Reuniting with long lost friendsFollow

Soon after the game was announced I seem to remember SE saying there would be an official list or something similar telling players which servers to go to if they played 11 and want to reunite with friends they may have lost touch with.

Example: Odin(11) players go to Besaid(14)
Fenrir(11) players go to Selbina(14)

So my question is does anyone else remember this announcement? I'm pretty sure it was in some interview way back but im having a hard time finding it. If I am mistaken and this was never said, is it possible they will do something like this?, or are we pretty much screwed if we didnt keep in touch with everyone from your server.

btw, this is 1st post on alla in 6 years, please go easy on me ^^ lol

I'm currently still on Fenrir. Just many friends I've lost touch with and think it would be fun to start on a server where I already could possibly know hundreds of people. I also think this would be a good way for SE to at least partially balance the servers without much work on their part. I swear though they made this announcement somewhere... at least I really hope they did.

You have the right idea, but it's not correct. As I understand it, if you have both FFXI and FFXIV linked to your Square Enix account, your FFXI character name will carry over to FFXIV, with your prior server's name as your surname. For example, had I continued to play FFXI, I would be on Lakshmi right now. If I chose to keep my name, my FFXIV name would be Ralrra Lakshmi.
FFXI-Garuda 2003-2009; Lakshmi 2011-8/20/13 (retired)
FFXIV: ARR - Ghost Bear, Balmung server

I remember hearing about this far before the name thing was announced, but with the amount of views and so little response here I'm starting to think I'm wrong. I've been following this release for a very long time now (before it was even codenamed rapture) and was really looking forward to them implementing this. I Guess its still possible they will but I wont hold my breath.

Actually I think I know what you're talking about but I don't think they meant servers. What I think they wanted to try and do was to be able to transfer the friend list over from Xi. Idk if they're still gonna try and do that, since they don't want to use POL for any future stuff, I'd assume Friend List would be uploaded to SE account and from there all games could access it. Honestly idk, be nice to keep in contact with friend list through mail even if playing on two different games.
