    The History of Dynamis Bums

    Chapter 1 - Early June 2004

    Fatman “Hey Radav ya know what would be cool?”
    *waits ten minutes*
    Fatman “Hey Radav ya know what would be cool?”
    *waits ten minutes*
    Fatman “Hey Radav ya know what would be cool?”
    *some time later*
    Radav “Hey Fatman ^^ what mission are you on?
    Fatman “Did you get my message?!?”
    Radav “No, I must have zoned”
    *Can’t believe he always says that crap when I know he got the message because I didn’t get the message saying the tell was not received*
    Fatman “Know what would be cool?”
    Radav “What?”
    Fatman “When I get a million gil I wanna get a timeless hourglass and do dynamis”
    Radav “Ya I wanna do that too, how much gil do you have?”
    Fatman “13k”
    Radav “Well I have enough gil and would buy the glass but you need a lot of level 65+ for that”
    Fatman “Well everyone in AS would go and I’m sure a few people in Dawn would go plus I know a lot of people in Fury and OZcorps who don’t have an hnmls but could go.”
    Radav “Yeah that’s a great idea, I’m glad I thought of it! I’ll ask my JP friends and everyone in WingsofAlexander.”
    Fatman “I’m rank 10 btw”
    Radav “WTF!”
    Fatman “Matsuri helped me, Savka, and Duet do rank 10 yesterday”
    Radav “Aww man you said you would wait for me why didn’t you?”
    Fatman “Sorry, Zoned”

    Ok I exaggerated a little but that is basically where it started, just two guys talking about end game stuff and before you know it, we planned our first run (well Radav pretty much did all the planning). I think Radav had some similar discussions with Sykes too (only difference was instead of 13k Sykes had 13 million)

    First thing Radav did was create a new dynamis linkshell. He named it DynamisSouls after the hnmls AwakenedSouls (I had wanted to name it either Fatboys or Candyland, but I did not complain). He gave Helm and I sacks to help hand out pearls.

    Radav put the word out and did a lot of research before our first run. I’m not sure where he got all of his info but I know Eltia was a big help as well as other websites.. I posted a message on the OZcorps forums inviting anyone who was able to enter dynamis to come (even though I was a four letter word in that linkshell since my departure )

    And so the first NA dynamis run on the Phoenix server was scheduled for...

    6/19/2004 - Dynamis Bastok

    We used a strategy similar to what we still use to this day. We noobed up the boss pull but we were very proud that we got that far our first attempt. JP told us we did excellent job for it being our very first attempt. We all split the cost of the Timeless Hourglass and we died ALOT (ahh the sweet memories).


    Radav was the boss
    Duet was our main puller
    Prophecize and Helm were the melee leaders
    Fatman and Sykes were later asked to help watch the treasure pool (lame)





    Chapter 2 (Our first cycle through the four cities)

    Radav Hey Fatman^^
    Fatman Hello!
    Radav Ok, our first run wasn’t too bad, I’m gonna schedule Dynamis-Sandoria for Wednesday night.
    Fatman Shouldn’t we do Bastok again since we lost?
    Radav Well some AF doesn’t drop in Bastok so I think we should just cycle through all of the cities one time first.
    Fatman Black Mage AF doesn’t drop in Sandoria…
    Radav ?
    Fatman Would you like me to shove that Monster Signa up your ass?
    Radav Wha?
    Fatman Misstell
    Radav
    Fatman I think Sandoria is a great idea!

    Dynamis Runs ( 2 through 4)
    6/21/04 - Dynamis-Sandoria
    7/8/04 - Dynamis-Jeuno
    7/18/4 - Dynamis-Windurst

    Dynamis-Sandoria proved to be too weak as we beat this zone our first try and scored our first victory in Dynamis. Actually we are 7 for 7 with this zone now.

    Dynamis-Jeuno we did ok except we pulled the boss incorrectly and lost.

