Figaro is a fairly populated server as well. Back when we were able to check, Figaro would always put up one of the higher population numbers. I do remember at one time it was known as the unofficial "JP server" way back when the game was first getting started. I have no problem finding NA players nor feel as though the JP players greatly outweigh the NA/EU players so I don't know how true that is.
