I'm sorry if this has been asked before, I didn't know how to search for this supcificly. I have a friend from Sweden, and I want to know if me and him can play together on this game. I heard that diffrent servers would be used for diffrent areas (North America, Europe, Asia) and I was hoping that was untrue or if there was a way around it.

thank you.

The servers will be international, just as it was for XI.

It'll be the same as in FFXI. Servers will be international, not localized.

EDIT: **** YOU KIRBSTER... **** ye to ****! (^.~)

As long as this thread is near the top.....let me go ahead and ask this:

Will there be a universal start time? Or will it be like XI where JP got a 6 month head start over NA then NA got a hefty head start over EU?

I heard a rumor that JP has already started Beta, but that may be false

That would be pretty good news actually. That would mean the games progress is going very quickly.
If you don't mind looking, where did you hear that from?

The most we've heard about a beta in Japan is that they hope to offer signups at TGS to participate in a focus group test.

I can confirm that the a gaming community (at this time I can't say their name) that also attended gamescom got to talk to SE staff and got an agreement with them to obtain beta keys as soon as they would make it available in Japan or worldwide. They did however not get a specific date on when the beta would be released, rather a deal on as soon as the beta (closed or open) was out they would get xx keys for their guild members.

What he means is "Alot of people will say things completely untrue on the internet simply because there is no real way of proving it and/or no accountability of truth anwyay. Thus, until cold hard evidence is supplied, I choose not to believe you."

Personally I am hoping there is a similar server structure as in XI. Also just a note, even though people are saying there will be, and in interviews it has been mentioned it more than likely will be, no one has concrete 100% said yes to fully world wide servers. Like I say Im fairly certain there will be but until then, who knows. The devs may find that their server technology with the game is better suited to regional servers.

To expand on my desires, I hope they not only are similar but actually nigh-on mirror FFXI servers, so that when it is released most people playing on IfritXI, will be playing on IfritXIV!

I wouldn't gain **** by trolling here. On the other hand, I probably will get to play the beta when they get the keys, since I know people there. I'll post screenshots and movies for your entertainment.

With that said, if you get any extra keys, throw me a PM hehe

Considering they got keys for every major MMO released since they became famous,, No, I think you are in a denial. I can also confirm, speaking with them today, that they also gotten a reservation for xx keys for SWTOR MMO. I have known these guys for roughly 5 years now and seen when they got keys for other MMO:s (LORO,AoC,Warhammer,Aion).


PS. I usually have always been able to "lend" a key from them, last game I tried this way was Aion :D
