About to start playing ffxiv, wondering which server is the most populated with en speaking people?

Searched around for posts like this one, but only found "outdated" ones.

Hmm good question, maybe wait till after the server merge happens (27th March?)?
Can you see what it is yet?

After March 27th:

Selbina -> Ridill
Wutai + Gysahl -> Masamune
Rabanastre + Cornelia -> Durandal
Melmond + Figaro -> Aegis
Istory + Mysidia -> Gungnir
Saronia + Lindblum -> Sargatanas
Fabul + Besaid -> Balmung
Trabia + Kashuan -> Hyperion
Karnak + Palamecia + Bodhum -> Excalibur
Ragnarok -- New Server suggested for EU players

Keep this in mind. Given that Selbina is going over intact with a minor name change, that seems to be the most populated at the moment. But this will all change in 10 days.

Im going to return to this game (installing right now actually) but i have some concerns about the server transfer. I went to the application and every server is full except Ragnarok. So im wondering am i going to be forced to transfer to Ragnarok or will i still go to the default server, which in my case is Balmung. I would rather go to the default server if everything else is full

You don't need to do anything if you want to stay with your default server. All characters, active or inactive, on the 2 servers being merged will be moved to the new server. The others appear locked because the time to transfer is almost up.
Second Stage: From 1:00 a.m. PDT, March 12 (Monday) to 0:59 PDT, March 19 (Monday), 2012.
- Worlds that are populated with the maximum allowable characters will be fixed and locked.
- Locked Worlds cannot be selected as a transfer destination.
- As well, all players in locked Worlds will no longer be able to apply for World transfers.
 For this reason, we recommend that players complete their World transfer applications in the First Stage.

I'm on Besaid, since 1.21 there has been a huge spike in population here.

So is the Besaid population generally all going over to 'Balmung' or are many switching to something different?

Most of the people I know are staying. The only people who are leaving seem to be like a very small portion of the EU population on the server to move to the EU only server. But I'd say a large majority is staying.
