MM doesn’t have any rules to it. Players abusing the vote kick feature to force their “community rules” on players is the issue and should be bannable. Use Party Finder if you want people to use x battle items. MM is to join random players you are matched with and clear the content without any specific conditions, which you can apply if you use PF.
Personally I only use PF, but if I do mm on rare occasions, I expect nothing from random people as it could be a new player who doesn’t have battle items or don’t know any “community enforced standards”, someone who’s waiting for Lost Ark 2, someone with 0 engravings, etc. If you expect anything specific from MM, that’s a you problem, and not the other players.
When you join a group that specifically states they are going to do something and went out of there way to join a party to find other likeminded players also willing to do that something being asked you are surprised these players do that something?
You didn’t join matchmaking with any such prior agreements with anybody, you got queued up with 3 other random players who may or may not want to do something, or even anything at all.
That is why you join MM if you want to just roll the dice on a smooth run and you join PF if you want a more controlled experience.
I’m not gonna lie, I got so bored when i was running Kung every day that most of the time I forgot as well lol. Plenty of times i covered for another or they covered for me simply because we zoned out during the fight and forgot.
Maybe the boredom of all these dailies causes brain damage.
Most people you run into in MM aren’t trying to make the fight longer out of malice, they want in and out just as you want in and out.
People enforce stupid rules. I got kicked once for using Destruction bombs for phase 1 of the fight after people didn’t follow the party order rule. So now I solo every run. The rules are worthless so I’m not gonna bother. Game’s eating shit anyway.
Those who die without using a potion or those who don’t use a feather after dying, those who don’t have an opti, those who don’t have lv.7 gems, those who don’t have the right card sets, those that don’t play the right classes, those that aren’t lv.150 roster. We should kick all that, so we will stay between us, elitists and toxic.
