Actually, their friend list most likely only shows the current location of the player, as in floor and general area (city/forst/etc).
When Sachi hid herself, Kirito used his Tracking Skill to locate her. If the friend list showed the exact location, her guild members wouldn't have had to go out looking for her.

I was just joking, but in fact I think the "friend tracker" is more accurate than that. After all, Kirito was able to gallop right up to Yoruko's location with Asuna b/c Yoruko and Asuna were friends.

And according to information others have mentioned from the LN, Sachi couldn't be located because

That's not how it works actually.

Thanks for clarifying, since in Ep.5 Kirito talked about fairness in SAO, so I thought that pinpointing a player's location, even your friends, is a bit too much.

Gee... Is that dragon a boss monster or what? Seems tough.

If because of the CG(3D animation) that it is a boss monster, I am scared of playing an MMORPG game where look-alike boss monsters are 3D.

Hmm, so what if you lost track of your party member in the map and "Track" skill does not work in that particular map?

Kirito is still stronger than her so she'd fail there.

Except that they're in a town, and players can't take damage in a town. Her spasm of jealous rage would have to last long enough for her to get them out of town.

That, and the fight scene could've been better. I wish it was a bit longer too, but the episode was still entertaining to watch nonetheless.

I really like the part where Kirito ran vertically, and fell. It was rather cute how he emerged from the hole where he fell, and explained that he could've succeeded if it wasn't for the limited space. What a cute kid.

Ah, Asuna. Her scenes were short, but it was a blessing to see her in the episode. Her interaction with Kirito was just amusing to watch. haha

Do note that this happens in the 55th floor, the front line is quite a few floors up.

Just the scene of the dragon's breath attack being deflected by Kirito using a simple sword skill is enough to show that his level (which by now should be over 80) gives him an overwhelming advantage.

If it was me, my first thought would be to go check the death list to see if that member still alive or not.

Okay... So you looked at the death list and found out he is not dead yet... What do you do?

They are saving the budget for fights in the actual main story. At least I hope that's what's happening

It's still better than the tab-based "click 1 2 3 5 3 rinse repeat" combat that is prevalent in MMOs today though (though we're now starting to see action game mechanics at least partially in MMOs like Tera/GW2/TSW/Raiderz and "pretend MMOs" like Vindictus/D9)

@lightbringer I wish there were more MMO's like Dragon Nest, i love the combat system in that MMO. It's main issue is that in order to efficiently play it you have to buy more storage and stat increasers with real money (or overpay in game money massively).

This was the first episode i saw after the first episode. I really like the music. I wonder how long they've been stuck in the world though.

It started in November 2022, by episode 7 it is June 2024, so a ~20 months.

In that case, I will check our usual meeting places such as a bar or more luxuriously, a home. No result then I'll gather a search team back to that area (no, I won't go by myself, too dangerous). If we have searched for one day and one night, then I'll call the whole thing off. After a systematic search, if we still couldn't find him it only mean either he's dead or hiding. With the latter, no point to worry about that guy.

And I assumed by "lost track" you mean I also couldn't chat or mail him.

Lol at that mmos. When I see games, characters where you "press 1 to win" I just lolz.
I remember my Wow TBC lock sl/sl arena times, had like 60 buttons configurations to remember. With macros that were used for 3-5 targets/situations. Every button had modificators, not to mention managing 2 targets and their pets, yourself your healer and your pet XD. Managing 5+ targets in real time, fun times it was.
Or you could go Stormherald warrior and just press 1 2 3 to win ^^.

Okay thanks. Wow that's a bit of time to be stuck there. But they managed to make it all the way to level 55 so i guess they are progressing. I really like Kirito's friend that he made in the first episode, so i hope we see him again.

Why did you jump from episode 1 to episode 7?

And the current frontline is somewhere around floor 70 not 55.
