Server names - a thoughtFollow

I'm kinda hoping (although I'm pretty sure this won't be the case) that XIV uses the same server names as XI. I figure if they use the same server names, it would be easy for players from XI to find each other on XIV; non need to organize 10-20 people to all get together and try to choose one.

That way I could just create my character on Carbuncle, and anyone who wants to find me knows where to look.

Rumor around here is they will be using a different naming scheme but I took the fact that some of the characters played at E3 were named after the FFXI servers as a sign that they are using the same names. Of course, if the game is too popular they'll run out of summons to name the servers after...unfortunately I don't see it becoming that popular.

Well In all the final fantasy series there are similar names. So I think its a good posibility server names will be similar to what they are in 11. Makes scence on a buisness side too, why pay people to make up names when you already have a list that works?

That would be cool, and like you said, I think they're probably going to come up with new names for the servers. Another stepping stone is if old friends rename themselves the same way. I know I'm going with a different name this time, using my own name last time was dumb. I remember thinking, "Wow, I got the my name. I can't believe it wasn't taken!" Then got into the game and saw nobody was in the same boat of naming there characters that way.

Also, I've been seeing a lot more assumptions on the boards lately that we'll all be able to choose a server. This is all speculation right? I have not seen anything confirming that and I really doubt that will be an option, however I hope I'm wrong.

Stay classy Allakhazam!

Oh God, I can anticipate the anger and rage if that's the case, especially when you consider all the people out there who want to start together.

Not allowing people to choose a server would quite possibly be the worst thing they could ever do. I mean, they could tell us right now that they are canceling the PC and PS3 versions entirely, releasing the game for N64 in December and for Colecovision in April, jack up the monthly fee to $35 per 2 hours of playtime, and not allowing people to choose servers would STILL be the dumbest thing they could do.

Probably not THAT extreme but yeah it definatly wouldn't be a good choice on there part. Could cut down some loyalty.

I don't remember where I heard this from; I might even just be imagining it. But I thought I heard that SE is definitely not going with the XI server naming scheme?

The beta server is called Ultimecia, wasn't XI's beta server Cactuar or something like that?

I hate to give you the bad news but you couldnt pick your server in FFXI when it was released. I wouldnt put it past SE to do the same in FFXIV!

If they're naming them after bosses, I'm staying the **** away from Sephiroth and Jenova servers.

Zeromus and Exdeath should be fine.

They did say that it won't be the same as XI, but that it will be something familiar to fans of the series.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Oh God yes, count me out of those two too. I'd be down for some good FFT boss names though...

In one of the interviews they've definitely already stated that they won't be using the same server names, but they will be using a naming scheme that will be familiar to fans of the FF series.

Names of monsters?
Names of animals?
Names of characters?
Names of weapons?

I thought they said the naming scheme would be based on villains/antagonists? If true, keep me away from the Sephiroth server.

It'd be more like 65 per 2 hours: playing on an N64 could brand the game as "vintage" and of course, "vintage" stuff is worth oh so much more money.