    Dynamis-Windurst DON’T AGGRO THE HOUSE MORONS!! (I don’t wanna talk about it)

    We all died so much in these first 4 runs and quite frankly we weren’t doing all that good. Our record was 1 win and 3 losses and a ton of lost experience (we used to do raise one a lot and even home point). To make matters worse people were constantly arguing in the link shell chat and abusing the rule about no talking in link shell chat. Also there were some issues with members from different non-dynamis link shells not liking each other. Radav was getting frustrated because of the cliques that we could see forming. To us this was a way to do something that wasn’t possible with a single link shell. Radav wanted everyone to cooperate and follow rules and although he tried it was a job one man could not do alone. Everyone had a different opinion on what the rules should be like and discussion on the links shell chat always led to arguing.

    I got Masx to let us use the Fury message boards but not many people got involved in the discussion. Radav asked Sykes and I to help but we weren’t really much help I think. Sykes was having health problems and I well… I’m lazy!

    I could see with each passing run and each passing day Radav was growing more and more frustrated talking about quitting the game until one frightful day in July when all the frustration came to a mighty crescendo known as DYNAMIS-BASTOK!!!


    Chapter 3 – Chaos.. Bastok is thy name

    (Shortly after our 7/21/04 Dynamis-Bastok Run)


    Radav This sucks no one is doing their job in dynamis and I don’t know what to do
    Fatman Break some pearls!
    Sykes I can’t believe we lost that bad in Bastok
    Radav We did so well after some of us home pointed and came back in and continued with 20 people?
    Sykes Yes, well everyone was supposed to home point but some people refused.
    Fatman Break their damn pearls!!
    Radav I ‘m going to make a new linkshell and invite only the 50 most dedicated people into it.
    Fatman Screw that, just break some pearls. I’ll do it myself if you don’t have the hair!
    Sykes Who shot that Quadav up above and caused that big mess anyhow?
    Radav I’m not sure but it was a ranged attack so it must have been a Ranger
    Fatman Break all the Ranger’s pearls!!!
    Radav But at the end we had 20 people and we were flying through mobs a lot easier than with 60.
    Sykes Yes, that was fun.
    Radav Ya, I’m definitely making a new linkshell
    Fatman Can I make it?
    Radav Sure but why?
    Fatman So I can break pearls!
    Radav You already can break pearls
    Fatman I can’t break your pearl or Helm’s or Sykes’s…
    Radav Ok I’m gonna make the new link shell
    Fatman Fine, do you want me to help pay for it?
    Radav Sure! It’s like 8k
    Fatman Well ok, I have 750 gil but I can farm later tonight…
    Radav Don’t worry about it I have enough gil.
    Sykes Man, after I bought that Shining Cloth and had a Noble’s Tunic crafted I’m down to my last 10 million ;;

    7/21/04 – Dynamis-Bastok

    This was the run that broke the Camel’s (Radav’s) back. People were trying to solo scorpions. Other people were not listening to their alliance leaders. People were swearing at other member and offending them in /tell. And to top it all off someone targeted a mob above us and got us all killed and trapped with no ability to re-raise. This is what I am aware of and keep in mind at this point I was just a link shell helper not really all that involved in leadership so I can imagine the living hell Radav was going through.

    Radav ordered the linkshell to home point and some of us did while others argued that it was useless. Some people didn’t even have their home point set and acted like it was a mistake. Eventually about 20 of us were unweakened at the beginning of the zone mostly furious because we home pointed while some 30 other self-indulged pansies refused too. I don’t remember who first suggested it but we decided to just farm what we could with 20 people and it turned out to be the funnest experience up to that point for me in dynamis. We breezed through quite a few mobs before time ran out with minimal deaths and great cooperation. Had we not been able to do that I am convinced Radav would have given up on dynamis that day, but instead he decided to re-form the linkshell with 50 people (somehow it ended up being 63) who he knew would take orders and do their best to win. Some people got left out due to oversights and miscommunication but they eventually found their way back to us.

    And so was born a new link shell named DynamisBums. Radav chose the name Bums because that’s what he calls us all in /tell anyhow. Lol.

    In the new linkshell Radav was still da boss while Sykes and Fatman were his co-leaders.

    Other members who took up varying degrees of leadership during runs included Helm, Prophecize, Elmekia, Satire, Teorem, Zumi, and Reticulex.

    Chapter 4 - July, 25, 2005 – A new beginning

    Radav We should have close to 64 people coming for the new linkshell. I’m gonna have Helm hand out pearls. Can you help him?.
    Fatman Yes, but if he pets me, I’m not going to be a happy camper.

