^ This. New players will have a choice of joining established servers or starting out on their own in a new world. Server transfers will be locked for a while after re-launch though to prevent large amounts of gil or rare items from flooding the new servers.
But eventually we should all get a chance to switch right? Even if weve been playing on established servers? Basically some buddies of mine want me to start over on their server but I think I should just wait it out and hope I can transfer.
