I can't really thank them enough. Instead I decided to form my own LS that would not only help each other, but basically anyone who might ask. And the more I help others, the more I notice that others help right back. "Pay it forward" would be the motto for the LS, if we had one. LOL
The only "rule" I have is don't be mean to someone first.
I started playing FFXI when it first came out and played until right before Treasures came out. I admit I am a bit "newbish" on some the changes that have occurred between then and now. But I do learn very fast. As for experience in MMO's, I started playing EQ July 2, 2001. I have also played EQ2, SWG, WoW, LotRO and a few of the free ones as well like Hero and Florensia. In EQ I had a guild that went to 100 members in about 3 weeks, and 2 weeks later was over 200 strong. It was based on the same principles that COPS is.
So whether or not you want to join, if you ever need help with anything, feel free to send me a /tell and I'll see what I can do.
(Update) I work M-F 7a-3:30pm Central US Time. I usually pop-in for just a few minutes (5:30a-6a) before I leave for work. I'm in game from about 5p-9p M-Th, 5p-?? F, and ??? Sat-Sun. When I'm in game, I'm on the LS.
I am unsure of our actual number of members. Some only come on the LS when they need help, others I haven't seen on it in a while. We do have a core of about 5-6 ppl who, when they're in game, are on the LS. And because I keep getting asked: Yes, we are still recruiting members.
