Lol, we don't even know if we are going to be able to pick servers or if they will be assigned to us. If I remember rite when FFXI started you couldn’t pick your own server could you, idk I have only played for 2 years. What use is a Linkshell with members on 20 different servers? Plus letting people pick there own server might prove disastrous with worldwide servers because servers could become disproportionately Japanese or American and the poor saps that weren’t that nationality would be screwed. I feel there is a very good chance Square Enix will assign you a server based on time zone and language parameters so that each server’s population is relatively similar in these 2 aspects.
I agree with the others, they will not do this. They have already said they are looking into allowing people to keep their names and LS names when people move to XIV, but they have in no way said this will actually happen yet. But, they wouldn't mention it, or say they Flist will move over if they were going to assign people to random servers. It will probably be like it is now, a list of servers and you pick where you want to go.
As for this tread... I even have to say my friends and I are guilty of already putting things togther for XIV so we all know who's coming, and get on the same server. But... on the flip side I wouldnt put up my LS's name or stuff, someone might take a fancy to it and take it. XD Edited, Jun 9th 2009 4:36pm by YfandesofBismarck
