Lodestone http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/news/information (snipped from the central part of the announcement):

Quote:
With initial stability issues solved, and in anticipation of the influx of new venturing adventurers during the holiday period, a re-allocation of server populations is sheduled for December 22nd. As we wish to greet the most recent recruits into the adventurer's guild with a overwhelming and booming "Welcome!", several of the auxiliary servers established between October and November will finally be unified. A special event to celebrate this most historic moment will be held on December 21st in each realm's capital, with exact locations for Gridania, Limsa Lominsa and Ul'dah to be anounced shortly.

At present, candidate worlds for this special event are:

- Selbina and Rabanastre
- Cornelia and Wutai
- Karnak and Saronia
- Palmecia and Bodhum
- Fabul and Istory

Stay tuned for further details!

Aww. Come on. Who would fall for it on Friday?
Besides, my right foot ("Rupert") tells me I might not be too far from the truth after all...

<~ Fell for it, but only because it seems so plausible! Nice imitation of SE's writing style, too; you're the first person I've ever seen get it right! XD

Good deal, although I might have to have a duel to the death with the Kubla Khan that's already on Bodhum. Smiley: grin

It was my first choice.

I almost fell for it, but then I realized SE's PR department could never be so good as too craft a news release making server merges seem like a good thing.

And so, from this day forward, let it be known that FFXIV forums has "Happy Tuesday"? <_<;

I was half fooled myself, though I wasn't quite since I hadn't seen it on the lodestone only a few hours ago, so I thought it odd that it appeared at this time, heh.

They actually need to do that but they wont to avoid media bashing "lolol game is dead already merging servers"

Everybody knows servers are near empty atm (500-700 per server before they removed the search function) not many people playing and once they start charging the servers will be like empty ghost towns

A merge will come very soon and they will use some kind of an excuse that's for sure

If they merge it'll be after the PS3 release depending on how things go there...but don't expect a merge anytime soon.

I was fooled as well :o

I saw my server on that list had the "oh no what will I do if my name is already used on the merging server" But then saw it was fake. Sigh of relief and I'm good now :)
