I found FFXIV unlike FFXI, spliting up the japanese and US/canadian and european players but giving them specific servers is a bad idea.
One thing i love about FFXI is you can log in any time in the hour action never ends.
But the way FFXIV setup really make me worries about the game future. It will definitely end up like WoW, heavy queue , heavy camp during peak hour, and Dead hours afterward where no one plays.
If anything like besieged to happen, the server won't last long enough and will suffer every defeat.
