"Q: Will all servers be worldwide or split by territory?
A: The current plans are to have worldwide servers that are cross-platform and cross-region. We will do a beta test and look at the balance and player experience. We want to look for a good balance between region and cross-region play."

This is intresting, we will have the same systems as FFXI. I hope we wont have the issue of ping again where JP players have the advantage of have a few ms and EU, US players having very high ping and latency. This will really be an epic fail if not fixed somehow ;(

I'm all for cross region. I like talking to people from other cultures, plus I don't have to worry about a dead server outside of peak hours. I was actually a little bit concerned they wouldn't do this after reading the JPbutton Q&A where a lot of the JP respondents expressed that if given the choice they'd prefer a localized server.
