    Depends on the game. I mean, some may force the person joining to be your level no matter what, or they'll always be higher than yours or...so on.

    I'm usually a little over the level. I never run from random battles unless it's out of sheer annoyance, or very rarely, if I am about to get my ass kicked.

    I usually have problems geting them to the same level more or less than my first character.
    Cause im not going to kill some low level so he can keep up

    I level grind using my feet while trolling GBAtemp.
    In the case of Disgaea DS for example, Flonne joined in at level 5 while the rest of my party is in their 40s.

    If the game allows a party member that joins in to be stronger than you, they usually are. By far. I tend not to grind at all unless I really need too, I even tend to run from 20% or so of all random battles.

    In a game like Disgaea, though, it's all GRINDGRINDGRIND.

    I usually overlevel my party. I love to have things simple, or you could probably say I'm not much of a tactician. Anyway usually they are way weaker than my party.

    i shouldve mentioned disgaea and similair games don't count.

    hell, you got a level cap of 9999 for that game.


    btw, i'm almost done with the psp-version.
    everyone is past the 100's but flonne is still lvl 9
    she sucks

    in fact, most story characters do

    also, in disgaea its fun to grind. most of the attacks are awesome and never get old

    I meant before I even got her. On PS2, I think I hit 3 digits before even meeting Mid-boss.
    EDIT: Another example would be me grinding for almost a week on Gato before progress through Chrono Trigger. I think I hit level ~13 killing Gato then eating that food outside on a stall.

    before they join my party, they look all strong. once they join, it seems like they can barely make a scratch on the enemy.

    They're usually a LOT weaker since I have the imperative of not running away from a single battle.
    If I do that by accident, I prefer reloading the savegame [​IMG]

    The games I'm playing right now start off new members off at level 1. I'd have to say I'm usually better than that.

    Phantasy Star Portable, hmm... I hate how you only level yourself, and during missions when they rejoin my party they are about 2 or 3 levels above me, but now I don't play because I'm mad about having to beat that bastardly flying thing in that rock place...again... :-P

    Depends on the game. Some times my main people are far underpowered compaired to those who join me and some times im way over powered to them.
