Why not just say, "we will no longer be accepting character creation in these worlds," huh?
Look, everyone and their dog wants to come to particular servers. Excalibur, being mine, and I know people want to go there, for one. Why are they letting servers get over populated? Why not just come out an say they will suspend character creation, indefinitely, add in a date when world transfers will be available, and let that be it? Right now, there are people waiting, playing a stupid character, for the server to come back up. Stop leading people on?
Am i the only one who feels this way?
Look, FFXI had it right. Cap the server capacity, once its capped, the only way to join a world is by server transfer, and wait, the only way to get into a server, was to be invited by a friend. That way the only people that are coming in over capacity are wanted and have a place in the world. I would even go as far as to say, just make world designation random, like FFIX too, but no one will like that because that screws all the 1.0 players. Maybe allow them to choose and new players go in at random, unless invited with a code from another player?
Anyone agree? I have three friends that are waiting because my server is full. I would be much happier if they knew that 3-6months I could invite them with a world transfer buddy pass. That's how I feel. Its upsetting knowing that my friends are getting shafted and I have to deal with an influx of new players that have no ties to my server, or yours, except the name is cool.
