When you create a character, will you be able to choose which server you want the character on, like we currently can in XI? Or will they throw everyone on random servers and charge us to transfer like XI did for the first 4-5 years?

Perhaps it's been answered, or perhaps it's so obvious that no one thought to ask. If you don't get to play with your friends from XI though, I don't really see the point.

Mellowy is awesome, now.

I seem to remember them mentioning that you'd be able to choose your server, but I can't find the link anywhere, so I'm not sure.

if FFXIV have the same names for the servers as FFXI, then there will be lots of drama LOL

I believe what Mostaru is getting at is that most people are complaining heavily about how similar things are to FFXI. Thus if the servers are named the same it will just bring out more of the "SE needs more creativity" arguments and thats where the drama lies.

I would assume so, since SE has stated that they want people to transfer from FFXI to FFXIV with their friends. The easiest way to do this would be to just let people pick the server they want to join instead of trying to equate ffxi servers to ffxiv servers.

I say SE learned there lesson from FFXI and there World Pass system. It was good in theory, but the 1k price tag in game was a bit too much if two people were wanting to start off together.
