There are many different types of linkshells out there and, even then, not everyone is cut out for dynamis. Here are a few things to consider before you move onto the next step in the application process:

Deaths: If you are upset with dying a few times a week or you can never find time to make up lost experience points, please reconsider dynamis. We do the best we can to keep everyone alive as much as possible, but events can be unpredictable and, no matter what you do, people die. We cannot always afford to R3 everyone, if the thought of taking an R1 upsets you, you probably won't be happy in dynamis anywhere.

Distribution: There are many different types of systems to distribute items. These range from very free systems where you simply pay an entry fee and lot what you want, to very strict systems with required attendance hours and pre-selection of who gets what. SM uses the latter system. If you would like to simply go in whenever you want with no commitment and try your luck at a piece of armor, SM is not for you. It is possible that you spend a few months without getting any drops before you come up on top for lotting rights. Please consider this before applying.

Rules: If you are the kind of person who doesn't like rules, SM is not for you. We like to keep order. People are expected to do their best and work hard. Read carefully over the rules section and make sure that things aren't too stuffy or too lax for you.

Atmosphere: If you do not have a sense of humor SM is not for you. We strive to be professional while still providing a fun and comfortable atmosphere. Nevertheless, it's hard to balance these values and while some people feel very comfortable with how we run things, some don't. You will be spending a lot of time with us, take your trial time to decide if we are right for you. We will do our best to incorporate you into the team and you will need to do your best to fit in and find your place in the shell.

You should consider these previous issues with any shell you choose to join. If you decide you still want to apply, we're glad and if not, we hope you investigate other shells. We wish you the best wherever you choose to go.
