A combination of the NDA and other stuff that I don't know if I can talk about made it rough for us to kind of pick a server and congregate to it. Now with a partial lift of the NDA, it would be nice for ZAM to actually pick a server and make a guild there like we originally had intended before.

Did we ever decide on a name for the guild/linkshell?

To be fair on which server we choose, I'm going to make a poll and I guess the best thing would be to...

*looks around for Usagi*

ROLL A TOON on that server.

((The old school =10 in me would love for us to be on the Kefka server, by the by... Smiley: laugh))

What server do you play on?
Shadowlord:10 (13.2%)
Garland:4 (5.3%)
Gabranth:3 (3.9%)
Kefka:15 (19.7%)
Emperor:4 (5.3%)
Golbez:6 (7.9%)
Ultimecia:12 (15.8%)
Golbez:2 (2.6%)
Sephiroth:5 (6.6%)
Jecht:11 (14.5%)
Exdeath:4 (5.3%)
Total:76

Oh, and I'm on the Gabranth server so far, but I'm all alone.

Some have speculated that those server names may be changed for the release, because the FFXI beta server names were changed.

Even if they do get changed, no reason not to try to enjoy the beta as a group.

Currently on Ultimecia but I could reroll on the drop of a hat. Really want to see how the Leves done as a group compare to solo ones.

I've actually racked my brain on this, much more than I should have but here is my thinking.

Shadowlord - Okay, I've played FFXI for far two long, and it took me about 4 Linkshells to get help with the fight against him, so (no thanks).

Garland - The original big boss, even though he was a push over, he's still a possibility.

Gabranth - I was a fan of 12, so this is still a possibility.

Kefka - What can I say, psychotic, sadistic, mad man who just enjoyed the very idea of causing chaos. He was also the main baddy in the best FF to date so, he's certainly a possibility.

Emperor - I don't remember him, no so thanks.

Golbez - Decent character, bro to the hero, though, ultimately I'm going to decline this one, so no thanks.

Ultimecia - I'm not a fan of any big boss that you don't actually see of until the very end, very shallow, so no thanks.

Sephiroth - No.....**** no.

Jecht - I didn't like 10 that much, so no thanks.

Exdeath - This seemed like a rather shallow character to me as well. Something about him just seemed like he was randomly made, so no thanks.

So that leaves Garland, Gabranth, or Kefka. I can't decide which, so until I do, I can't vote.

I'm on Gabranth, altho Kefka was definitely a first choicer (although i'm sure 97% of every1 else thought so--which is why i avoided it :S)

But with the free LS npc and all, it'll be easy peasy once we just get some "sure why not" together

We should all orchestrate a server to begin on! Even in beta, we could meet up and party.

The officially chosen server of IRC is Ultimecia, but we're going to be re-choosing the server for retail once more is known.

EDIT: Also, you should get in IRC Exo. :)

I'll need to download an IRC client and hop back on like the good ol'days. You DO mean ZAM irc, right? Smiley: dubious

I'm surprised that Ultimecia is the official server. Not that it matters if it gets changed by retail anyway... though personally I don't think this game will be out in September... Gives us plenty of beta fun fodder! Smiley: yippee

Yeah, zam IRC, #FFXIV.

It wasn't like we picked Ultimecia so much as we picked "The last one alphabetically" since we didn't know the names in advance.

That's why we want to see the names at retail and look them over and figure out where to go at Sept 22nd, around 12:30 AM EDT, unless they tell us in advance the server names.

I could be wrong, but I was thinking that they meant Emperor Mateus From FFII, not Gestehl.

LS npc?


In the drowning *something* pub where players meet Baderon and get the guildleve and retainer, there's an "mithra" npc that stands right in front of the retainer npc and Baderon. She wears what I'd immediate associate with a grey PLD AF lookalike and has a greatsword. If you talk to her, you immediately get a LS pearl to which you can customize the name and crest for.

Spam chatting to every npc finally yielded something xD

As someone who got put on Fairy in XI, I don't really care what server we are on. Will go with the majority when the game launches. I'm in Ultimecia currently for the beta.

I m still on the "Earth" Server and waiting to get in one of the "Eorzea" beta severs...

Most likely will follow the decision from the IRC group on 9/22

I'm on Ultimecia since the IRC folks said it was the (un)official ZAM server. Haven't found anyone yet though. I made my surname "Zam" to make it easy to spot me.

Wait until beta keys are handed out, most of the IRC folks have agreed to go there if we get keys.

Awesome. I'll attempt to figure out how to look you up when I get on. Probably won't be til Wednesday tho, since the wifey has the next two nights off (and I'm not allowed to play when she's home, currently).

PS- How is the internet in vans these days? Getting fairly stable, or do you have to keep travelling by the riverfront homes to find new open wifi spots?

...I put Golbez twice?


I think it's a subliminal thing since he used to beat the **** out of me in Dissidia. Just seeing his name makes my arm hairs stand up.

Even in a forum, he ruins me. Smiley: mad

Too late to fix now... guess we could just add the votes on both together. Smiley: laugh

Though, for the most part, everyone in IRC is on Ultimecia, I'm going to go ahead and remake Jin there. Smiley: nod

In a way I'm glad there is a server named Sephiroth. It promises to serve as a fly-trap for the crowd that makes me go, "ugh."

I'm picturing everyone on that server being named "xSepirothx Thegreat", "Cloud Sephiroth" and I garuantee there will be at least one "Sephiroth Sephiroth" (which is actually pretty funny.)

Do you remember "Being John Malkovich" when he enters his own head? There will be a room full of Sephiroths saying, "Sephiroth, Sephiroth - Sephiroth? Sephiroth! Sephiroth!?"
