What's in a Name?
June 04, 2013

Greetings everyone!
Fernehalwes here!

OMG!!!!!!1!!!
It's less than two weeks until the launch of the third phase of the beta test!!!!!!!1!!!11!1!
OMGUBITB'IBi567'&ri6r76vB&r6rfUfr676r'IR&!B!&R!BBR&!BR!1

Yes, but you didn't come here to watch me get all hot and bothered, you came here for deep-fried, juicy, golden-brown nuggets of exclusive info (with your choice of barbecue, honey mustard, or sweet and sour sauces). Well, my friends, dinner is served.

I bring to you tonight...World server names!



(crickets chirping...)




I know, I know. Server names aren't quite as **** as pics of...oh, let's say...a new job, but still, it's something, right?
(I'm not going to say that Yoshi-P's hoarding all the cool stuff for E3, but Yoshi-P's hoarding all the cool stuff for E3.)


And so, without further delay, your Beta 3 World names!


▼New Worlds (Enemies from FINAL FANTASY)
 
Group JP 	Group NA/EU 
Atomos 	          Adamantoise 
Bahamut 	Behemoth 
Chocobo 	Cactuar 
Garuda 	           Coeurl 
Ifrit 	           Diabolos 
Mandragora 	Gilgamesh 
Ramuh 	           Goblin 
Tiamat 	           Leviathan 
Titan 	           Malboro 
Tonberry 	Midgardsormr 
- 	        Ultros 
- 	        Cerberus (EU) 
- 	        Moogle (EU) 
- 	        Odin (EU) 
- 	        Shiva (EU)


▼Legacy Worlds (used for 1.0 data transfer)
 
Group JP 	        Group NA/EU 
Aegis (LEGACY) 	        Balmung (LEGACY) 
Durandal (LEGACY) 	Excalibur (LEGACY) 
Gungnir (LEGACY) 	Hyperion (LEGACY) 
Masamune (LEGACY) 	Sargatanas (LEGACY) 
Ridill (LEGACY) 	Ragnarok (LEGACY/EU)


As you can see, servers are divided up into two groups: JP (recommended for Japan) and NA/EU (recommended for North America and Europe). Remember, just because a World is recommended for a certain region does NOT mean the World can only be joined by players from that region. The recommendations are based solely on the physical location of the World servers.

I personally pushed for a Fernehalwes server, but it was shot down because, unlike the cool kids Odin, Shiva, Bahamut, and the rest, I've not appeared in any FINAL FANTASY titles. We'll have to do something about that...

Hm, its nice to see that you can join servers from different regions some people play in weird times for their regions so its good to have that option.

Edited, Jun 5th 2013 12:09pm by Killua125


Just some estimations here, nothing concrete but 35 servers... 20,000 per server would only be 700,000 players. I think that's easily reachable on launch, considering 1.0 had probably 300,000-400,000 on launch (600,000+ copies shipped) and that was without PS3 players. Also considering beta phase 2 had 250,000 players and there are still tons of people who didn't get into that. Will they sustain those numbers? Who knows... but better to have too many servers and consolidate later than not enough and have huge server queues.

edit: and in case anyone can't tell, I'd say those numbers are being fairly cautious.

If there was too few, that would be a problem, but when every server has its own separate economy and community, 35 seems like too many for ARR...

At least the server merges and name changes aren't such a big deal with mandatory surnames.

The balance between Legacy/non-Legacy is also a little weird, and I noticed there's no oceanic or RP labeled servers (or is there?)

I would venture to guess they based those numbers off of the pre-orders from the previous week. IMO they got the pre-order numbers and determined the amount of servers from there. Planning can only get you so far but from what I can see it was done with the best available information they had.

So your gut instinct is what they're going by to judge how many servers they need? This game is DOOOOOMED!

I bet Oceanic would go to JP or NA i guess. As for the RP yea i guess they should have that choice cause many people do RP i am not one of them though too hard on my nerves sometimes if i remember my wow days.

The Oceanic region is closest to the JP timezone, but they would probably want to be labeled on top of an NA server for language barrier reasons. I guess they can update that, and an RP server later (don't care about RP myself, but people usually prefer an 'official' RP server over an unofficial community selected RP server).

What I'm wondering here is which are west and which are east-coast servers for the NA region. NA's a big place.. that distinction is kind of important.

I think that's going to be for the players to decide.

Personally, I have no problem making Balmung the Legacy server an "east coast" server. But others may disagree and think it ought to be a west coast server.

I loved in xi that there was a lot people from all regions on the servers (I don't think they were separated by region back then?) No matter what time I played there was always a lot of people on since the server had so many people from different time zones, and the auto translate was fun.

So all the NA servers are located in the same physical place? If that's the case then it doesn't matter.. I'm hoping it isn't the case.

