What servers have the highest amount of English speakers..?Follow

I'm trying to decide on a server, but I don't want to commit to the game until I know I can have some human interaction. Rabanastre is so antisocial. Which leads me to think people don't speak english there.

What server is best for English-speaking players? I'm in the U.S. I wouldn't mind playing with AU or UK or whatever. Long as they spoke english and was actually SOCIAL.

Please help?

Cornelia has about a 50-50 rate but most American players tend to talk in /l or /p only, except when looking for a behest group. I'm currently in a very active LS with the max amount of members, all of which speak English fluently

There are multiple languages on all servers. But English is the most common language on all. I'm on Fabul and the only other language I see sometimes is Japanese.

I guess most single-non-English-language players are in linkshells?

On Palamecia in /say I hear about 80% Japanese, 20% English. The odds are a bit better for English in /shout.
In parties (Behest) there's usually me and maybe 2 other persons in a 15/15 one who are English speakers. This all may just be due to my timezone though.... I wouldn't mind more input from other Palamecians.

Considering the majority of the world teaches a useful trade language like English, the majority of people on every server will at least have a basic grasp on it. Unlike us Americans who mostly focus on more local languages like Spanish instead of Chinese or whatever would benefit us in a big market position.

I'm living in the UK and most of the people on when I get off work are JP or EU (lots of French and I think Swedes unless it's another Scandanvian dialect lately in /say). I haven't run into any one yet that couldn't communicate with basic English or proper use of autotranslator. I'd say for NA primetime you'd find mostly English speaking players on every server.

Rab? Antisocial?

Ok. Whatever you want to believe.

I think you need to define "social" for us because I've had absolutely the opposite experience in Rab. If you are looking for people to talk in shout or say all the time you won't find that on any server. People are mostly social when engaged in business or with their linkshells.

You know, some how I missed that bit...

OP characters are free, make one on a few servers until you find one you like...

Yeah, I think Besaid would be a good option. :)

Well, there are different forms of English. English, American English, Ebonical-American English, etc.

Some linguists predict that "proper English" will be completely redefined as a vague concept within the next few decades.
Anyhow, I never asked if any servers had "proper" English speakers.

Just looking for a LS to meet people. I've been trying to find LS to join. As well as parties to join.
I came to the assumption that either Rabanastre is anti-social or no one understands English due to having posted a lot lately in LS seeking topics on different websites. I rarely get replies.
I'm not looking to talk in shout or say.

Well, basic English and auto-translate comes in handy when you are seeking parties and items and such.
Not for actual communication and making friends. I really like that aspect of online gaming. When I played FF11, it seemed easy to make friends, but perhaps it is the crisis that FF14 is currently in that prevents such experiences?

Personally I think no one can answer that question but yourself. Since it is still free to create multiple characters, why don't you create one in each world and get a feel of the amount of English-speaking players during your play time? Yes it might take a lot of time, but ultimately you want to make the right choice based on your own observations and not other people's opinions.
