At this point, I don't party up with people who aren't friends/alliance members, for just about anything but single run UQ"s. And the amount of salt and entitlement people have over you not daring to join their party or let them join theirs is unbelievable. With UQ's I've had people bitch I que to fast, or que to slow. Had times where I've lost my loot (I don't care if you think 13's are the only thing worth picking up. Made plenty of meseta off "junk" items with good augments, especially units). In Ultimate's/Betwitched Woods its worse. I've been drug out of ultimates to many times cuz the party leader decides their's done and thats it. (Both on accident because they didn't realize they were leader when the previous one left, and just because they didn't want to bother with giving leadership to someone else. ) I was once told "You can just go get another party." Like...nah I'm good. Solo for me now. When I've been party leader, people have decided they were done and gone off and fought the boss, without saying anything. Which makes it impossible for you to go back to the ship to restock if you want to keep going. I've been screamed at, yelled at, called names. You'd think I was denying them any loot/exp at all because I didn't want to join their party. One time me and my friend were duo-ing and people called us idiots for not spliting our party and joining the two other parties at 3/4 players. The whole situation is just toxic AF. You can't talk to some of these players they think that 40% Triboost is a gift from the pso2 gods, that will give them everything they ever wanted, and I'm denying them it. (never mind that it's just 10% they're not getting and the boost is pretty much meaningless). Put a party beacon down if you want, but leave it at that, don't harass other players, don't spam your SA's constantly calling people dumb for not joining parties. Just don't. Otherwise you'll end up on a blacklist and probably reported for harassment.
