    I'm wondering what others are doing to manage their friends list in light of co-op. I have a full friend list (110 friends) that I weed out regularly to remove inactive players. I'm a (mostly) non-IAP player so I don't have ideal push-button teams or anything, but the benefits of running everything in multiplayer mode are too great for me to ignore anymore.

    The problem is when I look for friend's room I'm lucky to have one or two rooms show up and they are usually already in games or in a few cases the friend has two accounts and always plays with himself... (haha, I know how that sounds).

    Long story short... Is there something I should be doing to change out my friends to ones who are active in multiplayer? Or is there a friend board for multiplayer active players?

    You can always add more to your friends list and put yourself in Addme asking for more co op friends.

    EDIT: I have been deleting "friends" that do not let me snipe their room. Cuz what is the point of being friends then :confused:

    Then if I am your friend please delete me because I will boot people 100% of the time. lol We need private lobby so badly.


    The best way to have good coop communication is discord. Join a group or two and get to know a couple people or get to know some people here and play with them.

    Expand friend space

    Browse the add me / co-op forum / chat for people who are just looking for general co-op friend volume

    Post on the PADX gameroom -- host a room, get a bite. Or join a hosted room.

    Get discord

    After you join up with a random (as either host or guest) the game gives you the option to send them a friend request. If they're competent, request away! These are the people that are more prone to co-op in the first place, so eventually you'll start to see more open rooms and/or your open room should be quickly filled

    Thanks for the tips everyone.

    philsov - when you say join a random... what do you mean? I've never seen a random room available or had a random join one of my rooms. Am I missing something?

    Someone random from the internet. ie -- generic person on discord or the host/guest on a PDX game list.

    Someone who isn't your friend (in game / yet) but y'all got arranged somehow because one of you posted your room ID and the other picked it up.

    Ahhh... I see. I haven't ever tried that. That's what I'm missing. Thanks for clarifying.

    Usually a random would be from Discord or PADX and they put up a room (or you did) and you play together. There isn't any other way to join someone else's room without the room number at the moment if they aren't already on your friends list.

    So, I went and got discord. And I've posted rooms on the PADGuide multilayer board. And I've posted rooms on the chat feature of this forum. All have been dismal failures...

    I can't seem to find a discord server that's active. Any tips about where to find up to date server lists?

    PADGuide board and chat is just not very active.

    PadRagnarok Discord is small but active. You get to know people and there is a directory of members with leads people use.

    This for sure. I rarely have trouble finding partners for guerillas and dailies, and most of the harder deacends have peiple running them. Challenge dungeons always have people looking as well.

    Aren't the numbers exactly the same as private lobbies?

    No. I posted that like 2 weeks ago before we had the post game reconnect feature which is what I wanted. If you have ever done speed farming of tamas, SKC or Star Den then you know the numbers were excessively slow compared to what we just got.

    Thanks for all the good advice! I joined the PadRagnarok discord and played multiplayer all weekend! Awesome. :)
    I just joined the reddit channel too.

    Again... thanks for the help.

    I've had immense success with the pad reddit discord group. It's rare you can't get matched with someone within 10 seconds by posting a room for a common dungeon like dailies, rogues or guerillas, and the less common ones still usually are reasonably quick to get someone.

    Hardest on the reddit groups is getting into predra/tama/tan/skc if you're not hosting...
    Need to have fast fingers to get into those
