Does every one elses new home feel much happier? I thought there'd be a lot of grumping about not getting online or grumping about having to merge etc... But there are/were people everywhere! And they were just standing around talking, just chatting about stuff. They were at all the camps in Gridania (none of the 4 main camps I visited had less than 5 people actually moving around.. so wierd), I'm assuming Ul'Dah is a nightmare... But overall there seems to be this sense of almost a rebirth for the game, I didn't really expect this sort of thing until after 2.0.

Obviously we'll see how long it lasts, but people were partying up on low level classes in a city that rarely see's any low level (if any level) traffic at the times I play during the work week. The feelings may fade over itme, people may go back to not saying a word to eachother, and LSs will rebuild/recruit and become large silent entities as far as the general population is concerned...

But for now, I'm excited and I can't wait to play this weekend.

Well, I will say even though I don't play, I'm excited for the community and hopeful maybe the population numbers for servers will be better for the time being.

Its great. I got into 2 new LS and they are both great. People where shouting a lot in Ul'dah and it was like being at WhtGate. This game is going in the right direction, and I'm glad I re-subscribed to catch up on the added story content tat will lead to meteor... ' '

This is very encouraging. I should be starting back for the first time since October, 2010 very soon, and I can't wait to see the changes they've made.

A well populated world is a happy world. Good adventuring! I'm finding people to lvl with again. Darn those long breaks I took! I fell behind most of my LS mates. :(

Okay, I've been out of the loop for awhile, but I'm going to assume Rabanastre is no more, so if i reactivate my account, will I be moved there?

Yeah you're still on the LS I think, we lost a few people though so I'm guessing some of the folks who never logged onto the LS did apply for transfers... unless there's some weirdness going on.

If you come back let me know... I still have plenty of jobs to get to 50 ^^

After weeks of anticipation, my wife and I finally logged back in for the first time since launch. The game feels fantastic this time around, and yes, I've noticed a lot of activity at least in the Uldah area. I was given the heads up that the other towns stay pretty empty, so we may the smart decision to start where the market wards were kicking.

So far everything has been great. Leveling feels like a joke though. At launch, we spent three weeks grinding to 20~ because there were no good camps and mobs were sparse to say the least. Now everything respawns very quickly, there's mobs everywhere, the leve system is better, and they did away with that annoying physical level / class level distinction. After 3 hours of play (30 minutes of which involved my wife deciding which shade of black to make her miqo'te) we're already lvl 12 Glad and Conjurer. We'll be caught up with our old characters in another day or two, which really makes me want those three weeks of my life back from launch.

I am enjoying my new home on Durandal. There are lots of new people I have talked to and partied with from both servers.

Ul'dah is very loud and busy. It is fun to answer random shouts and go with a PUG to do the AF quests.

I hope when we get 2.0 all this lag will be gone though, its a pain.