    --6:46 PM E.S.T—
    Fatman I hate you
    Radav Wha??
    Fatman Did you even tell anyone Helm was handing out pearls too?
    Radav Hmm let me see.
    Fatman
    Radav I told Teorem
    Fatman
    *Helm pets Fatman*

    So, with a new pearl and a somewhat different roster (see above), we set out to do our second 4 city cycle.

    7/25/04 – Dynamis-Bastok
    We did great getting through the zone. We all gathered together at the residential area and the boss pull was successful. Immediately upon the death of the boss, what seemed like 100 mobs spawned right on top of all of us. Moments later we were all dead. It was an honest mistake so Radav wasn’t too discouraged. We knew we would beat this zone next time if we pulled the boss elsewhere. Somehow Aeth, Subhuman, and Zymurgy managed to touch the ??? before they died ><.

    7/28/04 – Dynamis-Sandoria
    Our second trip into Sandoria resulted in another easy victory for the linkshell. We now had notched two victories, unfortunately they were both Dynamis-Sandoria.

    8/1/04 – Dynamis-Jeuno
    In our second trip to Jeuno we got a much needed victory for linkshell morale. Most of the people I talk to regularly are having a much better time in dynamis than our first cycle through. The linkshell still has its problems though. That first day Radav and I talked about starting a dynamis linkshell, I know we both envisioned beating the Dynamis Lord as our most important goal. Unfortunatley, the attitude most people are conveying is that they are here to get AF while spending as little money and exp as possible. Unfortunately none of the leaders are too keen on the idea of finding very many new people so we just continue to tolerate the attitudes.

    8/8/04 – Dynamis-Windurst
    We lost horribly our first attempt and our second attempt was another horrible defeat. At this point many people are questioning if our linkshell is even capable of beating this zone. Radav as always offers words of encouragement but even I am wondering if we can do it. At this point we agree to continue doing Windurst until we win.

    Chapter 5 – Windurst Woes

    Radav Do you think we need to change anything about the way we do Windurst?
    Fatman Yes
    Radav Ok what?
    Fatman We need to remove some of the people who think their poop doesn’t have odor and get some people in the link shell that don’t whine all the time.
    Radav Is something wrong?
    Fatman Well, everyone is complaining about priority and I came up with the most fair system I could and everyone hates it.
    Radav I like it.
    Fatman Yeah, well, like I care what you think
    Radav Wha??
    Fatman Miss
    Radav Ohh
    Fatman Well, anyhow about Windurst. Obviously the “death” house is going to be a bit iffy every run, but I think we need to separate the melee from the BLM alliance more and especially at the SMN house…

    BLM Alliance (Neck deep in Dynamis Windurst)
    Radav ok guys the death house is up next stay to your right and hug the wall, no cutting corners.
    Wrish You might want to say that in link shell chat Radav
    Radav /l ok guys the death house is up next stay to your right and hug the wall, no cutting corners.
    Zymurgy /l DON’T AGGRO THE HOUSE MORONS <call21>.
    Helm /l leaders in link shell chat only please
    Radav ok Duet, when everyone is across we will pull the next house
    Prophecize /l AGGRO
    Elmekia /l IDIOTS!
    Shizune /l O_O
    General /l someone agro
    Cybaster /l -_- ohhnoes!~
    Radav Don’t run just die and we can re-raise
    Wrish You might want to say that in link shell chat Radav
    Radav /lDon’t run just die and we can re-raise
    Fatman People are still running. Me and Dssan are back before the house and they just trained stuff here.
    Wrish Switching to tank gear
    Radav /lDon’t run just die and we can re-raise! C’mon guys
    Prophecize /lStop running!
    Fatman I still see people running
    Radav /lDon’t run just die and we can re-raise! Your wasting time you’re gonna die anyhow!
    Wrish Fatman why didn’t you aspir Ifrit before it killed you?
    Fatman ok the mobs finally caught them they are dead now
    Radav They must not have seen what I said
    Fatman No, that’s not it, you can’t fake that kind of stupidity.
    Radav Does anyone still have aggro?
    Fatman the mobs are returning to the house, and on a side note how are Zymurgy and Subhuman still alive?