I get hosed no matter what because I'm in the midwest, but New York is still a slightly shorter trip for my packets than California is.

Seems kind of bizarre to me just as a matter of server traffic. They used to be utilizing the servers for most of the day--they'd just have the crowd rotate in and out depending on peak times. But this way, there will be dead times on all servers. Off-peak players will find an empty world, and they'll be using their server management resources way less efficiently.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

I'm not sure of any games which set up separate server locations for East and West. I've played games from New York on "East" servers, and I still always get about 86ms to the server in California or Washington, so I think they usually do that for people's convenience/timezone reasons.

Maybe its just me but if I had to pick a new server I wouldn't pick one that says Group JP. 1) because the server is for a different region and 2) because I'm sure a lot more JP players are going to pick a JP server which means I will be one of a few NA players in this JP server. Now, I'm pretty sure that logic will also follow the JP. Why go to a server that is likely to have 1) people that are not in your time zone and 2) people that don't understand you?

I don't think my original statement was wrong. Does that, above not make sense or am I thinking about this wrong?

To be honest, WFO, I can't make an informed decision about which server I'll play on just yet. I don't know if, for example, me being on the east coast would be problematic if I decided to join a server that's located on the west coast. When I play the beta and find that there's no issue, I'll probably join an EU server because I speak different languages: Spanish, French, etc. I would fit right in, so it doesn't matter to me. I wouldn't play on a JP server not because I don't speak enough Japanese, but because I'm not always awake during JP prime time. It has nothing to do with segregation. Pick a relevant server to your preferred play schedule or go wherever the **** you want if lag truly won't be an issue.

I see what you're saying WFO. I don't think it's meant as segregation, but I can understand how people would migrate to servers of their own country. Unless I joined an LS that was going to a JP server, I would most likely pick an NA server simply because of the language barrier. I don't speak Japanese at all, so it would seemingly be more difficult to play on a JP server if they are the majority of the playerbase.

Am I the only one who thinks the new server names are 1000x cooler than the Legacy server names? I mean, I'm (we're) being forced to chose from some random end game sword like Hyperion or Sarganqfaasrd. I wish they would have renamed them something canon like the other new servers.

While I'm lamenting certain states of affairs, I wish there was an option to just ditch all of my gil and start on a new server. Oh well.

My reply to your first post wasn't to tell you you're wrong, it was really to say that is what the people asked for. And also, that using "Civil Rights" was a little overboard. I didn't mean anything by it. :)

Now, I'm pretty sure that logic will also follow the JP. Why go to a server that is likely to have 1) people that are not in your time zone and 2) people that don't understand you?

I don't think my original statement was wrong. Does that, above not make sense or am I thinking about this wrong?


My reply to your first post wasn't to tell you you're wrong, it was really to say that is what the people asked for. And also, that using "Civil Rights" was a little overboard. I didn't mean anything by it. :)


I had written an essay on the seriousness of civil rights and the insignificance of a gaming server. Then karma ersaed my rant. Don't let karma eradicate you too. Think of the kittens!

You can transfer it to any of the designated Legacy servers only.

Let me know where you end up. Seeing this will be a JP server I am also left homeless.

Edit: I forgot about the sticky thread Catwho started. We will all know where to go for ZAM servers

Not exactly. You'll log into your character on the predetermined server. However, you can apply for a transfer to another legacy server if you so desire.

Quote:
In the event that your character data has been transferred to an undesired region, we ask that you submit a World transfer application. Applications will be accepted during phase 3, and transfers will occur during phase 4.

Please read over the details of the World transfer before filling out the application.

Not only ZAM specific servers, but is there a ZAM specific LS? It seems like it would be pretty cool that you get to play with people that you see post on the forums. We could all argue in real time in the game!

Will the ZAM server be Legacy, though? If it is, I may have to sit out. I'd rather start on a new server.

There's inevitably going to be a divide. There are a lot of people here sticking with the legacy servers, and others like you that want to start fresh.

Well, in that case, we can have two designated servers. I imagine most of us here are NA. I'd like to see if latency will be an issue with the regional server locations.

Talked to a fellow Aegis LS leader and we agreed that we're moving to Hyperion. So at least two big linkshells will be making the move from Aegis to Hyperion.

looks like Im going to Gilgamesh.. thats my favorite of the NA server names listed...

Btw how do we know if the servers that ARENT marked "legacy" are new players ONLY.. because from the looks of it it looks to me like ONLY legacy players can join a legacy server but ANYONE (legacy and non legacy) can join the non legacy servers.. is that about right?

You have it reversed. Legacy worlds can have new players or legacy players but new servers can only have new characters.

A legacy account holder can make a new character on a new server and start over, or use their 1.0 server in a Legacy world.
