(and sorry in advance if I bore everyone out of their minds with this question),
I used to play FFXI (on Shiva) back in 2004/05 and was quite in love with the game, but more with the awesome community of players worldwide. It was a pain with me being in central Europe sometimes either playing really early in the day with the Japanese, or really late with the Americans, but awesome nonetheless. I still remember playing every morning with a bunch of Hawaiians in the "Night Shift Squad", the name beig related to the fact that it was late night where they were playing from. Happy times.
I am seriously considering starting FFXIV, now that the game has become really cheap and the patches seem to make it better bit by bit. My big question is: What server do I choose?
I liked the international atmosphere on Shiva and I didn't mind playing late (or early) in the day, but still it would be nice to have some Europeans online at the same time (I'm in the UK now). So, to summarize, I would like an international server that is not populated exclusively by Europeans but has decent number of players from all over, including players from Asia which I have made nice experiences cooperating with :) I also don't mind roleplaying / "in character" playing.
Thanks very much in advance, guys :)