    30 minutes later
    Radav Is everyone back up and ready to go?
    Wrish You might want to say that in link shell chat Radav
    Radav /l Is everyone back up and ready to go?
    Prophecize /l All melee alliances are ready to go.
    Radav Ok at the SMN house all BLMs will help with sleepga.
    Wrish You might want to say that in link shell chat Radav.
    Radav /l Ok at the SMN house all BLMs will help with sleepga.
    Fatman Radav, the melee need to stand far back from the BLM alliance and pull the Oracles away from the avatars.

    Radav I am soo mad! Why do idiots keep aggroing the death house and what are we supposed to do about the Avatars!
    Fatman As I mentioned before, the melee need to stand far back from the BLM alliance and pull the Oracles away from the avatars. As far as the death house I really don’t know.
    Radav I almost threw my PC across the room. This sucks so bad.
    Fatman You’re telling me, my lots suck on AF, I don’t think I will ever get any.
    Radav
    Fatman What I mean by “my lots suck on AF” is I’m really disappointed that we didn’t win even though I need this AF.
    Radav …!
    Fatman That was a typo. Replace the word AF with the word “zone” and the phrase “even though I” with “many people”
    Radav Ohh, for a second there you sounded like half the people in the ls who are here for AF only.
    Fatman I’m not just in dynamis for AF. I want relic weapon too.
    Radav Wha?!?
    Fatman err. That’s what Teorem just messaged me.
    Radav I find it hard to believe Teorem would say that.
    Fatman It’s always the people you least expect man.

    8/8/04 – Dynamis-Windurst
    Members in Attendance: 63
    Result: Fail

    8/11/04 - Dynamis-Windurst
    Members in Attendance: 59
    Result: Fail

    8/15/04 - Dynamis-Windurst
    Members in Attendance: 51
    Result: Success

    We ended up doing Windurst three times in a row before we won. We almost ran out of time when we won, but Radav and I were both extremely excited about having beaten Windurst. It was kind of ironic that only 51 people showed up and we won.

    The link shell is still having problems with people fighting. Some people have told me in private that they are done with dynamis for this reason. In my opinion the biggest problem with the link shell is that people spend all week in the same link shell with friends then they come to dynamis and tend to favor their friends from their regular link shell. An argument ensues and people take sides. Radav has already removed a few people from the link shell, but as I will find out later, being the leader of a dynamis link shell is insanely taxing. 99% of the time that you take action to make people happy it backfires. For every five people you make happy another five become angry because of what you did to make people happy. As we will later find out the best only way to lead a dynamis link shell is to do what you believe is fair and right and ignore the accusations of injustice.

    At this point the plan is to do all four cities in a row, win them, then move on to Dynamis-Beaucedine. This should be a piece of cake since we have a solid strategy for each city now, but as we found out so many times, things just don’t always work out for the best in dynamis.

    Chapter 6 – Third times a charm?!?

    Radav Hey, Fatman I can’t come to Dynamis-Sandoria next week.
    Fatman Cancel it?
    Radav I was hoping you would lead the run
    Fatman Did you ask Sykes?
    Radav He said he would watch the treasure pool but his back has been giving him serious problems so he can’t really lead.
    Fatman If they piss me off can I break some pearls
    Radav Don’t worry I’m gonna have Helm and Prophecize help you out by leading the alliances. All you really need to do is set the alliances up and contact everyone to see if they are coming.
    Fatman I’m not positive how the melee alliances are setup
    Radav I’ll e-mail you my alliance spreadsheet and contact list
    Fatman You have spreadsheets?!?
    Radav I know it’s lame but it really helps.
    Fatman Ohh man you should see my spreadsheet!
    Radav ?
    Fatman I have every member listed with each run attended, AF obtained, relic weapons obtained, zones needed, and all kinds of other stuff.
    Radav Are you serious?
    Fatman I have a spreadsheet with every members name, job, and AF obtained by zone
    Radav Cool.
    Fatman Instead of writing the zone name under the AF piece obtained I cut and pasted those little colored zone names from Mysterytour and use them to fill in cells for each AF a member obtains.
    Radav Umm.. Wow that’s ahh cool.
    Radav It must take you forever to update it.
    Fatman It does but it’s worth it.
    Radav Really? It’s worth it? How so?
    Fatman Well If I didn’t do that then people would complain. Because I post that information, people love the Dynamis Linkshell and turn down hnm hunts to come.
    Fatman. If I didn’t gather such important information people would act greedy and not show up for zones they have AF for, but since they can see that other people need help they always come.
    Radav WTF?
    Fatman …?
    Radav People complain all the time about your priority system, lots of people would rather camp Bune than do Dynamis, lots of people act greedy all the time, and lots of people only come for zones they can get AF in.
    Fatman Really?
    Radav Yes, really, lol
    Fatman I had no idea I thought this linkshell was like a family.
    Radav Have you been drinking?
    Fatman Um… Ya…why?

