Hello fellow Ultros players on ZAM! I know some of you are in the same boat as me: waiting for them to unlock character creation for Ultros so that our friends/family can join us on our glorious server! I made a thread in the technical support forum at the official FFXIV forums hoping to bring some attention to this issue as from what I know we've been locked for character creation since the 9/3/13 maintenance! If you'd like to post in the thread I made to bump it and bring some more attention to the issue that would be great!

Here's a link to the thread:

They are well aware of which servers are locked for new characters. They are actively monitoring the server populations and locking the servers which are constantly reaching their simultaneous connection limit. This is to prevent server crashes, so they won't change the policy because you asked nicely.

They have been posting news about this everyday on the official website. The list of locked/unlocked servers is updated several times a day: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/news/detail/80cd4583bf743600105b947d6906d0909189e479

I have a solution!!! Take all your friends and family and go on another server! Then they will lift the restrictions and some more of my friends can get in!

Seriously though what are you doing, petitioning them to open the server? Do you even know why the restrictions are in place?
#4Humanreck, Posted: Sep 09 2013 at 5:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Seriously though, are you unable to comprehend what you read? Do you know what a petition looks like? Does the post I linked look anything like a petition? Yes I know why the restrictions are in place, moreso than you in fact since I've been looking for additional information on the subject rather than blindly accepting what Square feeds us in prepared statements.

Im not sure you understand why they have restrictions.

Take your friends and family and go to a non restricted server.

Making petitions on their main forum, and now here, isn't going to magically make them able to support more players than the server can handle.

Also after a certain point, quality of play decreases as more people are on the server...another reason they don't just let everyone on one mega server.

If you want so badly to play with people locked out, there is a very easy solution as mentioned in this thread a few times.

This.

Despite being locked up like ever since launch, Masamune was being hammered last night. 15 seconds frozen lag spike in instance boss fight, whelps.

Isn't Ultros the official 4chan and reddit server? Why would anyone willingly join that server?

I went ahead and posted here and there in the Forums about the Character Creation restrictions (I'm trying to get friends and family onto Hyperion myself). They know this is an issue. I still feel that politely worded feedback on the Forum is essential to helping SE set priorities.

I would have to say that this is pretty much priority #1 according to Yoshida himself.

In the end, it looks like whatever is coming in Thursday's patch should help the situation even further.

Isn't Ultros the official ZAM server, as well? :| At least I believe that is where the linkshell was created, as there is a sticky at the top of the Forum.

Gilgamesh is the Reddit server.

And yes, when my real life friends discovered this, they picked up and moved wholesale to Lamia so the rest of us could join them.

At the time we picked Ultros to be the official ZAM server, we were unaware that 4chan also had designs on it.

Yoshi P said they're working on getting world transfers ready but I suspect Ultros is going to remain locked down for some time.

My husband and I are on separate servers because Cactuar (the server me and all our friends are on) remains locked. Server transfers don't really leave me hopeful, because I doubt they'll open up Cactuar to transfer to, when its already full to bursting. Rerolling isn't an option at this time, since the vast majority of our friends are already rooted in Cactuar. Its an unpleasant situation.
