World Passes?Follow

I haven't played the Beta yet as I'm seeing some negative, and I was to just experience the final product and enjoy it for what it is at that time. I have a friend that is playing the beta and I want to make sure I can play with him when the final comes out.

Do we know if there will be an equivalent to a World Pass in XI that will guarantee me that I'll be on the same server as him? On launch day will I be able to pick the server I want and make sure it is the same as him or is there a reasonable chance that it will be full and I won't have the option?

I've looked through several pages of the forum but couldn't find anything regarding this and I don't have a premium account to search, so sorry if it has been asked before.

When you create your character, you then pick a server from the list. So drawing from my mmo experience, as long as the server isn't a high population server at start up, you probably will be fine. I have heard nothing about world passes for this title.

Or, you could both simply create your characters on the same server at the same time. He will not be able to keep his beta character, so he could create a new one on any server he likes, unless he is worried about his name, which is the only thing guaranteed to be carried over to release. But at release, I doubt it would be an issue anyhow. A few months down the road, then you might have problems getting the same name on a different server. Especially if it is a really cool one and someone seen it and remembered it.

That is what I was thinking the case would be. I think we both use unique names so keeping it shouldn't be so bad. I'm taking 3 days off work to play when it comes out, so I'll be early in the signup except for the Collectors Edition people.

One think I'd like to mention is initially, I was a bit late to get into open beta. The rest of the people I was following went to Cornelia, and when I tried, Cornelia was NOT on the list of servers. I thought all was lost, but decided to spend some time closing XIV completely, and retrying. After an hour or so Cornelia appeared. Promptly after I logged on, I let others know, who ran into the initial problem.

I don't honestly expect this @ release, especially for CE.

But I want to make sure people know to try, try again.