    8/18/04 – Dynamis-Bastok
    Members in attendance: 56
    Result: Win
    Finally a smooth Dynamis-Bastok run. We won pretty easily and now we know where to pull the boss.

    Result: Loss
    We were doing very well and had plenty of extra time so we decided to do some farming before the boss pull. This is when we discovered the trap idol that re-spawns all the mobs at the Auction House. We all died and raised up but we were stuck behind a massive amount of mobs at the Auction House so we just called it a day.

    8/25/04 – Dynamis-Jeuno
    Members in attendance: 50
    Result: Win
    We came back and won easily. We decided not to get too fancy after what happened the previous run.

    9/01/04 – Dynamis-Sandoria
    Members in attendance: 54
    Result: Win
    This was the first time Radav couldn’t come to Dynamis so he asked Sykes and I to lead the run. Nobody and I mean nobody else wanted to help lead the run so I sorta led it. I kinda just had the alliance leaders do all the work and I threw out a few words of wisdom once in a while. I also found new respect for Radav. Messaging 60+ people to see if they can come to dynamis is a lot of work. Back in these days Radav used to message everyone before each run (except me /></).

    9/05/04 – Dynamis-Windurst
    Members in attendance: 48
    Result: Loss
    Same old Windurst with the same old problems. I was confident that our strategy could work but it just seemed like every time someone would make a mistake and cost us the win.

    So this our third city cycle we did noticeably better than before. Bastok, Jeuno, and Sandoria were now easy prey, so our new focus was on a way to defeat Dynamis-Windurst. It was around this time that Radav and I were discussing leaving FFXI amongst our selves a lot. With each passing Windurst run we edged ever so closely to insanity…


    Chapter 7 – DON’T AGGRO THE HOUSE MORONS


    Radav Hey Fatman^^
    Fatman Hi
    Radav You ready to do Northlands dynamis?
    Fatman Hell yes
    Radav I’m gonna post a Dynamis-Beaucedine event for next week.
    Fatman Don’t bother
    Radav why?!?
    Fatman Only 37 people have cleared the first 4 cities and I wouldn’t even expect all 37 to show up.
    Radav Ohh so you keep that information on your spreadsheet too?
    Fatman Who the hell told you about the spreadsheet?!!
    Radav Um… you did.
    Fatman Oh ok.
    Radav What zones do we need to clear to get more people access?
    Fatman >.>
    Radav
    Fatman <.<
    Radav ...
    Fatman WINDURST
    Radav >.<
    Radav I’m sure we can win if no one screws up at death house of summoner house
    Fatman “not” screwing up at Dynamis-Windurst would be like me buying corn flakes instead of frosted flakes.
    Radav Wha?!?
    Fatman I always get frosted flakes, it’s like corn flakes but with “free” frosted goodness.
    Radav
    Fatman Thy’rrre grrrrrrrrrreeattt!!!
    Radav Well we beat Windurst with 40 last time so we can do it
    Fatman More like 50 but whatever
    Fatman we should do Bastok and Jeuno one more time too then I’m sure we will have enough for Beaucedine.
    Radav Ok so two weeks from Sunday we do our first Dynamis-Beaucedine
    Fatman Riiiggghhttt…

    9/5/04 – Dynamis-Windurst
    Members in Attendance: 48
    Result: Loss
    Same old Windurst. I think Astral Flow got us on this one and since melee were so close to BLM alliance everyone got wiped out.


