NM Monopolization

As we all know the monopolization of monsters in this game (Final Fantasy XI) is an annoyance and something that I understand is one of the things the development team is trying to help prevent. Currently there are certain monsters in this game which will only spawn once a day, people do not wish to fight these monsters to obtain large amounts of game currency but to acquire items which can only be obtained by defeating these monsters. Not only do these monsters only spawn once a day but there is a three hour window in which they may spawn, currently the standard method is to take as many people as possible to the area around the time the monster is due to spawn and hope to provoke it before any other linkshell. This leads to the use of third party programs in order to gain an upper hand over other people in the area something which I know Square Enix is against and after the following conversation I had with one of your GM staff I am in the understanding that it is something you are unable to detect; Marath > so unless the 3rd party program is in use when the GM investigates there is no way to catch them GM Kazrift > This limitation exists for programs that spam provoke, chii blast, etc..

    Comments: I love FFXI.I'm a hard worker in RL,much like many people,I do have time to play FFXI but like most people,I don't have hours upon hours to camp NM's. That demotivates me. I agree that a notorious monster nopolization is obvious but there are many things that can be done or at least one thing so I don't have to stay up for hours upon hours trying to hope to fight a particular NM.

    Comments: I think that this is a very good idea. I hope Square-Enix can fix this problem and take this idea into consideration.
