Since we have very few JP Localized people here, and their time zones don't matter anyway, I'm going to hold off posting anything regarding them.

Legacy EU people: Congrats, you're on Ragnarok. You don't have to think about it. If the New EU folks want to sort theirs by a time other than GMT (or by language), let me know and I'll post a poll.

ZAM limits me to one poll per topic. Very sorry for the spam.

North America NEW EST/CST: What server do you want to declare your time zone territory?
Adamantoise :1 (2.2%)
Behemoth :2 (4.4%)
Cactuar :7 (15.6%)
Coeurl :1 (2.2%)
Diabalos:4 (8.9%)
Gilgamesh:5 (11.1%)
Goblin:2 (4.4%)
Leviathan:8 (17.8%)
Malboro:1 (2.2%)
Midgardsormr:1 (2.2%)
Ultros:13 (28.9%)
Total:45

Hmm, I was kinda hoping all newbies could just be on one server with one big LS. It would still work, the east coast players could have different event schedules or whatever from the west coast players, but it could just be open to anyone who could make the different times.

I was on Gilgamesh on xi also. I won't be going to that one this time though. I like either Cactuar or Leviathan, based solely on the names haha. Time zone doesn't matter much to me as I'll be playing at all random times anyways. I'm in EST time zone but when I play other stuff online I'm hardly ever playing with other wa east coast people anyways due to my available game time.

Leviathan, but I may end up transferring to Ragnarok because I know it'll be a big server (I never really play on the EST schedule anyhow). Still undecided. I am down to starting off on a server with you guys though. This is a very good crowd for the most part.

So my official vote goes for Leviathan. C'mon, Leviathan is way cooler that Ultros!

I'm not going to vote to stay impartial but I will certainly join any Zam LS if you guys want me. I'll keep my existing LS as well but depending on what you guys pick I might be able to convince them to also join the same server.

You guys could just play on the west coast which is also known as the best coast. :)

Edit: No more West Coast... Eastern Canadia.

Have they decided to do data centers outside Washington & Cali yet?




Data centers are in Montreal and Japan. No more, no less.

Montreal? Nice, only about 150km from here (or 93 miles for you Americans). Should be some nice latency.

Dang that sucks, I'm from Washington and I ping the Japanese SE website at 15-25 ms and the montreal website at 105. Hopefully that's because of server traffic and not a preview of coming attractions.

I'm gunning for Leviathan or pretty much anything that isn't Ultros. However I'll probably end up wherever the Zam community goes, and badger my other friends to join with xP

Note: I don't have anything against the server choice, but whenever I think of Ultros, I keep imagining him saying "U Mad?"

I'm also from Chicago. With no servers designated for central time, I usually lean toward the east coast because it's marginally closer. In this case, if the data center really is in Montreal (which may as well be on the east coast), it doesn't make much difference.

The baseline fee for the game enables people to have a character on every server. So no loss there.

I'm an Altaholic so I'll probably have several characters on different servers. Probably going to keep "Hyrist" on Midgardsormr, where he originated. But I may also hold off on rolling him until they've got fencer/red mage out.

Ultros wins my heart for sure. I'm not a legacy player but I did play at the previous game launch. I have a renewed interest recently, and joining a linkshell formed by members of one of the most pleasant fansite/forum around sounds good to me. Hope to see you all around soon.

Hmm, since Ultros seems to be winning in both of the polls for the New server, why don't we just designate that as the ZAM non-Legacy server? Plenty of ideas have been thrown out there for how to deal with the different time zones. There are only two server locations, in Japan and Montreal. I was under the impression we'd have a couple of servers located in each time zone in the US. That's not the case, so how about we consolidate into the most popular server choice here?

That's not a bad idea actually. Since there's only one datacenter for the entirety of not-Japan, it might make more sense to unify the east and west coast communities, at least as far as Zam goes.

So you'd be left with US-New, US-Legacy, EU-New, and EU-Legacy.

That's not that bad.

I definitely like the idea of having both East and West coast together on one server. Some east coaster might stay up late.

I also like the idea of separation of legacy and non-legacy, but then again, why doesn't everyone wanna play together?

I'm from the Jersey, anyone from Jersey or near it?

Well, we don't have a choice. Legacy players cannot port their 1.0 characters over to a new server.

I'll make my new character on the ZAM New server, but I will have to leave Catwho on Balmung.

Well, can make my new char on Ultros. I believe my legacy char was also on Balmung. Hopefully I can find a new shell there as my last two ended up disbanding towards then end of 1.0.

Okay, since the Legacy EU server is obviously Ragnarok, what about for the new EU folks? I was thinking of rolling on Odin to be around the different languages I speak. I wouldn't mind making a ZAM LS for the EU folks here that plan to start with a fresh character...if there are any.

How about this:
Every few days a new poll will be posted by a designated pollster. The poll will start with a list of all the servers available that ZAM members would be willing to play on. Ever 3 days, or 5, or even a week, the server with the most votes gets removed from the list and a new poll will be made with the remaning servers. Eventually there will be on only one! That last one can become the ZAM LS server. It'll be like Surviver, sans any immunity of course.

It's fairly annonymous and everyone can have say.

We can always put up a poll on whether have a server poll is a good idea.

The East Coast preferred server is Balmung, while West Coast preferred server is Hyperion.

Neither has been designated the "unofficial ZAM server" just yet.

My vote is for Excalibur- As the majority of my LS has voted to go there (and I just checked.. the world is still revolving around me). I only moonlighted on the ZAM linkshell on Rabanastre for a few months. It was during the "ugly" days of XIV and there were never more than one or two people online..It seems a fair amount from Durandal have also chosen this server has the destination