    9/8/04 – Dynamis-Windurst
    Members in Attendance: 58
    Result: Loss
    Radav asked every member personally to come to this one. If I remember correctly someone aggroed the death house on this one.

    9/12/04 – Dynamis-Bastok
    Members in Attendance: 48
    Result: Loss
    We decided to go whoop up on Bastok to lift member morale after the two failed Windurst runs. Cleared it easily with time to spare for some AF farming.

    9/15/04 – Dynamis-Windurst
    Members in Attendance: 33
    Result: WTF
    Some people decided to camp Behemoth and Serket due to server reset. Another group that was on its way decided to just go to Bune instead. Sykes and I were both angry, but when Radav told us that about 30 people who committed to coming were hunting nms instead and didn’t even tell him, I was over the top fired up. This is when I promised myself that I would convince Radav one way or another to let more people join the link shell. It wasn’t the fact that people think Bune is better than Dynamis (everyone is entitled to their opinion) but to commit to coming then just not show up for Bune or any HNM for that matter is just plain rude to everyone who took the time to show up. I took everyone’s name that came and apologized to them. I knew at this point that this linkshell was doomed if more people weren’t allowed to join. Having one hnmls decide not to come could potentially end a run. Some more prominent members of a couple hnmls’s actually messaged me and/or Radav and hinted that if rules weren’t changed to their liking then they would just make their own dynamis linkshell. I won’t mention any names but since I never said it before but I’ll say it now to those people. “Suck It!!”


    9/19/04 – Dynamis-Windurst
    Members in Attendance: 64
    Result: Loss
    Radav begged everyone to come personally this run and the next one. We were doing fine each time but a screwed up RDM NM pull, a death house, and an Astral Flow proved to be our downfall again


    9/26/04 – Dynamis-Windurst
    Members in Attendance: 57
    Result: Loss
    See last run synopsis


    9/29/04 – Dynamis-Windurst
    Members in Attendance: 58
    Result: Win
    Finally a win. Everything didn’t go smoothly but we pulled out the win. We vowed to never return to Windurst again. Once again Radav spent hours messaging each and every member to get them to come. I’m not sure but Sykes may have helped him out I don’t remember.

    9/26/04 – Dynamis-Sandoria
    Members in Attendance: 51
    Result: Win
    Radav didn’t have to beg people to come and it showed with only 51 members in attendance. Sandoria was still a relatively easy win.


    9/26/04 – Dynamis-Jeuno
    Members in Attendance: 49
    Result: Win
    We got 3 wins in a row for the first time, but not many people seem to be having fun. Hopefully Dynamis-Beaucedine will change that.



    This was easily the worst stretch of dynamis runs. So many deaths and raise one’s. I remember dying at least 6 times a run. To make matters worse people were still arguing constantly and whining to Radav about this person or that person. People were giving out raise 3 and raise 1 selectively and not listening to orders. At this point I’m still not much of a leader, I’m still 99% behind the scenes. At one point here Radav posted a message for Sykes and I saying he could not lead dynamis anymore and asked us to take over. I’m not sure but I think it was all the stress of having to be the only care taker at a day care center for 60 screaming 5 year olds. I know his schedule became limited but I’m guessing the main reason was the stress. I get all kinds of complaints the day of dynamis, and I’m sure Radav gets twice as many as me and back then he got all the complaints. Fortunately Radav didn’t leave us and I believe new life was breathed into the linkshell with our sites now set on Dynamis-Beaucedine…

    Result: Loss
    We lost our first try, but we weren’t expecting to win. Ok, maybe Radav was but the rest of us are pessimistic.


    10/6/04 – Dynamis-Sandoria
    Members in Attendance: 51
    Result: Win
    Only 47 showed up in Beaucedine so we did this to get more people access to Beaucedine.


    10/10/04 – Dynamis-Beaucedine
    Members in Attendance: 43
    Result: Loss
    We did some digging and managed to figure out where exactly to go for all time extensions. We tried the boss but didn’t have the correct strategy for the dragons and we lost. We did Sandoria so more people could come to Beaucedine this time so of course 4 “less” people showed up.


    10/13/04 – Dynamis-Jeuno
    Members in Attendance: 49
    Result: Win
    Only 43 showed up in Beaucedine so we did this to get more people access to Beaucedine.


