I think I remember a topic about this before, but I am either blind (entirely possible) or senile. Anyways, this is not a subject that really "maters" to me. However, based on that interview on FFXIV CORE, it appears we know the name of the test server: Shadowlord. Keeping this in mind, I also remember an older interview talking about how they would not be going with summon names like in FFXI, but would be doing FF themed server names. So putting these two pieces of information together, what will be the new theme? Well I am thinking one of three possible scenarios: 1. FFXI NM Names, 2. FF Main Enenmy names from across the series, 3. Famous FF characters from across the series (not limited to bad guys only). Maybe I am on the right track, and maybe I am not. However, if I am on the right track, I really hope SE strays away from the overly popular names like Cloud or Sephiroth. Can you even imagine the server congestion? On the other hand, I would know what servers not to join. LOL. Anyways just fun speculation, not really a major concern for me. I would still play even if they gave generic names like server 1, server 2, server 3..... Comments, suggestions, opinions?

It seems logical that they would use XI NM names. A nice little tribute to adventures past.

I'd prefer that SE doesn't scatter the FFXI community by changing the names of the servers. I was looking forward to a reunion with a number of people from the Siren server in FFXIV. I guess I could get over it if SE does change the names, but losing friends in the shuffle wouldn't be a good thing.

Go start a thread in the FFXI Siren forum about where people might move in FFXIV when the server list comes out then. Or start one here. It's just a server name.

I can see it all... the most popular server will be... the "Maat" server!

Not an end boss, but imagine playing on Rufus server.

Outsiders would wonder if there were servers called Cletus and Wayne, also.

If we're thinking XI NPC names then I hope they name one after the PUP NPC that hung around the fountain in Bastok Market. I don't remember exactly how to spell it but every time I ran by I chuckled a bit because it was so ridiculous. Also he was good company while bazaaring during events.

Imagine if all the server names were names of moogles from the games that decided to give them names in.

Kupek
Kupici
Kuporisi etc.

City names might be cool. All the FF7 fans can congregate on the Midgar server. You'll find me over on the Balamb server. :)

I think they should pick random FFXI player names to be used as server names. Imagine it now; you could all be playing on Drofrehter Server. Sounds good to me.

I kinda like the city name idea. I mean you got all kinds of good names. First off gotta have San d'Oria, Bastok, and Windurst and after that we can see stuff like Balamb, Alexandria, Mysidia, Zanarkand, Neo Midgar, Gran Pulse, Baron, etc. The list could be endless, so I'm sure only a select few would make the cut. However personally I would say 3 Xi-starter nations would be a must!

Edit: Can't forget Ivalice gonna be a lot of votes for that one I'm for sure.

Personally I feel naming the servers as they were named in FFXI would be a great idea so XI players that lost touch can hopefully find eachother once again through same or like named characters. I feel it would give almost a certain community strength from day one. The only real downside to that would be how everyone already had "cliques" and new players would be left out in the dark to fend for themselves as groups of old friends worked together to progress.

Well it's already been stated that the servers won't retain the same names they did in XI, SE wanted to go with a new layout.

I'm guessing it will be related to XI in some way and if not I'm leaning towards past FF character names.

Seifer server anyone?

If they make a Quina server I quit the game.

In all seriousness, I could see SE naming a lot of the servers from old FF characters last names. Least I would.

My guess is the initial batch of servers will be named after the Twelve Deities of Eorzea. Probably not the most exciting theme, but appropriate. Subsequently added servers will likely be named for the beast tribes' gods.
