As all people living in Europe who play/ed FFXI know, we got screwed over when it came to being able to participate on a level playing field with our US chums. The reasons for this are simple we have a small player base living in the wrong time zone.
Many were the times I had to stay awake until 6-8am to level, even later if I had wanted to get any of the CoP storyline done, things have improved on some servers I believe now server transfers are available.
EU servers in FFXIV would solve this, but I don't want EU servers as in WoW, I loved the feeling of playing on a global server, meeting people from all over the world, getting picked for JP parties who did things differently.
I have friends from FFXI in the US I want to stay in touch with and be able to explore the new FFXIV world with occasionally.
If I am stuck with the choice of "you are in the EU so you play on a EU server" that would be such a shame.
So I propose that all we need to do is get all the EU players together starting now so we can be on the same server/s
I would not want to be the only EU player on a predominatly JP server as has seemed the case for one guy I met online.
I do not want to be on a server that is "dead" between 4pm and 12am and therfore spend twice as long to get anything done as my US and JP counterparts.
What do you guys from the EU think, do you just want EU servers or what?