    10/17/04 – Dynamis-Beaucedine
    Members in Attendance: 48
    Result: Loss
    Still something was missing from our strategy on how to handle the dragons and we nubbed it up again. Good news was a whopping 48 members came so there is still some interest. Bad news was Radav was resorting to in game /tells again to get people to show up.


    10/20/04 – Dynamis-Bastok
    Members in Attendance: 36
    Result: Win
    Only 48 showed up in Beaucedine so we did this to get more people access to Beaucedine. Only 36 in attendance but we won anyhow.


    10/24/04 – Dynamis-Beaucedine
    Members in Attendance: 49
    Result: Loss
    So close to the win. Radav got some info on the dragon strategy over on Bahamut server from I believe Veritas on theorderls.com forums. He must have missed something because the dragons ended up coming back too soon and we lost.


    10/27/04 – Dynamis-Beaucedine
    Members in Attendance: 51
    Result: Win
    Finally got the strategy down and won. What a relief. At first I thought it was strange that attendance held up through all the losses but I guess people are willing to die for Uber AF that drops in Beaucedine. People aren’t so willing to die for Windurst AF.


    11/03/04 – Dynamis-Beaucedine
    Members in Attendance: 40
    Result: Loss
    Just a bad experience altogether. Not a good combination of jobs and a lot of no shows. Our intention was to get everyone who missed coming for the key item last time to complete it this time but not many showed up.


    At this point in our history a lot of people were leaving FFXI. Others lost interest in dynamis for one reason or another and still others were upset over not getting the AF they “deserved” . We had brought in new members occasionally but only if they had good references and were considered a good player. Of course this left out the fact that many people had been reaching level 70 who our group didn’t know. Most of the people in DynamisBums were what I consider the NA release high levels. We represented linkshells that were comprised mostly of people that got the NA version at or near the end of 2003. A lot of Phoenix server history was also being made for the NA community in other ways. HNMs that had been unbeatable for NA’s for the first half of 2004 were now being killed regularly. Many new HNM ls’s also sprung to life during the early history of DynamisBums. Our server was transforming and I knew it was time for me to act. If Bums was to survive I knew what I had to do so I put my evil scheme to work…


    Chapter 9 – Invasion of the Noobs (Fatman’s Evil Plan Part 1)


    Radav Hey Fatman^^
    Fatman Hi
    Radav I agree with you I think we should cycle through the cities one more time then Beacedine before we attempt Xarcabard.
    Fatman Ok… I have a question…
    Radav Ok what?
    Fatman Can I ask a whole bunch of new people to come?
    Radav We should invite a few people who we know are good players, but some of our members will get angry if we invite a bunch of “noobs”.
    Fatman We need lots of new people and if you go by what our current members define as a good player then no one will qualify because half of them think they are better than everyone else.
    Radav We have a lot of good player in our linkshell
    Fatman Yes we do, but I don’t think just because you got the game before someone else makes you a better player.
    Radav I don’t want noobs coming in and screwing up.
    Fatman Everyone deserves a chance….
    Radav Some people just plain suck though, we can win with the members we have. NOTHING YOU SAY COULD POSSIBLY MAKE ME AGREE TO INVITE A BUNCH OF NEW PEOPLE!!!!. I believe we can win with the people we already have.

    Fatman Well according to the spreadsheet at our current pace we will have less than 40 for Xarcabard which means we will never fight Dynamis Lord.
    Radav Ok invite whoever you want.

    11/10/05 – Dyanamis-Sandoria
    Members in Attendance: 61
    Result: Win
    With 19 brand new members we went into Sandoria and had our best Sandy run up to this point. Lots of time to farm and killed the boss with ease. Some of the new guys made a few mistakes but it seemed like everyone quickly learned what to do.

    11/14/05 – Dynamis-Jeuno
    Members in Attendance: 64
    Result: Win
    How better to follow our best Sandoria run? With our best Jeuno run of course. We pulled the boss with plenty of time left because we cleared most of the zone already. These runs with all the new people re-energized me. New people get excited about there first dynamis runs and I think new people are always great for the linkshell because of that excitement. Another 10 first timers this run.


    11/17/05 – Dyanamis-Bastok
    Members in Attendance: 57
    Result: Win
    Once again we had our best run in the zone we did. Our best Bastok up until this point and we had yet another 7 brand new members with us. Attendance dropped slightly even with the new members which may seem odd but I can explain below.

    11/21/05 – Dyanamis-Windurst
    Members in Attendance: 54
    Result: Win
    A lot of people were really worried about Windurst. I was a bit nervous myself. But boy was I wrong! The noobs conquered this zone in record time and with record few casualties. This was one of the funnest runs ever for me. Another 4 brand new members joined us for this run and attendance still dropped slightly.


    11/24/05 – Dyanamis-Beaucedine
    Members in Attendance: 46
    Result: Win
    We didn’t’ really get a lot of new people access to this zone yet but we still decided to go to at least farm some AF even if only 46 people showed up. Once again our linkshell showed its prowess by breezing through another zone. Another fun run for me making it 5 in a row and a complete cycle through all 5 zones we had beaten to this point.


    There were two main reasons why even with all the new members that attendance wasn’t going over 64 a run. First, some veterans decided to take a break after 30+ dynamis runs they need some R&R. Many other veterans stopped coming at this time too. A lot of them were done with the linkshell too, some publicly and some privately telling us that our linkshell sucks. Hehe. I like to think they couldn’t handle the fact that new guys were just as good and in my opinion better than many of our veteran “My poop don’t stink” members. The veterans that did stick with us and/or took a break were exactly the people I had hoped would stay. Some other people left our server for WoW (Come back Elmekia!!!) and a few of them we were sad to see go.


    This cycle of runs marks what I consider the beginning of the modern age of DynamisBums. We had a great website running, lots of interest from our server, we were kicking some Dynamis tail, and we had overhauled the rules. My evil little plan to reform this linkshell was working better than I had hoped…

    Fatboys was good, but you have to admit, naming AwakenedSouls "McDonalds" would have been the best thing ever. EVER I SAY. Chutes and Ladders was awesome too lol

    ROFL... I guess I'll use this post to say sorry to all you people who send me tells and don't get a response. Imagine after 2 years playing this game I still don't pay attention to the chat log. Don't ever expect to get a response from me when I'm xping. Anyway yah Fatman is about right on that. There are some more fun facts I'd like to share about this.

    1. Asking Tru's linkshell EndofNM to join with us to attempt this and basically being blown off. I was told they had more then enough people to do Dynamis on their own and that I should look into getting other people to go with us. I took that statement as a You suck go to hell so I was more then happy to look into other/better means. Well shortly after that, my shortlived HNM LS killed Genbu and Tru quit. A few weeks later we started going to Dynamis with most of what was left of Tru's LS. Tru if your reading this :P :P :P :P

    2. If your wondering where I got all this information well I had many many many people who helped me. I read various posts on a bunch of bulletin boards etc. etc. But Eltia, Duet, Liaxa, Vermilion, and so many others helped me more then you could imagine to get all the information we needed to put together what was a very successful first run.

    3. I had a three but forgot I'll see if I remember any other stuff and put it here later. LOL

    Oh yea such a long time ago I remember all the death and stuff, and arguing I think the worse part of DynamisSouls was all the swearing and stuff people arguing all the time, but we did get a lot better since then.

    AS was like the best HNM ls ever, too bad it disband after we finally killed the tiger. I really wanted to fight Kirin, I bet we could have won.

    Zumi said it best. AS forever. I love all of you

  10. I remember the time General suicided the Dynamis - Jeuno boss and we finally managed to beat it (Remember the first time we pulled it, then a minute later 60+ mobs came rushing at the Mog House where we were since we thought that the mog house was safe... *cough*bastok*cough*). Of course, General still needed it, so it was suggested that we do what Sheila did ( http://rinoa.nu/mymind/ ) which was all of us to do a massive suicide to clear the path for General to get the ???. Unfortunately out of 60 people only about 20 or so went. I somehow made it to the Mog House unscathed (at which point the goblins proceeded to kill me) and found out that you can rezone into Dynamis - Jeuno and it's a safer spot to pull than from the palace. Unfortunately this is the memory that most characterizes my experiences with Dynamisbums. Though it looks like you guys have fixed that for the most part.
